L'Amour pulls me into the far blue mountains along with Barney Sackett and his growing family. Knowing the end of this history doesn't spoil the adventure. Join the history lesson experience.

His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

is nice to find a story with a good mystery not a lot of sex and unnecessary violence. As Cole Sage finds is renewed purpose​,, the energy a man on a mission fills the story with excitement and motivates me to see my past driving my future

Enjoyed the espionage and crime/terrorist drama with multiple threads to lead my conclusions switching antagonists until the very end. Well done in the style of Baldacci.

Struggled with subject matter. I like crime dramas but this one dealt with child porn at a first person perspective. Very disturbing and could be used as er9tica for those creeps too. Too much sex in the book for grandfather Bob. my last Taylor/Monroe Family series. Too bad as I really loved the style of storytelling and location.

One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming The Dark Knight Rises, lent her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.
