This book was available in audio form via Overdrive from my library. Yay! I hope to get more that way but the wait time is usually prohibitive so except for some older crime novels and nonfiction I’ll likely not use it much.
I read Meltzer’s The Inner Circle back in 2015, and gave it a B, not too impressive except that I did mention that I enjoyed the characters and was considering reading the second and third in the series. I never did though. Okay fine –

rating: A- / crime-thriller
This book intrigued me because of the publisher’s description:
Nola is trouble.And Nola is supposed to be dead.Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she’s dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim “Zig” Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run.Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig’s daughter and someone who once saved his daughter’s life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he’s determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola’s past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes.
It’s a mystery and a thriller which, with Scott Brick reading it is a high tension adrenalin rush which doesn ‘t stop.
