    In a thrilling narrative showcasing his gifts as storyteller and researcher, Erik Larson recounts the spellbinding tale of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Also available abridged.

    Story

    WOW! My first Erik Larson book and definitely not my last. I only wish Scott Brick was the narrator for the one I just bought. From the first sentence through the last one, I was completely taken in by this story and this performance. I learned so much and I enjoyed every second of it. I can't even think of a book that was as "perfect" (I hate to use that word) as this one and definitely better to listen because of Scott Brick than it would have been if I had read it. It sounds like a novel but of course, it's true, which made it even more exciting. Loved it!!

    Jessica Ames is desperate. Her college-age son, Brandon, has been arrested for murder, and the evidence is stacked against him. His DNA matches the blood and skin found under the victim's fingernails, and the murder weapon was recovered near his apartment. Jessica turns to the only lawyer she knows for help. Nate Daniels is no criminal defense attorney; he's a highly successful corporate litigator. He also has unresolved feelings for Jessica.

    Suspend disbelief when you listen. It was good enough to pull me through to the end even though the narrator used pretty much the same tentative voice for all the characters.

    From the internationally best-selling author of the acclaimed novel The Power of the Dog comes The Cartel, a gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines story of power, corruption, revenge, and justice spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars.

    Story

    I bought both books in this series and lived with the story (and Ray Porter's stunning narration) for days because I could not stop listening until I'd heard both of them. Don Winslow's stories (which are so very and scarily true) will not leave my brain. I cannot recommend this pair of books enough. Was already read a fan of Don Winslow but the research he must have put in to be able to write The Cartel and Power of the Dog is mind-boggling. Buy these. Start listening. Buckle up.

    Jack Wade, a claims adjuster for California Fire and Life Mutual Insurance Company, is one of the best arson investigators around. He's a man who knows fire, who can read the traces it leaves behind like a roadmap. When he's called in to examine an unusual claim, the tracks of the fire tell him that something's wrong. So wrong that he violates his own cardinal rule - "You don't get personal, you don't get emotional. Whatever you do, you don't get involved" - and plunges into the case.

    John S says: "A book about an insurance adjuster, oh yea."

    Have liked several of Don Winslow's other books but this one...incredible. Wanted to listen to all 10+ hours at once, but of course, couldn't because...I have clients who need me. Oh, and sleep is good. But other than that...I was listening. Excellent on all counts. Narrator was ideal.

    A Lincoln Navigator carries three well-dressed people through the barren New Jersey salt flats. The trip is uncomfortable but necessary. Their target has no phone, certainly no email, and never answers his mail. But August Jorgenson is no country bumpkin. Before retiring, he was one of the most famous judges in the country, and only opinions like his fierce opposition to the death penalty kept him from a seat on the Supreme Court.

    Maybe the first 30-45 minutes were a little slow but then once I got into the story, I HAD to know what was going on and how it would turn out. There are some MOST unlikeable characters in the book but the judge is wonderful. Different story and worth reading/listening to. But with this narrator, listening was the best!

    Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.

    Story

    I listened to every word and wanted to. I kept thinking about John Grisham's intentions on this book and if he very purposely wrote it with this pace and so that readers/listeners could not stop thinking/talking about some of what was going on in the book. If he purposely made none of the characters likable so that we weren't rooting for any of them but rather paying attention to what was happening in the story. I can't give it a 5 overall but I can't give the story less than a 4. The performance was just right. I recommend it but don't think it's like some of Grisham's other books. It isn't. If he wants to do some social commentary, he's earned the right to do so, I think.

    Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

    Story

    If this is your first Jack Reacher book, start ordering now and listen to them all. If you have read or listened to every single one, then hang on because *maybe* this is the best so far. And the story will stay with you. Thankfully, this book was long (13+ hours) and every minute was worth listening to. Outstanding with Dick Hill, of course, but the creativity of Lee Child to imagine and write this story is what is truly to be marveled at. Order this now and listen right away. I won't stop thinking about the background of this story...because it's troubling and I have no idea what the solution is.

    A behind-the-scenes operator at the CIA, Wallace was integral to the agency's secret war against China's national intelligence service, which infiltrates government offices, major businesses, and systems crucial to our security. Wallace had severely damaged China's Washington spy ring with a devastating ruse, a so-called "black swan", in which a deep-undercover female agent targeted and destroyed a key Chinese official. Now, Wallace's mysterious death suggests that the CIA itself has been compromised and that China has someone inside the agency.

    GREAT book! And thank goodness, Dick Hill was the narrator! I wanted to listen to the whole book in one sitting but instead, had to spread it over days (work and sleep demand attention, of course). If this is your first Deutermann, go back and listen to all the others. They are all excellent. Let's keep these coming PT!

    In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture in this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.

But it seems she's not the only one in the family with something to hide. When Charlotte announces she's sold her first novel, Ella couldn't be more thrilled...until she gets a call that her sister's gone missing.

    Big fan of Adam Mitzner and Erin Bennett did a fine job narrating. The number of twists and turns show Mitzner's creativity in telling a story. There were parts that were uneven or unbelievable but they didn't last long. I am an Audible fanatic for the entertainment and distraction from other concerns and this definitely did both.

It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.
