    With vividly realized characters and a breathtaking pace, Last Man Standing is another spellbinding title from David Baldacci, best selling author of Wish You Well. When the FBI Hostage Rescue Team is ambushed, it is up to sole survivor Web London to find the killer.

    I gave this book 11 chapters before I finally gave up. I found the storyline very boring. It was somewhat depressing to read about the problems encountered by the main character. Others have mentioned that it gets better but I don't have the time. I don't think I will listen to other books by the author if this is an example of his best work.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Great story.
    Yes I would agreed with other reviewers that it reminds me of Harry Dresden series.
    This book combined Druids, Witches, Gods, Vampires, Werewolves and others.
    Too bad there's only three books.
    Eager to listen to Book 2

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story was much better than his last and reminded me of the old Tom Clancy.
    Lou Diamond Phillips still does a good job at narrating.
    The last part suggests another edition coming soon.

  • Rain Fall: John Rain Thrillers

    Haunted by the past, John Rain kills to order and leaves no trace, but the death at his hand of an old man has unforeseen complications - and soon Rain is trying to protect not just his carefully preserved anonymity but his own life and those of the people he cares for. A stunning, page-turning reinvention of the hitman thriller, Rain Fall marks the introduction of a compelling new series character and major new thriller writing career.

    George says: "Great new take on the Assassin Genre"
    "No "Thrill""
    Overall

    This was my first exposure to a John Rain Thriller and I was very disappointed. I stopped listening. Very little action for a story about an assassin. I agree with another reviewer - way too much detail in Japanese.

    On a busy Washington morning, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a deadly terrorist attack on the executive mansion. The president is evacuated to an underground bunker, but not before nearly one hundred hostages are taken. Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

    Michael says: "Great Story-Bad Narration"
    "You can't replace George Guidall!"
    Overall

    Although I'm a devoted fan of Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp, I must admit I found the voice of Nick Sullivan to be annoying and poorly engaging. I almost stopped listening. Many of the characters sound like Smithers from "The Simpsons".
    George Guidall does a much better job.

    For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance?

    Jean says: "Against All Enemies"
    "This is No Jack Ryan novel"
    Overall

    I recall staying up all night reading the latest spy thrillers from Tom Clancy. His last two novels I regret are not of the same caliber. I was somewhat disappointed by this novel. The best part is the last quarter of the book. I didn't find Steven Weber to be a captivating narrator. I almost stop listening at one point.
    If you want suspense and action stick with Vince Flynn novels.
    Sorry Tom.
