    When two lowlifes rob a gas station, murder the attendant, and then incinerate bystanders who are filling up their minivan, the Manceford County, North Carolina, police quickly arrest the killers at a nearby motel.

    Mary-Ann says: "Suspense!"
    "Deutermann has his claws in a new fan"
    Overall

    I listened to The Cat Dancers while driving through the Smokey Mountains going to and from Knoxville, TN from Charlotte, NC. This was the first P.T. Deutermann novel I've read and I enjoyed it tremendously. I've already purchased Spider Mountain -- the next book in the Cam Richter series.

    Dick Hill's narration is absolutely masterful -- glad to see continuity throughout the series.

    Hands down the best audiobook I've listened to this year (and it's my 21st of the year, but who's counting?). I found it to be compelling, entertaining, and inspirational (will probably listen to it at least 2 more times). If I thought I could talk my wife into moving the family to Vegas, I'd be searching Zappos' career page right now.

  • Live Wire: A Myron Bolitar Novel

    Story

    Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She’s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby’s paternity have driven away Lex.

    Donald says: "The narrator is important"
    "Dissappointed Coben/Bolitar fan"
    Overall

    I've enjoyed Coben's Myron Bolitar series over the years and was excited to see a new installment. I'd rate Live Wire as O.K. (3 out of 5). Not as good as previous works -- saw predictable ending coming about an hour into the book. I also don't think that Weber's voice is a good match for Myron. Myron's a big dude (6'4")...a jock. Weber tries hard, but his Myron is flinty.

    When FBI agent David Stafford finds himself on the Bureau's "out" list for publicly blowing the whistle on a corrupt colleague, he receives a low-profile assignment to investigate an Atlanta military base, where someone is suspected of auctioning off equipment without authorization.

    Alan says: "Entertaining story"
    "Deutermann is a 10"
    Overall

    After working my way through Deutermann's Cam Richter series, I was a little nervous to try out a new protagonist. I should have known better. Deutermann writes a great thriller -- whether or not Cam and his pooches are involved.

    Young Michael, an illegal immigrant escaping the troubles in Northern Ireland is strong and fearless and clever, just the fellow to be tapped by Darkey, a crime boss, to join a gang of Irish thugs struggling against the rising Dominican powers in Harlem and the Bronx. The time is pre-Giuliani New York, when crack rules the city, squatters live furtively in ruined buildings, and hundreds are murdered each month.

    Robert says: "What an amazing book"
    "True Grit"
    Overall

    I've been an Audible member for about a year now and have been through roughly 30 audiobooks. More than any other that I've purchased, I had a hard time getting through Dead I Well May Be. I have read that other reviewers were appalled by the extremely coarse language. I was prepared for that and not overly put off by the high number of four-letter words. However, I found the pacing incredibly slow at times. I felt somewhat rewarded for not giving up on the book by a solid conclusion. That said -- I'm not eager to listen to the two follow-ups in the series.

  • Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9

    Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

    Harris says: "Dashel Hammet Redux"
    "Great production quality"
    Overall

    I was very impressed with the production quality of this selection. Having read 6 or 7 of Connelly's Harry Bosch novels, I felt that Mr. Cariou's narration was in keeping with the character. Although not a fan of jazz music, I felt that the musical interludes were a nice touch and added to the overall quality of the production. Well done!

  • Whisperers: A Charlie Parker Mystery

    In his latest dark and chilling Charlie Parker thriller, New York Times best-selling author John Connolly takes us to the border between Maine and Canada. It is there, in the vast and porous Great North Woods, that a dangerous smuggling operation is taking place, run by a group of disenchanted former soldiers, newly returned from Iraq. Illicit goods - drugs, cash, weapons, even people - are changing hands.

    Karen says: "Awesome!"
    "A creepy good time"
    Overall

    I'm rapidly becoming a fan of John Connolly. This is the second of his novels that I've listened to (The Reapers). Like Charlie Parker and love Louis & Angel. My only (minor) complaint about Whisperers is that Mr. Graham's voice seems about 15-20 years too young for that of Charlie Parker. I felt that Jay O. Saunders (The Reapers) was a better fit.
