    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    My daughter talked me into listening to this book. She thought it was better than Harry Potter. Well to me it sure isn't Harry Potter. This just wasn't my cup of tea at all. Don't think I will see the movie and I know I won't order the second book. This book just did't fit to what I call entertainment or good writting. Took for ever to tell a very simple story. Suzanne Collins repeated herself a lot. She kept going over issues that I thought once said was enough. Just not for me.

    In Naked Prey, John Sandford puts Lucas Davenport through some changes. His old boss, Rose Marie Roux, has moved up to the state level and taken Lucas with her. In addition, Lucas is now married and a new father, both of which are fine with him: He doesn't mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay - and he's waiting for the bill. It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are of a black man and a white woman, and they're naked....

    Sandford just gets better. Each one of the Prey series is fantastic to me. I love they way they build on each other. Sandford doesn't leave a cliff hanger like the old serials did in the movies but his books sure lead you to wanting to read the next book in the series. Davenport or Mitch Rapp. Maybe they are equal in my mind. Both are dynamite character's. Enjoy.

    In life she was a high-profile model. In death she is the focus of a media firestorm that's demanding action from Lucas Davenport. One of his own men is a suspect in her murder. But when a series of bizarre, seemingly unrelated slayings rock the city, Davenport suspects a connection that runs deeper than anyone had imagined - one that leads to an ingenious killer more ruthless than anyone had feared....

    They just get better. Some of the other reviews had me worried. They said to many potential suspects to twisted. I started to not buy this book, I almost skipped over it. I'm sure glad I didn't. Yes there are a lot of suspects and yes it takes a lot of twist and turns but isn't that what a good book is to do? You'll get your money's worth with this one. Enjoy

    The company chairman lay on the cold ground of the woods, his eyes unseeing, his orange hunting jacket punctured by a rifle bullet at close range. Around him stood the four executives with whom he had been hunting, each with his or her own complicated agenda, each with a reason not to be sorrowful about the man's death. If he read it in a book, Lucas Davenport thought, it would seem like one of those classic murder mysteries, the kind where the detective gathers everyone together at the end and solves the case with a little speech.

    All of the previous books in the Lucas Davenport series have had twist and turns and this addition certainly has that as well. Sandford referrers to previous plot lines and incorporates characters from earlier book into Secret Prey with expert precision. Sandford's main character is a very complicated man but also he is a very simple man. Lucas seems to always dealing with moral and personal dilemmas while he is chasing the bad guys. It seems to me Lucas is putting some of his personal demons to rest in this book. Its a nice touch. The ending is different, very different indeed. Enjoy I sure did.

    John Sandford's acclaimed Prey novels featuring the brilliant Lucas Davenport have plunged millions of readers into the darkest recesses of the criminal mind. Now Lucas has met his match. His newest nemesis is more intelligent, more deadly, than any he has tracked before: a kidnapper, a violator, and a cruel, wanton killer who knows more about mind games than Lucas himself.

    When a mysterious note referencing a top-secret US operation is tossed over the wall of the embassy in Nicaragua, Nathan McBride and his old pal Harv are called out of retirement by CIA Director Rebecca Cantrell and sent to Central America. Cantrell wants the situation resolved quickly and knows that Nathan is the man to do it; after all, he has a history with the place. The jungle he and Harv are about to land in is the same one that Nathan barely escaped with his life decades before, an ordeal that left him physically and psychologically scarred.

    To me there is a great deal of similarities between Andrew Peterson and Lee Childs writing style. Each of their main characters are very similar. I found I like Peterson and his McBride character better. If you have not listened to Peterson and you like writers like Childs, Silva, and Coonts I think you will like Peterson. Give the McBride series a try I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Mitch Rapp and his protege, Mike Nash, may have met their match. The CIA has detected and intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third is feared to be on the loose. Led by a dangerous mastermind obsessed with becoming the leader of al-Qaeda, this determined and terrifying group is about to descend on America.

    How does Flynn do it? The Mitch Rapp series just keeps getting better. More mature, more cynical, more human all of Flynn's characters from Mitch Rapp to Kennedy and right on down the line. If I had a problem and I don't is the way Flynn portrays the wives of his main characters. Yes I can believe it is very hard on the wives of men who work in the clandestine world not knowing where or just what their husbands are doing. How much danger they are in or not in. But that is true of any relationship between couples, Policemen, firemen, miners, truck drives, many men have dangerous jobs that are important. No they don't go around having gun battles on a daily basis but their jobs are dangerous. Fantastic series do yourself a favor and read the complete series starting with the 1st book. Flynn may not be one of the all time writer of classic literature but he sure fits my taste. I would much rather have a great Double Cheeseburger with fries and a chocolate shake than a steak dinner. Flynn's Rapp series is the great American Double Cheeseburger to me. I want MORE not just a second helping I want a100 helpings of Mitch Rapp and company.

    The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.

    This is insane. I feel like I am addicted to this series. I am completely sleep deprived because of Vince Flynn. My wife is looking for a series to read. I told her the Mitch Rapp character is better than Jason Bourne. She said well I will read one and see. Boy is she in for a surprise. She doesn't believe me. Once she starts this series I won't see her again till this fall.

    The action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches a creative and daring operation that leaves a radioactive tomb in the middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States and demands retribution.

    It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

    This is crazy. I almost wish my brother hadn't put me onto Vince Flynn. I am going through this complete series as fast as I can. I catch my self listening to this series when I should be doing other things. I am buying this series two and three books at a time. My one book a month subscription isn't working very well on this series. I just can't wait till next month for another credit. I am buy three extra credits a month so I can get this series completed. I simply love this series. Mitch Rapp has become my favorite "good guy". Much more down to earth and realistic than Jack Reacher or Cotton Malone. I wish I had the money to buy the movie rights for this complete series. If ever there was a series that would be a fantastic movie series this is it. Every bit as good or better than the Jason Bourne.

    CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

    I read some of the other reviews before I bought this book. I have listened to several of the Mitch Rapp series and enjoyed everyone of them. Some of the complaints that other reviewers had were in regards to the narrator. I saw nothing wrong with Nick Sullivan's narration as a matter of fact I think he is one of the better readers that I have heard.
    I grew up in the era of weekly serials and I loved them. I personally like the way Mr. Flynn builds for a series. The Third Option is fine entertainment and worth the price. Enjoy, I certainly did.
