    Story

    Valerie Wilson, the object of the "Plame" CIA leak case that resulted in the conviction of the vice-president's chief of staff, Scooter Libby, has spoken publicly only twice since she was outed in July 2003. Now she tells not only the real story behind the leak, but describes her life at the CIA and what happened when her cover was blown.

    Leighboy says: "Interesting but for the bleeps"
    "Ruined by redactions"
    Overall

    Seems like a fascinating story. The frequent, annoying redaction tones ruin it. I made it to chapter 4, when I finally had enough.

    I hate to say it, cause I agree with Ms. Plame on the politics here, but this book is not listenable at all. 1 star.

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    "Enjoyable listen."
    Overall

    This book provides a fairly interesting treatment of the death penalty. Grisham develops the main characters fairly well, and the plot is interesting and compelling. Grisham books are always smooth and well crafted.

    I raced through the book, although a few parts seemed to drag just a bit. I think I have heard or read all of Grisham's books, and this one seems a little different. However, I still get each one as soon as it comes out, and I am never sorry that I spent my credits on Grisham. Thumbs up.
