    Tyler Locke's routine commute on a Washington State ferry is interrupted by a chilling anonymous call claiming that his father has been kidnapped and that a truck bomb is set to detonate on board in twenty minutes. When Tyler, a former army combat engineer, reaches the bomb on the boat's car deck, he's stunned to find classical languages expert Stacy Benedict waiting for him. She's received the same threat and her sister has also been taken.

    Although the author had an imaginative explaintation of the Roswell incident, the story was pretty predictable. I like the narration of Boyd Gaines much better.

    I am listening to this series in order - and I suggest you do the same - and this is by far my favorite to date. The characters are falling into place. I love James Marsters as the narrator, he gives Harry the perfect voice.

But after he is greeted at gunpoint in London, both the fugitive and Gary disappear, and Malone learns that he’s stumbled into a high-stakes diplomatic showdown - an international incident fueled by geopolitical gamesmanship and shocking Tudor secrets.

    I love this series and this book did not disappoint. I love the way Steve Berry weaves historical facts with his own ideas. It gives his books a great twist. I appreciate how Mr. Berry explains the places he visited for his research at the end of his book and separates the fact from fiction. I highly disagree with other reviewers regarding Scott Brick's narration. I think Mr. Brick is one of the best narrators and cannot imagine Cotton Malone with any other voice.

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    This has to be the worst book I have ever read (listened to). I generally like sci-fi, fantasy books and thought this looked interesting. I was so VERY wrong. Don't waste your time or money on this.
