    There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska... and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go. The Duncans want Reacher gone - and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a secret shipment, and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy.

    Story

    I've listened to all of Lee Child's Jack Reacher books and enjoyed them. This one was awful. There were a myriad of one-dimensional bad guys who were impossible to keep straight. We learned nothing new about Reacher. It was flat, uninteresting and not particularly suspenseful. The Jack Reacher books are worthwhile -- just don't start with this one.

    Story

    This is the story of the rise to national power of a desperately poor young man from the Texas Hill Country. The Path to Power reveals in extraordinary detail the genesis of the almost superhuman drive, energy, and ambition that set LBJ apart. It follows him from the Hill Country to New Deal Washington, from his boyhood through the years of the Depression to his debut as Congressman, his heartbreaking defeat in his first race for the Senate, and his attainment, nonetheless, at age 31, of the national power for which he hungered.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    This is how political biography should be done.


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Perfect narration.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    I loved learning about the personality and character of LBJ. Astonishingly ruthless.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love American history, you'll love this audiobook. I'm now into volume 3 of this series. When I started it, I didn't think it would hold my attention, but it grabbed me immediately and I was surprised to discover what a cliff hanger it was! There were times I just could not stop listening to see how things would turn out.

    The sheer volume of research that went into this book is enough to give it five stars, but the riveting storytelling and perfect narration make it a rare gem.
