    Drew Danner, a crime novelist with a house off L.A.'s storied Mulholland Drive, awakens in a hospital bed with a scar on his head and no memory of being found convulsing over his ex-fiancee's body the previous night. He was discovered holding a knife, her blood beneath his nails. He himself doesn't know whether he's guilty or innocent. To reconstruct the story, the writer must now become the protagonist, searching the corridors of his life and the city he loves.

    This book has been a very enjoyable listen every time I hear it. If I'm bored or can't find any new books to buy that sparks my interest, "The Crime Writter" is one of the top 20 books I turn to as a dependable, interesting listen.

    I listen to this book every few months. It's a comfort book! I know the story by heart and this won't win any literary awards but "Agnes and the Hitman" is like an old friend I look forward to visiting.

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story

    My mind wandered a little too much while listening to Inferno so I would have to rewind and re-listen to the story. I'm not sure if it was the story or the reader. As always, Dan Brown interjected snippets of history and interesting factoids which I enjoyed. I wanted to give 3.5 stars.

    From Atlanta's wealthiest suburbs to its stark inner-city housing projects, a killer has crossed the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries, too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael's lover before she became his enemy.

    Maybe it was those extra five pounds I'd gained. Maybe it was because I was about to turn the same age my mother was when I lost her. Maybe it was because my husband and I seemed to be running out of things to say to each other. But when the anonymous online study called "Marriage in the 21st Century" showed up in my inbox, I had no idea how profoundly it would change my life. It wasn't long before I was assigned both a pseudonym and a caseworker. And, just like that, I found myself answering questions.

    If you have the perfect life/marriage don't read this!

    For some reason, I wasn't expecting to like this book, much less end up with a new perspective on life! As a wife and mother, I could relate to the main character while she questioned her life choices. For anyone who wonders about the ???paths not taken???, this is a really good read.
