    In the latest from the best selling author of Kiss the Girls and When the Wind Blows, Alex Cross is on the trail of a brilliant criminal known only as the Mastermind. Browse more Patterson.

    Clara says: "Excellent"
    "Good but unfinished"
    Overall

    This is my second novel by Patterson and "First to die" (what I read, not listened) is more complete. I wonder if the original book was split in two, being "Roses are red" just the first part and "Violets are blue" the second one. Unfortunately Audible does not have "Violets" for the moment. It leaves a flavour of incompleteness.

    Denver police detective Gabe Wager is working with an eager, inexperienced partner on a sordid narcotics case. But, the suspect they're after is purely professional...and purely evil. Follow this nonstop thriller as Wager painstakingly fits the pieces together before moving in for the bust.

    Christopher says: "Gritty reality"
    "Could not finish it"
    Overall

    I totally agree with Lisa. I tried very hard to follow the action and started the novel once and again but I had to give up. Do not waste your credit on this one.

    Six children have escaped government experiments, and a frightening brush with death. Living out in the world for the first time, they yearn to be reunited with Kit and Frannie, the couple who saved their lives, and to return to the cabin known as the Lake House. But before they can get there, they will face a horrifying evil, for one man has survived the laboratory that bred the flying children, and he is obsessed with reclaiming them for a new round of experiments - with an even more deadly outcome.

    Shannon says: "The Lake House, by James Patterson"
    "Amazingly stupid"
    Overall

    The worst Audible I have ever tried to listen to (but never finished). A waste of time and neurons. I wish I had read Shannon's review: I really have regreted this download.

    A trail of ominous clues comprise a mystery that leads from an English hamlet to the city of Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. The trap is set, the game is afoot; but can Holmes and Russell catch an elusive killer, or has the murderer caught them?

    Susan says: "Best Holmes since Arthur Conan Doyle"
    "Unbearable!"
    Overall

    I fully agree with Scott (Melrose, MA, USA) and I would add that the narrator does not help much.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "Sectarian"
    Overall

    Very good plot with a great dose of imagination and really easy to hear to. A pity that fiction is mixed with reality and Opus Dei is presented in a total unrealistic and sectarian way. The novel would have been really great if both the guardians and the attackers of the holy grial were as fictious as the grial itself.

    When Dave Robicheaux, learns that an old friend, Father Jimmie Dolan has been the victim of a particularly brutal assault, he returns to New Orleans to investigate, if only unofficially.

    Joseph says: "Another winner."
    "I could not finish the fisrt part"
    Overall

    I totally agree with Brenda. I thought my extreme difficulty in understanding the reader was due to english not beeing my mother language. I have been very reassured to know that some american people also finds this audio confusing and difficult to understand. I will not download any other book by the same reader.

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Don't be scared"
    Overall

    I was scared about the length of this audio, so I chose my holidays to download it. Don't be scared: it becames much shorter than most. You will need to listen to it... quickly!

    Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. firm with 800 lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was 3 years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience. But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Also available abridged.

    Tom says: "A Good Read"
    "Excellent Muller!"
    Overall

    John Grisham is always good, and the Street Lawyer is no different. It is the reader who was a magnificent surprise to me. From now on I am not sure if I will search my audible books by "John Grisahm" or by "Frank Muller"

    Tami Hoag, author of Dust to Dust, returns with "a definite winner," says Booklist. In a trailer in a Florida swamp, time is running out for Erin Seabright. A pawn in a kidnapper's terrifying game for a ransom no one can pay, her last hope is a washed-up ex-cop who has already lost it all - not once, but twice.

    Robert says: "Wow!"
    "Not so good, from my point of view"
    Overall

    Sorry to add some shadows over an unanimous opinion. It could be my own lack of concentration, of course, but I had to make some effort to go on listening. I recognize the second part is brilliant but before reaching it one must suffer a too repetitive and introspetive section. Some of the characters of the book are poorly delineated and just confuse the reader (or listener). The plot and the way it is resolved in the end seem a bit naive to me. Half of the book could be spared.

    Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

    Harris says: "Dashel Hammet Redux"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    Good story, good reading and good music. I will add Michael Connelly to my favorites.
