    It is summer 1943. Two of the Allies’ most important plans are at grave risk: Operation Overlord’s invasion of France and the Manhattan Project’s race to build the atomic bomb. A furious President Roosevelt turns to OSS spy chief Wild Bill Donovan — and Donovan turns to Dick Canidy and his teams behind enemy lines. They’ve certainly got their work cut out for them....

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

    No because it does not put the effort into context with WW II.


    Any additional comments?

    No. It is not up to previous books by same author.

    From the locked archives of the Vatican to the overgrown jungles of Ethiopia, an unlikely trio begins a deadly search for the Holy Grail. Two journalists and a beautiful photographer are traveling together in a broken down Jeep while covering the 1975 Ethiopian civil war. Both men fall in love with the woman and that complicates things. When the trio winds up lost in the jungle, in the no man's land between the fighting factions, they take cover and dig in for the night. In their hiding place, they encounter a dying man who tells them an amazing and quite unbelievable story. But for some reason - one that they grapple with for the rest of their journey - that night they believe.

    When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry, the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who's occasionally called Jack. While it's doubtful that anyone knows his actual name or anything at all about his true identity, or even if he's still alive, he's in his mid-30s and lives completely off the grid, a criminal's criminal who does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Once I got used to the switching of scenes, I enjoyed the climax, rather unsuspected on my part.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not well spent. Too difficult to relate one chapter to another.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I like Bernard Cornwell and Lee Childs.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was awful, too many poor attempts at British accents, few of which were relevant. No explanation of why a Welsh accent should pop up in the middle of Northumbrian and Southern accents


    Was A Game of Thrones worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I like fantasy as much as the next but I had trouble relating this to British history, clearly one of the attempts being made.
