    Red centers around the heroic rescue attempts of Thomas Hunter to save both worlds. With the devastating realization that he has unleashed death into both worlds, he now must figure out how to undo this evil all while trying to save his true love. From meeting with world powers in one world to leading a small band of mighty warriors in the great forests of the other world, Thomas is determined to change the history of two realities, or sacrifice all in trying.

    Overall

    This book suffers the fate of most middle books of a trilogy. It basically slogs along explaining the first book in more detail and setting up the last book of the set. Don't get me wrong - it is a good book. It does have subplots to add interest and there is some progress towards the end game but it is slow getting there. All of that said, I am looking forward to "White" and will listen to it shortly. The reader is fantastic!!!

    Joseph Finder introduced Nick Heller, a “private spy” who finds out things powerful people want to keep hidden, to widespread acclaim from the critics and wild enthusiasm from the readers, in the New York Times best-selling novel Vanished. Now, in Buried Secrets, Nick Heller returns, finding himself in the middle of a life-or-death situation that’s both high-profile and intensely personal.

    Where does Buried Secrets rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a classic "page turner" action book. Joseph Finder does an excellent job of the ebb and flow of the book with high points of tension and then relaxation. The plot is believable and the characters are spot on!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick Heller - of course!!!


    Which character – as performed by Holter Graham – was your favorite?

    He does a great job with all characters except the nephew of Nick. His breaking of the voice is over done. I know why he does it but - still too much


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

    Final few chapters - I could not stop listening until finished


    Any additional comments?

    Nick Heller is the next Jack Reacher

    This book has "unabridged" as its description and it is a dramatic rendition. While it is ok, it certainly does not qualify as unabridged in the classic sense.

    Stella Hardesty dispatched her abusive husband with a wrench shortly before her 50th birthday. A few years later, she’s so busy delivering home-style justice on her days off, helping other women deal with their own abusive husbands and boyfriends, that she barely has time to run her sewing shop in her rural Missouri hometown. Some men need more convincing than others, but it’s usually nothing a little light bondage or old-fashioned whuppin' can’t fix.

    Ron Chernow, whom the New York Times called "as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we've seen in decades", now brings to startling life the man who was arguably the most important figure in American history, who never attained the presidency, but who had a far more lasting impact than many who did.

    Robert says: "Captivating & Fluid Bio Unique American immigrant"
    "Nothing has changed"
    Overall

    This is a great book about the political and social environment surrounding our early republic. If you changed the names and left out the duals, you could be talking about today's politics - intrigue, backstabbing, personal attacks. This book really fills in the gaps between the revolution and the War of 1812. The narration is supurb.

    A sinister masterpiece, Our Mutual Friend was Dickens' last completed novel. It is perhaps his ultimate vision of a dark, macabre London and the corrupting power of money.

    Erez says: "Worth six stars"
    "Vintage Dickens"
    Overall

    Our Mutual Friend is vintage Dickens with subplots, intense character development, and wordy. While the main plot lines converge at the end of the book, there are some plot lines that ramble on without a real tie in to the main lines. Having read or listened to all of the novels, I certainly was not surprised by the pace. I would strongly recommend this Audible version because the reader is supurb.

    Fantastic series!! This book is the best of the three and wraps up all loose ends. I really enjoyed the reader. I strongly encourage people to listen to them in order or it will not make any sense at all.

    "Alexandra Scott, Alaskan Wilderness Woman". It had a terrific ring to it, but Alex felt a sudden twinge of uncertainty. She'd traded in her Wall Street job and fancy condo for a rundown cabin in the woods and a bait and tackle store. She'd wanted to escape the rat race and to go husband-hunting where men outnumbered women four to one, but was she ready for the challenge?

    Predictable but very funny book read by C. J. Critt. We found ourselves laughing out loud at the antics of the various characters. If you like the Stephanie Plum books you will certainly like this earlier book by Janet Evanovich.

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    Curtis says: "Should be Section One, not Book One"
    "Very Different"
    Overall

    This book created a "love/hate" relationship with me but, after finishing it, I came out on the "love" side of the equation. The whole concept of two parallel realities was new to me and somewhat confusing at times. After threatening to quit at several points in the narritive, I decided to persevere and finish. After finally acclimating to the dual worlds, I actually began to enjoy the novel and even look forward to the second book in the trilogy. This trilogy has to be read in order!
