    Scott Wilkinson is a young advertising executive on his way to the top. Christopher Miller is an FBI legend who has been willing to do whatever it takes to see that justice is done. Two weeks before Christmas, Wilkinson goes on a business trip that will forever entangle their two lives. It starts like so many others. Wilkinson calls for a car service to take him to the airport. But the driver drives like a maniac, and Wilkinson feels fortunate to reach the airport alive. Then he makes a big mistake.

    Overall

    I totally enjoyed Slay Ride, by Chris Grabenstein. The narrator, Jeff Woodman, did a wonderful job as well, and although I am French, I really loved listening to his Russian words :)

    I would totally recommend this book to anyone looking for a good audiobook. It's only 8 hours long, for those listeners who don't like long stories, which of course wasn't long enough for me. I love a good 15-20+ hour long audiobook as I listen quite often in my car. Although some parts of the story have some graphic language and scenes, it all went with the story quite well.

    A+ to you both - I will definitely listen to more books written by Chris Grabenstein and narrated by Jeff Woodman!

    The president of the United States vanishes from the White House. A top-secret prototype stealth fighter is destroyed during a test flight. Witnesses on the ground say that it was shot down by a craft that immediately vanished at impossible speeds. All over the world, reports of UFOs are increasing at an alarming rate. And in a remote fossil dig in China dinosaur hunters have found something that is definitely not of this earth.

    In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission....

    Bram Stoker Award finalist Tananarive Due crafts chilling tales of suspense.

    In Joplin's Ghost, 24-year-old R&B phenomenon Phoenix Smalls is on the cusp of fame and fortune. But she is haunted by the spirit of Jazz legend Scott Joplin. After a series of sultry, erotic encounters with the ghost, and with the pressures of stardom closing in on her, Phoenix begins to fear for her life and career.

    Story
    Would you listen to Mystic River again? Why?

    Absolutely. I think this book was THE best book I've ever listened to! I first heard Scott Brick read The Passage (by Justin Cronin) and really enjoyed that, so his voice was familiar to me. I'd never "read" anything by Dennis Lehane but I had seen the movie Mystic River, a few times (it's also one of my favorite movies!) I'd NEVER really cared for Sean Penn until I saw him in this - he was fantastic!


    What other book might you compare Mystic River to and why?

    So far I have no comparison. I love most of Stephen King's work as well as the Jack Reacher Series by Lee Child, but Mystic River just took that top slot for me. Now I'm looking into reading other books by Dennis - I want to know if he writes as well in his other books, and if he does, I'll be totally thrilled!


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

    Yes. The Passage, by Justin Cronin. I think Scott is a fantastic reader. I think part of why I enjoyed listening to Mystic River was because I was already familiar with his voice and reading style.


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

    All I can say is I really "felt" it. If the story is good, the reader should "feel" it.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story!
