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.

What a shame the books starts like the previous 3 riveting then falls away completely. Perhaps this is where the new writer takes over ?
Such a shame they have managed to destroy a great series of books.

What did you love best about Cold Cold Heart?

A new author for me.
Hooked from beginning to end.
Riveting,
Plus an insight into 'traumatic brain injury' TBI and PTS 'Post traumatic stress'.
Cant wait to hear more of Tami Hoag books.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Without a doubt

Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?

All good

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not to be missed.

When Jilly Cooper was asked to write a book on marriage, she had been married to Leo Cooper for a mere seven years. Now they are celebrating their Golden Wedding, and although the institution of marriage has changed a great deal since this book was first written, much of Jilly's advice – frank, fearless, often hilarious, but always wise – still holds good. From the wedding and the honeymoon to life afterwards, including how to deal with the in-laws and how to tell if you spouse is having an affair....

Out of the 200 audio books I have downloaded over I dont know how many years as a member this without doubt is the worst.
Im reluctant to even give a star it's more a twinkle of a point...

Please Neal Stephen dont write any more in the series or at the very least read a Ken Follett or Steve Berry to get a better idea of weaving a story through your facts.

It is slow listening, boring, and the narration monotonous.

Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the French Pyrenees: the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, her version of the life of Jesus and the events of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of L'Attendu, the Expected One.

For the daVince Code fans, this far excedes that book. Cant wait to hear the following stories. Leaves your mind wondering what is true? What if?? Dont give up listening when it starts reading from the bible. by the end of the audio you'll want to listen to it all again to sort out the facts.
