    Summoned under mysterious circumstances to meet Jake Lawrence, one of the world's richest entrepreneurs, Angela Day may be on the threshold of a brighter future. But accepting the reclusive billionaire's tempting deal means taking a great risk. For with enormous wealth and power comes the ultimate price tag: enemies everywhere have marked the man for death. And anyone close to him, namely Angela Day, is fair game.

    "Letdown after The Chairman"
    Overall

    I liked Stephen Frey since listening to the Chairman and Protege. I am half way through this book, but I am finding it hard to continue. The narrator does not help as she can't come close to the level of other Stephen Frey books. The old family Southern racial stereotype and the crusade against racism is getting old. You need to up your game Stephen and stick to strong narrators like Scott Brick.

    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    I was convinced I don't like fantasy novels until this one and I am a Neil Gaiman fan after this book. The narration was excellent and the story is just a delight to listen to.

    Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional "cleaner". Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies. But his latest assignment will change everything. The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up, and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silent, he knows he's in over his head. With only a handful of clues, Quinn struggles to find out why someone wants him dead.

    Bernie says: "excellent from start to finish"
    "Waste of time"
    Overall

    I am on the second half of the book and I can't help wonder why I am wasting my time on this one. What really is the point of this book?

    He is a good man, a brilliant corporate executive, an honest, handsome family man admired by men and desired by women. But a lifetime ago Ben Tyson was a lieutenant in Vietnam.There the men under his command committed a murderous atrocity -- and together swore never to tell the world what they had done. Now the press, army justice, and the events he tried to forget have caught up with Ben Tyson.

    Overall

    As a fan of Lion's Game, this book was a huge disappointment for me. I survived part one and wondered what the author accomplished for eight hours besides wasting my time. I didn't make it to part two.

    Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn. Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.

    Ronald says: "interesting topic - dull, boring, confusing book"
    "Waste of time"
    Overall

    As a Chrichton fan, this book was a total disappointment.

    Throughout the book, it does not even feel like listening to a novel. Sure, the author did a lot of research on gentics, but the result was a lot of anecdotes listed without any rationale or connection to the story. As for the story, I started wondering if there was any and then the author seems to remember about it half way through the book and tries to wrap up his list of stories on genetic research.

    In Killing Rain, Rain has a new employer, the Mossad, which needs an operator who can remove 'problems' in Asia, and a new partner: Dox, the ex-marine sniper and party animal first introduced in Rain Storm. He also has a new hope, that by using his fearsome talents in the service of something good, he might atone for all the lives he has already taken.

    Amazon Customer says: "I give this book my highest rating."
    "Need more Eisler titles"
    Overall

    Good listening material. I hope audible adds more titles from the author.
