Publisher's Summary

Stephen L. Carter's brilliant debut, The Emperor of Ocean Park, spent 11 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list. Now, in Jericho's Fall, Carter turns his formidable talents to the shadowy world of spies, official secrecy, and financial fraud in a thriller that rivets the listener's attention right to the end.

In an imposing house in the Colorado Rockies, Jericho Ainsley, former head of the Central Intelligence Agency and a Wall Street titan, lies dying. He summons to his beside Beck DeForde, the younger woman for whom he threw away his career years ago, miring them both in scandal. Beck believes she is visiting to say farewell. Instead, she is drawn into a battle over an explosive secret that foreign governments and powerful corporations alike want to wrest from Jericho before he dies.

An intricate and timely thriller that plumbs the emotional depths of a failed love affair and a family torn apart by mistrust, Jericho's Fall takes us on a fast-moving journey through the secretive world of intelligence operations and the meltdown of the financial markets. And it creates, in Beck DeForde, an unforgettable heroine for our turbulent age.

    "One Star Too Many"

    The Emperor of Ocean Park is wonderful. Great story and terrific voice performance. Unfortunately, it was so good that I kept giving the author the benefit of the doubt after each succeeding disappointment. But Jericho's Fall is the last straw. Don't waste your time, money or credits on any of his other books. Be satisfied with the Emperor of Ocean Park and move on to other authors.

    "Super"

    I commute over 100 miles a day to and from my office. Initially, I was weary of the female narration, but she eventually grew on me. The book was exciting and captivating. I couldn't wait to get in my car each morning and evening for my hour drive home.

    "Terrible, terrible"

    I was so disappointed. The plot dragged, the prose was self-conscious and self-important, and the READING was truly awful. Words were mispronounced (like "epitome") or pronounced inconsistently, and the narration was just not good! Was there no editor? No director? Maybe the worst audiobook I've ever heard, and I've listened to a LOT!

    "Terrible"

    I've been a big fan of Stephen L Carter's previous books. He phoned this one in. I'm so disappointed.
