    The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear… She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Fascinating look at a killer family!"
    "Excellent, like all other D.D. Warren novels"

    Where does Fear Nothing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This story was excellent and in keeping with all of the previous Detective D.D. Warren novels.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy this book series because you become familiar with the main characters, and there is a continuing storyline among them throughout. However, you could also read each novel as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading the other D.D. Warren novels first. I find it interesting that even though D.D. is in every novel, the story is always from a different character's point of view.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who likes futuristic books about dystopian societies. The storyline is intriguing and easily captures and keeps the listener's attention. However, this is a young adult novel, and includes a lot of awkward teenage sexual tension, which is the only thing I did not like about it. If you can get past that, the story itself is excellent.

    When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. When more children disappear and an orphan is found dead with the same mark, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, I didn't even finish the book because it could not keep my attention. My husband and I like to listen to audiobooks on long roadtrips, and we just could not listen to this one for very long before deciding it is awful.

    Saturday, 0911 hours — A blast rocks a London hospital and thousands are dead or injured. 1009 hours — Joe Ledger arrives on scene to investigate. The horror is unlike anything he has ever seen. Compelled by grief and rage, Ledger rejoins the Department of Military Sciences, and within hours he's attacked by a hit team of assassins and sent on a suicide mission.

    Story
    What did you love best about The King of Plagues?

    The story is great, and the narrator is phenomenal. He really makes the characters come to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joe Ledger of course! He is a bad-ass, sarcastic, and brutally honest.


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

    Yes, Ray is awesome, and I don't think the Joe Ledger series would be the same narrated by someone else.


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

    Yes! I listened to this book during my commute to and from work, and I found myself sitting in my car after parking as long as possible to continue listening!


    Any additional comments?

    You must listen to the first two books before this one to completely understand all of the characters.

    If you could sum up The Bone Garden in three words, what would they be?

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

    The narrator was great; I loved how she used different voices for each of the characters.


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

    This story constantly held my attention, and the story continues to get better throughout as you learn more scandalous details. The ending was perfect because the whole story comes full circle. Some parts did make me cringe because there are many gory details, but they only added to the overall emotion of the book.

    The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story itself bugged me. I'm really not interested in hearing stories about rape, child abuse, etc. If this kind of thing doesn't bother you, then you would probably enjoy the rest of the story line.

    We use DNA routinely - to cure diseases, solve crimes, and reunite families. Yet we've known about it for only 60 years. And what we're continuing to learn about it every day has the potential to transform our health, our nutrition, our society, and our future. But what, exactly is DNA, the self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms?

    Chris says: "Very good book on genetics"

    Where does Understanding Genetics: DNA, Genes, and Their Real-World Applications rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is probably my favorite non-fiction audiobook so far.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The content is very relevant to our lives and is pretty up to date on modern biotechnology. The beginning had a great review of genetics before jumping into the biotechnology lectures.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.

    What did you love best about The Neighbor?

    I enjoyed this book, however, if you are sensitive to stories about sexual assualt, do not read this book! The book constantly had twists and new suspects, which kept me hooked!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending truly was a surprise, and definitely in a good way.
