    When an unlikely (and nameless) hero stumbles into the path of a serial killer, he has no choice but to defend himself, and ends up killing the killer. Shocked by his own strength, he then goes through the dead man's wallet and finds the damnedest thing: a personal ad inviting the killer to join a party hosted by Errol Flynn. Errol Flynn? Isn't he dead?

    I love this tale. Read it years ago and so looked forward to hearing it. However, the author should NOT have read this book. Had some difficulties with his lack of expressions. Quality of sound improved a little after chapter 5. I hope that some day it is re-done with a different narrator (unabridged of course!).

    Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura.

    Overall

    This was a terrific thriller. I had some difficulties accepting an advanced preganancy with one of the leads. Otherwise great story line definitely had me on the edge for a while.

    Anne Rice continues her astonishing Vampire Chronicles with the story of Lestat's passionate quest for redemption, goodness and the love of Rowan Mayfair. Here are all the brilliantly conceived principal characters that make up Anne Rice's world of vampires and witches. And here is the spirit of Julien Mayfair, guardian of the family, determined to torment Lestat eternally for what he has done to Mona.

    "Nooooooooooo"
    Overall

    The narrator was terrible. Using accents, singing, trying to sound like a female - could not stand him. Best part of book were the recaps of previous really good books (The Witching Hour & Interview With a Vampire). The characters' names were the same but not the same people you knew in prevoius books. Had a very diffcult time with this book and I love Anne Rice!!
