In his audiobook, A Higher Loyalty, former FBI director James Comey shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like and how it drives sound decisions. His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of powe, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.

  • Good book, fairly bi-partisan if you're into that.

Elsa est une enfant solitaire et sa seule amie est sa grand-mère. Mais un jour, la vieille dame meurt : la petite fille fera son deuil en allant transmettre des lettres que sa grand-mère avait écrites pour de nombreux destinataires : lettres d'excuses, de regret et d'amour. Elle comprend petit à petit que les contes qu'elle lui racontait s'inspiraient de personnages bien réels.

Backman is a remarkable author: a super story teller with enormous human compassion and deep understanding of the human spirit. His play with language is delightful. The humour is through out. This French version is superbly performed by Bernard Gabay. Anglophone Audible customers deserve access to this book. Keep on writing Frederik Backman!

What happened to Jacques Gaillard? The brilliant teacher at the École Nationale d’Administration, who trained some of France’s best and brightest as future prime ministers and presidents, vanished ten years ago, presumably from Paris. This ten-year-old mystery inspires a bet—one that Enzo Macleod, a biologist teaching in Toulouse, France, instead of pursuing a brilliant career in forensics back home in Scotland, can ill afford to lose.

Reader needs to be able to pronounce French names and cannot. A Scottish accent is appropriate for some of the characters only. Otherwise he has a lovely voice and performs very well.
