    The mission began in 1989 Afghanistan, when a Russian platoon battled Afghan warriors—and raced to bury forever a devastating secret worth the greatest sacrifice. It could end apocalyptically, in the present, if a sinister evil escapes its sealed tomb…into the hands of one of the same men who fought to bury it. Intel suggests that’s exactly what's happening: A Ukrainian veteran of the ’89 Soviet-Afghan conflict, battle-scarred and cold-blooded, is now a wealthy businessman—with a sideline selling deadly hardware to the highest bidders.

    Story

    The narrators' accents were gratingly poor. The character 'Ice', a giant of a man, over 6'5" has this reedy unpleasant voice. 'Bishops' so called Australian accent was atrocious and I am not even Australian! Besides, he often sounded just like Ice. The narrator totally killed the book for me and i cant face any sequels if the narrator is the same, which is a pity as the concept of the story is interesting and action packed.

    Jenna James’ life has been smooth-sailing since she left the high-powered law firm of Marbury Marfan. She’s happily ensconced as a professor at a prestigious law school, where she’s well liked by her students, coupled up with a handsome colleague, and on track for tenure. But things take a shocking turn one morning when a student, Primo, comes to Jenna’s office seeking her advice about a treasure map he recently inherited. When Primo turns up dead and Jenna is suddenly the prime suspect in a murder investigation, everyone turns on her.

    Story

    It's not bad overall although i was unable to relate to Jenna. I did not find her likeable at all in this book. The overall story does not compare well to his previous book, Death on a High Floor. I found it to be somewhat tedious and repetitive. Also, as there was both a female and male narrator, i would have thought that Kate Rudd would have done the female voices and Christopher Lane the male voices, yet this was not the case. I did not enjoy Kate Rudd's' male renditions. Furthermore, I found the second part of the book boring and I struggled to complete it. But complete it I did, however if you prefer your whodunits with more excitement, give this one a miss.

    Jon Willing was just a teenager when he and his buddies Augie and Ben stole a fortune in drug money. Brazen with youth and stoned out of their gourds, they thought they had the perfect plan for getting away with it. They were wrong. Twenty-five years later, Jon’s marriage is in ruins, his kids are virtual strangers, and the recession has decimated his finances. When he finds Augie murdered in Vegas, Jon knows his past has risen from the grave to grab him by the throat. Now Jon Willing faces a choice: run to a paradise of wine and women and endless sunshine or confront the demons from his past and fight for what’s left of his imperfect suburban life.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Story

    I was unable to get past Chapter 2. The story has undertones of flippant humor that I found incongruous in light of the tragedy unfolding in the first couple of chapters. The pace is slow and left me with the impression that all the officials involved in landing the jet liner were incompetent fools. At that point i stopped listening...
