    An illegal immigrant is killed in a hit-and-run on a frozen mountain road in the town of Fairview, Colorado. No one is prosecuted for his death and his case is quietly forgotten. Six months later another illegal makes a treacherous run across the border, barely escaping with her life. She finds work as a maid and, secretly, begins to investigate the death of her father. But she isn't a maid, and she's not Mexican.

    David says: "Anxiously Awaited"
    "Great book, great narrator"
    Overall

    I took a chance on this one not knowing the author. I loved it. I usually figure mysteries out either entirely or partially. This one I had no idea. I was very well written and I cant wait for the next one by this author and also the narrator. She was awesome to listen to. Best narrator Ive heard yet. I think Im in love....:)

    Buried within the black ops budgets of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created. Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of military insiders. Its job is to target Americas enemies - both foreign and domestic - under a charter of three simple words: Find, Fix, and Finish.

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

    Absolutely and I have. At a time when we need more than ever to feel proud to be Americans and find a way to fight fire with fire, Brad Thors' Scott Harvath does exactly that. For those who feel like the good of the few outweighs the good of the many, maybe this is not the book for you. But if you feel like Americas worth fighting for at any cost, than read on brother, your in for a treat.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scott as usual, smart and bad ass, he's the story of many of our real life American heroes fighting for an America that doesn't live in fear or fights against those in our own government trying to keep America safe.


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Armand and George Guidell both do an outstanding job at bringing Scott to life, and making you feel like your right there.


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

    Of course!

    Against the sumptuous backdrop of Charleston, South Carolina, South of Broad gathers a unique cast of sinners and saints. Leopold Bloom King, our narrator, is the son of an amiable, loving father who teaches science at the local high school. His mother, an ex-nun, is the high school principal and a well-known Joyce scholar. After Leo's older brother commits suicide at the age of 13, the family struggles with the shattering effects of his death, and Leo, lonely and isolated, searches for something to sustain him

    "Another "Beach Music"!"
    Overall

    All I can say is, South of Broad is the only book Ive enjoyed as much or more as Beach Music. I just finished and am starting over!

    From the American South to the ancient ruins of Rome, and from the horrors of the Holocaust to the lingering trauma of Vietnam, Beach Music sings with life's pain and glory. Jack McCall, an American expatriate in Rome with his young daughter, is trying to find some peace after his wife's suicide. But when his sister-in-law begs him to return home, he finds himself drawn into a painful, intimate search for the one haunting secret in his family's past that can heal his anguished heart.

    "My favorite book of all time..."
    Overall

    I dont say that lightly, and Im not usually drawn to this genre of literature and by that I mean I usually am reading murder mysteries. But this book was written with such lyrical wording, it was like the words danced off the page into my mind. Ive read it several times and after you listen to it, you owe it to yourself to actually read it. You'll see what I mean when you do.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    Overall

    Without a doubt the absolute worst book I have ever sat through. With each chapter I promised myself that I would quit listening if it did'nt develope a plot, or something happened other than the author describing the boring minutia of the actions and past of the charactors. It was like someone telling a story that never gets to the point. In fact, even the title is misleading as there are actually no "ruins". I kept listening just hoping it was just a slow start. I thought if Stephan King gave it rave reviews, it HAD to get better. (Come on Stephan, who did you owe a favor to?) Well it did'nt and I want my nine hours back. Fortunately it was nine hours in traffic. I think the author should have to sit through nine hours of watching my old home movies as payback.(Except there would actually be some entertainment value in a few parts.)
