Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

I loved everything about this Harlan Coben story. It was intriguing with many twists. My husband and I listened to it on our trip and we both loved it! Of course, then you have have Scott Brick, who I consider one of the best narrators in the business, and you have a magical combination of excellent storytelling and story! Wow!

The plane circled in the dark. Joe Pickett could just make out down below a figure in the snow and timber, and then three other figures closing in. There was nothing he could do about it. And Joe knew that he might be their next target. The Cates family had always been a bad lot. Game warden Joe Pickett had been able to strike a fierce blow against them when the life of his daughter April had been endangered, but he'd always wondered if there'd be a day of reckoning.

Abandoned by his parents as an infant, Scully was reared in an orphanage, Huntington House. The only positive thing in his young life was the attention of the Home’s director, Walter “Pop” Dix. Pop, an avid surfer, would take a small group of kids for early morning surfing. He was the father none of them ever had. That was 30 years ago. Now, Shane is forced to revisit these memories when Pop is found dead, the victim of an apparently self-inflicted shotgun blast.

I felt that this was one of the best Shane Scully stories. The story delved into Shane's youth and his relationship with Walt, his mentor in his youth. I enjoyed the interactions among the pallbearers and the deft character development as they worked together to solve the mystery of Walt's death. Loved it!

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

Couple Vince Flynn's exciting story and with George Guidall narrating and you have a hit!

What other book might you compare Executive Power to and why?

This is the first Mitch Rapp story so I have nothing to compare it to, however, I will purchase others!!!

Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

YES! I have read Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series. George Guidall is always superb and never ever disappointing!!

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

Do assassins ever retire?

Any additional comments?

A must read!
