    Will Lee, the hero of the acclaimed New York Times best-sellers Run Before the Wind and Grassroots, has finally established himself at the heart of American government as the respected Senator from his home state of Georgia. The road to the White House, however, will be more treacherous and deadly than Will and his wife, Kate, an associate director in the Central Intelligence Agency, can imagine.

    Richard Delman says: "Kinda predictable Stuart Woods. There is a bonus."
    "Good Story, Irritating Performance"

    Story

    I've enjoyed the entire Will Lee series and was looking forward to listening to The Run during a long trip. Unfortunately, I found Ken Howard's vocal choices so irritating as to ruin the book. His habit of ending sentences with a downward inflection and volume decreasing to a near-whisper with flattened vocal tones made the characters sound like demented serpents. I'm sure that Ken Howard is a lovely person with many credits to his name, but he lost me on this performance. I'll read the rest of The Run to find out what happens.

    He crept forward between the tall narrow aisles created by the shelves. Just before he reached the corner he heard a thump, the sound of a body hitting the floor. He rushed forward into the corner of the room. The desk was empty. The chair was pushed up against it, neatly awaiting its usual occupant. No one was in the corner. No one was there to make the sound. No one...alive.

    Story

    The Mary O'Reilly series is fun, and I'd hoped the audiobooks would be perfect for road trip listening. But I'm abandoning that hope and will finish Book 3 in Kindle edition. I'm sure Erin Spencer is a perfectly nice person, but her narration is unbearable. Her use of glottal fry ("croaky throat") to signal a male voice, coupled with her habit of pausing for several beats before adding "s/he said" after each sentence of dialogue has finally become too distracting; Mary & Bradley will have to carry on without me listening.
