It was a hell of a long shot.... CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever - in Sinful, Louisiana. With a leak at the CIA and a price placed on her head by one of the world's largest arms dealers, Fortune has to go off-grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element.
I really had fun listening to this book! I was laughing over the antics of the 2 old women. I can't wait to listen to the next one! There is some swearing but it's minimal. About a PG rating if it was a movie. :-)
Vampyres don't exist. They absolutely do not exist. At least I didn't think they did 'til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead? Now I'm a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren't bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite, and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe.
I dont mind a few bad words in a good book with great characters. I dont even notice it. But when four letter words are in every sentence, I cant get through the first chapter.
I was looking for light and fun and found foul..
Assassins have eliminated a Chechen scientist who's been working as a double agent for the U.S. government. The feds know who to call: Jonathan Grave and his elite rescue team. Their mission: Find the dead man's teenage son, who's on the run - and off the grid - with crucial information that must not fall into the wrong hands. There's one problem: The boy's bodyguard is a security specialist with unusual talents, and she's not giving up without a fight.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
The narrator was excellent
In remote, icy Greenland, ex-Air Force General Steven Macaulay helps lead an expedition to recover a lost World War II plane. Encased in ice below is a find that will astonish the world - a perfectly-preserved Viking ship, buried for nearly a thousand years, along with the frozen corpses of nine crewmen. Assembling the foremost Viking scholars, Macaulay tasks the gorgeous Lexy Vaughan to translate the ship’s markings - until her work is cut short when her colleagues are murdered.
Good characters, good reader, interesting concept. I enjoyed it but it is not on my read again list.
Solid. Worth the credit.

When Lori Shepherd's husband, Bill, is summoned to a will reading at the Earl of Harrisford's resplendent Palladian home, Lori herself thinks she is just along for the ride. But this gathering of the entire Harrisford clan, all of them affected by the earl's new will, devolves into a dangerous family dispute. Burning topiaries, threatening notes, suspicious maids, and family intrigue lead Lori to seek her phantom aunt's help in identifying the culprit before he or she can torch the whole house and its guests within.
WHY would they hire a reader liike this and why would the Author allow It? I would buy every book in this series if it wasn't for the reader!!! So Dissapointed! The original reader, Christina Moore was great. Get her back and re-record these books and I will be the first in line to buy the series!

The Humans have destroyed 2,000 Alliance Warships and now they are taking the war to the worlds responsible for attempting to destroy Earth. The Alliance still has more than 48,000 Warships but the way things are going, they may not be enough. A new Queen has come to power and her impact on the struggle will be monumental.
I liked the first book, even though the story had giant holes in it and it was light on details to make the story work. It was entertaining and I liked the characters. The story was a little silly. A highschool kid, being chased by the law is grabbed and made the leadrer of the world against evil space aliens. Yeah, that could happen. His powers were fun though.
This book continues with the evil aliens killing humans that had surrendered just because they did not like us and planning to annihilate Earth. They like to wipe out planets and kill everybody. It is part of thier culture. So with our fearless leader leading we beat the aliens with fanciful technology we got from other aliens they had killed.
Rather than destroy these evil guys we sit down to talk. Our fearless young hero's wife convinces the evil leader of the aliens that he was wrong and hated humans for no reason. He sees the error of his ways, So the wife Says" the aliens are our friends now so lets give them our technology!"
At this point I would have thrown a physical book across the room, but I really did not want to break my new Iphone.
I like Sci Fi and I have read Bad sci Fi before, but this should be in the childrens fairytale
"If we just talk to the evil people who want to kill us for fun, they will like us and we can all be friends " section. I am sorry I wasted credits on this series. Buyer beware!

A sleazy motel, burrowed on the edge of town, is haunted by rumors of dead hookers found between mattresses and peep holes drilled through walls. When Special Agent Daniels targets the motel during an investigation, the nefarious owner, Sanjay, must scramble to conceal evidence of his own dark deeds. Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace.
But a compelling story. I cant tell you why I kept reading, it was gross and revolting but facinating. Read at your own risk! A Horror story with Giant radioactive bedbugs, Jihadists, prostitutes, and a vile hotel owner with a live website from cameras that show what goes on in the hotel.
Only one likable character. Discusting.
Kenneth Chinran commanded the elite unit assigned to take out an entire planet in a terrible war. Millions died; billions more perished in the aftermath. One doesn't send a sociopath on such a mission. A sociopath might not stop. Chinran did stop, but in the process nearly lost his sanity and his soul. But one of Chinran's men was a sociopath going in. Now he's a trained sociopath with the knowledge and firepower to take out entire tactical teams, evaporate through security cordons and change identity at will.
I loved the beginning of this book and wish it had stayed with those characters. The story is sci-fi but that is peripheral because with this story, because it wasn't nessesary for the story to be in space. Two opratives are chasing an assasin,that one of them knows but they never see and they keep missig him and I got bored and quit in the middle of the book. Maybe it gets better. It might. I had better books to read.

Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy. But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye. But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons.
The narator was ok, the story was ok. I won't bother to get the rest of the series. Too many holes in the narative, and te characters don't resonate with me. I am a big fan of sci fi books with battles. just not this one.
Three stars is my code for not sorry I read it but won't read it again or look for more books by the author.

Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House.
This classic haunted house book stands the test of time. the characters are engaging and the house is sinister. I have to admit I would love to visit it. The housekeeper is suitablely deadpan and strange. " there is no one to come if you call in the night after dark.''
Visit Hill House and get the shivers again. "Whatever walks there walks alone!"
