    As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds. In these stories, the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

    What did you love best about In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain?

    It was a dream come true for me! All of my favorite characters in one book,, and the introduction of the sex therapist Doctor Morgan Snow..


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

    Not exactly on the edge of my seat, because each character was bringing a part of himself into the book, and in a way I got to know them better than from their own books.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The same portrayors in their own books read the parts of their characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Absolutely! The ending, where Morgan receives the letter from Jack Reacher. It was so like him to do it that way!


    Any additional comments?

    Yes - if you are a fan of Reacher, please read this book!

    Stone Barrington is enjoying his usual dinner at Elaine's when his boss at Woodman & Weld, the law firm where Stone is "of counsel," walks in, sits down, and hands Stone a check for one million dollars. It seems Stone's undercover dealings with MI6 have brought in a big new client for the firm, and they're willing to pay Stone a huge bonus and make him a partner. But almost as soon as he's taken the deal, Stone gets wind of an impending scandal that might torpedo his big promotion.

    The story was exciting, and held my interest right to the end. As in all his books, Stone Barrington is the main character. Stone is someone everyone would want to meet and spend time with. He's wealthy, but fairly humble, loves the ladies and they love him.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fast pace.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he first met the aunt of the bride.

    What made the experience of listening to And Then There Were None the most enjoyable?

    I am a huge Agath Christie fan, so whenever Audible features one of her books I get in line. The stories always hold up well, although they take place so many years ago. A good mystery is a good mystery, and these are the best. This one, as usual, holds your suspense until the very end of the book, and it's one of those reads that you can't put down.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of And Then There Were None?

    The most memorable moment is the ending, as you are in suspense until that point.


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a good presentation, doesn't make the women sound silly like some readers, yet you do get the point and can tell the difference.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, one or two.

    Mma "Precious" Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues.

    Gene says: "Transcends its Genre"
    "No. 1 Ladies detective agency - Book 1"
    Overall

    This is the first book in the 12 book series about the Ladies Detective Agency, written by McCall Smith. This book caused me to order the rest of the series, which I have not been able to put down! The charming stories of the lady detective, as narrated in the Audible series is unbeatable, and a joy to listen to.

    Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home. Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too - and he's certain he's on the right trail. Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in.

    Michael Connelly is fast becoming my favorite author. He combines the exciting legal battles and investigations behind the courtroom, with the personal lives of the characters. He also has the talent to explain the legal technicalities in an understandable way. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast moving and exciting story of the legal system.

    I have read many of Mr. Archer's books and they are all wonderful, full of suspense and twists and turns that keep you glued to the story. I must say of all his books that "A Prisoner of Birth" is the best work of his that I have ever read. In fact, it might just be the best book that I have ever read! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to read a wonderful story, full of colorful and fabulous characters, and non-stop suspense!

Hotel security tapes from the victim's last vacation reveal an out-of-focus picture of a young blond woman entering and leaving his room. Could she also be a murder victim?
