this is one of Nora Roberts all time great ones.
Tucker Longstreet, his zest of life.
he is not the best reader,but he grows on you. Carolyn McCormick did the abridged version and she always does a great job.
Don't cross the line!
I have waited 10 years for this full length version to be converted to download.
I love Angela Dawe male reading voice and found this author. Good use of imagination and this fantasy genre. Had some humor and would like to see more i.e. charcoal briquet status
shorter version and a bit better twist on Christine Feehan's type stories
Lucas and the White Dragon. Jack our hero was great as she is tough as nails.
yes, I did and the part where Jack trades places makes you bring out a tissue.
I have been buying a few series out of order as I try a new author by sale or by rating code.This allows a listener not to have to invest in a series they may not like, but you have to go back to #1 if you really like the characters. Audible, please put more #1 books of series on sale.
Sensitive, entertaining and simple
Love Carter, Deadline, and Tommy. All bring the story to a series level. I am not sure if this author is for me, so I will not be buying the other books which don't have M.A. reading them.
I am on a MacLeod Andrew run. M.A. brought all the characters in this series to great life. His AKA Todd Haberkorn is for erotic and other genres which push the edge. His Nora Roberts and Robert Crais reads are wonderful
When Carter realized his article started all the destruction
this book was on sale to start me on the series...Audible, good idea as I did buy book #3 due to the cited humor from reviewers.
I am on a Tanya Eby run of books so this author came up. One reviewer I follow also read it. However, this book did not inspire me to get Jake and Amelia's story #1 & #3 books.
I am not a core mystery listener, so unlike many mystery fans who have strong opinions, I could not put my finger on what this story needed. It had a good outline, and to me, the listen came off just like an outline. It lacked or had too much of certain elements that a good editor should have caught, expounded or eliminated.
Ms Eby has really developed her deeper males voices now, hence the Eby run of books for me. Catch her on her Tatiana Sokolov reads, wonderful!
This was NOT a core romance! It had brutal sex scenes for our villain which was part of the mystery, but the romance was just an outline and only for-filled in the last quarter of the book. Telling a reader how much each character longed for their intended does not equal a romance story.
I loved the cat! This had a mystery to be sure, but our hero was a little too weak for my tastes. You must be in the mood for sarcastic humor on this one.
I purchased another book, one on sale, based on other reviewers liking this author before I actually listened to this one. Not sure if this author is for me. Reader is the reason I did take a chance on this author. Plus, reviewers said this had humor. For me, the jury is still out. I just got off a Philip Margolin run so this author maybe too domestic for me.
M.A. is a genius with voices and he saved this listen for me. He also reads as Todd Haberkorn for erotica/ romances. His work on Robert Crais Suspect was excellant.
sorry, no inspiration at all.
I am on a Angela Dawe listening binge and found this author's work. Pretty good story telling. Angela good range of voices brings this tale to life. If you read/listened to Linda Howards' Cry No More, this mini series runs along that story line. It has so much potential to add lots of different mysteries for our heroine to solve. It is not on the par of Ms Howard, but could get there. These stories are more like Tami Hoag current work in short format.
Book #4 is read by another reader, than Angela Dawe, so no. For me it is about the reader, not just the story. #1 read a bit like Ernest Hemingway very precise and fast. I am on #2 as I write this review, and it's reading like an outline so far. I don't know if the pace will pick up but I love the readers' voice so I don't care. I would think the author should add just a bit more to her stories as she has the talent to hold a listener.
this author can evoke lots of emotion in different scenes both in book #1 & 2, so she should expand just a bit more. i.e. in book #1 mike and our heroine could have had some good banter or humor as there was no romance in this novel. In book 2, our missing person's husband evokes so much emotion in the first few chapters that I am glued to my head set. I write this review to take a break.
actually the stories do fit TV series format. Used before "Gone But Not Forgotten"
This author is sold at my "buy now price, never a credit." and is good entertainment for the money.
Fast, Clever, and Tender! Starts out like Robert Redfords' 3 days of the Condor so if you like that premise, this will not disappoint. If you are a die hard mystery fan this may not be enough for you. However, it was entertaining and kept you tuned into the story.
Our hit man had a tender side i.e. Julie Garwoods Romance Sizzle. This is a cross between a mystery and romance or Angie Jolie's Salt character.
