    The Easter Rising of 1916 was a major turning point in Irish history. Peopled by patriots and poets, fueled by a desperate desire for freedom, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the background of World War I, the rebellion is a story of tremendous power and unique poignancy.

    Story

    This is a good way to get acquainted with Irish history. But don't stop here, listen to Greener Short and The Dublin Saga to get the backstory. I did go get the next book in the series when I finished this, too. The characters born in this book are memorable and worth following forward in time. Good narrator too.

    When do you do when you gaze into the mirror - and find a stranger looking back? Liz Sansborough has no recollection of her past as a CIA agent; no idea what her future holds. For her, there is only the present...and the chilling knowledge that the world's most lethal assassin has set his sights on her. When your only link to your identity is a stranger who claim to be lover? Gordon is so gentle, so loving - and so secretive. If Liz dares to put her life into his powerful hands, will he guard it with his own - or snuff it out?

    This and Book of Spies are both good ones. I liked Lynds in the Covert series, so I followed her to these and enjoyed the stories and the narration.

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    I'm a Clancy/Jack Ryan fan, and I thought this was pretty good. The voices were well done and the story's plotlines were suspenseful but easy enough to follow. A good listen.

    After the presidents' helicopter, Marine One, goes down in a brutal thunderstorm, the government blames the European manufacturer of the helicopter, accusing them of killing the president. Senate investigations and Justice Department accusations multiply as Mike Nolan, a Marine Corps reserve helicopter pilot and trial attorney in civilian life, is hired to defend the company from the criminal investigations and a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the most notorious lawyer in America.

    This is a pretty good thriller. Not classic, but enjoyable to listen and not a waste of time.
