I am an avid eclectic reader.
This is book one in the Beaumont series. I have read some of the newer books in the series, so it was great to read the first book. It answers a number of questions about people that were briefly mention in passing in the new books such as Ann, and how Beaumont got his money. This book had more sex than the usual Jance novel I am glad she toned that down in the newer books. Liked the description of Seattle it like a mini trip to the city. Over all enjoyed the book now I will look for number two in the series.
Over the years I have read almost all of the Griffin books. He is one of my favorite military authors. I see now that all the books are being released on audiobooks. I decided to take the opportunity to read/listen to the books I had missed reading in the past. This book was on my list. W.E.B. Griffin takes a real situation based on history and inserts his fictional characters right along side the real historical people thus making the story very real. Eric G. Dove did a great job narrating the story. It is the first time I have heard him narrate. Most of Griffins books prior to this series were based on WWII stories. This series moves into the cold war period with Che Guevara the Cuban communist activist. Lots of flying and action in the story. Some foul language but no explicit sex as per Griffins usual method of writing. If you are a fan of military novels or a history buff you will enjoy this story. Griffin also is precise in following military protocols in this story including the famous military top secret memo format. In this book he sums up the ending of the story via after action reports and memos to Felter.
This book is written by two authors I have read over the years and enjoyed. Mary Higgins Clark has been writing stand alone novels for over forty years many which have become best sellers. Alafair Burke is the daughter of author Jamie Lee Burke. Alafair is a law professor and an author in her own right.
“The Cinderella Murder” is to be the first book in a new series. The story will continue Mary Higgins Clark’s story of television producer Laurie Moran’s investigation of cold case murders. In this book the show investigates the decades old murder of a beautiful UCLA student whose body was found in the Hollywood Hills missing a shoe. The murder was dubbed the “Cinderella Case” by the press.
I have found that both authors imbue their novels with unbelievable suspense and that follows through in this story. When I started reading the book I found I could not stop, good thing the audio book was only about 8 hours long. The book is fast moving and riveting. If you enjoy mystery stories you will love this one. Jan Maxwell narrated the book.
