    A federal judge is murdered, found shot to death in his home - together with the body of his mistress. The crime grips San Francisco. To homicide inspector Devin Juhle, it first looks like a simple case of a wife's jealousy and rage. But Juhle's investigation reveals that the judge had powerful enemies...some of whom may have been willing to kill to prevent him from meddling in their affairs.

    I found this selection from one of my favorite authors to be a bit of a stretch. Still engaging but not at all up to the standard which I have come to look forward to in John Lescroart's excellent crime and legal thrillers. I also must admit I am partial to David Colacci's narrations.

    John Lago is a very bad guy. But he’s the very best at what he does. And what he does is infiltrate top-level companies and assassinate crooked executives while disguised as an intern. Interns are invisible. That’s the secret behind HR, Inc., the elite “placement agency” that doubles as a network of assassins for hire who take down high-profile targets that wouldn’t be able to remember an intern’s name if their lives depended on it.

    Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

    Story

    Mark Greaney has hit a home run. Court Gentry is about the most engaging and compelling character I have ever read and Greaney's vivid and non-verbose writing style is fantastic. I become very emotionally involved in these stories which is a tribute to the skill of the author and the great delivery of the narrator. Just great stuff, informative, well researched and definitely edge-of-seat fare.

    Story

    The Butcher's Boy series of Thomas Perry is my favorite of all time. I also have to say that Michael Kramer is my favorite narrator. In fact, he and Johnathan Davis are the only narrators I ever search for just to listen to their performances. I recommend the Butcher's Boy series is best enjoyed in order, but you can pick them up in any sequence and pick up seamlessly. I am now listening to this wonderful suspense thriller for the second time and enjoying it just as much as the first. Thank you Mr Perry and Mr Kramer. You make a great team.

    Story

    The two main characters are respectively sappy and stupid and must be so in order to carry this extremely weak storyline. By the time I reached the closing chapters, I was unable to even finish the book as my credulity was finally strained to the breaking point. The narrator was good. Too bad he really did not have enough substance to work with.

    The call comes at midnight. It looks like a tragic and petty murder - a rising star in San Francisco's legal firmament found shot in a dark alley. But for homicide lieutenant Abe Glitsky, the crime cuts horribly close to home - unknown to anyone, the victim was his daughter. Seething, Glitsky leans hard on his only suspect - a homeless heroin addict found lingering over his daughter's body, with her jewelry in his pocket and a smoking gun in his hand.

    Story

    John Lescroart is one of my favorite authors. His books are usually narrated by David Colacci who is excellent, in my opinion.. This title was narrated by Robert Laurence whose style, in my view, leaves a lot to be desired. He reads so fast it gives the impression he is simply rushing to finish the job. In addition, his delivery on text other than dialogue is flat and monotonic. His narration ruined the story for me, in fact I could not finish the book.... unheard of in my experience for a Lescroart novel. I wasted a credit on this book and will not be purchasing another title no matter how stellar the author, that is narrated by Laurence.
