    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    Terrific dialogue! I love the way John Sanford's characters speak. They are real and likable.I can't wait for the next book by Sanford.

    Exciting , great to listen to on long drives.


    Which character – as performed by Eric Conger – was your favorite?

    Of course it has to be Virgil Flowers, he is a one of a kind character.

    Haunted by the past, John Rain kills to order and leaves no trace, but the death at his hand of an old man has unforeseen complications - and soon Rain is trying to protect not just his carefully preserved anonymity but his own life and those of the people he cares for. A stunning, page-turning reinvention of the hitman thriller, Rain Fall marks the introduction of a compelling new series character and major new thriller writing career.

    George says: "Great new take on the Assassin Genre"
    "too much Japanese storyline"

    Would you try another book from Barry Eisler and/or Brian Nishii?

    Too much Japanese explantions, but good action and character development.I would try another book from Barry Eisler and I thought Brian Nishil was good as a reader.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The action and moral conflict of the main character was good. The long boring descriptions of the setting in Japan was the least interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Brian Nishii’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Could you see Rain Fall being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    good but not great!

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    Tom says: "Is Connelly the Best Crime Writer Or What?"
    "always good!"

    What made the experience of listening to The Poet the most enjoyable?

    Micheal Connelly creates a character the reader can identify with,and his plots are not predicable and keep the reader or listener guessing.

    good characters and plot.


    What three words best describe Buck Schirner’s performance?

    believable with feeling


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    nothing extreme, just enjoyable


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to audible books on my kindle over my car radio on long drives and it really makes the time fly!
