    >The Longest Day is Cornelius Ryan’s unsurpassed account of D-day, a book that endures as a masterpiece of military history. In this compelling tale of courage and heroism, glory and tragedy, Ryan painstakingly re-creates the fateful hours that preceded and followed the massive invasion of Normandy to retell the story of an epic battle that would turn the tide against world fascism.

    Story
    (64)

    After a busted marriage kicks his drinking problem into overdrive and the LAPD unceremoniously dumps him, 35-year-old Jesse Stone's future looks bleak. So he's shocked when a small Massachusetts town called Paradise recruits him as police chief. He can't help wondering if this job is a genuine chance to start over, the kind of offer he can't refuse.Once on board, Jesse doesn't have to look for trouble in Paradise: it comes to him. For what is on the surface a quiet New England community quickly proves to be a crucible of political and moral corruption - replete with triple homicide, tight Boston mob ties, flamboyantly errant spouses, maddened militiamen, and a psychopath-about-town who has fixed his violent sights on the new lawman. Against all this, Jesse stands utterly alone, with no one to trust; even he and the woman he's seeing are like ships that pass in the night. He finds he must test his mettle and powers of command to emerge a local hero - or the deadest of dupes.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Nothing at all. I have read a number of the Jesse Stone books and have the videos. The movie is a bit different than the book. I liked the movie better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How SuitCase came to the rescue.


    What three words best describe Richard Masur’s performance?

    Overall very good however the audio quality was distractive.


    Could you see Night Passage being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It already has been made into a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    In the new thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of The Secret Servant, the death of a journalist leads Gabriel Allon to Russia, where he finds that, in terms of spy craft, even he has something to learn. He's playing by Moscow rules now.

    Lucie says: "Change of narrator"
    "Silva hits a winner again."
    Overall

    This is another great story. I always put Silva at the top of my reading list and this book was very good.

    Story

    Autumn 1942. Hitler's legions have swept across Europe; France has fallen; Churchill and the English stand isolated on their island. In North Africa, Rommel and his Panzers have routed the British Eighth Army and stand poised to overrun Egypt, Suez, and the oil fields of the Middle East.

    James says: "Killing Rommel"
    "Killing Rommel so a lack luster read."
    Overall

    Killing Rommel did not measure up to a number of WW2 stores that I have read. I was hoping for more. This book did not deliver.
