    NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk hunts an assassin working for a shadowy cartel in this action-charged second installment of Dick Wolf's New York Times best-selling series, a masterful thriller that blends politics, intrigue, and twisting suspense. A number of bodies are discovered on the United States' border with Mexico, each carved with a bizarre symbol: a hummingbird. Detective Cecilia Garza, dubbed the Ice Queen among her colleagues at the Mexican intelligence agency because she's famous for never showing an ounce of weakness, arrives at the scene and recognizes the image immediately; it is the calling card of a killer called Chuparosa.

    Would you try another book from Dick Wolf and/or Peter Ganim?

    Wolf's first book had a great premiss and twist. I hope his third one will be back up there.


    Would you recommend The Execution to your friends? Why or why not?

    Performance doesn't bring out the tempo of the writing. And the plotting is just okay.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Peter Ganim?

    No

    Story
    (183)

    In David Ignatius' gripping new novel, spies don' t bother to steal information...they change it, permanently and invisibly. Graham Weber has been director of the CIA for less than a week when a Swiss kid in a dirty T-shirt walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and says the agency has been hacked, and he has a list of agents' names to prove it. This is the moment a CIA director most dreads. Weber isn' t sure where to turn until he meets a charismatic (and unstable) young man named James Morris who runs the Internet Operations Center.

    Charles says: "Well Done."
    "Performance is Slooow."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Director to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the dead tree version


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Too slow a reading...had to put my iPod on "faster".

    Story
    (2194)

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Good plotting. As usual Child's moves it right along.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Every thing. His enunciation and pacing seem to add life the words. Ive listened to the Reacher books before Dick Hill, he's head and shoulders above the other gentleman.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.
