    If Ridley Jones had slept 10 minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect, with only the tiny cracks of an angry junkie for a brother and a charming drunk with shady underworld connections for an uncle to mar the otherwise flawless whole.

    Linda Ann Howson says: "Give it a chance"
    "NOt bad for 1st yr.college"
    Overall

    Very poor. As others said full of cliches. The figures of speech were sophomoric, often puerile, even to include clumsy mixed metaphore. Please tell the author that there are no Bibles in Catholic confessionals. She very much needs an editor.

    Story

    In an African convent, four nuns and an unidentified fifth woman are brutally murdered, and the death of the unknown woman is covered up by the local police. A year later in Sweden, Inspector Kurt Wallander is baffled and appalled by two strange murders with an elusive connection to the fifth woman.

    Rebecca says: "A new Henning Mankell fan is born"
    "Psychobabble"
    Overall

    Poorly researched with respect to critical facts, ie use of ether as a method of putting someone out (I am of the few still alive that has used this extensivly) The sophomoric psychic descriptions are endless and boring.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "Waste of time"
    Overall

    Very poorly developed and mediocre technical writing. I really wasted my time on this one.

    Three years ago Lew Fonseca quit his job as a process server with the State Attorney's Office in Cook County, Illinois, and drove his rattling Toyota south to escape the memories of his beloved late wife. Headed for Key West, the Toyota broke down in a Dairy Queen parking lot in Sarasota, Florida. Buoyed by the friendship of a few trustworthy souls, Lew settled there, making ends meet by doing some investigative work for local attorneys.

    Donald says: "The melancholy server"
    "not very good"
    Overall

    predictable and repetative
