    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "The Lion's Game was the best"
    Overall

    I became a fan of John Corey and Kate Mayfield after the Lion's Game, eager to get more I got this despite the reviews about the ending. Sorry to say they were right, the ending was completely a "cop" out. Wasn't impressed at all. Wildfire is a little bit better but not much. Take my advice at leave it at the Lion's game. Scott Brick who is one of my favorites really does up the "New York" accent in these two, but he's still great. Check him out in Cold Blood, whoa that gave me chills.

    Neanderthals have developed a radically different civilization on a parallel Earth. A Neanderthal physicist, Ponter Boddit, accidentally passes from his universe into a Canadian underground research facility. Fortunately, a team of human scientists, including expert paleo-anthropologist Mary Vaughan, promptly identifies and warmly receives Ponter. Solving the language problem and much else is a mini-computer, called a Companion, implanted in the brain of every Neanderthal. But it can't help his fellow scientist back in his world, Adikor Huld, when the authorities charge Adikor with his murder.

    Scott says: "Scicen Fiction Can Be Literature"

    Overall

    Completely interesting and fascinating!

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Wanted so bad to like it"
    Overall

    My God, this book is so boring! I love spy novels, but this is not one of them. Stick to John Corey and Jason Bourne. Scott Brick who is one of my favorite readers does a great job (as usual) but I'm just not interested at all in these characters. There is NO ACTION or suspense whatsoever. It's a boring political novel with no decernable heroes or villains, in other words there is nothing to sink your teeth in to. Save your credits.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    "This Book is AWESOME!"
    Overall

    Got this book because of all the positive reviews and I can say they were right. Intriguing book, started off a little slow but then it's non stop action. The bad guy in this book is the best bad guy I've seen in years, he has got to be my favorite. LOVED HIM, he's intelligent, vicious, and totally justified.

    Don Quixote, the world's first novel and by far the best-known book in Spanish literature, was originally intended by Cervantes as a satire on traditional popular ballads, yet he also parodied the romances of chivalry. By happy coincidence he produced one of the most entertaining adventure stories of all time and, in Don Quixote and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, two of the greatest characters in fiction.

    James says: "Excellent"
    "Not for casual listening"
    Overall

    I listen to my books in the car, at work,in the gym, etc, times when i have to divide my attention, which made this book extremely difficult to follow. Its read in a fast paced (snide sounding)English accent that uses a lot of sophisticated words and concepts. I wonder why they didn't get someone with a Spanish accent who can better add to the cultural effect of the region in which the story is set. I'm sure its a wonderful book but to me its like Shakespeare on speed.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is universally regarded as one of literature's finest achievements, as the great Russian novelist explores the inner workings of a troubled intellectual. Raskolnikov, a nihilistic young man in the midst of a spiritual crisis, makes the fateful decision to murder a cruel pawnbroker, justifying his actions by relying on science and reason, and creating his own morality system. Dehumanized yet sympathetic, exhausted yet hopeful, Raskolnikov represents the best and worst elements of modern intellectualism. The aftermath of his crime and Petrovich's murder investigation result in an utterly compelling, truly unforgettable cat-and-mouse game. This stunning dramatization of Dostoevsky's magnum opus brings the slums of St. Petersburg and the demons of Raskolnikov's tortured mind vividly to life.

    Greg says: "Wonderful Book"
    "Good, but gloomy, be prepared to be depressed"
    Overall

    Well first off the Narrator does an excellent job great character impressions. The book is very good but it's very gloomy and dark. It's also hard to keep track of all the Russian names so what I did is as soon as I heard a new name I gave it an English equivalent name for example one character's name is Marmeladoff so I remembered him as Marmalade.
