    Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her - her identity, her spirit, her will to live - pay. Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: Every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at 17 years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

    Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life.

    Story

    This novel exemplified the reality that when tragedy intrudes into a person's life, there is sometimes a need to dig themselves back to a normalcy that they are able to accept.

    This novel concerns the lives of two young people, a girl and a boy. Both are fast approaching the age of 18. They both feel detached from those around them, especially while in school. But these same two young people meet while in high-school. This leads them both to a hard fought reality that the world and themselves do have hope. Although their lives have been irretrievably changed they do find their way back. Struggles lay ahead, especially for the girl, who found the need to change her name, thus causing her to lose her own identity.

    This anomaly occurs in the lives of the people around us as well as to some of the people who are listening to this novel. Purchase this book and gain an understanding that some people do struggle to live and interact with others again. There will be adjustments to be made but listen to know if laughter can again become a part of their lives.

    This raw and vivid portrait of juvenile detention centers and life on the run catapults John Gilstrap to the forefront of the crime thriller genre. Nathan Bailey is a 12-year-old juvenile-hall orphan with a problem. Covered in blood, he is caught on videotape fleeing from a murder scene. Will the boy evade the police long enough to tell the truth? Or will a hit man kill him before he gets the chance?

    Story

    Nathan Bailey came to live with his Uncle Mark when he was 10 years old. His dad had been killed in a traffic accident. There were no other living relatives.

    Nathan and his Uncle Mark did not like one another. His Uncle Mark was an alcoholic who was physically and mentally abusive to Nathan.

    Nathan stole Mark's car in an attempt to run away. He was caught and ended up in the Juvenile Detention Center for 18 months. Uncle Mark figured that the time served would do Nathan good. He needed to learn the hard way. It may just correct his insolent behavior.

    Mark was trying to make a fast buck. However, he was dealing with the mob and made some very stupid decisions.

    Mark was to be paid a significant amount of money to kill Nathan. Instead of completing the job himself, he asked a guard to kill Nathan and when done, Mark would give him a substantial amount of money. The guard, feared by all of the kids, requested that Nathan come to the crisis room. Nathan feared for his life. Nathan was the smallest boy at the JDC and had been bullied from day one. His initiation was to have a broomstick shoved up his rectum over and over by the other boy's. He reported this incident to the same guard and was ignored. He continued to be bullied but never complained again.

    Nathan arrived at the crisis room knowing he would be severely harmed or maybe even killed. Sure enough, the guard, drunk as usual, was waiting with the knife.

    Nathan was a wiry kid and and smelling the guard's breath, knew he was drunk Nathan defended himself and was able to get the knife. Nathan stabbed the guard and didn't know what to do. He pulled the knife out and caused the wound to bleed more. He killed the guard with the knife that was supposed to kill him.

    He took the keys from the guard, barefooted, dressed in the orange suit of the JDC, hanging below his ankles and ran like hell, unlocking doors as he went.

    The next shift arrived and found the guard dead in the crisis room.

    I read this book all in one sitting. The book caught my interest from page one. The narrator did a great job with each of the individual character's. The book was filled with suspense and kept me on the edge of my seat. There are characters that I would have liked to have gotten my hands on. The one character was taken care of by Nathan. It's a catch 22, kill or be killed. I would encourage others to listen to, Nathan's Run. I'm so glad I was able to raise my own children. However, there are still are good people in this world. There are some edgy scenes laced throughout the book. I don't think that you'll regret purchasing this book.

    Viet Nam may be the only war we ever fought, or perhaps that was ever fought, in which the heroism of the American soldier was accompanied by humanitarianism unmatched in the annals of warfare. And the humanitarianism took place during the heat of the battle. The GI fixed as he fought, he cured and educated and built in the middle of the battle. He truly cared for, and about, those people. What other Army has ever done that? Humanitarianism was America's great victory in Viet Nam.

