    When the body of man is found in a canal, damaged by the tides, carrying no wallet, and wearing only one shoe, Brunetti has little to work with. No local has filed a missing-person report, and no hotel guests have disappeared. Where was the crime scene? And how can Brunetti identify the man when he can’t show pictures of his face? The autopsy shows a way forward: It turns out the man was suffering from a rare, disfiguring disease.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book was sooo slow moving. However, I tried several times to put it down and did not. If you like a story that plods along, this book is for you.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Donna Leon? Why or why not?

    No. If this is an example of her stories, I am not interested.


    What three words best describe David Colacci???s performance?

    Good listen. Characters were distinct and very Italian.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Come on; a funeral with pets?

    Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully - he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona....

    Where does Hammered rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    Somewhat different from what I usually read. I'm a espionage/thriller reader -- Baldacci, Child, DeSilva and Flynn, et al. I enjoyed the relief, especially the comic relief. The three books in the series were all good. They should be read in order for more continunity.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oberon, the Irish Wolfhound. Great voice.The vampires, the witches, the werewolfs, the gods, Jesus, the Virgin Mary and a host of characters that are believable and just plain fun. Oh, and don't forget the giant squirrel and all the flying creatures.


    What about Luke Daniels???s performance did you like?

    The narrator was fantastic. 5 stars. All his voices were enjoyable and memorable, especially Oberon


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Tequila God.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series. All were good, narration great. I recommend it heartily.

    Dumped by his glamorous Russian girlfriend during dinner at Elaine's, and running low on cash, Stone Barrington is having a bad week. So his luck seems to be improving when he's hired to locate the missing son of a very wealthy man - lucky because the job pays well, and because the son is hiding in the tropical paradise of Key West. But when Stone and his sometime running buddy Dino Bacchetti arrive in the sunny Keys, it appears that someone has been lying in wait.

    At 34, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all...his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.
