    Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend, Hughie McDonough, dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City - and to get revenge on Michael Bennett. To escape the chaos, Bennett takes his 10 kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, on a much-needed vacation to his family's cabin near Newburgh, New York. But instead of the calm and happy town he remembers, they step into a nightmare.

    I am a huge fan of James Patterson. The Alex Cross novels for the most part. I went ahead and jumped head first into the Michael Bennett series b/c there were only 5 total so I know i could afford to read them all and I would be able to start from the beginning. They started a bit slow for me but have completely turned around. This book was excellent!!! And you wont be able to guess how it ends which is cool.

    Philosopher, Broadway headliner, fighter, felon - Mike Tyson has defied stereotypes, expectations, and a lot of conventional wisdom during his three decades in the public eye. Bullied as a boy in the toughest, poorest neighborhood in Brooklyn, Tyson grew up to become one of the most thrilling and ferocious boxers of all time - and the youngest heavyweight champion ever. But his brilliance in the ring was often compromised by reckless behavior.

    Story

    Mike Tyson should be ashamed of himself. He is a pathetic joke of a man, I am saying this even though I know he could knock me out. It does seem like he has gotten blamed for quite a few things he may not have done. But the facts are that he has proven time and time again that he does not deserve the benefit of the doubt. Overall he is truly just a very bad person.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    I am a HUGE fan of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. I may even be a bigger fan of Bob the Skeleton Head. Jim Butcher has proven to be a master of story telling. I not only love the lead character Harry Dresden. I feel like I would miss almost every other character that plays even a tiny role in this entire book. Keep them coming is as simple as I can make it...

    I truly cant believe this is only Mark Greaney's 2nd novel. I have honestly never came across an action novel along the lines of Brad Thor or Vince Flynn that truly did not have a single boring second in the entire book. The Gray Man series is so good that I dont want to read the next novel in the series b/c it is the last one so far. It had better not be the last novel in the series b/c that would be a tragedy

    This was a great offer. I would have never bought this book. The reason for this is that i truly had no clue that i would have any interest in listening to this sci fi/fantasy type of novel. The cool thing is that I LOVED this entire sampler and will buy this book the day it comes out. Another cool thing about this sampler is that it made me search for other books with the whole sci fi type vibe and i came across Jim Butcher and his Harry Dresden series and check this. I am loving it and will be sure to listen to all 14 books in the series!!! Awesome stuff!!!

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

    By far and away the best listen I have had so far!!! It had me hooked from the first paragraph to the last. From start to finish I listened to it in less than a day and a half. I also like to listen to multiple books at a time but the second i started this listen I did not stop until it was finished!
