    Adam Austin hasn't spoken to his brother in years. When they were teenagers, their sister was abducted and murdered, and their devastated family never recovered. Now Adam keeps to himself, scraping by as a bail bondsman. Kent Austin is the beloved coach of the local high school football team, a religious man and hero in the community. After years of near misses, Just before playoffs begin, the town and the team are thrown into shock when horrifically, impossibly, another teenage girl is found murdered.

    Would you listen to The Prophet again? Why?

    My wife and I started this in the car, listened for a few hours and when we got home, put in on in the house and continued to the halfway point - gripping!


    Any additional comments?

    The writer does a great job with each scene - you feel that you are there.

    Adrian McKinty was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. He studied politics and philosophy at Oxford before moving to America in the early 1990s. Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction.

    What made the experience of listening to The Cold, Cold Ground the most enjoyable?

    I kept thinking about the storyline when I was not listening to the book, I could hear the narrator's voice in my mind and I tried to anticipate developments.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Don't want to spoil it for anyone.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This book will make a great film if they listen to the descriptions.

  • This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly

    Story
    (113)

    Throughout history, rich and poor countries alike have been lending, borrowing, crashing - and recovering -their way through an extraordinary range of financial crises. Each time, the experts have chimed, "this time is different" - claiming that the old rules of valuation no longer apply and that the new situation bears little similarity to past disasters. This book proves that premise wrong.

    D. Littman says: "necessary piece to understand the current crisis"
    "Does not work well as an audio book."
    Overall

    would like my money back.
