  • "Really Fast Paced Sci Fi!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a sci-fi thriller that had me guessing while on the edge of my seat. It started off realistic enough, but quickly morphed into the sci-fi thriller it is. I was expecting a thriller realistically pushing the edge of technology somewhat like Crichton's Disclosure did in 1994, but Suarez goes way beyond realism in Daemon. Nevertheless, the storyline is entirely unique for this reader

    The plot seems to be the end of the world as we know it, but clever enough to wonder if there is something more we do not understand.

    The narration is excellent.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    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.

In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

  • Gone Girl: A Novel

    "It Doesn't Get Any More 'Noir' Than This"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is an incredible book. WIthout the slightest bit of fantasy or hyperbole, the author shows the reader that the real demons are those inside of us. It's difficult to write about the unparalleled brilliance of this story arc, it's sidebars and underlayers, and the author's out-of-the-box imagining of the characters, without hugely spoiling. It's a bit techno-thriller, a bit relationship commentary, and there is a lot of narrative whiplash where the story takes a sharp turn and you're left with "well, I didn't see that one coming".

    The author's writing style couldn't be more sophisticated and loaded with complex imagery and phraseology - I found myself writing down word-bytes that were just off-the-charts clever and overflowing with wit.

    While it's possible to pick up an anti-elitist vibe, it's all done with humor and mastery. Then on the other hand, there's an anti "average" vibe, critiquing those whose middle of the road lives seem to the main character as achieving a degree of dullness that is beyond belief. It's a dual message, but it's navigated delicately by the author. Wealthy big city snobbery is mixed with a huge putdown of the predictable choices made by the affluent.

    Both narrators picked the perfect tone for this reading.

    It's a great listen, and I did not want it to end. And actually - in a way, it doesn't. The two main characters are caught in a trap of their own making.

  • The Last Juror

    "Not quite as advertised..."

    Overall

    This novel is more a series a vignettes or short stories than a serious courtroom thriller. I found myself caught up in the initial murder case but then led astray with all sorts of sidebars and meanderings into Southern culture, the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War, elements which I had thought were intended as background scenery but which unexpectedly became the main characters. If you do not find these topics of consuming interest you will soon be yawning and hitting the fast-forward button on your iPod. However, the trademark Grisham gifts abound and the narrator does an excellent job of characterization and rendering various Southern dialects. It's a good "listen", just not in the best-of-Grisham class.

  • The Killer's Wife: A Novel

    "Great Concept"

    Overall

    This story line has excellent potential, although I feel the author could have done a little more with the wife's perspective. Perhaps developing a more introspective psychological narrative along the lines of the movie "Sleeping With The Enemy".

    The matter-of-fact writing, the lack of character development and the over-developed histrionics of the narrator rendered my rating a three out of five. I simply became tired of listening to her constant sobbing, as I am a reader/listener who prefers a more straightforward reading. I don't read hardcover books with emotion and accents, and I don't like listening to them interpreted that way.

    But I must add, though that the narrator did a great job portraying the North Carolina drawl, and how bizarre it must have sounded to a woman from California.

    Still an entertaining tale, however, and I would recommend it.


  • Burn: An Anna Pigeon Mystery, Book 16

    "Not the usual Nevada Barr"

    Overall

    I found this book a difficult read mostly because of the story line. Well, you know what they say about expectations, right? I was expecting another whodunit where Anna Pigeon negotiates the staff and incidental characters who populate one of the national parks. Her stories are always resplendent with details of the natural setting, giving an authentic and integrative feel to the narrative.

    This is another type of story altogether. Looks like Barr has abandoned the good old-fashioned linear narrative and uses a more artsy, impressionistic delivery. This seems to be in vogue, as most of the books I've read lately use this technique. While I am sure this makes great sense from the author's point of view, and certainly from an aesthetic point of view, however, it does not make for enjoyable reading, nor does it offer character development. Hard to tell what was actually going on half of the time. Just present-tense impressions and inner dialog.This might work for a painting, since it is mostly texture, but it doesn't work for me in a story.

  • "Politics, Pornography, and Murder"

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    The Prey series continues with another solid Lucas Davenport "mystery"--although it's not really a mystery as we know from the beginning who did it, what was done, and why they did it. The fun part is riding along with Lucas and the gang while they figure it out and get the culprits.

    The author has lightened up on his gruesome, bloody, murder scenes which I remember so vividly in his early novels. However, the witty banter and close relationships shared by Lucas and his fellow detectives and cops are still a big part of his stories. These guys really seem to like their jobs, and truly like each other, which is part of their appeal.

    This one is set on the political stage as Lucas is called in to find out if there are dirty tricks being played in a new Senate race. It starts out with allegations of pornography and develops into murder. This isn't the best John Sandford, but it did have enough intrigue and interesting characters to keep me listening. As with any series, there is a chance of becoming tired of the same type of storyline unless the author steps it up somehow, and I would like to see something new in his next one.

    Recommended for any long time Davenport fans, as well as new readers. If you're new to this series, starting from the beginning will introduce you to family members and friends as they developed over the years, however, this is fine as a stand alone novel.

    Very early one morning, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he’s waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, "Hey, I think he’s breathing." And another voice says, "Yeah? Give me the bat." And that’s the last thing he knows. Davenport is investigating another case when the trail leads to the man’s disappearance, then - very troublingly - to the Minneapolis police department, then - most troublingly of all - to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.
