    Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and he is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before - when Will's father was imprisoned for murder - this was his home....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Criminal to be better than the print version?

    Yes. This is the first audio book of hers that I've listened to. The performance was strong and helped the characters and plot believable


    Which character – as performed by Kathleen Early – was your favorite?

    While Amanda is a difficult personality, the contrast between the young Amanda and the older Amanda gives us an interesting dichotomy


    Any additional comments?

    I like Slaughter's books and their setting in the south. The barriers that women faced even in the mid 70's were amazing. I'm not a fan of flashbacks, but Slaughter makes it work and answers a lot of questions about her characters

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    I enjoyed the other Dan Brown books, so bought this one as soon as it was available. What a waste. I struggled to get through it and only finished it to be able to say I had read the whole thing......Save your money for a good John Sandford

    Hollywood homicide detective Petra Connor has helped psychologist Alex Delaware crack tough cases in the past. And in Jonathan Kellerman's New York Times best seller Billy Straight, she took the lead in the desperate hunt for a teenage runaway stalked by a vengeful murderer. Now the complex and wryly compassionate Petra is once again at the center of the action, in a novel of cunning twists and page-turning suspense.

    Woody says: "Vintage Kellerman"
    "Dont waste your time"
    Overall

    We bought this for a long trip over Christmas for entertainment and to keep us awake. That was a serious mistake. This is the most boring Kellerman I've read (listened to). The detail wanders all over everywhere and the plot was practically invisible.

    Save your money and get the DeMille

    When his brief, passionate romance with nurse Jocelyn Banks is cut short by her kidnapping and brutal murder, Dr. Jeremy Carrier is left emotionally devastated, haunted by his lover's grisly demise and warily eyed by police still seeking a prime suspect in the unsolved slaying. To escape the pain, he buries himself in his work as staff psychologist at City Central Hospital, only to be drawn deeper into a waking nightmare when more women turn up murdered in the same gruesome fashion as Jocelyn Banks.

    Eric says: "Interesting"
    "Really poor!"
    Overall

    I generally enjoy the Kellerman series, particularly the Delaware's. Therefore I was prepared to like the new character. After struggling through two discs, I finally gave up. Absolutely no continuity or plot development. Felt like I really wasted one of my book credits. Save your money and buy something else!
