Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties", bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach....

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters were great as were most of the story lines.

    I couldn't understand how Alex, of all people, didn't think that his house was bugged when all of the private information was coming out.

    Great story, really kept us thinking all of the way through. The characters were excellent. The narration was terrific. I love it when the characters are well defined by their voices and you can tell the men from the women.

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    Kept me riveted and disbelieving the entire book. Thank you JD and Susan for the book, the narration and the inclusiveness (I'm Jewish and not usually included in the novels that I read).

Now on the verge of a successful career, and having fallen in love with the man of her dreams, Emma is looking to the future. Yet it’s the past that is about to catch up with her.

    Roberts builds such great characters and in this book hearing the stories of each one and seeing how they tied together was terrific.

    Raudman's narration was wonderful to listen to. All of the voices were so distinct.

    Everyone thinks Emmy Dockery is crazy. Obsessed with finding the link between hundreds of unsolved cases, Emmy has taken leave from her job as an FBI researcher. Now all she has are the newspaper clippings that wallpaper her bedroom, and her recurring nightmares of an all-consuming fire. Not even Emmy's ex-boyfriend, field agent Harrison "Books" Bookman, will believe her that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes, and murders are all connected.

    When novice P.I. Geri Sullivan first heard her adopted Chihuahua talk, she thought she'd gone barking mad. But it turns out Pepe is a savvy sleuth - and if he has his way, he'll soon be a bone-a-fido celebrity, too, as Pepe and Geri are Hollywood-bound to star in the reality show Dancing with Dogs. So far, so bueno. Then Nigel St. Nigel, the judge everyone loves to hate, becomes the judge someone wanted dead. Pepe and Geri are hot on a killer's heels but between perfecting the paso doble and protecting Pepe's Pomeranian lady love, both have their paws full.

    Whenever we need a break from the serious thrillers on our audible list here comes Pepe to save the day.

    You have to be a dog lover to appreciate the fine points of Waverly Curtis' books and Laura Darrell is the perfect narrator.I love her interpretation of the canine personalities.

    The books are wonderful and Pepe saves my sanity when I've been too wrapped up in blood and gore!

    I purchased this book despite the reviews because opinions are subjective. I found nothing wrong with the narration and neither did my sister. The male narrator was the same in both books and Kate Rudd wasn't bad at all.

    It was great listening to old friends and hearing Jenna's story. I can't wait for the next one.

    Thank you to Sandra Brown and Joyce Bean for this wonderful book.

    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.
