    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.

    The Redeemer is the 6 th in the series, but you don't have to follow the books in order. It is another riveting suspense/ mystery / thriller from Nesbo. I think it is every bit as good as The Snowman, Devil's Star and The Bat.

    Once again Nesbo exposes Harry Hole as the brilliant, vulnerable, articulate detective we know him to be. The mystery itself is complicated and entirely unique.

    John Lee does an outstanding job reading. The audio version is dedicated to the memory of Robin Sachs, who died earlier this year.

    I realize this review assumes you have some experience or knowledge of this series. If you don't, investigate the series further and start where you like. All I can say is that Jo Nesbo is the best novelist in this genre I've ever read.

    Christmas shoppers stop to hear a Salvation Army concert on a crowded Oslo street. An explosion cuts through the music and the bitter cold: One of the singers falls dead, shot in the head at point-blank range. Harry Hole - the Oslo Police Department’s best investigator and worst civil servant - has little to work with: no suspect, no weapon, and no motive. But Harry’s troubles will multiply. As the search closes in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate, and Harry’s chase takes him to the most forbidden corners of the former Yugoslavia. Yet it’s when he returns to Oslo that he encounters true darkness....

    It's safe to say this is not my favorite in the Will Trent series, but by no means do I regret this purchase. Few writers have the skill to create characters so engrossing you feel like they are family. Two other great authors who happen to be my favorites, James Lee Burke and Jo Nesbo, share Slaughter's remarkable gift of story telling. But I can't imagine knowing anyone like Dave Robicheaux, Clete Purcell or Harry Hole.

    Will Trent and the whole cast of characters in this series are complex and intriguing. I just don't tire of listening. Continuing on my baseball analogy, Broken is another double.

Kathi's greatest hits:
  • Just One Evil Act: A Lynley Novel, Book 18

    "Good, but not up to standards of previous books"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I've been feeling increasingly disappointed by Elizabeth George's books. It seems as though there was no such thing as a bad Lynley novel "back in the day." But lately, I find myself wondering if someone else is ghost-writing them for her. It feels like whatever held them together in the beginning--some of the chemistry between the characters, and the coherence of the plots--has slipped a little.

    That being said--in fairness felt I should be honest--they are still Lynley and Havers--and I've grown to love them so much over the years that even with a little fading of the original charm, they are still good reads (listens). In this one, we get more of a look at Barbara Havers--unmarried and childless, but who has grown very fond of her little neighbor over the course of several books. She learns with genuine anguish first that the child has been kidnapped by her mother, then that she has simply been kidnapped for real. That's a good plot line--and had many possibilities. But gosh, is the book ever long! Was there an editor on the job here? And then, while I enjoy books that have occasional foreign language comments inserted here & there--in this one (for completely baffling reasons) the author has characters speak whole conversations in Italian (with no translation provided). Someone who speaks the language might have really liked that--I don't, and I didn't.

    Davina Porter is a wonderful narrator--yet she lacked something in reading this. I imagined that even she didn't know what to do with the book. And, just to be clear--I am saying some things that another reader might want to know about before deciding on purchasing this book. But I still enjoyed it--as it is a (weaker) but still excellent read, due to the fact that the whole series, with the development of characters up till now, carries this book in ways that a stand-alone novel could not have done on it's own.

    I hope that Eliz George will be reading the comments of her long & faithful fans, and maybe do some better editing of the next Lynley novel--which even though this one was not quite up to par--I still anticipate with pleasure.

  • Disturbing the Dead: A Rachel Goddard Mystery, Book 2

    "Very good mystery"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Rachel Goddard is a veterinarian who has left hectic Northern Virginia after some sort of tragedy (that is not fully spelled out in this book--which is the second in the series). She has relocated herself to rural Virginia where she has opened a veterinary clinic and is trying to rebuild her life. While it is good that the author did not reveal too much about the first book (so as not to spoil it for people who want to go back and read it next)--listening to this one, out of sequence, was only because the first is not available on Audible (don't know why, hope it will be soon).

    However, this book works well as a stand-alone. I didn't understand what had taken place before, but it did not get in the way of feeling that this is quite good as it is. It involves a case in which the bones of a Melungeon woman (a mixed race culture that has been in the Virginia/North Carolina area for a very long time) are discovered on a mountain, which re-opens an old cold case. For Deputy Tom Bridger, this is very personal, because his now-deceased father had worked this case before his death. So he feels very invested in solving it.

