    Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend, Hughie McDonough, dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City - and to get revenge on Michael Bennett. To escape the chaos, Bennett takes his 10 kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, on a much-needed vacation to his family's cabin near Newburgh, New York. But instead of the calm and happy town he remembers, they step into a nightmare.

    What did you love best about I, Michael Bennett?

    The writing and story was tight. Unlike some of his recent collaborations, it was seamless. This story was exciting, more exciting, and very exciting to the very end! I look forward to the next Michael Bennett story, #6!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Michael Bennett. He is vulnerable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No comment. Don't want to give the story away!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope James Patterson will be collaborating with Michael Ledwidge for the next book in this series. This story had great writing, fast action, lots of suspensel, and a terrific ending.

    Stein on Writing provides immediately useful advice for writers of fiction and nonfiction, whether newcomers or accomplished professionals. As Sol Stein, renowned editor, author, and instructor, explains, "This is not a book of theory. It is a book of usable solutions, how to fix writing that is flawed, how to improve writing that is good, how to create interesting writing in the first place."

    What made the experience of listening to Stein on Writing the most enjoyable?

    Sol Stein touches on all aspects of Fiction Writing and the examples given were interesting examples from other famous writers as well.


    What other book might you compare Stein on Writing to and why?

    James Scott Bell's Revision & Self-Editing and Plot and Structure.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I had to stop and write!


    Any additional comments?

    Hearing the lessons on my Kindle Fire was one of the most enjoyable experiences. I took Sol Stein with me while I relaxed in the patio, amid trees and birds from the greenbelt; and listened to his teaching as I chopped vegetables in the kitchen. Sol is so interesting I didn't want to put the book down!

    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....

    Rene says: "Too much dialog, too little story"

    Would you listen to Red Mist again? Why?

    No. Boring.


    Would you recommend Red Mist to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Drawn out inner thoughts. Not enough action.


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

    No one.


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

    I couldn't believe the change in her style. I was disappointed so I could've cried. I had been a big fan.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope she changes back to fast pace interesting action.
