    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.

    Story

    "The Survivor" is one of those rare books that truly affects the reader. This is more than your typical thriller - the characters draw you in; the story visceral and horrifying, and Scott Brick's narration is, as always, spot on.

    I listen to thrillers for pure entertainment and escape, so I wasn't prepared for the emotions brought up by "The Survivor." Hurwitz managed to touch my nerves to such an extent that, at times, I had to stop listening in order to recover from the horrible images he planted in my imagination.

    Be prepared to be terrified. This is no ordinary book.

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    Story

    I just finished “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking” and must say it’s the most important book that I've ever read. While it’s focused on the introverted personality, it provides keen insights into understanding all people. I wish that I had read this decades ago!

    It doesn't matter if you’re an introvert or extrovert, parent or child, teacher or student, husband, wife or partner, boss or employee – this book helps you comprehend and interact appropriately with people of all types. And, when it comes down to it, understanding others is the foundation for both building relationships and maximizing our own potential.

    Jake Reese is a writing teacher at an American university. He lives in a small brick Tudor close to campus with his art-buyer wife, Diane. His life is quiet - ordinary even. And he likes it that way. But it wasn’t always quiet. Jake’s distant past was a life on the streets, inflicting damage and suffering on more people than he can count. And now someone from his past, it seems, has come looking for him.

    Story

    I've come to expect great things from Audible books, and "Already Gone" sounded like the kind of book I'd like - intrigue, action and suspense. But what I got was an inane and unbelievable case of 1-dimensional characters. And now my time is "already gone" and I'll never get it back.

    I'm used to books like those from Daniel Silva, Vince Flynn, even David Baldacci - books with characters that evolve and plots that have subtlety. "Already Gone" had neither of these.

    The main character is naive beyond belief, and repeatedly acts like a complete doofus. I kept hoping that he'd do something that showed a modicum of intelligence or clear thinking but it never came.

    I could go on, but why bother, I've already wasted too much time on this book. My only hope is that I can prevent others from wasting their money and time.

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    Story

    It's hard to tell if it's the totally inappropriate choice of narrator or a weaker than usual story, or both but it was hard to enjoy Separation of Power like I have most of the others in this great series.

    I can say for certain that the narration was a big disappointment. The high pitched, nasally narration simply didn't do justice to the characters. After all, were talking about high-powered, testosterone filled men.

    The story itself lacked the feeling and depth I've come to expect from Flynn. Fortunately, there are a lot of other books in this series, almost all of which are in my library, so I can go on to enjoy those again and again. But I don't think I'll be re-listening to this one.

    On a busy Washington morning, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a deadly terrorist attack on the executive mansion. The president is evacuated to an underground bunker, but not before nearly one hundred hostages are taken. Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

    Story

    Unfortunately, I must concur with all the other reviewers who complain about the narrator. Sullivan marred a perfectly good story with voice acting so poor that it was painful. The at times robotic and others whiny and nasal, and sometimes just plain clumsy, breaking....sentences at places...that made no sense.
    Unless you're a true fan of Vince Flynn, I have to suggest you avoid this audiobook - it simply doesn't do justice to the writing.

    Note to Audible - you hurt your reputation and that of the author by allowing such unfortunate narrations. You would greatly benefit from re-recording this book with the master who narrated the other Flynn novels - George Guidall.
