    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    enthralling moody dark


    What other book might you compare Broken Harbor to and why?

    Iron Mountain by John Hart. I love both these writers. One really gets absorbed by the protagonist in that he has something dark in his past. You know it's going to come out in some awful way. There is always the feeling of something about to happen and trying to second guess the writer makes for a really fascinating read.


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    I loved it. I love a reader that is so adept that one knows who's talking by the slight changes in his voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The confession, It was so plausible.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Tana French

    Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

    What made the experience of listening to The Black Prism the most enjoyable?

    Once I sort of figured out the colors I really enjoyed the story about the people.


    What didn’t you like about Cristofer Jean’s performance?

    I didn't like it at all. He was way too stilted, I consider this to be one of the more poorly read books that I've listened to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the twist midway, Seeing as I don't want to write a spoiler I won't say what it was. But it was really a fun one.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd love to continue the series but I'll buy the book and read it myself. I almost stopped listening to the book but the story was so good I had to continue.

    I was delighted in finding this author and promptly bought all her books. I loved the atmosphere of her novels. Her characters are really well done and I feel that I'm missing friends when the books end.

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Story

    I love stories like this. great characters really fleshed out. The protagonist is always keeping you off guard and I'd really like to hear more about him. I wanted the big question answered though.
    I could not put this one down and it got me through a grueling half marathon and that is saying a lot!
