In 1937 Amelia Earhart vanishes somewhere over the Pacific, giving rise to one of history's most confounding puzzles.

When searchers believe they have found the location of Earhart's crash-landing, Navy SEALs Dane Maddock and Bones Bonebrake are sent on a covert mission to locate Earhart's crashed Electra aircraft and recover its contents. But nothing is ever easy for Dane and Bones. They soon find themselves facing off against mercenary forces, deadly creatures, and nature itself. Join Dane and Bones on another action-packed adventure as they head out in search of Electra!

    "Very interesting historical fiction"

    This book is one of the first ones I have listened to in a while that got me thinking about the subject and doing research. Is it true about Amelia Earhart? Read this book for yourself and follow along on the adventure. While it is fiction, it was fascinating to stop and think about it. I enjoyed the narration and the plot - bravo!

    "I'm a Dane and Bones fan"

    I love the butt kicking that goes on in these books. The action and adventure these guys get into is wild and fun. I'm definitely going to continue on with the series and see where they end up!

    "Wish it was longer"

    I enjoyed the how detailed the book provided but I wish it was longer
    It was almost like they off their rushed through the book I would have thought this was and abridged version. I would recommend this book to others and I will read the rest of the series but my only complaint is that it was short

    Story
    "Exciting adventure steeped in history"
    What made the experience of listening to Electra the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed all of the history of the back story of Amelia Earhart. Before this, I had only know her as someone who had tried to fly around the world and in the course of that adventure went missing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the way that they authors wove Ms. Earhart's story into the plot I also enjoyed the interplay between Maddock and Bones.


    Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Kafer does a wonderful job narrating this book This type of adventure story is right up his alley. His attention to detail, pacing, emotion and range of voices keep me coming back for more.


    Any additional comments?

    Electra is book 6 in the Dane Maddock series. I have only listened to this one book in the series and at no time did I feel like I was missing something by not having had listened to the previous books. Mr. Wood and Mr. Chesler have created characters that are very likable and I will be on the look out for the other books in the series.

    Story
    "Devoured in a day"

    Action, adventure, mystery, conspiracy, explosions, treasure, navy seals, scuba diving, planes, boats, dolphins but no kissing.

    It was a refreshing change from all the chick lit I've been reading lately. An exciting tale full of twists and turns. I got caught up in the story and devoured the book in a day.

    This is the sixth book in the series, but the first one I have read. It stood up well on its own and I didn't feel like I was missing any vital information. I listened to the audiobook edition which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was fabulous. He spoke clearly and at a good pace. Jeffrey Kafer's narration was well suited to the book, expressive and deep, without being all "Barry White" come hither.

    What made the experience of listening to Electra the most enjoyable?

    Dane and Bones are tasked with infiltrating the salvage team to confiscate items that could be damaging to the US. As usual nothing goes easy for them. Everything is an exciting adventure.Set in the South Pacific Dane and Bones handle all the ups and downs of their adventure .

    Would you consider the audio edition of Electra to be better than the print version?

    I received this audiobook free because I agreed to write a review. Thank you Audible.com.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    Dane Maddock is a smart, man's man hero. Jeffrey Kafer's voice is perfect for these characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I like listening to a book in one sitting because I can keep the characters straight & keep the suspense buildup constantly.


    Any additional comments?

    The whale's job was very interesting & scary!

    "Another Hit"

    Dane and Bones are back with a bang. I love these origin novellas, just long enough to enjoy in a day and become immersed in the Maddock universe. This book has all you expect from David Wood....action, humour, bad guys that deserve their comeuppance and mixed with a great narrative of the story. This book is co-authored with Rick Chesler and I think their writing styles really blend well together.

    Jeffrey Kafer was on fine form for this audiobook. The style of reading that he uses really grips the listener and he doesn't let go of them until the end. It's a fun and entertaining listening experience.
    Whenever I read a Dane & Bones book I now hear Kafer's voice when I read anything Bones says, I think he is my favourite character that Kafer performs in the Maddock universe.