    Story

    Charles Kelly was the man who initiated what was known as, Dust Off. The men of the 54th who flew helicopters under the auspices of Charles Kelly, were taught how to make rescue missions that no other unit ever made. Dust Off was called to fly many a mission that other units would not fly.Kelly also started having his pilots fly at night. The men of the 54th were true warriors with courage. Kelly was killed in Vietnam while flying a rescue mission. Brady continued with Dust Off and they became the best helicopter pilots in Vietnam to fly rescue missions.

    Brady was a religious man and while in Vietnam, he did not lose his faith. Brady said a prayer before, during and after each mission. He would fly with his friend Garrett, who was an atheist and was always always razing Brady. This occurred quite often. However, when he was transferred, he did ask Brady if he would give him the bible he carried. Brady heard later that he had been killed while flying a mission.

    There was not a mission that Brady would not fly. The pilots would fly dark most of the time when they flew at night. Kelly initiated the use of flares to help to guide him in to land. He requested that the LZ be prepared and to have one man standing. Brady was always aware of the terrain around him. When attempting to land, he would always find a way to get in and land. He would land while the area was hot. There was many a time that his plane would be shot at while landing at the rescue site or taking off from the landing site. Getting the injured out was his only priority. He would get out of the helicopter and help the grunts put the injured and at times the dead, to take out. There was also a rule that many of the men were not too happy about. The pilots were to pick up all of the injured, North Vietnames, South Vietnamese, men, women, children and even dogs, if necessary.

    The weather was never a problem that Brady avoided. He would fly with his head out of the window most of the time checking out the terrain that was so crucial to a successful landing. The NV could hear all of the American's communications. The pilots would ask a grunt to throw red smoke and then just as quickly change the color. The SV had colored smoke bombs, too. Therefore, this action helped to prevent ambushes.

    The 54th Dust Off pilots always flew with them a medical corp man to decrease the amount of deaths. Brady and the other pilots knew that the first hour was the most critical time in order to save the injured.

    Brady and Kelly both entered the Army as grunts. They believed that knowing what the grunts were subject to when fighting, allowed them to grasp the full understanding just how important it was to get to the injured as quickly as possible.

    The 54th Dust Off pilots mantra was, go for the patient first, Dead men were Angels. There was also the operational duty that the dead men be removed and flown back. There were to be no excuses, caring is the mother of Dust Off.

    I encountered a problem with this memoir, there was an overload of statistics. The author could have chosen the most important statistics. However, there were so many that I suppose he considered them all important. That is why I only gave the book 3 stars.

    The narrator, Jeremy Arthur, was okay. However, I believe having to read so many numbers may have interfered with his ability to read with excitement, sadness or very much emotion at all.

    I do think that the Dust Off pilots have a place in history. The men definitely were heroes and exhibited quite a bit of courage. The Dust Off of the 54th lost more pilots than any other division.

    Patrick Brady left Vietnam after his first tour in Vietnam without good evaluations. One of the strikes placed against him by a CO was his loyalty to the US. He had planned on making the army his career and now he wasn't too sure if he would be able to do that. However, he did receive the Medal of Honor and when he retired he was a General. I'd have to say that his CO was most assuredly wrong when he wrote his evaluation.

    Gene Wentz's Men in Green Faces is the classic novel of Vietnam that inspired a generation of SEALs. Here is the story of a good soldier trained to be part of an elite team of warriors - and of the killing grounds where he was forever changed. Gene Michaels carries an M-60, 800 rounds, and a Bible. The ultimate SEAL, he also carries a murderous grudge against a bloodthirsty colonel who was once one of their own.

    Story

    The SEALs were fighting in Vietnam and before leaving on any mission, they smeared their faces with a green paste so that they could blend in with the foliage around them. There were two groups of SEALs which consisted of 7 members each. These men were fighting in the Mekong Delta.

    This book told the story of one of those group of 7. There is a Vietnamese SEAL that had turned and betrayed the SEALs. He became the leader of a large group of the enemy who were consistently killing American soldier's. It became the mission of Gene, a member of the SEALs, to find Colonel Win and destroy him.

