    It's the middle of the night. Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper is called to Harlem's Mount Neboh Baptist Church, a beautiful house of worship originally built as a synagogue. But the crowd gathered there isn't interested in architecture, or even prayer. They've come for the same reason Alex has: to find out why the body of a young woman has been decapitated, set on fire, and left burning on the church steps.

    If you want to listen to Barbara Rosenblat suck cough drops and swallow her saliva and gasp for breath during every pause; by all means feel free to waste a credit on this book.

    It was so annoying that I stopped listening after 10 minutes.

    While I love Linda Fairstein, and ordered her entire "Alex Cooper" series, the reader makes it impossible to listen to them.

    Sorry to have wasted my $$$ and credits.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    What would have made A Wanted Man better?

    Just a poor storyline all the way around.


    Any additional comments?

    Trying to convince a friend to play the "Jack Reacher Drinking Game". Listen to the unabridged version and every time the phrase "Reacher said nothing", is mentioned, you have to do a shot.
    Guaranteed to be drunk by the end of the second chapter.

    When a county employee is found shot to death in sun-drenched daylight while sitting in his county road grader, Undersheriff Bill Gastner is faced with puzzling questions. The simplest explanation - that an errant bullet from a careless target shooter's rifle blew out Larry Zipoli's brains - is soon discarded as inconsistencies surface. The fatal bullet shows no rifling marks, an investigation reveals that the shooter walked directly toward the road grader, in full view of the victim - who did nothing to defend himself.

    What made the experience of listening to One Perfect Shot the most enjoyable?

    I've enjoyed the whole Posadas County series and this particular book is a prequel to the series and helped fill in a few of the blanks.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It helped fill in the blanks about how Bill Gaster & Estele Rayes came together to solve crime in Posadas County.


    Which character – as performed by Rusty Nelson – was your favorite?

    All of them. As an audiobooks "reader", I've always enjoyed when one narrator performs the entire series of books. For example ... Judy Kaye as Sue Grafton's "Kinsey Milhone", Dick Hill as Lee Childs' "Jack Reacher" and Rusty Nelson as Steven F. Havill's "Bill Gaster".


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was a little too long to listen to in one sitting, however, I did listen to it in one day.

    It's August in New York, and the only thing that's hotter than the pavement is Manhattan D.A. Alex Cooper's professional and personal life. Just as she's claiming an especially gratifying victory in a rape case, she gets the call: the body of a young woman has been found in an abandoned building. The brutality of the murder is disturbing enough, but when a second body, beaten and disposed of in exactly same manner, is found off the Belt Parkway, the city's top brass want the killer found fast.

    In Hell Gate, Alex finds her attention torn between investigating a shipwreck that has contraband cargo-human cargo-and the political sex scandal of a promising New York congressman now fallen from grace. When Alex discovers that a woman from the wreck and the congressman's lover have the same rose tattoo-the brand of a "snakehead", a master of a human trafficking operation-it dawns on her that these cases aren't as unrelated as they seem and that the entire political landscape of New York City could hang in the balance of her investigation.

    Workers demolishing a 19th-century brownstone where Poe once lived discover a human skeleton standing - entombed - behind a brick wall. When assistant district attorney and sex crimes prosecutor Alexandra Cooper hears about the case, it strikes her as a classic scene from Poe's fiction except that forensic evidence shows this young woman died within the last 25 years.

    In the Metropolitan Museum of Art's exquisite Temple of Dendur, a controversial new exhibit is fiercely opposed by many among the upper echelon of museum donors. Alex Cooper steps into this highly charged ring of power players only to make a much more troubling discovery -- a young museum researcher has been murdered, her body shipped to the Met in an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus. Together with cops Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the realm of the city's cultural elite to find a killer intent on keeping some secrets buried for eternity.
