    Two years after the events of the Audiobook of the Year - The Chopin Manuscript - former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton and his Volunteers once again must crack a secretive conspiracy that not only threatens their lives, but the stability of the world. Their race against time will take them from London to the U.S. to Russia and beyond. And at the heart of it all is one question: What is the secret of the Copper Bracelet?

    Overall

    After three chapters I actually forgot what I was listening to. Usually, I do my workouts while listening to books and today I got half-way through the run while listening to this book and realized I wasn't listening. Pacing is poor and I think the different authors are trying to be too clever or at least confusing it with being complex. Go back and pick a classic like Buchan's "39 Steps" and skip this silliness.

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    Overall

    This book had its humorous and gripping passages, but they were folded into alot of empty space that it dragged the finale down. I had to get past Frank's breathy exclamation at the end of every sentence to begin to enjoy the book. Was enjoyable for the most part, but felt obligated to finish the second half. If you are trucking cross-country it's a worthy endeavor, but one author would have been adequate...
