    A serial killer is on the loose, and it’s up to FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock to bring him down. They soon discover the killer has blood ties to an infamous and now long-dead monster. Savich and Sherlock are joined by agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight, and the chase is on. At the same time, Agent Lucy Carlyle learns from her dying father that her grandfather didn’t simply walk away from his family twenty-two years ago: he was, in fact, murdered by his wife, Lucy’s grandmother.

    Pretty much a waste of time, but maybe that's why we read books like this.

    "No!"
    Overall

    illogical and poorly executed fantasy. The author intentionally the reader. Don't waste your time and money on it.

    Typical Dan Brown book. However the story ends WAY before the book ends.
    The last two or (nearly) three hours are wasted time.

    As a prosecutor in Houston, Penn Cage sent killers to death row. But as mayor of his hometown - Natchez, Mississippi - Penn will face his most dangerous threat. Urged by old friends to try to restore this fading jewel of the Old South, Penn has ridden into office on a tide of support for change. But in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling, and now five steamboats float on the river beside the old slave market, like props from Gone With the Wind.

    Corinne says: "Not his best but Iles can't be bad"
    "way below average"
    Overall

    I don't know whether the book itself is boring or whether the narrator pushed it in that direction, but in either case, the story line seemed quite predictable, the ending totally manufactured and the characters ... well cardboard would be a compliment.
    But worst of all was the narration which was often unintelligible and at its best condescending to the South.
    Pas this one by.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Lulu says: "The Reason for the Existence of Audio Books"
    "Boring and ... boring"
    Overall

    I guess if you are into soft core pornography you might enjoy this book.
    Otherwise, it's just ... boring
    oh, the narrator is good, but the story is ... boring.

    In medieval England, four children have been murdered, and the townsfolk blame their Jewish neighbors. The doctor chosen to investigate is a woman, Adelia. As she examines the victims and retraces their last steps, she must conceal her true identity in order to avoid accusations of witchcraft. Along the way, she's assisted by Sir Rowley Picot, a man with a personal stake in the investigation. A former Crusader knight, Rowley may be a needed friend - or the fiend for whom they are searching.

    Irenehope says: "History-Mystery of the Year & its only March"
    "Stunning Debut"
    Overall

    This is an historical mystery with a real mystery with a rich fully developed setting, and featuring interesting believable characters. I won't say more because anything I stay might spoil the experience of reading, er, listening to this book.

    The narration, after a little acclimation period is really quite wonderful.

    If I could, I'd give it about eight stars

    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"
    "Difficult to"
    Overall

    What do you get when you have an honest, well plotted story filled with people you like (and people you hate), an excellent writer and a superior narrator? You get an extraordinary audible book.

    The production is crisp and Scott Brick is a pleasure to listen to. He does not intrude on the text of the book.

    I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

    Overall

    Mr Dee, a former NYC policeman, and I understand, a native of Yonkers, NY creates a close to perfect police procedural. His ability to evoke the feelings not only of his detectives, but also of the setting is extremely satisfying.

    Enjoy!