    However, he must find a way to manage age-old racist attitudes towards the Melungeons--which is partly his own heritage--and the suspicion they have of the whites who have always looked down upon them in order to find the killer. As he begins his investigation, he discovers Holly, the young niece of the murdered woman, living in fear--though he isn't totally certain why--and tries to help her escape her situation by bringing her to work in Rachel's animal clinic, and also live with her.

    I think the whole book is really quite good. The part about the Melungeons is fascinating--I have known about them for most of my life, and found the mysteries about their background and heritage fascinating. I think that is what attracted me to this book in the first place. However, there were parts that were sort of a stretch for me in the story. While it was necessary for Holly to live with Rachel for the whole thing to play out, it was quite challenging to imagine that Rachel would have been so protective of this young woman when she, herself, appears to have been dealing with her own fears from what happened in the previous book.

    However, that aside, the story works well, the characters are vividly portrayed, the development and details of the area and people very interesting. I recommend this as a very good read--and look forward to finding more books by Sandra Parshall. I also liked the narration performed by Tavia Gilbert.

  • A Suitable Vengeance: Inspector Lynley, Book 4

    "Vintage Lynley -- 1991 was a VERY good year!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book belongs in the annals of the "good old days" of Thomas Lynley novels. Obviously, characters and situations change in series--but in reading this book (about the 4th or 5th in the series) I was reminded how very much this series has altered over the years, not always for the best. Many of the main people in the more recent books were never even a part of the early ones. And these are the characters that we originally got to know and love--sadly, they rarely, if ever, appear any more.

    That being said, this book opens with Inspector Thomas Lynley (who is actually Lord Asherton) bringing his fiancee to his ancestral home, to celebrate his engagement. Murder presents itself fairly quickly, and Lynley finds himself trying to handle this new challenge.

    Present are those whom I consider to be the core characters of the early books--Deborah Cotter & her father, who is the butler for Simon Allcourt-St.James, Helen Clyde--who assists in police investigations (and will become more important in future books) and Lynley's family. This book in particular lays out more of the back story of who Lynley is, how he has come to have some attitudes that show up in other books but with fewer explanations. And frankly, just as a mystery novel, this one is far superior to her more recent selections. I've read every one--am a great fan of the series--but I had forgotten how much more engaging the early ones were.

    Somewhere along the line, Elizabeth George decided to go in a different direction with characters and plots. I understand change happens, but I sure do miss these old, original books. Plan to listen to them all for the sheer pleasure of the interaction among this set of people. Just one tiny thing--Davina Porter, who is an exceptionally good narrator, does not seem at her best in this one. I found a few of the voices uncomfortable to listen to--however, not so much that I would lower the stars because of it. She is still a very good reader of this book. Highly recommend!

  • Jar City

    "Well crafted mystery"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This was my first book by Arnaldur Indridason and I'll admit that at first I was drawn to it because I so love to listen to George Guidall's narration, so thought I would try it. I haven't read too many Icelandic novels, so didn't know what to expect. Happily--the result was unexpectedly good.

    It begins with the uncomplicated-appearing murder of an old man in Reykjavík. There are a couple of clues that give it an odd sense, but Inspector Erlendur cannot yet imagine what he will be facing as he and his police team set out to try to solve it. This mystery has so many twists and turns that it stays moving at a good pace. The settings change over the course of the story, so that it has a feeling of wandering into entirely unexpected territory, ultimately that which deals with the name of the book (Jar City).

    I will have to say that listening to unfamiliar Icelandic names was hard (even with a really helpful explanation of them in the beginning), but the story was well told. It related a bit about Erlendur's personal life (which I assume will be developed in subsequent books), but in general, just a good mystery. I would not give it 5 stars, but it was solidly good with what seems like potential to develop into something even better.

    Listening to a James Lee Burke novel with Will Patton narrating and Dave Robicheaux as the lead character is like visiting an old friend. You know you are going to have a great time and Creole Belle didn't disappoint. Patton's narration is great and he really brings the characters to life. The story gives you a good feel of what life in southern Louisiana must be like, although without all the crime and seedy characters maybe, but who knows? Burke is great at character development and I love his insights into human beings and life in general. And, Dave Robicheaux and Clete Purcell are two characters unlike any others. I'll look forward to the next Burke novel, be it set in Louisiana or Texas. And, when the author decides to hang it up, it'll be a sad day.

    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.

Worse still, in the ensuing manhunt she'll be partnered with Maggie Lawson, a cop with her own ax to grind.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.
