    About to depart on his first vacation in years, Edward Wozny, a hotshot young investment banker, is sent to help one of his firm's most important and mysterious clients. His task is to search their library stacks for a precious medieval codex, a treasure kept sealed away for many years and for many reasons.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Provide an ending commensurate with the buildup. The author takes great pains to develop the central character, but does little to hold up an interesting story as it relates to the title. The ending is akin to driving though a small town with one stop light...if you blink you'll miss it.

    One man's journey from someplace to someplace else....


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Kim Harrison's new book


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Delivery was fine...no complaints

    Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood. She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the series to a friend. Each book builds on the previous book or books. Some might consider each book as a standalone, but I got so much more out of the series.


    What about Marguerite Gavin???s performance did you like?

    Her performance was excellent. She has a comforting tone and her inflections are on the mark.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    In St. Peter's Basilica, a man sits in a confessional asking forgiveness for a murder he's about to commit. And a young priest begins a desperate journey to stop him....It's only the beginning of a ruthless race among the world's most powerful to find a rumored cache of sacred texts inscribed with the story of Creation as told by Abraham. This account, on tablets of clay, predates the Bible by a thousand years and could be one of the most important discoveries of all time.

    Dyane says: "Excellent Read, Hard Listen"
    "Poor entertainment"
    Overall

    20 hours of a ponderous plot, tepid suspense, and an unsatisfying conclusion...AND to top it off, the narrator has absolutely no tempo or inflection in her recitation...there is nothing redeeming in this offering

    The police are convinced that Julia Ransom was guilty of the brutal murder of her husband, renowned psychic August Ransom. But after six months of investigation and media frenzy, she is free of their scrutiny, because of the lack of evidence. One afternoon she walks from her Pacific Heights home to Fisherman's Wharf, alone, unwatched - and, she realizes, happy. But not for long.

    Heidi says: "Intense "reading""
    "See Jane run"
    Overall

    This is the most simple-minded, non-plausible story line that I have read in many, many years.

    If Ridley Jones had slept 10 minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect, with only the tiny cracks of an angry junkie for a brother and a charming drunk with shady underworld connections for an uncle to mar the otherwise flawless whole.

    Linda Ann Howson says: "Give it a chance"

    This is an excellent story! Good plot line and character development. It was very easy and pleasant to visualize the characters. The narration is first rate. Well written in first person dialouge.

    When his plane exploded off the coast of Maine, authorities thought they had seen the last of Teddy Fay, the ex-CIA tech wizard who kills his political targets for sport. But now they've found irrefutable evidence that he is alive and up to his old tricks.

    Kathleen says: "Didn't Finish It."
    "A complete waste!"
    Overall

    On balance, one of the worst attempts at fiction I've seen in a long time. The plot line and charater development are non-existent. Sub-plots are completely unrealistic. It is formulaic while providing a most unsatisfactory ending. A highly anticipated root beer float without the ice cream.
