    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    Male voice is ok, at least it doesn't detract from the book. Female voice is not good, although I have listened to the before I still do not like the two voice format especially when she is so poor. Her voice does detract from the book. The book is enjoyable and I don't usually like this author. All in all not bad but not great.

    At the age of 22, Jennifer Worth left her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in postwar London’s East End slums. The colorful characters she met while delivering babies all over London - from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lived to the woman with 24 children who couldn't speak English to the prostitutes and dockers of the city’s seedier side - illuminate a fascinating time in history.

    Although the book was interesting I really struggled with the narration. The accents were so strong I simply missed parts of the book. I almost asked for a refund but struggled through it. For me it would be way better in print, audible version was hard work. Disappointing.

    Story

    Lou diamond Phillips is terrible at almost every accent and this book is full of different accents. Very distracting. However, the little audible gasps between many phrases where really annoying. To his credit I don't think even the best narrator could have saved this trite book. What a sad end to a sometimes brilliant series. At least it didn't make me sad to say adios to jack Ryan, both of them.

    Story

    Billed as a mystery/thriller the romance aspect was incredible tedious. The mystery aspect was really weak. The narrator had an irritating edgy voice that was grating to listen too. I don't think even a brilliant narrator could save this book. I'll skip this series, thank you. The story and narrator were a good match, below average.

    The Delta Solution is an action-packed novel pitting Navy SEAL Mack Bedford against the Somali pirates operating off the southerly reaches of the lawless East African republic on the Indian Ocean. For the past three years, these heavily armed tribal brigands have been capturing and holding for ransom massive cargo ships, and violently demanding millions of dollars for their return. Hero Mack Bedford is deployed to obliterate them in the middle of the Indian Ocean, at all costs, once and for all.

    Story

    I agree with other reviewers in their disappointment with this book. I have read just about every seal book available and am usually riveted. The author seemed to need to tell me how impressed I should be, again and again. There was very little story or action. Lots of unnecessary verbiage and honking of seal horns. Our special forces are so exceptional that you don't need to tell me how exceptional they are. Just tell the story, the awe is in understating their feats. Thanks to our military at every level. You can all spend your credit on most anything, it would be better than this thing. 3 stars because of the tiny insight into piracy.

    When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club - a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following.

    On the 78th floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower, no alarms sounded, and no one knew what had just happened at 8:46 a.m. that morning, September 11, 2001. Blind since birth, Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and his guide dog, Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team....

    Story

    This book focuses on blindness and the author's life being blind from infancy. Although it was interesting from that point of view it focuses very little on his dog. Really disappointing as a dog lover. I found it to be more of an "all about me and what I have done" kind of book. Was really glad when it ended.

    I wish audible would make it more clear when a book is a religious vehicle. This is the third "mystery/thriller" category book I have bought in a row that is no more than a sermon in disguise. Soooo disappointed. Please add a religious category so I can avoid it as I do other categories that are not of interest to me. I check synopsis and read reviews but keep getting fooled. I am now going to start checking authors before I buy as they tend to run true to form. I am sure others would appreciate a religious category during audible specials.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    I enjoyed this story but certainly agree with others that the narrator was not a good fit. He isn't a terrible narrator he just couldn't even begin to fill the shoes of previous narrators. The book should be a solid 5 stars. Too bad..

    I felt every detail of this book was vital in portraying the incredible strength and insight of this young lady. Although I usually find authors reading their books no the best her narration added so much to the story, at time adding emotion only she cold convey. Good luck to you Jaycee and thank you for having the courage to share this very personal memoir.

    For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy until after the election of Lyndon Johnson, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and friend. Looking back, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time, offering a tender and tragic portrayal of how a Secret Service agent who started life in an orphanage became the most trusted man in the life of the First Lady who captivated first the nation and then the world.

    I was in the 9th grade when JFK was assassinated and watched every second of tv coverage. Still the Jackie we saw was one-dimensional. Thanks to this book I now have a much greater appreciation of this amazing woman. Talented, smart, funny, and strong. Thanks Mr. Hill for giving me a greater appreciation of who she was.
