    Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again. In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

    Jeanne says: "A Good Read"
    "90% Up to Grafton Standards"
    Overall

    This was a well-planned and intriguing story that I really enjoyed 90% of the way through, but I got the impression the author was rushing to meet a deadline at the end. I will continue to read and listen to the alphabet series, but hope the next one continues with hard-hitting, complex mystery all the way through.

    On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered, the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: moon-faced clocks investigators fear ticked away the victims' last moments on earth. Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer, who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker, has more murders planned in the hours to come.

    Laura says: "Another great puzzle!"
    "Intriguing, well-written"
    Overall

    The Lincoln Rhime books are all great. This one had all the character development and plot intrigue we have come to expect from Jeffrey Deaver. If I had any complaint, it would be that the plot was almost too complicated, but it certainly kept me guessing. I would heartily recommend this and any other of the series.

    Kate, a former investigator for the Anchorage D.A. and now a P.I. for hire, is missing after a winter spent in mourning. Alaska State Trooper Jim Chopin, Kate's best friend, needs her to help him work a new case. He discovers her hiding out in Bering, a small fishing village on Alaska's western coast, living and working under an assumed name, working hard, as 18-hour workdays seem to be her only justification for getting up in the morning.

    Bonnie says: "Another great Shugak novel!"
    "More Harlequin romance than mystery"
    Overall

    This book had an interesting premise: doctor invents sleep medication to help suffering father, evil businessman perverts medication to pursue world domination, doctor tries to save world from evil businessman. However, the story got sidetracked by a silly romance, and the relationship between the main characters was so stilted and disfunctional that I had to turn the CD off several times in disgust. Also, how many times can one author use the word "jerkily"? If you want to find out, listen to this book. I was not particularly impressed.

    I heartily recommend this book for all lawyers who feel overworked and underappreciated. I loved this book! I laughed until I cried, but at the same time seriously rethought my career goals. This book was hilarious.

    Cate Fante is strong and smart, but when she gets appointed a federal judge, even she wonders if she can do the job justice. She's in her 30s, and she feels like she's joining the world's most exclusive retirement village. But Cate keeps her doubts a secret. And, as it happens, much else. For she leads a dark, double life that she hides from everyone.

    Babs says: "Blonde of little brain"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    The title was the best thing about this book. The story was preposterous, the main character unsympathetic, the legal subplot laughable, and the plot practically random. I was good and tired of this book long before it was over. The author had some mildly interesting ideas but I'm afraid they were wasted on this book.

    We read this book for our book club. Everyone enjoyed it, and it sparked a lot of conversation. Interesting and well-developed characters, complex ethical dilemmas, legal drama.

    Somewhere in South America at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of Mr. Hosokawa, a powerful Japanese businessman. Roxanne Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening, until a band of terrorists breaks in, taking the entire party hostage.

    Brian says: "Surprisingly engrossing"
    "Loved It!!"
    Overall

    I listened to this book over a year ago and I still think of it often. It was entertaining, thought-provoking and sweet. One of the best stories I've ever read or heard.

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "I loved this book"
    Overall

    I have a 14-year-old son with Asperger's Syndrome and felt so relieved to know that someone understands and conveyed the essence of AS to the general public. The book was both entertaining and enlightening. I would heartily recommend for everyone.

    Dr. Kay Scarpetta, now freelancing with the National Forensic Academy in Florida, takes charge of a case that stretches from steamy Florida to snowbound Boston, one as unnerving as any she has ever faced. The teasing psychological clues lead Scarpetta and her team, Pete Marino, Benton Wesley, and Lucy Farinelli, to suspect that they are hunting someone with a cunning and malevolent mind whose secrets have kept them in the shadows, until now.

    Babs says: "What's next? Scarpetta kidnapped by aliens?"
    "Okay but not what I had hoped"
    Overall

    I liked Patricia Cornwall's previous books, but this one wasn't quite up to standard. The characters were interesting, but after a while the story line started to seem outlandish.
