    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Story

    As with all of the John Cory books I thoroughly enjoyed this one. My only criticism is that I wish the author had spent a little more time fleshing out the Panther character a little better. My opinion is that the character in the Lyon was more enjoyable to me because I felt I know him more personally due to the efforts of the author. Never the less I thoroughly enjoyed the Panther and I have recommended it to my friends. As with all the other John Cory books Scott Brick does a masterful job of bringing all the characters in the story to life. I continue to be a Nelson DeMille/Scott Brick fan.

    In Robert Ludlum's ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world's imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum's own best-selling novels, his best-selling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum's The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to best-selling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy.

    Linda says: "It sure reads like a Ludlum book!"
    "At least as good as Ludlum's writing"

    Story

    This one may even be a little better than the first books. It does require careful attention to the story line because it can change rapidly from a back story to a parallel one. I found it best not to try to listen to this while driving. It requires too much concentration and can become a distraction when driving. Over all a terrific story and as with many of the Nelson DeMille books Scott Brick does a masterful job of bringing all the characters to life.

  • Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 31 mins)

    Story

    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    Dolf says: "Half the National Debt?"
    "As always clear and concise in her statements"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Drift to be better than the print version?

    Certainly more convenient however having not read the print version I cannot compare.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The extent that those in power will go to in order to bend or even ignore the limitations on their power set down by the framers' of the Constitution.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite scene


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was enlightened by the entire book and feel strongly that everyone who cares about the way our government functions should read this book; political party notwithstanding.


    Any additional comments?

    Rachel always provides fair clear, well researched and fact checked information and I certainly was not disappointed in her endeavor to do so in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have been recommending it to my friends and aquaintances'.
