    Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help local law enforcement on the worst of cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the region’s most trusted investigative positions. Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop in the Midwest. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good Paul and his team see the case file or work the murder. Their lives intersect when Ann arrives to pass a case off her desk and onto his.

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

    I would recommend it cautiously, as compared to other books from this author.


    Any additional comments?

    This book didn't have me in that "can't wait to see what happens next" mode until the last third of the book. If I wasn't an avid Henderson fan, I probably would have left it and gone to another book. That being said, it didn't lessen my appreciation for this author.

    This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was a long story that kept me waiting for someone to change their perception of God and Jesus, but only 1 changed - on his deathbed.


    Any additional comments?

    The other Francine Rivers books I have purchased are pretty good! But this one has me questioning if I would waste another credit, or any more money, on any more of her books.
    The narrator was good!

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I found it to be intriguing, but I guess I expected it to end with a more verbal statement than with the subtle " treat people better" unspoken message. It was an excellent platform that, in my opinion, could have been used to deliver the message loudly.


    What other book might you compare Nineteen Minutes to and why?

    Can't think of any at this time.


    What does Carol Monda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was good -- I could easily identify the characters and the emotional element of what was being said.


    Was Nineteen Minutes worth the listening time?

    Yes -- although not my favorite Jodi Picoult book, I'm not sorry I purchased or listened to it.
