    Story

    Baldacci has written a roller coaster ride of a book. A professional couple get caught up in a conspiracy. Sidney Archer a criminal attorney and her husband Jason Archer a young executive at Triton Global. Become the escape goats for stolen money, murder, and selling company secrets. If you are a technology geek, you maybe disappointed. The technology used in the story is a bit outdated. Ex: (Some of the characters are using pay phones).
    Where I'm from the are almost non-existent, except for airports :) and using floppy disks. I don't know when was the last time I've seen one of those.)
    If you don't mind that the book is a bit outdated with tech terminology, then you will enjoy the book.
    The narrator Jonathan Marosz was okay, I think Scott Brick or Ron McLarty would have been a better choice.
    Over all I still enjoyed the book.

    From an early age, Kate and her identical twin sister, Violet, knew that they were unlike everyone else. Kate and Vi were born with peculiar "senses" - innate psychic abilities concerning future events and other people’s secrets. Though Vi embraced her visions, Kate did her best to hide them. Now, years later, their different paths have led them both back to their hometown of St. Louis. Vi has pursued an eccentric career as a psychic medium, while Kate, a devoted wife and mother, has settled down in the suburbs to raise her two young children. But when a minor earthquake hits in the middle of the night, the normal life Kate has always wished for begins to shift.

    Story

    This book had an interesting summary.. But it took forever to get to the point.. It took every once of patients to finish this book.. I usually like books with eccentric characters with psychic abilities. I have to say the summary is the best part of this book. It reminds me of a movie preview. You pay the money to see this great movie, and all the best parts where in the trailer...
    The book is about 2 sisters with psychic abilities, but one of the sisters does everything in her power to diminish her abilities.And it's the complete opposite with the other sister who is eccentric and proud to be a medium.
    Violet the sister who is the medium predicts an earthquake.. She goes as far as to publicly admit to the prediction.And this prediction eventually brings the two sisters together.. BORING!!1

    No One Would Listen is the exclusive story of the Harry Markopolos-lead investigation into Bernie Madoff and his $65 billion Ponzi scheme. While a lot has been written about Madoff's scam, few actually know how Markopolos and his team - affectionately called "the Fox Hounds" by Markopolos himself - uncovered what Madoff was doing years before this financial disaster reached its pinnacle. Unfortunately, no one listened, until the damage of the world's largest financial fraud ever was irreversible.

    This was my first time listening to a financial thriller. It was informative, & easy to follow. This book is about Bernie" Madoff, a former stockbroker, investment advisor, financier, and white collar criminal. Who created the biggest Ponzi scheme in HISTORY!!! The scheme affected 41 countries and worth $65 BILLION dollars. How the F.C.C. was fore warned time and time again, to become grossly incompetent. And how its still affecting people and companies today.
    Scott Brick has narrated another good book. Along with the actual characters of the book.

    For 25 years, John E. Douglas worked for the FBI, where had a brilliant and terrifying career getting inside the minds of notorious killers. Written with Mark Olshaker, Law and Disorder is Douglas’ most provocative and personal book yet. In it, he addresses every law enforcement professional’s worst nightmare: those cases where, for one reason or another, justice was delayed - or denied.

    Story

    First I want to say is, I really enjoyed this audio book. If your looking for a true crime book with several stories. Try this one out. The narrator Joe Barrett gives life to the cases written.There are so many words to describe this audio book, educational, informative, and a Eye Opener. John Douglas Retired F.B.I.agent and profiler, has written a book about several cases and trials told from different points of view. It starts with the trials in Salem, Massachusetts and ends with the Amanda Know trial in Italy.
    This book is about how innocent people are put in prison or on death row for mishandling forensics and witnesses. And how some judges will ALLOW CRACK POT testimony! After listening to this book, It honestly scares me that these people are in a position of power. Till the day of today.

    It’s not every man whose wife criticizes his fidelity, but Jacob Christianson hasn’t exactly led a typical life. Raised in a conservative polygamous sect, Jacob has struggled for years to reconcile his faith with his skepticism about the fundamentalist practices of his community. Not so long ago that conflict helped Jacob to combat a dangerous faction of his own church. Now it has brought the FBI to his door, seeking help to infiltrate a millennialist cult suspected of plotting to kill a US senator.When the FBI ignores Jacob’s warnings, it sparks a dramatic standoff with the cultists, leaving Jacob and his family caught squarely in the middle. Tense and engaging, Mighty and Strong is a page-turning foray into the world of religious extremists, culminating in a thrilling battle for supremacy that will leave no one unscathed.

    Jacob is a resident at a hospital with a wife and 3 children. But Jacob has a secret, he comes from a polygamist family. Jacob does not hold the same beliefs. And then the F.B.I. comes calling for his help. He agrees do become an informant. While doing his civic duty, his wife gets thrown out on the streets, the senator is after his(Jacob) family. Now Jacob has to pick up the pieces of his life.
    The story is about Mormon polygamists, Mormon non- polygamists, a murder, and a man calling himself a prophet. The narrator did a good job with the story. The book was suspenseful, and educational. If your looking for something different, I suggest the Might and Strong.

Now Farr asks his still-youthful protégé for a life-altering favor. An embezzlement scandal has threatened Caldwell's very existence - would Darrow consider becoming its new president?

    Story

    I'm on the fence with this book. I like Richard North Patterson books. But I thought this book was a bit slow. It's about a murder that took place in the spire years earlier. And an innocent man is in jail. Darrow becomes an excellent attorney. He used to be friends with the man who's in jail now for the murder of the girl, who was found in the spire. Something about the murder bothers Darrow, so he gets help to open the case up again. So the story begins almost 1/3 way into the book.
    I have no complaints about the narrator, he did a good job.

    I thought I read all of Dean Koontz books. Then I came across Fear Nothing. As usual Koontz know how to keep you wanting more. Unless your a Koontz fan, you may not want to listen to this book. If you are a Koontz fan, I suggest that you listen to this one. Christopher Snow has XP xeroderma pigmentosum. light-sensitivity so severe that he cannot leave his house in daylightI And his special dog Orson who is almost human. After his father dies, he stumbles across a man who's eyes where gauged out. And his adventure begins. It's about military experiments. And how his mother had something to do with it. He can't trust no one, but Orson. This book was fun and entertaining.

Three beautiful daughters and two adoring parents formed the picture-perfect party of five. But this tight-knit family unravels when the three little girls go to see a movie, but only one emerges from the darkness of the theatre. How could Sammie and Alex vanish without a trace? Until - or unless - Sammie and Alex are found safe, this picture-perfect family can't be put back together again.

    This was my first time reading a Patricia Gussin novel. It's a good suspense book. It's not your typical kidnapping. It's about identical triplets, and there bond to each other. How one sense's what the other may be going through.Even though there are identical triplets, each one is different from the other. You don't know who kidnapped the girls until 3/4 of the book. I can't say who kidnapped the girls. It will give away the " Who Done It". I would suggest this book.
    The narrator did a good job with this novel.
