    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Okay, I read some of the reviews before I listened to the last three Ryan books. Of the three, this was my favorite. Mixing the politics of Washington, our relationship with China and then Jack juniors love life as he did made for a very enjoyable book. How do I tell if I like it? If I drive home and enter my garage, turn off the engine and then sit there to finish a chapter or hear the end of the event, then I know I like it. I sat in my garage 5 times with this book. Case closed.

    Two lonely towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, 12 miles of empty road. Jack Reacher never turns back. It's not in his nature. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets is big trouble. So in Lee Child's electrifying new novel, Reacher - a man with no fear, no illusions, and nothing to lose - goes to war against a town that not only wants him gone, it wants him dead.

    Not my favorite, I have listened to series in order, this one wasn't as engaging as the other 12 I've already either read or listened to. Story line about a town named Despair and the horrible things going on there were a little out there for a Jack Reacher book. Strange is all I can say.

    Sifting through reams of seemingly unrelated intelligence, CIA analyst Katherine Rule discovers a chilling pattern: an ultrasecret Baltic submarine base...a crafty Russian spy-master in command...a carefully planned invasion about to be launched from dark waters. Her suspicions, however, are dismissed by those higher up; her theory, they say, is too crazy to be true. But to Katherine, it’s just crazy enough to succeed - unless she can stop it. If she’s right, an attack sub has already penetrated friendly waters.

    Not my favorite of the three Will Lee books I've listened to, however it adds the depth to the future books I'm sure the series needs. Looking forward to the next in the series, I like Stone, but I think I prefer this series.

    Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

    Good listen, like the series, like this book. Sorry to see that it probably isn't going to work out with Jack and his girl, but waiting for the next book or two to see what happens. I just heard about this author and the series this year because of the movie. Glad to find it, recomend it for those of you who want action, but don't necessarily need it to be in the form of a terrorist. Good twisted detective series.

    After a shocking loss, Stone Barrington is at loose ends, unsure if he wants to stay in New York and continue his work as a partner at Woodman & Weld. It comes as a welcome relief when he's summoned to Washington, D.C., by President Will Lee. The president has a special operation that calls for Stone's unique skill set, and it's a mission that will reunite him with his former partner in crime and in bed, Holly Barker.

    Talk about a bummer, this one was not what I expected. Tony gets thumbs up from me, one of my favorite narrators. He seems to have these characters down pat. I think if I had to listen to this series with any other narrator it wouldn't be the same. As always, not great literature, but always entertaining.

Retracing the PI's trail back to New York, Reacher's compelled to find out who was looking for him and why. He never expected the reasons to be so personal - and twisted.

    I continue the saga of the Jack Reacher series, this one was performed very well by Mr. McClain. I think I read a review that was a little rough on this narrator in the series, I would have to say that Jonathon did an excellent job in my eye. I really like this series, different than a normal cop and robber story line, but still every bit as engaging. I think of this as a Columbo on steriods. A bit odd, but great story lines and character development. Good work.

    I started this series with Chiefs of course and have listened to many of Stuarts Stone B. series books, however I have to say this book is my absolute favorite. The story kept me engaged, I loved how the characters were developed and intertwined. The only thing about the book I didn't care much for was the ending and the closing one way or another of Will's and Connie's relationship. I was rooting for them to get back together, but alas, it appears not to be so in this book. I guess I'm on to the next book to see.

    A new addition to the New York Times best-selling Stone Barrington series. After an eventful trip to Bel-Air and a reunion with his sophisticated (and very wealthy) former love, Arrington Calder, Stone Barrington is back in New York, and he's looking to stay closer to home and cash in on his partnership at Woodman & Weld. But Arrington has other plans for Stone... including introducing him to the child he fathered many years ago.

    Great book for finding out a lot of questions on Stone's relationship with Arrington. Too bad it didn't last again. No real story other than them hooking up with the aftermath. I guess we will be hearing lots more about Peter. Liked it, didn't love it.

    Dumped by his glamorous Russian girlfriend during dinner at Elaine's, and running low on cash, Stone Barrington is having a bad week. So his luck seems to be improving when he's hired to locate the missing son of a very wealthy man - lucky because the job pays well, and because the son is hiding in the tropical paradise of Key West. But when Stone and his sometime running buddy Dino Bacchetti arrive in the sunny Keys, it appears that someone has been lying in wait.

    Listening to all the books. Tony does a great job with the narration. Not great literature, but entertaining. Something like listening or reading a script for a day time drama. Don't read or listen to if you are a literature snob, you won't like it. Want to chuckle and leave with an interesting story and a smile on your face, then listen.

    Listened to the first book, it was great, read the reviews for the second and third where everyone dissed the narrater, can't agree with their call. Story line on this one was a little hokey with the militia members being brain dead zombies, but overall it was an interesting story that I enjoyed listening to. By the way, if Mr. McClain is a boring narrater, let me offer up some other books I've listened to. Mr. McClain does a good job, keeps the characters differentiated, only struggled with the female characters.

    Just finished this listen on the way home from work Friday. Went back on line to down load a couple of the S.B. series I haven't listened to yet. Read the reviews by many, pretty surprised by the feedback. For those who listen to a lot of books, Tony does one of the best jobs of any of the narraters I listen to. Seperation of the characters is difficult, Tony does a great job with this. As far as the Barrington series go, I listen because they are fun, only slightly racy and entertaining. Maybe not great literature, but they can make you laugh, keep you in some suspense and bring you in to like the characters. What more should you ask for in a series meant to entertain, not think.
