    Stone Barrington is back in New York, and after a rather harrowing sojourn in Key West, he's looking to stay closer to home and work on some simple divorce and custody cases for Woodman & Weld. But when he crosses paths with a fetching Broadway actress-and sometime lip model- Stone gets a little more deeply involved with business than he'd expected. When his new lady love turns out to be a lady with a shady past, Stone and downtown cop Dino Bacchetti realize that her beauty may have an unusually high price.

    A little too sexually graphic for my taste.

    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.

    What did you like best about The Burning Room? What did you like least?

    I have read/ listened to every Harry Bosch book in the series. This story is good but the narration is just so boring. It makes it hard to focus on the plot.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Titus Welliver?

    Anyone


    Was The Burning Room worth the listening time?

    It's a good story, but I should've read it instead.

    Surrounded by her children, her extended family, and what seems like half of Colleton County, a semi-conscious Rachel breaks weeks of pained silence with snippets of stories as randomly pieced together as a well-worn patchwork quilt. But the Knott family's joy quickly gives way to shock: less than an hour later, Aunt Rachel is found dead in her bed, smothered with a pillow. Who would kill a woman on her deathbed? Was it an act of mercy, or murder?

    What did you like best about Designated Daughters? What did you like least?

    I enjoy the Deborah Knott series, especially the stories about her rural life and family.

    I did not enjoy the narration at all.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator
