    Mario Puzo spent the last three years of his life writing Omerta, the concluding installment in his saga about power and morality in America. In The Godfather, he introduced us to the Corleones. In The Last Don, he told the wicked tale of the Clericuzios. In Omerta, Puzo chronicles the affairs of the Apriles, a family on the brink of legitimacy in a world of criminals.

    Beneath Lausanne Cathedral, in Switzerland, there is a secret buried before time began.... Marc Rochat watches over the city at night from the belfry of the cathedral. He lives in a world of shadows and "beforetimes" and imaginary beings. Katherine Taylor, call girl and daydreamer, is about to discover that her real-life fairy tale is too good to be true. Jay Harper, private detective, wakes up in a crummy hotel room with no memory. Three lives, one purpose: save what's left of paradise before all hell breaks loose.

    It's required to truly understand the story!

    Can't choose.


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

    Could not!

    As a former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how deadly it can be. When he first met Eve Duncan, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose life would be defined by her dual desires to bring home her missing daughter and discover the truth behind her disappearance - no matter how devastating. With the help of CIA agent Catherine Ling, they make a shocking discovery that sheds new light on young Bonnie’s abduction and puts Quinn squarely in the crosshairs of danger.

    "Disjointed"
    Overall

    I though I had messed up the download when, in the second part, there began to be references to characters and situations never referred to previously. Perhaps I just jumped into a series in the middle, but if not, this was the most poorly edited book to which I have ever listened.

    And where were the "forensics"?

    The reader was superb. That was my first experience at listening to a woman read all the parts, including the male parts and do it so convincingly.

    When the book ended, all I could think was"What the devil was that?"
