    Critically acclaimed, best-selling novelist Bernard Cornwell takes listeners back to 1807 for an exciting tale of the Napoleonic Wars. Cornwell’s beloved hero, Richard Sharpe, is sent from England to Denmark on a secret mission. But as England and France fight over the powerful Danish fleet, Sharpe finds himself trapped in the war-torn city of Copenhagen.

    Story
    If you could sum up Sharpe’s Prey in three words, what would they be?

    This book shows what a superb story teller that Cornwell has become. Not as much action because of the nature of the events described in the story as other Sharpe novels, the author fill out even more detail in the already rich and complex life of Richard Sharpe. You see both his gentle and aggressive side more clearly here, and how thse decisions will create the path that Sharpe has taken in the other stories. And of course the reader Patrick Tull has given another great performance. Highly recommend this book.

    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    Story

    If you have read any Nelson DeMille books before than you know what a lot of fun that his character Det. John Corey can be. For a very enjoyable two hours of just pure escape you can't do any better than this. If you haven't read any books on Det. Corey yet this is a great way too get to know the character with out a large investment of time or money. The reader is Scott Brick (one of the best out there), and he is the reader for all the books in this series. So if you like this short story than go for the longer versions - it's a win, win situation.

    Story

    Few people realize that the Comanche Indians were the greatest warring tribe in American history. Their 40-year battle with settlers held up the development of the new nation. Empire of the Summer Moon tells of the rise and fall of this fierce, powerful, and proud tribe, and begins in 1836 with the kidnapping of a lovely nine-year-old girl with cornflower blue eyes named Cynthia Ann Parker.

    John says: "Quannah Parker"
    "Outstanding - Much better than expected"

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

    It is a fascinating and well researched history of Quanah Parker and his mother, but more than that, it provides insight into the political machinations of the various power players of the time, such as General McKenzie, who most American's know nothing about - but was probably the nation's greatest Indian fighter. How east met the west and how the demise of the indigenous peoples transpired in a no-holds barred account of the history of the times. Also Gwynne's background on the formation of the Comanche peoples and other plaines Indians was one of the best parts of the book. Gwynne has a balanced, non partisan view, painting a picture of the bloody, violent encounters based on written testimonies of the time. Highly recommended.
