    A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she's built in New York - including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can't let him pay for the real killer's crimes.

    I usually stay away from the James Patterson "collaborations" but this one was actually pretty good. A lot of action, sometimes incredible, a lot of twists and turns, I think I missed some clues while listening AT WORK, but overall a good mystery and a good listen. I would and I already have recommended it to friends.

    From the vivid opening vista, high in craggy mountains, to the final haunting glimpse of a moonlit canyon, Nevada Barr's first mystery, Track of the Cat, instantly caught the attention of readers and reviewers. Its popularity gained it both an Agatha and an Anthony Award.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    This is a good crime solvers listen. Great characters, with witty repartee, sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and a crime to solve.
    I will definitely get the follow-ups, glad I found this as the first in a series deal.
    ALMOST fills the void left by the death of Robert B. Parker and the Spenser series..
    That's a big void to fill...
    Greatly enhanced by the narration of George Guidall.
    I would highly recommend this book, this series to fellow listeners and e-book readers.

    The feds want Miami bookmaker Harry Arno to squeal on his wiseguy boss. So they're putting word out on the street that Arno's skimming profits from "Jimmy Cap" Capotorto - which he is, but everybody does it. He was planning to retire to Italy someday anyway, so Harry figures now's a good time to get lost. U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens knows Harry's tricky - the bookie ditched him once in an airport while in the marshal's custody - but not careful.

    Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash is a rollicking Texas mystery debut jam-packed with humor - and a heaping helping of romance to boot! Down in Salt Lick, Texas, a lot of folks got sass, but beauty salon proprietor Debbie Sue Overstreet has a bit more than most.

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

    yes I would recommend this book to a friend because it's a decent, light mystery


    If you’ve listened to books by Dixie Cash before, how does this one compare?

    this is my first book by Dixie Cash


    What about Peggity Price’s performance did you like?

    Easy to tell the characters apart


    Could you see Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    i don't know


    Any additional comments?

    It's a bit of a bodice ripper to me, but several of my friends enjoy the romance mixed in with the mystery.

    On location in Boston, bad-boy actor Jumbo Nelson is accused of the rape and murder of a young woman. From the start the case seems fishy, so the Boston PD calls on Spenser to investigate. Things don't look so good for Jumbo, whose appetites for food, booze, and sex are as outsized as his name. He was the studio's biggest star, but he's become its biggest liability...

    A good, solid Spenser novel, even though Hawk is not in it. I'm just happy to continue listening to Spenser series since the passing of RBP. Can't help but wonder where he would have taken us with this new character...

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

  • Port Mortuary: A Scarpetta Novel

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    Overall

    I've been a big fan of Kay Scarpetta for a long time now, but after that nasty business with Pete Marino, I think Patricia Cornwell has taken a WRONG TURN with that story line. When her husband went missing, I kept following, I was glad to read that he came back from the dead, and Lucy is still one of the most coolest chicks out there! I guess I just can't get past the thing with Marino. It seemed SO out of character. And I think it ruined the series for me. I MIGHT listen to this again and get more out of the current story line, but I'm not sure about that.

    New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker.

    I was glad to listen to this, got it during the 1st of Series sale. I started reading this series with the one where Dave rescues Alafair. It was good to listen to this to get the background, when Dave was still with NOPD. It's a great story, as always the wonderful descriptive text and the truly great narration by Will Patton.
