    Tommy Carmellini is sent to post guard duty at a farmhouse in Virginia's remote Blue Ridge Mountains, where top government operatives are debriefing a star defector: the ultimate KGB insider, a man with records on every operation and every dirty trick the shadowy intelligence agency has ever run, from Lenin to Putin.

    Andrew Stone says: "Fast Paced - Good Read!"
    "Great fun read"
    Overall

    Really enjoyed this...nice humor, twisted plot lines, good characters. Reader has excellent command of voices and conveys the humor and drama in excellent fashion (though wish he would pause briefly at "change of scene!" Carmellini is a very promising character...

    Red Cell follows Kyra Stryker and Jonathan Burke, two outcasts in the Agency who are brought together in the Red Cell, the agency’s out-of-the-box think tank. Stryker is a young and beautiful agent who’s struggling to recover from a job gone bad, while Burke is a straight-laced analyst who’s pissed off all his colleagues. When a raid on Chinese spies in Taiwan ends in a shootout, CIA Director Cooke turns to the Red Cell to figure out why China is ready to invade the island nation without any fear of reprisal.

    Jean says: "Good action story"
    "Terrific first novel...performance only average."

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

    A truly excellent first effort from an "insider's" perspective (Henshaw was a former CIA analyst). Also adds some Tom-Clancy-like military action.


    What three words best describe Rob Patterson’s performance?

    Choppy reading in places; poor transitions (e.g., often provides no audible pause when scenes change.)

    (Sorry...three words just didn't work!)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but it gave me goosebumps a few times -- some of the scenarios were way too plausible!


    Any additional comments?

    Reallly looking forward to Henshaws next effort. I'll buy it for sure!

    Stewart Dubinsky knew his father had served in World War II. And he'd been told how David Dubin (as his father had Americanized the name that Stewart later reclaimed) had rescued Stewart's mother from the horror of the Balingen concentration camp. But when he discovers, after his father's death, a packet of wartime letters to a former fiancee, and learns of his father's court-martial and imprisonment, he is plunged into the mystery of his family's secret history.

    Janet C. Walker says: "Excellent"
    "Captivating, powerful, insightful"
    Overall

    While there are indeed disturbing scenes in the book (never has war been captured more graphically in print, nor the horrors of German concentration camps), the writing is lovely, the characters very real and believable, and the reading by Edward Herrmann is spectacularly good. (His accents are wonderful and help easily distinguish the different characters). Not for everyone, certainly, but one of my best "reads" in years!
