    His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

    Story
    What did you love best about Without Remorse?

    How John Kelly was continually knocked down by life's circumstances and some how was able to pull himself up and keep going.


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

    It was a roller coaster ride from beginning to end.


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

    When Michael reads it changes from just words on a page to relating the story as the author intended the listener to experience.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I can't think of anything at this time.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm just a Tom Clancy and Michael Prichard fan.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Threat Vector to be better than the print version?

    I am addicted to audio and seldom purchase anything in print.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't have one. After the release of the Teeth of the Tiger with a new set of characters Tom Clancy has breahed new life in his books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I rarely have favorite scenes and usually view a book after I have completed it and able to absorb the total content.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I do not have one after all the movies made from his books they speak for themselves.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope he continues to write with Mark Greaney and would recommend to anyone who has not listened to Mark's books to purchase one they will not be disappointed.

    Would you listen to House Rules again? Why?

    Yes, I would and I have listened to the other "house" books several times. They are pure entertainement. I have either used my credits or purchased evey book in this series.


    What other book might you compare House Rules to and why?

    Brian Haig has a series with a character that is similar to DeMarco and is also very entertaining.

    Yes, the narrator does an excellent job.


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

    I usually come close to listening in one sitting.

    I hope Mike Lawson keeps this DeMarco series coming. I have this let down feeling when his books end I want them to keep going.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

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

    YES..I have been listening to George for the last fifteen years and know I will get a geat read.

    In Thirteen Hours, homicide detective Bennie Griessel struggled to solve the murder of an American girl, find her missing friend, and avoid drinking again. In Seven Days, Griessel is given another nearly impossible task. Two police officers have been shot, and the department has received an email from the shooter alleging a cover-up in a cold case. He threatens more violence until the case is solved. The case in question is the murder of Hanneke Sloet, an ambitious lawyer stabbed to death in her apartment. There's no apparent motive and no leads, just a set of nude photographs and an ex-boyfriend with a rock-solid alibi.

    Linda B. says: "Tasteless and boring"

    He came to England to rest. He calls himself Michael Shaeffer, says he's a retired American businessman. He goes to the races, dates a kinky aristocrat, and sleeps with dozens of weapons. Ten years ago it was different. Then, he was the Butcher's Boy, the highly skilled mob hit man who pulled a slaughter job on some double-crossing clients and started a mob war. Ever since, there's been a price on his head. Now, after a decade, they've found him.

Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    James Lee Burke's books have never failed to keep me on edge. He has a way of bring you in and not letting go until the last word.


    What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

    His cajun accent is so believable I would not recognize his normal voice.


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

    No..It totally held my interest from start to finish.
