    Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

    What made the experience of listening to Dead Eye the most enjoyable?

    I have been a long time Gray Man fan. This is the author's best work so far. The non stop action that keeps listener on edge of their seats and keep wanting more.


    Any additional comments?

    Jay had done a great job narrating. Hope he continues with future novels.

    Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terrorists worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world . . . and then tragedy struck.

    Great story with good character development and believable plot. Book is addicting, and difficult to stop listening after you started. It gets better and better in the series. America would be a different place without Rapp.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This is Harris final closure to the series and one would thought it would have at least a dramatic finally. However, the story line is so so and slow; plot is not well developed---too many loose ends.Felt like Harris just wanted to end without putting effort into it.


    What aspect of Johanna Parker’s performance would you have changed?

    JP performance of Sookie has always been awesome. I strongly believe JP performances is a big reason why many listeners are hooked on this series. It's the story line that makes this book so so, not JP's performance.


    Do you think Dead Ever After needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    A follow book would be nice as the plot contains many loose ends.
    A spin off on another series from the characters would also be welcome.

    Cotton Malone retired from the high-risk world of elite operatives to lead the life of a rare-book dealer. But his quiet existence is shattered when he receives an anonymous e-mail: "You have something I want. You're the only person on earth who knows where to find it. If I don't hear from you, you will be childless." His ex-wife confirms that their teenage son has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that those responsible will stop at nothing to get what they want: the lost library of Alexandria.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Alexandria Link?

    Too many to choose


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

    Scott Brick at his best.Very consistent and definitely makes the book.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Hope Scott Brick continues with other novels.Having been an audible book fan for years, I can definitely say the narrator is just as important as the book.When the two are congruent, the result is a masterpiece that can't be put down!Other narrators that I highly recommend that comes immediate to mind includes Peter Jay Fernandez and Johanna Parker.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.
