    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    "What a Great Read!!!"
    Overall

    Funny, insightful, irreverent, articulate...all fit this outstanding effort by Anthony Bourdain. My first read of his material and I can't wait to download his earlier works while eagerly awaiting his next effort!

    If the workings of a professional kitchen intrigues you, you must read this book!!!

    For ex-FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, it's the beginning of his worst nightmare: a car abandoned on a desolate stretch of Oregon highway, engine running, purse on the driver's seat. And his estranged wife, Rainie Conner, gone, leaving no clue to her fate.

    My first read of Lisa Gartner and a very pleasent surprise! Equally important from an audiobook standpoint, the narrator does an excellent job bringing life to the characters while providing above average pace and cadence to her read. Add an outstanding storyline with enough twists and turns to keep you listening long after you reach your destination, and you have a winner!

    In Killing Rain, Rain has a new employer, the Mossad, which needs an operator who can remove 'problems' in Asia, and a new partner: Dox, the ex-marine sniper and party animal first introduced in Rain Storm. He also has a new hope, that by using his fearsome talents in the service of something good, he might atone for all the lives he has already taken.

    Amazon Customer says: "I give this book my highest rating."
    "Don - NH"
    Overall

    Excellent "read". Great character development and a fast paced book, with several twists, turns and surprises to keep the reader hooked. John Rain is a somewhat inagmatic hero, but it works!

    Definitely worth the listen. I hope his other book comes available soon, I will be one of the first to download!!!

    Chaz Perrone might be the only marine scientist in the world who doesn't know which way the Gulf Stream runs. He might also be the only one who went into biology just to make a killing, and now he's found a way, doctoring water samples so that a ruthless agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the endangered Everglades. When Chaz suspects that his wife, Joey, has figured out his scam, he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner into the night-dark Atlantic.

    Ann says: "Humor and Mystery"
    "As Much Fun As Skinny Dipping!"
    Overall

    This is an excellent read...funny and inventive with outstanding characters. Couple that with an outstanding narrator and you've got a really winner!!!

    Take an exit off the Jersey Turnpike to the irresistible world of Stephanie Plum, America's favorite bounty hunter, where she gets into more trouble than ever. This time, she faces a notorious gang in Trenton who wants her dead. Morelli warns that she's in too deep, and Stephanie more than agrees.

    John says: "A Fun Story with distinct characters"
    "An Outstanding Read!!!"
    Overall

    Funny, fast, great narration and an story line full of twists and turns. Add that to a host of very interesting characters, and you've got a great book!

    The only negative, and the positives dramatically outweigh it, is the ending is a bit abrupt. Other than that, buy and enjoy the ride!!!
