His company is flourishing, and his relationship with former government agent Daryl Haugen has intensifiedsince she became a part of his team. But the West is under its greatest threat yet. A revolutionary, invisible trojan that alters data without leaving a trace has been identified, roiling international politics.

    What did you like best about Trojan Horse? What did you like least?

    I'm a fan of Zmark Rossinovich because of his technical detail. He gets it right and it drives the story. I enjoyed his first novel more. This is truly the worst audio editing I've heard on Audible. You can hear quick 2-3 word cut-ins. Incredibly distracting from the story. Not sure what the producer was thinking. Hopefully Marks next book it produced better.


    What aspect of Johnny Heller’s performance would you have changed?

    I would have kept the vocal continuity throughout the recording. Very bad editing and overdubs.

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Where does Kill Decision rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd put it high on the list, but below Daemon and Freedom (TM). This is a great, although unrelated, follow-up book to that series. Looking forward to more from Daniel Suarez.

  • How to Be Black

    Beyond memoir, this guidebook offers practical advice on everything from "How to Be the Black Friend" to "How to Be the (Next) Black President" to "How to Celebrate Black History Month". This is a humorous, intelligent, and audacious guide that challenges and satirizes the so-called experts, purists, and racists who purport to speak for all black people. With honest storytelling and biting wit, Baratunde plots a path not just to blackness, but one open to anyone interested in simply "how to be".

    "Funny book about serious issues"

    Would you listen to How to Be Black again? Why?

    Baratunde does a great job covering serious topics in a way that's funny, yet informative and in a way that gets you thinking about things from an angle you may not have found on your own. Great social commentary.
