    It is called Crota...and it has awakened. Sheriff Skip Harding is called out to investigate a double homicide unlike any he has seen before. The bodies have been torn to pieces in the woods. Some think it's a bear. But others whisper something different. "It is the Crota," they say, - the great beast of Native American legend that one day will reawaken. Now that day has arrived.

    What did you love best about Crota?

    The whole story keeps you in suspence. Mr. Goingback's imagination is incredible...


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, with all the mystery and killing. It was unpredictable.


    Have you listened to any of Heath Kizzier’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I loved his voice very clear, pleasant and sexy too.


    If you could rename Crota, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't dare.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that Mr. Goingback would write more books like this one. I have all of his books. I enjoyed each and one of them.

    On an isolated farm in southern Ireland, a decades-old grave houses the dismembered bones of 11 women. Detective Superintendent Katie Maguire of the Irish Gardai is used to bloodshed, but these white bones speak of unimaginable butchery. Not far away, a young American tourist is at the mercy of a sadistic killer. His tools are a boning knife, twine, and a doll fashioned from rags, nails, and fish-hooks. The murder of his victims is secondary only to his pleasure at their pain.

    In the mid-1980s the Snow White Killer terrorized the streets of Nashville, Tennessee. Then suddenly the murders stopped. A letter from the killer to the police stated that his work was done. Now four more bodies are found, marked with his fatal signature. The residents of Nashville fear a madman has returned, decades later, to finish his sick fairy tale. Homicide Lieutenant Taylor Jackson believes the killings are the work of a copycat killer who's even more terrifying.

    What disappointed you about 14: Taylor Jackson Series #2?

    Everything. J.T. should write biographies instead of "mysteries".


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The latest of Preston & Child.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joyce Bean’s performances?

    Joyce Bean was not the problem, she is just the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    J.T. Ellison is on my black-list.

    Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her - people with gifts - and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance. She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch. Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

    What would have made Unravel Me better?

    She start with intimacy between the characters and never finishes the deed.


    Has Unravel Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Where is the third book? Need to finish what she started.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Simses?

    She is okay.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    Too many things happening at the same time, but there is not an ending to the stories.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    What was most disappointing about Stieg Larsson’s story?

    It was a sorry story line. Lack of suspence or action.

    Maybe

    Homicide detective Taylor Jackson thinks she's seen it all in Nashville—from the Southern Strangler to the Snow White Killer. But she's never seen anything as perverse as The Conductor. Once his victim is captured, he contains her in a glass coffin, slowly starving her to death. Only then does he give in to his attraction.

    Amorah Ross says: "Chilling Spellbinder"
    "The Cold Room"
    Overall

    Looking at the cover of the book I though that it was going to be a good story. I was very disappointed.It lacks the intensity, the mystery and the suspense to keep the listeners on the edge.

    Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm.

    Babs says: "Intelligent people behaving stupidly"

    I was hopping for something better than this. It was an okay story.
