    Ensconced in a lovely tropical villa on idyllic Triggerfish Lane, Jim Davenport anticipates the good life to come. But this isn't living -- it's Florida, and the neighborhood is not quite what it seems. It's got overly aggressive Little League parents, drug-free Rastafarians, homicidal hookers, unnatural sex and casual violence. Oh, yes, and there's a psychopathic serial killer-cum-Sunshine-State folklorist named Serge A. Storms living directly across the street.

    Janels says: "Excellent Serge--captures Tampa perfectly!"
    "Average in everyway."

    Story

    I have listened to probably three Dorsey books, all Serge Storms novels. The others had a different narrator. The other narrator reads Serge as though he is jazzed on caffeine (or other chemicals) all of the time. This narrator is fine, but probably since I started out hearing Serge in the other voice, I like the other narrator better. This novel felt like it was a first novel published after his later work sold. Don't know if that's true. Felt like the first half of the novel was developing the characters, with Serge's sidekick Coleman more as the central character. Only after he sort of shifts focus more to Serge does the story take off. Not as good as the other Serge Storms stories, but still ok.

    This time, Sharpe's enemy is the ruthless, sadistic Colonel Leroux. Sharpe's mission is to safeguard El Mirador, the spy whose network of agents is vital to the British victory. Sharpe must enter a new world of political and military intrigue.

    We have listened to maybe 4 or 5 of this series. They are invariably good. This one is average among the Sharpes group, we thought.

    Young Nicholas Hook is dogged by a curse, haunted by what he has failed to do and banished for what he has done. A wanted man in England, he is driven to fight as a mercenary archer in France, where he finds two things he can love: his instincts as a fighting man, and a girl in trouble. Together they survive the notorious massacre at Soissons, an event that shocks all Christendom. With no options left, Hook heads home to England, where his capture means certain death.

    Andrew says: "Fantastic!"

    Story

    This book is not for wimps. It tells the story of a horrific battle, and while it is not gratuitously brutal, Cornwell does not candy-coat what life was like back then. We loved this book. My husband got his bow and arrows out when we finished reading it and started shooting again. Apparently, the story of archers inspired him? The characters are wonderful, and the story is well told.

    Serge is back with a bullet, torn between homicide and souvenirs. So is Coleman, torn between getting hammered and getting more hammered. Then there's good ol' Jim Davenport, the E-Team, the Diaz Brothers, and Johnny Vegas, the Accidental Virgin, cranking up the fevered action as the pot boils over on a street called Lobster Lane.

    Story

    Like Hiaasen, this author's formula is a bunch of people on a collision course. The people are all invariably some combination of -- insane, improperly medicated, self-medicated, greedy, stupid, and/or slime. We read knowing that the train wreck is coming. It's just when and how that keep us listening. I like Serge Storms. He is the funniest serial killer out there, usually. This one is good. Not as good as Nuclear Jellyfish, but very good. I like this narrator the best of the two that are available.

    Deep in the Rocky Mountains, a gruesome discovery - hundreds of mummified bodies - stirs international attention and fervent controversy. Despite doubts to the bodies' origins, the local Native American Heritage Commission lays claim to the prehistoric remains, along with the strange artifacts found in the same cavern: gold plates inscribed with an unfathomable script.

    Sandra says: "Sigma to the rescue - again!"
    "Rollins veterans can predict the ending"

    Story

    This book kept me listening to the end, even if it isn't as good as the other Sigma Force novels. The early American history woven into ancient history, along with some comic book science. I did know the outline of the ending about half way through the novel, however. His books are generally good. This one is a little below par, but still listenable.

    I liked this story and it kept me listening to the end. Like some of Rollins' other stories the believability quotient can get a little thin in spots. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the book.

    The Rand scientific expedition entered the lush wilderness of the Amazon and never returned. Years later, one of its members has stumbled out of the world's most inhospitable rainforest - a former Special Forces soldier, scarred, mutilated, terrified, and mere hours from death, who went in with one arm missing...and came out with both intact.

    Nathan says: "Torn"
    "Enjoyed."

    We have listened to two James Rollins books. This one was as good as the first. The reader was good.

    I have read several Charles de Lint and always enjoy his books. This book was good and was well read.
