    In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset, when a crew member spots a sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames. A few hours later, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their way to the Indian Ocean. What they will find there will eventually lead them to the discovery of the most audacious scheme they have ever known....

    Bob says: "An action packed Curt Austin book"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    either i did not download the entire book (2 sections) or this story just abruptly ends. what a disappointment.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Graham Brown again?

    sure


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

    love him


    Could you see The Storm being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    yes, but depends on the ending


    Any additional comments?

    am i missing part of tbe book? sure seems like it.

  • The Son

    Story
    (1212)

    Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim. Spring, 1849: Eli McCullough is 13 years old when a marauding band of Comanches takes him captive. Brave and clever, Eli quickly adapts to life among the Comanches, learning their ways and waging war against their enemies, including white men - which complicates his sense of loyalty and understanding of who he is.

    Melinda says: "Five Stars for the Lone Star, The Son, & Meyer"
    "Absolutely one of the best ever read."

    Story

    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    Margaret says: "Lifted by Narration"
    "breath of scandal continuity problem"
    Overall

    story is fantastic, but in moving from part 1 to part 2 an entire section of the story is missing. i was so confused during part 2 that i actually came back to audible.com to see if i had inadvertently not downloaded a part. is this an author, publisher, editor or production problem?
