    After narrowly surviving his last operation, Gabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, has taken refuge behind the walls of the Vatican, where he is restoring one of Caravaggio's greatest masterpieces. But early one morning he is summoned to St. Peter's Basilica by Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman lies broken beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not a barn burner, but sufficiently entertaining to while away the commuting hours.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    stretches were over-long, and some characters could have been fleshed out more.

    Red Cell follows Kyra Stryker and Jonathan Burke, two outcasts in the Agency who are brought together in the Red Cell, the agency’s out-of-the-box think tank. Stryker is a young and beautiful agent who’s struggling to recover from a job gone bad, while Burke is a straight-laced analyst who’s pissed off all his colleagues. When a raid on Chinese spies in Taiwan ends in a shootout, CIA Director Cooke turns to the Red Cell to figure out why China is ready to invade the island nation without any fear of reprisal.

    Was Red Cell worth the listening time?

    A plausible story and good suspense level. A decent way to while away the commuting hours.

    Keith Stewart, a retiring and ingenious engineer, could not have been happier in his little house in the shabby London suburb of Ealing. There he invented the mini-motor, the six-volt generator, and the tiny Congreve clock. Then a chain of events sweeps him into deep waters and leads him to his happiest discovery yet.

    What made the experience of listening to Trustee from the Toolroom the most enjoyable?

    In a world of blockbuster thrillers and high drama (which I greatly enjoy), this quiet, quaint little story is like a relaxing little island vacation.

    Farahad Zama's debut novel transports listeners to faraway India for a story brimming with endearing characters, homespun wisdom, and blossoming love. After Mr. Ali retires, he launches a matchmaking service that helps an array of clients arrange marriages. But he's unaware of his able assistant's dire need for his marriage bureau.

    Four years ago, race car driver Tracey Bradshaw almost died in a horrific crash. Now scarred inside and out, she's making a comeback, but her team is plagued by a series of "accidents."

    Story
    What would have made Dangerous Race better?

    Somehow I missed that this was a romance first and a race/mystery. Not a big car race fan, but its not about driving the car fast - all of the cars are fast, its about tactics with the other cars. That's missing here. Also the mystery is stuck in first gear.

    Eluding the law has always been high on Dortmunder's list. But getting caught red-handed is inevitable in his next caper, when a TV producer convinces this thief and his merry gang to star in a reality show that captures their next score. The producer even guarantees to keep the show from being used as evidence against them. They're dubious at first, but the pay's good, so they sign on.

    Mark says: "Westlake's best book"
    "Breezy farce"
