    Overall

    I have listened to almost all of the Joe Pike Elvis Cole books. So I was looking forward to this one.
    First the narrator was awful to me. He may be good in other books but it just sounded wrong and his voice irrated me. I finally put my ipod on fast which helped a little. I listened to it all just because I had purchased it. But truthfully I just listened did not get much out of the book. Jack Daniels has narrated other of these books and I really like him. Maybe if he had narrated this book I could of gotten into it better. Sorry I bought this book.

  • The Black Cat: A Richard Jury Mystery

    Three months have passed since Richard Jury was left bereft and guilt- ridden after his lover's tragic auto accident, and he is now more wary than ever. He is deeply suspicious when requested on a case far out of his jurisdiction in an outlying village, where a young woman has been murdered behind the local pub. The only witness is the establishment's black cat, who gives neither crook nor clue as to the girl's identity or her killer's.

    Brad says: "Thoroughly Enjoyed Latest Edition to Series"

    Overall

    Very hard for me to get into. Was hard to follow. I listened to it all but had to force myself.
    I loved this authors book "Biting The Moon" and "Nevada" and that is why I purchased this book. As usual some people like it some don't. It moved slowly and was boring and a little hard to follow. I listened to this while doing other things so may have missed something.
    Usually though if it is a good book I don't miss anything. I may go back and try it again but not any time soon. I loaned my ipod to a friend and she tried to listen to it to and said she
    didn't care for it either.

    In America's Gulf Coast region, where grounded oil tankers are being broken down for parts, Nailer, a teenage boy, works the light crew, scavenging for copper wiring just to make quota - and hopefully live to see another day. But when, by luck or chance, he discovers an exquisite clipper ship beached during a recent hurricane, Nailer faces the most important decision of his life: Strip the ship for all it's worth or rescue its lone survivor, a beautiful and wealthy girl who could lead him to a better life.

    Rusty says: "Very good"
    "tough life strong will may make it better"
    Overall

    This was a well written book. Had a hard time getting into it. Characters were good and well developed. Lots of emotion. Narrator did a good job. I was disappointed in the ending.
    I like the unusal and fantasy but this just wasn't a book I really liked.

  • Bad Boy Brawly Brown: An Easy Rawlins Mystery

    Easy Rawlins is out of the investigation business and as far away from crime as a black man can be in 1960s Los Angeles. But living around desperate men means life gets complicated sometimes. When an old friend gets in enough trouble to ask for Easy's help, he finds he can't refuse. Bad Boy Brawly Brown is the masterful crime novel that Walter Mosley's legions of fans have been waiting for. This book marks the return of a master at the top of his form.

    Rosalyne says: "Mazing"
    "good book great easy"
    Overall

    Another good book by Mr. Mosley. His characters are great, interaction wonderful make the characters come to life. The narrator was fine to me. Easy is a good guy but not too
    good. Mouse and Easy are very unlikely friends but they help each other with no questions.
    Worth the read.

    From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose....

    Katie says: "Great book; so-so narrator"
    "Fantastic Dog"
    Overall

    I have also read this book many years ago. I loved it then and loved the audio. It is suspenseful. The characters are great. The dog was wonderful, great fiction. I have given it to many of my friends and they all loved the book. I thought the narrator was good. I recommend this book. Well worth the credit.
