    Story

    Abe Glitzky and Dismas Hardy are two of the greatest fictional characters ever created. Lescroarts' series is
    justifiably famous, and Davis Colacci's narration is tone-perfect. The feel of San Francisco (where I have lived and worked since 1978) is so vivid and accurate that you can't help but feel you are there. The plots are classic thrillers, and Lescroarts keeps you guessing until the very end. His knowledge of police behavior, criminals, defense attorneys and investigators is deep, the result of years of working in that environment. The author certainly writes what he knows. Hardy and Glitzky have grown during the long series, have had their disasters and triumphs, much like the rest of us, perhaps more dramatically than most lives; maybe not. Anyone who enjoys this genre will be thrilled. I guarantee it.

    In his new life as a bartender at the Little Shamrock, Dismas Hardy is just hoping for a little peace. He's left both the police force and his law career behind. Unfortunately it's not as easy to leave behind the memory of a shattering personal loss - but for the time being, he can always take the edge off with a stiff drink and a round of darts.

    Story

    This is about the seventh book in the Andy Carpenter series, and by now we have come to know the loosely-formed family around Andy. Each case he takes on is interesting, and he always finds ways to tell us things about his dog, Tara, and his dog rescue foundation, The Tara Foundation, run by a guy he sprung from prison on a trumped-up charge. The current case takes Andy into mob territory, which is common for him, despite the fact that he paints himself as something of a schlemiel. What initially looks like two local murders turns into something extremely larger. The very end of the book is another twist of our expectations, which I have come to appreciate from Rosenfelt. Grover Gardner can simply do no wrong. No matter what the subject, he has one of the friendliest, most comfortable voices around, and it is always a pleasure to listen to him. These books are not great literature, and they are not meant to be: they are fun. Period. They may be a bit formulaic, but if you like the formula, as I do, then that just doesn't bother. I also like the quirk that Andy is wealthy and doesn't have to work, meaning that each case he takes on has to grab him in some way. If I won the lottery, as people say, this is what I would do with my life. Turning the books into mass-market successes is the icing on the cake.

    Over the course of his legal career, Andy Carpenter has lost a few cases. But that doesn't mean he forgets his clients. Andy has always been convinced that Joey Desimone, a man convicted of murder nine years ago, was innocent and believes that Joey's family's connections to organized crime played a pivotal role in his conviction. While there isn't much Andy can do for him while he serves out his prison sentence, Joey suggests that he check up on Joey's elderly uncle.

  • "very entertaining"

    Overall

    Grover Gardner and David Rosenfelt are an excellent team. The writing is funny in a consistent way and the reader sells it just right. This is not great literature, as I am sure the author would be the first to admit, but you will have infinitely more fun with it than with 100 famous books one could name. The entire series is entertaining, and, even if you aren't a dog lover, even the dog is a vivid character. It doesn't matter that you know Andy Carpenter will win in the end and get the girl, it's the ride that counts, and this is one I'll be happy to take again, ASAP.

    When a cop's body is found burned and decapitated, the last thing Andy Carpenter expected is for a stranger to waltz into his office and admit to the crime. For the wise-cracking millionaire defense attorney suffering from "lawyer's block", the case looks like a no-brainer...until the cops pick up another suspect: Andy's lead P.I., Laurie Collins, who happens to be the love of his life.

Charles Atkinson's greatest hits:
  • Death on a High Floor

    "Excellent Mystery, Brilliant Narration"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This story revolves around Robert Tarza, a successful and truly snobby 60 year old attorney who finds himself under suspicion of murder. But unlike most central characters, you don't have to identify or even like this man to enjoy his tale. The reason is the astounding characters that surround him, his 30 year old protege and one of the most formidable defense attorneys in L.A.

    Not only is he in deep trouble with the law, his case is further complicated by his own arrogant and naive insistence (and against his defense attorney's advice) on investigating his own case. Worse still, his young protege is a brilliant litigator with no criminal experience who insists on being the lead attorney of the defense team. The tensions between the equally brilliant legal minds Tarza and his team leads to a great deal of humor in an ever more mysterious murder.

    The trial sequences are truly entertaining as they are suspenseful.

    The narration requires the voice of a snob, an impertinent and sexy protege, a frustrated Latino defense attorney, a wise if snarky female judge in prominent roles. He delivers in spades.

    Worth your time? It certainly was for me!

  • Long Knives

    "Disaster on Campus"

    Story

    And it wasn't the murder either. The first book in this series, Death On A High Floor, was clever, witty, had excellent courtroom intrigue, great characters and was brilliantly narrator. This one has not wit, no intrigue, is populated by miserable characters, (foremost the main character), and the narration is monotonous.

    Jen is no longer the brilliant and funny protege, but a stodgy, hyper- sensitive law professor with no friends and no life. Robert is still a snob, but with no sense of humor. Oscar is the only saving grace.

    Don't bother with this one.

  • Cimarron Rose: A Billy Bob Holland Novel, Book 1

    "Burke delivers withanother great mystery/hero!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Where does Cimarron Rose rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    James Lee Burke is perhaps the best author for audible mystery lovers I know of. I'd have to say this one runs a close second to the Hackberry Holland series, my favorite of his works.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cimarron Rose?

    The wonderful interactions of the hero Holland interviewing suspects was a lot of fun, but my favorite moments were his conversations with his dead friend.


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tom caught my attention with his stellar performance in No Country For Old Men. I have loved all of Will Patton's work on most of Burke's novels, therefore I was skeptical over the editors choice of Stechshulte. I needn't have been concerned. He delivered big, so much so, I don't think Patton would have done better.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to this in one day!


    Any additional comments?

    Though this novel has fewer colorful and exagerated characters than Burke's other series, I found it refreshing and it even made for a More realistic and superior mystery. I just don't see how anyone would not enjoy this book.

  • Nothing but the Truth

    "A thoroughly convoluted mystery."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This was a 4.95 special purchase that I almost found enjoyable despite being confused. Granted listening to books encourages us to multitask. This makes it understandable to lose one's way. Nevertheless the narrator should be the equalizer, bringing distinctions of characters and helping the author create suspense.

    I hate to be so negative, so ill just say that in the end, I didn't care what happened, not about the mystery, the characters, relationships, justice, none of it.

    The book opens with a belligerent housewife refusing to testify to a grand jury. She's protecting a friend who has a remarkably complicated secret life that will be exposed if he is indicted in the unrelated murder of his wife. There's devious big oil, single minded political hacks, a candidate for governor, an overzealous D.A., a spiteful judge, broken marriages, murder, kidnapping, child pornography, embezzlement... Just exhausting.

    So it's a 2 star listen, with the caveat I did actually finish the story.

  • "Grisham is back!"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    After several so-so novels and experimenting with different premises, Grisham has returned to his forte, and again excels in courtroom drama. As you would expect, you get an inside and sometimes disturbing peek into the wheels of justice. It was a novel plot and good characterizations--a winner.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.
