Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon face their toughest challenge yet when a violent bank heist during the Monaco Grand Prix decimates the Corporation's accounts. To get the money back, Juan joins forces with an old friend from his days in the CIA, so they can track down a rogue hacker and a ruthless former Ukrainian naval officer. It is only after the hunt begins that the enormity of the plan comes into focus: The bank theft is just the first step in a plot that will result in the deaths of millions and bring the world's economies to a standstill.

I look forward to every new Oregon Files. This one seemed to have less detail and adventure. Also, the Nora Roberts romance touches between the Chairman and Gretchen seemed forced and out of place. Much less depth to the story. As always, Scott Brick is fabulous. I will listen to the next installment but fear the series is running out of steam.

Amazing news has spread across the Scottish countryside. The most famous of highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, may actually marry at last. The entire village of Lochdubh adores Macbeth's bride-to-be. Josie McSween is Hamish's new constable, and she is a pretty little thing, with glossy brown hair and big brown eyes. The local folk think that Josie is quite a catch, but Hamish couldn't be more miserable.

Usual good story, great characters and good performance make this a solid listen. If you like an easy listening mystery with a non-traditional detective - this is for you.
