Kid Curry has been portrayed as a cold-blooded killer, without any compassion or conscience, and possessed of limited intelligence. Curry indeed was a dangerous man with a violent temperament, which was aggravated by alcoholic drink. Mark Smokov has researched extensively in areas significant to Curry's story and corrects the many false statements that have been written about him in the past. Curry was a cunning outlaw who planned and executed robberies.

Enjoyable listen. Slow on the start as you get through the genealogical facts
The story was well researched and was insightful into the life and times of the Hole in the Wall Gang

In 2011, a 26-year-old libertarian programmer named Ross Ulbricht launched the ultimate free market: the Silk Road, a clandestine website hosted on the Dark Web where anyone could trade anything - drugs, hacking software, forged passports, counterfeit cash, poisons - free of the government's watchful eye. It wasn't long before the media got wind of the new website where anyone - not just teenagers and weed dealers but terrorists and black hat hackers - could buy and sell contraband detection-free.

I was completely swept up in this story. Story has all the markings of a best selling thriller but in reality it is stranger than fiction. The attention to detail is amazing and the listener is invested in the characters and their choices and decisions. I came upon this book by chance but would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for the next good read. I not only super enjoyed it I learned a lot. I will definitely be looking for more by this author. Additionally the narration was terrific.

It's July 5th, and the Cape Cod roadways are clogged with tourists heading home from the holiday weekend and trying to outrun an approaching potentially catastrophic hurricane. But in the blink of an eye, their lives are thrown into chaos when terrorists bring down the bridges to the Cape. Instantly, a half million terrified people have no way to escape. And when the terrorists threaten to release anthrax on the captive population if their demands aren't met, fear turns to all-out panic.

Annabelle Fortin landed herself in a bit of trouble. Mandated to community service at an assisted living facility for early onset dementia she meets Jezebel, one of the residents. This is the story that unfolds over the course of Annabelle's court ordered six-month sentence. Nothing is what it seems.

This is the second book in the series I have listened to. I found it to be a good story with lots of action and adventure. Great characters that really come to life through both the story and the narration. I would recommend both this book and the original Yeagers law.

In this brave and shocking memoir, the author masterfully guides us through the pivotal points of her life, from an abusive upbringing that destroys her self-confidence, to the wreckage of an ill-conceived marriage, and on to a defining moment, full of grace and mercy, which gave her the wings to become the conquering and triumphant phoenix she is today.

Right from the beginning I could not put this down. It is a memoir of an abuse survivor, but it is so much more. It is a gripping and heartbreaking story you can't help but keep listening It consumed my life for the two days in which I listened to it. The authors conversational style in telling her story without judgement is riveting
It reminds me of an old saying. People don t judge you by the things that happen to you but by the way you deal with those things. This is certainly true of Kathryn Brettell. This story will stay with me for a long time. This is not the type of book I would normally choose but I am so glad I did. Well worth recommending

The story is well written with a well developed group of main characters. The writers attention to detail with respect to locations,customs and characters makes it easy for the listener in envision. The story in complex with a number of locations and sub plots that weave into the main story. It was easy to be drawn into the story and held interesting twists and turns to hold your interest. It was hard to put down and kept you guessing. Overall an enjoyable listen.
