    The "Hot Kid" of the U.S. Marshals Service, Carl Webster maintains the law with a cool, showdown attitude. He's one of the richest creations in Elmore Leonard's half century of delivering the goods. From his appearances in the critically acclaimed novels The Hot Kid and Up in Honey's Room, Carl returns to lay down the law in a novella that originally appeared as a serial in the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

    I did enjoy the stories. Leonard is consistantly engrosing. Clark is an excellent narrator, but his voice is too hushed. I couldn't raise the volume on my iPod loud enough to listen in a public setting. However, I do recommend this listen as long as you are listening at home.

  • Victims: An Alex Delaware Novel

    Unraveling the madness behind L.A.’s most baffling and brutal homicides is what sleuthing psychologist Alex Delaware does best. And putting the good doctor through his thrilling paces is what mystery fiction’s #1 bestselling master of psychological suspense Jonathan Kellerman does with incomparable brilliance. Kellerman’s universally acclaimed novels blend the addictive rhythms of the classic police procedural with chilling glimpses into the darkest depths of the human condition. For the compelling proof, look no further than Victims....

    Story

    I should start by saying I have enjoyed reading Mr. Kellerman's, Alex Delaware series. For me listening to this book was less enjoyable. Far too much mindless dialog between characters, "She said. I said. She said. I said. She said..." I relate to the narrator, Mr. Rubinstein, as the voice of Alex - and other male characters. However, there is not enough tonal range in his voice for me to distinguish each character in an intensely dialog laden tale such as, Victims. I would rather read the book.

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    Story

    I enjoy MacDonald's works. Having traveled alot I have come to rely his short stoy-esque style. Always an attention grabber, never boring. Petkoff should be complimented on his wide range of voicings. He has a good sense of the characters. McGee seems irratable in this episode. Probally needs a girl friend or a case of Mike's Hard Lemonade...

    I read for 10,000 years before it got interesting again.
    Holter Graham did an excellent job narrating,
    Sherrilyn Kenyon is very imaginative, but please pick up the pace.

  • The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century

    In The Next 100 Years, Friedman turns his eye on the future. Drawing on a profound understanding of history and geopolitical patterns dating back to the Roman Empire, he shows that we are now, for the first time in half a millennium, experiencing the dawn of a new historical cycle.

    Richard says: "Good Start - slow end"
    "Predicting the Unpredictable"
    Overall

    I wanted to like this book. Sadly it's more liberal drivel than a analytical prediction. More like the Urantia Book of geo-politics. It would have been more practical to have covered a 25-30 year period in geo-political detail as this would be most useful for the reader and more crediable for the author.
