    In Locked In, San Francisco private eye Sharon McCone was shot in the head and suffered from locked-in syndrome: almost total paralysis but with an alert, conscious mind. Now, as Sharon struggles to regain control over her body, she realizes that it may not be possible to return to her old life. But when Sharon's friend from physical therapy goes missing, she must call upon those closest to her to find out the truth behind the disappearance.

    Where does Coming Back rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    Coming Back was not the book I thought it would be, although it did tell the story.
    I thought there were too many characters, too much jumping around. Perhaps this series is done?

    Frank Malloy has never known any life other than that of a cop, but his newfound inheritance threatens his position within his department. While trying to keep both his relationship with Sarah and his fortune under wraps, he' s assigned to a new case - finding a missing young woman for her worried father, Henry Livingston. It seems the girl had been responding to "lonely hearts" ads in the paper for months before she disappeared.

    It's not just facebook.
    So timely and so upsetting as we are told about how social media (newspaper lonely hearts ads) trapped women into sexual slavery in Victorian times.
    At the same time Malloy and Sarah's relationship moves ahead with the potential blending of family and homes. Well paced, well told, well narrated. Looking forward to the next episode as things are set up for Malloy and Sarah to now be openly working together.

    Fading into the background isn’t the Sisterhood way. Even after all the adventures they’ve shared, the courageous, close-knit heroines of Fern Michaels’ New York Times best-selling series are always ready to embrace another challenge… All good things must come to an end. But Myra Rutledge isn’t ready to put the Sisterhood - the stalwart band of friends who’ve become legendary for meting out their own brand of justice - behind her just yet.

    So delighted to have the whole gang working together. Each have their specialities and even though they may not be in the same location each do their thing to perfection. I so enjoy the vicarious satisfaction of hearing the vigilantes work out their schemes and right the wrongs. Read this one way out of order so was happy to learn how Dennis joined the group. Also the ending was not filled with gratuitous violence as some earlier and later books did. Just right.

    Life comes in stages. Even the Sisterhood has been content to let their gold shields gather a little dust while they enjoy their friends and family. But when a string of anonymous emails arrives at Pinewood, suggesting shady dealings at a local assisted-living facility, Myra Rutledge and her best friend, Annie de Silva, are more than ready to out-hustle a master con artist at his own game. They’ll need to enlist some new and untested allies in order to pull off their brilliant plan.

    Could hardly put this one down. Myra and Annie cooking up an adventure with the Post gang and a newbie. Glad to see some added characters although I miss it being mostly women. Looking forward to Charles' tale in the next episode. Meanwhile gratuitous violence was so unnecessary and achieved nothing. They reach their goal without needing to have done the last bit. Other than that I loved this book.

    A rising star, Dani Pettrey has received critical acclaim and popular accolades for her suspenseful fiction. In this exciting follow-up to Submerged, Piper McKenna is shocked when her brother, Reef, shows up covered in blood. A fellow snowboarder is dead - but despite the evidence, Reef swears he’s innocent. Deputy Landon Grainger, a close friend of the McKennas, is determined to get the facts - even though he has deep reservations about what he must do to get them.

    Story

    If I had known this was really a YA book, I never would have purchased it. Full of pouting, smart alecky supposed adults that sound like teenagers. The narrator has very few differentiating voices so many of them sound alike and often sound petulant. Interesting storyline hijacked by attitudes and immaturity.

    To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she' s paid to finally feel like she' s somebody. To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Fantastic all the way around. Great narrator. Actually stupendous narrator. Wonderful story. So well written. Kept me up listening way past when I should have gone to bed.
    If you like science or math and have any interest in space travel, this is the book to listen to.

    Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I'd never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He'd been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He'd been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone's name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

    Story

    I thought R was poor but this one beats it. Depressingly read too. In R Kinsey just followed along with the idiot ideas of a young woman even though she knew they were off and would be trouble. Not a bright thing for a seasoned detective to be doing.
    In W she goes further, being fleeced when she could stand up for herself and say no. Letting people dump all over her. The characters in this book are the worst yet. I have no call to get to know them better or to listen to more of this negativity. Seems like the alphabet should have ended before R. This series is dead for me.

Over the years, he quietly settled her many scrapes with the law, but he wasn't there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institute for Women. Now, at 32, she is about to be paroled, having served 22 months of a four-year sentence. Nord Lafferty wants to be sure she stays straight, stays at home and away from the drugs, the booze, the gamblers.

    Story

    Why an adult with Kinsey's reputation and experience would continually follow an immature ex con is beyond me. Yes it made for some exciting scenes but Kinsey should have stopped agreeing with this woman's antics after the first mistake, especially since most of the time she was doing what this woman wanted without even knowing why or how things were supposed to turn out.
    I lost a lot of respect for the Kinsey in this book. I hope future books are more mature and responsible otherwise it is just filling up space hoping to get to Z.

    V. I. Warshawski’s closest friend in Chicago is the Viennese-born doctor Lotty Herschel, who lost most of her family in the Holocaust. Lotty escaped to London in 1939 on the Kindertransport with a childhood playmate, Kitty Saginor Binder. When Kitty’s daughter finds her life is in danger, she calls Lotty, who in turn summons V. I. to help. The daughter’s troubles turn out to be just the tip of an iceberg of lies, secrets, and silence, whose origins go back to the mad competition among America, Germany, Japan, and England to develop the first atomic bomb.

    Story

    This book is not for the faint of heart. It tells in graphic detail what happened to Jews in Nazi Germany and elsewhere during that period. This book also tells about how the US accepted known Nazi criminals into this country in order to help build a nuclear reactor and bomb and gave them US Citizenship.
    I enjoyed the science and the interactions especially Lotte, Max and Vic's.

    Corinna Chapman likes the quiet life: good food, good company, and her daily work as a baker. She doesn't really want mystery and intrigue in her life. Unfortunately for her, she doesn't have much choice. Corinna's apartment building seems to be a magnet for mystery and mayhem and, with her new lover, Daniel, a private investigator, Corinna seems destined to be involved in solving these mysteries.

    Story

    A good follow-up to the opening book but why did the narrator decide to have Daniel, John and Mrs Dawson whispering all the time? Very disconcerting when others talked at normal levels. Almost shut it off several times but the story line kept me going. If she can't do men then she shouldn't be narrating. All the young boys sound the same too.
