    A week's holiday in a luxurious hotel is just what Scotland Yard's Superintendent Duncan Kincaid needs. But his vacation ends dramatically with the discovery of a dead body in the whirlpool bath. Despite a suspicious lack of cooperation from the local constabulary, Kincaid's keen sense of duty won't allow him to ignore the heinous crime, impelling him to send for his enthusiastic young assistant, Sergeant Gemma James. But the stakes are raised significantly when a second murder occurs....

    What disappointed you about A Share in Death?

    My family and I planned to listen to this book on a 12 hour drive this winter. We listened to about an hour of it and all of us agreed it was time to stop. The story went absolutely nowhere, the characters were flat and unappealing and the narrator was only average. I picked this book up on a buy one get one offer...I guess you really do get what you pay for!

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    G. House Sr. says: "Tedious Formulaic with same-old same-old"
    "My favorite narrator!"

    If you could sum up Notorious Nineteen in three words, what would they be?

    I only LISTEN to Stephanie Plum books - I never read them because the narrator is perfect! After all these years, hers are the "real" voices for all my favoite charaters! This was another fun story full of adventure and very funny moments as we have all come to expect from the "numbers" series. Thanks to Lorelei King it was made even better!

    Edgar Award nominee Robert Crais’ L.A. Requiem is a gritty, harrowing look into the minds of a serial killer and the men determined to stop him. Elvis Cole and former cop Joe Pike have been partners in a detective agency for 12 years. After an ex-girlfriend of Pike’s disappears, the girl’s father asks them to help the police with the search. When the missing persons case turns into a hunt for a killer who has been stalking victims in Los Angeles, Cole and Pike find themselves battling both a hostile police department and a madman.

    Would you listen to L.A. Requiem again? Why?

    This book was another excellent Elvis and Joe story by Robert Crais! I was hooked from the very beginning as we begin to learn a bit more about the elusive Mr. Pike. The pace of the story was perfect, the narrator was excellent making this a very enjoyable listening experience!

    Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case - but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

    Cris says: "Better than Other Recent Releases"
    "Good, but not his best"

    What made the experience of listening to The Forgotten the most enjoyable?

    This is a slower paced book by Baldacci. The story was interesting, enjoyable, and had some fun plot twists...but its pace was slow and the story didn't really hit its stride until late in the book.
