    Jason Kolarich has spent the past year struggling to recover from the horrific deaths of his wife and baby daughter. On the night of their deaths, Kolarich was at the office, awaiting a call from a confidential informant named Ernesto Ramirez — a call that never came. Kolarich blames himself not only for the deaths of his wife and child, but for the informant’s murder as well. He can’t bring back his family, but he can find out who killed Ramirez and bring the killer to justice.

    I liked this book- it kept you guessing how the main character would get out of his mess by the end of the book. It was about corruption and trying to do the right thing. I enjoy this type of book but had never read this author before.

    This book is one my classic go-to books when I'm between books and need something light and easy to listen to. It's nothing amazing but very entertaining.
    You know those days when you just can't catch a break? Meet Agnes!
    This book had great characters and was laugh-out-loud funny!
    If you like comedy with a splash of mystery and romance, you won't regret this purchase.
    (There is a echo thinking thing they do in this book that is annoying at first but don't worry- you get used it it!)

    The death of Judd Foxman's father marks the first time that the entire Foxman family - including Judd's mother, brothers, and sister - have been together in years. Conspicuously absent: Judd's wife, Jen, whose 14-month affair with Judd's radio-shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public. Judd joins the rest of the Foxmans as they reluctantly submit to their patriarch's dying request: to spend the seven days following the funeral together.

    Jamie says: "Greatly entertaining, not for all audiences."

    The book itself wasn't anything fantastic, but it had some great scenes and really great one-liners! I hope the movie that comes out this year can bring some of those scenes to life!
    It's worth a listen if you need a laugh, just don't plan on taking too much away from this one.

    The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear… She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Fascinating look at a killer family!"

    This book kept you wondering what was going to happen!
    It was a lot more gruesome than the other books in the series (or at least I hated picturing people carrying around pieces of skin- yuck!) but a GREAT storyline!
    If you've enjoyed the other Detective DD Warren books- this one will not let you down!

    I stopped reading this series around Fourteen or Fifteen because the books were so similar and boring me to pieces- this book follows suit! How many times can we hear the exact same story (with different skips to catch, of course)?!?!
    Stephanie loves Morelli, can't resist Ranger, wants Morelli, wants Ranger.... UGH!
    I loved the first few, after that it's like deja vu every time!!!

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    This book is so well written and has many twists and turns in it. When you think you have it figured out it takes another direction.
    This was seriously some of the BEST narration I have ever heard in an audio book!! That alone was worth my credit!
    This book was the follow up book of A TIME TO KILL. It has the same lawyer, Jake Brigance, in it from the first book but it was a totally new story.

    This book was so great!
    I stumbled upon this series (started on book 5, and loved it so much I wanted to read the rest of the series) and I LOVE them ALL!
    I was surprised at how little our main character (D.D. Warren) was in this book but it was still a very good book! (Don't worry- she takes over the rest of the books and is amazing).

    Very good book- Very worth a credit!!!!

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    Molly says: "Keeps you guessing all the way through!"

    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    I ran out of credits and PAID for this book (that's how great the series is).

    These are such great detective books and I even really like the narrator.

    This book is soooo BORING!
    I read other reviews and loved the book's title so I had high hopes- but what a yawn-fest!!!
    If I had to hear, "You're so great Baby. No, you're more great Baby!!" (ok, not in those exact words) one more time I would have screamed. This story is written so amateurish and unrealistic I was so disappointed. I kept waiting for it to get better- ugh! Maybe it would have been a good book for someone in their late teens- not an adult! Seriously- save your credit!!!!

    Story

    This book, in my opinion, is missing the part that would make up the history of the characters. It went from the beginning (when she got the kids) to the end (when they were full grown). I felt it was missing something without everything in the middle- there was NOTHING about her sacrifices and her raising the children.
    I thought it would be a funny heartwarming story but it wasn't.
    I found it very hard to connect with any of the characters (or even care about them). They all seemed to whine about their lives and none of them could appreciate what they had.
    I would not recommend this book...
