    Story

    From his grandmother, Alex Cross has heard the story of his great uncle Abraham and his struggles for survival in the era of the Ku Klux Klan. Now, Alex passes the family tale along to his own children in a novel he's written - a novel called Trial.

    "Misleading"
    Overall

    Lawd, lawd, there is nothing more frustrating that listening to a non-southerner try to imitate a Mississippi accent. Worse, when they try to conjure up a Mississippi Negro accent. There is the barest connection to Alex Cross in this story, so I felt mislead that this was advertised as a Cross novel. Also, it is beginning to get on my nerves that Mr Patterson gets so much credit for books he does not solely author. How much of his books are his, and how much of the credit belongs to his co-authors? Is Mr. Patterson incapable of writing a book by himself?

    In this delightful tale by New York Times best-selling author Ann B. Ross, America's favorite senior citizen determines to reunite two troubled souls before it's too late. Miss Julia reckons Mr. J.D. Pickens is the key to solving all of Hazel Marie's problems, especially the female kind. But how can Miss Julia coax the savvy PI back to town - and back into the arms of her 40-something friend Hazel Marie?

    Mama C says: "Light Read"
    "Delightful Story"
    Overall

    After reading the review by Deborah, I almost didn't purchase this book. I'm glad I relented, because the story is delightful and I did not have the same issue with the narrator that Deborah had. I do agree that the voice of Little Lloyd is a bit juvenile, but not so much as to affect the overall quality of narration. I'm eagerly awaiting the next in the Miss Julia series.

  • Rumpole's Last Case

    Rumpole is on the job again, bringing along his taste for claret, his penchant for poetry, and his reputation for a good story. These seven irresistible stories run the gamut from simple thievery to murder and espionage.

    A User says: "Part of the Book is Missing"
    "Terrible narrator"
    Overall

    Perhaps is it my American Mississippi accent, but I cannot understand one word this narrator is saying. He words sound like they are being belched and his voice like he is in pain. I previously bought "Rumpole on Trial," narrated by Tony Britton, and thought I was purchasing a book of the same quality. No doubt the stories are delightful, but I'll never know if I cannot understand the narrator.

    Summer's Path is the remarkable story of Don Newport, an engineer that comes face to face with his personal destiny under extraordinary circumstances. After losing his job and his health insurance, Don learns he has a terminal disease with only a few months left to live. On his death bed, he meets Robert, a brazen angel of death that promises to help Don with a graceful exit.

    ArtC says: "A bad new-age after-school special"
    "Awful!"
    Overall

    With this book, you get what Audible is charging for it... nothing. The publisher's review should have been a clue, since they don't seem to know that people are "who" and animals are "that."

    The story plot, and I use that term loosely, is terrible. It is worse than terrible. A word has not yet been invented to describe this plot.

    Don't waste your time downloading it.
