John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    Story

    Ambrose Lincoln is one of the government's prized operatives, a trained assassin, a man whose past is continually erased by mind control tactics and shock treatments. His days have no meaning. He no longer fears death. As far as he is concerned, a man without a memory is a man who's already dead. From Germany come rumors of a mad man threatening to rule Europe and maybe the world.

    If you could sum up Secrets of the Dead in three words, what would they be?

    Incredible, Compelling & Gripping


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Secrets of the Dead?

    There were many throughout the story and it is very unpredictable.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Woodfin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen by Stephen Woodfin and he delivers the story with compassion.


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

    I did not want to take a break from the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Ambrose Lincoln is a well oiled machine that is programmed to fix things. He relies heavily on his instincts as he is given yet another mission that will push him to his limits. He must find the woman in Germany with the tell-all film which her father used to take pictures of the German soldiers killing the Jews. Ambrose knows little about the assignment but is given clues throughout his journey. He must rely on his keen wit, unfailing instincts, and common sense he was born with.
    Caleb Pirtle will surprise you at ever corner with his intellectual knowledge of history, and ability to weave a story through time that is unforgettable. Hitler’s reign in Germany is brought to life in Mr. Pirtle’s book and I wouldn’t be surprised if this story was actually true. The fact that this could have taken place is compelling and will leave you wanting more. Ambrose Lincoln completes his mission, but not without consequences. He is the lost hero, the forgotten soldier and in some peoples eyes, a lost soul.
    While the story is dark and suspenseful, I must warn you, you will not be able to stop listening. I’m looking forward to another Ambrose Lincoln audible. A 007 agent in his time.

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

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

    Not my preferred reading. Decided to listen to it to see what the hype was about. More geared to younger people.


    What could E. L. James have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have created more plots. Used same adjetives alot,


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s voice?

    Well spoken except for man's part.


    Did Fifty Shades of Grey inspire you to do anything?

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....
