    Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for. Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay and the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer.

    Where does Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very High


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales?

    SPOILER ALERT*** When we find out the lawyers allegedly going to die in a plane crash actually had turned the tables on those pursing them. I had thought only one of the two would have been the victim but not the other one.


    What about Joey Collins’s performance did you like?

    Steady good performance throughout and he changed his voice just enough for the different characters but not outlandish like some other narrators do.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good exciting tale without profanity and with a Christian element I like.

    Not far from Washington, D.C., in a wooded area of Northern Virginia, a small house at the end of a gravel road serves a secret purpose. With its sophisticated security apparatus and hidden miniaturized cameras, it is being used by the FBI to interview one of the most important witnesses the agency has ever had, a young woman with an incredible story to tell. But a few people know about the secret meeting. And for them, a violent drama is about to begin.

    The president knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel. Together, Robie and Reel's talents as assassins are unmatched. But there are some in power who don't trust the pair.

    What made the experience of listening to The Target the most enjoyable?

    I believe the narrators are ver good and tell the story very effectively. Sometimes narrators can influence a book negatively but these do the opposite.


    What other book might you compare The Target to and why?

    Too many to mention in the respect to rescuing persons in awful situations and eliminating truly evil people but in most the characters don't change. These do, Mitch Rapp did.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents of the characters and proper pronunciation of names, places, etc.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction but it educated me as to life in North Korea. That such evil empires still exist does not speak well to as to the human condition. We as humans are not improving. 2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.


    Any additional comments?

    The continual normalization of our characters into caring and concerned persons is gratifying. They are less and less content in being alone and isolated from others. No matter their job they now seek others to know and love.

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Would you listen to The Panther again? Why?

    Yes, It's a good story and I would like to listen starting with the first book through to the last.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Corey's sarcastic wit is always good just bordering on the too much. Corey and Kate carry out their mission together, they are separate personalities but come through for each other and the best part there was no obligatory kidnapping of the good guys.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scortt Brick always does a great job. I can never listen to him without thinking of the first book I heard him read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    When 14-year-old Mattie Sullivan asks Spenser to look into her mother’s murder, he’s not completely convinced by her claim that the police investigation four years ago was botched. Mattie is gruff, street-smart, and wise beyond her years, left to care for her younger siblings and an alcoholic grandmother in a dilapidated apartment in South Boston. But her need for closure and her determination to make things right hit Spenser where he lives - they’re the very characteristics he abides by.

    Would you try another book from Ace Atkins and/or Joe Mantegna?

    Joe Mantegna yes Ace Atkins no. I'm just tired of all the profanity that's a substitute for writing quality under the guise of being "reality".


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

    Good guys win and bad guys lose just like we expect in this type of book.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Mantegna???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's done many of the Spencer books and does a good job.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Author came close to Parker's Spencer.

But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark. A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced. As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes....

    What made the experience of listening to Kill Alex Cross the most enjoyable?

    The narrator makes or breaks a book. Most do a good job this narrator did. The story moves along also. Patterson doesn't have lag time. It's either about the case or cases or the family. This story has an ending but also a potential for more from one of the story lines.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were happy endings. The good guys win.


    What about Andre Braugher and Zach Grenier ???s performance did you like?

    They give good solid performances with proper pacing and understandibility.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't.

    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    What made the experience of listening to The Book Case the most enjoyable?

    This was nice short story. The bad guys were predictable but it was good to see Cory in action because it's been a while. Retrospectives on his police career are also nice. Scott Brick is one of the finest narrators in the trade and it makes the book that more enjoyable because of his narration.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I don't think one has the right to tinker with an author's work. Take it or leave it as it is.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have and I always enjoy him. One of the best in the business.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. But a chuckle every now and then.

  • Bad Luck and Trouble: A Jack Reacher Novel

    Story

    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.

    Patricia says: "Kept My Interest"
    "Political plugs unnecessary"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed the Jack Reacher stories up until this one. Though I did not read them in order and have not read/heard all of them (I have just 8 books) I have enjoyed Reacher vs. the world.
    I thought this would be another good story because Reacher was going to hook up with former comrades-in-arms to battle the bad guys. However, when the author wishes to interject his personal political views, in this book those being: anti-Christian, anti-hunting and pro PETA shout outs, then I must spend my money on other books.
