Fiction dominates this month, with one thriller, one novel based on fact, and two easy-going tales from established authors.

2. 'Tom Clancy True Faith and Allegiance,' by Mark Greaney

(Read by Scott Brick; Random House Audio; 16 CDs; 20 hours)
Scott Brick brings his usual A-game to this lengthy techno-thriller written in the style of Tom Clancy.  However, unlike Clancy's original material, this is bloated and we never really connect to the characters on an emotional level. Several different subplots are woven into a story in which international terrorists are targeting Americans on US soil. It starts out a bit slow and somewhat clich├ęd, but picks up steam as the story unfolds  Brick reads the narrative with his usual even pace and smooth delivery, successfully slipping into different voices for dialogue. This material is adult-themed.
Grade: B+
