    LAPD Detective Harry Bosch tackles three tough cases that span a legendary career in this never-before-collected trio of stories. Utterly unputdownable, they are proof that "Connelly never stops doling out the suspense.... Once it grabs you in those first few pages, it won't let go of you" (Boston Globe).

    Would you consider the audio edition of Angle of Investigation to be better than the print version?

    It's better because I can listen in my car while traveling.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Angle of Investigation?

    When Harry returned the saxophone to the original owner.


    Have you listened to any of Len Cariou’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and he is always good.


    If you could rename Angle of Investigation, what would you call it?

    Why rename it?

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    "From the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor to America’s first bold counterstrike against the Japanese on the beaches of Guadalcanal, this compelling story takes you to the front lines of victory and defeat - and into the very heart of courage, loyalty, and valor. It is a heroic story of pride and passion you will never forget.... Griffin’s books are distinguished by their high action and suspense, his dashing irreverence toward high command, and his clear picture of war and its wartime leaders.” (The Florida Times-Union)

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "Raw vegetables, eggs, meat and cheese"

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

    DNA


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Makes me aware of wheat's pervasiveness

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The entire premise was completely unbelievable


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Lee Burke? Why or why not?

    I have always enjoyed Burke, so yes.


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

    I get more flavor when Patton reads it.


    Was Creole Belle worth the listening time?

    50/50


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get so political with the stories. Seems to be more so with every book.

    Not even a little believable. I need to think that "this could really happen." Iles quality is undependable and inconsistent.


    What could Greg Iles have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't think the premise was workable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    Dick Hill is great.

    Devon Brady is a veterinarian working in a makeshift hospital at an island search and rescue site. When Jude Marrok arrives with his wounded black lab, she has no idea that she is about to be plunged into a whirlwind of terror, destruction, and passion. The last thing Devon needs is to be drawn into Marrok's high-stakes game. And while she feels increasingly drawn to him, she doesn't trust him. Is Jude her salvation or her damnation? Are the secrets he's protecting worth killing for?

    Melissa says: "Trite Bodice Ripper"
    "Maybe a good romance novel - maybe"
    Overall

    Very disappointing. Not a believable plot, nor believable situations. Save your money, unless you like sappy romance novels.