    My favorite character was Doc. He was the only corp man available but he had not completed the full regimen to become a SEAL. Doc had not never gone through HELL week. The men went on many missions and Doc was always the last man in the line. He complained and cursed every time that he was included in a mission. He would always end each tirade saying, "I'm not even a SEAL.

    Brian was short, 5'3" and was perfect as the front man. The other SEALs were always told to follow Brian. He would find a way to maneuver through the jungles of Vietnam with a skill
    that no other man would challenge. At times, Brian would stop them, using a hand signal, arm extended straight up, with a fist, stop, look, listen, and he would go ahead, find an exit and lead them through. The men all used and knew the hand signals, therefore, there was no noise.

    Jim would usually be the platoon leader and Gene would follow behind him. Gene was considered to be their lucky charm. Each battle that Gene was in and the men that went with him, were not killed. Gene would tuck his bible in his shirt pocket before he left on a mission. The other members were Roland, Alex and Cruise. The SEALs all carried a pill that was to be swallowed if there was a chance of capture.

    The book was filled with lots of action and suspense. The battles were described so well that you would be able to envision the battle through the author's words. The character's were well developed. The book definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. The narrator, Jeff Gurner, did an excellent job. He made the book an easy listen. If you enjoy reading about Vietnam and the SEALs participation, with only 7 men against many, purchase, Men in Green Faces, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Fiona Maye is a High Court judge in London presiding over cases in family court. She is fiercely intelligent, well respected, and deeply immersed in the nuances of her particular field of law. Often the outcome of a case seems simple from the outside, the course of action to ensure a child's welfare obvious. But the law requires more rigor than mere pragmatism, and Fiona is expert in considering the sensitivities of culture and religion when handing down her verdicts.

    Story

    Adam is 17 and only 3 months away from his 18th birthday. Once 18, he can make his own decisions, without the interference of other parties.

    Adam was diagnosed with Leukemia and belonged to the religious entity, Jehovah's Witness. The faith does not allow blood transfusions. However, Adam had received the treatments given for Leukemia and now he needed to have a blood transfusion to restore his body with the normal amount of red blood cells, which contain many of the elemental requirements for life. Among other things, the red blood cells contain oxygen, the chemical needed for breathing. Adam has started to exhibit signs of labored breathing, one of the first signs of insufficient red blood cells.

    The blood transfusion would give Adam an 80 to 90 percent chance for remission to occur. However, without the blood transfusion, Adam has only a minimal chance to survive.

    Jehovah's Witness believe that blood is a part of the soul which is the essence of life. Mixing someone else's blood with Adam's blood would cause contamination and pollute his soul.

    The parent's decision, as well as Adam's decision, not to receive the needed blood transfusion was hastily brought to the court's attention. The case was given to Judge Fiona to make a judgment as to whether Johnathan, age 17. almost 18, was equipped with the full understanding of what it meant to his own life or death.

    The book kept me reading until it was finished. I will say that it was a short listen but also a good book that I wanted to finish. The book kept me on the edge of my seat. I would encourage other's to purchase this book. The plot was well established. The character's were well developed. The book was intense but provided enough interest to say that I'm glad I chose the book.

    His name is Roger Dickinson who has been preparing to return to England after a fishing trip to France.

    WW11 was on the verge of rearing its ugly head and Roger left France with three children in tow, Ronald, Sheila and Rose. His objective was to get these children back to England and safety.

    What an enjoyable read. Nevil Shute has been gifted with the ability to write such meaningful stories that keep the reader interested and unable to stop until reaching the end.

    The story keeps the reader on the edge of his seat, wanting to hear more. There is action and intrigue. Roger is definitely a man who can get himself into a bind but who can also come out on the other side making the impossible, possible. The narrator, David Rintoul, was excellent. He adds excitement when telling the story. I would suggest this book and any of the many other books written by Nevil Shute. I've read quite a few and haven't found any I haven't enjoyed. He is the quintessential of what a writer can do with words. Purchase this book, sit back and enjoy. Shute's the man.

