    Detective John Corey now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family.

    Patricia says: "Totally predictable"
    "You better really like the narrator"
    Overall

    I have listened to a few of DeMille's books and like those this story is pretty good. It moves a little slowly and I found myself becoming very impatient at times.

    What surprised me most was Scott Brick's narration. I usually like him and have gotten books simply because he's the narrator. However in this case he sounds almost bored and a little to melodramatic. So I suggest that you better be as much of a Scott Brick fan as a DeMille fan to really enjoy this.

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Christopher McDougall
    • Narrated By Fred Sanders
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"
    "The spirit of running"
    Overall

    Since reading this book I have taken off my watch, stopped training for specific events and forgotten about PR times. I have gotten back to running for its own sake and I have enjoyed every moment of it. I am enjoying running in a way that I haven't for years.

    This book brought me back to what it was like to run as a child, to run for a shear joy of it. It captures the spirit of running better than any other book I have every read.

    The changes I have made since reading this book I believe have reconnected me in a deeper and more meaningful way to what it means to be human. I am extremely grateful for that.

    And its just a great story, perfect pace and great characters.
