    In Deadly Stakes, police-academy-trained former reporter Ali Reynolds is contacted to investigate the grisly murder of a gold-digging divorcee on behalf of a woman accused of the crime. Lynn Martinson is dating the dead woman's ex-husband, and she and her boyfriend, Chip Ralston, have been charged. Ali is simultaneously drawn to the case of A. J. Sanders, a frightened teen with secrets of his own.

    Jean says: "Ali works as investigating reporter"
    "The "Stakes" were cooked to perfection"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Deadly Stakes the most enjoyable?

    I thought the story was well crafted, the action just right, the descriptions visual, and the characters alive. The production and narration were excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Deadly Stakes?

    When the kid discovers the lady out in the middle of nowhere. The author effectively painted the picture in vivid detail and communicated the angst of the discovery.

    Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck. He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France, where Hannibal will live with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki.

    I thought this story started a little slow. I had a difficult time gettibg to like Hannibal, but suddenly I found myself listening more and more.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    L. O. Pardue says: ""Rear Window" Meets "Gone Girl""

    Story

    I could neither identify or like the protagonist in the early going, but the writing was so well done and the reading perfect that I couldn't turn away. We'll done!
