    Fresh from her bruising battle with a psychopath in Florida, Scarpetta decides it's time for a change of pace. Moving to Charleston, South Carolina, she opens a unique private forensic pathology practice, one in which she and her colleagues, including Pete Marino and her niece, Lucy, offer expert crime-scene investigation and autopsy services to communities lacking local access to competent death investigation and modern technology.

    Bernie says: "Time to end the series"
    "Mispronounciation"
    Overall

    I really like Kay Scarpetta and Patricia Cornwell has written another generally good tale, disappointed as I am in Marino's misadventures. But, needing to be said is the fact that Narrator Reading has managed to mispronounce nearly every word of science or medicine that she comes across. Everything is phonetic for her. Could she not have talked to someone, anyone in medicine or science to learn how words of art should be pronounced? It happens again, and again and again. She slaughters the language but overall manages a decent tale.

    Stewart Dubinsky knew his father had served in World War II. And he'd been told how David Dubin (as his father had Americanized the name that Stewart later reclaimed) had rescued Stewart's mother from the horror of the Balingen concentration camp. But when he discovers, after his father's death, a packet of wartime letters to a former fiancee, and learns of his father's court-martial and imprisonment, he is plunged into the mystery of his family's secret history.

    Janet C. Walker says: "Excellent"
    "Bravo"
    Overall

    I am a Turow fan and was surprised and ultimately extremely pleased with his marked departure from his more common story line. Plot, theme and character development in Ordinary Heroes kept me in my car in parking lots and in my garage long after I had arrived at my destination. The postscript - interview with the author - brought the book to an exceptionally nice conclusion. Thank you Scott Turow and Audible.

    The stranger arrived on a cool October evening. Jessie and Carl invited the stranded young man into their cabin, fed him supper, and let him spend the night. The next morning he repays their kindness by taking them prisoner in their own home.

    Jennifer Young says: "A Brief Lunacy"
    "A Weekend with Jessie and Carl"
    Overall

    A Brief Lunacy starts slow and finishes at a snail's pace. Ms. Edris's reading is at times even difficult to listen to. I found myself caught in an ongoing debate. Was it lame writing or limp reading that made this book so difficult? The writing is rather simplistic, at times even dull though the story line evolves into an interesting tale. It finishes weakly, leaving Sylvie somewhere out there, still struggling. Ms. Edris struggles to try to
    express affect as she reads and never seems to get with it. Carl becomes the most interesting character in contrast to Jessie who never really seemed real. I cannot, overall, recommend this book to anyone.

    With over 10 million copies sold, best-selling author Robert James Waller returns with the haunting, evocative story of a small town, a beautiful and mysterious woman, and the man forever changed by both.

    Frederick says: "The best 500 mile, road trip book, this summer."

    Overall

    Delightful Waller and follow up to some of the characters derived from/related to The Bridges of Madison County. Great Midwestern tale revolving around too common politics of our time.
