    Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded - but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight.

    I have been waiting months for the next book in this series. As a rule I never get the abridged version because I want more story for my money, but this book would have been the perfect abridged version. The new aspects of the story would have fit nicely in a shorter format and the hours of inaccurate rehash could have been sent to the edit room recycle bin. I am not sure if Dick Hill read the story and refused to narrate it but I could not blame him. This one just did not do justice to the earlier books of the series.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    "Enjoyed the story."
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the plot and narration but was very disappointed when the book ended and I knew that there was another 7 hour chapter to listen to. The chapter that came labeled as part 5 was actually chapter 1. I had wondered through the story how some of the characters had developed but took it for granted that I wasn't supposed to know yet. If you want to hear the story in order, be sure to start with the chapter that begins with "who are you looking for" Of course on the bright side, listening this way is almost like having a "prequel". Two stories for the price of one.
