    There's a killer on the loose in San Francisco, and he's stalking newlyweds. When the usual procedures to stop him don't work, four women, each holding a piece of the puzzle, form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case. 1st to Die is the start of a new series of crime thrillers from James Patterson.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening to 1st to Die and found myself staying in my car to finish chapters many times after arriving at my destination. I recommend skipping over the prologue (maybe read it last). It was unnecessary, and it made it painfully obvious that in the end, Chris -- I'll stop now. The author can spoil it for you, but I won't. Trust me. Skip over the first four minutes. (She's an inspector with SFPD, the only woman, divorced, and looking back to the "honeymoon murders". Now you have not missed anything crucial.)

    Clanton, Mississippi. The life of a 10-year-old black girl is shattered by 2 drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her father acquires an assault riffle - and takes justice into his own outraged hands. Also available abridged.

    Overall

    Grisham's Mississippi novels are terrific, and A Time to Kill follows suit. What sets the Audible version apart is this narrator, Michael Beck. No, narrator is the wrong word. Beck performs the book. Beck acts out every character in such a way that you have to think that the visual images in a movie would do the story a disservice. I have to think that Beck could make a reading of the dictionary sound riveting and have a different voice for every entry. Combine Beck's performance with the captivating story in "A Time to Kill", and you have a very compelling 16-hour audio book that will go by in a flash.

    In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

    "Incredible Reader Michael Beck"
    Overall

    For its production value, this is the best audio book I have listened to. The reader uses a different voice and accent for each character so that it sounds like you have a different reader for each part. There is never any confusion as to who is speaking. As for the story, I predicted the villain by halfway through, so I would have been more pleased with more suspense. However, the puzzle of the book title had me thinking one way up until the last chapter, when I realized who the last juror really was.
