    Story

    Jane Whitefield is a Native American guide who leads solitary outcasts through hostile territory to escape the vengeance of their enemies. But the shaded forest paths her Seneca ancestors might have followed on such missions have all been converted to superhighways, and now the safest way stations are crowded urban buildings that offer the camouflage of anonymity. Still, the supply of runaways - and the need for a woman who will take great risks to save them - have never been greater.

    Cathy says: "The Book - 4 Stars; Narration - 3 Stars"
    "A great begining to a new series"

    New York Times best-selling author Steve Berry returns with his latest thriller, a Cotton Malone adventure involving a flaw in the United States Constitution, a mystery about Abraham Lincoln, and a political issue that’s as explosive as it is timely - not only in Malone’s world, but in ours. September 1861: All is not as it seems. With these cryptic words, a shocking secret passed down from president to president comes to rest in the hands of Abraham Lincoln.

    Morrell says: "Painful and Confusing"
    "Another winning title in the Cotton Malone series"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook and the series


    What did you like best about this story?

    Steve Berry can take a premise that seems preposterous and make it sound very believable. He turns it into a good story with supporting characters that are fully developed. I really like the fact that when the story is finished, Berry reviews the story and tells what is factual and what is made up.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I've listened to most of Steve Berry's books and those have all been read by Brick. He can do 'smartass' really well, but is also serious when the storyline calls for that.


    If you could rename The Lincoln Myth, what would you call it?

    I can't think of a better name

    Cotton Malone and his 15-year-old son, Gary, are headed to Europe. As a favor to his former boss at the Justice Department, Malone agrees to escort a teenage fugitive back to England. But after he is greeted at gunpoint in London, both the fugitive and Gary disappear, and Malone learns that he’s stumbled into a high-stakes diplomatic showdown - an international incident fueled by geopolitical gamesmanship and shocking Tudor secrets.

    Carol says: "First Book Mr Berry fell flat on."
    "Another wonderfully researched thriller"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The King's Deception to be better than the print version?

    I typically don't read a title if I'm going to listen to it. The reader, Scott Brick, is excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The King's Deception?

    I'd really hate to give anything away! The whole premise of the story is very plausible.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Brick is a good reader for Cotton Malone, he does Malone's sarcasm very well


    Any additional comments?

    I really like the author's notes at the end which tell what parts of the book are accurate to history and what was made up. It really adds to the historical aspect.

  • The Modern Scholar: Dante and His Divine Comedy: The Modern Scholar

    Story
    (47)

    Kenyon College professor Dr. Timothy B. Shutt examines Dante's greatest work, The Divine Comedy, both in terms of its autobiographical elements and its allegorical meaning for the human race.

    John says: "A Tour de Force on a Tour de Force"
    "Lectures certainly, but entertaining as well"
    Overall

    I really enjoy the Modern Scholar series, and Dr Shutt's lectures (this and other topics) are educational and liberally sprinkled with wit. Dante's Divine Comedy comes to life as Shutt reaches into the minds of Dante and his contemporaries, tells us the story and some of what was going on at the time. Very enjoyable.
