    Manuela, the daughter of a wealthy couple from Bari, disappeared without trace months before and the police have closed their investigation, to the parents' despair. Counsellor Guerrieri reluctantly takes on an unusual assignment: to seek new evidence to force the police to reopen the case. A job more suitable to a private detective but a job that leads him to Nadia, a former client, a fascinating woman with an ambiguous past and to the tempting Caterina, Manuela's best friend, exquisitely too young for the jaded Guerrieri...

    YES, a must read for anyone with a creative bone in their body or anyone who even thinks they might have one, this is a landmark piece of work!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The War of Art?

Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

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

    No, I thought the story had it's moments and I did finish the book but I found the narrator's voice a bit annoying especially on the female characters. He was, however, technically professional with good pacing and sustained energy.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The technical descriptions of military hardware and weapons. Least interesting was the improbable thesis of the story, it stretched the imagination beyond good fiction.


    What three words best describe Nick Sullivan’s voice?

    Energetic, Weak, Nasal,


    Was Transfer of Power worth the listening time?

    No

    When Martina accuses her ex-boyfriend - the son of a powerful local judge - of assault and battery, no witnesses can be persuaded to testify on her behalf. Guido Guerrieri knows the case could bring his legal career to a premature and messy end, but he cannot resist the appeal of a hopeless cause. Nor can he deny his attraction to Sister Claudia, the young woman in charge of the shelter where Martina is living, who shares his love of martial arts and his virulent hatred of injustice.

    Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched: A warm breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye that vanishes when she turns her head. She has reason to be frightened. Her husband Daniel has inexplicably vanished, and the police have no leads in the case. Without proof of death or evidence of foul play, she can't access his bank accounts or his life insurance. Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin.

    A nine-year-old boy is found murdered at the bottom of a well near a popular beach resort in southern Italy. In what looks like a hopeless case for Guido Guerrieri, a Senegalese peddler is accused of the crime. Faced with small-town racism, Guido attempts to exploit the esoteric workings of the Italian courts. The voice of Sean Barrett brings this gritty Italian detective series to life.

    So far #1 Sean Barrett's narration was a work of art. His diction, pacing, pronunciations et al were wonderful.He did have a good story to work with but he made it sing for this listener. I very much enjoyed the descriptions of Italian jurisprudence and Sean's sophisticated manner, BRAVO!!


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

    Yes, the flash-backs were small stories of their own each with an intriguing soryline.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favorite?

    Without a doubt it was the protagonist, Guido Guerrieri.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did both but probably more of the former.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very sophisticated legal thriller with a thoroughly engageing main character, hope to hear Sean Barrett perform Guido in future books.

    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.
