    With vividly realized characters and a breathtaking pace, Last Man Standing is another spellbinding title from David Baldacci, best selling author of Wish You Well. When the FBI Hostage Rescue Team is ambushed, it is up to sole survivor Web London to find the killer.

    Chad says: "Great book"
    "His Best offering"
    Overall

    Definately THIS authors Best offering to date. Once I started it, I did not stop for some 16 or so hours. You don't run across books this good this often. Baldacci is good, but never this good. The charachters are put together, and intertwined so well, you'd think you had a James Clavell Novel in your hands. It is definately a keeper.

    In October 1943, a U.S. destroyer sailed out of Philadelphia and supposedly vanished, the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. The story was considered a hoax - but now Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon colleagues aren't so sure. There is talk of a new weapon soon to be auctioned, something very dangerous to America's interests, and the rumors link it to the great inventor Nikola Tesla, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the experiment? Are his notes in the hands of enemies?

    "Great read, continuity as usual, was lacking."

    Story
    Where does Mirage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    GREAT read, I loved it.I do have a issue with ONE thing, that has been an issue with all of cussler's books. Continuity, Maurice, has become "MORRIS". Same guy, same attitude, different name, and slightly different voice, and there were other issues of lack of continuity. WHY does Cussler insist on botching continuity so badly in so many of his "Series". But, the book was never the less excellent, and at the top of the Oregon files books. The only Cussler series I read any more. I would highly recommend it to anyone, even if they've never heard of Cussler or the Oregon Files. A VERY tiny basis in fact, surrounded by a great non stop action Yarn.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mirage?

    Finding "Dullah's yacht upside down, but floating to a degree, and The crew of the yacht (most of them) and Linda Ross safe in a water tight bilge.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick MAKES the story. Were it not for him, I would NOT have purchased the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    NO

    BUY IT.

    Where does The Lonely Silver Rain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the top 3 books he has written. Though the performance byPetkoff is Miserable, and DOES take away from the overall audiobook, I'm blind, and have NO CHOICE but to put up with him, IF I want the story. The narrator that was used on the abridged 4 tape audio books, was SO MUCH better, He made the stories WORK! I have ALL of those all 21 Travis Mcghees that is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lonely Silver Rain?

    When Travis McGhee meets his daughter, and finds out her mother was "Puss", the Jolly Random Redhead.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Lose that LOUSY NARRATOR, Robert Pletkoff! I have Heard worse, but, I cannot remember where.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Wanted" by a Cartel, usually means DEAD! Live, and you meet the teenage daughter, you NEVER knew you had!


    Any additional comments?

    Above all else, PLEASE use another narrator. Try Scott Brick. Another GREAT book by John D. Macdonald, and, it's his LAST! John D. MacDonald is a Great Loss to the world, and I'm sure his loss to those that loved him most, Is SO much greater than his great loss that those of us such as Myself, who loved him through his books feel.

    Christopher Snow is the best-known resident of 12,000-strong Moonlight Bay, California. This is because 28-year-old Chris has xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), a light-sensitivity so severe that he cannot leave his house in daylight, cannot enter a normally-lit room, cannot sit at a computer.

    Stanley says: "Great Book"
    "KEEP THE LIGHTS ON!"
    Overall

    THIS is Koontz at his best. Starts a bit slow, but, OH BOY, does it pick up. It takes you places you never thought you'd go... Twists and turns in the plot galore, KEEP THE LIGHTS ON AS YOU LISTEN TO THIS, I'm blind, NO PROBLEM! ;-)
    DO NOT forget to get the follow up book to this, after you listen to this, called "Sieze the Night". IT's as good or better than "Fear Nothing". BUT, read them in order!
