    When the elderly father of a top Pakistani cricketer playing in the multi-million-dollar Indian Premier League dies during a post-match dinner, it’s not a simple case of Delhi Belly. His butter chicken has been poisoned. To solve the case, Puri must penetrate the region’s organized crime, following a trail that leads deep into Pakistan - the country in which many members of the P.I.’s family were massacred during the 1947 partition of India. The last piece of the puzzle, however, turns up closer to home when Puri learns of the one person who can identify the killer. Unfortunately it is the one woman in the world with whom he has sworn never to work: his Mummy-ji.

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

    Third book in the Vish Puri series, this story further develops the characters and reveals the surprising and inspiring past of "Mummy G". The book combines humor, intrigue, and social commentary in a truly unique and entertaining style. The narration is expertly performed and artfully captures the personalities of each character.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, having gotten to know the characters from the previous two novels, it was exciting to see how each person dealt with their situations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I particularly liked the scene where Puri predicted the palys in the cricket match.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The recollection of Mummy G attempting to rescue a poor girl from a life of slavery.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Jean says: "Spies and a counter espionage"
    "This is so true to what is going on it is uncanny."

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

    Absolutely I would recommend this book to a friend, it is probably more accurate that the news.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really like Gavin Biery, the behind the scenes computer whiz who can do just about anything in the cyberworld.


    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    Such a great and consistent portrayal of the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me shudder, thinking that this cyber-warfare is really happening, and hoping we really have some folks that are as good as Jack Jr. and Ding and Gavin to defend us.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom Clancy will be missed greatly!

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    Mary Lynn says: "Brilliant story, pitch perfect narration"
    "So realistic it was hard to believe it was fiction"
