    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    I listen in the car while driving back and forth to work. Several times my wife was wondering why I waited in the car. Great non-stop action. "I want to be like Jack". Kick ass and take names later.

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    I look forward to every Reacher book. This book delivered in the way Reacher does things best, clear and decisive. This book had me all the way to the end, which I thought was a little weak. I wanted Reacher to make heads roll. Dick Hill once again delivers a great performance.

    When Nelson Demille writes a story, he takes the time to develop his characters so so very well. His quick wit and snappy one liners have always interested me. Scott Brick blows life into what seems like real people and has always done a great job with Nelson's books. I am not sure why I had not ever read this book before nor seen the movie. Perhaps now I will seek out the movie?

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    The stunning new thriller - the 20th Doc Ford novel - from New York Times best-selling author Randy Wayne White. Both Doc Ford and his friend Tomlinson have buried secrets. Now one of those secrets is about to come alive - with a vengeance. While trying to solve one of Florida's most profound secrets, Doc Ford is the target of a murder attempt by someone who wants to make it look like an accident. Or is the target actually Tomlinson?

    Doc Ford is just good stuff to listen too. Marian seems to be developing a very interesting new friend that will provide Randy some new material to explore.
    I had the chance to go to a book signing and hear Randy talk, he is well worth the time.

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Charles says: "Eh."

    I have read all of Grisham’s stuff. I tend to like his non-lawyer stuff and the “Racketeer” once again delivers. After a slow start the book became a non-stop read for me. As always, the characters are well developed. John, you keep writing and I will keep reading. Inmates seem to have way to much time on their hand to be able to think up things like this.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    This biography takes the reader through the life of a very unique individual. Louis Zamperini is a hero in three different ways an athlete, inspiration for men and finally a man who can forgive others. Without one of these virtues the other two don’t exist. We all should have such strong resolve in our lives. Laura you once again did a wonderful job of telling a great story.

    Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet and leaves the flight crew either crippled or dead. This is the story of how three survivors must achieve the impossible and land the plane. Master storyteller Nelson DeMille and veteran pilot Thomas Block collaborated on Mayday, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller of all time. Also available abridged.

    Douglas says: "Great adventure! Hard to put down."

    Story

    DeMille's rewrite of a great book is even better with the newer setting. As always, DeMille’s wit and mastering of the written English language delivers a spellbinding listening experience. DeMille’s boyhood friend Thomas Block lends his knowledge and insight of flight to enhance the reading experience of this book by making the technical stuff unquestionable. The suspense of several sequences in this book had me riveted to the radio in my car (I listen via my Apple Nano). I can’t wait for his next book, I don’t know how I missed this book, I have read all of DeMille’s stuff.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    War is hell. Our young men are going through hell fighting a war that means nothing to our adversaries. The people who are fighting this war for the most part don’t even live in the country they are fighting in. I support our young people who brave their lives and fight against religious zealots.
