    Writing in the tradition of Dennis Lehane and Greg Iles, Attica Locke, a powerful new voice in American fiction, delivers a brilliant debut thriller that readers will not soon forget. Jay Porter is hardly the lawyer he set out to be. His most promising client is a low-rent call girl and he runs his fledgling law practice out of a dingy strip mall. But he's long since made peace with not living the American Dream and carefully tucked away his darkest sins: the guns, the FBI file, the trial that nearly destroyed him.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, the minute it started
    and I recognized the narrators voice:
    I was truned off.
    He narrrated Waking with Enemies and it was soooooo disgusting
    -that was all I could think about.
    Anyone needing a job so badly,
    they would narrate Waking with Enemies leaves you thinking he would narrate any kind of bad book.
    Had to stop listening.
    My fault I should have looked at the narrator before purchase.
    A Lesson well learned,

    Long story short:
    A Police person was moving my car,
    and Waking with Enemies was playing,
    and I did not realize it until he got out and I got in.
    THEN, I knew why he could not look me in the face;
    he was so embarrassed and then I was.

  • Suspect

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Suspect to be better than the print version?

    Can not speak to this, usually only do audio.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is a tie between Scott and Maggie.The description on their mind set is so telling,Leaves you right there.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen of MacLeod,He made feel you were right there.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many moved, but I believe when Maggie and Scott realized there were pack.


    Any additional comments?

    Robert surpasses his previous writings, (which I have read all)mostly page turners,how he presents Scott and Maggie's mind sets, gives you a whole different side of him.
    This insight into how these K-9 persons meld with their dogs and is forever enlightening. Dog man.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    What would have made Fifty Shades of Grey better?

    Turned it into a mystery


    Has Fifty Shades of Grey turned you off from other books in this genre?

    You bet, removed and will not consider reading the other two.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    She did a fine job, it was just the story.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe I am a prude, but do not see how this could be the number one best seller.and I will be returning it tomorrow.
