    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    The story is very good. The reader was good but reminded me of the old 60's cop shows.I think very good overall but was my favorite kind of read.

    Was a nice listen just the right amount of Christmas and suspense. I happened to be listening to it a few days before Christmas but it would be a good read anytime of year.

    Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father fails ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters

    Story

    The story is like none other I have ever read or listened to, there was no feeling of been there,done that, with this book. The "fairytales" just sucked me in, I felt a part of them. The performance was exquist. Susan Erickson made each character their own and just did an amazing job. So very worth listening to.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Story

    Very well read, the narrator was very good. The story had potential but never really was told. It was like 60% sex, 30% dog training and 10% suspense. The profanity was way over used and made the male character an ass in my mind.

    When Earl Alden is found dead, dangling from a wind turbine, it's his wife, Missy, who is arrested. Unfortunately for Joe Pickett, Missy is his mother-in- law, a woman he dislikes heartily, and now he doesn't know what to do-especially when the early signs point to her being guilty as sin. But then things happen to make Joe wonder: Is Earl's death what it appears to be? Is Missy being set up? He has the county DA and sheriff on one side, his wife on the other, his estranged friend Nate on a lethal mission of his own, and some powerful interests breathing down his neck.

    Dennis says: "Excellent, edge of my seat the whole time"
    "Maybe the best yet!"
    Overall

    This book was the best. Full of things going on, new things happening to our favorite characters. Can't wait for the next one.

    Joe Pickett's in his last week as the temporary game warden in the town of Baggs, Wyoming, but there have been strange things going on in the mountains, and his conscience won't let him leave without checking them out: reports of camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. And then there's the runner who simply vanished one day. Joe doesn't mind admitting that the farther he rides, the more he wishes he could just turn around and go home.

    William says: "Exciting"
    "A disappointment"
    Overall

    I waited for this book only to find it disappointing compared to his others. Not bad if you haven't read the rest of the series but I was not happy. I will continue to Read C.J. Box's books, he is excellent, this one just didn't get the job done for me. David Chandler was great as always.

    New York Times best-selling author Linda Castillo delivers an electrifying thriller in which Chief of Police Kate Burkholder must confront a dark evil to solve the mysterious murders of an entire Amish family. The Plank family moved from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to join the small Amish community of Painters Mill less than a year ago and seemed the model of the Plain Life—until on a cold October night, the entire family of seven was found slaughtered on their farm.

    Overall

    Although pretty graphic it was not any worse than what is on TV these days. I couldn't rate it any higher because I felt left with a feeling of having been through a horrific event without knowing any of the people around me. The characters were never really developed, it was like an "event" with some names thrown in.

    In the summer of 1977, Terri Jentz and her Yale roommate, Shayna Weiss, make a cross-country bike trip. They pitch a tent in the desert of central Oregon. As they are sleeping, a man in a pickup truck deliberately runs over the tent. He then attacks them with an ax. The horrific crime is reported in newspapers across the country. No one is ever arrested. Both women survive, but Shayna suffers from amnesia, while Terri is left alone with memories of the attack. Their friendship is shattered.

    Carola says: "Good story, badly read"
    "Very good story, well read"
    Overall

    Well written and read. Even though I already knew the outcome I had to keep listening. Without giving the story away, I just can't believe the system is so bad, incredible. I love Oregon and plan on a camping trip in this same area this summer. I will definately be keeping my ear to the wall.

    Holly Garrett was in trouble. The stranger who'd saved her from a storm was not asking for her help. And he was inviting her to live with him. She could cook for him, and bathe him, but nothing had prepared he for the glances he threw her way.

    "Questionable classification"
    Overall

    I bought this book hoping for a nice Christmas story, even if it was to be one of those too sweet romances. I think maybe it should be placed under Erotica. The 28 year old virgin is made out to be totally stupid and the descriptive "deflowering" of her just doesn't get it for a "christmas" story. It just goes on and on about how innocent she is and descriptive sex. Throughly disappointed. Waste of money even if one wants to hear about the sex.
