    Jack Irish - lawyer, gambler, and people-finder - is hunting down the villains who hijacked the winnings from his latest betting coup when he is hired by a mystery client to find missing barman Robbie Colbourne. But Robbie turns up dead of a drug overdose.

    "Dead Point"
    Overall

    Hard to follow the language and the characters. I will have to listen again to figure out the ending.
    Some of the words like bloks for guys and notes for dollar bills. I still was curious to how it was going to end. I believe it had 2 endings.

    From mega-selling author Jodi Picoult comes an engrossing tale of medical morality and parental responsibility. Charlotte O'Keefe's daughter is born with osteogenesis imperfecta and will endure endless broken bones. Facing unthinkable medical costs, Charlotte considers a troubling solution. If she goes to court and says she would have terminated the pregnancy had she known of her daughter's condition, she might get enough money for a lifetime of medical expenses.
