    At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

    Snoodely says: "Intelligent, spooky thriller"
    "Well done"
    Overall

    I have been drawn into this series since the first book. The narration is excellent and the flow and pace is as good as it gets. I sincerely hope they continue writing more.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Ryan says: "Enjoyable, but a lot of setup"
    "I love a good, long book."
    Overall

    I'm sorry to say that this only a long book. The narration is fine to me but the pace of the story makes it almost painful.

    The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark best seller Presumed Innocent, Innocent continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, 20 years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.

    Suzn F says: "Terrific Book"
    "Dissapointed"
    Overall

    After listening to half of the book I still have not found a protaganist. There is simply no one to warm up to and pull for in the book. The narration is well done and has kept me listening far more than the material. I expected more and would not recommend it.

    Kate Cypher is revisiting her childhood home to care for her Alzheimer's-afflicted mother. She's avoided the place for years, fearful of childhood memories of her friend Del - dubbed Potato Girl by cruel classmates - whose murder 30 years prior was never solved. On the night Kate arrives, an eerily similar murder occurs, forcing Kate to confront her haunting memories.

    Marc says: "Promise not to listen to this narrator"

    Overall

    This book has the potential to be great but the narration is so flat that it brings the book down to "OK."
