    Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years. Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not the audible version. The female narrator is excellent but the male narrator voice is completely wrong for the character. His voice takes you out of the book. It would be more enjoyable to read this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Sarai's spunk & determination.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Stephen Bel Davies and Kate Reinders ?

    Kate Reinders was great but I would have liked Michael Kramer, Rob Shapiro or George Guidall.


    Did Killing Sarai inspire you to do anything?

    No

  • The Hard Way: A Jack Reacher Novel, Book 10

    Story
    (297)

    Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation. He will use any amount of money and any tool to find his beautiful wife and child. And then he’ll turn Jack Reacher loose with a vengeance - because Reacher is the best man hunter in the world.

    Would you listen to The Hard Way again? Why?

    No. The story was good...classic Reacher, but the narration was painful.


    What other book might you compare The Hard Way to and why?

    If you enjoy the Reacher series, this is a good one.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The voice used for Reacher was good but the voice/inflections used for EVERY other character was whiny and therefore grating. It pulled me out of the story.


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

    No. I usually start a story & play it to the end. I couldn't do it for this one because of the narration. I turned it off several times to start other books before I returned to it.

    Story
    (221)

    Four friends, recent college graduates, caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy they devise - quick, efficient, low risk - works like a charm. Until they kidnap the wrong man. Now two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are after them - the law, in the form of veteran state investigator Kirk Stevens and hotshot young FBI agent Carla Windermere, and an organized-crime outfit looking for payback.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Have you listened to any of Edoardo Ballerini’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't


    Was The Professionals worth the listening time?

    Yes but not a stay up all night listen.


    Any additional comments?

    From the beginning of this story you can easily guess how it will end. Usually that's enough to make me put a book down but this story was so engaging that it kept me involved to the end. Again the story is predictable but it is told in a way that makes you REEALLY hope for a twister at the end but *sigh* it's not to be.
