    Edgar Award nominee Robert Crais’ L.A. Requiem is a gritty, harrowing look into the minds of a serial killer and the men determined to stop him. Elvis Cole and former cop Joe Pike have been partners in a detective agency for 12 years. After an ex-girlfriend of Pike’s disappears, the girl’s father asks them to help the police with the search. When the missing persons case turns into a hunt for a killer who has been stalking victims in Los Angeles, Cole and Pike find themselves battling both a hostile police department and a madman.

    When a woman is kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight, Jack Reacher's in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's kidnapped with her. Chained together and racing across America toward an unknown destination, they're at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because Reacher's female companion is worth more than he imagines. Now he has to save them both - from the inside out - or die trying....

    What disappointed you about Die Trying?

    This great book was destroyed by a terrible narrator


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me on my seat's edge when I read the book. When I listened to THIS book, I winced and sighed and rolled my eyes. AWFUL!!!!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No heart. No soul. No excitement. Dreadful lack of everything. AWFUL!!!!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Die Trying?

    I would throw this entire "reading" (I use that term with great misgivings.) OUT. Burn it.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be better to NOT have this audiobook in this series than to have this particular edition.
    Blech!!!!

    Overall

    I thought this was a well paced, wittily written mystery, as was the first book.
    For people who are looking for an episode of the the TV series in which the supposed author is a character, you have missed the point. This is a story with it's own characters. Yes, you can see similarities, but they aren't supposed to be the same!
    A fun read, a fun listen. If you like the show, you will find a few in jokes as well.
