  • "Simply the Best Detective Series In..."

    Story

    If this isn't your first Harry Hole novel, all you really need to know that Police is every bit as good as Snowman, The Bat and Devil's Star. And it's read by the best British narrator, john Lee.

    If you've never listened to a book by Jo Nesbo, now is the time to start. It's the best in its genre including all the great American and British works. The police work is gritty, meticulous, competitive and brilliant. The story is simply magnificent. It's mystery is unique and, well, mysterious.

    Sometimes I hate reviewing books because I simply cannot devote the time to do it justice.
    Do yourself a favor and listen to Police.

His dedication to his job and his brilliant insights have saved the lives of countless people. But now, with those he loves most facing terrible danger, Harry is not in a position to protect anyone.

    Story

    I listened to this just after finishing Broken Harbor by Tana French. In my review of that book I made reference to part of the story being far fetched. Perhaps I should have said inaccurate, because Fear Nothing may be strange subject matter, but it delivers remarkably entertaining suspense.

    If you are familiar with the former great Indianapolis Colt coach Tony Dungy you may know his son Jordan has the same genetic disorder as the main character in this book. A while back, Dungy gave a speech entitled The Blessing of Pain, about his youngest son, Jordan, who has a rare condition that doesn’t allow him to feel pain. If you haven't read it, it's well worth your time to look it up online. In Fear Nothing, Gardner goes into great detail describing just how dangerous and cumbersome this defect really is.

    Our heroine, D.D.Warren suffers a terrible injury that threatens her career. She's forced into months of excruciatingly painful physical therapy, which lands her in the care of Psychiatrist who specializes in pain management. Ironically this doctor has this genetic disorder that prevents her from feeling pain.

    But that's not the doctor's only issue. She is the daughter of a notorious serial killer, long dead, and her big sister is in prison for following in their dad's footsteps. Through a series of murderous events, these two professional women are forced to hunt a serial killer bent on their destruction. It's complicated, but it works!

    I found this novel fascinating and extremely entertaining. Gardner is not only a great writer, her research is impeccable.

    The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear… She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

    This is my favorite series in this genre and my favorite book in the series. It answers many mysteries concerning Harry Hole's history while exposing the detctive's peculiar genius.

    This reader is my favorite, though I liked Robin Sachs. He does a brilliant job with the different voices, especially.a drunk Harry Hole.

    This is the story of the case that made Harry famous, the Australian serial killer case.

    Harry is out of his depth. Detective Harry Hole is meant to keep out of trouble. A young Norwegian girl taking a gap year in Sydney has been murdered, and Harry has been sent to Australia to assist in any way he can. He's not supposed to get too involved. When the team unearths a string of unsolved murders and disappearances, nothing will stop Harry from finding out the truth. The hunt for a serial killer is on, but the murderer will talk only to Harry. He might just be the next victim.

Stevon's greatest hits:
  • The Neon Rain: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    "Where it all began..."

    Overall

    Several years ago I discovered James Lee Burke and Dave Robicheaux and became a fan. I started working my way backwards in the stories reading the new ones that came out as well. So, it was a nice surprise when I discovered Audible had released a book written in 1987, remember the days before cell phones, pc's, hand held devies? Anyway, this was hard hitting from the beginning, gave good insight into the background of Dave, in this book he's still a NOPD detective and Clete Purcell and he hadn't bonded the way they do later. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and blew right through it in just a few days. Now where do I go from here?

  • Act of Treason

    "My first Flynn"

    Overall

    I've always liked spy thrillers but it seemed most I've been reading have written by European authors, mostly British. I'd been wanting to find a good American author to read, came across Vince Flynn and decided to give him a try. Was it the greatest book ever written? No. But, it was an enjoyable listen and I'll read him again, maybe my next listen. The action was fast paced and you wanted to keep listening to hear what was going to happen, isn't that what you want out of a book? It was entertaining!

  • The Man Who Smiled

    "The Mankell Trilogy"

    Overall

    I feel like I've just finished an Henning Mankell trilogy; Dogs of Riga, White Lioness, and now The Man Who Smiled. I must admit I enjoyed them all. I guess now I"ll have to go back to his first book and then hope that the later Wallander stories show up on Audible. In Man Who Smiled, the author again delves into the human side of Kurt Wallander and he has many of the same feelings we all do, at least I know I do. I always thought the weather in Sweden would suck and in reading these books that's affirmed unless you like living somewhere where it's foggy, rainy, cold a good portion of the time. The mystery flows pretty well, too, sometimes it seems the story moves slowly as the investigation plays out but Mankell does make the story interesting. Sometimes you think what is Kurt Wallander doing but it does make for an interesting tale.

  • The Devil's Star

    "My 2nd Nesbo"

    Overall

    Story

    This is a great book, intense, a page turner. Nesbo is a very imaginative author, he tells a good, tight story with good human insight. I can't wait for my next one.

  • "Eve is growing."

    12 of 13 helpful votes

    I really liked this book and would have given it 5 stars but for the graphic violence. There is a lot about the killer and his mentality - probably too much, but I fault the editor for that. I found myself removing my earbuds during the violent scenes - so be warned. But I loved how Eve has come to value the people in her life more than her career. I love the family - especially the football game and Granny fussing at Roarke. It was funny and touching. It sets the scene for the books ahead we all crave.

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

On warm summer mornings he sits on a bench holding a small book, The Balm in Gilead, in his large hands. "There is a balm in Gilead," his neighbor Clara Morrow reads from the dust jacket, "to make the wounded whole." While Gamache doesn't talk about his wounds and his balm, Clara tells him about hers. Peter, her artist husband, has failed to come home. Failed to show up as promised on the first anniversary of their separation. She wants Gamache's help to find him. Having finally found sanctuary, Gamache feels a near revulsion at the thought of leaving Three Pines. "There’s power enough in Heaven," he finishes the quote as he contemplates the quiet village, "to cure a sin-sick soul." And then he gets up. And joins her.

The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's desolate Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his family's sinister past.

And after 15 years in prison, he's out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G-8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.
