    In Ava’s dreams, her son, Noah, looks just the way she remembers him: a sweet two-year-old in rolled-up jeans and a red sweatshirt. When Ava wakes, the agonizing truth hits her all over again. Noah went missing two years ago, and his body has never been found. Almost everyone, including Ava’s semi-estranged husband, Wyatt, assumes the boy drowned after falling off the dock near their Church Island home. Ava has spent most of the past two years in and out of Seattle mental institutions, shattered by grief and unable to recall the details of Noah’s disappearance.

    Story

    I don't know what a previous reviewer was thinking when he said this book was a waste of money. Thankfully I didn't listen to him being a prior Lisa Jackson fan. All the previous reviewer focused on was the writing style.

    I thought "You Don't Want to Know" was a great thriller with so many twists and turns right to the very end that I was fascinated by the storyline. I couldn't wait to see who did it and how they were connected to the main character, Ava Garrison. One reviewer said he was tired of the main character's mood swings, etc. That was almost the entire point of what was going on in the book. Not saying anymore about that so I don't give away the plot.

    If you want a good psychological thriller, then listen to this book.

    The body of 92-two-year-old Jossi Goldberg, Holocaust survivor and American citizen, is found shot to death execution style in his house near Frankfurt. A five-digit number is scrawled in blood at the murder scene. The autopsy reveals an old and unsuccessfully covered tattoo on the corpse's arm - a blood type marker once used by Hitler's SS. Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are faced with a riddle. Was the old man not Jewish after all? Who was he, really?

    I Loved the story. This is not your typical generic storyline. Lots of twists and turns and mystery surrounding the characters.

    The third book in the series did not disappoint. Great seat of your pants action from start to finish. I am so glad I found this series and I am looking forward to the next. This rates right up there with Vince Flynn, Brad Thorn and Mark Greaney.

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    Story

    Michael Connelly once again writes a great story. The characters are well done and plot is intriguing. That being said, the narration was so horrific that I almost called my doctor for a Prozac prescription to get through the depressing narration. Titus Welliver made ZERO attempt to distinguish one character from another and his delivery was so dead pan that I almost gave up. Get this one on Kindle or buy the actual book folks.
