    "Been a while since I had me a nice little whodunit," homicide detective Milo Sturgis tells Alex Delaware. But there's definitely nothing nice about the brutal tableau behind the yellow crime-scene tape. On a lonely lover's lane in the hills of Los Angeles, a young couple lies murdered in a car. Each bears a single gunshot wound to the head.

    If you could sum up Therapy in three words, what would they be?

    Worth the read


    What about John Rubenstein’s performance did you like?

    As usually he was a pleasure to listen to


    Any additional comments?

    I've enjoyed all the Alex Delaware stories I've read/listened to so far. I just discovered his character about a year ago. This one did seem to drag in places so it wasn't one of my favorites but still enjoyable.

  • The Dead Father

    The Dead Father is a gargantuan half-dead, half-alive, part mechanical, wise, vain, powerful being who still has hopes for himself - even while he is being dragged by means of a cable toward a mysterious goal. In this extraordinary novel, marked by the imaginative use of language that influenced a generation of fiction writers, Donald Barthelme offered a glimpse into his fictional universe.

    Welcome to Safe Haven, Wisconsin. Miles from everything, with one road in and out, this peaceful town has never needed a full-time police force. Until now.... A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven's only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, unless I knew they were into this type of book


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not another one like this


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    I love Phil Gigante. His performances are always great. That was the main reason I purchased this book. I had never read a Jack Kilborn novel before. I will check out his other books. I just may not purchase.


    Do you think Afraid needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I don't think there is anything worth following up.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank God for Phil Gigante or I never would have listened to the whole book!

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

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

    Yes. Anyone who had read a Koontz book would enjoy this.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There was alot of suspense and it was a great supernatural story


    Have you listened to any of Steven Weber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Steven Weber is one of my favorite narrators. He can sound like a whole cast all on his own!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I made me sit on the edge of my sit. I had to listen to it all at once. I went through my day listening in my car, then into work, then in my car, then at home. Went to sleep pretty late that night.


    Any additional comments?

    I used to read Dean Koontz books when he wrote one word title books. They all started to have the same thread in them and I couldn't remember which one word title went with which book. I'm glad I decided to give this one a try. It was a good old fashion supernatural suspense story.
