    Effie Garrand is quite delusional, having convinced herself and everyone else that local artist Jock Fleming is in love with her, and that they are engaged. After a huge fight with Jock, Effie is found in the mountains, poisoned by hemlock. Now, it's up to Hamish to find the dreamer's killer before any more nightmares unfold.

    Excellent narration, story, and character development. You will be in Scotland and enjoy the people and environment as the mystery evolves and gives up its secrets.

    I am difficult to please, but this one is superb.

    The messages waiting for Henry Pierce when he plugs in his new phone clearly aren't intended for him. They indicate something has gone terribly wrong for a woman named Lilly. Pierce probes, investigates, and then tumbles through a hole, leaving behind a life driven by work to track down and help a woman he's never met. Connelly's latest is "a grabber from the beginning...utterly compelling."

    Would you listen to Chasing the Dime again? Why?

    Yes! Great character development and satisfying plot velocity. The narrator, Jonathan Davis, is flawless and engaging. The protagonist is complex, like-able, and intelligent without being 'perfect'. Recommended without reservation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Chasing the Dime?

    Climax in the lab.


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

    An intelligent, rich voice without foibles such as clicking teeth or breath sounds. Great timing to keep the listener engaged. Good 'female' voicing...so difficult for many male narrators.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Henrik says: "What an incredible audio book"
    "as good as it gets"
    Overall

    Thank you Scott Brick and the incredible Ayn Rand. Incredible character development, philosophy, eroticism, and pacing. Scott Brick is the perfect reader for this wonderful experience. The book is very long, but I have resumed listening at random chapters, and each stands on its own! Choose this one with confidence.

    Scott Turow has written a supercharged, exquisitely suspenseful novel about a vicious triple murder and the man condemned to die for it. No other writer offers such a profound understanding of what is at stake when the state holds the power to end a man's life.

    Kent says: "An engaging story"
    "excellent narration; great story"
    Overall

    J.R. Horne provides EXCELLENT narration of this wonderful novel. In particular his delivery of female dialogue is the best I've heard. Recommended!

    Evanovich fans rejoice! Stephanie Plum is back in town, along with her sidekick Lula, her Grandma Mazur, and an ever-widening cast of freaks, criminals, deranged felons, and lunatics looking for love. And just when Stephanie thinks her life can't get any more complicated, in walks the mysterious Diesel. A man who seems to show up at the most inconvenient moments.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "Classic Stephanie Plum"
    "Very poor book; good reader"
    Overall

    I've been curious about this popular author. This book demonstrated very POOR storyline, and would be appropriate only for readers with too much time on their hands. A monkey that pours himself coffee, watches TV, flips people the bird....all totally gratuitous. The protagonist is absurd and trivial. Men are stereotypes...huge huge hunks or snivelers. I will avoid any other books by this author.

    In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery - a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.

    gwennieg says: "Devil Bones"
    "Excellent Narration, good story, liberal bias"
    Overall

    The narrator Linda Emond is world class. The story is a bit uneven, and in need of good editing. The protagonist is well developed, with the all too common liberal perspectives including anti-white male, anti-Christian, pro-ethnic former NBA super studs with seductive green eyes. The narration is so good I will recommend this as a good choice.

    The "Big Three" are a trio of inmates locked up in the Minnesota Security Hospital over the years, each a particularly vicious serial killer, each with his own distinct style and propensities. Everybody feels much safer knowing that they're behind bars. Except...there's a new killer on the loose. And his handiwork bears a disturbing resemblance to some of the finer points practiced by the Big Three, details that never even made the papers.

    Charlotte says: "Top drawer entertainment - as usual!"
    "excellent"
    Overall

    Finally...a great book with great plot and character development...a book that drives the reader to WANT to 'turn the page'.

    Excellent narration. Unsurpassed for cop drama dramatization.

    Choose this one for a great ride!

    For a group of RAF ex-comrades, it is to be the reunion to end all reunions: a weekend in the Scottish castle where they were guinea pigs in a psychological experiment many years before. They haven't seen each other since. But the convivial atmosphere on the journey north is quickly shattered by the apparent suicide of one of their party. When a second death occurs, a sense of foreboding descends upon the group. It appears that the past is coming back to haunt them.

    Singin' Again says: "Never Takes Off"
    "Wait for Godot"
    Overall

    Can't this author tell a story?? I'm on chapter 44; plot development nil; two old men wandering around asking questions; the responders just say "I don't know anything" again and again. No new information. Just wandering around with some insinuation about what happened 25 years ago.

    Waiting for Godot had more plot development than this loser. Sad, because the reader was excellent!

    Let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave. These ominous words, slashed from the pages of a book of Psalms, are the last threat that the darling of London society, Sir Edward Grey, receives from his killer. Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward collapses and dies at his London home, in the presence of his wife, Julia, and a roomful of dinner guests.

    Parusski says: "Happily surprised"
    "Slow plot development"
    Overall

    OK, I'm a man; I expect the plot to progress, and information shared. This book spends a lot of time setting the mood, much details, and did not "get on with it". This is not a good book for most men. We expect more bang for the buck. The reader was excellent throughout.

    When a priest with radical ideas and a parish council with traditional values lock horns over the beliefs they hold most sacred, there's bound to be controversy, and consequences. But murder crosses the line between committing a sin and committing a crime, turning a battle over faith into a battle for justice. And smack in the middle of the explosive case is Tulsa attorney Ben Kincaid.

    Marilyn Armstrong says: "Grabs you and doesn't let go!"
    "Don't waste your time"
    Overall

    I tried to listen to the entire book...to the retching point. Rambling, weak character development is rampant. When the author wants to push his own pro-abortion, pro-gay rights agenda, he conveniently uses a "biased southern ignorant red-neck" to spout murderous rage against physicians and abortion clinics. The author does his transparent best to make objections to abortion and gay/lesbian lifestyles appear ridiculous.

    The characters seem oblivious to the murder, and there is no reasonable pursuit of the obvious.

    Honestly, how does a book this bad ever get published?? Perhaps just for the catchy title; certainly not for the writing.
