    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who doesn't like the current president of the United States.


    What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Perhaps not be so obviously partisan in his politics. He doesn't like the current American president and the president in this book is supposed to represent him. All I can say is that the book would have been much better if the author hadn't infused it with his political feelings and made the president look like such an improbable idiot. The stateside plot is just laughable; the one taking place overseas is not much better and the connection between the two is tenuous.

    I listened to several of Mr. Thor's other books and liked, even loved, some of them. However, this one is just plain horrible. I'm unable to finish listening to it.


    Have you listened to any of Armand Schultz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's always good.


    What character would you cut from The Apostle?

    All of them, and toss the book away.

    Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career. A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Way too much to talk about here, but let's just say there were too many subplots and they seemed quite contrived. Additionally, these experienced law men and women at times seemed like novices -- it was quite unbelievable.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No idea.


    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    Everything. She did a wonderful job of giving each of the characters a distinctive voice. I particularly liked her portrayal of the professor.


    Was 12th of Never worth the listening time?

    I'll just say it was entertaining.

    New York Times best-selling author Carol O’Connell has won a wide fan base with her popular novels starring NYPD detective Kathy Mallory. In The Chalk Girl, a little girl is abandoned in Central Park—with her uncle’s body in a tree not far away. Recognizing a kindred spirit in the girl, Mallory takes the case. But her investigation soon leads to a trail of murder and blackmail spanning 15 years.

    What did you love best about The Chalk Girl?

    The story itself is a masterpiece. Carol O'Connell is so very talented that it boggles my mind that she is not as well known as some other authors of the genre. The performance was pitch perfect as well. I love, love, love Mallory and all the "supporting" characters.


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

    Most definitely.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This is her best performance yet.
