    FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she's dreaded for years: the one that tells her the Poet has returned. Years ago she worked on the famous case, tracking down the serial killer who wove lines of poetry into his hideous crimes. Rachel has never forgotten Robert Backus, the killer who called himself the Poet, and apparently he has not forgotten her either.

    Overall

    This is the sequel to The Poet. While it wasn't as good as the previous novel (The Poet was hard to beat) it was a good read in it's own right. The action climax scene at the end of the book was fast-paced and hard to follow. Accurate rewinding is difficult with a Nomad MuVo as some of you may know. :)

    Anyway, Connelly pulled it off. The sequel to the Poet didn't disappoint. I highly recommend reading that novel first, by the way. Enjoyment of this book is highly dependent on the reader knowing the history of these characters. Sadly, although The Poet IS available in unabridged audio format, Audible doesn't catalog it. Hint, hint.

    Seventeen-year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban New Jersey family, captain of the lacrosse team, headed off to college next year with all the hopes and dreams her doting parents can pin on her. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months quickly pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst.

    Overall

    Sheesh. What's with all the rotten reviews? Sure the narration was, well, terrible. But that can be overlooked. With the Ipod or Iphone you can speed the audio up and horrible narration becomes bearable. Well, almost. (The narrator's interpretation of the wannabe rapper in the story would be irritating at any speed). Luckily, the strength of this story overcomes the bad narration. Great novel. Harlan Coben is back on his horse with this un. He's had his ups and downs with his stand-alone departures from the Bolitar series. Stephen King once said that a good story could be written on a grocery sack and it would still be a good story. I suppose you could apply that theory here. The terrible narration is like the grocery sack. A crude delivery device for a fantastic yarn. Enjoy!

  • Meltdown: A Look at Why the Economy Tanked and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

    The media tells us that "deregulation" and "unfettered free markets" have wrecked our economy and will continue to make things worse without a heavy dose of federal regulation. But the real blame lies elsewhere. In Meltdown, best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., unearths the real causes behind the collapse of housing values and the stock market---and it turns out the culprits reside more in Washington than on Wall Street.

    Daniel Squires says: "Read this book!"
    "What an eye opener!"
    Overall

    This book is an eye opener. A down-to-earth look at how this economic disaster happened. I have listened to this book twice. Highly recommended. Well worth a download credit. It will change the way you think. Watch your favorite financial network for a week, then listen to this book. Then watch your favorite financial network again. You will see right through these talking heads and laugh at the obvious propaganda they are trying to shovel. It is very rare that I listen to any audiobook twice. There's so many things that have to be "right" about it. The content, the narrator, my interest level and attention span, etc. This audiobook fits that narrow window. A real eye opener!

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    Smashing! This is the very best of the Camel Club series. A non-stop thrill ride. I got the feeling that this is the last book in the series. If so, what a way to end the saga. These characters were great.

    Carpenter, the Paterson, N.J., lawyer whose wealth allows him to work as seldom as he chooses, is recovering from the loss of the love of his life, Laurie Collins, who has moved home to Findlay, Wis., to become the acting chief of police. When Laurie calls Andy for help after arresting 21-year-old Jeremy Davidson for murders that she thinks he didn't commit, Andy can't resist heading off to Findlay with his faithful dog, Tara.

    A fine audiobook. Glad I downloaded it. I suppose I should have started with the first book of the series but I didn't have too much trouble figuring out the characters. I'm interested in the rest of the series now. Fantastic narration by Grover Gardener. He really nailed it.

    Oliver Stone and the Camel Club are back in their most dangerous adventure yet, a war on two fronts. Casino king Jerry Bagger from The Collectors is hunting Annabelle Conroy, who conned him out of millions. Stone and his colleagues Reuben, Milton, and Caleb marshal all their resources to protect Annabelle. Yet all their skills may not be enough when a deadly new opponent rips off the veneer of Stone's own mysterious past.

    Overall

    This turned out to be my least favorite of the Camel Club series. Don't get me wrong, it was okay but the two plot lines seemed sort of forced at the end. As if Baldacci felt like he'd painted himself into a corner and he needed to find a neat way out. Also, I didn't come away caring as much about the characters as I did in the previous two novels. It seemed like Baldacci phoned this one in. If there's another Camel Club novel up Baldacci's sleeve let's hope he gives it a better effort.

