    Patricia Cornwell delivers a high-stakes Kay Scarpetta novel with an intrigue that will take Kay an ocean's length from home. The nightmare begins when a cargo ship arriving from Belgium at Richmond's Deep Water Terminal is discovered to be transporting a locked, sealed container holding the decomposed remains of a stowaway.

    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I was looking forward to this Audio book but was so disappointed. I usually like this author but this book was just boring.

    Story

    Critically acclaimed author Gish Jen is a National Book Critics Circle Award nominee and the person John Updike proclaimed as the young novelist most likely to become his successor. In The Love Wife, Jen poignantly explores the explosive dynamics of a mixed-race modern family.

    I gave this audio a four star as it was a very enjoyable listen. I thought that the characters were interesting and seem to be very real to me.

    Story

    Topanga Canyon is home to two couples on a collision course. Los Angeles liberals Delaney and Kyra Mossbacker lead an ordered, sushi-and-recycling existence in a newly gated hilltop community: He is a sensitive nature writer, she an obsessive realtor. Mexican illegals Candido and America Rincon desperately cling to their vision of the American Dream as they fight off starvation in a makeshift camp deep in the ravine.

    Julie says: "What a talented author & narrator!"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening to the author read his book. The story was very enlightening to me regarding the different issues each character had to face.
