    Story

    Medicine Creek, Kansas, has been slowly dying for the last century. In a town where nothing changes, the community is terrified after a series of grisly murders takes place. Even more alarming, the bodies are displayed in bizarre tableaus. With the entire town in shock, FBI Agent Pendergast arrives from New Orleans to investigate. From the fields to the local caves, Pendergast discovers the remnants of a Prohibition-era moonshine operation and the truth behind one of the town's greatest mysteries.

    Venice says: "So Exciting! Like watching a film!"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    Pendergast is one of the coolest characters I've run across. He would make a great old world vampire- the ones with class and manners but are spooky as you know what...and he's the good guy! I was drawn into the story from the very start. Nothing was given away or ultra predictable. Great detail and character building. I immediately bought "Cabinet of Curiousities" because I had to hear more from these authors. That book was good, but not as good as this one.

    When Dave Robicheaux, learns that an old friend, Father Jimmie Dolan has been the victim of a particularly brutal assault, he returns to New Orleans to investigate, if only unofficially.

    Joseph says: "Another winner."
    "Listened 10 minutes"
    Overall

    Can't even talk about books content. Listened 10 min. and could not continue. Narrator sound like he had a pound of snot in his sinus. Mumbled words, terrible articulation. He sounds on his death bed or drunk. And the greatest sin in audio books..."he said","she said","I said" in every sentence. Only 2nd book in over 100 purchased that I couldn't listen to. He read for Jolie Blon and I liked it, so I don't know why this was as it was.

    Story
    (42)

    In 1974, a revolutionary group calling itself the Dread Scott Brigade held up the old Shawmut Bank in Boston's Audubon Circle. Money was stolen. And a woman named Emily Gordon, a visitor in town cashing traveler's checks, was shot and killed. No one saw who shot her. Despite security camera photos and a letter from the group claiming responsibility, the perpetrators have remained at large for nearly three decades. Now it's up to Spenser to solve her murder.

    Ruth says: "...he's Baa-a-ack!"
    "Listen to Sample!!!"
    Overall

    Kim & Lawrenc are right. Just listen to the sample. What a great way to ruin an audio book..."I said","I said","I said". I'm goin' for the paperback.

    Story

    He wakes alone, nameless, in a strangely bucolic day-after-tomorrow world. His amnesia is near-total; he cannot remember his name and doesn't recognize anything around him, but he knows with absolute certainty that someone has tried to kill him – and will surely try again. As he tries to discover the identity of the person who wants him dead, he quickly begins to unravel sinister truths, which make it clear that the ramifications of his search are far greater than he could ever have imagined.

    Craig says: "Great story"
    "Great story"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It was a realitively easy listen. I gave only 3 stars because the author did not make enough commitment to characters and details. I was not drawn into their world enough to feel a personal stake in the characters. Good twist to human behavior and instinctual self-preservation.
