    The call comes at midnight. It looks like a tragic and petty murder - a rising star in San Francisco's legal firmament found shot in a dark alley. But for homicide lieutenant Abe Glitsky, the crime cuts horribly close to home - unknown to anyone, the victim was his daughter. Seething, Glitsky leans hard on his only suspect - a homeless heroin addict found lingering over his daughter's body, with her jewelry in his pocket and a smoking gun in his hand.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It wasn't a problem with the book. It was a problem with the reader.


    If you’ve listened to books by John Lescroart before, how does this one compare?

    OK


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Lawrence’s performances?

    I will look for Mr. Lawrence's name and not get that book.


    What character would you cut from The Hearing?

    xxx


    Any additional comments?

    A federal judge is murdered, found shot to death in his home - together with the body of his mistress. The crime grips San Francisco. To homicide inspector Devin Juhle, it first looks like a simple case of a wife's jealousy and rage. But Juhle's investigation reveals that the judge had powerful enemies...some of whom may have been willing to kill to prevent him from meddling in their affairs.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The reader needs to learn to use more inflection and tone.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not so much on the edge but involved.


    How could the performance have been better?

    See above


    Could you see The Hunt Club being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Possibly a TV series

    Galapagos takes the listener back one million years to A.D. 1986. A simple vacation cruise suddenly becomes an evolutionary journey. Thanks to an apocalypse, a small group of survivors stranded on the Galapagos Islands are about to become the progenitors of a brave, new, totally different human race. Kurt Vonnegut, America's master satirist, looks at our world and shows us all that is sadly, madly awry - and all that is worth saving.

    When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club - a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following.

    Ilana says: "The first rule about Fight Club is..."
    "Dumb"
    Overall

    Couldn't even finish it.

    You could use this as a sedative read and it would last you over two years.

    Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In a championship game, to the surprise and dismay of everyone, Rick actually got into the game and then provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughingstock and, of course, was immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams. But against enormous odds, Arnie finally locates another team that will have him: the mighty Panthers of Parma, Italy.

    It was a pleasant, feel good read.

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    Graham S. Stafford says: "Love the Camel Club"

    Overall

    No one is this good or lucky. Forget that and just go with the flow.
