    In this tense, riveting mind game, New York Times bestselling novelist Nelson DeMille delivers a suspenseful short story in the tradition of his classic military novels The General's Daughter and Word of Honor. A band of soldiers in its last month of service in Vietnam goes out on a patrol through enemy territory with a female sniper in its path. Recounting the mission in shattering and sometimes gruesome detail, DeMille creates a concise masterpiece of moody suspense.

    What did you love best about In Concert?

    The variety of stories makes this an interesting listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In Concert?

    The story titles "The Icy Region My Heart Encircles," which is about an Mary Shelley, the creator of Frankenstein. I love it when an author takes character's from other works of fiction and extends their lives and plays with that character creating something new.


    What three words best describe Abby Elvidge’s voice?

    Abby has variety however she can be a bit slow at times.

    Four friends, recent college graduates, caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy they devise - quick, efficient, low risk - works like a charm. Until they kidnap the wrong man. Now two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are after them - the law, in the form of veteran state investigator Kirk Stevens and hotshot young FBI agent Carla Windermere, and an organized-crime outfit looking for payback.

    Richard Delman says: "A thrilling new voice in thrillers"
    "Grapes you straight away for a fast paced ride."

    Great story and the author makes you care for the characters. I wanted them to get away with it. The detectives felt new and fresh.
