    Detective Alex Cross confronts his most terrifying nemesis ever - and his own worst fears - in this electrifying new thriller from the master of suspense, James Patterson.

    Doctor Steven says: "Overrated by the Author"
    "Narration a Disappointment"
    Overall

    Admittedly I've not read/listened to the Alex Cross books in chronological order. That being said by the time I started listening to Violets are Blue Alex Cross had become embodied by Peter J Fernandez. Violets is a sequel to Roses are Red narrated by Peter. To go from Roses to Violets is a disappointment. The person voicing Alex Cross while having a dramatic voice, reads much too quickly for Alex. Alex does nothing quickly he's a thinker and doesn't give away much. This narrator seems to be in a hurry to get the story over with. The story is the culmination of the Alex Cross/Kyle Craig story line begun in Roses are Red, it would have been served the story best to keep the same narrator.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "So Glad I Listened"
    Overall

    I read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and loved it. But I got hung up on all the Swedish names. It slowed the book down for me. So I decided to listen to Girl who played with fire. AWESOME! Simon Vance did a great job with all the funky words and with the voices. I love Lisbeth with a British accent. I hated the end when it just faded to silence. I can't wait to start the third book.
    I totally recommend this series to those who want a great story but don't want to struggle with the Swedish words. OR to any one who want to listen to a great story. So glad I did.

    Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante? The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction.

    Andrea D. Thomas says: "Loved It!"
    "Typical Alex Cross"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the latest Alex Cross book Cross Fire. Was concerned to discover a new reader in Andre Braugher but he did not disappoint. It's going to take a little while to totally get used to him but he did fine. Glad that there's some closure to Alex's hunt for one of his nemesis. Don't want to give anything away but I was happy at the end. Looking forward to the next chapter in the life of Alex and family.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Robert B. Wales says: "Same great Clancey - Great narration"
    "Excellent & Enthralling"
    Overall

    Clancy's books can be extremely technical and sometimes turn me off. This one kept me captivated from the beginning. Lou Diamond Phillips did an excellent job differentiating all the characters and moving the narrative along give the book an excellent pace. The story is so close to our reality that it's scary to think how easy a target America and the world is for determined terrorists. The ending of the book seemed like a prophecy about today's news. Clancy fans and non-fans alike will enjoy dead or alive.

    The Great War has ended at last. Archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, the distinguished Egyptologist, no longer fear for the life of their daring son, Ramses, now free from his dangerous wartime obligations to British Intelligence. Delightful new additions to the growing Emerson family and new wonders waiting to be discovered beneath the shifting Egyptian sands mark a time of new beginnings in Luxor.

    Competition Rider says: "Abriged to Incomprehensibility"
    "A disappointment for a huge Amelia Peabody fan"
    Overall

    I'm rediscovering the Amelia Peabody series via audio. Barbara Rosenblatt is an amazing actress. She has captured the characters brilliantly. The reason for my disappointment is that this book is only available in an abridged version. They left out large chunks of the book, the hero at the end wasn't a included as a character and ended the story with a chapter or more to go. If you truly want to enjoy Amelia & Co in this book - read it. Or find an unabridged version. You'll be glad you did.

    In her best-selling Amelia Peabody mysteries, author Elizabeth Peters has created an award-winning mixture of vivid archeological detail, finely-tuned suspense, and witty romance. This, the 12th Amelia Peabody mystery, opens in 1914. As the tides of war rise, Egypt is threatened by attacks. Espionage abounds, pulling in several members of the Peabody Emerson household even as they embark on a new archeological season.

    iphone reader says: "Excellent!"
    "My favorite Amelia Peabody Story"
    Overall

    After years of watching Ramsies, Nefret and David grow up here's where all the stories come together. Amelia is at her best protecting her son. Emerson grudgingly accepts his son as grown up. And the truth about Sethos is known. It's a great story of twists and turns set during World War I. Barbara Rosenblatt brings the characters to life. She's amazing and so are Amelia & Co.

    This adventure transports Amelia Peabody and her husband Emerson to Amarna, the rustic desert site where the two archaeologists first met, beginning the 13-year association that would take them from mayhem to murder in the Egyptian outback.

    Molly says: "Great Series, Greatest Narrator"
    "Excellent narrating, engaging characters"
    Overall

    I've fallen in love with the Amelia Peabody series. Peabody is a woman ahead of her time. Her relationship with Emerson and take on motherhood is refreshing for a period novel. The mysteries are fine. Barbara Rosenblatt is amazing in creating the voices of the characters. Even when I read a book in the series I hear her voice. What a great way to spend time listening to this fun story.

    FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. I never saw the end coming. Thought the naration was excellent in capturing the various characters. A most captivating story.

    When Spenser's closest ally, Hawk, is brutally injured and left for dead while protecting bookie Luther Gillespie, Spenser embarks on an epic journey to rehabilitate his friend in body and soul. Hawk, always proud, has never been dependent on anyone. Now he is forced to make connections: to the medical technology that will ensure his physical recovery, and to reinforce the tenuous emotional ties he has to those around him.

    Dan says: "Parody of Parker--Pass it by!"
    "Joe Montangna a Mistake"
    Overall

    I agree with the others. What were the publishers thinking having Joe Montangna read this book. He makes it almost unbearable to listen to. He's an actor who cannot change his voice or tone to personify a character. I never got into the plot of the book because the reader got in the way. Spenser & Hawk deserve better
