    A tale of terrorism, espionage, and an epic struggle for justice in an America on the verge, sparked by a massive and mysterious explosion in New York Harbor in 1916.

    That year, while the Allied and Central forces waged war in Europe, a group of German saboteurs blew up Black Tom Island, a spit of land in New York Harbor within earshot of downtown Manhattan. The subsequent hail of missiles and gunpowder devastated much of lower New York City.

    Dana Lynn says: "Read great,great story telling."

    Overall

    Millman brings a little recognized part of history to life. He tells the story in a way that keeps one coming back to find out what happened.

    Story

    Fatherland is set in an alternative world where Hitler has won the Second World War. It is April 1964 and one week before Hitler’s 75th birthday. Xavier March, a detective of the Kriminalpolizei, is called out to investigate the discovery of a dead body in a lake near Berlin’s most prestigious suburb. As March discovers the identity of the body, he uncovers signs of a conspiracy that could go to the very top of the German Reich.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Gripping from start to finish"
    "Engaging Story in a Make Believe Fatherland"
    Overall

    The touch of a "possible" historical background of Hitler winning WWII adds a new twist to this adventure. The characters are believable in Harris's style, and the narrator does a very good job. Just a fun mystery with some not so fun twists superimposed by Hitler's influences on Germany.

    A New York Times best seller, Founding Brothers is an engrossing work of nonfiction from National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Joseph J. Ellis. It is a book that uncovers the substance behind many of our most cherished historical tales. Here are six fascinating, well-researched chapters involving such icons as George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison.

    Vernon says: "Remarkably moving book"
    "Well researched and told"
    Overall

    I found the story well researched and told by Joseph Ellis. I was almost disappointed when it ended. The narrator, Nelson Runger, has a pleasant voice and appropriate energy. His swallowing is a disappointing distraction and one that should have been prevented. I enjoyed the book and the narration, just not the recording

  • The Bell Messenger

    Adventurer and author Robert Cornuke delivers an archaeological thriller that crosses the globe and spans two centuries. With these hopeful words, a dying Confederate lad bequeaths his Bible to the Union soldier who just shot him: "Be God's messenger as I have been." And so begins the journey of Elijah Bell's cherished Bible as it travels the world, transforming hearts wherever it goes.

    Pamela says: "Loved it!"
    "Captivating"
    Overall

    Listening to Robert Cornuk's "The Bell Messenger" while driving to and from the office each day was a great way to start and end my day. The weaving of the story through several periods of history was well thought-out and engaging. The story ended all too quickly. The narrator, Henry Strozier brought the words to life. My only constructive criticism would be to more carefully record some of the readings as listening to Mr. Stozier breath and swallow can be distracting. Overall - an enjoyable tale.
