    It's June in Montreal, and Dr. Temperance Brennan, who has left a shaky marriage back home in North Carolina to take on the challenging assignment of Director of Forensic Anthropology for the province of Quebec, looks forward to a relaxing weekend in beautiful Quebec City. First, though, she must stop at a newly uncovered burial site in the heart of the city. The remains are probably old and only of archeological interest, but Tempe must make sure they're not a case for the police. One look at the decomposed and decapitated corpse, stored neatly in plastic bags, tells her she'll spend the weekend in the crime lab.

    What did you love best about Deja Dead?

    I was really, really looking forward to listening to the entire collection! However I just could not get beyond the first hour...i tried-i really did! The Reader is worse than awful. She is way too slow, tries too hard to make it exciting. I cant even judge the story because i found my teeth grinding listening to her. Sadly, this is my first and last book read by this Reader. I have even written her name down so i dont purchase any further reads by her.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dan Brown

    A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than 200 personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists - both famous and less well known - and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

    What made the experience of listening to Going Clear the most enjoyable?

    The content was so intense I couldnt put it down. It was written in a really easy manner to grasp. The content did not go over your head or double talked you. You actually felt like you were there experiencing the story first hand.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    That no holds barred was instituted-good, bad and ugly The story was presented without bias.


    Have you listened to any of Morton Sellers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry!! Because i cant believe people actually opt for this type of lifestyle. Lives were ruined, children are dragged through this garbage -whole families were torn apart! And as for the celebrities-i dont think i will ever watch a Tom Cruise movie again!!


    Any additional comments?

    I read it because i enjoy learning about things i really know nothing about! This was a real eye opener. I could not put it down!!

    Story

    An unidentified nude female sits propped against a fountain in Central Park. There are no signs of struggle. When Dr. Kay Scarpetta and her colleagues Benton Wesley and Pete Marino arrive on the scene, they instantly recognize the signature of serial killer Temple Brooks Gault. Scarpetta, on assignment with the FBI, visits the New York City morgue on Christmas morning, where she must use her forensic expertise to give a name to the nameless - a difficult task. But as she sorts through conflicting forensic clues, Gault claims his next victim.

    Would you listen to From Potters Field again? Why?

    I love the Kay Scarpetta series. The characters are so real and come to life!


    Any additional comments?

    The Kay Scarpetta series is so captivating I generally listen to the book a couple of times. They are so entertaining and enthralling that once I start a title it is hard to put it down! By the end of the story I am sad to see it end. The events are believable, the reader of the stories really bring the characters to life. I am glad it is always CJ Critt who reads because she keeps the characters from one book to the next. I cannot name one other reader off the top of my head-that is how much I enjoy listening to her and I have over 160 titles in my library! You can listen to them out of order and the story quickly fills in for you, however I am currently going through the series in chronological order. Anytime someone mentions needing a good book to read, I always recommend the entire series!
