    An unidentified nude female sits propped against a fountain in Central Park. There are no signs of struggle. When Dr. Kay Scarpetta and her colleagues Benton Wesley and Pete Marino arrive on the scene, they instantly recognize the signature of serial killer Temple Brooks Gault. Scarpetta, on assignment with the FBI, visits the New York City morgue on Christmas morning, where she must use her forensic expertise to give a name to the nameless - a difficult task. But as she sorts through conflicting forensic clues, Gault claims his next victim.

    I felt like I was 5 years old and someone was reading me a bed time story. Not a good narrator and will likely not buy any more books narrated by CJ Critt

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    What disappointed you about The Burning Room?

    The narrator


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Connelly again?

    Of course


    What didn’t you like about Titus Welliver’s performance?

    No performance. Just reading.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Burning Room?

    Not sure I would cut anything


    Any additional comments?

    If you don't like the narrator, it is hard to get interested in the book. He delivers a very dull narration.

    The New York Museum of Natural History receives their pilfered gem collection back, ground down to dust.

    Would you listen to The Book of the Dead again? Why?

    I probably would as I like to get next in series and usually if a period of time goes by, I go back and listen to a previous book that leads in to the next in series


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Degosta as he is always in trouble. I think Smithback is an entertaining character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the description of the tomb. I would love to tour one of the Pyramids.


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed several of these books in this series, but I have to say Scott Brick is one excellent narrator. Wish he narrated more.

    Raised in the historic southern splendor of Natchez, Mississippi, Penn Cage learned all he knows of honor and duty from his father, Dr. Tom Cage. But now the beloved family doctor has been accused of murdering Viola Turner, the African-American nurse with whom he worked in the dark days of the 1960s. Penn is determined to save his father, but Tom, stubbornly invoking doctor-patient privilege, refuses to even speak in his own defense.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Natchez Burning to be better than the print version?

    I do a lot of driving and not much free time for reading. Audio Books makes the driving tolerable and go by faster


    What three words best describe David Ledoux’s voice?

    Voice was OK, but not as animated or able to make you see different characters with inflections or changes


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

    Some of the characters' sarcastic remarks hit home and made me laugh. There were parts that were extremely sad.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Greg Iles books and this one kept me on edge and I could not wait to get back to it....UNTIL, the last chapter. I appreciated the length and often look for long audio books. I become attached to character and enjoy the story, but it seems as if he got tired of writing and just wanted to wrap up the book. I was left feeling cheated. I needed more questions answered. I only hope there is a sequel that will answer all those questions

    In New York City in 2059, someone is pursuing missing gems from a decades-old heist...someone who's willing to kill for them. Sharp-witted and sexy, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas is used to travelling in the shadowy corners outside the law. And in a future where crime meets cutting-edge technology, she will attempt to track down the diamonds once and for all - and stop the danger and death that have surrounded them for years.

    I remember the first novel that introduced these characters, "Remember When". I loved reading about the past and then how it ultimately ended with Eve Dallas 50 years later. I would like to hear more about these characters. I look forward to every new JD Robb novel.
