Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared....

I'm absolutely at a loss of words. What a tragic, but beautiful story. It was very moving! So inspirational! The story was so well detailed, that I felt as if I could see it all! The narrator did great! I'm amazed at the horrendous streaks of bad luck Louis endured, but he still managed to rise above...Way above. wow. I wish the world had more people like him. What an angel. Kudos to the author for bringing his life experiences to vivid life. I would read anything you write. Beautiful talent!

The stories jumped around so much it was really difficult to follow.
Don Kline narrative "skills" made me want to scream. Sentences ran together. Sentences ended like they were a question when it was a statement, and like a statement when it was a question. His fluctuation in his voice were often confusing. You could hear him swallowing at some points and fumble over words. I listened only because I bought it. I'm so happy it is over. I vow to NEVER listen to anything narrated by him again.

From trust to terror... from security to survival...The author of The Stranger Beside Me brings her brilliantly informed understanding of the sociopath to this riveting true crime collection. Only Ann Rule, who unknowingly worked alongside the smart and charming Ted Bundy - America's most notorious serial killer - could lend her razor-sharp insight into these cases of the spouse, lover, family member, or helpful stranger who is totally trusted but whose lethally violent nature, though masterfully disguised, can and will kill.

The year is 1823, and the trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Hugh Glass is among the company's finest men, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker. But when a scouting mission puts him face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. Two company men are dispatched to stay behind and tend to Glass before he dies. When the men abandon him instead, Glass is driven to survive by one desire: revenge.
