    Roger Ferris is one of the CIA's soldiers in the war on terrorism. He has come out of Iraq with a shattered leg and an intense mission: to penetrate the network of a master terrorist known only as "Suleiman". Ferris' plan for getting inside Suleiman's tent is inspired by a masterpiece of British intelligence during World War II: he prepares a body of lies, literally the corpse of an imaginary CIA officer who appears to have accomplished the impossible by recruiting an agent within the enemy's ranks.

    Story

    I have seen the movie so i had a had an advantage...Good story line once it got going, and i thought the arrogance of the CIA was well portrayed throughout the book, and indeed at times adding to the suspense. I like the author, and i found the narrator to be OK (as opposed to all the other critics that are giving him a pasting). Worth a listen to.

    It's one of the most dangerous and volatile countries in the world: Yemen. A Middle Eastern hotbed of corruption and insurgency and the perfect training ground for Islamic terrorists. When FBI agents John Corey and Kate Mayfield are assigned to overseas posts in Sana'a, Yemen's capital city, they are tasked with hunting down a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative.

    Martin says: "My heart sank when I saw who the narrator was ..."
    "John Corey makes me laugh - no reallly!"

    I listen to the book whilst travelling to and from work, and at times you can't help but smirk and laugh at some of john's internal musings. I have followed DeMille for many years and he has yet to write a dud in my opinion.

    Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional "cleaner". Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies. But his latest assignment will change everything. The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up, and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silent, he knows he's in over his head. With only a handful of clues, Quinn struggles to find out why someone wants him dead.

    This was a great listen in general, with some intersting twists along the way, worth a listen to.

    Edith Hahn was an outspoken young woman in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her into a ghetto and then into a slave labor camp. When she returned home months later, she knew she would become a hunted woman, so she went underground.

    Story

    A young woman who refused to be beaten by the Nazi regime and all that it stood for. An amazing story narrated in such a wonderful way that i found myself cheering for Edith and yet at the same time full of sorrow that anyone should have to go through what she and many other's had to just to survive.
