    Karen Hollander is a celebrated attorney who recently removed herself from consideration for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Her reasons have their roots in 1968 - an episode she’s managed to keep secret for more than 40 years. Now, with the imminent publication of her memoir, she’s about to let the world in on that shocking secret - as soon as she can track down the answers to a few crucial last questions. A resonant coming-of-age story and a thrilling political mystery, True Believers is Kurt Andersen’s most ambitious novel to date, introducing a brilliant, funny, and irresistible new heroine to contemporary fiction.

    Would you listen to True Believers again? Why?

    It seemed hard to get into the first chapter or two, but the more you listen, the more intrigued you get. By the second half of the book, you're hooked. Not sure I would listen to it again, though, since I know how it turns out.

That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    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."
    "Not up to the Coulter I've enjoyed in the past"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Didn't care for the multiple voices and the way they "read" their lines. Did not seem natural. Also the plot and the characters were unrealistic.
    I've enjoyed other Coulter books, so this one did not meet my expectations.


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

    Not as good.


    What didn’t you like about Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ’s performance?

    Seemed to be "reading" a script - did not sound natural.

    In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it.

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

    Riveting - couldn't put it down and I was sad when it was over.


    What does Michael Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Easy to listen to; appropriate for the story. I think this Grisham/Beck pairing is excellent.
