    This title also appears as a novella in the collection “Lord John and the Hand of Devils.” New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon, beloved for her immensely popular Outlander series, crafted this fast-paced tale of intrigue when asked to contribute to an anthology honoring the late, great Ellis Peters. Outlander supporting player Lord John Grey investigates the death of a red-haired man only to become mixed up in the affairs of Sir Francis Dashwood and his notorious Hellfire Club. And as Lord John digs further, his life becomes threatened.

    An enjoyable historical adventure, and sometimes it's nice to "read" something you can finish in a day.

    The inspiration for the hit Fox series Bones, Kathy Reichs explores another high-stakes crime from today's headlines, in a case that lands forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan in the middle of a gruesome international scheme.

    Meridith says: "Unbearable Narrator"
    "Very disappointing"
    Overall

    I'm a fan of this series, but this installment was WAY below par. The mystery is disjointed and rather dull. Temperance Brennan has turned into an adolescent idiot. And the NARRATOR.... oh, dear. The narrator has a slow, nasal speech pattern and timid, girlish delivery style that's totally unsuited to the material. She also has so little variation in her voice that it's often hard to tell which character is speaking.

    From blood-splatter patterns and ground-penetrating radar to bone-sample analysis, Deadly Decisions triumphantly combines the authenticity of a world-class forensic professional with the narrative power of a brilliant new crime-writing star in this richly nuanced thriller.

    Rebecca says: "A bit hard to follow"
    "Good read"
    Overall

    Another good Reichs book, also good reading.

    Filled with disturbingly authentic crime scenes, Deja Dead is a stunningly original thriller. Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs blends mesmerizing true-to-life details with a haunting plot to create a novel so viscerally real it will take your breath away. It's June in Montreal, and Tempe Brennan, Quebec's director of forensic anthropology, is looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Her plans take an unexpected turn when a meticulously dismembered and stored body turns up in a downtown park.

    Lawrence says: "Suspenseful and Intriguing"
    "Good all round"
    Overall

    Good reading of another good Reichs novel.

    Understand and speak Hebrew starting with these eight quick and simple audio lessons. You're not just learning "phrases" with the Pimsleur Method, you're acquiring essential, conversational Hebrew.

    Pretty good basic audio-language course for getting some words and phrases.

    It seemed the perfect way to avoid three million in taxes on a five-million-pound estate: change the Trust arrangement. Everyone in the family agreed to support the heiress, Camilla Galloway, in her court petition, except dreary cousin Deirdre, who suddenly demanded a small fortune for her signature.

    Sybilla Goodall says: "If Jane Austen wrote Ally McBeal...."
    "Another Caudwell classic!"
    Overall

    This is the second of the four witty, elegant mystery novels that the late Sarah Caudwell wrote. The book is a great favorite of mine, and the reading in this audio version is delightful.

    Wondering how to make use of all that spare time on the plane while you're flying to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv? Between your in-flight meal and your in-flight movie, try some In-Flight Hebrew! This 60-minute program is the simplest way to learn just enough Hebrew to get through anything you'll run into, whether you're traveling for business or for pleasure.

    Timothy J. Raabe says: "Not Helpful for first time learners"
    "Not very useful"
    Overall

    I tried several quick Hebrew audio courses, just to get a few basic words and phrases, while working in Jerusalem for a few months last. I thought this was the weakest and most confusing of them, I don't recommend it.

    Julia Larwood's Aunt Regina needs help. She and two friends pooled their modest resources and invested in equities, a big, but successful, risk. But now the taxman is demanding his cut and Aunt Regina and her friends are faced with a problem, the money is already spent. The real question that concerns Julia, however, is how did such amateur investors make a thousand per cent profit in record time?

    R.L. Hill says: "Death Dance"
    "Good book, but abridged version NOT recommended"
    Overall

    It's a very enjoyable book, so it's worth hearing the whole thing, rather than an abridged version. Also, the reading in this version is a bit flat.

    The Charlemagne talisman, with its gold filigree volutes and enormous azure-blue sapphire, has caught Vicky Bliss' attention. When a man is found murdered with an enchanting copy of the antiquity in his pocket, along with an odd set of hieroglyphs, Vicky follows the trail of the gifted genius who created the fake to the narrow streets of the anitquity markets in Rome.

    Michelle says: "Much better than the first Vicky Bliss"
    "Old favorite, better in print"
    Overall

    This novel is an old favorite of mine, and I've listened to two different audio versions of it (including this one).... neither of which is nearly as good as just reading it yourself.

    Do you worry that maybe you haven't been doing the right things? This audiobook is for you, from Jane Bryant Quinn, the most trusted voice in personal finance today. Her classic best seller, Making the Most of Your Money, guided a generation toward smart and sensible financial choices. Here she offers money management the No Worry way, choosing from the best financial ideas and products available today to give you all you need to create a successful and long-lasting financial plan.

    Laura says: "Amazingly annoying book"
    "Amazingly annoying book"
    Overall

    I'm an organized person, and even I wanted to keel over with exhaustion listening to the author laboriously list the gazillion complicated tasks, which she describes as "simple, easy, and few," that she insists you must undertake as a basic, effortless financial lifestyle. The advice seems sound enough, but the exact same advice is found in many other volumes that do NOT misleadingly claim to offer advice that -simplifies- the financial life of a very busy person.
