    We join Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. Call as they are just beginning to deal with the perplexing tensions of adult life -- Gus, and his great love, Clara Forsythe, Call and Maggie Tilton, the young whore who loves him -- when they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the great Comanche war chief; Kicking Wolf, the celebrated Comanche horse thief; and a deadly Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture.

    Story

    At the end of Part 1, Cal is cold, hungry and talking to someone, and then suddenly he's eating stew. This didn't make any sense to me. I got the book from the library and discovered that the audio book had skipped 20 pages -- it skipped from page 33 to 54. I did some more checking and found a different audio version published by Recorded Books. That version is 30.5 hours long -- 7 hours longer! The Simon and Schuster version is abridged and misrepresented as unabridged.

    I also thought the narrator was terrible. He tries to achieve dramatic affect by putting great emphasis on the last word of a sentence and dragging out its pronunciation. "The two rode close together as they had through their years as RAAANGERS." The narrator of the first book, Dead Man's Walk, was much better.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Story

    This writing reminded me so much of the Stephanie Plum series I thought it was Janet Evanovich writing under a pseudonym – only not funny. Or maybe she’s a Christopher Moore wannabe – but again, not funny. The author is trying way too hard and the humor just sounds fake and forced. Maybe she settles down a little in her subsequent books.

    Story

    This book should have been a novella. The writer kept saying the same things over and over to make it longer. She just covered the same ground in an endless circle. The characters were not well developed or consistent in their personality. They just kept endlessly vacillating. It was boring and I couldn't wait for it to be over.

    Elle Montgomery's life is going one way. And Cole Carson's is going the opposite. There's no reason their paths should ever intersect, even in a small town in central Washington. But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole. After an awkward run-in at the local swimming hole, Elle tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she's already lying beneath him in bed. She fails. Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charms.

    Story

    This book is written for very young adults - with the emphasis on adult. It's about immature teenagers, but the writing is too racy for the usual YA classification. I wouldn't have bought it if I had known it was a teenager book.
