    Story
    (6)

    The son of a bohemian Irish-American mother and an Egyptian father who disappeared when he was three, Ahmad turned to Islam at the age of 11. He feels his faith threatened by the materialistic, hedonistic society he sees around him in the slumping factory town of New Prospect, in northern New Jersey.

    Lyn says: "Updike vindicated"
    "Never got exciting"
    Overall

    The story is painfully detailed. I wish the suspense was there. This book never made me 'want more'. My expectations when ordering this book was to understand the mind of a terrorist. This book didn’t do that. Most audio books I have listened to are wonderful. This one was boring for me. Just not my cup of tea.

    When a cop's body is found burned and decapitated, the last thing Andy Carpenter expected is for a stranger to waltz into his office and admit to the crime. For the wise-cracking millionaire defense attorney suffering from "lawyer's block", the case looks like a no-brainer...until the cops pick up another suspect: Andy's lead P.I., Laurie Collins, who happens to be the love of his life.

    A. Wright says: "Read series in order"

    Overall

    Loved it. Loved the story. Kept me interested. Loved the humor.

    Sometimes in life you need a little breathing room, especially when your life has just fallen apart. Dr. Isabel Favor, America's diva of self help, knows this all too well. She's lost her fiancé to an earth mother, her accountant has absconded with her money, and her self-help empire is in shambles. She flees the country to Tuscany, waiting for life to settle down, but the biggest disaster lies just ahead. On one unforgettable night, she's about to meet Lorenzo Gage, Hollywood's favorite villain.

    Brenda says: "An enjoyable read."
    "Pretty Typical"
    Overall

    Wish there had been more suspense and mystery. Decent romance but fairly predictable.

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    "Loved It! Thrilling! Wanted More!"
    Overall

    Get book. Loved the story line, twists, and conclusion. Couldn't wait to listen to the story.
