    An assassin takes aim at a Presidential candidate during a primary stump speech. The instant he pulls the trigger, the outcome of the election is irrevocably changed. But Democrat Teddy Lodge, an upcoming media sweetheart, isn't killed. His wife is. As a result, Lodge emerges as the man to beat and the greatest threat to the incumbent President, Morgan Taylor.

    A refreshing and exciting thriller - unlike many of the newer political thrillers, I found this one to be an "edge of the seat" read - can't wait to start the next one by Grossman! A great listen!

    In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

    Would you try another book from James Rollins and/or Christian Baskous?

    Love the Sigma Force Books, however this story seemed really farfetched and the poor narration was not on the par with the story. Will read more Rollins - won't listen to Baskous again.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Baskous?

    Peter Fernandez or Scott Brick


    Any additional comments?

    When a new book in a series I like is released, I go back and listen to the most recent one to "gear up" for the new one. This narrarator was not able to keep me focused on the story,and I found my attention wandering. Disappointing!
