    In 1990, a young woman was strangled on a jogging path near the home of Pat Brown and her family. Brown suspected the young man who was renting a room in her house, and quickly uncovered strong evidence that pointed to him - but the police dismissed her as merely a housewife with an overactive imagination. It would be six years before her former boarder would be brought in for questioning, but the night Brown took action to solve the murder was the beginning of her life's work.

    What disappointed you about The Profiler?

    Ms. Brown goes on, and on, and on about different crimes committed in various parts of the country, ie, 'a southern state, a midwest state, etc. Why she just doesn't name the state the crime occurred in bewildered me. She spends a great deal of time denigrating the local police and prosecuters but guess what? She doesn't solve one crime using her "profiling" expertise. Not a single perpetrator is prosecuted, let alone convicted. I began to wonder if Time-Life offered a book series on criminal profiling and Ms. Brown took it! Whatever you paid for this book, It is worth more to give it back.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No idea.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Pat Brown?

    No other narrator could have saved this mess!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career. A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real.

    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro and/or January LaVoy?

    Not anytime soon!


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro again?

    Not unless the quality improves.


    What didn’t you like about January LaVoy’s performance?

    It wasn't LaVoy's fault, she did the best she could with this oinker.


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

    None!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Patterson is obviously more concerned with raking in as much cash as possible at the expense of quality. I guess he needs a new jet or needs to refurnish the Florida mansion. This drivel does not come close to his earlier Alex Cross books. The characters are shallow, the story line is totally implausible, and I don't like the way Patterson and Paetro portray their characters as the absolutely finest people in the world and every one outside their circle as morons, crooks, lowlifes or scumbags. When the female FBI agent tried to give a baby gift to the Boxer character and she dumped it in the trash after the agent left, I turned off my iPod and screamed, "NO MORE"!! I have never been a huge fan of the Women's Murder Club series. but this trash was bad even for it! In the future, I'll stick with John Sanford. Both his Prey series and his Virgil Flowers series are wonderful reads. I guess he doesn't need the money as much as Patterson. Ugh!

    .Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Deephaven, an entire family has been killed - husband, wife, two daughters, dogs. There’s something about the scene that pokes at Lucas’s cop instincts - it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he’s seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn’t seem to fit.

    The humor.

    The moment David Romero shot Dos and was then shot by Martinez


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    I like his ability to carry the listener into the action.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending could have been better, It should have told more of the story of the ramaining gold.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    What did you love best about Steve Jobs?

    Not much. He was, without a doubt, the straw that stirred the drink at Apple, but at the same time he was a horrible human being who treated the people in his life as well as his employees as little more than dirt. He cried and threw tantrums when he didn't get his way and was a master manipulator. Macheavelli would have loved Steve Jobs.. Jobs' ego ultimately killed him as it disconnected him from the reality of his cancer. When he finally got a grip on reality, it was too late. His story could have been written by Shakespeare. I bought an iPhone shortly before strarting Isaacson's book and mentioned to my wife that had I read the book first I wouldn't have bought any Apple product.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Steve Jobs?

    When he returned to Apple and brought it back from the brink.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last encounter between Jobs and Bill Gates.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A Twenty-First Century Shakespeare Tragedy!


    Any additional comments?

    Isaacson did a magnificent job of weaving the entire tapestry of Jobs' life, warts and all. An excellant work of literature, it truly makes us examine why we hold these people in such high regard, giving them a pass on being total jerks because they produce beautiful objects that we can't seem to live without.
