Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

What made the experience of listening to Separation of Power the most enjoyable?

Like everyone else I must say the narration was the worst ever! So bad that it changes the personality of Mitch and the other key players. I dont like Anna anyway but this made her out to be such a whiny BiTch. The story was very good and unfolded at a nice pace, worth giving a try.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kennedy-she has backbone and is level headed

Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Kliban’s performances?

NO

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes

Any additional comments?

NO

Jazz is a likable teenager. But he's also the son of a (now incarcerated) infamous serial killer, and "Dear Old Dad" has taught Jazz everything he knows. But what Jazz doesn't know is whether or not he is destined to follow in his father's footsteps. He knows he has urges, but he also knows that he has a conscience, that he can follow his own path. And so, in an effort to right his father's wrongs, Jazz decides to help the police (although they don't know it yet) hunt down "The Impressionist" - a new serial killer in town.

Would you listen to I Hunt Killers again? Why?

Yes, story was excellent, well written with believable characters. I cared about these people and especially Jasper

What other book might you compare I Hunt Killers to and why?

cant think of any

Which character – as performed by Charlie Thurston – was your favorite?

Jasper, but they all were great. Mr Thurston has a way of changing his voice for each character so you know exaclty who is speaking at all times.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me gasp a few times, kept me guessing

Any additional comments?

Is listed as a teen novel and the contents are mostly mild, however there are a few scens that made me wince. I think a more appropriate description would be mild Adult.

John Cray has a secret. For 12 years he has stalked and kidnapped women, setting them loose in the mountains of eastern Arizona, hunting them like animals, and taking their lives. He has left no clues. He is suspected by no one. Or so he thinks. But now he has a problem. Somebody - a woman whose name he doesn't know - is stalking him. She follows him when he makes his nightly rounds in Tucson. She watches him on busy street corners and in shadowy restaurants. She seems to know his secret. But if so, why hasn't she gone to the police?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, story was very good and performance was enjoyable

If you’ve listened to books by Michael Prescott before, how does this one compare?

NA

Which character – as performed by Katina Kalin – was your favorite?

She has a nice voice but a character didnt stick out

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

Things are not what they seem

Any additional comments?

Story was very good but author goes on and on and on. He cannot just write 'So and so enters the room", he has to tell you why he enters the room and recall some past experience in that characters life where entering a room reminds him of this now present opportunity to enter the room. I love a good back story, but every scene, every character, every thing they do has a back story!! I found myself fastforwarding and missing nothing in the process.
