    After a woman is brutally slain, investigators bring psychiatrist Joe O'Loughlin in for expert consultation. Joe is shocked to discover the dead woman is a former patient of his who cried rape when he rebuffed her sexual advances. Citing doctor/patient confidentiality, Joe hides this information. But the truth emerges, and suddenly he is the prime suspect.

    If you could sum up Suspect in three words, what would they be?

    Psychological, Smart, Consistent


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not necessarily a thrill-ride, but smart and intriguing. I found myself invested in the characters and the outcome.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Prebble – was your favorite?

    I like little Charly. I read book 4 first and know about this family and characters already, so seeing her as a little girl was fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I read a later book first and find that the Parkinson's and cutting are a continued theme. Not bad, just an observation. I like the narrators accent and style. I also like the quick explanations of psychology experiments or principles throughout. I am a Psych major and appreciate the effort. Great characters and narration. I intend to listen to the whole series.

    Haunted by the past, John Rain kills to order and leaves no trace, but the death at his hand of an old man has unforeseen complications - and soon Rain is trying to protect not just his carefully preserved anonymity but his own life and those of the people he cares for. A stunning, page-turning reinvention of the hitman thriller, Rain Fall marks the introduction of a compelling new series character and major new thriller writing career.

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    I was so excited for this to come out. If you have listened to the other two, you wont bother reading reviews, you are just going to get it. You wont be dissapointed. It is long, and thorough and I enjoyed every minute. My only complaint is the same as the first two- Jennifer Ikeda is an excellent narrator and does voices like no one else. I just feel like she is too dramatic and breathy during the narration parts, its a little obnoxious. LOVED THE BOOK, LOVE JENNIFER.

    Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

    Story

    I enjoyed the plot, the versatile narration and the characters. It was a little scattered with a particular kiss thrown in for I have no idea what reason. Also, the end was too quick and easy. Not as good as it could have been for the depth of the plot. Also her amnesia seems convenient and not well handled by the author. It was a good story and I stayed listening, but it could have been better. It was compared to Gone Girl, which was a huge error. Nothing is even close to that story.

    Daniel Hecht has created a plausible, heart-stopping ghost thriller. Relying on the science of parapsychology to spine-tingling effect, he brings to life a remarkably compelling character in Cree Black, as well as the ghosts she confronts.

    This book was very entertaining and well-read. It IS a ghost story so expect it to be a little out there. It was not of the eyerolling "come on" nature, but believable enough to keep listening for the next piece of the puzzle. Very impressed with the narration, lots of different voices and a great pace. I downloaded the next book immediately!

    I couldn't get through this one. I didn't make it past 2 hours. Maybe I will give it another shot on paper so I can get through it faster. I felt it was a waste to listen. Nothing really happened in the first 2 hours. Maybe other listeners got far in enough to get to the story, I didn't have the patience.

    I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her.I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and flame. Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bests eller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

    Story

    I might like to be more sensitive, but the narrator ruined this for me. I read the first book and couldn't wait for the second story. This narrator killed it. Who directed this and why didn't they correct her? The teenage angst and drama is inherent in the story and the narrator oooooozzzed drama and angst in every sentence. Way over done. Good story, I say read it on paper.

    Prostitution has been legal in Rhode Island for more than a decade; Liam Mulligan, an old-school investigative reporter at dying Providence newspaper, suspects the governor has been taking payoffs to keep it that way. But this isn’t the only story making headlines… a child’s severed arm is discovered in a pile of garbage at a pig farm. Then the body of an internet pornographer is found sprawled on the rocks at the base of Newport’s famous Cliff Walk.

    Richard Delman says: "DeSilva and Workman are addicting."

    I really like L.S.A. Mulligan (don't call him Liam!). And Jeff Woodman is such a cool narrator. Fun, easy listen. Shorter than I prefer, but like Rouge Island, I didn't feel like anything was missing. I want more Mulligan!!!

    Liam Mulligan is as old school as a newspaper man gets. His beat is Providence, Rhode Island, and he knows every street and alley. He knows the priests and prostitutes, the cops and street thugs. He knows the mobsters and politicians--who are pretty much one and the same. Someone is systematically burning down the neighborhood Mulligan grew up in, people he knows and loves are perishing in the flames, and the public is on the verge of panic.

    This is a good series. I enjoy the character and the narrator is great. Its a short listen, which I neither like or dislike. I would like more, but the story isn't missing anything so I am on the fence. Can't wait for more from DeSilva.

Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    I love the duo of Scalzi and Wheaton. There are a few parts of the story that bored me, but the concept is really fun. Worth a listen if you don't expect anything enlightening or serious. I enjoyed the characters without being terribly invested. I will always choose Scalzi, even though Sci-Fi isn't my favorite genre. Agent to the Stars was better, but this wasn't bad. Worth the credit.

    The narrator has a nice voice, but her cadence annoyed me a bit. That didn't stop me from wanting to finish the story. I am not a big sci-fi fan, but this story was both outlandish (special powers and secret enforcement societies) and believable (Myfawnie's discovery of herself and her confidence). I enjoyed the story, but might have preferred to read it. Worth a credit if you can overlook a repetitive cadence from a pleasant voice, which I could and am glad I did.
