    Maria Isabella Boyd's success as a Confederate spy has made her too famous for further espionage work, and now her employment options are slim. Exiled, widowed, and on the brink of poverty, she reluctantly goes to work for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency in Chicago. Adding insult to injury, her first big assignment is commissioned by the Union Army. In short, a federally sponsored transport dirigible is being violently pursued across the Rockies, and Uncle Sam isn't pleased.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story, through the ending wasn't surprising, but it was fun and I like haven't an alternate world built around steamship (blimps) travel


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The story, fun, simple, straight forward


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dina Pearlman and Victor Bevine ?

    Yes, these narrators made the story, I listen to the first book with some difficult, and since Dina (much less Victor) only narrate this tale, I won't be going back to the other books, instead I will be looking for other stories narrated by Dina (and Victor)

  • Crossover: Cassandra Kresnov, Book 1

    Crossover is the first novel in a series which follows the adventures of Cassandra Kresnov, an artificial person, or android, created by the League, one side of an interstellar war against the more powerful, conservative Federation. Cassandra is an experimental design - more intelligent, more creative, and far more dangerous than any that have preceded her. But with her intellect come questions, and a moral awakening. She deserts the League and heads incognito into the space of her former enemy, the Federation, in search of a new life.

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

    Dina Pearlman is awesome as usual , I go looking for stories she narrates


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story, the technology, the vision of the future, and the characters (mostly). There was a guy early on who was basically racist (against Artificial life) so much that I got tired and wanted to quit to avoid listening to him. Plus the begetting of chapter 2 was so physically violent against a person, I started to reconsider the book (and this form a person who reads about vampire hunters and zombies) The rest of the story was fine , though interception and the intermixing of politics often slowed the story down to a crawl, disrupting the action. I will give the 2nd book a chance at some point.

    New York Times best-selling author Simon R. Green has crafted numerous acclaimed science-fiction and fantasy novels, including Blue Moon Rising, Blood and Honor, and Shadows Fall. In this first installment of the Ghost Finders series, JC Chance, Melody Chambers, and Happy Jack Palmer are agents of the Carnacki Institute - a place where the sole purpose is to “do something” about ghosts. But what exactly?

    A. Hogue says: "I LOVE Simon R Green. But...."

    What disappointed you about Ghost of a Chance?

    This felt like a draft of a story, other than a story, with a think plot and repeating dialog and actions
