    He's no ordinary kidnapper. Not only does he strike again and again, but he collects the ransom, gets away safely, and leaves his helpless hostages dead. Now, after months of eluding the best that law enforcement can put against him, this monster has left nothing in his wake but a cold trail of unconnected victims. Lucas Jordan is no ordinary cop. He has come to Clayton County, North Carolina to put a stop to these senseless killings.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Scotland Yard’s new chief inspector Nicholas Drummond is on the first flight to New York when he learns his colleague, Elaine York, the "minder" of the Crown Jewels for the "Jewel of the Lion" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was found murdered. Then the centerpiece of the exhibit, the infamous Koh-i-Noor Diamond, is stolen from the Queen Mother’s crown. Drummond, American-born but raised in the UK, is a dark, dangerous, fast-rising star in the Yard who never backs down. And this case is no exception.

    Would you listen to The Final Cut again? Why?

    Yes, this one had not only an intriguing story, but a can't put it down performance.


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

    Definitely. Catherine Coulter's books all have promise, but the twists in this plot were really interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Don't usually pay attention to the names of the performers. These did an excellent job.


    Any additional comments?

    Catherine Coulter's books often promise to be great, but about half way through they become easy to predict. This one didn't and i loved it.

  • The Story of Medieval England: From King Arthur to the Tudor Conquest

    These 36 lectures tell the remarkable story of a tumultuous thousand-year period in the history of England. Dominated by war, conquest, and the struggle to balance the stability brought by royal power with the rights of the governed, it was a period that put into place the foundation of much of the world we know today. As you journey through this largely chronological narrative you'll see key themes emerge, including the assimilation of successive waves of invaders, the tense relationship between kings and the nobility, and the constant battles over money and taxation.

    Where does The Story of Medieval England: From King Arthur to the Tudor Conquest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am a listener of novels. This turned out to be a"good read", but not a repeat


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Story of Medieval England: From King Arthur to the Tudor Conquest?

    The stories about every-day life


    Any additional comments?

    Like all of history, the reader makes a choice of the periods and countries they want to read about. This happens to be my favorite thanks to the novelists like Roberta Gellis who placed their stories in these times.

    For more than 300 years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore - and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it’s home.… A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigations after being accused of - but never arrested for - the murder of his soon-to-be-ex wife. He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though.

    Would you listen to Whiskey Beach again? Why?

    I almost always listen to a Nora Roberts book more than once. She does a great job of putting the reader into the setting. This may not be my favorite, but she's given us a good read again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abra, because she is so together. and green-eyed!


    What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?

    I didn't have a problem with his switching of genders. He didn't force it and it was natural.


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

    Not an extreme reaction, a satisfying reaction. It was a comfortable book and I had a good idea of where it was going. But Nora always does so well on descriptions that I really enjoyed the listen .

    Genevieve knows all about nightmares. She herself survived two months as a psychopath's prisoner. And now this new menace stalks the city. Spooked by the bizarre slayings, she turns to P.I. Joe Connolly, her past rescuer, friend and...hopefully something more, if he would just quit avoiding her. At first Joe isn't even sure there is a case. But the body count rises, and it's clear that a twisted killer is on the loose. Even more unsettling is the guidance he starts receiving from beyond the grave.

    I have not read print edition

    plot was intriguing.


    What does Fred Stella and Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love having the two narrators. i'm not particularly critical of voice changes, but few can do the opposite sex very well.

    As the supposed new owner of property coveted by the Church of the Everlasting Sin, she'd be irresistible bait for the reclusive and charismatic Reverend Samuel. His fortified compound in the mountains near Grace, North Carolina, had been the last known residence of two women murdered in ways that defied scientific explanation. Though hardly as naive or as vulnerable as she appears, Tessa knows she has a lot to learn about using her unique gift.

    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

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

    Any additional comments?

    I wish all the Bishop novels were on audible!
