    A remarkably rare black orchid at a flower show lures Nero Wolfe from his comfortable brownstone. But before the detective and his sidekick, Archie Goodwin, can stop and smell the roses, a diabolically daring murder puts a blight on the proceedings. The murderer to be weeded out is definitely not a garden-variety killer.

    What did you love best about Unlucky 13?

    Two storylines, two great stories. The pace of a book is very important to me. This one's a quick one. Great listen.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    Yuki more than the rest. There isn't much of a difference between each character. That said she did keep the pace going.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Just about did, Can't wait for 14.

    Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career. A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real.

    What did you love best about 12th of Never?

    This one is set at a quicker pace than the others in series. Could not stop listening. Started book at 7 pm and by 1am I stopped and went to bed and started where I left off in the morning. Shorter book than the others but really good storylines.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The more personal side of the characters came out a bit more in this book. Gives more insight into each one. It helps to know what makes them click.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    Richie Conklin. There was a sensitivity that was only aluded to in the other books. I'm not a fan of changing readers in the middle of a series but January did ok with the reading. The distinction between the characters wasn't as pronounce as Carolyn McCormick's performance, but January's voice and cadence made you listen and want more.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "WHERE ARE THE BODIES???" for sure


    Any additional comments?

    Getting ready to listen to Unlucky 13. A little sad that 14 isn't out yet.

    Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

    Would you listen to 10th Anniversary again? Why?

    Yes and I have, and will again. Each time a new book comes out I redo the whole series. Its like watching 10 years of a TV series at one long session. That's the only way to do it for me. Its so easy to see how each character has grown and developed into the right fit for the series.


    What other book might you compare 10th Anniversary to and why?

    Actually I can't think of one.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    As usual she brings a certain life and personality to each character in the story. She is quite good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The couple that wanted the baby had so much love for him.

    What did you love best about The 9th Judgment?

    What other book might you compare The 9th Judgment to and why?

    There are many books written about PTSD and the Iraqi War but this one has a different storyline that makes it fresh.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    Cindy's character is really developing nicely and the reader has her down pat.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did it in two sittings. It did keep you listening.

    Not my favorite storyline. Took a little longer to finish this one. The pace is sporadic..


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

    She does a good job keeping you interested. With a good story she's really great. And if it's just an OK story she still does a good job. She saved this one.

    "It' s a question of what you have to do, what you have to live with if you don't." Sheriff Walt Longmire is reading A Christmas Carol in his office on December 24th when he's interrupted by the ghost of Christmas past: a young woman with a hairline scar across her forehead and more than a few questions about Walt' s predecessor, Lucian Connally. Walt doesn' t recognize the mystery woman, but she seems to know him and claims to have something she must return to Connally.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Spirit of Steamboat to be better than the print version?

    Didn't do the print version but the reader really makes the book come to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spirit of Steamboat?

    When Lucian denies being the pilot who saved the girl.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George brings volumes to the voices and the story. Each character is distinct. He has an ease to his voice. You believe him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Nerves of Steel!!

    What did you love best about A Serpent's Tooth?

    Not sure. Good listen. Not my favorite subject matter. I don't understand why people loose themselves completely in these religious cults. Walt as usual saves the day.


    What other book might you compare A Serpent's Tooth to and why?

    The whole compound religious sect thing has been done many times but it's the characters and storyline that add that little twist.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    As usual he brings the characters to life and he's true to these character with each performance. Bravo!!!!!!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I hate to see such weakness in people to follow so blindly so it wasn't one of my favorite story lines but the reader does keep you listening.
