    The job was supposed to be dead easy: hand-deliver some legal papers to billionaire philanthropist Harry Van Dorn's extravagant yacht, get his signature and be done. But Manhattan lawyer Genevieve Spenser soon realizes she's in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that the publicly benevolent playboy has a sick, vicious side.

    Cheryl says: "Cold as Ice"
    "No thrills"
    Overall

    The first three chapters are tantalizing followed by a formulaic cat and mouse game between the two "love interests"that drags through the remaining chapters. This book left me cold.

    Overall

    You enjoy an incredible true crime story and chilling psychological profile. Not for the squeamish. I couldn't stop listening. The narrator has just the right "news man" tone that fits this tale perfectly. Yes, the narrative is redundant at times. You notice how certain phrases are repeated, but they didn't annoy me. I first saw "The Ice Man" HBO documentary and was riveted. This man is both an attractive character and monsterous. This tension drives the tale as well as the "creative" way he devises his crime.It will make you feel vulnerable. You will shutter unless you don't have a conscience. I'm serious. This is the real deal.Decadence and black humor and moments that will make you cry. You'll be glad there are some heroes in this tale. At times I had problems keeping track of all of all the Mafiosi, but it doesn't matter. I plan on listening to this again. The bonus material is incredible. I kept thinking, "What was I doing in my life when all this was going on?" because I don't recall seeing it on the news. This is also a story about abuse-unrelenting abuse: the making of a sociopath. It is also a story about mercy. Just get it. Nothing fancy here - just a great story. I hear a movie is planned, but don't wait. The film will have a lot to live up to.

    In this extraordinary novel, Karen Maitland delivers a dazzling reinterpretation of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, an ingenious alchemy of history, mystery, and powerful human drama. Magical, heart-quickening, and raw, Company of Liars is a work of vaulting imagination from a powerful new voice in historical fiction.

    Roxanne says: "Wonderful story..."
    "A satisfying tale"
    Overall

    I was intrigued by this richly developed rendition of Chaucer's classic from the start. Maitlin is a master storyteller. Her well-crafted tale has the kind of astute characterizations, haunting detail and flowing narrative that makes her a true visionary in my book. The narration is beautifully performed with each member of its cast of characters clear and distinct. It's tone takes the reader/listener effortlessly into the medieval world with all its suffering, superstitions,wonders and vices. I'm so glad I got this one. I recommend you add it to your collection. You'll be returning to it. Enjoy.
