Audible.Com Makes Time Fly on a Road Trip
The Roaming Boomers love road trips!
However, if you happen to be crossing a couple hundred miles of relatively uninteresting terrain, there is nothing better than having a sophisticated spy thriller on your iPod playing through your automobile’s 14-speaker Harmen Karden sound system.
How do you do that?
Why audible.com of course?
On our most recent 10-day journey to San Diego, we loaded up James Patterson’s thriller Mary, Mary:
“FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail. Alex quickly learns that this is not an isolated incident. The killer, known as Mary Smith, has done this before and plans to kill again. Right from the beginning, this case is like nothing Alex has ever confronted. Is this the plan of an obsessed fan or a spurned actor, or is it part of something much more frightening? And particularly baffling, how could a woman be capable of these vicious crimes? Members of Hollywood’s A-list fear they’re next on Mary’s list, and the case grows by blockbuster proportions as the LAPD and FBI scramble to find a pattern before Mary can send one more chilling update. Filled with the ruthless and shocking twists that make his fans hunger for more, Mary, Mary is James Patterson’s most sophisticated thriller yet.”
In less than 5 minutes, I was able to download this novel to my iPod, and off we went with FBI Agent Alex Cross as he attempted to solve this ever twisting case as we traveled across the desert lands of Southwest Arizona.
It is amazing how these digital books can simply make time fly when you are driving.
