    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    "Wonderful story."
    Overall

    I love 20 hour books and this book does not disappoint. You get drawn in from the beginning, and stay to the end. My favorate character is the "villian", the book goes into his past helping you understand actions. After listening to well over 100 audio books I can say this ranks among the tops on my list.

    I only wish he would continue the story, I was left wanting to know what is going to happen afterwards... Telling any more and I'd spoil the ending :-)

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    I have listened to the entire Dresden series, and really enjoy the books. I read a review that compared the two series and I can see the strong similarities, if I had to say which is better I'd pick this one. The main character seems more well adjust and grown up then Dresden. While Dresden's attitude and smart-alack comments gives him his "charm", this main character seems sensible and down to earth and doesn't try to blow everything up. The plot did not have some of the deep twists and turns, it was still surprising and very enjoyable. The only think I do not like is the length, to me 8 hours is an abridged version. I prefer 10+ in a really good story, but I will purchase the rest of the series.

    Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante? The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction.

    Andrea D. Thomas says: "Loved It!"
    "Not the same old Alex Cross"
    Overall

    I have to agree with Sam to a certain extent, having Andre Braugher narrate make me feel like I'm in the middle of an episode of Homicide: Life on the Streets. I'm not sure what the reason is for changing narrators and hopefully this is not a permanent change, if so I may have to actually read any new Alex Cross books. The story was very enjoyable and left me wanting more. I have always enjoyed this series and cannot wait until the next one, hopefully I'll listen to it.

    Overall

    R.A. Salvatore is a master of his craft, he is the Stephen King fanstay writing. This book shows how he weaves a story around several characters each with their own interesting tale to bring it all together to form a great story. As a reader of Forgotten Realms books for over a decade this audio book was a joy to listen to and I hated to hear this story end. If you are a lover of fantasy books this is a must have in your collection.

    My only objection is that once you finish the book there are no more Salvatore books on Audible to listen to.
