    Lurking in the dark corners of J. P. Beaumont's bizarre case was not just a demented mind obsessed with murder, but secrets so deadly that even a street-tough cop could die guessing.

    Would you try another book from J. A. Jance and/or Gene Engene?

    I have tried other books by J.A. Jance and they are ususally quite good. Good plot and well written. This one was not the most ecxiting, but being the first in the series, it provides some background info that is usefull (but not imperative), when listening to other books in the series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. A. Jance? Why or why not?

    yes


    What about Gene Engene’s performance did you like?

    He has a good voice and doesnt' overdo it, when portaying the different characters.

    It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from her neighbor Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood. Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I only managed to listen to about 10 min. before the narration got so annoying, that I had to quit. I know that it's really just a matter of taste, but I learned my lesson to always listen to the sample before buying.

    What disappointed you about She Can Run?

    I'm not a very big fan of the cross between crime- and love stories that seem to be a getting big especially with female crime writers. I don't mind a love story intertwined with the crime plot but sometimes, as with this novel, it just feels a little bit to Danielle Steele-ish for my taste.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    What did you love best about Chiefs?

    The character gallery is very well described. The plot is not as fast paced as some other detective novels, but the story is so well thought out and the characters so well described that you still want to know more. One of the best listens I've had for a long time.


    What does Mark Hammer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mark Hammer has a very distinctive voice and style. I'm a very big fan of the Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly and have thus listened to many audiobooks narrated by Mark Hammer. It took a little while to get used to his somewhat sniveling style but I have grown to like like it very much.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I bought this book thinking it was in the crime/thriller genre. It turns out to be much more of a drama/historical drama. Maybe it isn't necessarily a bad storyline but it is very slow paced and long.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    In our dangerous world, offenders cannot always be brought down by the justice system. When a different kind of justice is needed—swift, effective, and personal—a new type of avenger must take action. In Vengeance, best-selling author Lee Child, “a superb craftsman of suspense” (Entertainment Weekly), presents 21 riveting stories from some of today’s top crime writers.

    Would you try another book from Kendra Elliot and/or Kate Rudd?

    The performance was fine and I have no issues with the way that Kate rudd narrates. I would probably not chose another book by Kendra Elliot again.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    None. I found the descriptions of the characters to stretched and their actions too far from reality for me to be convinced.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If you're really into romance novels you will like this one.
