"The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

Also ...not a review. I'm sure I'll love the story. But I have downloaded the file to my 2 devices (old). One is an original Ipod Shuffle. The other an old black Phillips mp3. On both devices I can see the code appear on the device when opened on my PC...but neither produce audio when played. The Phillips device gives the message "file not compatible" Maybe I have to buy a newer mp3 or iphone?
I'm glad it's only $4.95. But I'm annoyed that I can't get the story...I am a huge fan of Nelson...I served in the NZ Infantry in Vietnam the same year he did his tour, so I can relate to his stories like "word of honor" and "Up Country".
But maybe at age 66 this new-fangled audio book thingee is too advanced for old grunts.
Maybe one of you young techo nerds out there can suggest a solution for me?
Loved it. I mean I can't wait for The panther which has Corey back, and Scott Brick does a good job with him. I have read all the Corey books and was really upset when I thought they were all done so this has given me somthing to look forward to. I admit that Demille's other books are nice but nothing entertaining as much as Corey
No, this book, even though it is a short story, did not live up to the name of the author nor did it do justice to the character of John Corey. I have read almost every book of DeMille's and particularly enjoy the John Corey series. This seemed to be an afterthought.
Write it as a full length novel which would give time for the personality of John Corey to expand and give a wonderful writer such as DeMille time to develop the background needed for this piece.
Brick is a great performer and I feel that what I did enjoy of the story was the performance of Brick.
I have bought 80 books YTD from Audible.com. I have not listened to one bad book by DeMille. I am listening to MAYDAY by DeMille now and it scares the crap out of me. It reminds me of that flight 700, I think it was &00 that went down in the Atlantic after the Navy shot it down accidentally then covered it up.Government cover-ups!!! NOTHING NEW THERE.
Detective like always in this series
Yes! Brick does a fine job in most of his work, although when he has to perform or act like a "whiny guy" it doesn't suit him. He sounds like a "bitch." It like George Goodell is the only guy to read for Randy Wayne White and Ron McClarty for the author, I forget his name, maybe Silva, but the main character was an ex spook who lives in the cemetary across from the White I mean Black house.
Whoever read Lynsey Boxer's character in Patterson's latest book was mediocre at best. The other woman is better. I know every narrator. I have what people have told me is a "tonographic memory". I never forget a voice, ever! I have even been tested. i use to be able to tell anyone where somebody was born and grew up down to a five zipcode range, anywhere in the country. It was a hobby for me.
You will think I am insane for saying this, but I will bet anyone $100,000 that Brad Pitt is Robert Redford illigitamate son. I can tell by his voice. Anyone else who has intelligence training in facial recognition or behavior sciences with a specialty in in recognition will agree with me if they take fifteen minutes and compare their facial movements, ie., lip movement, cheek movements, leg stances etc. I bet $100,000. I know I'm correct.
Also, the "guy" who narrates the low testosterone commercials on tv for that "egomaniac neurosurgeon, Jacob jewenstein, from Hopkins, or whatever the asshole's name is, the narrator is a biological relative of former governor Mike Huckabee.
Gotta go for now.
Yeah! I know youwill think I'm a nut but check out what I said. You will see I'm correct.
This is a taste of John Corey. Brief, but interesting and a little something to satisfy our desire for more of John Corey before his last adventure. Maybe Nelson DeMille will come up with a couple more of these for all his Corey fans. I enjoyed it, and recommended it to my friends.
Yes, I have enjoyed most of his books on tape.
He makes the character alive and believable, probably more than DeMille had thought possible.
It was full of redeeming qualities, story, character, length and narrator.
This is not a review of the book. I can't review the book becuase . . .Did everything the website said and still could not open the file. Audible is pretty much worthless. That's $4.95 I won't get back. Thanks for nothing.
