  • The Hitman's Guide to Housecleaning

    With some 66 hits under his belt, Tomislav Bokšic, or Toxic, has a flawless record as hitman for the Croatian mafia in New York. That is, until he kills the wrong guy and is forced to flee the States, leaving behind the life he knows and loves. Suddenly, he finds himself on a plane hurtling toward Reykjavik disguised as American televangelist Father Friendly. With no means of escape from this island devoid of gun shops, this country with absolutely no tradition for contract killing, he is forced to come to terms with his bloody past and reevaluate his future, to tragicomic effect.

    Story

    Unfortunately for me I kept expecting the same gripping suspense and detail as the Stieg Larsson novels...guess not all Nordic writers are that good.

    I listened to the whole book expecting something to happen and really get me interested, to no avail.

    The performance was the only part of this edition that was funny at times, ergo the 3 stars on that account. Wish the content had been...

    Don't bother with this one.

  • Bad Luck and Trouble: A Jack Reacher Novel

    Story

    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.

    Story

    I enjoyed the story up to the time when they make silly statements that are false altogether. A helicopter will autorotate safely to the ground (provided the pilot is competent and there are no other issues other than the engine quitting-regardless of why it quit) easier from a higher altitude than a lower one. Glide to drop ratio is about 1:3 (1 forward and 3 down), you have to keep rotor RPM up and for your best chance higher is better (gives you more time to make radio calls and select a suitable area for your landing site). Otherwise great story.

    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    Story

    I love the Oregon Files series and this was no exception, but PLEASE bring back Scott Brick.Nothing against Mr Culp but Juan Cabrillo's voice he is not.
    Fun story and enjoyable, as usual. Waiting for the next book (and please have Mr Brick do the reading).

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    I was looking forward to this book but it turned into a drag....kept waiting for the fun exciting part and it never came. And the narrator just made it worse... I was looking forward to the movie but after listening to this I am skipping the movie version.

    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.

    I enjoyed the story very much. Lou Diamond Phillips makes it even better. Excellent performance! John Clark rocks!
    I think there were a couple of loose threads here but maybe it was intentional, waiting for the next chapter.....
