    The legend began in the obscure little town of Pico Mundo. A fry cook named Odd was rumored to have the extraordinary ability to communicate with the dead. Through tragedy and triumph, exhilaration and heartbreak, word of Odd Thomas' gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends - and enemies of implacable evil.

    I enjoy the Odd series but this book was a disappointment. It will leave you with an "unfinished feeling."

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or Michael McConnohie?

    I would definitely read another Connelly book but I hope not to have to listen to McConnohie again!

    Other Harry Bosch stories.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael McConnohie’s performances?

    only if forced to


    Do you think The Black Box needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it stands on its own.

  • The Last Man: A Novel

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This is a great series but this book stands on it own. As always the narrator does a great job.


    What other book might you compare The Last Man to and why?

    Others in the Mitch Rapp series, (I've enjoyed them all!).


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

    Yes. Good as usual.

    Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

    cstardancer says: "Not as good as usual"
    "Blah"
    Overall

    Read more like a soap opera than a good "Murder Club" mystery. This was disappointing.

    Few know the city of Los Angeles the way #1 best-selling author and acclaimed suspense master Jonathan Kellerman does. His thrilling novels of psychological drama and criminal detection make the capital of dreams a living, breathing character in all its glamour and infamy. That storied history of fame, seduction, scandal, and murder looms large in Mystery, as Alex Delaware finds himself drawn into a twisting, shadowy whodunit that’s pure L.A. noir—and vintage Kellerman.

    Marion says: "As one narrator to another"
    "very disappointing"
    Overall

    This series has gone down hill. I am a fan of Kellerman but his was very disappointing "read."
