An Involuntary Spy by Kenneth Eade
When a genetic modified food biologist turns whistleblower and escapes with top secret reports to Russia you get an awesome spy adventure. An Involuntary Spy is a fast paced thriller that is well written, well researched and held me cover to cover. Seth Rogan’s life on the run in Russia takes a shocking turn when he discovers a food safety cover up. Spy training, falling in love with a beautiful young teacher and trying to stay alive was a blast. Plenty of twisted and turns kept the plot steaming along with lots of political tension and an action packed ending that absolutely rocked. I’m looking forward to the next Kenneth Eade novel.
Horror That Really Sticks To Your Bones
As Halloween approaches I can’t help but reminisce about the creepiest books I’ve read over the last ten years. These books left me in such a horrified state, that until this day, I still remember the effect they had on me. Don’t get me wrong, but some people think scary is slashers and serial killers. The thing that really leaves me sleepless is not from this world. These novels are so soul chilling, they still creeps me out. Don’t believe me? Give them a try. You’ll think twice about walking into a dark room at night. Happy Halloween and Cheers, Garrard Hayes
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts is by far the best audio book ever. Lin goes through a moral, spiritual and emotional journey after he escapes from prison in Australia and hides in Bombay, India. The story has Crime, Romance, Adventure and a deep peek into India culture. Humphrey Bower does an unforgettable performance, changing his voice for the myriad of characters and accents. Its a mammoth book at around 55 hours.
I was so engaged while listening that I cried in my car during parts and I'm still sad that its over. I've recommended it to family, friends and anyone who would listen to me. Every one of them has had the same reaction. Worth every penny... I've listen to it twice, but the first time discovering Lin's journey in Bombay was the best.
