This is an excellent audio book. The reader and book make for a terrific listen. I was engrossed to the end, constantly changing my suspects. Yes it is a long book, but would not recommend abridged. I wouldnt want to miss a thing.

Excellent book. Keeps you guessing till the end and leaves you wanting more. The reader could have been better chosen... not the best choice for female characters, but he pulls it off.

All the stories in this collection from Stephen King are related to the Vietnam War. King fans will recognize echoes of The Dark Tower series in the collection's first story, "Low Men in Yellow Coats." As the characters develop over the next four stories, King's version of the Vietnam War becomes one of his most frightening tales ever.

A new store has opened in the town of Castle Rock, Maine. It has whatever your heart desires...if you're willing to pay the price. In this chilling novel by one of the most potent imaginations of our time, evil is on a shopping spree and out to scare you witless. Presented unabridged and read by the author.

Excellent book. I love all the "Myron" books and wasn't dissappointed. However... the narrator is different from all the other audio books in this series. It definitely made a difference. This narrator lacks the personality and sarcasim you love with Win and Myron.

What would happen if millions of people around the world suddenly disappeared one day? In this fascinating apocalyptic thriller, best-selling Christian inspirational authors LaHaye and Jenkins pool their considerable talents to answer that question. Narrator Richard Ferrone's unusually deep and hypnotic voice will keep you right in the middle of this not-unimaginable end of the world nightmare.

Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.
