    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    Bill says: "Good. Not Great. But Virgil is Hard to Skip."
    "Virgil finally misses the 'spot'!"

    What could John Sandford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Cut back on Sanford's meds and remind him what a GREAT character he invented to start a new series for us to enjoy.


    What three words best describe Eric Conger’s performance?

    Great as always.


    Was Mad River worth the listening time?

    Of course. How can you turn down Lucas Davenport (the Prey series) or Virgil Flowers' books!


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Devout Sanford reader. I have read all of his books a minimum of 3 times (usually more after all these years). I wait impatiently for his new releases. Unfortunately, I think Sanford is tiring out. Mad River felt as if it were a must 'write book', not one that Sanford really cared about. I know Lucas Davenport is getting long in the tooth, but Hey(!) don't give up on Virgil Flowers. He still has lots of spunk (lol), character and personality to last. To make this short: I waited a long time for the book and was sorely disappointed.

    This is a dangerous tale of times past... a love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice. Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee, forgetting it once had a truer lover. With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.

    Bethany says: "Breathtaking"
    "Lazy plot choice!"

    What disappointed you about Immanuel's Veins?

    I was just getting to know Decker's writing, and here he goes getting lazy and leaning soooo heavily on Dracula he should be ashamed. I would not have expected this from Ted Decker.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ted Dekker again?

    Yes...only because I already have.


    Which character – as performed by Chris Andrews – was your favorite?

    Tomar, only because you asked. Thank goodness for Chris Andrews or I would have never finished listening.


    What character would you cut from Immanuel's Veins?

    If I could be sure who it was, Immanuel.
