    Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home. Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too - and he's certain he's on the right trail. Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in.

    Following Haller trying to work towards victory and the facts as they surfaced was more than fun, it was mentally engaging. I found myself formulating the questions I wanted Haller to ask. He didn't always ask them. It really ticked me off, but I imagine that's this is the way it really is. This book kept me captured and wanting to to read more to get the next revelation. If you like good stories, good people, and how it all works you'll enjoy this.

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." So begins this classic, one of the most beloved novels of all time. Charles Dickens brings the French Revolution to life through such vivid characters as Charles Darnay, the Old Doctor, Sydney Carton and Lucy Manette. The action peaks with the storming of the Bastille, the dreaded symbol of government authority. And the blade of La Guillotine falls again...

    Docedward says: "Absolute literature...and a page turner at that!"

    I've read the book several times, but listening to this narration communicated the horror and blodthirsty nature of the revolution. The characters are all very real, and you care about them as you may not have cared about any others. Bravo!

    Four thousand years ago, a stranger's death at the Old Temple of Ratharryn, and his ominous "gift" of gold, precipitates the building of what for centuries to come will be known as one of mankind's most singular and remarkable achievements.

    It all moves at a level you'd expect for prehistorical people. Fight, build, fight some more, survival, build again, all without a lot of complexity. The characters are single minded and there are no great surprises.
