    The Denver Post hails Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mystery series as a must-read. Joining the four previous novels - all of which have been Book Sense picks - The Dark Horse puts a unique Wyoming twist on the classic British village mystery. When Longmire meets a woman jailed for her husband's death, he travels outside his usual haunts to discover the truth behind this unusual murder case.

    V. Sharol says: "Another outstanding book from Johnson"

    Good writing, great characters, tremendous narration.

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"
    "Bad Writing"
    Overall

    Maybe I shouldn't have listened right after Lee Child's latest, but this book made no sense to me. The dialog is forced and the character development was improbable. The story itself was too outlandish to be remotely believable.

    Couldn't finish it.

    Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father's small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn't want, even if it's a job most law students can only dream about....

    JoAnn says: "Good, but not nearly as good as The Firm""
    "Not his best work"
    Overall

    Perhaps I was anticipating too much here. The story really never paid off. There were too many characters that didn't matter.

    He used to set the bar on the genre....

    Narration was good.

    After months of successful work in Europe, musician Evan Horne returns to settle in the San Francisco Bay area, where he makes inroads into the jazz scene. Life is good until he gets a phone call from a Los Angeles attorney. Evan's old friend and former mentor, pianist Calvin Hughes, has died and left Evan all of his possessions, including some mysterious sheet music.

    Kelly Howard says: "good reading of book I could NOT get into"
    "Not much there, man"
    Overall

    First one I have heard by this guy. Plot was weak. Dialogue was odd (too much "man" and "baby" - not sure people really ever spoke that way). No Connelly, Crais, Coben, or Child. Maybe I only like authors who's last name starts with "C"?

    It is 1947, the year Jackie Robinson breaks Major League Baseball's color barrier by playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers and changes the world. This is the story of that season, as told through the eyes of a difficult, brooding, and wounded man named Joseph Burke. Burke is hired to guard Robinson. While Burke shadows Robinson, a man of tremendous strength and character suddenly thrust into the media spotlight, the bodyguard must also face some hard truths of his own.

    Deborah says: "The Narrator Makes the Difference"
    "Baseball Lover"
    Overall

    This is a story of Parker's love of baseball set around the story of Jackie Robinson.

    It put you right in the time, and has enough interesting charcters, and a good story.

    I loved it!
