Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast. When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Highest recommendation if you liked RELIC. This story adds depth, interest, and definition to it's predecessor..

What was one of the most memorable moments of Reliquary?

Too many memorable moments to deliniate only one.

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I don't really care for Dick Hill's oral interpretation in general, but this story carries him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

My first time with Preston & Child but I have listened to Lincoln Child before and enjoyed his stories.

Amos Decker's life changed forever - twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good and left him with an improbable side effect - he can never forget anything.

Where does Memory Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Memory Man is every bit as interesting and mysterious as all his books. David Baldacci can't seem to write a story that is interesting and spine tingling to the end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Neither Ron McLarty nor Orlagh Cassidy seem to be able to effectuate a different character but Baldacci's stories and dialogue carry the day.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

MEMORY MAN

Not Up to Child's Standard

It takes too long to get into the story and not enough interesting activities and I am only at the end of Part 1. Very unusual for Lee Child.

Super Bowl-winning coach and #1 New York Times best-selling author Tony Dungy has had an unusual opportunity to reflect on what it takes to achieve significance. He is looked to by many as the epitome of the success and significance that is highly valued in our culture. He also works every day with young men who are trying to achieve significance through football and all that goes with a professional athletic career - such as money, power, and celebrity.

First Family will keep you in suspense until the very end. Lots of action and great dialog. I highly recommend this story by Balducci
