    Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

    Thank goodness for Scott Brick. I've listened to too many narrators without that ZING. The book kept me up too late since I had to know what came next. It's a crazy story, different from what I've listened to in the last several months.

    I don't do book reports but I would suggest giving this a try.

    A serial killer is stalking Virginia’s young lovers, taking their lives and taunting police with a single clue: a jack of hearts. For two years, the meaning of this card has eluded FBI investigators. But as Scarpetta begins searching the victims’ remains for microscopic clues, she begins to suspect that someone in the FBI knows more about the murderer.

    When I was reading rather than listening I loved Cornwell. This is my first Cornwell book in many moons. While the story was good I just couldn't get involved with the narration. This is one of those books I think I'd rather curl up with and read to myself.

    Former disgraced Delta Force commander Kolt "Racer" Raynor has earned his way back into The Unit after redeeming himself during an explosive operation at a black site in Pakistan. But he is about to face his deadliest challenge yet. The most wanted man in the world, American al Qaeda commander Daoud al Amriki, and his handpicked team of terrorist operatives, have acquired stores of Russian-built, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAM's) from ex-Libyan spies in Cairo.

    Story

    I'm really enjoying Dalton Fury and love the characters. This one jumped from one to another to another out the gate for Colt's team. As I listen to the stories it's easy to become attached to the individuals in the team and frustrating when one passes on. This one kicked off with the team landing on an airplane on the runway and just runs from there. I used to sit up late to read and no change with this. Just couldn't unplug and suddenly it's 3:00 AM.

    John Puller's older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason and national security crimes. His inexplicable escape from prison makes him the most wanted criminal in the country. Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance at capturing Robert alive, and so Puller takes on the burden of bringing his brother in to face justice. But Puller quickly discovers that there are others pursuing his brother, who only see Robert as a traitor and are unconcerned if he survives.

    i thoroughly enjoyed the book. I look forward to Baldacci's stories and hope he continues with McLarty and Cassidy. They bring the story more alive. Odd thing is, before I found Audible I was hesitant to read a Baldacci. Now, he's one of my favorites. I look forward to the next.

    For sports agent Myron Bolitar, the disappearance of a man he once competed against was bringing back memories, of the sport he and Greg Downing had both played and the woman they both loved. Now, among the stars, the wanna-bes, the gamblers, and the groupies, Myron is unraveling the strange, violent ride of a sports hero gone wrong, and coming face-to-face with a past he can't relive, and a present he may not survive.

    Mrs. Bobbi Cork says: ""electronic" narration? Slow-paced story"

    I realized once I got into the story that I had read the book pre-Audible. Also realized I enjoyed reading it more. I've enjoyed listening to books previously read but the narration on this left me cold.

    "It' s a question of what you have to do, what you have to live with if you don't." Sheriff Walt Longmire is reading A Christmas Carol in his office on December 24th when he's interrupted by the ghost of Christmas past: a young woman with a hairline scar across her forehead and more than a few questions about Walt' s predecessor, Lucian Connally. Walt doesn' t recognize the mystery woman, but she seems to know him and claims to have something she must return to Connally.

He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home. Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too - and he's certain he's on the right trail. Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in.

    First prize in the Skyway Soap slogan contest was an all-expenses-paid trip to the moon. The consolation prize was an authenticspace suit, and when scientifically minded high school senior Kip Russell wonit, he knew for certain he would use it one day to make a sojourn of his own tothe stars. But "one day" comes sooner than he thinks when he tries the suit on in his backyard - and finds himself worlds away, a prisoner aboard a space pirate's ship.

    Nothing about this intrigued me. Years ago I read the "Stranger in a Strange Land" era books and loved those. Then he got to the moon trips which grew a bit stagnant after a while. But decided I'd try something more current and I think I'll move on to another author. Hate to dog a narrator but this didn't help any.

Andreas - former Army Ranger and Delta - is a man of great skills and cunning. His opponent, Fao Bhang, is ruthless, determined, and with no limit to the assets at his disposal. In this conflict, there are only two possible outcomes. And only one Dewey Andreas.

    It doesn't pay to fall for Dewey. Figured something was going to happen to bring out the warrior in Dewey and sure enough. Love Dewey, love Coes and I hope there isn't a long wait for the next book. Perhaps I should say I hope there is a next book. Dewey is cranky, mean and indifferent to life which makes for a fun, rough ride. Tough though .. I liked Jessica.

    I'm really getting into Berenson and with George Guidall it comes out as a dynamic duo. Duplicating a nuke is a bit of a stretch but still makes for a good story. And for me, that's what it's all about.

Three years ago, in the mountains of Pakistan, Raynor made a split-second decision to disobey orders - one that got some of his teammates killed and the rest captured. Now he’s been given a second chance to do right by his country, his men, and himself. But Raynor’s shot at redemption comes at a price.

    Enjoyed the listen but Colt seemed to get out of scrapes just a tad too easily. Thought the story line was good but maybe a little more suspense. Same time, since this is Fury's first fiction, not bad. If he writes another, I'll listen.
