Four years ago, Erin's life changed drastically. Her drug-addicted brother killed her parents, and her marriage disintegrated. Her husband Matt, an FBI agent, had done his duty when he'd arrested Stuart, but she'd been too caught up in her own grief to allow him to help her move through the shadows of pain. Now Matt is back, but it isn't to attempt reconciliation. Her brother has escaped from Attica, and Erin is his next target. Matt will stop Stuart by any means necessary.

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

YES, I ALREADY HAVE. I LIKED THE ADVENTURES WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF ROMANCE AND A LARGE AMOUNT OF MAYHEM, THE BOOK MOVES FAST!

What other book might you compare Extreme Measures to and why?

WE HAVE ALSO LISTENED TO "TESTED BY FIRE" ANOTHER BOOK DONE BY JOSHUA BENNINGTON AND THE TWO BOOK ARE SIMILAR IN THAT BOTH BOOKS HAVE A LOT OF ACTION AND A LITTLE ROMANCE

What about Joshua Bennington’s performance did you like?

I ALWAYS LIKE BOOKS DONE BY JOSHUA BENNINGTON. I THINK HIS VOICE AND HAS ACTING ARE RATHER SEXY. AND HE GIVES HIS AUDIO BOOK A RATHER NICE TOUCH

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

I THINK THE BROTHER KILLED TOO MANY PEOPLE, AFTER THE FIRST FEW MS CARRINGTON GOT THE POINT ACROSS THE THE BROTHER WAS A BAD GUY.

Any additional comments?

WE LIKED THE AUDIO BOOK AND WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE

How can one pilot cram so much into a single lifetime? Climb into Captain Terry Reece's cockpit, fasten your seatbelt, and hold on for an exciting journey into the world of aviation. Born to a family of transplanted North Carolinians who moved to Washington State, a young Reece explored the hills of the Pacific Northwest. Hiking in the mountains and being a fire lookout gave him a taste of adventure, but he craved more-and he got it.

This audiobook is a delightful light-hearted tale about boating. It is the memoir of a lifelong boater, written from the perspective of a person who has not made a living at sea but is just there because he enjoys being on the water. The audiobook has stories about his pets on board and about the people he meets traveling the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterways (GIWW). He traveled extensively for 10 years in a Grand Banks trawler. This journey has been just part of his lifelong boating adventures seeking that elusive boating paradise.
