    On one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park - and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of The Lake in the park. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes - removed with such precision, as if done by the careful hand of a surgeon - that have Dallas most alarmed.

    I've purchased all but 3 of the "In Death" series, and this book has been the BEST... VERY riveting..Susan Olsen does a superb job narrating and KUDOS to J. D. Robb for keeping us in suspence after Peabody's "accident". I am eagerly awaiting my next download...

    Mudgirl is a child abandoned by her mother in the silty flats of the Black Snake River. Cast aside, Mudgirl survives by an accident of fate - or destiny. After her rescue, the well-meaning couple who adopt Mudgirl quarantine her poisonous history behind the barrier of their middle-class values, seemingly sealing it off forever. But the bulwark of the present proves surprisingly vulnerable to the agents of the past.

    A daughter holds clues to her father's shocking secrets and her mother would risk anything to protect those secrets. Grace Truscott, in the biography of her father - a great civil-rights advocate and Senator - raises questions about a death. Was her own father guilty of killing Ned Emory, the husband of his African-American secretary?

    The Grey sisters had only each other when their mother died years ago. Their father provided for them physically on Water's Edge, the ranch that had been in their family for three generations, each of them however, longed for their father's love.

    Overall

    I strongly agree with other reviewers that this book is poorly narrated. While Kristin Hannah is a SUPERB author, Sandra Burr totally took a wonderful story and BUTCHERED it !!! I have well over 100 downloads from Audible and for the most part have enjoyed all of them, but if given the chance again, I wouldn't pay $1.00 for it ! In the past Susan Ericksen has narrated some of Ms. Hannah's books and I so wish she had done this one!!! Some of the adult characters have "baby-like" voices, and it's hard to imagine an adult in them.. DO NOT BUY IT !!! This download comes in 2 parts, and half-way thru part 1, I abandoned it !!!

    Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law.

    trish says: "If you've read or listened to Big Jack don't buy!"
    "Spellbounding !"
    Overall

    Great book, Ms. Roberts keeps ya on the edge of your seat ! I REALLY like Susan Eriksen's voice..
