    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was an interesting change to the tough guy, hero, type of cop story. This was a struggling. damaged, ordinary guy. He did nothing superhero. The real story here was not about finding the bad guys, which was done well. It was the story of the main character and the relationship between he and his dog. Neither of which wanted to be where they were when their relationship starts. They story provides an interesting twist when the narration becomes from the "first person" dog's view. I though some of that was a little repetitive, but a small criticism of a very good story done quite well.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

    Story
    What other book might you compare Kill Shot to and why?

    Night Fall by DeMille because it was a great story, held my interest through the entire book. Multiple interesting story lines that were relevant to each other without loosing the main story line. The narration was excellent.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr Guidall is a pleasure to listen to. He IS Mitch Rapp. When I listened to a different narrator read one of the Rapp series I was very disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy the Rapp stories. Unfortunately it is easy to see the formula for each book. Even so this story was great. It did not drift off to fill space. I have not enjoyed a book this much in quite a while. I have about 300 books in my audible library. This is is the top 10 to 15. Thank you !

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "Good--Not his best"
    Overall

    I have listened to all of Demille's books, and listen to many more narrations by Scott Brick just because I like his narration. I also enjoy the Cory character. However this book went on a little long without enough substance. I love the sarcastic wit but it became a little weak. Kate was a very weak caracter. I am using a very high standard to judge this book because I have come to expect the best from DeMille. With that said this was an enjoyable book. I am glad I listened, and I was looking forward to another John Cory story. This story just took a little luster off the John Cory legacy.

  • The Vanished Man: A Lincoln Rhyme Novel

    It begins at a prestigious music school in New York City. A killer flees the scene of a homicide and locks himself in a classroom. Within minutes, the police have him surrounded. When a scream rings out, followed by a gunshot, they break down the door. The room is empty.

    David says: "too much misdirection"
    "too much misdirection"
    Overall

    The theme to this novel was to teach the reader as much about magic as possible. This is necessary so Deaver can force feed unbelieable and excessive references to misdirections. I enjoyed most of the story but it got bogged down in misdirections about misdirections. The reader actually looses track of the story. I listened to Cold Moon and it also has many plot twists, however, it seem to stay focused on the storyline. I listened to the Vanished Man at the direction of a respected co-worked who liked the novel. I did not dislike it but I was let down due to the potential the story seemed to develope. If you enjoy an adult cartoon, this story is not too bad. If you like fiction but don't like your intellegence insulted, you might find this novel the vanished story.

    "Tremendous Storytelling"
    Overall

    It is hard to describe a story so well written and narration this tremendous. I was swallowed up and could not wait for each time that I slipped back into the tale. The narration was so amazing that I would like to listen to another book by this narrator to see if this story was just perfect for him or is he that good with any story. There were no extremes or excesses that are hard to believe. The caracters were real and their emotions were palpable. I am sorry it is over

    For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

    I have not given a 5 star rating since Angles & Deamons. I recently listened to The Ambler Warning which I thought was very good. Consent to Kill is better. Believable story line, great characters, and very well narrated. No weak ending or boring irrelevant secondary story lines.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I am a M.Connelly fan and have enjoyed the 4 or 5 priors books I have listened to. The narration of this book was well done. The Lincoln Lawyer however was almost two different books. The first half was a narration of court procedures 101. Boring. It was like the author wanted to impress me with the minutia of being a defense lawyer. I kept waiting for the mystery, the story, where was it? Finally it started to develope. The second half was a good story and enjoyable to follow. Unfortunately I don't want to listen to that much to get to the nut. I enjoy good character development but I need a reason to be interested in the character. I listen to 2 to 3 books a month, mostly mysteries, and this one is very close to the bottom.

    Cormac McCarthy, best-selling author of National Book Award winner All the Pretty Horses, delivers his first new novel in seven years. Written in muscular prose, No Country for Old Men is a powerful tale of the West that moves at a blistering pace.

    Alan says: "Great story!"
    "Great story poor ending"
    Overall

    The story was great and well developed. You are hooked from the begining. The narrator gave me a great feel of down home simple but honest wisdom. The author moved from character to character with carelessness leaving you wonder if you missed something. The ending however was the reason I could not give this book a better rating and a four might be a stretch. After a great story developement the author was only interested in the sheriff's personal history which was reflected on the unimagnitive disposition of the other characters.
