    Welcome to another typical summer in Florida, the season of the storms. Serge Storms. That loveable serial killer, an under-under-medicated dispenser of truth, justice, and trivia, is back with a vengeance. And not a weirdness-laced moment too soon. His cherished home state is about to take a beating, and from far more than the way-too-routine conga line of hurricanes bearing down on the peninsula. Corpses have begun turning up at a disturbing rate, even for Florida.

    I love all of Tim Dorsey's Serge Storms books, i have been listening to them in order of coming out on Audible. I loved the reader up until they changed the reader starting with
    Hurricane Punch. The new reader is no Serge Storms.
    The original reader made all the character voices different. This new readers voice sounds the same for too many (not all ) of the characters. His voice does not sound like the Serge we know and love.

    I was almost going to stop listening to the series because of this new reader. But the books are still funny.

    Audible, please have the original reader brought back.
    The new one may be good for other books but NOT for Serge Storms

    Serge is back with a bullet, torn between homicide and souvenirs. So is Coleman, torn between getting hammered and getting more hammered. Then there's good ol' Jim Davenport, the E-Team, the Diaz Brothers, and Johnny Vegas, the Accidental Virgin, cranking up the fevered action as the pot boils over on a street called Lobster Lane.

    Funnyman Adam Carolla is known for two things: hilarious rants about things that drive him crazy and personal stories about everything from his hardscrabble childhood to his slacker friends to the hypocrisy of Hollywood. He tackled rants in his first book, and now he tells his best stories and debuts some never-before-heard tales as well. Adam Carolla started broke and blue collar and has now been on the Hollywood scene for over 15 years. Yet he never lost his underdog demeanor.

    Brett says: "Not bad but uneven and not revealing."

  • Me, the Mob, and the Music: One Helluva Ride with Tommy James and the Shondells

    Everyone knows the hits: "Mony Mony," "I Think We're Alone Now," "Crimson and Clover," "Crystal Blue Persuasion." They are nuggets of rock and pop history. However, few know the unlikely story of how these hits came to be. Tommy James had been performing in rock bands in the Michigan area since the age of 12. Prompted to record a few songs by a local disc jockey in 1964, Tommy chose an obscurity titled "Hanky Panky," which became a minor local hit that came and went.

    This is a good book. The best thing is you will learn Rock N Roll History that you can't find in other books.

  • No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller

    No One Would Listen is the exclusive story of the Harry Markopolos-lead investigation into Bernie Madoff and his $65 billion Ponzi scheme. While a lot has been written about Madoff's scam, few actually know how Markopolos and his team - affectionately called "the Fox Hounds" by Markopolos himself - uncovered what Madoff was doing years before this financial disaster reached its pinnacle. Unfortunately, no one listened, until the damage of the world's largest financial fraud ever was irreversible.

    Great book (I have listened to the whole book twice). Learn how a killers mind works.
    Philip Carlo vividly tells the story of how the Ice Man killed people in various ways.
    Carlo does a good job showing the personalities of the killers family

    When Nate and Bix Rumstead (a supposedly upstanding cop with serious sobriety issues) find themselves caught up with bombshell Margot Aziz, they think they're just having some fun. But in Hollywood, nothing is ever what it seems.

    Christopher Williams says: "Laugh out loud funny and deadly serious"
    "Very Good Book"
    Overall

    This is a must read for people who like police novels. If you want to find out what really happens on Hollywood Blvd and the surrounding area, this is a must read.
    Wambaugh at his best

  • Atlas Shrugged

    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Robert says: "Over before you know it"
    "Basic Human Nature"
    Overall

    One of the greatest books ever written. And by someone who knows first hand how a big govt is bad for the people.

    Very important to read. Lesson learned, never vote for a democrate, they wnat to take your freedoms and money away
