    A serial killer is on the loose, and it’s up to FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock to bring him down. They soon discover the killer has blood ties to an infamous and now long-dead monster. Savich and Sherlock are joined by agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight, and the chase is on. At the same time, Agent Lucy Carlyle learns from her dying father that her grandfather didn’t simply walk away from his family twenty-two years ago: he was, in fact, murdered by his wife, Lucy’s grandmother.

    Jacquelyn Thomas says: "Story good, female reader almost ruined it."

    Story

    This was my first book by the author, highly recommended by my wife. I was disappointed with both the implausible story line(s) and the narration. The book seemed to consist of two unrelated stories (a magic ring and a serial murderer) unsuccessfully knitted together for no apparent reason. I found the dialog stilted and unnatural, made worse by the use of female and male narrators. I expected the female narrator to do the female voices and the male reader to do the male voices, of course, but this was not always the case. The male narrator often sounded like he was simply reading the words without actually being involved in the story. The female narrator was much better as an "audio actress." I enjoy crime fiction by authors such as Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.

    Story

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Story

    Unlike past Jack Reacher stories, this one is a plodder. Way too much talk and very little action. Nothing much happens until the last 10% of the story, and it's much too little too late. Also, I understand that Jack has a broken nose in the story but the reader sound like he has a terrible cold throughout the book when he speaks Jack's lines. It becomes extremely annoying after an hour or so, adding to my overall disappointment with the story.

    They’re one of the country’s most telegenic couples: beloved TV journalist Sara Lowell and New York’s hottest basketball star, Michael Silverman. Their family and social connections tie them to the highest echelons of the political, medical, and sports worlds - threads that will tangle them up in one of the most controversial and deadly issues of our time. In a clinic on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, a doctor has dedicated his life to eradicating a divisive and devastating disease. One by one, his patients are getting well.

    Story

    Harlan Coben is one of my favorite authors. I've read several of his novels and I especially enjoy the Myron Bolitar series. I usually don't like "issue" stories because they tend to be "preachy" and this story is definitely one of those. Like most "issue" stories, it will probably appeal to a certain group of people, however.
