    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Spymaster to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I loved the audioversion.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story kept me interested and entertained the entire book.


    What does David Colacci bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narration was great and helped you to feel the different charicters, not just read them, or in this case, listen to them.


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

    The book had some humor but was a good suspense novel.

    A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful and the arrogant. His message is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences! For some, it seems that the rich are finally getting what they deserve. For New York's elite, it is a call to terror.

    Only one man can tackle such a high-profile case: Detective Mike Bennett. The pressure is enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his ten children-all of whom have come down with virulent flu at once!

    Discovering a secret pattern in The Teacher's lessons, Detective Bennett realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history.

    This was a good read, but too short for me. I like longer books that are more developed and I was a bit disappointed in the book not making more of the issues.

    Lawrence Sanders's masterpiece, The First Deadly Sin, set a standard for today's novels of psychological suspense. Now, retired Captain Ed Delaney returns to a distinctly urban milieu of paranoia and impulsive violence to solve a brutal murder that shocks New York's unshockable art world. The victim is Victor Maitland. Long-considered one of the world's greatest artists, he excelled in capturing the beauty of life on canvas. In private, he destroyed whomever he pleased: his wife, his son, his mistress, his dearest friends and family.

    John says: "Really Really Good!"

    It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

    What did you like best about New York to Dallas? What did you like least?

    It was somewhat likeable, but mostly predictable, written in a future time, when there was no reason for it and just did not do anything for me.


    Would you recommend New York to Dallas to your friends? Why or why not?

    I dont think I would recommend this book to other, since I feel it was a waste of my credit, but I listened to all of it before I judged it.


    Any additional comments?

    If you find it on the $4.95 sale or 2 for 1 sale, then it might be a good deal. Other than that, don't waste your time.

Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

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

    It took me a while to get into this book, but it was worth it. I enjoyed it and was sorry it ended when it did. I would recommend this book to others that are into technology, or gaming, or a good terrorist kill plot with the correct ending.

    Zula: She was an innocent bystander and though she was caught up in a bad situation, she stood up to it and did something about it when she had a chance.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The accidental discovery of a terrorist cell in China.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The computer virus that infected a terrorist organization.
