    FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

    What disappointed you about Bombshell?

    The narration is so blasé. No personality at all.


    Would you recommend Bombshell to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not the Audio version


    How could the performance have been better?

    Use better Narrators. Get into character, change the voices a bit. It's really hard to tell who is talking since the male voice never changes from on male character to another. Same with the female voices, she is weak in all characters.

  • The Profiler's Daughter: Sky Stone, Book 1

    The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner. Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.

    What would have made The Profiler's Daughter better?

    A different narrator, one that can handle male voices.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I couldn't finish the book, I couldn't take the narration anymore.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Badly.


    What character would you cut from The Profiler's Daughter?

    The male voices were so bad I would cut all of them just so I wouldn't have to listen to that again.

    Not far from Washington, D.C., in a wooded area of Northern Virginia, a small house at the end of a gravel road serves a secret purpose. With its sophisticated security apparatus and hidden miniaturized cameras, it is being used by the FBI to interview one of the most important witnesses the agency has ever had, a young woman with an incredible story to tell. But a few people know about the secret meeting. And for them, a violent drama is about to begin.

    What disappointed you about Saving Faith?

    I am a fan of Baldacci's writing but this audiobook is so bad. My mind wanders, it's so boring. The narration is really bad too.


    What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

    There just really isn't a plot to follow. It's all about what a bunch of bureaucrats are doing and thinking and there back stories but very little about saving Faith. I am on chapter 16 and still it's about the bureaucrats. Not my kind of book sorry.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator drove me crazy with his type of narrating. Old time gumshoe type narration.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration because it could have been a great book if you cut out all the chapters and chapter of information about these bureaucrats, I really don't care, just get on with the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sorry I purchased this book. Usually I am very happy with Baldacci's books, but this one is no good.

    The first book in an original mystery series featuring 28-year-old Veronica Mars, back in action after the events of Veronica Mars: The Movie. With the help of old friends - Logan Echolls, Mac Mackenzie, Wallace Fennel, and even Dick Casablancas - Veronica is ready to take on Neptune's darkest cases with her trademark sass and smarts.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Veronica Mars to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely! With Kristen Bell narrating it can't get better then that. Great story.

    The plot was very good, the twists were perfect.


    What does Kristen Bell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kristen Bell brought Veronica and Mac to life.


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

    I enjoyed the entire book. Never a dull moment.

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    Like his father before him, Brian Holloway is a safe man. That is, his specialty is opening safes. Every job is a little mystery, and he has yet to encounter a lock he can't break or a box he can't crack. But the day Holloway gets called in to open a rare, antique safe in a famous author's library, his skills open a door that should have remained closed.

    Would you try another book from Michael Connelly and/or David W. Collins?

    Not a fan of the narration either. I thought it was a bit on the slow/somber side. I probably would lister to another one, Michael Connelly usually does good work. I love Harry Bosch


    What was most disappointing about Michael Connelly’s story?

    The story didn't grab me and then it was over without an ending.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by David W. Collins?

    Maybe.


    Did The Safe Man inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to listen to The Black Box, a Harry Bosch Story. I really need a good book after this non starter.
