    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    G. House Sr. says: "Tedious Formulaic with same-old same-old"
    "Best Evanovich in five years."

    Frankly the Plum series was getting boring with mediocre stories and old humor, but this was a return to the early Plum's. Great story with lots of great humor. Loved this book.

    In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You're about to get a visitor. It's an Israeli cop, and she's tailing a man who's smuggled out an extraordinary relic - a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon. Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses? He looks at the cop. She's not laughing.

    More of an attempt at an international thriller being solved by down home policing. But it doesn't really work. It is very predictable and slow moving. I prefer Virgil solving murders.

    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.

    Somewhere, deep inside the United States government, is a deadly list. Members of Congress never get to see it and only the president has the final say over it. Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off - until you're dead. Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name to the list. Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him and why they want him out of the way.

    My last Brad Thor. The hero has become a sadist, not an action hero. He likes torture. Sad. This used to be a good series.

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

    Explosive Eighteen is much better than 17, but still not up to the caliber of the early books. If you are a fan like I am, give it a listen. If you are new to Evanovich, get one of the early books instead.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."

    When Earl Alden is found dead, dangling from a wind turbine, it's his wife, Missy, who is arrested. Unfortunately for Joe Pickett, Missy is his mother-in- law, a woman he dislikes heartily, and now he doesn't know what to do-especially when the early signs point to her being guilty as sin. But then things happen to make Joe wonder: Is Earl's death what it appears to be? Is Missy being set up? He has the county DA and sheriff on one side, his wife on the other, his estranged friend Nate on a lethal mission of his own, and some powerful interests breathing down his neck.

    Story

    The author doesn't understand the difference between characters and caricatures. His mother in law was the only child of a man who owned numerous car dealerships in California? Box wants us to believe she lies and connives to get money from her husbands? She would be the rich one. It does not make sense. Then the plot twist at end was silly. A character that has outsmarted four men, would find a way to outsmart the fifth. Finally it is hard to accept Nate as a good guy when he shoots kids in the back. I have read plenty of eye for an eye type books, but they always kill really bad guys, not stupid kids. I think this is my first and last C. J. Box.

    In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out.

    Michael says: "Something new from Cussler"
    "Loved it"
    Overall

    Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler are in top form with this book. It is the best action book. This book has returned to the kind of Dirk Pitt action I am used to.

    Between avoiding the FBI and their moronic profiling computer, joining a dating service, mixing it up with street thugs, and parrying the advances of an uncouth PI, Lieutenant Jacqueline Daniels and her binge-eating partner Herb must catch a frightening maniac who calls himself "The Gingerbread Man" before he kills again...and Jack is next on his murder list.

    Kari says: "Like the book but GRAPHIC details"
    "Sorry I bought this book"
    Overall

    I was expecting this to be similar to Evanovich's books. It is not. The very first chapter was so graphically violent that my friend refused to hear any more. I listened to the rest of it, but hated it. Any humor in the book is drowned out by the sadistic killing of the victims.
