    Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims.

    Again, nice that Eve is a bit softer--retains her edge but not constantly complaining and fighting about everything. Typical Eve Dallas story but as always, a good listen and good performance.

    The locals in the southern Italian town where he lives call him Signor Farfalla - Mr. Butterfly - for he is a discreet gentleman who paints rare butterflies. His life is inconspicuous: mornings are spent brushing at a canvas, afternoons idling in the cafés, and evenings talking with his friend, the town priest, over a glass of brandy. Yet there are other sides to this gentleman’s life.... Part thriller, part character study, part drama of deceit and self-betrayal, The American shows Martin Booth at the very height of his powers.

    In the summer of 1959 Stella Raphael joins her psychiatrist husband, Max, at his new posting - a maximum-security hospital for the criminally insane. Stella soon falls under the spell of Edgar Stark, a brilliant sculptor who has been confined to the hospital for murdering his wife in a psychotic rage. But Stella's knowledge of Edgar's crime is no hindrance to the volcanic attraction that ensues -a passion that will consume Stella's sanity and destroy her and the lives of those around her.

    Story

    As I kept listening to this book, all I could think of, about 1/2 the way through, is this is sooo tedious a listen. I can't really explain it better than that but it dragged on way too long and the main character in the book, a psychiatrist, just wasn't a believable character. I would not recommend this book.

    In this novel from number-one New York Times-best-selling author J. D. Robb, the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife return a day early from their vacation, looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious 16-year-old daughter, who stayed behind. Not even their worst nightmares could have prepared them for the crime scene that awaits them inside.

    Story

    Susan Erickson did a wonderful performance as usual and overall story line was great, what I've come to expect from this series. However, this is a fictional murder series and I found it getting waaaay too graphic in the description of the torture and murder of the main victim. Hopefully, the following books have this scaled back a bit. Otherwise, enjoyed it as alway.s

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    I really enjoyed this book. The performance was really good and the story was engaging and kept me wondering what would happen next. I like a lot of Koontz's books but not all--I would rate at this one towards the top of his works. Very enjoyable listen.

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    I've never read or listened to any of David Baldacci's books so wasn't sure what to expect. It was a very engaging story line and quite an enjoyable listen. Both performers on the book (one male, one female) were great to listen to and did a good job as well. I'm glad I purchased this one--will definitely listen to again!

    Louie Cogburn had spent three days holed up in his apartment, staring at his computer screen. His pounding headache was unbearable - like spikes drilling into his brain. And it was getting worse. Finally, when someone knocked at his door, Louie picked up a baseball bat, opened the door, and started swinging.

    Story

    The usual engaging story line I've come to expect in this series, I'm happy to say. Grabs you from the beginning and keeps you in the story.

    But--what in the world were they thinking with the voices--almost EVERYONE has a different voice in this book, not just Peabody! I've listened to later ones so I know they'll be back but very strange this deep into the series they would change it up this dramatically. Still an overall good listen, however.

    An unknown bomber is stalking New York City. He is sending Eve Dallas taunting letters promising to wreak mass terror and destruction among the "corrupt masses". And when his cruel web of deceit and destruction threatens those she cares for most, Eve fights back. It's her city...it's her job...and it's hitting too close to home. Now, in a race against a ticking clock, Eve must make the pieces fit - before the city falls.

    It was nice to see Eve finally lighten up--her constant yelling and screaming and protesting gets old after awhile. This book was a nice mixture of the Dallas who still kicks ass but tones it down a bit. Pretty good story and an enjoyable listen. Great performance by Susan Ericksen as always with this series.

    I have to agree with the majority of the other reviews--this draaaaaaaged. Charlie runs around telling everyone he meets about his "secret" mission, rather than actually going on his mission! Then, when he finally does, it's pretty much anticlimatic. Lots of talking, very little action. Hope the next book is better!

    Sam Vimes is on a well-deserved holiday. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck - not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong - are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper. Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered, and Sam - out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife) - must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done.
