    The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.

    Story

    Love all the books in this series, so far, except one by another narrator. George Guidall is a remarkable narrator (one of my absolute favorites!) and brings all the characters to life. The story line is actually very believable given the world that we currently live in - pretty scary! Fantastic listen!

    A Roman soldier, Marcellus, wins Christ's robe as a gambling prize. He then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene's robe, a quest that reaches to the very roots and heart of Christianity. Set against the vividly drawn background of ancient Rome, this is a timeless story of adventure, faith, and romance, a tale of spiritual longing and ultimate redemption.

    This is a story that captures the imagination and emotions of the listener! I was caught from the very beginning to the very last words. A most believable rendition of life during the time of Christ's death and the years following. I cried and cheered with the characters throughout the story and loved every minute! Thank you!

    Robert McCammon brings the hero of his previous novel, Matthew Corbett, to 18th-century New York, where a killer wields a bloody and terrifying power over a bustling city carving out its identity - and over Matthew's own uncertain destiny.

    The unsolved murder of a respected doctor has sent ripples of fear throughout a city teeming with life and noise and commerce. Who snuffed out the good man's life with the slash of a blade on a midnight street? The local printmaster has labeled the fiend "the Masker," adding fuel to a volatile mystery...

    Story

    I began to wonder if I had made a mistake at the start of the book, but had trouble putting it down about a third of the way through the story. Loved the historical aspect of the period. Will be listening to more books in this series!

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    Enjoyed this book very much, but found the story of Lt Dallas' working through her nightmares a bit tiresome in this book. I did like that Rourke took a more active role in the story/investigation this time. Overall, an enjoyable listen.

    Story

    What a wonderful story of life for Christians in the Roman empire during the century after Christ was crucified! The story line was a thought provoking insight into the life of Hadassah - a young Jewish slave girl. I cried for her and others during the hard times and rejoiced with them in times when God intervened to carry them down the paths they were to go during their lives. I thank God for the opportunity to live in a country where freedom of speech & religion are built into it's very foundation!

    Story

    What can I say - this was, hands down, one of my favorite series of books! It is rare to find a collection of Christian stories so captivating & thought provoking! I have read some of the other reviews & am surprised about some complaints of too much Christianity in the story! I did not find this to be so & was absolutely inspired by those parts in which the thoughts or discussions were centered on and around Christ. To think of the courage & conviction a person must have in a country where Christians are so severely persecuted is tough, to say the least! Made me so very thankful to live in a society whose core is built around freedom of religion & speech!

    Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets.

Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.

    I have listened to the first two books in this series and enjoyed the encounters tremendously! It's the first time I have ever listened to this genre of story, and was pleasantly surprised! I plan on getting the 3rd book of the series, as well. Hopefully, in the future, the author will write a book starring each of the male characters in the group (that is certainly more than 3!) Great Listen!

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    This was not one of my favorite books to listen to, but was fairly enjoyable. Very predictable in that, just as a situation would seem hopeless - the professor would magically get enough information to go on to the next clue! Pretty much unbelievable. I did enjoy the ending, though!
