    When pretty and popular teenagers Piper Hadley and Tash McBain disappear one Sunday morning, the investigation captivates a nation but the girls are never found. Three years later, during the worst blizzard in a century, a husband and wife are brutally killed in the farmhouse where Tash McBain once lived. A suspect is in custody, a troubled young man who can hear voices and claims that he saw a girl that night being chased by a snowman.

    Story

    One of my favorite series, especially with Sean Barrett as the reader. Joe O'Laughlin again finds himself involved in a gruesome crime investigation and sifts through and interprets possibly relevant information to come to a unexpected conclusion.

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Harry Bosch solves a cold case that he was involved with earlier in his career during the LA Rodney King riots. New reader for the series that disappeared completely into the story.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Hollywood's newest wunderkind is Peter Alan Nelson, the brilliant, erratic director known as the King of Adventure. His films make billions, but his manners make enemies. What the boy king wants, he gets, and what Nelson wants is for Elvis Cole to comb the country for the airhead wife and infant child the film-school flunkout dumped en route to becoming the third biggest filmmaker in America.

    Good story, that actually gets Elvis out of LA again. I am circling back and doing older Elvis Cole books and I had a hard time with the reader at the beginning, but after a short adjustment over the first few chapters, I got used to him and now doing other older Elvis books, Mel Foster has almost become the standard.

    Story

    A nice second book in the series, but unfortunately she chose to end it as a clear set-up to the third book. More interesting characters added to survivors of the Hunger Games group and a good storyline. Only complaint is the way the book ends, but it gets you to buy book three right away.

    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    Story

    Love Harlan Coben, starting long before he was was a best seller (check out the whole Myron Bolitar series). This book's story line doesn't hold together as well as normal, or generate strong interest in the characters (even with Scott Brick reading), but I am probably applying a very high stand because of my expectations from his other books.

    A teenage girl - Sienna, a troubled friend of his daughter - comes to Joe O'Loughlin's door one night. She is terrorized, incoherent-and covered in blood. The police find Sienna's father, a celebrated former cop, murdered in the home he shared with Sienna. Tests confirm that it's his blood on Sienna. She says she remembers nothing....

    Michael Robotham again brings together the cast of character developed over about 4 books in a continuation of Joe O'Loughlin's efforts to deal with his family, his Parkinson's and a crime investigation that he can't avoid. Excellent story and the writing in so good you want to listen to sections over again. Sean Barrett is the perfect reader for the characters.

    A reasonably long drama that blends Nelson DeMille's regular topics, post-Vietnam hangover and the Gold Coast of Long Island. Interesting and well-developed characters with a good pace and plot, with a satisfying end.

    World War II had been raging for nearly a year. Hitler was now planning an invasion of England to seal Europe's fate. Though the United States was still neutral, a few Americans decided they couldn't remain on the sidelines. They joined Britain's Royal Air Force - with the future of civilization hanging in the balance. The Few tells the dramatic story of these Americans who defied their own country's neutrality laws and risked their very citizenship to fight side-by-side with England's finest pilots.
