    In an Istanbul hotel, a deep source warns a CIA agent that Iran intends to kill a CIA station chief. Quickly, John Wells is called in to investigate, but before he can get far, the tip comes true. Which means that the next warning the source gives will be taken very seriously indeed. And it’s a big one. We’ve put a package on a ship from Dubai to the United States. A radioactive one. A bomb? Not yet. It’s a test run.

    I hope there's going to be a part 2. It felt like the book just ended without a resolution.

    Haunted by the past, John Rain kills to order and leaves no trace, but the death at his hand of an old man has unforeseen complications - and soon Rain is trying to protect not just his carefully preserved anonymity but his own life and those of the people he cares for. A stunning, page-turning reinvention of the hitman thriller, Rain Fall marks the introduction of a compelling new series character and major new thriller writing career.

    Brian Nishii, the reader, really made this book. Don't get me wrong, the book was very good to begin with, but the narration was icing on the cake.

    In 2009, the CIA's Kabul Station fell for a source who promised to lead it to Bin Laden, but instead he blew himself up, taking the station's most senior officers with him. Now, more than two years later, the station is still floundering, agents are dying, and at Langley the CIA's chiefs wonder if the unthinkable has happened, if somehow the Taliban has infiltrated the station.

    Story

    Yet another book in the John Wells series. Very good, as are all Alex Berenson's books. George Guidall does a fantastic job narrating, as always.

    My only complaint is that the ending came too fast. When you get to the epilogue, there is still a lot of story left, but it feels like the author just decided to end the story. There really could have been a couple of more chapters to wrap things up nicely, instead of just dropping the story line.

    War rages in Midkemia once again, and behind the chaos, disquieting evidence points to dark elements at work. As enemies march across the realm wreaking destruction, its brave and loyal defenders battle to survive - a struggle made more perilous now that Jim Dasher's trusted intelligence network has been cleverly dismantled. Region by region, Midkemia is being ripped apart, and the loyal spy and his allies find themselves overpowered at every turn.

    Story

    Another good book by Raymond Feist. Had some plot inconsistencies that I didn't expect from Feist. First character X is doing something, then in the next chapter it talks about character Y doing it instead. Still a good continuance of the epic story started many many books ago.

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Another amazing book from Tom Clancy. After listening to this one, I'm wishing that the next one will be out soon -- I won't spoil it but there's a cliff-hanger at the end that's leaving me wisihing the next one was already out. Definately a must-"read"

    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    Andy says: "entertaining but not as good as kitchen conf."

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Jean says: "Dead Or Alive"
    "A must-read for all Clancy Fans"
    Overall

    Not as fast paced as some of the other Clancy books, but still a must-read for any Clancy fan. Don't let the narrator throw you, he's different, but he did an amazing job, and it added to the book.
