Bob Johansson didn't believe in an afterlife, so waking up after being killed in a car accident was a shock. To add to the surprise, he is now a sentient computer and the controlling intelligence for a Von Neumann probe.

I loooooove this book and when it ended I yelled in my car "f.uck when is the next book coming?" I think this more then anything tells you should listen to the 1st book and buy this one at the same time. The narrator does a perfect job of changing all the voices of the character, especially since 80% of them are clones of the same character.

I write software at a San Francisco startup. I have my dream job, but I also have a secret. We are not alone. The last time I was taken I was 14. Three weeks ago I celebrated my 21st birthday, and I know that the grey men will soon come again. I devoted my life to technology so I'd be ready when they returned. Others have prepared too, and I will find them. Together we will harness the abilities they have given us. We are Project Solaris. It's time to fight back.

I have listen to most of Chris Fox's books and always sad when I'm done. If you are just discovering him then you are very lucky. Start with No such thing as wear wolfs and go thorough that series then start this book. It will give you a great understand and appreciation for this very good book. Also you can buy the 1st three of wear wolfs as a group which is great. Enjoy!!

Appaloosa, the hometown of Territorial Marshals Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch, continues to prosper, but with prosperity comes a slew of new trouble: carpetbaggers, gamblers, migrants, peddlers, drifters, thieves, and whores, all boiling in a cauldron of excess and greed. And there's a new menace in town: a wealthy, handsome easterner - and the owner of Appaloosa's new casino - Boston Bill Black.

I love Robert Parker and loved the Cole & Hitch combo. But since Parker passed this series has fallen off significantly. It was a western with no gun fights. The dialogue dragged and was uninspired. Please get a new author to pick up this series and pretty please bring back the original narrator. Rex Linn is probably good but terrible with these character!!

I enjoyed both this and the 1st book Power of the Dog. Both are long books but you don't feel it. They follow the main characters, a DEA agent and a drug kingpin during their rise to power, their brief friendship and eventually their all out war with each other. The book as enough historical reference that you can tell that these men and the other characters are based on real people and real events. You get a true insight to what life for them and the terror the people in Mexico have lived through during this periods. Very eye opening! Defiantly worth the credits. But get "Power" 1st!

Were the Egyptian gods fanciful imaginings of primitive people or something more? Some believe they once walked the Earth as mortals, that they warred and loved just as any of their worshippers. This is their story--the tale of how Isis gained the power of shaping. How mighty Osiris died and lived again. How they discovered the fabled First Ark, a structure older than man. It is the tale of us all, the story that shaped our race from cave dwellers into the people we are today.

I love this character and by far Leonard Mc Gill and his son Twil are the most interesting I have seen in years. Would love to see a spin off book of Twil taking center stage. So Walter put down whatever you are writing and please give us another Mc Gill book!!

Smokey Dalton and Jimmy, the young boy he protects, have settled into a new life on Chicago’s South Side. But when Smokey gets hired to investigate the death of a black man in a local park, he realizes that the murder might not be an isolated case. The Chicago Police Department doesn’t really investigate black deaths, particularly near the South Side. Smokey thinks the case easy, until he digs deeper into the history of the area, a history that includes gangs, racism, and secrets so dark they threaten his very existence.

And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

I love, love this book! It was better then the 1st and mad that it is over!
The book has all the things that I love. A not so perfect hero, who is looking to find himself and do the right thing. Willing to do things that are not always what we view as the right thing like kill people but does it b/c not to would be worse. Funny self deprecating. If you have not read this author get the 1st book you will immediately get this one and be waiting like I am for the 3rd! HDTV