Ms Eby has gotten so much richer in her male voices and she does not disappoint in this 2 book series. Catch her as A.K.A. Tatiana Sokolov
yes, I did listen in one sitting as the pace was so fast. This was pure entertainment and a quick course on always planning ahead. Had some good ideas
This is not worth a full credit, but catch it on sale and you will have a good fast listen. There is a book #2 so I don't know how much the author plans on taking this character. Let's hope #2 is as entertaining as this was. Hint: if you saw "Salt", then you are prepared for this listen.
I purchased this on sale at a bargain so 37 hrs is a lot of how to get things done if you were a spy or want to do covert missions. I finished 8 hrs of Flee and started on book #2 as I write this review. I am not sure I can listen to all 37 hrs straight through if like #1. Each book gets longer and #3 is 17 hrs! Flee had lots of action and the gore was kept to a minimum, which I am grateful. Flee was worth the 8 hrs of listening time. See other reviewers comments which were spot on as to the content.
I wanted to try the Jack Daniels series for the humor, but reviewers said too graphic.
I love Angela Dawe's male reading voice so this was part of a buying spree of this reader I went on when I finished Tiffany Snow series by this reader. Beware: you have to get use to her female style, then you get hooked like I did as her male voices are yummy. Reader does a great job of bring the characters to life for the 37 hrs invested.
this is 3 books in 1, so authors can do other stories to add to series. I would love to see more humor as was done the "Jack Daniels' series. It sounded like fun, but the gore put me off and I would not purchase that series. This team has lots of potential so put some humor in the Chandler character. Hint: authors had time for the cat and "Victor".
This subject was too dark for me. Too much like Karin Slaughter and/or Dennis Leane. I have many of this author reads done by Jonathan Davis, who is my new fave male reader, that are much lighter. The graphic descriptions were too much for me. Torture of women is more than I want in a story.
I have purchased this author due to the readers so check out each story reviewers if this author is a first for you. I WOULD NOT buy this first as author has done better in his other works. The story is good, and the flow is like this authors' other style, but author just did not pull this work off as well as his others. A bit choppy is a description I would use. Maybe a bit better editing or re write.
T.E. AKA Tatiana Sokolov has deeper males voices so if you like her, her recent reads have improved so much. She did an excellent job on female and good on male. She brought out the anguish each of the characters were going through.
Not this one...not every book can be great. The highs were good but, then story would kind of fade a bit so, I just could not really put my finger on why this missed the mark. After Dark blew me away so maybe my expectations were too high or I may have listened to the authors' work too close to one another.
Do not start with this book unless you have time to really pay attention. Another reviewer stated he missed the clues. This book had many twists so you really had to concentrate or as some other reviewers said they could not follow. This was a good listen that left me saying "wow".
all of this author books are good. they have a twist in each one so if you are trying to do 2 things that require concentration, then you may miss the clues which pull the book together for you. I have listened to book #1 and #3, the characters are the same, but the books stand alone as the author paints a clear picture. Dana is the character that pulls all the books together, so pay attention when she is featured.
J.D. is the best for Mysteries and Romance reads. He also does so much sci fi, but thats not for me. Check out his reads for Sandra Brown Mean Streak and Charles Brokaw's Professor adventures for a fun listen. Hard core mystery fans may not like these, but they were a fun and entertaining listen. How much real life do you want in every listen?
The last 3 chapters blew me away! Author likes to have another kicker when he finishes so it leaves you wanting more of his work.
If you like a series, then start with #1 as the author builds the characters background in that book. #2 is not the best to start if you have to know about how the characters originally came together. I listened to #3,#1,#2 as I like J.D. more mature voice. If I had to do it again, I would have listened in order.
This is a fast paced mystery with understated humor. It made time fly listening for clues which equals entertainment in audio. If you are a heavy mystery fan, than this maybe too predictable for you. See Amazon reviews
yes, this had all the elements from Indiana Jones and the DaVinci Code but, I was not looking to discover a new best seller author, just good entertainment that was not dark with terror. J.D. reads Dennis Lehane's books which are great but very dark. Unfortunately too dark for me. This author is great as he leaves you wanting to go buy the other reads to continue the professors adventures in audio read by J.Davis.
I love J.D. from his Sandra Brown's Mean Streak read. I have hunted out many authors trying to capture J.D. wonderful performance and talented reads. He has saved this series of #2,3,4 which I intend to buy all. I will skip #1 as that reader got awful reviews. J.D. made our hero funny, brilliant and yes sometimes bumbling. JD gives our professor the sexiness the author intended.
yes, when I realized that great intentions can lead to things lost.
note: I am a core romance/mystery listener so beware deep heavy mystery fans.
