This one is well worth the time and $ but starts slow but gets the job done in the way only Vachss is so well known for. This is not a Burke novel and some may try to hold it to that litmas, but it is best left judged as a stand alone work if you are a Burke fan. Vachss has once again given us an education in an area most will never have the courage to ever go and make it a pleasure to experience. So sit back and enjoy.
If you are a JLB fan w/ Will Patton as Nar. than you get the draw of the coupling!!! If not, well , you havent istened enough. Burke is by far the king of is style and Patton has the voice to capure what this novel, witch leaves you wanting more, takes you to, a time past that is not flatering but so real you can taste it.
it is flawless through every transition, never forced or off beat, Perfect timing.
The wink. It is the tread that runs true through the entire book, or the meaning of it anyway.
Yes and I did.
Once again we get to see reality through the eyes of a master story teller and word smith, that has the abiliy to make one feel every emoition God gave us, in spades. Thank you Mr Burke and Mr Patton for a wonderful day.
The black humor, not dark, black!!!
All were perfect
Kill'em & let God sort'em out.
Thank you for this series, you must have had a hell of a time finding a publisher!!!!
Well after months of waiting for another heafty dose of Thor, we get this female alomost thriller. Why?
It was an alright story but come on Brad, hows about a little meat next time please.
Still a fan in Houston.
Lee Child never fails to entertain and Worth Dying For is one more fabulous novel in a line of great novels! You might think The Reacher character would be near the end, however Child has upped the anty one more time. I loved this one from start to finish. Worth Dying For has action from start to finish and has no filler in between. Dick Hill is the master of his craft and never so much as Reacher.
Thank you Mr Child for a wonderful ride and please keep them coming.

My goodness where has Ben Coes been. Please do yourself a favor and buy this one.
Power Down is a mix of Flynn's, Mitch Rapp guts, Thor's, Scott Harvath painful humor, and can it even be compared to Andrew Vachss's action? OH YES AND MORE!!! Trust me when I say you will absolutely enjoy POWER DOWN. I have listened to every book in every series that is remotely of this type of thriller and Ben Coes has done the unthinkable with his first outing in matching step for step with even my favorite Ted Bell with Alex Hawk. The one thing this book is missing is fluff. No mind numbing deep delving into why the trees are so green just to add words to the page. As I listened it just got better!
So do Power Down and Ben Coes the favor of our support and enable him to give us a second installment with the amazing Dewey Andeas, the Rapp and Harvath of this great Thriller.

There's a reason Flynn is considered the king of the hill when it comes to this brand of thriller! He's has done it again with American Assassin. Although its been a long time coming, this latest Mitch Rapp adventure does not disappoint and has been worth the wait. It is as fresh as the first installment of the series, Transfer of Power, and continues to be up to date as today's news, as are all his novels. Brad Thor, Daniel Silva, Stephen Coonts, WEB Griffin and maybe even Ted Bell, with the amazing Sir Alexander Hawk are all paying homage to American Assassin this morning as being the new benchmark,
Thank you Mr.Fynn for always producing first rate material that is narrated by the master with a voice that make the words come alive, Mr George Guidall.
This Thriller is worth the credits or dollars and has left me waiting for the next Vince Flynn installment

On a scale of 1-5 Warlord is a 6. Bell has absalutely done it again!!! This is the best of the series and will keep you laughing or intrench until the very end. Thank you Mr. Bell for such a wounderful batch of caractors with a narrator that is unmatch in a story that can only come from the vivid mind of Master Dr Bell.
Absolutely the Best. Where has this novel been hiding all my life. Winslow has given it all to us in Frannkie the Machine, you won't put your Ipod down and you might not even loose some sleep until you've finished.
Consider yourself dully warned.
ENJOY!!! PS You owe it to yourself to get The power of the Dog, after you finish this one!
I just found Winslow and can't believe I have never heard of him before now. His writing is up to par or better than Fynn, Crais, Lee, Connelly ext. The Power of the Dog had my attention from the first minute and kept it until the last words of the pro log. I loved it and will listen to the remaining two books he has here, one being Dawn Patrol which is down loading now.
Winslow has a gift for being able to describe a brutal killing while adding the best of dry humor which he does superbly. The characters are complex, perfectly developed through the balance of the book but easily followed and I felt like I was in Calif. and Central America by the time it was finished, all the while you are experiencing a killing spree during the process.
I hope you enjoy this fast paced (A huge understatement) thriller while being absolutely abhorred with our Governments actions during this time period and being totally entertained during the journey that Winslow has so masterfully written.
Buy this one, you will enjoy it!!!
PS Franky the Machine is just as great as this one is!
