    Story

    Torn between the stirring example of his mother and the lurid romance of the bar, J.R. tried to forge a self somewhere in the center. But when it was time for J.R. to leave home, the bar became an increasingly seductive sanctuary, a place to return and regroup during his picaresque journeys. Time and again, the bar offered shelter from failure, rejection, heartbreak, and eventually from reality.

    Story

    This was very different from what I like to read/listen to - Mysteries and Thrillers - but I enjoy the story of a boy becoming a man. If anyone can recommend anything else like it let me know.

    Opening night at New York's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high profile, celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness - and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle.

    Liz says: "Another good Dallas"

    As always Audible does a great job with voices and accents, sometimes I think I get the next book just because I love to hear the Audible performance. But J.D. Robb is getting old with the same retelling of the same basic story line. Come on J. D. give me another character add something new!

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Judi says: "Disappointing and slow"
    "WELL DONE, MR. DEMILLE."

    Story

    Another story about John Corey fighting Al Qaeda, oh no; but this was an OH YES! I am a big Nelson DeMille fan but I didn't want another The Lion book and it wasn't. And as an added surprise - not a spoiler - Paul Brenner is back - from The General's Daughter and Up Country. A story with John, Kate and Paul how could you go wrong; Oh, and a few love to hate characters.
    Nelson DeMille did not disappoint me, I like an author who has more then one great character and this story has room for more stories to come.

    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    John Rain is back. And “the most charismatic assassin since James Bond” (San Francisco Chronicle) is up against his most formidable enemy yet: the nexus of political, military, media, and corporate factions known only as the Oligarchy. When legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, Rain can’t resist the offer: a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America. But the opposition on this job is going to be too much for even Rain to pull it off alone.

    Andrew Stone says: "Fast paced read..."
    "This is the Best John Rain, Yet !!"

    Story

    I have not read then all but so far this is my favorite. I liked the interaction between John and the other men of the team. The books were getting to much of the same but this one turn thing around for me.
    As always Audible makes it better, I loved all the voices, it adds 'color' to a great story.

    Alexander Lawson is a former detective for Northern Ireland's police force. After a disastrous six-month stint in the drug squad, he became addicted to heroin and resigned in disgrace. Now 24, sickly, and on the dole, Alex learns that his high-school love, Victoria Patawasti, has been murdered in America. Victoria's wealthy family sends Alex to Colorado to investigate the case, and he seizes the opportunity for a chance at redemption.

    Dawn says: "Gerard Doyle Is Terrific!"
    "Don't believe the other reviews....."
    Overall

    I like Adrian McKinty, I read his other books but was put off of this one because the reviews were not so good for this one but I LIKED IT. I enjoyed the flawed hero that redeams himself. I was very interested in his descriptions of life under 'catch'. Gerard Doyle made this story even more enjoyable with his accents, I loved the black cab driver.
