    Story

    Having read many of the installments in the Davenport series, I was a little surprised that the usual cast of family and law enforcement characters were minimized in this novel. It was all about Lucas and the characters created for this particular story. And it worked. Carl wasn't very believable but this was tempered somewhat by grandpa who was a great character and who allowed us to believe that maybe Carl could be someone in the real world. I liked Nadia and wouldn't mind seeing her in other Davenport installments (although I'm not sure exactly where this book falls chronologically in the series). As always, narrator Richard Ferrone was superb. His delivery is impeccable, especially when portraying low-life characters. This was not the best Davenport novel I've listened to but it was well worth my time.

    Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan.

    Story

    Of the more than 200 titles I've listened to through Audible, mostly in the mystery/thriller genre, The First Deadly Sin has made my Top Ten List. It doesn't matter that it was set in the 1970s. The plot, character development and flow of the story made me forget this was a 25-hour book. I could have listened for another 25 hours. If I had one criticism it was that the conclusion was somewhat anticlimactic. But this criticism is a minor one. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Jeffery Deaver based several of his "evil characters" in the Lincoln Rhyme series with Sanders' mountain-climbing Daniel Blank. If you're tempted, as I was, to watch the movie of the same name (Sinatra's last starring role as Delaney), forget it. The movie is horrible and probably the worst adaptation of any book in the history of the world. I'm now almost finished with The Second Deadly Sin and will likely continue with the series.

And one cop, Captain Ed Delaney must solve a series of bizarre, gruesome murders that defy logic or method. This shocking story has captured the imaginations of millions like no other modern thriller.

  • "Glad I tried another Bosch book"

    Overall

    I listened to A Darkness More Than Night a while back and I was not impressed. After I reviewed the book I said I would listen to another with a different narrator. Both the narrator (Dick Hill) and the story made this book an excellent listen. I am used to hearing Hill and his superb narration in Lee Child's Jack Reacher series. His work here too is commendable. More than just the narration, Connelly introduces Bosch as both a likable and roguish police detective whose ways seem more suited to those of a private eye. This story had the right amount of everything; romance, misdirection, tragedy, vindication, bad guys, victims, flawed characters and you name it. I will listen to another Harry Bosch novel, especially if Hill did the narration. This was purchased on an Audible sale and was the best value I received in more than three years. It would have been well worth a credit.

    "Gripping Page Turner!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    When the prologue makes me hold my breath, and the first chapter keeps me on the edge of my seat, I know I can expect a well thought out thriller. Great narrator too!

    Crais introduces us to a new hero in this book-a very likable 32 year old LAPD policeman, He and his partner, Stephanie, stumble upon a car accident and violent altercation on a quiet street. In trying to intervene Stephanie is killed, and Scott is severely wounded.

    Scott eventually gets a new partner- a four legged one. It's hard to make a dog one of the central characters in any book, but Crais does it beautifully. The dog, Maggie, and Scott become a K9 team. Both horribly wounded in the line of duty, they are both written off as "damaged goods" - an evaluation that Scott and Maggie prove to be wrong as they depend upon each other in the search for those who killed Stephanie.

    I learned a lot from this book about the care, concern, and respect for K9 dogs by fellow officers--and a lot about the training and close bonds that are formed. They are amazing animals.

    A very worthy read by Robert Crais!

    Story

    To tell the truth, at first I didn't think I was going to like this book--and I was surprised because I have loved all Nesbo's previous novels. It started out kind of slow, but interesting--just didn't grab me at the beginning--which did happen with The Snowman and The Leopard. However, just as I was about to put it away for the night, WHAM---it takes off and never stops. I ended up listening to it for hours. A fast paced, entertaining, and intelligent thriller, it may be Jo Nesbo's best yet.

    The main plot is woven in and out with several sub-plots, and plenty of surprising twists. Even though Harry is now a former police officer, he comes back from Hong Kong to help Oleg, the son of his long time love interest, Rakel. Oleg has been arrested for murder, but Harry is convinced he is innocent. It becomes a dangerous investigation that pulls him into the violent and gritty drug world in Oslo. An extremely desirable new drug, "violin", is being sold on the streets - and some people will do anything to get it. We are used to Harry getting into situations that leave him bloody, bruised, and mangled, and this novel is no different. The "cringe factor" is definitely present.

    Well worth the credit. You won't be disappointed-but you WILL be left with a lot to think about. I didn't see the surprise end coming--can't wait to see what happens in the next book.

  • Just One Evil Act: A Lynley Novel, Book 18

    "Not a True LYNLEY Novel, but still- - - -"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Elizabeth George and her Lynley series have kept me entertained for years--and I was really looking forward to this one. It seemed to run off the track a bit from what is typically expected with Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers solving crimes and bailing each other out of all sorts of situations.

    This story is mostly based on Barbara's neighbor, Azhar, and his missing daughter, Hadiyyah. She was taken to Italy by her mother, Angelina.

    Barbara jumps in with both feet to help him get Hadiyyah back. Ignoring her superiors orders not to get involved (this is nothing new) she seems to lose all sense of reason and concern for her own life and job this time--and Lynley is not a great deal of help.

    One source of frustration in the first half of the book are the Italian phrases which are never translated for the reader, even though I could sort of understand what was being said from the rest of the conversation. Still, it was almost enough to make me stop listening--almost. The second half was much better and after all was said and done, an interesting story.

    I haven't given up on this series yet--however--if the next novel doesn't return to some of the flavor of the original Lynley novels, it will probably be my last.

  • Cemetery Dance

    "booooooring!"

    Overall

    I must start by saying I love the wonderful novels by Preson and Child's, and always look forward to their future collaborations! This novel had wonderful potential (ZOMBIES- what could be spookier?)- but it just didn't come through. What happened to Agent Pendergast? In this book he is just a, well- - an ORDINARY person. There was none of his "magical" sly maneuvers to get the ill-fated characters out of their predicaments! The story overall was not at all up to the usual suspense that permeated their prior novels. It was disappointing to settle in for a good, intelligent thriller, to only be bored to death. The one bright spot was the narrator- who was great as usual.

    I have read every word the man has published (that I was able to find) and this one really got to me. When one reads Burke, the plot is nearly superfluous as he paints flawless dioramas of life, its beauty, its evil, its life-giving and its life-taking and many of the nuanced, indelible connections twix the two.
    I used to think his ending were weak. But now I understand there are no 'endings', just pauses where one can reflect or suffer.
    His brief description of withdrawal from drug/alcohol addiction was crystalline in its accuracy. My soul ached as I read it.
    One of the few authors where it absolutely does not matter where in his bibliography you start. There are simply pauses in between.

He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s.

    In Naked Prey, John Sandford puts Lucas Davenport through some changes. His old boss, Rose Marie Roux, has moved up to the state level and taken Lucas with her. In addition, Lucas is now married and a new father, both of which are fine with him: He doesn't mind being a family man. But he is a little worried. For every bit of peace you get, you have to pay - and he's waiting for the bill. It comes in the form of two people found hanging from a tree in the woods of northern Minnesota. What makes it particularly sensitive is that the bodies are of a black man and a white woman, and they're naked....
