    It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops. Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Rapp and his team soon discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC.

    Overall

    This has been my favorite Rapp book to date. Mitch Rapp kicks a-- from beginning to end. When he is not taking out the bad guys, he is putting the spineless politicians in their place. I love Mitch Rapp and if Flynn ever takes him out, I am done. These books give me the escape I need from the political divide that exist in our country today. Hats off to Mr Guidall as he does a great job with the narration.

    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

    Story

    What an amazing book. The book will bring tears to your eyes in the first section of simply setting up the story. It gives us as bit of kindness from a nasty war in which both sides sacrificed so much. This is a story of good men asked to defend their Country and they choose to do it with honor and dignity. This story happens early in the war and after you hear what both parties lived through and experienced, it is a miracle in itself that both parties lived to tell their stories. War is Hell and this amazing story came from its deepest destruction. Hats off to Adam Makos for giving us their story. For all our veterans and our active military and families, I can only tell you Thank You for your service to this Nation. I am forever grateful.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    Lets all be honest with ourselves. We got this book for the sex. We wanted to see what the hype was all about. After finally getting through it, we can have better stories reading a forum. The "sex tales" weren't all that hot and the story stinks. However, the absolute worst part of this audible tale is listening to them READ EMAILS. It never seemed to end. One email after another. Why does anyone think that makes a good story? Every email is read with the date, time, subject, sender, ending. Over and over and over to the point I was screaming at them to stop reading the emails!!!

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    Mitch Rapp is like Led Zeppelin. Hard, fast and you never grow tired of them. He is the baddest man on the planet and no other writer has come close to capturing a like character like him. DO NOT END THIS FRANCHISE!!!

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    I love this book. I love the lawyers Grisham created and I was really pulling for this collection of characters. I have read most of Grisham's books and this has to be one of my all time favorites. After reading The Confession, it was nice to follow a book that was not so heavy in content. It was as if the Keystone Cops became litigators. Good job Mr. Grisham!

  • Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

    Story

    If you are one of the many countless number of people that believe in conspiracy theories, you need to get this book. Mr. Bugliosi put his "lawyer skills" to the murder of JFK and debunks all the nut job theories that have not allow JFK to rest in peace. He takes on every conspiracy angle and gives concrete proof as to why they don't hold water. Afterwords you will wonder why anyone was ever suckered in to such nonsense. What I enjoyed most about the book was his minute by minute description of what took place before, during and after the assassination. What I didn't like about the book was the long explanations of the many conspiracy angles and why they didn't fit. I was also hoping Mr.Bugliosi would have taken more time to discredit Oliver Stone and his silly movie. It was almost like he ran out of steam by the time he addressed Mr. Stone. I would have lead with Oliver Stone as that single movie has done more to create this madness than anything else.

    Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

    Overall

    I normally pick books on guys like"Mitch Rapp" kicking butt and saving this nation, but I thought I should use a credit to educate myself. I have no idea how the big Wall Street firm's work, hedge funds, bond trading etc, and after listening to this book, I still don't. With that said, I was locked into this book. Michael Lewis did a great job of taking a subject that is designed to confuse the living daylights out of 99% of people and making you understand what occurred to get us into this mess. He established, three sets of modern day heroes who were screaming at the Wall Street Machine that what they were doing was wrong. When they wouldn't listen, they bet against them. I am floored at the level of deception and greed of so many different components to allow this to happen. How does Moody's and S&P do what they did and when confronted, not have the backbone to correct it? Why did they not have any repercussions and why didn't someone go to jail? How does the smartest people on Wall Street with Ivy league degree's allow this to occur and run their firms into the ground? Nice job guys. Do you think we really want to do business with any of you clowns after this? How does our Government and Alan Greenspan not recognize this and act? How does our Government bail out these inept Wall Street Firms and allow them to use that money and pay big executive bonuses?

    I like to believe I am a Capitalist and believe in free enterprise with less Government. However, we read stories like this and it makes you wonder if their is something better. I have never placed a great deal of trust in banks and traders and after this book, I certainly have much less faith in them. They have truly earned the name "Banksters" and maybe we should have sent in "Mitch Rapp" to clean up the entire mess. That would be a good story!!!

    Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terrorists worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world . . . and then tragedy struck.

    Overall

    Our Country has lost its moral blueprint and is full of PC nonsense. The right and left seem to be further apart today then ever before and no one wants to take a stand on putting an end to it. Muslims flew planes into building and killed thousands of Americans and today we actually have a large segment of society that will allow them to build a mosque there and accuse all that appose as being racist. What in the World has happened to us? In reality we may not be able to do anything about our direction but Mitch Rapp can! He doesn't take crap from anyone and I love reading about his "Cowboy Ways"! This book is terrific. Please keep him going.

    Each week, when Sports Illustrated's 21 million readers open up their magazine, many turn right to the last page - because that's where to find SI's most popular feature: the Life of Reilly column, written by best-selling author Rick Reilly. This new collection includes 100 of Reilly's favorite columns from the last six years, along with an introduction by Lance Armstrong.

    Rick Reilly, you are The Man. Reilly's columns are the reason I ever purchased SI. Some columns will make you laugh, some will make you cry and others will make you think about things. What a great idea to package some of his best into this collection. Give this one a listen, you won't be disappointed!!!

    Overall

    If you like learning history by reading historical documents and letters, than this book is for you. If you are looking to learn a part of history in an entertaining and captivating manner, stay away from this one. It is one long book about all the people involved in making the World's Fair and one long story about a serial killer. This could easily have been two different books. They don't intersect. There are also so many people involved in the book that it is difficult to keep up with. It is a good history lesson, but provides no entertainment value.
