NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there's a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control. Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition to find the fabled Northwest Passage.

Where does Arctic Drift rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Love Dirk Pitt and the adventures he gets up too. Very descriptive narration so I loved listening to it and picturing the scene.

What did you like best about this story?

All the characters involved played a pivotal role and the book. Loved when the running theme of characters lives makes advances and continues into the next story..... I hope!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The tit for tat journey between Pitt and the enemy trying to find the treasure. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did but the narrators voice is so soothing I relax too much and nod off. Looked forward to listening to as much as I could every night.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for another Dirk Pitt novel!

The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever.

But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

When Ibby Bell's father dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1964, her mother unceremoniously deposits Ibby with her eccentric grandmother Fannie and throws in her father's urn for good measure. Fannie's New Orleans house is like no place Ibby has ever been - and Fannie, who has a tendency to end up in the local asylum - is like no one she has ever met. Fortunately, Fannie's black cook, Queenie, and her smart-mouthed daughter, Dollbaby, take it upon themselves to initiate Ibby into the ways of the South both its grand traditions and its darkest secrets.

You know your reading a good book when you float away and picture yourself beside the landmarks described in the story! Laura Lane McNeal is a genius story teller as I was gripped from the first chapter. I loved being able to visualise the characters and the era in which the story was written. Brilliant story with lots of twists and turns and the revelation at the end was so unexpected. You have to read this book!

In suburban Georgetown, a killer's Reeboks whisper on the floor of a posh home. In a seedy D.C. porno house, a patron is swiftly garroted to death. The next day America learns that two of its Supreme Court justices have been assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young law student prepares a legal brief. To Darby Shaw it was no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliant guess. To the Washington establishment it's political dynamite.

I have read this book and seen the film and I was so relaxed listening to it I could picture Julia Roberts face throughout it. Mr Grisham can certainly write a Damn good book!
