    One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator - and a young man hits him on the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead, and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident." Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers, who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell. Remorse? Virgil isn't so sure....

    Bob says: "EXCELLENT!"
    "Another good listen by Sandford"
    Overall

    Virgil is definitely growing on me although I still prefer Lucas Davenport. I found that I was rewinding alot in the first part of the book because I couldn't keep the names of all the characters sorted out but as the book progressed, it came together. I always enjoy a book that makes me chuckle out loud and that f@*^ing Flowers does just that.

  • The Reversal: Harry Bosch, Book 16 (Mickey Haller, Book 3)

    Story

    Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change stripes and prosecute the high-profile retrial of a brutal child murder. After 24 years in prison, convicted killer Jason Jessup has been exonerated by new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch.

    Andrew Pollack says: "Brilliantly executed"
    "Haller and Bosch, an interesting combination"
    Overall

    Really enjoyed the book and a long time fan of Michael Connelly. My only problem was that after listening to so many Harry Bosch novels I often forgot that it was Haller's point of view/dialog, not Harry's, that I was listening to. Had to rewind a couple of times to straighten it out. Looking forward to Harry's next case and Haller is growing on me after several novels.

  • 61 Hours: A Jack Reacher Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 43 mins)
    • By Lee Child

    Story
    (1339)

    A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

    Gustavo says: "Make sure you have time before you start"
    "Typical Jack Reacher"
    Overall

    I've enjoyed all the Reacher novels in the past but I'm beginning to tire of the formula Mr. Child repeats for his novels. The plots are different, yet the same. While its fun to have a larger than life character in Jack, it's getting more and more unbelievable with each book. I read some complaints in other reviews about Dick Hill's narration but I disagree, I think he does a good job and embraces Jack Reacher's character.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "What a disappointment"
    Overall

    Don't waste your credit. Most of the reviews I read were spot on. Implausible, predictable, too long. The characters were awful, even Robert L. I was actually relieved when the narrator finally reached the epiloge. I'm not even sure why I finished the book, it was a painful listen at times.

    One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    Debbie McKelvey says: "Very Entertaining"
    "Don't miss this one"
    Overall

    Started out a bit slow but quickly pulls you into the story. Couldn't stop listening and Mr. Archer leaves no loose ends. Loved how he developed all the characters, especially Danny. The reader was very good.
