    He had led the posse for miles through the desert, but now Matt Keelock was growing desperate. He was worried about Kristina. His trip to the town of Freedom for supplies had ended in a shootout. If caught he would hang. Even though Kris could handle a horse and rifle as well as most men, the possibility of Oskar Neerland's finding her made Matt's blood run cold. He knew the violent and obsessive Neerland, publicly embarrassed when Matt had stepped in and stolen Kris away, would try to kill them both if given half a chance.

    If you could sum up The Key-Lock Man in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating Good Read


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although the plot was very familiar it had a few twists to it that kept you interested...


    Which character – as performed by Jason Culp – was your favorite?

    The hero - Matt Keelock was my favorite -


    Who was the most memorable character of The Key-Lock Man and why?

    It is difficult in Louis L'Amour's books to side with anyone but the main character - in this case Matt Keelock.


    Any additional comments?

    Like all of his writings Louis L'Amour does a great job of describing the wild west - I'm a horse rancher in Canada's desert country and enjoy the realism of his characters and their surroundings.

    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

    Where does A Higher Call rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is by far the absolute best book that I have ever listened to so far.....(I am a long time member with over 100 books in my library.....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Toss up between Frans and Charlie - but more Frans


    Which character – as performed by Robertson Dean – was your favorite?

    Frans


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several parts during the air battle with Frans and Charlie - but the ending moved me to tears.. I listen while driving and I just about had to pull over it was becoming difficult to see the road...


    Any additional comments?

    The historical facts opened my eyes to the fact there is a big difference between German soldiers and the Party members.... I'm from Dutch descent and up until now I had not realized how much Germany suffered under Hitler's reign.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Suspect to be better than the print version?

    Never read the book - loved the audio edition!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes indeed! The plot was living emotion, it was so well written that I found my self driving further and slower (I listen to the audio while I drive) This was an intense novel.I was disappointed when I finished the book - definitely will purchase more by this writer.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Very tough question to answer There was Scott James the main human characterMaggie his K-9 partner (I liked her so much I wanted to buy a German Shepherd.And I know its strange but I really liked the tough K-9 Unit Sargent Dominique Leland


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was that captivating....


    Any additional comments?

    First book by this author - I was very impressed. Have looked for more to purchase.

    Worth Listening To


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The narrator - he captivates your attention with his voice. Very easy to listen to.

    Doctor Mark


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

    There were many times I said,


    Any additional comments?

    Very thought provoking and extremely insightful. I've listened to it more than once. Found my self driving slower so I could hear more of the book. Bottom line about any book is the hope you will find at least one gem in among all the words.... Just Listen was the mother lode - packed full of gems.

    After the bloody confrontation in Appaloosa, Everett Hitch heads into the afternoon sun and ends up in Resolution, an Old West town so new the dust has yet to settle. It's the kind of town that doesn't have much in the way of commerce, except for a handful of saloons and some houses of ill repute.

    Overall

    Within the first few minutes of this audio book the author said, "He said" so many times it took away from the story line - My gosh it was irritating... it got to a point where I was turned off from the rest of the book - what a waste of money....
