    The police are convinced that Julia Ransom was guilty of the brutal murder of her husband, renowned psychic August Ransom. But after six months of investigation and media frenzy, she is free of their scrutiny, because of the lack of evidence. One afternoon she walks from her Pacific Heights home to Fisherman's Wharf, alone, unwatched - and, she realizes, happy. But not for long.

    No


    Has Double Take turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the writing was juvenile at best and the theme improbable in a genre where I expect some credibility. There was no style or flow to the story and I felt like the writer was back-filling things she forgot to lay out initially. I'm going back to the tried and true.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm not sure - the first book was great and I was so excited to hear the second but the reader of the second book absolutely ruined it for me. When I saw the reviews that the third had a reader who was even worse, I gave up the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wizard's First Rule?

    Little Rachel's escape


    Which character – as performed by Sam Tsoutsouvas – was your favorite?

    Sam did a great job with Zeb


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

    both


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the producers of the recorded versions realize how critical the reader is to the story. These are adult listeners. Sam Tsoutsouvas was amazing and set a precedent that none of the subsequent readers could even come close to.

  • The Shipkiller: A Novel

    Before he was anointed to carry on the legacy of Robert Ludlum's Janson Command series, and before he collaborated with Clive Cussler on the fan favorite Isaac Bell series, Justin Scott created this suspenseful adventure tale, a novel of love and revenge set on the high seas. Written in 1978, this is considered by many to be one of the best maritime thrillers of all time. As an expert in the world of ships and sailing, Justin Scott creates an authentic maritime world, making The Shipkiller all the more thrilling because it could be a true story.

    The story never let me down. I enjoyed every minute of it and am looking for more by this author of the same genre. I have only a minimal experience in sailing but enjoyed the details of the boat and the sea. Highly recommended!

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    Where does Odd Apocalypse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    While there was the typical Odd Thomas suspense and action, I felt this book just did not capture my interest. I had a harder time getting involved with characters other than Odd, and had I not read all the prior books, I would not have gotten as much of a feel for Odd either. Not "bad" but certainly not the best of the series.

    Roger Brown is a corporate headhunter, and he’s a master of his profession. But one career simply can’t support his luxurious lifestyle and his wife’s fledgling art gallery. At an art opening one night he meets Clas Greve, who is not only the perfect candidate for a major CEO job, but also, perhaps, the answer to his financial woes: Greve just so happens to mention that he owns a priceless Peter Paul Rubens painting that’s been lost since World War II - and Roger Brown just so happens to dabble in art theft.

    Where does Headhunters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I keep going back to Jo Nesbo and am not disappointed. The stories are complex, dark and with just the right amount of "detail". This is my favorite of his so far, partly because I get so frustrated with Harry's additictions and self destructive behavior and he's nowhere to be found in this book. I like the intrigue and suspense - you never know what's coming next.
