I first read this wonderful science fiction gem in my late teens and have enjoyed re-reading it about every 10 years. It never gets old or dated or less fascinating. Whenever asked my favorite SF novel, this has consistently been number one, despite many other wonderful SF books. Finally, it is an audible book! What took so long? Highly recommended and you won't be disappointed.

This case could potentially make Terry's career, but how can he defend a former friend who betrayed him?

This is one of those books that is a great read, but an even better audio book. At first, David Thorpe's narration took a little getting used to, but within minutes, it became a necessary part of the enjoyment. This is an excellent story with characters one can really recognize. My friend read the book, but didn't listen to the audio. I urged her to listen and afterward, she agreed the narration helped and the story got better and better. You'll enjoy this gem!

Introducing Wyoming's Sheriff Walt Longmire in this riveting novel from the New York Times best-selling author of Dry Bones, the first in the Longmire series, the basis for the hit Netflix original series Longmire. Johnson draws on his deep attachment to the American West to produce a literary mystery of stunning authenticity, full of memorable characters.

Oh Lord, Please don't let anything happen to George Guidall. Keep him safe for all who listen to his wonderful narration of the Walt Longmire Mystery series. He brings it to life. I was waiting in an office recently while listening to his narration of "Cold Dish" and suddenly barked out a laugh I couldn't control. All heads turned my way, and I apologized and stated it was an audible book I was listening to. Smiles all around. The series by Craig Johnson is as wonderful as the narration. Thank you audible.com for much enjoyment!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and didn't want it to end. Steve Thayer wrote another wonderful murder mystery titled "The Wheat Field". I hope Audible makes this available asap. Thayer is an extraordinary writer.

Delta Force—the US Army’s most elite top-secret strike force. They dominate the modern battlefield, but you won’t hear about their heroics on CNN. No headlines can reveal their top-secret missions, and no book has ever taken readers inside—until now. Here, a founding member of Delta Force takes us behind the veil of secrecy and into the action to reveal the never-before-told story of First Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force).

What an extra ordinary American - as are all the men and women who serve this country in the most dangerous places. He is remarkable. I wish there had been more about his personal life. I come from a military family and could identify with many of the sacrifices of Eric Haney. I really enjoyed this book.
