Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

John Puller's mother disappeared nearly 30 years ago. Despite an intensive search and investigation, she was never seen again. But new allegations have come to light suggesting that Puller's father - now suffering from dementia and living in a VA hospital - may have murdered his wife. Puller is officially barred from working on the case and faces a potential court-martial if he disobeys the order, but he knows he can't sit this investigation out.

I enjoyed this book so much more than any of the others, and I loved the others! I loved the "bad guy" in this book, he is an intense, complicated character and was written and portrayed beautifully. The girl Susan Davis was also fantastic. The narrators were amazing and really did justice to these characters.

Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance at capturing Robert alive, and so Puller takes on the burden of bringing his brother in to face justice. But Puller quickly discovers that there are others pursuing his brother, who only see Robert as a traitor and are unconcerned if he survives.

As an enormous fan of the Snow Decker character, I am thrilled to discover another David Baldacci character I might love equally as well. This is just another prime example of Baldacci's unquestionable talent. The narrators of this novel have done many of his books before, and they are the best. Any Audible experience is automatically going to be better if they do it. They're an amazing team. High praise all around!

This fantastic narrator did her best to save this novel. She had very little to work with. The story dragged on and on, filled with the most mundane conversations, it seems the author was trying to fill pages. And the ridiculously long sex scenes even had me yelling "Oh for the love of God, finish already!" Again, just filler. And the heroine (Cecilia) was an airhead of the highest quality. There is very little to recommend this book except the narrator.

I always enjoy a good Julia Quinn novel. this is the first time I've listened to one of her books on audible. I thought the performer did such a fantastic job I won't hesitate to listen again. I was so surprised at the performers ability to do quality men's voices she really made the characters come alive.

The stories started off nicely, but the narrating was so painful I couldn't continue so I don't know how the first ended and I never listened to the others. The narrator should be a younger voice to match the young lady characters. Also, the attempt by the narrator to do a male voice is laughable. Who wants to fall in love with someone that sounds like they're severely constipated? And the ladies sound like shrill and then gravelly smokers in turn. Very unfortunate.

On the right side of the law. Sort of. Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee: his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy.

Rye Mallett, a fearless "freight dog" pilot charged with flying cargo to far-flung locations, is often rough-spoken and all business, but soft on regulations when they get in the way of meeting a deadline. But he does have a rock-solid reputation: He will fly in the foulest weather, day or night, and deliver the goods safely to their destination. So when Rye is asked to fly into a completely fogbound northern Georgia town and deliver a mysterious black box to a Dr. Lambert, he doesn't ask questions.

In an effort to add twists and turns, this book just ends up being convoluted. The twist, which is Sandra's signature is no twist at all. Further, the whole ending is so ridiculous with the whole scene at the Senator's mansion I almost deleted the audiobook then. It was a struggle to get thru. The narrator does a pretty good job considering the poor content he has to work with.
