    David Hall, an American nuclear engineer, arrives in Israel on a mission of truth. Believing that the defenders of Masada killed themselves to protect a great secret, Hall plans to explore the heavily guarded site and discover the real reasons behind the dramatic end of the Roman siege. Hall is shadowed by an Israeli archaeologist, Judith Ressner, a reserved professor with an agenda of her own. There is more than history hidden within the mountain, and Hall soon finds himself the target of ferocious Israeli security forces.

    Story

    I have enjoyed everyone of P. T. Deutermann's books available on audio and have really enjoyed every one. I was so excited to see he had a new book out, but he phoned this one in. No, that's unfair. You will love this book if you're an archeologist. I, however, am a fan of good, fast paced mystery/thriller/espionage. And, in my opinion, this isn't it.

    A romance in the jungle - Grant Sullivan, tough, masculine and handsome, is a retired military expert entrusted with a mission in the Costa Rican jungle - to find hostage and socialite Jane Hamilton Greer. When Grant rescues her in a rather cavalier and physical fashion, no love is lost between them. But gradually, their mutual attraction and passion becomes apparent and the jungle smolders in more ways than one.

    Story

    Linda Howard has written a couple of my favorite books, but I think she's gone the way of James Patterson - putting her name on books written by novice authors. Either that, or it's a very early book of hers recently released on audio. That would be my mistake. At any rate, don't bother if you're looking for anything more than sexual fluff.

    Billy Crystal is 65, and he's not happy about it. With his trademark wit and heart, he outlines the absurdities and challenges that come with growing old, from insomnia to memory loss to leaving dinners with half your meal on your shirt. In humorous chapters like ""Buying the Plot"" and ""Nodding Off,"" Crystal not only catalogues his physical gripes, but offers a road map to his 77 million fellow baby boomers who are arriving at this milestone age with him. He also looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from entertaining his relatives as a kid in Long Beach, Long Island, and his years doing stand-up in the Village, up through his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, When Harry Met Sally, and his long run as host of the Academy Awards. Listeners get a front-row seat to his one-day career with the New York Yankees (he was the first player to ever ""test positive for Maalox""), his love affair with Sophia Loren, and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. He lends a light touch to more serious topics like religion (""the aging friends I know have turned to the Holy Trinity: Advil, bourbon, and Prozac""); grandparenting; and, of course, dentistry. As wise and poignant as they are funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived.

    He is one of the funniest people on the earth today. I was completely charmed by how he is
    still so impressed by other greats in his field and others. He tells one great story after another, chronicling his life. Highly recommend.

    Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I'd never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He'd been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He'd been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone's name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

    Got a little impatient with some meandering, but Grafton has put out another good mystery - not a great one, but definitely a good one.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"

    William Kent Krueger is a New York Times best-selling author whose popular Cork O’Connor mysteries display an "intimate knowledge of Minnesota’s northern reaches and respect for Native American life" (Publishers Weekly). In Tamarack County, former sheriff Cork O'Connor investigates the disappearance of a retired judge’s wife - and discovers the bloody aftermath of a 20-year-old crime.

    It's helpful to follow this series in order, as you age & develop with the characters. Wonderful geographic descriptions combined with education on the Ojibwe culture and characters you really care about accompanied by a good mystery in every one.

    A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

    Could not get excited about this story or the characters. After experiencing so many really great legal thrillers by the likes of Scott Turow, John Lescroat; even David Rosenfelt, this was such a poor imitation.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold ""human error"" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Not usually a big fan of science fiction, but something made me try this book. Boy am I glad I did. Even though I couldn't understand all the scientific & mathematical calculations Mark Watney had to do to keep himself alive, I never bored of the story. It's well written and hilarious with great characters. HIGHLY recommend this book. Bravo, Mr. Weir!

    John Hart creates a literary thriller that is as suspenseful as it is poignant, a riveting murder mystery layered beneath the southern drawl of a humble North Carolina lawyer. When Work Pickens finds his father murdered, the investigation pushes a repressed family history to the surface and he sees his own carefully constructed facade begin to crack.

    Scott says: "Better than a Grisham novel"
    "Hated it as I was unable to stop listening."

    Johh Hart is a very good writer who makes you feel the pain of his very-definitely-flawed protagonist. The story catches you from the first chapter, even though it hurts and you hang on til the end. First book of his that I've listened to/read, but I will definitely try another.

    Good follow up to the first book in this series set in the California Horse culture. Good suspense and a little romance. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys Linda Howard, Karen Robards, or Suzanne Brockmann.
