    Detective Gabriel Allon returns in Daniel Silva's stunning thriller of ancient and modern betrayal, long-buried secrets and unthinkable deeds that takes the listener from Munich to Venice to the Vatican.

    D Alexandra says: "good story but over rated"
    "Great characters"
    Overall

    I like spy thrillers but so many of them are populated with unbelieveable characters in weak plots. The confessor had a very interesting story, with people I developed an affection for. It is definitely worth listening to.

    Nevada Barr quickly attracted the attention of mystery fans when her first Anna Pigeon mystery, Track of the Cat, appeared. Now she immerses the intrepid park ranger in a perilous search that will take her far below the waters of Lake Superior. As Anna spends her days patrolling its shores, the surface of Lake Superior fills with tourists. In the depths below lie an ancient ship and the bones of its sailors.

    Charlene says: "Great mystery, totally enjoyed it"
    "A Superior Death is not a superior story."
    Overall

    I decided to try this author given the positive reviews she received from other listeners but I was greatly disappointed. I was looking for a mystery/adventure story and the description of the plot for this book had indicated to me that it could be exciting. Unfortunately, the author gets bogged down in the mundane. I felt too much time was given to minutia about the characters' lives in an effort to develop them personally, and too little time was devoted to plot development. After I finished listening to the book my response was "eh." I may try this author again but I'm going to be careful to read other reviews of her other novels before choosing which one.

    Story

    At the end of a long day battling street traffic, bike messenger Jace Damon has one last drop to make. But en route to delivering a package for one of L.A.'s sleaziest defense attorneys, he's nearly run down by a car, chased through back alleys, and shot at. Only the instincts acquired while growing up on the streets of L.A. allow him to escape with his life, and with the package someone wants badly enough to kill for.

    Bethany says: "An entertaining read"
    "Great story with great characters."
    Overall

    I had read one of the author's previous books, "Ashes to Ashes," and hadn't liked it. I think this author has a tendency to be a whiner and her female characters tend to be victimized. This book was less that way, and I enjoyed it from start to finish. The story and characters are well drawn and the idea of an adolescent who is trying to care for his younger brother while being stalked by a killer energizes the story. If you hadn't liked this author before give her another chance, you'll be glad you did.
