The thrilling conclusion to The Extinction Files is finally here! In 2003, the first human genome was sequenced. But the secrets it held were never revealed. The truth was discovered 30 years ago, almost by accident. Dr. Paul Kraus had spent his entire career searching for what he called humanity's lost tribes - human ancestors who had gone extinct. When Kraus compared the DNA samples of the lost tribes with our own, he found a pattern of changes: a code. At the time, the technology didn't exist to unravel what it meant. Kraus hid his work and disappeared.

Immediate Action is a no-holds-barred account of an extraordinary life, from the day Andy McNab was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital to the day he went to fight in the Gulf War. As a delinquent youth he kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS Regiment he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents.

What disappointed you about Immediate Action?

Far too much detail about the hour by hour life of Andy. Different assignment, same details over and over.

What could Andy McNab have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Immediate Action leads a person to believe that there will be action.

Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Thornley’s performances?

Not sure.

A new addition to the New York Times best-selling Stone Barrington series. After an eventful trip to Bel-Air and a reunion with his sophisticated (and very wealthy) former love, Arrington Calder, Stone Barrington is back in New York, and he's looking to stay closer to home and cash in on his partnership at Woodman & Weld. But Arrington has other plans for Stone... including introducing him to the child he fathered many years ago.

What disappointed you about Son of Stone?

I have never heard so many 3 word sentences.

What was most disappointing about Stuart Woods’s story?

No mystery, or plot-only a string of Stone Barrington and his son getting richer in a string of totally improbable events.
