    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.

    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.

    Story

    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!

    In The Flame Alphabet, language is toxic to everyone but children. For adults this means no speaking, no reading, no writing, no listening—at least not without severe allergic reaction, depression or crippling pain.

    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.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. 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.

    Story

    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.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. The perspectives of the husband and wife are best shared by the narration. Excellent readers, I really believed these people and that is so necessary for the story.


    What other book might you compare Gone Girl to and why?

    There is no comparison for me. Maybe the movie 6th sense because of the twists you just don't see coming.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    I liked them and hated them both, as the author planned.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    WOW, pick one. The author really worked me over. I was sucked in and played like a harp!


    Any additional comments?

    I am so impressed with this story. I have read and listened to thousands of books in my life, and this one really knocked me over. The listener goes from having one perspective and really being behind a certain belief, then BAM! something crazy happens and you question the entire basis of what you originally thought. And then it happens again!! That might be a bit of a spoiler, but you still wont see it coming. GET THIS BOOK.
