    Griff Burkett has a multimillion-dollar contract with the Dallas Cowboys. But at the end of his football career, deep in debt, a crime kingpin offers him a chance to resolve his loans by throwing a game. Griff agrees, and walks into an FBI sting. After serving time, he finds only closed doors. Then he is summoned by eccentric millionaire Foster Speakman. Speakman, a recluse since a car accident left him crippled, is impotent. Deadly consequences ensue when he hires Burkett to impregnate his wife.

    Dave says: "Typically satisfying Sandra Brown novel"
    "not expected"
    Overall

    As a mystery, I enjoyed this book a lot more than some I've read recently. But reader be warned that it crosses the fine line into romance/erotica, so don't get this if you're not into that.

    In Los Angeles in 1988, a 16-year-old girl disappeared from her home and was later found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, but some of the evidence contradicted that scenario, and detectives came to believe this was in fact a murder. Despite a by-the-book investigation, no one was ever charged.

    Wheelman says: "Thoroughly enjoyable....."

    Overall

    I got this book on the strength of its reviews and was really surprised to find that I figured out "who did it" within the first few chapters, the non-main characters were boring and/or unoriginal, and that the narration was almost painful to listen to. I'm sure the narrator is great in othe books, but it sounded like he'd never read this book through before recording (listen to a sample to hear the sentences end in a weird inflexion).
    Just my opinion, of course....

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"
    "original but blah"
    Overall

    there are some interesting ideas here, but it's all a bit random. i find the narrative to be choppy, though it might be because of the narrator. i almost didn't get past the first 15 minutes because i found the narrative so choppy. the narrator's character voices are excellent, though.