    The narration was top notch. McClarty did a fantastic job with the voice inflections of the characters.

    Overall I don't feel like I wasted my time listening to this novel but I do feel a little let down. Baldacci can do so much better.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Connelly delivers!"
    Overall

    Wow. That's the word that sums this audiobook up. Just wow. Fantastic narration. Why doesn't Grupper do more of these? Not just the narration however. This novel is Connelly's best since The Poet (which was previously his best). Absolutely recommended. I don't give five stars lightly. Mickey Haller is a flawed hero. What a wild ride. I didn't miss Harry Bosch for one single moment. In fact, this was a refreshing departure from the Bosch series.

    As much as I like Harry Bosch, it's just uncanny how Connelly's sidetrips FROM the Bosch series end up being my very favorites. So far those departures include Blood Work, The Poet, and now this one. I haven't yet read the other departure from the Bosch series (Void Moon) but certainly plan on it.

    Hopefully Connelly plans to return to this character. A case with Harry and Mickey crossing paths in the legal system seems to be the logical course of action.

    Don't miss this download.

    The U.S. Speaker of the House is assassinated in a terrifyingly precise execution in the heart of Washington, D.C. In a quieter corner of the nation's capital, the rare book room of the Library of Congress, a reclusive, wealthy scholar drops dead under mysterious circumstances that leave no clues. Following on the heels of the natural death of the Speaker of the House, the city and the nation begin to tremble.

    Marc Swanson says: "Difficult to listen to!!!"
    "Looking forward to another novel in this series!"
    Overall

    Unlike other reviewers, I was pretty much neutral on the multiple narrators. It just didn't make any difference to me. I guess the story was simply good enough to quash any negative reactions to it. Historically I've not been a fan of the industry's stabs at multiple narration.

    This novel was great. There's two distinct plot lines at work here. Fantastic pacing and plotting. I listened with rapt attention throughtout. The abrupt ending frustrated me at first but as I thought about it, there can only be one explanation. Baldacci's planning another novel in this series. There's just no other way to resolve the loose end. I'm certainly looking forward to it. I'd also like to see Hollywood pick this up. This series reads like it was intended for the silver screen.

    Highly recommended.

    Godless is the most explosive book yet from #1 New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter. In this completely original and thoroughly controversial work, Coulter writes, "Liberals love to boast that they are not 'religious', which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion.

    Kenneth says: "Somebodies ears are burning"

    This is Ann's best book yet. Highly recommended. Coulter once again uses the left's own words and deeds to illustrate their agenda. The narration is great. The reader handles Ann's sharp wit very well.

    At the end of a long day battling street traffic, bike messenger Jace Damon has one last drop to make. But en route to delivering a package for one of L.A.'s sleaziest defense attorneys, he's nearly run down by a car, chased through back alleys, and shot at. Only the instincts acquired while growing up on the streets of L.A. allow him to escape with his life, and with the package someone wants badly enough to kill for.

    Bethany says: "An entertaining read"
    "Hoag's breakout thriller"
    Overall

    Tense. Suspenseful. Brick's narration takes this fine thriller to another level. Highly recommended. New characters pop up throughout the novel, keeping the reader guessing. Future fans will regard this novel as Hoag's "breakout" thriller. The one that put her on the hit parade.

    Look for this one to go Hollywood.

    In his celebrated best seller Catch Me If You Can, Frank Abagnale recounted his youthful career as a master imposter and forger. In The Art of the Steal, Abagnale tells the remarkable story of how he parlayed his knowledge of cons and scams into a successful career as a consultant to businesses on preventing financial foul play - while revealing to listeners how they can identify and outsmart perpetrators of fraud.

    Overall

    Great audiobook. I broke from my usual mystery/suspense category to download this book and I'm super glad I did. This book gives insight into the way a criminal's mind works. Normal folks simply do not think this way. You will find yourself stunned at how you've NOT been paying attention to certain things. The chapter on embezzlement alone is worth the download credit. It will have you looking at your co-workers from a whole different angle.

    Great narration. The writing was a little flaky and could have used the services of an editor but hey, the author was a crook not a novelist. Highly recommended download.
