    Story
    (180)

    Linked by the Spirit River, the two towns couldn’t be more different: in affluent Barron, a powerful and secretive scientific research corporation enriches its residents, while downriver in blue-collar St. Croix, victims of that company’s carcinogenic waste struggle to survive. The bad blood between the communities escalates into open warfare when the beautiful Ashlynn, daughter of the corporation’s president, is found shot dead—and a St. Croix girl, Olivia Hawk, is accused of the crime.

    Story
    If you could sum up Spilled Blood in three words, what would they be?

    This is a terrific book with a story so complex yet easily followed leaving me guessing until the very end - and then to have more than one killer. Three words: complex, understandable, strong finish.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spilled Blood?

    The dad/attorney who was not so good

    Story

    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    James says: "Disappointed"
    "One of Hiaasen's worst"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Bad Monkey?

    The basic story was strong, but the writing of the story was weak. The gratuitous sex was not consistent with the story line. The last 50 pages drop in a headlong rush to finish the story.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    New York Best Selling book on 59 weeks...it has to be good


    Have you listened to any of Arte Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
