  • With No One As Witness

    In With No One as Witness, her thirteenth novel, Elizabeth George has crafted an intricate and absorbing story sure to enthrall her readers. Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley, along with his longtime partner, the fiery Barbara Havers, and newly promoted Detective Sergeant Winston Nkata, is back, and on the hunt for a sinister killer.

    Kathleen says: "ABRIDGED, ABRIDGED, ABRIDGED"
    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    I LOVE Elizabeth George, and have read each and every Thomas Linley novel. She never disappoints: she is a very good writer with a flair for character and plotting rare to find in mysteries, without seeming mannered or gimmicky. The narration is first-rate.

  • The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII

    All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

    Chris says: "If you've come this far, you may as well finish"
    "Don't Even Bother"
    Overall

    I will never have these many hours of my life back. I felt compelled to finish the series I started reading WAAAY back when. If I'd known then what I know now; I kept trying to stop listening, then figured my investment was too high and I needed to see it through. But YOU don't have to. Stop at Wolves of the Calla, and know that everything "ends" just as it should.

  • Song of Susannah: The Dark Tower VI

    The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

    Daniel F. Webster says: "Undoing the writer's block!"
    "So-So Susannah"
    Overall

    King is starting to lose it here, after a very fetching and mostly satisfying Gunslinger series. Distinct feeling he was ready to get done with this part of his life. SofS is barely listenable, despite the mad skills of George Guidall. Still, it's better than the last book.

    Story

    Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers; and Oy.

    Amazon Customer says: "The Dark Tower Review - Part Five"
    "Best of the final trilogy"
    Overall

    If you must read the final two, go ahead, but this is the only really decently written of the three. Great story, great narration.

  • The Concrete Blonde: Harry Bosch Series, Book 3

    Story
    (2072)

    The Dollmaker was the name of the serial killer who had stalked Los Angeles ruthlessly, leaving grisly calling cards on the faces of his victims. Now, with a single faultless shot, Harry Bosch thinks he has ended the city's nightmare.

    Barry says: "Wow! Excellent Bosch thriller!"
    "Enh."
    Overall

    Must admit, this is not my favorite Harry Bosch novel. He's falling into stereotype way too much here. The narration is a little too "hardboiled" for my taste as well, and Hill fails when trying to do female characters -- they come across as icy or simpering. Still, the story does build nicely with plenty of red herrings!

  • A Most Wanted Man

    New spies with new loyalties, old spies with old ones; terror as the new mantra; decent people wanting to do good but caught in the moral maze; all the sound, rational reasons for doing the inhuman thing; the recognition that we cannot safely love or pity and remain good "patriots" -- this is the fabric of John le Carré's fiercely compelling and current novel A Most Wanted Man.

    S. Lev-Ami says: "Le Carre's Back!"
    "le Carre/Rees a Winning Pair"
    Overall

    I expected the excellence of prose that always comes with le Carre, but was delighted (tho not surprised) at the high degree of drama and humor and tragedy delivered by Roger Rees as narrator. Highly, highly recommended!
