    Theirs was a marriage made in tabloid heaven, but no sooner had supermodel Laura Ayars and Celtics star David Baskin said “I do” than tragedy struck. While honeymooning on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, David went out for a swim - and never returned. Now widowed and grieving, Laura has a thousand questions and no answers. Her search for the truth will draw her into a web of lies and deception that stretches back thirty years - while on the court at the Boston Garden, a rookie phenom makes his spectacular debut....

    Overall

    I am a Coben fan so I decided to try the re-release of his first novel. I guess some things are just better left on the shelf. Play dead is in a word, tedious.

    Camp David, USA. A birthday party turns into a nightmare when a child is snatched after the celebrations. The First Lady enlists the services of Sean King and Michelle Maxwell to bring the child home safely. But she and King share a past. Years ago he saved her then senator husband from political disaster. And this may not be all that passed between them. With Michelle still battling her own demons, the two are pushed to the limit, with forces aligned on all sides against them.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I realize that there are readers other than Scott Brick, but once you start with reader why change mid stream. McLarty just doesn't work for King and Maxwell.

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Any additional comments?

    I finished it. It was not the worst book I have listened to but let's all agree that Dan Brown has told this story and it is time to move on. At times tedious at others a bit preachy. The narration helped keep me going.

    Story

    A movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. In a seemingly unrelated case, a loner is murdered, leaving the sheriff's department with no clues. One unsettling revelation after another leaves a retired FBI agent and an L.A. detective thinking they've unmasked a most frightening killer with almost inconceivable calculation.

    Aaron says: "Terrific Pairing of Connelly's best Detectives."
    "Good Story, Bad Narration"
    Overall

    Michael Connelly brings another good Los Angeles Crime story with his familiar characters. Listeners have to wonder why the change in narrators? In the previous Connelly books, Dick Hill has a west coast sound. The narrator of this story, Richard Davidson, sounds like he is from the streets of New York. Did anyone tell him that this story is about characters from Los Angeles? Strong Connelly story, but the story teller was a problem.

    The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark best seller Presumed Innocent, Innocent continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, 20 years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.

    Suzn F says: "Terrific Book"
    "Not Bad... Not Great"
    Overall

    Well, Turow did finish the story. There really were not many compelling, likeable characters in this one.
