    In this exciting seventh entry in Thomas Perry's Jane Whitefield series, Jane spirits James Shelby, a man unjustly convicted of his wife's murder, out of the criminal court building in downtown Los Angeles-but the price of Shelby's freedom is high.

    Story

    I have been hooked on the Jane Whitefield book since I read Vanishing Act years ago so was excited to see another addition to the series. The one thing I did not like about Poison Flower was the torture scenes. Not that they did not fit in the story - just that I found them too disturbing to listen to. (If I had been reading rather than listening to the book I would have simply skipped over those parts.)

    "Can I interest you in saving America?” That’s the text message Peter Fallon receives from a Wall Street bigwig. It’s not a challenge he can turn down, especially since the country is in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The stock market is wobbling. The Chinese have stopped buying our T-Bills. If we don’t get control of our deficit, our economic future looks grim. But all may not be lost….

    On Jericho Phillips' floating brothel, sex slaves are forced to endure unspeakable acts. Now one such soul, 13-year-old Fig, is found with his throat cut, his tortured body tossed into the river. Commander William Monk of the River Police swears that Phillips will hang for this abomination. But the miscreant is as wily as he is monstrous, and his wealthy clients seem far beyond the reach of the law.

    When a maid in the upper class Ellison household is strangled, Inspector Pitt is called in to investigate. He finds a world ruled by strict manners and social customs, where the inhabitants of the Ellison's neighborhood appear to be more outraged by the thought of scandal than they are by murder. Inspector Pitt finds a most unlikely ally in Charlotte, the Ellison's spirited daughter. But as the murders continue, Charlotte and Pitt find themselves drawn together by more than the investigation.

    I discovered the William Monk series while searching for books narrated by Davina Porter. This is the first of the Anne Perry series I have read - I don't usually read novels set in this time period - but am enjoying the characters and stories. (Unfortunately, it appears that several in the series are not available on Audible and that later books have a different narrator. As a Davina Porter fan, it remains to be seen if I will like them as well with another narrator.)

    Winner of the Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize, Diana Gabaldon is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Outlander series. This fourth novel featuring popular character Lord John Grey is told both from Lord Grey’s perspective and from that of Jamie Fraser, the star of the Outlander series.

    This is by far the best of the Lord John Grey books. Or, perhaps, I enjoyed it more because so much of the story centered around Jamie Fraser. I only wish it had been narrated by Davina Porter. While the narrators do a fine job with the other characters, Jamie's voice is not quite right.

They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan.
