    When Joe Ledger and Echo Team rescue a group of American college kids held hostage in Iran, the Iranian government then asks them to help find six nuclear bombs planted in the Mideast oil fields. These stolen WMDs will lead Joe and Echo Team into hidden vaults of forbidden knowledge, mass-murder, betrayal, and a brotherhood of genetically-engineered killers with a thirst for blood.

    Would you listen to Assassin's Code again? Why?

    I rarely reread books... Once read or listened too... the stay in my head... but I think I could see myself re-listening to the whole Joe Ledger Series again... It would be like changing the channels in the middle of the night and coming across a movie or series from my teenage years... unable to change the changel cause the excitement was back and even though you know the ending.. its fresh again!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Assassin's Code?

    The ending phone call... Joe deserved a break!!!


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Ray Porter is a great reader... the way he fleshes out his characters... different voices, accents, manners of speaking...


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next novel in the series... in fact I will have to check out some of the other books written by Mr. Mayberry!

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Picked it up on the $4.95 sale and I am not sorry! Same thing happened when I picked up the first Felix Castor book on sale. I love that audible give you a chance to pick up a book for cheap... you take more of a chance and low and behold... you get a gem! Looking forward to the rest of the books!

    Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career - and her confidence - after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O’Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O’Connor’s friend and chief of staff...and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    I can't believe I found another great author because of zombie theme that I seem to be stuck on... I first found Peter Clines now Mark Tufo... they are two different animal but very entertaining! First of all I totally fell in love with the Mike - the main character... His voice was so familiar... I could see my self in his shoes. Not the mention the Sean Runnettes reading really brought the story to life and place me front and center with in the action. I was nervous, I was scared, I laughed out loud! I just downloaded the next 4 books in the series (must always take advantage of a sale). I'm also glad that Mark Tufo has other books to look forward to once I finish this series. Thank you Mr. Tufo and Mr. Runnette!

    Would you try another book from David Weber and/or Allyson Johnson?

    I will not continue reading the Honor books. I found the plot to be good but I didn't like the "too many attention to details" that Mr. Weber concentrated on. It made the book drag for me. I though Allyson Johnson did a good job - event though I hated Honor's voice. I would try another book that Ms. Johnson is the reader on!


    Would you recommend On Basilisk Station to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend On Basilisk Station to my friends. Even though it was interesting and I wanted to see how it ended, I found the book frustrating with too many details.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to read the book on the recommendation of Steve Gibson (Security Now Podcast). He introduced me to the wonderful worlds of Peter F Hamilton but I just did not find David Weber to be my cup of tea.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

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

    Yes, but only if they read the entire series!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a non stop clusterf***k in the making... it seemed that there was no way Harry could overcome so many obstacles.... But Dresden finds a way... though he didn't exactly get lemonade after so many lemons... Harry lives to fight another day!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Towards the end... the events that took place on the Island... so many twist... so much story to tell!


    Any additional comments?

    I saw an interview with Jim Butcher and sadly this series isn't open ended... He has a final book planned... whenever that is... I could listen to Harry in Marsters voice for years to come....

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    Yes, Koontz is one of my favorite writers and Baker is very pleasant to listen to..


    Do you think Odd Apocalypse needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes because we have not come to the end of Odd's Journey.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good but I was a little annoyed with the "too" detailed descriptions... felt more like filler then story…

A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter Legion?

    Seeing how Edward reacted to Tanya


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    Owen of course!


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

    Chuckle out loud... while on a crowded NYC Bus.

    It is the distant future. The world known as Virga is a fullerene balloon 3,000 kilometers in diameter, filled with air, water, and aimlessly floating chunks of rock. The humans who live in this vast environment must build their own fusion suns and "towns" that are in the shape of enormous wood and rope wheels that are spun for gravity.
