    Aaron Littmann, the chairman of one of the country's most prestigious law firms, has just been contacted by a high-profile defense attorney whose client is Nikolai Garkov, a Russian businessman arraigned on terrorism charges for pulling the financial strings behind recent treasonous acts. The attorney informs Aaron that Garkov is looking to switch representation and will pay $100,000 just to take the meeting.

    Story

    I usually try not to write reviews for a good book with a bad reader, but I had to give a review on this one. Overall the reader's voice is fine. I struggled with his voices for different people in the book. Many of his voices sounded exactly the same as other voices. Many of his voices kind of sounded like he was doing an impersonation of Kip from Napoleon Dynamite. The story took a little while to get going but overall I did enjoy the story.

    The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar or a parking lot or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world.

    Story

    I'm not sure about the negative reviews for this book. I really enjoyed it. Two of my favorite Coben books were Tell No One and No Second Chance. I felt like this book was more in line with both of those books. I also enjoyed the fact that the language and violence were minimal.

    This explosive novel of the drug trade takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.

    Story

    I listened to about three hours worth. The language was so bad- I just could not take it. I know the drug scene is rough, but I don't need the f-word in every sentence.

    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    Story

    Stay Close is on par with Harlan Coben's other stand alone novels. It was engaging and the story line continued to move through out the entire book. I'm not sure why there are some reviewers who seemed to hate Scott Brick's narration. I have listened to probably 30 books narrated by Scott and he does a great job through all of them.

  • Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections between Sexuality and Spirituality

    God and sex go together. You can't separate the two, says Rob Bell, because this physical world is intimately linked to deeper spiritual realities. And so, in order to make sense of sexuality, at some point you have to talk about God. With beauty and unusual insight, Sex God explores this connection.

    Adam says: "A Sex Book that is so much more than about Sex"
    "if you are a parent of a teen..."
    Overall

    If you are a parent of a teenager, or even a younger child- this book is a must read. Rob does a great job discussing sexuality and the dangers of making your child an 'angel' or letting your child be an 'animal.'
