    Catherine Ling was abandoned on the streets of Hong Kong at age four. Schooled in the art of survival, she traded in the only commodity she had: information. As a teenager, she came under the tutelage of a mysterious man known only as Hu Chang - a skilled assassin and master poisoner. As a young woman, she was recruited by the CIA and now she is known as one of their most effective operatives.

    Story

    I had a very difficult time listening to this book. I did so only because I had to be in the car for an extended period of time. This was my first (and last) book by Iris Johansen. The storyline and characters are not believable and the dialogue is most often juvenile. The narrator did a good job with what she was given to work with and I would be interested in hearing her work with a different author.

    No names. No Feds. No trace evidence. That's how Jonathan Grave operates. As a freelance specialist in covert rescues, he has to work outside the law to get things done - especially in highly sensitive hostage situations. But when an Indiana college student is abducted, and Jonathan's meticulous plan explodes into a deadly shooting spree, the local authorities are out for blood - and they're not alone. Someone wants to control a devastating secret...Someone rich and powerful.

    Story

    The characters are not believable and the narration is so slow that the listener's attention may wander. The main character is supposed to be a hardened veteran of both war and covert operations yet he acts like a social worker. His character is not believable. Don't trust the Audible description for this book.

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    I have read 6 of the Reacher novels and this is, in my opinion, the best. It lays the ground work for the book that follow. I always wondered how Jack moved on from the Army to his nomadic way of life. Now I know.
