    During James T. Kirk's heroic five year mission as captain of the Starship Enterprise, a mysterious alien threat called "The Totality" commenced its stealthy invasion, intending to conquer the Milky Way galaxy as it had conquered the Andromeda. Now the time for secrecy has passed, and a war unlike any other has begun, one that threatens to destroy the Federation, first by bringing warp travel to an end, and then by absorbing all living matter into an unknown realm.

    Overall

    I thought this would be an odd mixture with Kirk, Picard, and Janeway but it actually worked rather well. Unfortunately, I was not aware until I started listening that this is the third book in a trilogy. It's preceded by Captain's Peril and Captain's Blood (which oddly Audible does not have). Too bad Audible does not make this clear. Not having read the previous two books some things did not make as much sense (like how McCoy and Scotty got to the future), but the story appears to only loosely depend on the events in the other books.

    In the emotional aftermath of her baby's death, Em starts running. Soon she runs from her husband, to the airport, down to the Florida Gulf, and out to Vermillion Key, where her father has offered the use of a shack he has kept there for years. This is doing her all kinds of good, until one day she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering. Pickering also enjoys the privacy of Vermillion Key, but the young women he brings there suffer the consequences. Will Em be next?

    "Very generic story"
    Overall

    To me this story felt like a bad Dean Koontz rip-off. It was really just your typical "girl gets captured by crazy guy and has to escape" story. There was really nothing special about it. The only Stephen King about it was his name on it. It just did not feel like his work to me. Very disappointing.

    Off the Mangrove Coast collects for the first time nine stories, some out of print and unavailable anywhere else, from master storyteller, Louis L'Amour. Here are the vintage stories of men and women who dare what others will never attempt, who fight for justice and dreams when the odds are against them.

    Elaine says: "Like the action stories"
    "Terrible audio quality"
    Overall

    Unfortunately, I have to put strikes against what I think would otherwise be an excellent work. The audio quality was so poor that I couldn't listen to it. I'm uncertain if this is a problem with the digital transfer or the source recording. For some reason I didn't get cover art either! I downloaded the file twice to make sure that wasn't the problem.