    I've read many books where dogs are the central character. Seeing this book, inspired my interest because of the face of a beautiful dog on the cover. Once again, I was not disappointed.

    Dan and Lindsay were the husband and daughter of Christine. She had died within the past year and they both missed her very much. Lindsay was 17 and in her last year of high school. Dan was 40 and worked for a micro-beer corporation. And then there was Anni, their 8 year old mixed breed dog who had been stolen. Lindsay saw her abduction happening but had no useful information that helped to find her.

    The story involved many character's. The characters were well developed and worked into the plot of the book very well. Anni, the dog, was my favorite character. She stole my heart and understood how her family felt lost without her. Anni's love of people was known by everyone who entered her life. Dan and Lindsay hoped that whoever had taken Anni, loved her as much as they had.

    The book was short and I was able to finish it the day that I started it. The personalities of the character's were well developed. The narrator, Dan John Miller, did a great job with male and female voices as well as their emotions. I would encourage others to listen to this book, especially if they are in need of a hug. The ability of a dog to inspire love was definitely seen. The book was an enjoyable and easy listen. Put your feet up, lean back and enjoy.

    Award-winning author William Kent Krueger has gained an immense fan base for his Cork O’Connor series. In Ordinary Grace, Krueger looks back to 1961 to tell the story of Frank Drum, a boy on the cusp of manhood. A typical 13-year-old with a strong, loving family, Frank is devastated when a tragedy forces him to face the unthinkable - and to take on a maturity beyond his years.

    The coming of age can certainly make a boy of 13 grow up fast. Frank Drum was that boy. He definitely has a story to tell.

    There are many participant's in this story and each of them have their own story to tell. These character's are very well developed. The reader will come to know each one as an individual. Listen closely because each one of them are important in contributing to the coming of age of Frank Drum.

    I definitely encourage other's to purchase this book. The plot is very well developed. The characters are interesting people and the author, William Kent Krueger, wrote about them so that the listener will want to continue reading to the very last page. The narrator, Rich Orlow, is excellent. He makes the character's come alive. He makes listening to, Ordinary Grace, a pleasure and an easy listen.

    The mystery of who committed the murders that summer in Breman, a small town where everyone knows everyone else, is difficult to understand. Why would anyone want to end the life of another?

    Always remember that the dead are never far from us, just one single breath will take us to them.

    Rattler One-Seven puts you in the helicopter seat, to see the war in Vietnam through the eyes of an inexperienced pilot as he transforms himself into a seasoned combat veteran. Soon after the war, Gross wrote down his adventures, while his memory was still fresh with the events. Rattler One-Seven (his call sign) is written as he experienced it, using these notes along with letters written home to accurately preserve the mindset he had while in Vietnam.

    Story

    Chuck Gross finished high school and had no plans of what he wanted to do with his life. His dad had died when Chuck was at a young age and his mom suggested the service. There, Chuck could learn a trade and go to college under the GI Bill.

    Chuck joined the Army to learn how to fly helicopters in Vietnam. He left for Vietnam on May 15, 1970 for a one year deployment. Chuck might not know what the day of the week it was but he always knew how many more days he had left until he would leave Vietnam.

    Chuck learned early not to fly his helicopter sitting high in his seat by a fellow flyer who went up with him in the first few helicopter rides in his early days in country. Chuck liked flying high because it gave him a better look of what was in front of him. The co-pilot explained how the enemy would be able to see him so well that he made a great target. Therefore, Chuck learned how to fly low in his chopper. Believe it or not, if he had flown high that very day, it would have been Chuck's last day.

    Air assaults by helicopter were used for the first time in Vietnam. Helicopter pilot's were given orders to locate, search and destroy. Helicopter pilot's would also do insertions to get people out who were in trouble. When Chuck was called to fly, his favorite co-pilot and sometimes pilot, was Kent Garrett.

