Very good book except for the author's strange reluctance to use the words "he" and "she", instead replacing these words other descriptors...very awkward and distracting.

Michael Tanner is on his way home from a business trip when he accidentally picks up the wrong MacBook in an airport security line. He doesn't notice the mix-up until he arrives home in Boston, but by then it's too late. Tanner's curiosity gets the better of him when he discovers that the owner is a US senator and that the laptop contains top secret files. When Senator Susan Robbins realizes she's come back with the wrong laptop, she calls her young chief of staff, Will Abbott, in a panic.

Ouch! This one was painful to listen to. I kept listening, hoping for it to get better but it kept getting worse. Quite a disappointment. You'll be sorry.

I listen to >50 audio books each year. I chose this book only because I was curious to read (hear) a depiction of 1960's life in the Charleston Lowcountry. I wasn't expecting much, but what I found was an amazing novel that reminded me of "To Kill a Mockingbird "...great surprise! Best book of the year!!!

I'm a Jeffery Archer fan but this book seemed to be written by someone else...perhaps Danielle Steel. Obviously a poor attempt to capture the female audience. Good narrator for such a tedious book.

In their new book, Unfit for Command, John O'Neill and co-author Jerome Corsi bring together the words of more than 200 Navy veterans who served with John Kerry and who feel it their duty to tell why Kerry is unworthy of the presidency.

Mostly very interesting.

I have always found the story of Kerry's 3 purple hearts to be suspicious. The first part of the book to creates a credible explanation for these wounds and closely examines Kerry's 4 month tour of duty in Vietnam. The remainder of the book was a bit tedious for me.
I strongly recommend the first half of this book.
