    There are those who walk among us who are no longer alive, but not yet crossed over. They seek retribution…vengeance…to warn. Among the living, few intuit their presence. Katie MacDonald is one who can. As she’s drawn deeper and deeper into a gruesome years-old murder, whispered warnings from a spectral friend become more and more insistent. But Katie must uncover the truth: could David Beckett really be guilty of his fiancée’s murder?

    Story

    I have not enjoyed an audiobook as much as I do this one in recent history. The story captures your attention and keeps you wanting to listen til the end. Although I had it figured out about halfway through I still found the story teller engaging. This is my first story from Heather Graham and look forward to more from this author.

    Almost the same story as Kat and Bones. The narrator is great at sounding like a spoiled, wining little brat. At times it was hard to continue to listen to the story.

    Gigi Bermingham is not as good as Marguerite Gavin. Her high pitch voice is hard to listen to. The story is alright but not as good as the previous books in the series.

    Nothing like beating a dead horse, I think I have listened to this story over and over. Secret government lab tests that have gone wrong, again and again. This one was a waste of money.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

    This is one of the worst stories I have ever listened to. It appears that no research had been done prior to the writing. It amazes me that this book was ever published, it is so far fetched that I am amazed any publisher would print it. This was a waste of money (credit)

A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey’s train wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be.

    Story

    Typical male invincibility. At least that is the way it comes across. Another one of those - main charater super heros who can't be hurt, killed. Not in the least believable or entertaining. Save your money. If I could give it negative stars I would have.

    Story

    I didn't like the story, some of the content is irresponsible and unnecessary. Wow, the lead is superman, can't be killed even when he is being fired at by 3 men with assault rifles. So farfetched it was not entertaining. The narrator is easy to listen to, but the story is junk.

Now an assistant D.A. in Manhattan, Alexa has made a name for herself as a top prosecutor while juggling her role as devoted single mom to a teenage daughter.

    DS is one of my favorite writers, but this one was not worth the $$ I spent. Some of the characters were not necessary for the story, it seemed like they didn't belong to the story. This may have been realeased in audio format in 2009, when was it written? Very dissappointed in this one.

    Stunning, stubborn, and independent, Philadelphia Fox lost her best friend because of the fabulously rich and powerful Lightfoot family of Washington state. Now she's got her friend's controlling shares in Lightfoot Industries - an inheritance that brings Nick, the family's prodigal and supremely attractive son, knocking at her door. An unexpected and irrepressible spark between them blazes into extraordinary passion, and Phila - historically unlucky in love - finds the deepest satisfaction she has ever known.

    Judy says: "Great Book!"
    "Like the book, Narrators Need help"
    Overall

    As all of Jayne Ann Krentz's books, this one is entertaining if a little predictable. However, the voices especially those for the older female characters are annoying. The male voice puts an exclamation on everything he says, which makes listening again annoying. I have listening to other books read by this male narrator and he reads all books the same. Needs to learn to put emphasis only when appropriate.
