    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.

    Story

    I have always enjoyed the Joe Pike/ Elvis Cole series. Joe Pike's mysterious background and personality have always kept my interest. This book gives a deep look into Joe's background. This book was more serious and lacked a lot of Elvis' usual humor, but it was appropriate to the book.

    Story

    How refreshing to listen to a historical romance without having to wade through passion scenes. Yes, perhaps it was a little predictable, but aren't all of the romances? Not wondering when I was going to have to sensor or fast forward was a blessing.

    The exhilerating tale of Takeo continues in book II of the internationally best-selling Tales of the Otori trilogy, a sweeping saga set in a mythical, medieval Japan.

    Story

    I loved the first story. And so I overlooked some of the wooden narration of the female narrator. But in this book, it is painful. In some places Aiko Nakasone's narration is so poor, it reminds me of a grade school student struggling to read in a classroom. This story in the sequence gets bogged down in political details, I see book three is the same narrator, I don't think I'll ever listen to it unless I can get it for free.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    Story

    After the mediocrity of the fourth book, I was hesitant to have too high hopes for this one, but Darynda Jones has matched the spirit of First Grave on the Right. The long range plot thickens and the gorgeous Reyes and Charlie are more firmly linked. If you loved the first 2 books, you'll love this one!

    Story

    I listened a few weeks ago and am still struck by how annoyed I was that the story could have been great, but instead, I felt cheated by multiple poorly written sex scenes. I enjoy a little passion, but after a while it just felt raunchy. And I really did want the story to be better, but now I won't follow up on the series.

    The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-after. Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well. So she decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened.... Until the real earl appears.

    Story

    The Countess has some likeable characters, and an enjoyable plot. However, this read is sadly lacking in historical context. The dialog was too modern to be believable. Situations were plausible, but not carried out well. However, it did make for a low key light listen.
