    Before The Company, Robert Littell made a name for himself with The Defection of A.J. Lewinter. Hailed as "a perfect little gem" and a "concise, smart, and funny [novel that] turns Cold War spy cliches on their head," A.J. Lewinter tells the story of an insignificant American scientist whose defection to the Soviet Union becomes a terrifying political chess match of deceit and treachery. Not to be missed!

    Mike says: "The Defection of A.J. Lewinter"
    "Slow moving - lacking substance"
    Overall

    This was perhaps one of the bottom 5 books that I have downloaded. Save your money. The characters are flat, the plot predictable. I had to force myself to finish it and would not recommend spending your time listening. I continue to like Scott Brick as a narrator but even he can't make up for a weak plot.

    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The author seemed to be getting paid by the word. Good story but could have been told in mush less time.

    Fifty-nine days. That's how long Rennell Price has to live after spending 15 years on death row for the horrifying sexual assault and murder of a girl whose body was found floating in San Francisco Bay. But attorney Terri Paget has dedicated her life to fighting for people like Rennell Price. This time, Terri has a client she believes may actually be innocent, which means that an unpunished killer may still be free.

    N. Richardson says: "The Nature of"
    "Too long, too little plot"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed many of Patterson's novels but this one lacked plot. It was more of the author's view on capital punishment and less of a mystery. I happen to agree with his views but the story dragged. If you must listen to it, go for the abridged version. I stopped listening 3/4 of the way through and found another book with more interest. I rarely do that.
