    As MC and Kitt hunt a faceless killer, they are led deep into cyberspace, where no one is who they seem and you never know who's watching. At the heart of this fast-paced thriller is the relationship between the two headstrong women, their struggle to balance their dual roles, to learn to trust, and to walk the fine line between upholding the law - and taking it into their own hands as they race to find a murderer.

    It is not too often that I start a book and can not stop until it is finished. This was one that I just could not turn off. Everytime I thought I was getting to a good stopping point something big happened and I had to listen on.

    What I really liked was the ending. I thought I had this one figured out fairly early on but was quite surprised who it was.

    This is the free first two chapters from Plum Spooky. Evanovich fans rejoice! Stephanie Plum is back in town, along with her sidekick Lula, her Grandma Mazur, and an ever-widening cast of freaks, criminals, deranged felons, and lunatics looking for love. And just when Stephanie thinks her life can't get any more complicated, in walks the mysterious Diesel. A man who seems to show up at the most inconvenient moments.

    Overall

    I just listened to this last night. From this preview I am putting this on my wish list an will be looking for the release.

    Anyone that reads the Plum books will know that a monkey added to her life is going to cause problems and create lots of laughs.

    When paramedics find a malnourished 6-year-old boy near a burning car that holds a dead woman, they wonder who he is - and why he won't talk. Seth, a small-town journalist who was raised by foster parents, is assigned to cover the story and investigate the boy's identity. But will his search unearth long-buried emotions - and answers to his own history?

    "This book was an all night listen"
    Overall

    I ended up listening to this book from start to finish. The ending is quite a surprise!

    I will be looking for more books by this author. I think he is also did the narration. If he ever stops writing I think he could have a great vocation as a narrator.

    Months after Jeff's beloved Chevy Woodie is wrecked, it's finally restored. But when he and Greer go to pick it up at the shop, they discover the asphyxiated bodies of four men. What first appears to be an accident is soon ruled a homicide. An envelope found inside one of the woodie's doors during the restoration connects the Talbot family to the murder - and leads Jeff to Los Angeles in search of a mysterious woman who may hold the key.

    Ruth B. says: "Boy this book brought back memories"
    "Boy this book brought back memories"
    Overall

    I have been watching for this book. My very first memories are of my Dad's 1947 Ford Woody.

    Each chapter starts with a quote from the old Berma Shave road signs. I love those old signs. I remember one that was quoted, This will never come to pass, A backseat driver out of gas...Berma Shave. This sign group was right down the road from where I now live.

    The story is about a Woody owner tracking down some old family history and solving the murders of the "Four on the Floor" bodies found in the restoration shop where his Woody was being restored. It has a few twists and turns that were not expected.

    This was an easy listen!

    The freezing Antarctic winter shuts supply lines down completely; conditions are too treacherous for planes and boats and the only connection with the rest of the world is satellite hook-up. During the winter of 1999, Dr. Nielsen, the only physician on a staff of 41 people, discovered a lump in her breast. She was forced to perform a biopsy and in June began to treat herself with chemotherapy, in order to insure that she could survive until her rescue in October.

    Lorraine says: "A compelling Story"
    "Grab a blanket! You will feel the cold!"
    Overall

    This book is about a doctor that discovered a lump in her breast shortly after the last plane left the South Pole. She was stuck there for over 8 months before they were able to rescue her.

    While telling the story of her ordeal she also paints a picture of what life is like living in such a harsh environment. You will feel the cold as you listen to the stories of how people work and play at temperatures below zero.

    I do not know if it was the recording or the reader but this book often has a slight pause in the middle of a word. I tend to feel that it was the reader though. If not for this, I would give this 5 stars.

    The house was deathly quiet. That was the first sign that something was terribly wrong. Fourteen-year-old Cynthia Bigge woke that morning to find herself alone. Her family - mother, father, and brother - had vanished without a word, without a note, without a trace. Twenty-five years later, Cynthia is still looking for answers. Now she is about to learn the devastating truth.

    S. Johnston says: "I truy enjoyed this book!"
    "This is a real cliff hanger right to the end"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. The plot twists and turns clear to the very end. Every time you think you have everything figured out another twist pops up. Yes, there is even a cliff involved.

    The story is about a 14 year old girl that wakes up to find the rest of her family has disappeared without a trace. Most of the events take place 25 years later with Cin trying to figure out what really happened to them.

    Between avoiding the FBI and their moronic profiling computer, joining a dating service, mixing it up with street thugs, and parrying the advances of an uncouth PI, Lieutenant Jacqueline Daniels and her binge-eating partner Herb must catch a frightening maniac who calls himself "The Gingerbread Man" before he kills again...and Jack is next on his murder list.

    Kari says: "Like the book but GRAPHIC details"
    "If you like Evonavich you will like this series."
    Overall

    This is the first book in the series and I am hooked! After listening to this book, I purchased the whole set.

    I like that Jack(Jackie)Daniels is a little older and wiser. She is a 50 something cop with many years under her belt yet can get into some interesting situations.

    The narrator dose a good job with the different voices and is easy to listen to.

    Michael McClelland, the brilliant murderer introduced in the first Alan Gregory novel, has left the Colorado State Mental Hospital - and he's coming after Alan's family. The timing couldn't be worse; like a wounded animal, Alan is in a vulnerable state, facing severe doubts about his professional life, his marriage, and his own psyche.

    I really enjoy Stephen White books and am so happy Audio has decided to add his books. While each book is a great read on its own, his books are a series so I recommend that you try to read them in order to follow along with the side stories about the main characters.
    Do not start this one at bedtime unless you plan on staying up for a good listen. There are lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing what will happen next.

    The stakes have just been raised for psychologist Alan Gregory: his friend and fellow therapist Hannah Grant has mysteriously died at the office. The police are baffled, leaving another apparent homicide unsolved in Boulder. Only Alan has the means to decipher Hannah's clues, a quest that will take him to Las Vegas and lead him to question the integrity of those closest to him.

    Overall

    I have never been dissapointed in any of this authors books and this is not an exception.

    People keep dissapearing as psychologist Alan Gregory trys to figure out what happened to one of his associates. There are lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing till the very end.

    The author does a very good job with describing the area around Boulder, the weather conditions and the essence of the community. I was very impressed with the way he blended information from a well known missing person case into the story without getting into the politics of the case.

    Case One: A little girl goes missing in the night. Case Two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack. Case Three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.

    Carrie says: "Deftly written, completely original mystery"
    "I gave up on this one."
    Overall

    After two cases I gave up because they just left you hanging in the air.
