    August 6, 1943: In his brief career in the Office of Strategic Services, 24-year-old Cletus Frade has already been involved in a lot of unusual situations, but nothing like the one he's in now, standing with a German lieutenant colonel named Wilhelm Frogger in a Mississippi prisoner-of-war detention facility.

    Kevin says: "I don't understand the negatives"
    "Superb story"
    Overall

    Fantastic story, based heavily on facts. Scott Brick does superb job with Spanish, German, British, and American accents.

    Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother - a singer “stolen” to Pyongyang - and an influential father who runs Long Tomorrows, a work camp for orphans. There the boy is given his first taste of power, picking which orphans eat first and which will be lent out for manual labor. Recognized for his loyalty and keen instincts, Jun Do comes to the attention of superiors in the state, rises in the ranks, and starts on a road from which there will be no return.

    Tesla Martin is drifting pleasantly through life, slinging lattes at Morningstar Mocha, enjoying the ebb and flow of caffeine-starved customers, devoted to her cadre of regulars. But none of the bottomless-cup crowd compares with Meredith, a charismatic force of nature who can coax intimate tales from even the shyest of Morningstar’s clientele.

    HibiscusSvg says: "Classic Megan Hart"
    "a poor excuse for writing"

    Story
    What would have made The Space Between Us better?

    That is was extreme porn page after page, poor character development, just raw sex, nothing really sensual or beautiful. what a waste. I actually chose it by accident as my book group was reading a book by the same title about an Indian woman in a lower caste whose husband was abuse, a book I am glad I missed.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something about the CIA or Code Talker


    What didn’t you like about Alexandra Wilde’s performance?

    average


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    irritation and disgust.

    C. J. Box has won a host of awards, including the Anthony, Macavity, Gumshoe, and Barry. In Plain Sight sees game warden Joe Pickett's life take a turn for the worse after millionaire Opal Scarlett goes missing. As Pickett discovers more and more disturbing truths, it becomes clear that someone wants the dogged game warden to keep his nose out of the investigation.

    Misty A. says: "Raw & Real"
    "gratuitous violence"
    Overall

    We put down this book after the first chapter for all the gratuitous violence and foul language denigrating women.
