    Theo Boone might only be 13, but he's already uncovered key evidence in a groundbreaking murder trial and discovered the truth behind his best friend's abduction. Now with the latest unfolding of events in Strattenburg, Theo will face his biggest challenge yet. Filled with the intrigue and page-turning suspense that made John Grisham a number-one international best seller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone's adventures will keep listeners enthralled until the very last minute.

  • 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

    In this riveting, accessible work of science, Charles Mann takes us on an enthralling journey of scientific exploration. We learn that the Indian development of modern corn was one of the most complex feats of genetic engineering ever performed. That the Great Plains are a third smaller today than they were in 1700 because the Indians who maintained them by burning died. And that the Amazon rain forest may be largely a human artifact.

    Where does 1491 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books I have every been exposed to about Native American History prior to the white invasion. It also explains why the Americas were so easily settled by Europeans and the role of infectious disease


    Any additional comments?

    Every one in the Americas should read this book and gain insight to the "transition" from Native Americans to European Settlement

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    What made the experience of listening to Lucifer's Hammer the most enjoyable?

    Interesting story line about what could or would happen to our society if comet or pieces of a comet were to hit our world. I bought this nine months ago and I am on my fifth listen. It was as good as I remember with fine characters and what would appear to be good science and a good read of politics and conflict.

    I am now in the process of searching out more books by these authors

    Spur Award-winner Craig Johnson has garnered critical acclaim for his Walt Longmire mysteries. In this riveting seventh entry, Wyoming’s Absaroka County sheriff, Walt Longmire, is pushed beyond his limits. When three hardened convicts escape FBI custody in a mountain blizzard, an armed psychopath leads them up Big Horn Mountain. As Longmire struggles to track their treacherous ascent, he’ll need all the help he can get from the tribal spirits of the towering summit.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hell Is Empty?

    Once Longmire leaves Virgil's cave, the line between the storm, the convicts, Native Americans and reality blur


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dead Or Not Dead? Are you sure?


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Longmire book, it will not be my last!
