    When tragedy strikes close to home, Mickey Bolitar and his loyal new friends - sharp-witted Ema and the adorkably charming Spoon - find themselves at the center of a murder mystery involving their friend Rachel. Now, not only does Mickey have to continue his quest to uncover the truth about the Abeona Shelter and the Butcher of Lodz, he needs to figure out what happened to Rachel - no matter what it takes. Mickey has always been ready to sacrifice everything to help the people he loves.

    Any additional comments?

    I have read or listened to all of Coban's books and have enjoyed most of them. But this one is terrible. The Mickey Bolitar character is an unsympathetic sort, who I really do not want to know better. The story is so convoluted that it is just screwy. It reminds me of TV series that are fine for one season and in subsequent seasons the writers seem to invent stories that make little sense just to keep the series on the air. I really hope that Coben gives up this Micky series!

  • Winner Takes All: Wynn, Kerkorian, Loveman, and the Race to Own Las Vegas

    Steve Wynn. Kirk Kerkorian. Dr. Gary Loveman. The first two are world-famous for their flamboyant, often outrageous efforts to dominate Las Vegas. But it's the third - an economist from Harvard Business School, unknown even to most of the guests at his high-profile casinos - who may now have the most impact.

    pete says: "Fabulous book! Narrator was bleh."
    "Interesting Story, Horrible Narrator"
    Overall

    Las Vegas is clearly a fairy tale story and it's interesting to see the mechanics and machinations behind the magic. A modern history of this cultural icon of the desert, the New Las Vegas is shown to have clearly broken with its mobster past, by embracing the more legitimate mobsters of Wall Street and the investment banks. The reader/narrator mispronounces so many words that it becomes almost laughable. It's not a deal breaker, but close, saved by the sheer interest value of the story itself. This book ranks in among my top five Most Poorly Read Books list.
