    Story
    (1929)

    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.

    Overall

    Nelson Demille hit a homerun with this title. Not only was the main character, John Correy, interesting but he was extremely likeable. I hated coming to the end of this book. You may want to read "Plum Island" first, because there are references made to it in regards to understanding interactions between some of the characters. Well worth your time. I can't wait for the next installment!

    In I Am Legend, a plague has decimated the world, and those unfortunate enough to survive are transformed into blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Robert Neville is the last living man on earth. Everyone else has become a vampire, and they are all hungry for Neville's blood. By day, he stalks the sleeping undead, by night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn.

    "Gripping and intense"
    Overall

    I usually don't write reviews, but I was completely gripped by the narrative of this audiobook. It was extremely well done, in my opinion. Not only was the story ahead of its time (1954), but the story also foreshadows an "epidemic", which seems increasingly likely in our lifetime. There were times that the narrator's voice made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Well done.

    Medicine Creek, Kansas, has been slowly dying for the last century. In a town where nothing changes, the community is terrified after a series of grisly murders takes place. Even more alarming, the bodies are displayed in bizarre tableaus. With the entire town in shock, FBI Agent Pendergast arrives from New Orleans to investigate. From the fields to the local caves, Pendergast discovers the remnants of a Prohibition-era moonshine operation and the truth behind one of the town's greatest mysteries.

    Venice says: "So Exciting! Like watching a film!"
    "Good story"
    Overall

    The narrator's vocalizations were very interesting. Story was very good. I don't know if it would make a good movie, but it was a very good audio book.

    In lower Manhattan, a charnel pit of horror is uncovered: the remains of 36 people murdered and gruesomely dismembered over 130 years ago by an unknown serial killer. Just as a museum archaeologist and an enigmatic FBI agent begin to unravel the clues to the killings, a fresh spree of copy-cat murders and surgical mutilation erupts around them. Mixing science and terror in a way only they can, Preston and Child deliver a novel that's as gruesome as it is enthralling.

    Dianna says: "This Book is a True Curiosity!!"
    "Good story"
    Overall

    Interesting story. The ending is kind of a letdown, but all in all, it was worth my time.

    Story
    (1088)

    A movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. In a seemingly unrelated case, a loner is murdered, leaving the sheriff's department with no clues. One unsettling revelation after another leaves a retired FBI agent and an L.A. detective thinking they've unmasked a most frightening killer with almost inconceivable calculation.

    Aaron says: "Terrific Pairing of Connelly's best Detectives."
    "What a waste"
    Overall

    This title seemed to be well recommended, but in the end, it was a big disapointment. The characters had little depth. Initially, it seemed promising, but it felt like you were listening to a reading of a Columbo episode that was 11 1/2 hours too long. The story really had no hook for the listener, and the reader didn't help anything either.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "Big letdown"
    Overall

    I was interested with the story because of all the hype. Characters are introduced with great promise, only to be forgotten or poorly written in the rest of the book. Don't waste your time.

    A new world order is taking shape. Only one man can stop it. Pray that he will succeed. The Prometheus Deception is classic Ludlum - a world of murderous wheels within wheels where nothing and no one are what they appear, and violence and sudden death lurk around every corner. Also available abridged.

    Lester says: "Not up to his standards"
    "Great to listen to!"
    Overall

    A very interesting book. Ludlum crafted an intricate story, with several twists and turns along the way. Definately worth the time.
