Mailbox Monday started by Marcia at The Printed Page is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). This month Mailbox Monday is being hosted by Library of Clean Reads. Stop by there to check out everyone else's mailboxes.
I've had a lucky streak and won two great audiobooks and I also was gifted a scratch off lottery ticket and won 50 bucks - it's been a good week!
From the author's website: John Carr, aka Oliver Stone—once the most skilled assassin his country ever had—stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The President has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk covert mission. Though he’s fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.
But Stone’s mission changes drastically before it even begins. It’s the night of a State Dinner honoring the British Prime Minister. As he watches the Prime Minister’s motorcade leave the White House that evening, a bomb is detonated in Lafayette Park, an apparent terrorist attack against both the President and the Prime Minister. It’s in this chaotic aftermath that Stone takes on a new, more urgent assignment: find those responsible for the bombing. I love David Baldacci on audio and this one is narrated by Ron McLarty who I think is just great. Should be a good read all around. This book was a win from Kathy at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, thank you, Kathy!
