    First-year detective Kathleen Doyle is a plucky Irish redhead of humble origins and modest means. Chief Inspector Michael Acton is her antithesis: a British lord turned cop. He's tall, handsome, and enigmatic - to a fault. He also has a knack for solving London's most high-profile crimes. Acton selects Doyle out of the newbie squad to partner with him on a series of investigations because she always knows when someone is lying - a trait that comes in handy when interviewing suspects and witnesses.

    What would have made Murder in Thrall better?

    A relationship developed between the two main characters. I never believed the love was real it was never developed and I didn't believe it. The development also of her ability to tell if someone was lying. It was just stated and nothing developed about it. It could have been an interesting supernatural twist but I'll never know because I won't listen to another. The murders were also not interesting and I didn't care what happened until then end when someone was trailing her and I thought finally some action!

    Homeland Security Secretary Catherine Blaine receives a frightening communication from a hacker identified only by the pseudonym Janus. The message is the latest in a series correctly predicting natural disasters around the world - disasters that, Janus claims, were manufactured, not natural at all. And, according to the email, unless the United States does as Janus instructs, another disaster is coming - a Category 5 hurricane that will hit the Eastern Seaboard and destroy the lives of tens of millions of people.

    Would you try another book from James Lilliefors and/or Rebecca Gibel?

    I don't think I would try another book because the characters were not developed or believable as leaders of the country. The science was way to heavy in the story.


    What was most disappointing about James Lilliefors’s story?

    Weather! It was described as a thriller and it was nothing but a weather report and a description of how weather developed during the entire book. It was more boring than a local weather report.


    What three words best describe Rebecca Gibel’s voice?

    adequate


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    waste of money


    Any additional comments?

    First audio book I will not finish - I am so cheap when I spend my money on a book I always see it to then end but I don't care about the characters or the weather, and I won't sit through any more science lectures on weather.
