After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the Navy dismisses the sighting as injury-induced imaginings. In a last-ditch effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorism team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Based on the preview I expected a thriller not some overly sex and more sex bit.

What could Suzanne Brockmann have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Leave out most of the sex. If this had been rated like a movie it would have been XXX.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

See above.

Renowned as FDR's favorite warship, the cruiser USS Houston was a prize target trapped in the far Pacific after Pearl Harbor. Without hope of reinforcement, her crew faced a superior Japanese force ruthlessly committed to total conquest. But the men of the Houston fought back with dignity, ingenuity, sabotage, willpower, and the undying faith that their country would prevail.

Provided a lot of information about the start of WWII in the Pacific, not only about our allies but specific information about the treatment of our troops as POWs.

Drawing on previously unpublished eyewitness accounts, prizewinning historian Donald L. Miller has written what critics are calling one of the most powerful accounts of warfare ever published. Here are the horror and heroism of World War II in the words of the men who fought it, the journalists who covered it, and the civilians who were caught in its fury. Miller gives us an up-close, deeply personal view of a war that was more savagely fought - and whose outcome was in greater doubt - than one might imagine. This is the war that Americans on the home front would have read about had they had access to previously censored testimony.

I would listen to this book again and probably will. I thought I already knew a lot about this time period but this book provided some insite and information I was totally unaware of.
