    Across America, a mysterious pathogen transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda. The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers. The only possible explanation: the epidemic is driven not by evolution but by some malevolent intelligence.

    I was very excited to see a sequel to Scott's last book - Infectious. By keeping the main character from the last book, he caught my interest immediately and held on to it for the entire book. I listen to most books in dribs and drabs and so the story really needs to be memorable and this one was. I am also really happy to see that it's about to be made into a movie with Matt Damon playing the hero. What makes me think that the ending might change a bit????

    Two abandoned souls are on the hunt for one powerful man. Soon, their paths will cross and lead to one twisted fate. Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America with hopes of escaping haunted memories of a tragic war that took his mother's life. Now he's a priest who lives by a law of love and compassion. It is powerful men and hypocrites who abide by legal law but eschew the law of love that most incense Danny. As an avenging angel, he believes it is his duty to show them the error of their ways, at any cost. Renee Gilmore is the frail and helpless victim of one such powerful man....

    Jerry says: "Excellent idea. Poor execution."

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this story and it wasn't at all what I expected. The dilemma of the characters and the choices that they ended up making were choices that I would have struggled with, but which in the end I think were all that they could do.
    The world is rough and this story helped me to see some of the edges that I have ignored.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Overall

    I have only recently run into Jodi Picoult but it is a relationship that I see going on for many years. I read 19 Minutes the same week as the massacre in Virginia. There were times when the news stories were saying exactly the same words as were in the "novel". The research and completeness of Jodi's work is incredible. It gave me a completely different perspective on what we need to do to stop this kind of thing from happening.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    Overall

    This story has haunted me since I finished reading it. I thought that it was very well written and gruesomely described. I literally felt the tension as the plants reached their way into the ill fated team of campers.
    I have also avoided any plants with red flowers since finishing the book.
