    Days before the July Fourth holiday and the dedication of One World Trade Center at Ground Zero, an incident aboard a commercial jet flying over the Atlantic Ocean reminds everyone that vigilance is not a task to be taken lightly. But for iconoclastic NYPD detective Jeremy Fisk, it may also be a signal that there is much more to this case than the easy answer of this being just the work of another lone terrorist. Fisk suspects that the event might also be a warning sign that another scheme has been set in motion.

    Shay Remby arrives in Hollywood with $58 and a handmade knife, searching for her brother, Odin. Odin’s a brilliant hacker but a bit of a loose cannon. He and a group of radical animal-rights activists hit a Singular Corp. research lab in Eugene, Oregon. The raid was a disaster, but Odin escaped with a set of highly encrypted flash drives and a post-surgical dog. When Shay gets a frantic 3 a.m. phone call from Odin - talking about evidence of unspeakable experiments, and a ruthless corporation, and how he must hide - she’s concerned.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Finishing the book instead of requiring me to buy the sequel and not informing me this was part 1 of a two or 3 part series.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Part 2 if if ever comes out


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tara Sands’s performances?

    Yes, she was great


    What character would you cut from Uncaged?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, let us know next time that this is the frist part of a 2 or 3 part series. And that the story does not resolve itself in part 1.

    When two local gangbangers are found dead, who really cares? This "who cares" case quickly turns into a high-profile hunt for a serial vigilante killer. The body count and pressure rise in Fort Worth, Texas, as local community leaders and media pundits stir up political discourse and racial tensions mount. Police Detective Jake "Cowboy" Hunter has been out of the field for six months struggling to overcome the on-duty shooting death of his longtime partner. His boss has an easy case for him to "get back in the saddle" while breaking in a new detective.

    I found the story very entertaining and loved the twists and turns. Very well done.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake Hunter because he did not come across as being too macho and all knowing.


    What about David Halliburton’s performance did you like?

    All of it.


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

    Must see!


    Any additional comments?

    I was not expecting it to be as good as it was. Much better written than I expected for a first time novel.

    Myron hasn't heard from Terese Collins in years. Not since their affair ended with no explanation. There had been no contact since, so her call catches him off guard. She's in Paris, she says, in trouble, and only Myron can help. She tells him a sad story she's never before revealed: a good marriage, her struggles to get pregnant, the happiest moment of her life when her only child was born, the day everything she'd ever loved was taken from her.

    Karen says: "Highly recommend/but prefer Marosz over Weber"

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

    Yes but only if he as following the series in order


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    What never ceases to amaze me is how utterly stupid Myron always is. This is the 9th book I have read of this series and in every case you can count on Myron to:have forgotten his gun, move ahead even when his stupid moves gets others killed, never ever sense the danger until it is way too late, have Winn save his ass because Myron always screws up. It is a comedy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The book was entertaining g


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All the stupid moves Myron makes. Hysterical


    Any additional comments?

    Can not wait to read book 10

    In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.
