    A bungled covert operation kills twenty-three people and leaves Decker shouldering the blame. Embittered, he retires… and meets a captivating woman named Beth Dwyer. Suddenly, Decker has the very thing he lived so long without: a beautiful, brilliant woman he passionately loves. But in a terrifying assault, Beth disappears - leaving an agonizing mystery in her wake. Is she still alive? Was she captured by Decker’s enemies or her own? Who is this woman he loved so completely, almost to the point of obsession? Did she love him, or use him?

    Love Morrell and have read nearly all his books. This one simply didn't seem up to par for Morrell. That said, it was still a decent listen.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Weird, strange, demented, warped. I enjoyed it even thought it did creep me out in spots. Not my normal read but who wants to be normal?

What they don’t know is that Meir was in New York to recruit Dewey Andreas for a secret operation.

    I think everyone addicted to audiobooks agrees that the narration can make or break a book. At least that's my call. Peter Hermann is amazing. He's German, Russian, American, Iranian, you name it. I am no linguist but I get the picture regardless of language. Coe provides the story, Hermann brings it to life.

    Can't wait for the next Coe. There has to be a #5, right?

    Jonah Miller is a Reviver, able to temporarily revive the dead so they can say goodbye to their loved ones - or tell the police who killed them. Jonah works in a department of forensics created specifically for Revivers, and he’s the best in the business. For every high-profile corpse pushing daisies, it’s Jonah’s job to find justice for them. But while reviving the victim of a brutal murder, he encounters a terrifying presence. Something is on the other side watching. Waiting.

    Once in a while this wandered a tad but as much as I enjoyed the book (spooky), hat's off to the narrator. It was a fun, creepy, piece of art. This is one of those books you take a chance on since few of your favorites are available. Good choice for me and if you're up for something out of left field, I say give it a try.

Years ago he saved her then senator husband from political disaster. And this may not be all that passed between them. With Michelle still battling her own demons, the two are pushed to the limit, with forces aligned on all sides against them.

    I'm hooked on King and Maxwell and although this was a little slow on the uptake for me, once it got going it was hard to re-charge. My two mandatory listen spots are working in the yard and in the car. As dirt covered and insect repellant drenched as I am when I come in, if the book is good I hate unloading my phone, Kleenex, etc., and especially my MP3. But with this one I found a way to shed all and continue listening. That for me ... is a dadburned good book!

As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America.

    I enjoyed the book but there were a couple of stretches. That however, is true of plenty of authors. I still enjoyed the book but the thing that caught my attention was Armand Schultz. He has a wonderful range. I was so caught up in the story until I realized how authentic he sounded. Never lost the story line but enjoyed it more once I realized what I was missing.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Harlan Coben is one of my favorites between serious to Myron Bolitar. I enjoyed it so much I had a time with the transition to my next book. But I imagine if you listen a great deal you'll know exactly what I mean. For me, this was one of those stories I wanted to go on and on.

    There was one factor that the terrorists didn’t take into account when they struck the Capitana oil platform off the coast of Colombia - slaughtering much of the crew and blowing up the platform - and that was the Capitana crew chief, Dewey Andreas. Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun....

    Sometimes time seems to stretch while waiting for favorite authors to publish the next book. So this gives us another character to follow which is great in my opinion.

    Buried within the black ops budgets of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created. Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of military insiders. Its job is to target Americas enemies - both foreign and domestic - under a charter of three simple words: Find, Fix, and Finish.

    The night after the fourth of July, Layton Carlson, Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, finally got lucky. And unlucky.

    He’d picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend, an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice, private, and quiet. The only problem was...something smelled bad - like, really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another. By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to 15 bodies and counting.

    Story

    The last several Sandford books I've read and listened to have been a disappointment to me. This one sounds like someone lit a fire under Sandford and it's the best I've heard from him in a while. I enjoy the Virgil Flowers books, some more than others of course but they just don't have the Davenport kick. Hope this lasts.

    Not the best Crais book I've listened to but I didn't put it down. Had to get into this one before I actually enjoyed it but still thought the ending was a bit of a let-down. First book I've read with the bomb focus and that part I found interesting.

    Enjoyable, not a bad book.
