    FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail.

    Overall

    I've been a big fan James Patterson's Alex Cross series, have read them all and enjoyed them all. However, I think it's time Mr. Patterson retired the old boy. I found the constant complaining about having to do his job (that he's so good at)and be with his family to be very tiresome. The whole family thing is far to much in the for-front, making the real story line almost a sub- plot. Yeah, I know Alex Cross is supposed to be a very sensitive guy but in Mary, Mary he is more like a homesick school boy. Alex, retire, go home and be with your family!

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"
    Overall

    OK, I'll jump on the bandwagon. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is not only a great story, but Simon Vance does just a wonderful job in it's reading (as always).
    Mr. Larsson's character development is first class and his craftsmanship made me really like and care for some characters and really loath the bad guys. There were several acts of retribution that were very satisfying indeed.
    Just buy it, don't worry about keeping track of all the characters. They sort themselves out as the book progresses.

    Tragedy and mental illness have been dark companions of Rae Newborn for more than 50 years. Her life seems to start rebuilding itself, though, when she moves to a deserted island to restore the house her mysterious great-uncle built in the 1920s. But Rae senses powerful forces stirring on the island. Is the skin-crawling feeling she has of someone watching her only in her mind, or has something disturbingly real taken notice of Rae?

    Amy says: "Enriched"
    "Folly"
    Overall

    Whenever I have been compelled to write a review, it has always been for the negative. Well, I will remedy that with Folly.
    I have never read Laurie King before, so I purchased this book on the strength of Frank Mullers narration alone and have been very pleasantly surprised. A well written, well narrated, great story. I will read more of Laurie King.

    On February 19, 1945, nearly 70,000 American soldiers invaded a tiny volcanic island in the Pacific. Over the next 35 days, approximately 28,000 soldiers died, including nearly 22,000 Japanese and 6,821 Americans, making Iwo Jima one of the costliest battles of World War II.

    Ron says: "Courageous memories from those who were there"

    Overall

    Yet another good book ruined by the reader. In this case, the reader tries to tell the story with the voice of an eighty year old man and fails miserably. I do wish that if Audible provides a sample of the book before we purchase it,then that sample be an accurate representation of what he majority of the book sounds like, not just the introduction. The introduction alone never is enough to know how the reader treats the material. In my case, I know the book interests me, the reason for the sample is to judge if the reader is tolerable. I do feel that non fiction should just be read, no theatrics.

    This magnificent novel by one of America's finest writers is the epic of one man's remarkable journey, set in 19th-century America against the background of a vanishing people and a rich way of life. At the age of 12, under the Wind Moon, Will is given a horse, a key, and a map, and sent alone into the Indian Nation to run a trading post as a bound boy. It is during this time that he grows into a man, learning, as he does, of the raw power it takes to create a life, to find a home.

    P. Bergh says: "A fascinating, great epic tale"
    "13 moons"
    Overall

    I believe that I would have enjoyed this book more the old fashion way, reading it. The story has potential, although I do agree with Gabriela in that prose is more important to the author than the story. But what made me put this book down is that the reader read every sentence as if it was some profound revelation or an earth shattering concept. I found that in itself very tiresome. I loved Cold Mountain, but feel Frazier's second offering is lacking.
