Iron River by T. Jefferson Parker, narrated by David Colacci. Iron River refers to the flow of illegal weapons across the border between California and Mexico.
Charlie Hood, a familiar protagonist of Parker’s, is an LA County sheriff’s deputy helping the ATF. Gunrunners prove difficult to deal with and a personal vendetta begins. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
mpact by Douglas Preston, narrated by Scott Sowers. An unnatural feature hidden in a deep crater on Mars is activated. A meteor lands near the Maine coastline. Gemstones that appear otherworldly are found in Cambodia.
A scientist discovers inexplicable gamma rays in the outer Solar System and is then murdered. Pretty intense, wouldn’t you say? I have read some of the books that Doulas Preston wrote with Lincoln Child, but none of either author’s independent works. Maybe this is a good one to start with.
The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova, narrated by Treat Williams, Anne Heche, Erin Cottrell, Sarah Zimmerman, and John Lee. Kostova wrote the incredible novel, The Historian, which I thoroughly enjoyed. In The Swan Thieves, psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe takes on a client who pushes him to go beyond his ethical and legal boundaries. The initial reviews are mixed, so I’m waiting for more input.
Treasure Hunt by John Lescroart, narrated by Jeffrey Cummings. Mickey Dade works as a private investigator. The murder of a high profile activist ends up on Dade’s plate as one of the persons of interest in the case is one of his sister’s friends. Of course, she is young and beautiful. This sounds like a pretty good thriller to me!
Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, narrated by Dennis Boutsikaris. Yearning to find out the behind-the-scenes details of the 2008 US Presidential campaigns? Heilemann and Halperin, two political reporters shed light on the biggest questions raised, such as Why did McCain pick Palin?
I certainly would like to know the answer to that one, wouldn’t you?
