    Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political-the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale-the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions.

    Rick says: "Classic W.E.B. and Brick's narration wins big."

    I was really surprised how much I did NOT like this Novel. Lots of characters- lots of talking- lots of tie-ins with historical facts... very few of which led to anything. After about 4 hours you are really wondering if there is any plot to this at all. When it finally looks like you figured out what the plot is... that plot line is ruled out and are again left to wonder why am I listening to this. I finished it just to see why the book was written.In the last hour or so it somewhat comes together but not worth the time or a credit. In fact, I wouldn't recommend listening to it even if it were free. Blah Blah Blah... oh, I zoned out. Let me rewind to see what I missed. No, didn't miss anything.

    Jane Sagan: Soldier. Killer. Lover. Dreamer. In John Scalzi's best-selling Old Man's War series of science-fiction novels, we see this warrior woman as the other characters see her - silent and strong, from the outside. But now The Sagan Diary shows us Sagan from another point of view: her own, as she prepares to leave military life and join her new husband and adopted daughter on a colony world.

    Like listening to someone read thier own diary. I guess that it why it is called "The Sagan Diary". I just didn't expect that to be so... literal. Slow, monotone and very repetative. Not at all what i was expecting. Hopefully he goes back to writing something that merits more his ability to entertain.

    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    Noreen says: "Another great story"
    "not the greatest"
    Overall

    Really surprised by the writing. A lot of comments talk about the narration. It's not the narration it's the story telling. It starts off interesting for the first couple chapters and then blah through the WHOLE middle. Sorry, not up to par.

    In the Arctic, two American intelligence operatives are kidnapped while investigating Russian submarines - a constant, covert presence beneath the ice caps. In Washington, ex-Marine Charlie Dean and his team at Desk Three trace the abduction back to the Russian mafiya, who have their sights set on the massive reserves of oil that lie thousands of feet below the ocean's floor.

    Overall

    I found this book hard to get into. It has a lot of action but little to make you connect with the characters. That being the case, I found myself not caring what happened to the characters - or the plot.
