    Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She’s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby’s paternity have driven away Lex.

    I found this story riveting, but the performance by Steven Weber was fantastic! I plan to listen to more books with Steven Weber as the performer. Phenomenal!!

    Story

    A serial killer watches and waits. Each time, he takes two victims, preparing the first's body with all the clues the police need to find the second, who is still alive. The clock ticks, and the second one can still be saved. But the police never make it in time. The second one dies. For years, the killer has plagued the city with the same pattern, but the police never pick up on it quickly enough.

    Mina Brown says: "Captivating--it hooks you!"
    "A good book, but..."
    Overall

    The story is good, it held my interest pretty much throughout. The ending was unnecessarily long. BUT the narrator was just horrible. She pronounced words incorrectly and every male voice she tried to pull off sounded like a dirty old man. She really ruined the book for me!

    Joseph Finder introduced Nick Heller, a “private spy” who finds out things powerful people want to keep hidden, to widespread acclaim from the critics and wild enthusiasm from the readers, in the New York Times best-selling novel Vanished. Now, in Buried Secrets, Nick Heller returns, finding himself in the middle of a life-or-death situation that’s both high-profile and intensely personal.

    Amazon Customer says: "Entertaining and Riveting Listening"
    "Great book!"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. It held my interest throughout. Very well written and narrated. This is my first book by Joseph Finder and I plan to read more.

    The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.

    Derek says: "Not Connelly's Best"
    "Great..."
    Overall

    Kept me on the edge of my seat!! One of Michael Connelly's best! A very personal side of Bosch.

    The messages waiting for Henry Pierce when he plugs in his new phone clearly aren't intended for him. They indicate something has gone terribly wrong for a woman named Lilly. Pierce probes, investigates, and then tumbles through a hole, leaving behind a life driven by work to track down and help a woman he's never met. Connelly's latest is "a grabber from the beginning...utterly compelling."

    David says: "Nobody Could Be That Stupid That Many Times!"
    "Ummm..."
    Overall

    Not sure what to say about this book. Probably my least favorite of Michael Connelly. Just not a believable story.

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Virginia says: "The Confession"
    "Great book!!"
    Overall

    I thought this was a great book. It was very sad and disheartening but a great job by the author, as usual.

    Thanks to a heart transplant, former FBI agent Terrell McCaleb is enjoying a quiet retirement, renovating the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor. But McCaleb's calm seas turn choppy when a story in the "What Happened To?" column of the LA Times brings him face-to-face with the sister of the woman whose heart now beats in his chest.

    Andrew Stone says: "A Darn Good Book"
    "Not my favorite, but..."
    Overall

    Not one of my favorite books, it didn't show Bosch in a very favorable light. I'm not that crazy about Terry McCaleb, either. But all in all, it was a good book.

    A movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. In a seemingly unrelated case, a loner is murdered, leaving the sheriff's department with no clues. One unsettling revelation after another leaves a retired FBI agent and an L.A. detective thinking they've unmasked a most frightening killer with almost inconceivable calculation.

    Aaron says: "Terrific Pairing of Connelly's best Detectives."
    "Ahhh..."
    Overall

    Loved this book!! I love all Micharl Connelly's books, but this is definitely one of my favorites!!! LOVED IT!!

  • The Neighbor: A Detective D. D. Warren Novel

    Story

    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.

    KSK says: "Listen to "Say Goodbye" first"
    "Great book..."
    Overall

    Loved the story, but this is my first book by Lisa Gardner and I hope she doesn't continue with the character D.D. Warren. It was very difficult to warm to this character. She is too tough, too much on busting chops.
