    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "This is why we listen - perfect "Strike""

    The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.

    James Dickey takes you down the river. When you are done, you will be battered, bruised, broken and in awe. Will Patton was spot on. The movie is for the timid - listen to this book.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    This is well done - by Flynn and by the narrators. It is over the top at times but it kept my interest. Great twists and turns but there's not a redeeming character to be found.

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    Jennie says: "Unbelievably riveting!"

    Story

    Shackleton is one of my heroes and this book is the reason. I have read twice it and listened to it once. Simon Prebble is the perfect narrator and takes the listener all the way to the Antarctic.

    Even as we learn about the flaws and failures of these men we see their courage and their will to survive. You will be amazed - listen to this book. Should be required reading!

    When an elderly local woman is found poisoned, Sheriff Walt Longmire begins an investigation that soon has him ensnared in a deadly spider's web.

    After the presidents' helicopter, Marine One, goes down in a brutal thunderstorm, the government blames the European manufacturer of the helicopter, accusing them of killing the president. Senate investigations and Justice Department accusations multiply as Mike Nolan, a Marine Corps reserve helicopter pilot and trial attorney in civilian life, is hired to defend the company from the criminal investigations and a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the most notorious lawyer in America.

    I know many enjoyed this book - but didn't work for me. The story (mystery) was not compelling and characters were dull. Try 'Term Limits' or other Vince Flynn is you like assassinations and helicopters.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    This book is full of complex and interesting characters - good and bad. Great story - you can sense that Woods had a personal connection with this early work. This book was written in 1981 but it holds up. Credit worthy - yep!

    When Charles "Shake" Bouchon, professional wheel man, walks out of prison after a three-year stretch for grand theft auto, he's got only two problems: he's too nice a guy for the life he's led and not nice enough for any other. So he says yes when he's asked to run a simple errand for his former boss and lover, Alexandra Ilandryan, the formidable pakhan of the Armenian mob in Los Angeles.

    Richard Delman says: "A whole lotta fun."

    I liked the story - moves fast. It's a bit quirky but entertaining. If you find yourself sometimes cheering for the bad guys you should give this one a 'shot'.

    Maybe, I just don't get it but this is the second Reacher book that I thought was just mediocre. The story was slow and boring and the bad guys were not believable. I tried but I could not get into the story. I would say pass on this one.

    Story

    This is not a light read but it is engrossing and educational. Personally, I thought Ray Porter did an excellent job. It's hard to find a character that you like but all are multi-dimensional and exotic. This is my first Winslow book and I will do some research a try another one. It's not a feel good story but it is worth a credit.
