Cam Richter, needing a break from his too eventful detective career, is in search of more peaceful pastures in the North Carolina countryside. He buys a 700-acre antebellum plantation, the perfect location for restful solitude, but it doesn't take long for him to discover that his new locale is not as quiet as he'd hoped. Almost immediately, Cam finds himself caught up in mischievous pranks around his land, the site of a Civil War-era massacre.

The story was gripping and drew you in and kept you there. I really liked the author’s sense of humour
The narrator was by far one of the best I’ve heard so far.

This could have easily been mistaken for a work of fiction, but because it is a true account of what happened over there I am relieved to know there are still men who believe in duty, commitment to a greater cause than one’s self and of coarse honour. In a world turned upside down and backwards having the fortitude to do what is right is sadly an uncommon trait but these men proved it is still alive in some of us.

Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the Navy." But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during 90-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture.

I loved how the story developed the character relationship, while bringing some of her other characters into the story with relationships already formed. I was a little annoyed that we didn't get to hear much about his daughters history or his past wife but other whys loved and defiantly will listen to it again!!!!

The short stories seem really disjointed at first, particularly the first one. I cept thinking back to it wondering why it was in this colection, but they are all bilding up to the final story, and it is great!

I am a huge fan of this auther, and the preformer adds some sweet voices to it as well.

This dark psychological fantasy is more than a moral tale. It is also a product of its time, drawing on contemporary theories of class, evolution and criminality, and the secret lives behind Victorian propriety, to create a unique form of urban Gothic.

first off I would have to say that I totally forgot about the other Tales of Terror part. For the whole second half of the listening I was wondering what the heck this has to do with mr. Hyde.

they were definitely interesting to listen to, as they come from an era when books were written very differently than today. dr. Jekyll and mr. Hyde was shorter than I expected it to be seeing as how there are so many offshoots of it.

the other Tales didn't really make sense to me though. didn't really seem to have much meaning, and the last one was quite baffling.

Following its initial appearance in serial form, Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage was published as a complete work in 1895 and quickly became the benchmark for modern antiwar literature. In the character of Henry Flemming, Stephen Crane provides a great and realistic study of the mind of an inexperienced soldier trapped in the fury and turmoil of war. Flemming dashes into battle, at first tormented by fear, then bolstered with courage in time for the final confrontation.

I love this whole series thus far (only just found out that it is not a trilogy!). It's pretty much Sherlock in space, with all the sword and gun fights one would expect from a 40K novel. Not sure where it can go from here, but I am excited to find out.

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.
