    Michael Robotham's Suspect, hailed as "a lightning-paced debut" by Entertainment Weekly, was an international best seller that raised the bar for thrillers. Now two characters from that acclaimed novel, Detective Vincent Ruiz and psychologist Joe O'Loughlin, return for the electrifying Lost. When Detective Ruiz is pulled from the Thames, he has a bullet in his leg, a photograph of a missing (and presumed dead) girl in his pocket, and absolutely no memory of what happened.

    Until I listend to Lost "Lincoln Lawyer" was my listen of the year. But Lost has moved into the number one spot. Yes, the story was a little far fetched but it was fast paced, amusing, intense and different. The reader was perfect and in general this was a great book.

    What if a total stranger was watching your every move? What if he read your mail, listened in on your phone calls, knew what you spoke of only to your most trusted confidants? What if he learned Your routines? Your weaknesses? And, most important, what if he discovered those things you love and cling to . . . and then he stripped you of them? And sat back to watch while you self-destructed?

    Story

    I loved this book, it was well read and the story has lots of twists and turns. The hero's are flawed and brave, just the way I like them and the baddies are intelligently evil and deserve everything they get. My favorite Lehane book although "Gone Baby Gone" runs a close second

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Story

    I bought this because it was on sale and it got great reviews. It is well written but it is seriously dour and depressing and probably captures the vietnam experience. But after a couple of hours I couldn't go on and moved on in case I topped myself.

    The U.S. and China have emerged in the millennium as the pre-eminent superpowers. Japan and the U.S. have worked in secret at a disused nuclear safety research center on a remote island in the South China Sea to perfect a viable nuclear fusion reactor. Suddenly, the black veil of secrecy is shredded, the long-shot project is on the verge of breakthrough, and the Chinese want the prize for themselves.

    Overall

    I find it difficult to believe that this book recieved such positive ratings. The story was predictable, full of racial stereotypes and simple not worth listening to, which I am sorry to report I did... all the way through.
