    A series of horrifying events occur in quick succession in the same upscale L.A. neighborhood. A backyard renovation unearths an infant's body, buried 60 years ago. And soon thereafter in a nearby park, another disturbingly bizarre discovery is made not far from the body of a young woman shot in the head. Helping LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis to link these eerie incidents is brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware. But even the good doctor's vast experience with matters both clinical and criminal might not be enough.

    Don't waste your credit! I have been a Jonathan Kellerman fan from the first Alex Delaware novel. Read or listened to them all. This book was so boring if I could get my credit back I would. The story is weak with absolutely NO excitement and very little of the humor that is normally interjected between the characters. I certainly hope Jonathan was just having a bad year and not starting to get stale in his writing.

    Virgil Flowers kicked around for a while before joining the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. First it was the army and the military police, then the police in St. Paul, and finally Lucas Davenport brought him into the BCA, promising him, "We'll only give you the hard stuff." He's been doing the hard stuff for three years now, but never anything like this.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A deaf person


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Sandford again?

    I love John Sandford. It was the narrator I couldn't handle. He is sooooo monotone I couldn't get through the book. I tried twice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A new narrator would make all the difference!

    Things are going pretty well for Nicholas Colt. He has a loving relationship with his wife, his blues band has a house gig at a club in Jacksonville, and his adopted daughter is finishing her senior year in high school. He has no intention of reactivating his PI licensee, and he certainly has no plans to travel to Tennessee to investigate a double homicide and an old girlfriend’s missing brother. Until she tells him something that makes his heart pause and his jaw drop.

    Would you try another book from Jude Hardin and/or Johnny Heller?

    Yes, I like series books and Dick Hill is the narrator on the latest one. He is also recording the next in the series. Dick will make all the difference in how I view this author. I just hope the publisher is smart enough to stick with him to narrate any future books. I don't like listening to a series when they change the narrators each book. But, I am bored so I will listen to them all.


    Would you recommend Crosscut to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only if they were really bored and needed something to listen too.


    What aspect of Johnny Heller’s performance would you have changed?

    He is a so so narrator. Not great but not bad.


    Could you see Crosscut being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe a made for tv movie


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book if you have exhausted all of the other wonderful authors out there. I was out of good books to listen to and looking for another series. It passed the time.

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    What would have made The Deep Blue Good-By better?

    A good narrator might have made this book bearable but considering the narration was just as bad if not worse than the story it made it impossible to listen to.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John D. MacDonald again?

    NO


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In every way possible.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Deep Blue Good-By?

    It would have all gone into the trash can.


    Any additional comments?

    All total I have over 635 books in my library and this one makes the top of the list for the worst book I have ever purchased! I was desperate for a new series so I thought I would give this author and narrator a try. I am not sure which was worse, the author or the narrator. Save your credit it wouldn't be worth you time if it were free.

    In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren. In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    I don't think Lisa Gardner could write a bad story if she tried. The worst part about her books is that have to come to an end. She is one of the very few authors I actually go back and re-listen to. Even with the change in narrators this book was very well read and consistent with her previous narrators! Fabulous as usual Lisa!!

    Investigator Wayne Weston is found dead of an apparent suicide in his home in an upscale Cleveland suburb, and his wife and six-year-old daughter are missing. Weston’s father insists that private investigators Lincoln Perry and Joe Pritchard take the case to exonerate his son and find his granddaughter and daughter-in-law. As they begin to work, they discover there is much more to the situation than has been described in the prevalent media reports.

    Would you try another book from Michael Koryta and/or Scott Brick?

    Yes to the author and NO to the narrator! A little bit of an amateur but the author has promise. The narration on the other hand is terrible. The book would have been much better with a different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Koryta? Why or why not?

    He definitely shows promise


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The only thing Scott Brick should narrate is eulogies. Enough said


    Do you think Tonight I Said Goodbye needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Sure, the characters are interesting and fun.


    Any additional comments?

    Get a different narrator
