    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A good book, a little slow to start, but picked up and got very interesting.


    What other book might you compare The Kill Clause to and why?

    "You're Next" is another Hurwitz book that's even better, especially in audible format. A bit long, but gripping.

    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?

    What disappointed you about Gone Girl?

    I didn't like any of the characters, and they didn't get any more likeable as the book went on. I really didn't like the ending!


    What was most disappointing about Gillian Flynn’s story?

    The ending


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

    Narrators were okay.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None that I can name. I would not recommend this to anybody else, and I'm disappointed that I paid for the Audible copy

    In Brooklyn, a female jogger is brutally raped; the assailants are convicted and later exonerated by the Kings County DA. Now the guilty are filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the city of New York, the police, and the two assistant DAs who tried the case. While the cops and the criminal justice system are under media assault and opportunist political demagoguery, Karp has suspicions that there is corruption within his own office.

    What would have made Fury better?

    Since the first 1/3 of the book was taken up by explaining who/what happened in the previous books, I was slogging along until it began to pick up. Still not my fav, but tolerable. I don't know why the entire background of previous books had to be explained to the reader before the story could begin.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not a Tannenbaum


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Good pacing, good speed of reading, good emphasis


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Intriguing story
