As the true horrors of the Third Reich began to be exposed immediately after World War II, the Nazi war criminals who committed genocide went on the run. A few were soon caught, including the notorious SS leader Heinrich Himmler. Others, however, evaded capture through a sophisticated Nazi organization designed to hide them. Among them were Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death” who performed hideous medical experiments at Auschwitz; Martin Bormann, Hitler’s brutal personal secretary; Klaus Barbie, the cruel "Butcher of Lyon"; and perhaps the most awful Nazi of all: Adolf Eichmann.

O’Reilly Hits Another Homerun!
As with all of his Killing books, O’Reilly masters bringing to life the historical figures of the past in new and vivid pallet. I was also glad that O’Reilly narrated this book. Some of his other books have been narrated by others and though they were great, his voice adds something special to his own writing.

Tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis… Weather can be deadly – especially when it strikes without warning. Millions of Americans could soon find themselves at the mercy of violent weather if the public data behind lifesaving storm alerts gets privatized for personal gain. In his first Audible Original feature, New York Times best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis delivers hard-hitting research on not-so-random weather data – and how Washington plans to release it.

Free but a total waste of time!

I am glad that Audible offers these original audio books at no charge to subscribers but this work really was useless, non informative and had no point. It pretty much sucked as far as an audio book. How does one return a free book? For that matter how can I gain the over 2 hours of waiting to see if there was any point to this original. It would have never sold one copy had it not been a free pick. Horrible, horrible, horrible waste of my time!

The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.

A Blast From the Past

The book was entertaining. The storyline weak as it attempted to bring back a new storyline from Season 1 1966. The narrator, Robert Petcoff however kept the story entertaining. He is a fabulous narrator and has a real knack for the voices of all of the characters. This is evident all the way to Balock who was played by Ron Howard’s Brother Clint Howard when he was a little boy playing Balock! The voice and timing was on the mark and well done!

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett reveals the real story behind Hillary Clinton’s deep state collaborators in government and exposes their nefarious actions during and after the 2016 election. This audiobook reveals how persons within the FBI and Barack Obama’s Justice Department worked improperly to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. When this suspected effort failed, those same people appear to have pursued a contrived investigation of President Trump in an attempt to undo the election results and remove him as president.

I knew that the liberal establishment was out to get The President but this book reveals the depth of depravity to which they will stoop! If what Greg Jarret reports in this work is true, then as a nation we have never seen such a blatant example of conspiracy to overthrow a duly elected President! Everyone I know will be told to read or listen to this book.

At Captain Chakotay's suggestion, however, she orders the fleet to focus its attention on a unique planet in a binary system where a new element has been discovered.

Not much at all!

This story lacked the typical quality of story line for a Star Trek series book! The narrator was so bad there was no distinction in characters she portrayed and it was hard to follow when they all sound alike. The storyline was needlessly filled with references to alien sexual gender preferences especially in reference to “Echeb” a very conflicted Borg rescue who was incapable of being a sexual individual let alone the fact that he was now a homosexual non human. The book was just not good. Very few I return to Audible. This will be one that goes back!

Twenty years have passed since the interstellar scourge known as the Husnock were exterminated without warning by a being with godlike abilities. Left behind, intact but abandoned, their desolate worlds and derelict ships brim with destructive potential. Now a discovery by a Federation cultural research team has drawn the attention of several ruthless factions. From black market smugglers to alien military forces, it seems every belligerent power in the quadrant hopes to capture the Husnock's lethal technology.

So good I can’t wait to start Hall of Hero’s! Robert Petcoff’s narration brings each character to life and in a way more enjoyably than a movie or TV show. If you are a Trek fan, I highly recommend this series. I also find Audible the most friendly platform for audio books out there.
