Before he was betrayed, Caine was still an assassin.... As the CIA's deadliest operative, Caine is tasked with eliminating America's most dangerous enemies. But Caine is a professional. His missions of death have rarely been personal. Until now. A fellow operative is killed on an icy New Zealand mountain. A shipment of vital medicine disappears from a UN cargo container. And a CIA cargo plane is shot down in the vast Empty Quarter desert. These seemingly unrelated events are all linked to a shadowy operation, known only as SANDFIRE...and if exposed, the fallout could engulf the Arabian Peninsula in war.

WOW!!! Yup, that's right my highest rating! This intense, fast-moving thriller starts out fast with deadly action ! It does NOT stop! From snow-topped mountains to largest desert in the world, Thomas Caine leads us through danger time and again. This story is a riot of action. One particular scene I really had me on the edge of my seat. Thomas and two of good ones are heading out into desert, hoping to get to the site where they should/could/would find what everybody is looking for ( or not). When a massive sand storm comes roaring across the desert!!! No place to hide, no place to go! Andrew Warren wrote this segment excellently and delivered by Chris Abell ( my Thomas Caine ) expertly!!
I definitely highly recommend SANDFIRE!

I listen to Audio books practically every day as well as read on my Kindle Fire and paper books. I have to say Elizabeth Klett performs Ginger Gold exactly as I pictured her in my mind's ear after reading Lee Strauss's first four cozy period mysteries. With such a great reading, I was able to simply enjoy the fine storytelling of our author without any distraction. Bravo!!! I highly recommend Murder on the SS Rosa! Give it a listen!

My first Phil F. Williams' audio book, Stone Lake, won't be my last. This was a different type of a story for me. Although it certainly has suspense and mystery, it doesn't have dead bodies floating in Stone Lake, no spies, yet there is tension that builds from the beginning. When reading this fine story which is enhanced by outstanding readers, keep an open mind, let it percolate or fester in your mind, but let it. You love Stone Lake even more!

What did you like best about this story?

....for Your Cut of Excitement! This is the first book I had the opportunity to enjoy by Libby Fischer Hellman; and not the last. Based on this experience, I have already bought Book 2 in this series. Libby weaves a taut, fast-paced thriller like a master dropping clues all along the way. But beware, not all clues are all that helpful. Buy it now, and thank you later, and I just know you will!

Now it's time for them to adjust to living under the same roof - quite the challenge for a couple in their sixties, both of whom have never been married before! But nothing could be better than having Maggie by his side when a great threat arises and Walt is, as usual, smack dab in the middle.

This C.R.A.P. is outstanding! I have been so pleasantly introduced to Walt Williams and his gang of Kansas City's senior citizens who fight crime righteously. As a sixty-six year old, I have a hero of my own age who views the world much as I. The good-natured humor as well as the extremely evil of the crimes Walt and his police partner, Ox fight; is a real treat. The narrator, George Kuch, gives such a great performance, and only brings much more to this story. Entertaining from beginning to the conclusion, this book is an exciting introduction to the Lady Justice and Robert Thornhill's fine series. I am so glad I found to have found this jewel !

Loved it? Oh, yeah, I did! I would highly recommend this outstanding work of art by Susan May. It starts out unusually, I didn't get a sense what was going to happen, but having experienced this author previously, I knew something......something rather dark was lurking around the next turn of the page. We're traveling on a city bus inside the bus driver's head, he knows his special 'talent', hints at it, teases us abit, and picks up the next passenger. He seems so sweet, and respectful of others' feelings. He's really likable so when he begins to feel drawn to one of his young female passenger. ....uh-oh. Our presenter is a master of his voices' capabilities, and changes ever so deftly from our good guy's mind to, oh no, the extremely evil guy's head. Tension? Oh, you bet, and the pace quickens! Get this audiobook! Dick Marvel brings Susan May's thriller to real life extraordinarily well. Do yourself a favor, listen with the lights on!

Redemption Games bt Barry Eisler is outstanding! If it is possible to love a book, I'd have to state having the author of said book, makes it an entirely other worldly experience. I so enjoy the descriptions of the different characters and foreign sites just add to the pleasure of this book. Having previously read three other Rain novels, I knew what to expect, intelligent wording, descriptive violences, John's inner dialogue, multiple story layers, all building to this book's satisfying conclusion. Recommend : Extremely! Next Up: Another Eisler Masterpiece.

After witnessing the murder-suicide of his parents as a child, Noah Wolf suffers from a form of PTSD that has left him without emotion, without a conscience, and without the ability to function as a normal human being. With the help of childhood friends, he learns to watch others around him and mimic their behaviors, in order to conceal the fact that his mind operates more like a computer that he has spent years programming. That program is what allows Noah to pass himself off as normal.
