    A cold-blooded kidnapper has been playing a twisted game with a terrified Minnesota town. Now a respected member of the community stands accused of a startling act of evil. But when a second boy disappears, a frightened public demands to know: Have the police caught the wrong man? Is the nightmare continuing...or just beginning? Prosecutor Ellen North believes she’s building a case against a guilty man - and that he has an accomplice in the shadows. As she prepares for the trial of her career, Ellen suddenly finds herself swept into a cruel contest of twisted wits.

    Story

    Reader's voice was boring. Little excitement in her voice and when she tried to be a male voice it was anything but convincing. Mostly though the story line faded into the background while tid bits not relevant to the story were explored to exhaustion. At times I couldn't remember the story line. Could have done the story in 1/3 the time as most was not needed and not interesting. First time for this author and am not sure I'd try her again.

    It was a time when anything seemed possible, instant wealth, glittering fame, fabulous luxury, and for a run of magical weeks in the spring and summer of 1920, Charles Ponzi made it all come true. Promising to double investors' money in three months, the dapper, charming Ponzi raised the "rob Peter to pay Paul" scam to an art form and raked in millions at his office in downtown Boston.

    I found this book to be VERY interesting and like Ponzi thru out the book. I only wish the story was longer. It was a good way to learn about the man, and frankly I liked him very much.

    It’s a few days before Christmas when Detective Shane Scully and his wife, Alexa, respond to a call in the Hollywood Hills. The crime scene is the pristine backyard swimming pool of a once immaculate mansion on Skyline Drive, the site of an infamous murder decades prior, in which a family was killed in cold blood on Christmas Eve. In the ensuing years, the house has been shuttered and left exactly as it stood on that terrible night.

    Zoe C. Johnson says: "The best of the Shane Scully series"

    First time with this author. Love the narration by Scott Brick. Story line was good, interesting and kept me listening. Only wish it was longer! Would be fun to see this in a movie. Will order more from this author mainly because Scott Brick does the narration.

    Lee Child is a fine author and Dick Hill is easy to listen to. I've read many of these, produced by both of them, and enjoy them. This was no exception. Well worth the listen and well worth the price!

    Story

    Have never tried this author before but if this is a sample l may just move on to another author more suited to 'legal thrillers.' The author appears to believe that lots of sex and lots of characters make for a more interesting story. Sometimes it's hard to find the 'mystery' because of all the distraction, which also makes the story longer then needs be. In addition, there seems to be a lot of discussion of 'black and white' issues relating to race but not all that related to the actual story line. Could have done without so much sex, race remarks and so many characters.

    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    Story

    I didn't realize this was a series as it was my first. However, I will now look for more of the same. Another reader said he tired of the phrase "Reacher said nothing." I have to agree. I laughed everytime I heard it just because of the other persons comments. But hey...the author could have worked a little harder to find a few different phrases. Having said that...I could manage to live with it and found the story well done, interesting and it kept my attention. Well worth the download.

    Jason Steadman is a 30-year-old sales executive living in Boston and working for an electronics giant, a competitor to Sony and Panasonic. He's a witty, charismatic guy who's well liked at the office, but he lacks the "killer instinct" necessary to move up the corporate ladder. To the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks as if his career has hit a ceiling. Jason's been sidelined.

    Story

    I like Joseph Finder each time I download one of his books and especially when Scott Brick reads them. Looking for more of the same to go with the others I listened to of his (A Company Man, High Crimes). Only problem is many of his books are only 6 or 7 hrs. long and it just isn't worth a full credit for such a short time. Other than that, I'd choose his books any time. Interesting, catchy, well read, endings not expected.

    The book was "just ok." I like the author but the story went on too long and wasn't all that believable. This isn't his best. OK for a long drive but won't be one you will remember all that long.

    The rapist left an indelible mark on their lives; now three women must live with the consequences of his violent brutality. But when he's murdered on his way to trial, the police investigation takes a scorching new focus. All three women had a reason to hate him. All three wanted him dead. But which one of them murdered him? Explosively plotted and unnervingly suspenseful, The Survivors Club sizzles from beginning to end.

When they ran him out of town 17 years ago, he left behind a wife with two daughters and a family that never wanted to see him again. When he returns, he brings trouble in the form of a lot of suspicious money. As Barbara attempts to counsel Mitch's wife about the money, a second form of trouble arrives: Mitch's corpse.

    Story never seems to really get off the ground. No real excitement at any time. Seems to just drag on. Many details not related to the main story add to the slow moving feeling. Must be better options around so try another.
