    The Statfire Breeze steams its way north toward the Gulf of Alaska, buffeted by crisp sea winds blowing down from the Arctic. Those on board are seeking peace, relaxation, adventure, escape. But there is no escape here in this place of unspoiled natural majesty. Because terror strolls the decks even in the brilliant light of day...and death is a conspicuous, unwelcome passenger. And a former Seattle policeman, a damaged homicide detective who has come to heal from fresh, stinging wounds...

    Too short, did not have enough intrigue, ebb and flow. As always Gene Engene did a great job telling the story.

    Story

    I drive a lot, and listening to books makes the time go very quickly. I am a huge fan of J.P. Beaumont. I am listening to each book in order. I like how the characters are built from book to book. This one has a great plot, and Gene Engene's narration is so good. He makes the characters come alive.

    Story

    The story was not Jance's best, but still kept you in suspense. I missed Seattle. And felt that J.P Beaumont was not at his best.
    As ALWAYS, Gene Engene's performance was so good. He pulls you into the story, so that you "see" all of the characters, and feel an integral part of the story. I love the continuity of the characters.
    Start "reading" at Book 1 to get the full story, otherwise you will never know the real truth about Ann Corley.

    Story

    I am addicted to the JP Beaumont series. I am taking them in order, and enjoying everyone. I love the continuity that each book follows on from past stories.
    Gene Engene does a great job. His narration gives word pictures of each character. If I was an artist, I could draw each one based on his characterizations.
    Thanks for allowing me miles of enjoyment on my otherwise stressful and boring drives to work.

    After a busted marriage kicks his drinking problem into overdrive and the LAPD unceremoniously dumps him, 35-year-old Jesse Stone's future looks bleak. So he's shocked when a small Massachusetts town called Paradise recruits him as police chief. He can't help wondering if this job is a genuine chance to start over, the kind of offer he can't refuse.Once on board, Jesse doesn't have to look for trouble in Paradise: it comes to him. For what is on the surface a quiet New England community quickly proves to be a crucible of political and moral corruption - replete with triple homicide, tight Boston mob ties, flamboyantly errant spouses, maddened militiamen, and a psychopath-about-town who has fixed his violent sights on the new lawman. Against all this, Jesse stands utterly alone, with no one to trust; even he and the woman he's seeing are like ships that pass in the night. He finds he must test his mettle and powers of command to emerge a local hero - or the deadest of dupes.

    Story

    I was hoping to hear Tom Selleck read the story, so I was probably disappointed anyway. I had never heard of Richard Masur.
    Sadly, an "A" story read by a "B" actor.

    The Dollmaker was the name of the serial killer who had stalked Los Angeles ruthlessly, leaving grisly calling cards on the faces of his victims. Now, with a single faultless shot, Harry Bosch thinks he has ended the city's nightmare.

    Barry says: "Wow! Excellent Bosch thriller!"
    "Keeps you on your toes"
    Overall

    Excellent suspense. Kept you going down rabbit trails, and didn't disappoint at the end.
