  • If I am Missing or Dead: A Sister's Story of Love, Murder, and Liberation

    In April 2002, Janine Latus' youngest sister, Amy, wrote a note and taped it to the inside of her desk drawer. "Today Ron Ball and I are romantically involved", it read, "but I fear I have placed myself at risk in a variety of ways. Based on his criminal past, writing this out just seems like the smart thing to do. If I am missing or dead this obviously has not protected me...."

    This book truly moved me and I plan on buying a copy to circulate between my sisters and my friends. There were so many relationship truths in this book, and I found myself saying over and over "I thought that just happened to me." And the story was told in a way that I didn't want to stop listening, I truly enjoyed every minute. If you're a woman, I highly recommend that you read this book and then urge 5 of your friends to read it. If you're a man, read this book to understand how women really feel.

    Andy Carpenter isn't sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend, Laurie Collins. He certainly isn't expecting to show up at a crime scene. But that's exactly where he arrives - at the house where Pete has just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Balfour. Upstairs are Danny's now orphaned four-year-old son and basset hound. And that, Andy discovers, is why he and Laurie were called to the scene - Pete wants them to take care of the boy and the dog so they won't get thrown into the "system". This is already asking a lot, but soon Pete needs another big favor from Andy. Pete himself has come under suspicion for Danny's murder, and he needs defense attorney Andy to represent him - and to find out what really happened in Danny's house that day!

    This is a great story with a number of inter-woven plots that fit together very well. As always, David includes a ton of humor in with the mystery and the overall effect is one enjoyable experience. And there were a number of surprises in this story that I would not have expected from Andy Carpenter, even after listening to the whole series.

    Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with it. But Summer Place has other plans....

    This was a really fun and modern take on the horror story genre. The characters were a tad bit confusing, but the story was great. I generally had shivers and could see this as a real story. The forward by the author made that feeling even stronger. I highly recommend this to any Stephen King horror fan as the story strongly reminded me of something he would right. The story moves quickly and has fantastic sub-plots. Enjoy!

    In this darkly riveting debut novel - a sophisticated psychological mystery that is also an heartbreakingly honest meditation on memory, identity, and aging - an elderly woman descending into dementia embarks on a desperate quest to find the best friend she believes has disappeared, and her search for the truth will go back decades and have shattering consequences.

    I debated whether to purchase this book, and decided I really wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get through half. It was just too difficult to follow through the memory loss and it was depressing to me as I get older to think about experiencing the same challenges.

    I love David Rosenfelt's writing and his fantastic sense of humor. I thought this was a really good book with a great performance. The premise is really amazing, and I appreciated that it had a basis in reality instead of being considered of supernatural organization. The pace is fast and appropriate and the story feels real with many possible details.

    Once again, another fun and lively Andy Carpenter novel with all our favorite characters. The thing in David's novels that always leaves me wanting more is all the humor they contain. I end up laughing out loud at many inappropriate moments. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes their suspense mixed with laughter. There's no better author in this genre and this is still my favorite series by far.

    Judge Daniel Brennan is only days away from achieving a seat on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals bench when he's brutally stabbed to death in his garage. An army of media and law enforcement descend on the case, and thousands of tips pour in from the public. When one tip leads New Jersey policeman Luke Somers to Steven Gallagher, things quickly go wrong, but Luke is instantly glorified for solving the case. But to one man, Luke is no hero. Chris Gallagher raised his brother, Steven, almost single-handedly, and, certain that Steven is innocent, he won't rest until he sets the record straight.

    Story

    I've always enjoyed David's books, but this one was outstanding. I thought the story was very tightly written and extremely suspenseful. Throughout the book, you could almost feel the clock ticking down while following the twisted path. The story line was very topical and complex without being too confusing. Even though "fracking" is the protester issue du jour, David put a great spin on it and used that to his advantage. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a suspenseful, fast-moving thriller.

    Linked by the Spirit River, the two towns couldn’t be more different: in affluent Barron, a powerful and secretive scientific research corporation enriches its residents, while downriver in blue-collar St. Croix, victims of that company’s carcinogenic waste struggle to survive. The bad blood between the communities escalates into open warfare when the beautiful Ashlynn, daughter of the corporation’s president, is found shot dead—and a St. Croix girl, Olivia Hawk, is accused of the crime.

    This was the best Brian Freeman novel I've listened to so far. I thought the storyline was well written and certainly wasn't predictable. The feeling of the rural area was communicated well, and the story all tied together in the end, even though I thought there would be loose ends. My only concern was that there is quite a bit of violence, but I don't know that's unusual in most thrillers these days.

    If you've gotten this far, then you know the basic premise of the book. I've told several friends to read it, because it's the best thought-out time travel book I've read. Every time I had a questions during the book, like "how would that work?" or "what if...?" it was answered in the book almost as soon as the question popped into my mind. I did think the book dragged just a little in the middle, but it picked back up again shortly. And I loved the ending. If time travel were really possible, then this would be how it could work and what the consequences would be. Definitely put this one on your "to read" list, you won't be disappointed. And don't be put off by the length, the only issue is that you won't get much sleep because you won't want to turn it off!

    Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm doing background research for the partners. It's not that he isn't smart. He is. It's just that hard work, the whole legal world, isn't really his thing. Underachiever? Yes. Content? At least until the firm puts him on a case that turns his whole world upside down.

    This book begins with an interesting ethical dilemma that is carried throughout the book. I loved the storyline and where Mr. Rosenfelt took it. There were enough twists and turns that it kept me guessing all the way through and I didn't predict the ending at all. My very minor complaint would be that the narrator tried a little too hard to differentiate all the character voices, and it wasn't always successful. This is a great summer read!

    This was another fun novel by David Rosenfelt. The humor he includes in his writing just puts a huge smile on my face with every chapter.
