    Former naval doctor Peter Crane is summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to an ancient mystery.

    Story

    Scott Brick has a nice voice but should stick to reading non-fiction. This is a moderately good story but, as usual, Scott Brick's melodramatic performance makes it very hard to listen too. Skip this one.

    Story

    This is a great book. James Lee Burke is one of my favorite authors. However, the narration is terrible. There is very little differentiation between the characters voices and almost no attempt at adding any kind of emotion. All of them (with a couple of exceptions) sound like hillbillies with a sinus infection. I love Will Patton's narration of this series. He brings the characters and the accents to life. Mark Hammer is the complete opposite. I struggled to get through this book. It's disappointing because I really would love to listen to the whole series. Do yourself a favor and buy a hard copy of the ones not narrated by Will Patton.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    "Decent Book, Bad Narrator"
    Overall

    This is a decent story. Very similar to Stephen King. Scott Brick is a terrible narrator. He has a nice voice but his performance (as always) is WAY too melodramatic. It really distracts from the story for me. I almost didn't buy it when I saw he was narrating but the book intrigued me.

    Cotton Malone retired from the high-risk world of elite operatives to lead the life of a rare-book dealer. But his quiet existence is shattered when he receives an anonymous e-mail: "You have something I want. You're the only person on earth who knows where to find it. If I don't hear from you, you will be childless." His ex-wife confirms that their teenage son has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that those responsible will stop at nothing to get what they want: the lost library of Alexandria.

    Glenda says: "Very Entertaining"
    "Decent Story - Terrible Narrator"
    Overall

    The story is entertaining enough, but the narrator is absolutely awful. I can't understand why he keeps getting hired to read books. I would have gone with 4 stars if not for that.

    The U.S. Speaker of the House is assassinated in a terrifyingly precise execution in the heart of Washington, D.C. In a quieter corner of the nation's capital, the rare book room of the Library of Congress, a reclusive, wealthy scholar drops dead under mysterious circumstances that leave no clues. Following on the heels of the natural death of the Speaker of the House, the city and the nation begin to tremble.

    Marc Swanson says: "Difficult to listen to!!!"
    "Good Story - Distracting narration"
    Overall

    This is a good book but the multiple narrators are very distracting and cause the story to be very choppy. The main narrator has a grating voice and the female makes every character sound like a phone sex operator. Buy this one at the bookstore. Don't waste an Audible credit.

    Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in America's wealthiest resort town: legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips. His clients make a living serving the rich. The billionaires and celebrities swarming the beaches already have lawyers on their payroll.

    Overall

    Don't waste a credit on this book! The 'dramatized' reading is horrible. It sounds like a really bad radio drama from several years ago. It might have worked a little better for me with one talented reader as opposed to several untalented ones. It's a tired old story line with a really stupid twist at the end!
