I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

  • "A good listen"

    Overall

    I appreciate her "sense of place" details from both MN and the Donegal coast. The links with traditional music and folklore make this a satisfying listen. I enjoyed the narration a great deal. I loved the Irish acsent and then the American it really seperated the charaters. I would highly recommend this book.

    American pathologist Nora Gavin fled to Ireland three years ago, hoping that distance from home would bring her peace. Though she threw herself into the study of bog bodies and the mysteries of their circumstances, she was ultimately led back to the one mystery she was unable to solve: the murder of her sister, Trona. Nora cant move forward until she goes backback to her home, to the scene of the crime, to the source of her nightmares and her deepest regrets.

    She's young. She's beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston medical examiner Cat Novak, betrays no secrets - except for a notebook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Cat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the city streets: a shadowy madman without mercy or apparent motive. The police are sceptical. The mayor won't listen. And Cat's chief suspect is one of the city's most prominent citizens.

  • "I like the book"

    Overall

    This was my third Tess Gerritsen novel and I like her style. The details are accurate without going into too much depth so it stayed interesting. I was afraid it might get too gruesome, but she takes you to the edge without going too far. The character development is great and the narrator excellent. You can really visualise what is happening.

Red Emma's greatest hits:
  • Nineteen Eighty Three: Red Riding Quartet

    "The long awaited for finish!"

    Overall

    I got through all four of books within 2 weeks. (Which is saying a lot for a working mother!) After having the first 3 under my belt I could not wait to see how everything wove together. I loved how David Peace went back and forth between the time periods (especially back to "1974") and I was able to piece more layers into those previous stories and characters. You really realize at the end just how many different characters and years this story spanned, which was really unique to my literary experience. It is not a pretty story, but the characters will stay with me for a long time and I am sure I will revisit Yorkshire in the years from 1974-1983 in my mind many times from now on.

  • Nineteen Seventy Four: Red Riding Quartet

    "I loved it"

    Overall

    I loved the character of Eddie Dunford. I found the first book the least "poetic" of the four. Saul Reichlin is a billiant narrator!

  • Nineteen Eighty: Red Riding Quartet

    "Poor Peter Hunter"

    Overall

    This part of the series has the most sympathetic charcter in Peter Hunter; a good but flawed man trying to do the right thing in a wrong world. The ending of this book shocked me the most out of all four. Again, Saul Reichlin is brilliant.

  • Nineteen Seventy Seven: Red Riding Quartet

    "A rough trip so bring a cushion!"

    Overall

    Wow. I have read all of the Marquis de Sade's books so I thought nothing could really shock me but David Peace's "1977" managed to do just that. His portrayal of the absolute worst in people is epic and really hard to digest. I physically felt ill a couple of times. I wasn't sure that I was going to be able to make it through the whole recording but am I glad I did. The story and the characters really drew me in and I was actually sad when the recording ended. Saul Reichlin is an absolutley perfect narrator. I am already starting on "1980".

I am a voracious reader (average about 4-5 Audible books a week, in addition to those I "eyeball".) I have been hooked on recorded books since the time of cassettes/CDs and was thrilled when I became an Audible member in 2007. I find reader reviews good guides to spending my credits, so have finally decided to write a few (although, I would rather be reading!)

  • "Decent debut British Police Procedural"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    From the blurb, I thought I would love this novel, as I am a big fan of British mysteries, especially police procedurals. However, I never really related to any of the characters and there was no "mystery," as we are introduced to the villain's point of view (POV) early on. The shifting POV was a bit jarring occasionally (from victim to police to villain to witness and back to police) and the narrative voices seemed a bit unrealistic at times.

    Despite the choppy writing and the underdeveloped characters, I would probably purchase the next book in this series, as I believe the writer will continue to improve her product.

    Lucy Price-Lewis, the narrator, did a good job of differentiating the many characters.

She believes the body may be that of infamous Victorian murderess Jemima Green. Called Mother Hook for her claw-like hand, Jemima was hanged in 1867 for the murder of five children in her care. DCI Harry Nelson has no time for long-dead killers. Immersed in the case of three infants found dead, one after the other, in their King’s Lynn home, he’s convinced that a family member is responsible, though others on his team think differently.
