    Drew Danner, a crime novelist with a house off L.A.'s storied Mulholland Drive, awakens in a hospital bed with a scar on his head and no memory of being found convulsing over his ex-fiancee's body the previous night. He was discovered holding a knife, her blood beneath his nails. He himself doesn't know whether he's guilty or innocent. To reconstruct the story, the writer must now become the protagonist, searching the corridors of his life and the city he loves.

    What made the experience of listening to The Crime Writer the most enjoyable?

    Great characters and I love how Gregg writes women. I didn't want this book to end and I couldn;t put it down. It's fast paced and packed with emotion and nail-biting action! This is one of my favorites of Gregg.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I stayed up way too late reading this book, I just couldn't put it down from start to finish.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    The main character of course but I love how Scott played the main characters love interest too. It's really hard to pick a favorite because all of the characters were awesome and so uniquely different.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I practically read this all in one sitting! Thanks you Gregg and Scott, you make my daily train commute painless.

    Life for private investigator Lizzy Gardner will never be the same. It's been three weeks since her fiancé Jared, was shot on what was supposed to be their wedding day. He's in a coma now, and Lizzy is being forced to make a decision she might not be able to live with. But a string of deaths has forced her to get back to work. While they appear to be unrelated accidents at first glance, a closer look shows they all have something in common.

    Story

    Good book, can't wait to for the next. I was surprised by the outcome of Jared and excited to see how this new chapter will unfold... Hopefully a darker chapter. The narrator Kate Rudd often annoys me. She just sounds like such a waif yet she is playing such strong women. And most of all I hate how she reads men. She makes all men sound like idiotic cavemen. The series would be close to perfect without Kate Rudd. Oh well, a girl can dream.

    Grave Sight draws listeners into the intriguing world of Harper Connelly, a woman with a unique gift: she can "see" the deceased and how they died. A teenage girl from a small Ozarks town is missing and feared dead. Hired by local police, Harper locates the girl's body in a nearby forest. But there's more than one corpse in those woods, and the second one raises questions no one wants to ask.

    The narrator sounds too old for this series. The main character is 23 years old yet the narrator sounds like she is 73. Series has potential but at least in this book there were way too many characters to keep track of in this story.

    Good series but it kind of dragged on and the end needed more sizzle. Five books later us readers deserved a better final fight with victor. I like the happily ever afters with all the characters. My only question is (spoiler)

    In Frankenstein: Lost Souls, Dean Koontz puts a singular twist on this classic tale of ambition and science gone wrong, to forge a new legend uniquely suited to our times. It is a story of revenge, redemption, and the thin line that separates human from inhuman.

    Great story but each book is about 8 hours and the series adds up in credits. I'm enjoying the story though so I guess u got me hooked. The other negative is its moving VERY slow. Besides that I love characters, especially Jacko.

    They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created, and they must be destroyed. But not even Victor Helios, once Frankenstein, can stop the engineered killers he's set loose on a reign of terror through modern-day New Orleans. Now the only hope rests in a one-time "monster" and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O'Connor and Michael Maddison.

    The first in a mesmerizing four-book original series, Prodigal Son is a brilliant re-imagining and updating of the classic Frankenstein story that only Dean Koontz could conceive. Two hundred years old, the "monster", Deucalion, is a monster no more. Literate and intelligent, he arrives in modern-day New Orleans, where he will join forces with a street-smart police detective and her partner on the trail of a macabre serial killer.

    This book was wonderful, I couldn't put it down. A cross between sci-fi and psychological crime thriller, this book kept me interested from beginning to end. Of course, Scott brick was icing on the cake. I wish he narrated the rest of the series but hopefully the next narrator is just as good.

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    Connie says: "One of the best Koontz Books!"
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    This book went beyond my expectations. It was fast paced and thought provoking all the while disturbing. I loved the balance between darkness and light. If you like psychological thrillers about serial killers, this book is for you.

When his former partner asks him to track down a missing girl, Parker finds himself drawn into a world beyond his imagining - one where 30 year old killings remain shrouded in fear and lies, a world where the ghosts of the dead torment the living....

    This is the first I have read from this author and I have mixed feelings. Part one and two could have been the first book as the other half seemed totally different. Some of the book was psychological thriller which was great and the author has a beautiful way with his words. On the other hand, other parts felt like a scene from good fellas and I didn't enjoy it. It was like two genres of books were made into one book. I don't know if I'll read the next. Fifteen hours is a big time investment and the ending left me feeling unsatisfied.

    Where does The Dead Room rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I gave read many serial killer stories and it starts getting repetitive but this book was refreshing. This one follows a young criminal lawyer instead of a police detective. It is by far one of the best mystery novels I've read. Also I have never listened to Jim McCance before but he was great, at times he sounded like Buffalo Bill from "Silence of the Lambs" and other times he sounded like my favorite narrator, Scott Brick. If you like Scott Brick you should like Jim McCance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed listening to the evolution of Teddy who was somewhat naive and desperate for a mentor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The underwater scene, I'll leave it at that. ;)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Once I got into it I couldn't put it down.

    Big Time!!!! It kept me guessing the whole time.

    She was fantastic!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
