This review is from: SPHINXES (Kindle Edition)
I am being generous in giving this book three stars. The principal character, a young man called Five, enters the US Army to become a Counter Intelligence Agent. The Army's basic training is described over many dozens of pages in boring detail. If you have ever entered the Air Force (as I did), Navy, or Army, the long, detailed description may put you to sleep. Then, we plod through his CIC training. Finally, he does some work in France, but much is romance with a female French agent. I cannot recommend the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder in the midst of Glamor, April 27, 2016

This review is from: NYPD Red 4 (Kindle Edition)
The stories in the NYPD Red series have been fast-paced and enjoyable, with plenty of suspense and plot twists. This book is no exception. It begins with the murder of a glamour girl, and theft of her fortune in jewelry, in front of a crowd of New York theater-goers. The culprit disappears, leaving a city amazed at the crime. This is obviously a case for New York's elite Red detective unit, and Detectives Zack Gordon and Kylie McDonald get the assignment. Their investigation reveals that this is not a simple murder and robbery. The culprit is after far more, and the danger increases as our detectives get closer. The suspense, action, and interplay between the detectives make for a page-turner that is most satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Realistic Thriller., April 19, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a splendid book. The action takes place in Jordan, where a gathering of world leaders is attacked by Isis. Some are killed and the President of the United States is captured and displayed online.. We see events and the frantic, dangerous search for the President through the eyes of a New York Times journalist who is on the scene and becomes enmeshed in the effort to find and free the President. This is a non-stop thriller that seems to be describing actual events.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gruesome Serial Killer in War-Torn Munich, April 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The story is set in Munich, Germany in the Winter of 1945. Seven months earlier, Germany surrendered to the Allies. The nation is in ruins. The Nazis have been arrested, have scurried into hiding, or have left the country. With Allied help, the nation is trying to rebuild. But in Munich, a serial killer is on the loose. He kills in such a gruesome manner that it terrifies the city. Mason Collins, a former Chicago Police detective and now an Investigator in the US Army's Criminal Investigation Division, is assigned to catch the murderer. The trail leads him, along with German and American Police, through the darkest and most dangerous parts of Munich, but the killer eludes them and continues his horrible murders. However, little by little, Collins moves toward identifying the fiend. Then, he realizes that the killer is now stalking him. The story is a thriller.

I found this preparation to work very well. I had four skin blemishes that I treated with the Spot Zinger. Three were gone within ten days. The fourth and largest is fading and should soon be gone also. It has certainly worked for me, and I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great story, and following it was a pleasure, December 3, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Cornwell has produced a long line of thrillers, and this novel is no exception. Medical Examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta is ready to go for a vacation in Miami, when she sees seven, shiny, copper pennies from 1981 on a wall near her home. As she puzzles over them, she receives word that a young music teacher living near her was just killed by a sniper, seemingly from overhead. As she puzzles over this, she learns that others in New Jersey have been murdered in a similar, unknown manner. These happenings lead Scarpetta on a twisting, turning investigation that that immerses you ever-deeper in the search for the serial killer, who is unknown and leaves no clues. You get the feeling that Scarpetta is getting ever-closer, but is in ever-looming danger. Finally, the case leads her to Florida, and the danger becomes all too real. This is a great story, and following it was a pleasure. I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The History of Railroads, June 9, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a fascinating history of the world's railroads, from the first train in England in 1830, to today's high-speed trains in Europe and Asia. Those earliest railroad engines looked like giant tea kettles on wheels, but they steadily developed into powerful monsters that could cheaply pull long trains of freight or carry passengers speedily and in comfort. The author gives us amazing pictures of railroads built through mountains and deserts around the world. In the United States, this activity resulted in the completion of a railroad from coast to coast in 1869. But in the past several decades, Americans turned to airplanes. This has resulted in long lines, incredibly crowded and disease-filled cabins, and overall uncomfortable flights. Meanwhile, countries in Europe and Asia are developing ever-faster, ever-safer, and ever-more comfortable trains. Air travel is great for trans-ocean and similar long trips, but it can't compare with the comfort of high-speed rail for short and medium trips. There is hope that the United States will catch up with the rest of the world in development of this modern means of transportation.

These bars are flavored with a wonderful combination of dark chocolate and raspberry. The flavors mesh well in a bar that is 36% fiber and 11% protein. Thus, it has the healthful properties of dark chocolate, fiber, and protein, and it has a great taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terror in a Hazardous World, April 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gravity (DVD)
This motion picture is a technological triumph. I felt that I was actually watching people in space, All of the careful procedures that the trained astronauts followed did not diminish the constant feeling that something was about to go wrong, and go wrong badly. When disaster struck, I couldn't take my eyes off the screen, especially since the happenings were unexpected (as they should be). The actors were superb, but the major player was the weightlessness and other dangers of trying to stay alive in space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roosevelt's Triumphant Conduct in World War Two, April 3, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a splendid book. The author has made an exhaustive study of documents relating to the Oval Office during 1941 and 1942. Although the United States had been aiding the Allies (especially Britain) during 1940 and 1941, America had no thought of danger to its territory. The Pearl Harbor attack and subsequent losses, showed that the American Military was woefully unprepared for war. Recognizing that the assembly of a world-class fighting force would take time, Roosevelt worked to put this force together. In doing this, he had to overcome constant debate with his Generals and Admirals, with his cabinet members, and with Winston Churchill's attempts to direct the pathway of America's war effort. The bickering is amazing. Still, Roosevelt stuck to his brilliant plan to hold off the Japanese forces and conduct limited war against Hitler. During 1942 and 1943, millions of American draftees were trained for combat, and American Industry created a miracle of production of hundreds of warships, thousands of aircraft, and tens of thousands of tanks and guns, until Roosevelt ordered all-out attacks that defeated the Nazis and the Japanese. The mountain of documents examined shows Roosevelt's ability to choose the right path to victory. I found this book fascinating, and I suspect it may be equally-enjoyable to readers interested in American history.
