    Michael Fiske broke the law when he took Rufus Harms's prison letter from the Supreme Court. But he also sealed his own fate. Now Michael's brother, a cop turned attorney, is coming to Washington to find out why his brother was murdered - and what it had to do with a crime that Rufus Harms committed 25 years before.

    Story

    A good narrator enhances a good book. A great narrator can even make so-so book better.
    Jonathan Marosz has wonderful diction and a pleasant voice but, he has a fault that if corrected would make him a much better narrator. At the beginning of each sentence he vocally sits on the first and sometimes second word which becomes very annoying. I feel certain that he is unaware of this habit and, if advised, it could easily be rectified. While distracting it does not detract from a very interesting story.

    When Martina accuses her ex-boyfriend - the son of a powerful local judge - of assault and battery, no witnesses can be persuaded to testify on her behalf. Guido Guerrieri knows the case could bring his legal career to a premature and messy end, but he cannot resist the appeal of a hopeless cause. Nor can he deny his attraction to Sister Claudia, the young woman in charge of the shelter where Martina is living, who shares his love of martial arts and his virulent hatred of injustice.

    If you could sum up A Walk in the Dark in three words, what would they be?

    Difficult to express how involved you can get in a story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it was compelling.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favorite?

    Guido Guerrieri, a most interesting character, well developed.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "A Lawyers Tale"


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that the author continues with this series and look forward to his next novel. Guido is a very clever advocate. I loved the book.

    Identical, based loosely on the myth of Castor and Pollux, is the story of identical twins, Paul and Cass Giannis, and the complex relationships between their family and their former neighbors, the Kronons. The audiobook focuses principally on events in 2008, when Paul is a candidate for Mayor of Kindle County, and Cass is released from the penitentiary, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Athena Kronon.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have no idea


    Has Identical turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, there are many great authors.


    How could the performance have been better?


    The narrator can only read the written word. If it isn't good neither will be the narration.


    What character would you cut from Identical?

    All of them. They have no identity.


    Any additional comments?

    Please do not neglect to listen to the sample; it does not get any better and it was my mistake. Turow has written good books way back. He should go there and try again..
    He missed here. This book is boring. The reviews are correct.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Hill?

    Dick Hill is great but even he could not save this book.

    Edgar Roy - an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered....

    "Decent Baldacci-poor female narrator"
    Overall

    I preface this review with the statement that I am a Baldacci fan, and that I will purchase and read the book since it is an interesting concept,
    What is the matter with the editorial staff at Audible? You have ruined another Baldacci book with third rate dramatization. Ron McLarty does his usual fine narration and then you add Orlagh Cassidy who is, I mean no offense to her personally, ill equipped for this production or any narrating position. A high school drama student would have done a more professional reading.
    All said I will never purchase another Audible book that is ???dramatized??? and not simply read as in the past. There is an old adage ???if it ain't broke don???t fix it???. Why have you departed from your normal format?
    Unfortunately I purchased The Collectors and The Sixth Man in the same time frame and did not realize that this was another "pseudo drama" and not a straight narration. You do McLarty a great disservice. I have 162 novels in my Library, more than a casual listener, but I will never purchase another if I see that it is not straight narration and I certainly will pay attention to the perceptive and excellent reviews. They are really on the money.

    The U.S. Speaker of the House is assassinated in a terrifyingly precise execution in the heart of Washington, D.C. In a quieter corner of the nation's capital, the rare book room of the Library of Congress, a reclusive, wealthy scholar drops dead under mysterious circumstances that leave no clues. Following on the heels of the natural death of the Speaker of the House, the city and the nation begin to tremble.

    I should have paid attention to the existing reviews. Perhaps it is an interesting book but it is hard to tell the narration is so distracting.
    Waste of my time and money and it is too frustrating to even finish..

Damon Pierce's life has just reached a defining moment: a gifted California lawyer, he's being divorced by his wife and his work often seems soulless. Then he receives a frantic e-mail from Marissa Brand Okari - a woman he loved years ago - and decides to risk everything to respond to her plea for help.

    The previous reviewer is correct-the story is very "thin".
    Probably would have had more reviews if the srory had been better. Not up to Flynn's standard.
