    Eve Duncan’s mission in life is to bring closure to the families who have experienced the agony of a missing child. As a forensic sculptor, she is able to piece together bones, create a face, and match a name to a child who would have otherwise gone unidentified. Eve is brilliant, driven, and tormented - because her own daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her years ago. Now, with the help of CIA agent Catherine Ling, a startling piece of evidence is uncovered in the quest to find Bonnie, leading to a connection that had been all but buried....

    What did you like best about Eve? What did you like least?

    It took so darn long to reach a simple conclusion - so much repeating of lines, and story parts...


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance?

    I have discontinued listening to ANY book of which she reads... she ends every word with an extra long sssssssssssssssssss.. Yessssssssssssssss.... bout drives me nutz. Just tell the story - without so much drama. We are listeners that want to hear the story and reach our own conclusions, without the reader making the characters worse then they are. Sorry Jennifer - just not a fan.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't be finishing the rest - Bonnie or Joe... I'll read the reviews and learn the endings!

    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

    I am always waiting for the next book to come out - which never seems quick enough... but I also hate a rushed story - that doesn't make me feel satisfied at the end.. This wasn't my most favorite Cross story, but it was right up there... The narrators were very good - the story was pretty good - the mystery kept me reading, and the ending will once again keep me waiting for the next!!! Don't make us wait too long!!

    After working one of the worst mass killings in U.S. history, Scarpetta returns home to Cambridge, Massachusetts. Exhausted and ill, she's recovering at home when she receives an unsettling call. The body of a young woman has been discovered on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's rugby field. The victim, a graduate student named Gail Shipman, is oddly draped in ivory linen and posed in a way that is too deliberate to be the killer's first strike.

    I just thought the book was more about the characters, then it was about the story itself... I would have liked more about the crime, and the investigation... Kay and her family are always so doom and gloom... rather depressing family to be part of... so I tend to like hearing about the crime more... but I do like her books... I keep buying them and reading them...

    The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times best-selling author. The superstore chain PyeMart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project, though, until someone decides to take matters into his own hands.

    Prey is my favorite series...


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is by far, the best male reader that I have listened to... and I listen to ALOT of audio books... He just makes me chuckle - the way he reads Lucas or Virgil... I can just picture these two guys - just by how he reads their lines... and of course John Sanford for creating the perfect lines for him to read!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I always laugh... he is such a down to earth writer - writes what people actually say...

    Deeper Than the Dead introduced Tami Hoag's millions of fans to Oak Knoll, a small California town that, in the mid-eighties, seemed as idyllic as any . . . until the See-No-Evil killer shattered that notion. It took FBI agent Vince Leone and a new technique called profiling" to put an end to the trauma. Now Hoag returns once more to Oak Knoll for the third installment of this best-selling series.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Down the Darkest Road to be better than the print version?

    I love the reader of this book - she has a catchy voice, and is easy to follow and understand - she brought the book to life for me, otherwise the print version - I probably wouldn't have read much more then the first few chapters...


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

    I didn't really get into the book until the later chapters...


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love her voice -

    A woman with a murky past who kills herself-or was it murder? A dying old man cared for by the son he pummeled mercilessly. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring racking up millions in stolen goods. A brutal and unscrupulous gangster. A wandering husband, rich and powerful. A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt thinking he can beat the system. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers that may be worse than the pain of his loss.

    I don't remember any of the alphabet stories that I was disappointed with so far!

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    I always enjoy a good Kay Scarpetta... however she sounds so depressed these days - nothing ever seems to be well for her!


    Which character – as performed by Kate Burton – was your favorite?

    She is enjoyable to listen to... tells the story the way it is, and she has built very good character distinction.

The next day, a NASCAR crew member comes to Temperance Brennan’s office at the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner to share a devastating story. Twelve years earlier, Wayne Gamble’s sister, Cindi, then a high school senior and aspiring racer, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse.

    I have read all previous Temperance Brennan books, and seems they are just not as exciting or intense as the first books. Before, I couldn't wait until a new release, but now, I put Reichs on the bottom of my wish list. Sorry - just need more to keep my attention.