    One of the troublesome memories of the Vietnam war for Chuck Gross were the MIA's who were left behind. The missing in action families would never be able to have closure for their son's. President Nixon realized the conflict in Vietnam was a war that could have gone bad.

    President Nixon's plan was called Vietnamization. The American's would pull out and the North Vietnamese would take over. North Vietnam fell to the Communist's, April 30, 1975. The number of American's killed was 58,169 and the mean age of those killed was 21.23 years old.

    Story

    There was a family of five, Dan and Maddy with three children, Caleb, Emma and Gracie. Dan was a person who would become volatile without warning. Maddy was the peace keeper, trying to be calm and trying at the same time to assert hersef for the sake of the children.

    Maddy was a social worker and Dan was the head of the public defender's office. Their home life was a challenge for Maddy. She never knew what kind of mood Dan would be in when he arrived home from work.

    Most mornings Maddy took charge of the children, getting the two older ones to school and dropping Gracie off at the babysitter. However, Maddy asked Dan if he could take charge of the kid's this morning because she needed to see a client before going to work. Dan protested loudly that he didn't have the time. Maddy always took care of the children and she should have been better prepared. No, he absolutely would not be able to do what she asked. Maddy relented and asked if he could at least get Gracie to the babysitter. Dan continued to yell at Maddy, to the point of verbally abusing her, which was all too common. Maddy worked around his anger and calmed him down. Dan conceded.

    Maddy was returning to the office and was stopped by the police. She handed him the registration and it was found to be expired. The policeman gave Maddy no leniency and had her car towed. She could pick up her car after the registration had been renewed.

    Maddy was now faced with a problem but she took a chance and called Dan. She explained the situation and Dan, being his usual self, became verbally abusive but said, yes. He picked Maddy up angry and misjudging an SUV's attempt to move over became enraged. Dan continued to drive erratically in his Camaro in a fit of road rage and the inevitable happened, an accident. Dan was okay but Maddy was in a coma.

    I enjoyed listening to this book. It was filled with action and edge of the seat tension. The narrator was excellent. Susan Bennett was superb with the many voices. I would definitely suggest the book to a friend and to anyone reading this review. The depth of this book speaks volumes where verbal abuse becomes intolerable. Maddy exhibited such courage that I would have to say that she was my favorite character. The book was a learning experience for me. Another great listen.

A desperate call thrusts Captain Tucker Wayne and his stalwart military dog, Kane, into a frantic race to rescue the brilliant-but-deluded Abram Bukolov from a cadre of skilled assassins. Hunted and betrayed at every turn, Tucker and Kane must discover the truth behind a horror out of the ancient past that can be weaponized to terrorize the modern world.

    Tucker handled difficult jobs, that made his skills learned, while in the Green Berets, very useful. He always took Kane with him everywhere he went. They were a team. The newest crisis was in Russia. Abram Bukolov, needed to leave Russia and now. He had been examining a diary, left in a cave where a war had taken place between the Boars and British, in 1900. There were several pages missing that needed to be found and most importantly, if there were any of those plant spores in existence, they would have to be in that specific cave.

    There were assassins trying to kill Bukolov. Captain Tucker's and Kane's mission was to get Bukolov out of Russia and find the cave where those spores might be growing in Africa. Bukolov had memorized the map and then he burned the map. Every move that was made, the assassins were one step behind them. They had all of the information that was in the diary but not the map.

    There was a spy who had provided information to those who were following Bukolov. There was a lot of action that took place between those who wanted to destroy the spores and those that wanted to use it as a form of terrorism. The mystery, if the plant was found, was to find a way to destroy it, The Kill Switch.

    Tucker and Kane were a force against the assassins throughout the dangerous mission. The personalities of all of the character's were well developed. The plot was started and followed throughout the book. My favorite character was Kane. He accomplished every task that he was given and then some. Some of the commands given to Kane by Tucker, were very dangerous. I don't know if a person was told to do the same task, that he would have followed through.The narrator was very good will all of the character's, male and female. The book was an easy listen. I'm sure that those that listen while driving to and from work, would have no problem.
