  • Port Mortuary: A Scarpetta Novel

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    Overall

    Kate Burton is an excellent reader and the story could have been great if Cornwell hadn't put Scarpetta on such a sad, depressed, paranoid trip.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "War is gruesome...."
    Overall

    War is gruesome.... and more than half of this book is just that. Edward Hermann did a terrific job narrating it. Not an easy read... would not recommend it to the faint of heart!

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "Don't Waste Your MONEY!!"
    Overall

    This book drags and drags and drags... very disappointing. I should have read the other reviews before buying it. Have read many of his other books and have found them to be quite good in most cases.... this one is a bore!

    The first in a new series of paranormal mysteries from fan-favorite Mary Stanton, Defending Angels introduces young lawyer Brianna Winston-Beaufort. After taking over her uncle's law practice in the much-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, Bree is itching for her first case. That is, until she gets an otherworldly phone call from Benjamin Skinner, a local businessman who's just been murdered.

    Lydell says: "Iliked it, and I am not a 12 year old girl!"
    "Rather Imature..."
    Overall

    this could be a thinly disguised Nancy Drew mystery.... am sure it would appeal to 12 year olds

  • True Detectives: A Novel

    Story
    (53)

    In Jonathan Kellerman's gripping novels, the city of Los Angeles is as much a living, breathing character as the heroes and villains who roam its labyrinthine streets. Sunny on the surface but shadowy beneath, this world of privilege and pleasure has a dark core and a dangerous edge. In True Detectives, Kellerman skillfully brings his renowned gifts for breathless suspense and sharp psychological insight to a tale that resonates on every level and satisfies at every turn.

    A User says: "Disappointing"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I have read or listened to all of Jonathan Kellerman's books and find this one to be much much below his level in writing. Please bring back Alex and Milo ....
