I like mysteries, suspense and thrillers. Occasionally I will listen to some scifi or fantasy.

    Best-selling author David Hosp weaves a thrilling tale of betrayal set against one of the most notorious art heists in history. In 1990, $300 million worth of paintings are stolen from a museum in Boston, and are never recovered. Twenty years later, as criminals connected with the heist begin to turn up dead, lawyer Scott Finn discovers one of his clients was involved in the job.

    If you could sum up Among Thieves in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting story about some really intelligent people. I love the way this group works within the law but really pushes the envelope.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Among Thieves?

    The drowning scene.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Scott Finn

    This was a really exciting book to listen to. It had very good suspense elements and was quite scary at times. The end was very unexpected wondering which of the characters would survive.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    Ripley Todd just wants to live a quiet, peaceful kind of life. Her job as a sheriff's deputy keeps her busy and happy, and she has no trouble finding men when she wants them - which, lately, isn't all that often. She's perfectly content, except for one thing: she has special powers that both frighten and confuse her - and though she tries hard to hide them, she can't get them under control.

    I love this series, I have read in paperback and have listened to these audiobooks at least a half dozen times since they were written. They are very sweet and exciting and suspenseful and never fail to make me feel good. I enjoy this narrator and have purposefully bought other books that have been read by her. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I have.

    When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she's finally found refuge from her abusive husband - and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago. Just as Nell starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers from a terrible curse - one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692.

    At midnight, in a secret medical clinic in Washington, D.C., two foreign doctors and their team are completing plastic surgery on an anonymous client who is changing the appearance of his face, among other things. After the procedure, the client begins to stir - and suddenly the operating room erupts in violence, and the clinic is ablaze.

    This plot was so intense I didn't want to quit listening! Enjoyed every minute of it. Of course Dick Hill was fabulous as always. I don't normally go for the whole government conspiracy/spy type novels but I have to say that this book left me wanting more!

    As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds. In these stories, the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

    Rose says: "Thank you for the free story, however........"

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

    I didn't like the whole erotica theme.


    What could M. J. Rose have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not really sure, I am glad I didn't pay for the book though.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I didn't like the switch between voices, individually they were okay but, the dialogue just didn't grip me.


    What character would you cut from In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain?

    Cotton Malone

    Kat Richardson excels at creating vivid, fast-moving novels that blend urban fantasy with paranormal mystery. In Greywalker, Seattle P.I. Harper Blaine is viciously attacked and murdered - but after exactly two minutes, somehow she returns to life. Now she's seeing strange things all around her - dark visions from the shadow world - and living a normal life may no longer be possible no matter how hard she tries.

    Would you listen to Greywalker again? Why?

    No, I don't relisten often, there are just too many good stories out there.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harper Blaine, I liked her style, she was tough and practical but still afraid.


    Did Mia Barron do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The characters were differentiated well, I just didn't really like most of the voices. Cam sounded like Scooby Doo and some of the vampires were just annoying.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No
