    On a warm summer night in one of Boston’s working-class neighborhoods, an unthinkable crime has been committed: Four members of a family have been brutally murdered. The father—and possible suspect—now lies clinging to life in the ICU. Murder-suicide? Or something worse? Veteran police detective D. D. Warren is certain of only one thing: There’s more to this case than meets the eye.

    "loved this book"
    Overall

    You won't be disappointed - has a great plot and will keep you guessing. Loved the narrators as well. I didn't down load "The Neighbor" because of the reviews on this site but after listening to this book I will go back and purchase it because of the narrator Kristen Potter she is a great story tell I could listen to her for hours.

    What did you like best about Deserves to Die? What did you like least?

    THE NARRATOR MADE THIS BOOK SHE WAS GREAT, ON THE OTHER HAND THE STORY WAS VERY WEAK AND WENT NOWHERE, I KEEP WAITING FOR THE STORY TO PICKUP BUT IT NEVER HAPPENED. THE ENDING WAS THE MOST DISAPPOINTING OF ALL.


    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

    >When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom.

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

    Would you listen to The Gods of Guilt again? Why?

    Yes, this books is so good I loved every minute of it and would listen to again , Connelly is one of the best and never, never disappoints. I'm still and always will be a Harry Bosch fan one of the best reads yet but Mickey Haller is just as good and I hope has a very long life yet to come with Connelly.

    When the body of a young woman is discovered deep beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is no suicide. It's a brutal, cold-blooded murder. All too soon former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton - home for Thanksgiving after a long absence - finds herself unwittingly drawn into the case.

    A young woman is murdered in her Oslo flat. One finger has been severed from her left hand, and behind her eyelid is secreted a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star - a pentagram, the devil’s star. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case with his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on notice to quit the force and is left with little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor and get to work. A wave of similar murders is on the horizon....

    Story

    For years Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series has been my very favorite. After listening to my first Jo Nesbo book "The Snowman" I was hooked and downloaded everyone of his books the main character Harry Hole is now my second favorite series.

    I have to commit on the narrator Robin Sachs as the narrator can make or brake a great book he is one of the best you can always tell what character is talking with out doubt his narrating will keep you on the edge of you seat.

    If your looking for a new series then look no further.

    A twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

    I'm so tired of paying for audio books and the narrator is so bad with all the swallowing, lip smacking, & long pauses. If these things don't bother you as they do me then you'll like the story.
