    Behind the well-known U.S. security organizations - the FBI and CIA among them - lies a heavily guarded, anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance and to a highly specialized brand of citizen protection. Shock waves of alarm ripple through the clandestine agency when Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned, ruthless “lifter” hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary.

    Ramon says: "Thrilling book with reasonable narrator"
    "Plodding and Predictable"
    Overall

    I kept listening, only because I kept hoping something would happen that would surprise me. No suspense for me - the plot was very predictable. It took me a month to get through the listen and I only made it through because the narrator was fairly good.

    Blockbuster author Lisa Scottoline returns to the Rosato & Associates law firm with Betrayed, and maverick lawyer Judy Carrier takes the lead in a case that's more personal than ever. Judy has always championed the underdog, so when Iris, the housekeeper and best friend of Judy's beloved Aunt Barb, is found dead of an apparent heart attack, Judy begins to suspect foul play. The circumstances of the death leave Judy with more questions than answers, and never before has murder struck so close to home.

    Worst narration. Book is very good, but the narrating by Maria Bello is horrible. Almost no emotion and many times felt like she was "talking down to the listener".

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

    Story

    How I have missed the days with the Russian/Soviet characters in spy novels. This book kept me thoroughly entertained and was reminiscent of a great Robert Ludlum book. Russian spies are so much more interesting than the middle eastern bad guys in most current books. Recommend this book highly, wishing the author had another book on Audible!

    No names. No Feds. No trace evidence. That's how Jonathan Grave operates. As a freelance specialist in covert rescues, he has to work outside the law to get things done - especially in highly sensitive hostage situations. But when an Indiana college student is abducted, and Jonathan's meticulous plan explodes into a deadly shooting spree, the local authorities are out for blood - and they're not alone. Someone wants to control a devastating secret...Someone rich and powerful.

    Would you try another book from John Gilstrap and/or Jeremy Gage?

    The plot was a good one and the story was interesting, however the writing lacked some element to make the story flow smoothly. I was interested enough in the story to keep listening, but found myself bored with what seemed like never ending repetitiveness that served no purpose but to lengthen the book.

    For once, I thought an abridged version might have been a better choice. I'll probably try another book from John Gilstrap as I like the characters.

    At first, they look like suicides. Two bodies within a week - one found floating in New York's East River, another electrocuted in the bathtub. But forensics show that the victims were drugged, then killed. As the death toll grows, so does the brutality of the murders - and the killer dubbed the Flesh Collector continues to prey.

    This book held my interest non stop, the characters are well defined and drawn. The story moves quickly, never a rehashing of the details. From start to finish held my attention. While I had suspicions that I knew who the villain was about half way through, there was still enough doubt to keep me guessing.

    I definitely will be listening to more work from Alafair Burke!

    Deeper Than the Dead introduced Tami Hoag's millions of fans to Oak Knoll, a small California town that, in the mid-eighties, seemed as idyllic as any . . . until the See-No-Evil killer shattered that notion. It took FBI agent Vince Leone and a new technique called profiling" to put an end to the trauma. Now Hoag returns once more to Oak Knoll for the third installment of this best-selling series.

    What disappointed you about Down the Darkest Road?

    No Vince Leone and two much of the main character thinking not action. No comic relief with a character like Frannie from the previous novels and no suspense.

    From the best-selling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes an emotionally powerful novel about a split-second choice, agonizing consequences, and the need for justice. Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in her daughter Melly’s school in order to keep an eye on Amanda, a mean girl who’s been bullying her daughter. In the aftermath of a massive explosion, Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to rescue Melly or usher Amanda to safety.

    C. Byrnes says: "The Protagonist Was Shallow and Unbelievable"
    "Not what I expected from Scottoline"
    Overall

    I expected the fast pace and likable characters I have grown accustomed to in Lisa Scottoline's novels. While the storyline was interesting, I never really cared much about any of the characters.

    Wounded in the line of duty, NYPD homicide cop John Corey is convalescing in rural eastern Long Island when an attractive young couple he knows is found shot to death on the family patio. The victims were biologists at Plum Island, a research site rumored to be an incubator for germ warfare. Suddenly, a local double murder takes on shattering global implications - and thrusts Corey and two extraordinary women into a dangerous search for the secret of Plum Island....

    DERALD says: "Great on par with" LION'S GAME""
    "One of my all time favorites"
    Overall

    I first listened to this book years ago and it was my first Nelson Demille novel. Since then I have been a huge fan and absolutely love listening to the beginning of the John Corey series over and over again. John Corey is a character you have to love and Scott Brick does a brilliant job bringing him to life. I originally bought this book on CD and was very excited to see it added to the Audible library so that I can listen without lugging around the CDs.
