Brilliant narration from Michael Sheen. An excellent performance.

Bright Lights is the latest installment in the fantastic John Milton series.
On this occasion, Milton has a road trip in the US planned, along with the desire to see Elijah fight in Las Vegas. On the way, he bumps into an old friend. When offering help to someone in clear distress, Milton soon becomes embroiled in a much larger plot. The usual action and edge of your seat intrigue ensue. The book itself is left on a real cliffhanger, with some series favourites turning up to lend Milton a hand. Really can't wait for the next chapter in this series.
Can't recommend Bright Lights enough. Can't recommend the John Milton series enough either. Newcomers would definitely enjoy the series more if completed in order.
Fantastic narration from David Thorpe. Throughout the series he's been flawless.

My first book by Stuart McBride, and I certainly enjoyed it. Cold Granite is the story of a police hunt for a serial killer who has been targeting children on the streets of Glasgow. Gripping, the story moves along at a good pace and is rather chilling at times. Some interesting characters, and I enjoyed Logan McRae as the lead person in the story. I'll certainly be looking for more in the Logan McRae series.
Well narrated by Steve Worsley.

What a superb dramatisation of Alexandre Dumas' classic.
A great story retold beautifully, with some fantastic acting alongside perfectly placed sound effects and music to really do justice to such a wonderful tale.
On this occasion, the story is retold by Milady de Winter, providing a novel twist to the tale.
I've really enjoyed Audible's dramatisations, and The Three Musketeers is truly an exceptional addition to the collection.

This took a while to get going, but it was definitely worth the wait. Some really interesting characters, great plot and surprising twists. The latter half of the book really kept me gripped.
Great narration from Lisa Coleman

Having already read Raise the Titanic, I had a good understanding of the backstory here, but that didn't at all detract from my enjoyment of The Titanic Secret. This particular story forms a crucial part of Raise the Titanic, and goes into detail about the fateful efforts of the Colorado miners and their quest to get the rare ore to American shores. Unsurprisingly, there's plenty of people determined to get in their way.
Packed with typical Isaac Bell action and adventure, with superb narration from Scott Brick.

Raise the Titanic is the fourth book in the Dirk Pitt series. For a large part of the book Pitt takes a bit of a back seat, but is soon thrust forward into action as things get to the nitty gritty. The story centres around the US quest to recover some long lost minerals that have the potential to create a superweapon that could render Soviet missiles useless. Obviously, the Russians are keen on preventing the Americans in doing so.

A good story from Cussler, though not one of his best. Very enjoyable nevertheless.
Great narration from Scott Brick as always.

Another great Gray Man story. Really enjoying the series, and this is another superb instalment.
Gentry finds himself caught up in a race to stop a Russian general, who was thought deceased, from launching a revenge attack against the west.
Great to see major characters - Court, Hightower and Zoya all working together on this one. The story, as with all from this series, is very engaging.
Some 'questionable' accents and dodgy pronunciation of Scottish place names, but it doesn't detract from the story. I like Jay Snyder as a narrator he's been great so far this series.
Highly recommended Mission Critical, but you'd definitely enjoy it more if you're up to date with the series beforehand.

The Gray Man series is really good, edge of your seat action, and Back Blast is no different.
This time, we get to understand more about events leading up to the shoot on sight status being given to Gentry. It's an intricate web of espionage and counter espionage, with Gentry being played by both sides.
Great story, superbly compelling and can't wait for the next one!
Great narration from Jay Snyder once again.

The Grey Man series has been extremely compelling and utterly absorbing, but Dead Eye has to be the best instalment yet.
Gentry finds himself being played by someone with a similar background to his. Someone who wants to be like Gentry, and to be as renowned as him too. It soon becomes apparent to Gentry that the situations he finds himself in, and the seemingly impossible ways out of those situations that present themselves are all staged..
The race is on for Gentry to find out why..
Superb narration from Jay Snyder.
