    Nick Stone, ex-SAS, now with British Intelligence, discovers the seemingly sensless murders of fellow SAS soldier Kev Brown and his family in Washington, D.C. Only Kelly, seven-years-old, has survived, and immediately the two of them are on the run from unidentified pursuers.

    Story

    I buy audio books for in the car. Currently I am listening to another Andy McNab book which I am enjoying. However, the narrator of Remote Control , Ric Jerrom, has made it impossible for me to listen to this book. I tried but in the opening chapters ( I did not get any farther) there is very uneven volume. The narrators tone fluctuates considerably from whispers to normal tones and I was turning the volume up and down constantly. This does not work for listening in the car and I think it would be distracting at anytime.
    I do not know if it is a production problem or a narrator problem but I will think twice before purchasing anything else with this narrator.

    Romance is in the air in the charming seaside village of Molena Point, California. Everyone is excited about the upcoming wedding of its chief of police to the lovely Charlie Getz, even cool feline detective Joe Grey. But the festivities are interrupted when two uninvited guests try to blow up the church. Then one of the bride’s good friends, building contractor Ryan Flannery, lands in a heap of trouble when her philandering husband is found dead.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Shirley Rousseau Murphy and/or Susan Boyce?

    I have read many stories in this series but this is the first one I have gotten in the audible version. I enjoy the books and characters and had hoped to share these stories with my daughter on a car trip. She has enjoyed other cat series so I thought this would be a good way to introduce these books. Susan has a nice voice but it does not work for these books. At times , especially the first chapter has a "sing song" quality and then at a couple of other points her voice sounds robotic. Some of the characters are ok and others not as well done. The narrative parts do not work well for me. I am finishing it and have managed to get beyond the narration but we could only listen to one chapter on our trip before turning it off. I love audible and listen to several books a month but I will stick with reading these unless there is a different narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the whole series. The characters work for me and I visit the California coast often so find the setting very enjoyable.

    Story
    (632)

    It is 1910, the age of flying machines is still in its infancy, and newspaper publisher Preston Whiteway is offering $50,000 for the first daring aviator to cross America in less than 50 days. He is even sponsoring one of the prime candidates - an intrepid woman named Josephine Frost - and that's where Bell, chief investigator for the Van Dorn Detective Agency, comes in.

    Story

    I enjoyed the story and actually have liked this whole series.In this case the topic of cross country flight and the development of the airplane were intriguing... It made me want to learn a lot more about this era of history to sort out fact from fiction. It seems we all know about the Wright brothers but that was about the end of my knowledge so I consider it a win win when the story is entertaining and I am motivated to do some research about history!
