    Meet Kolt Raynor. A Delta Force operator and one-time American hero, he is still trying to make sense of his life - and duty - after a secret mission gone bad. Three years ago, in the mountains of Pakistan, Raynor made a split-second decision to disobey orders - one that got some of his teammates killed and the rest captured. Now he’s been given a second chance to do right by his country, his men, and himself. But Raynor’s shot at redemption comes at a price.

    Pamela Dale Foster says: "Loved the novel"

    Where does Black Site rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best listens ever. The pace is excellent, the characters believable and the prose is tight and evocative.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Most certainly. The protagonist is deeply flawed, yet heroic. I constantly had my earphone in, listening because I just couldn't stop playback.


    What about Ari Fliakos’s performance did you like?

    Spot on and just the right amount of emotion to reveal the characters and their personalities.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it made me reflect on the individuals who do the kind of work men like Raynor (and Fury, in real life) do for our Republic. These men do things every day that seem impossibly difficult and dangerous. And at huge personal sacrifice.


    Any additional comments?

    Fury showed his chops for good narrative in Kill Bin Laden. It's great to see him apply this gift in his first of what I hope is a long line of novels. Keep up the good work and BEAT NAVY!

  • Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960–2010

    In Coming Apart, Charles Murray explores the formation of American classes that are different in kind from anything we have ever known, focusing on whites as a way of driving home the fact that the trends he describes do not break along lines of race or ethnicity.

    Brent says: "great insights to today's culture wars"
    "A Must Read for Every American Citizen"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    May not leave you feeling upbeat about our nation, but essential to read and understand for anyone who cares about the future of the republic and how to prepare for the future. It will affect how you educate yourself and plan for your children, where you live and your career plans. Stellar research and carefully-reasoned conclusions. 1963 began what is likely the end of America as we think it is, what we wish it to be, as well as any quaint notions we may harbor about our society.


    What other book might you compare Coming Apart to and why?

    Mark Steyn's End of America comes to mind, as does Huxley's Brave New World


    Have you listened to any of Traber Burns’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First one. Excellent narration.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The prologue on the world of 1963 and how different our society is today.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't stress too strongly that everyone should read and understand this book. It may require the fortitude of a college course, but the rewards are bountiful.
