    Tami Hoag, author of Dust to Dust, returns with "a definite winner," says Booklist. In a trailer in a Florida swamp, time is running out for Erin Seabright. A pawn in a kidnapper's terrifying game for a ransom no one can pay, her last hope is a washed-up ex-cop who has already lost it all - not once, but twice.

    Robert says: "Wow!"
    "Entertaining and well written"
    Overall

    Excellent story line and character development. Hoag really knows how to make her characters interesting - you connect with them and understand what makes them tick. The plot twists will keep you guessing, and the ending is NOT predicatable. Very enjoyable... my second book by Hoag. I would also recommend "Kill the Messenger"

    Behind the gates of a fabulous Hampton estate, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers the carnage of a gruesome crime, a nightmare of seemingly supernatural origin. The smoldering remains of infamous art critic Jeremy Grove, a melted cross branding his chest, are found in a locked, barricaded attic. The hoofprint singed into the floorboards and the smell of brimstone recall the legendary horrors that befall those who make a pact with the Devil.

    "Do NOT waste your time"
    Overall

    I listened to the first 30 minutes in disbelief at the poorly written characters and plot. I almost stopped listening and even spent some time through the audible site to see if they had a return policy (they don't). I decided to give the book a second chance - big mistake and a huge waste of time. Another reviewer wrote that this is campy, and they were right. At times, I felt like that silly boardgame "clue" had been brought to life, and they cast McGuyver as the lead character. Beware! Cliches at every corner!

  • Catch Me If You Can

    Story

    Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    Steve says: "Really entertaining!"
    "A fun listen!"
    Overall

    I haven't seen the movie, so I can't draw any comparisons there, but I will say that Mr. Abagnale weaves a very interesting story of his even more interesting life. This book is a fun listen, and you'll find your self rooting for him every step of the way. This is a good book for when you want something intriguing, but light-hearted (with the exception of the French prison part. I do agree with another reviewer there, but even that experience is a testament to his creativity in getting himself through and out of tough spots).

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "This book will make you think"
    Overall

    A good book should pique your curiosity and make you think, and this book does just that. Regardless of your beliefs, it is still an interesting work of *fiction*, based on some nuggets of truth. While I found the frequent use of flashbacks in the first half a bit repetitive, this information certainly rounds-out the story. This is not a book to be gulped in one sitting, but to be savored with time to think in-between (and to perhaps look at some of the references listed).

  • Ready for Anything: 52 Productivity Principles for Work and Life

    Discover David Allen's powerful productivity principles and vastly increase your ability to work better, not harder - every day. He asks listeners what's holding them back and shows how all of us can be "ready for anything" - with a clear mind, a clear deck, and clear intentions. This is the perfect audiobook for anyone wanting to work and live at his or her very best.

    Jeff says: "Good follow-up to"
    "Buy"
    Overall

    Having loved David's above-mentioned book, I eagerly bought and listened to this, but was quickly disappointed. I found that this book contained no substantially new ideas, and focused more of getting yourself in the right state of mind, than actually doing anything to get yourself out of dis-organization. I think I will get more out of re-reading the previous title as a refresher instead. Chalk this up as a preference over being "done" versus just being "ready."
