I like Biographies about people from the back pages. Not much on Political Bios -- all the same to me with a few exceptions.

    Internationally best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith, creator of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency novels, offers the third installment from his popular Scotland Street series. The endearing denizens of 44 Scotland Street soldier on, both domestically and across the globe, in this entertaining mosaic that is filled with the author's trademark wit and charm.

    Lois says: "The Best 44 Scotland St. Book Yet"
    "Story is not as good as the 2 earlier books."

    MacKenzie performs all the characters flawlessly.

  • Factory Man: How One Furniture Maker Battled Offshoring, Stayed Local - and Helped Save an American Town

    With over $500 million a year in sales, the Bassett Furniture Company was once the world's biggest wood furniture manufacturer. But beginning in the 1980s, the Bassett company suffered from an influx of cheap Chinese furniture as the first waves of Asian competition hit, and ultimately was forced to send its production offshore to Asia. Only one man fought back. That man is John Bassett III, a descendant of the Bassetts who is now chairman of Vaughan-Bassett Furniture Co, which employs more than 700 Virginians and has sales of over $90 million.

    Author injects herself into story. Most of book is gossip on Bassett family. Not really a business book more like National Enquier.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"

    Story moves fast. Lead characters are rootable. Story line holds your interest.

    Hope it is a series with PI Strike.

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

  • Miracle at Merion: The Inspiring Story of Ben Hogan's Amazing Comeback and Victory at the 1950 U.S. Open

    Legendary sportswriter Red Smith characterized Ben Hogan’s comeback from a near-fatal automobile crash in February 1949 as “the most remarkable feat in the history of sports.” Now, more than 60 years later, that statement still rings true. The crowning moment of Hogan’s comeback was his astonishing victory in the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club near Philadelphia, where his battered legs could barely carry him on the 36-hole final day.

    Mr. 73 says: "Great stories but Narrator mispronounces names"

    What did you love best about Miracle at Merion?

    I learned a lot of facts I didn't know about golf. Period when OB was not stroke and distance. I read a lot of Golf books and found out info on Hogan, Demaret, Burke, Snead I did not know before. Must read if you like Golf history.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Allen’s performances?

    Richard Allen mispronounced Medinah, Inverness and Henry Picard's last name. Where was the "proof reader"? Need to know something about your subject and know names before you narrate.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    More than just Hogan and Merion and that is a good thing.


    Any additional comments?

    Well researched and an easy listen.
