    Ken Goddard’s First Evidence series centers on what may prove to be evidence of extraterrestrial contact. In this third book, crime scene investigator Colin Cellars wakes up in the maw of an fMRI machine at a remote military hospital, having no memory of who he is or how he got there - but he quickly becomes aware that he is being hunted. His instinctive response is to run, and he must rely on his new, incredibly enhanced sense of music and tone to trigger fragments of memories that may help him discover who is friend, who is foe - and who is something else entirely.

    Really enjoyed this one. Can't help but wonder how much follows Ken Goddard's logic. It was different to some degree from the first but as good and I think better than the second. I used to read Goddard years back and thought he had abandoned writing. So glad he didn't.

    I also got a laugh out of the quirky, sarcastic humor and the way Cellars always managed to get into trouble.

    Alo Nudger, the St. Louis ex-cop is both the most normal of all fictional private eyes and the most surprising. He's got an uncertain stomach he doses with nonstop antacids; he doesn't like guns or violence; and since he doesn't feel any special affinity for what he does, from nosing into people's dirty laundry to confronting perps with the consequences of their misdeeds, and makes more than his share of mistakes, it's only natural that his business cards identify him in typographical error as a private defective.

    Story

    When I got into this book all I could think of was how long before I gave up. Took about 30 or 45 minutes.

    But when I got to thinking about the story line I realized it wasn't so bad, not up to the usual Lutz book but not a total dog. As much as I hate to berate a narrator, I think that's what makes the book such a downer. Lutz must have liked Bob Walter so maybe I should deduct a point. I'm sure Mr. Walter does a fine job with other books but for me, a total zip!

    I saw some of the reviews, none good, but pig headed as I am still gave it a try since how bad could Lutz be?

    I'd say spend your credit elsewhere.

    I'm a Brad Thor fan but George Guidall just made the book better. The ending leaves me expecting part II. Harvath should know he'll never retire but now that there is a love interest I hope they go on as a team rather than leaving Harvath a loner. That would naturally push his intensity up notch after notch! And that could be more good reading.

    Good listen for me..

    Tami Hoag, author of Dust to Dust, returns with "a definite winner," says Booklist. In a trailer in a Florida swamp, time is running out for Erin Seabright. A pawn in a kidnapper's terrifying game for a ransom no one can pay, her last hope is a washed-up ex-cop who has already lost it all - not once, but twice.

    Story

    I wondered as I listened just how many people could relate to the horsey part. Maybe I underestimate the number and those who would pick up this particular book. I grew up riding so I followed that part easily. Had I not had that experience I would have moved on.

    But in the rest of the book the characters fell like flies. Most of us can claim a dysfunctional family but this family re-defines dysfunctional. Some of it was downright funny, most of it was getting to know the characters so we would understand when they were murdered.

    I'm really not sure I would recommend this but then again I've read much worse.

    Frank Quinn is sure he is hunting for a madman: someone who is shooting young women in the heart, defiling their bodies, leaving only the torsos to be found. But in the concrete canyons of New York, this shocking serial murder case is turning into something very different. Struggling against a death trap closing in around her, Jill Clark has a powerful ally in Frank Quinn. But no one knows the true motives behind a rampage of cold-blooded murder or how much more terrifying this is going to get.

    This murder story is definitely gross but details are sketchy for the most part, thank goodness. Typical killer with unresolved issues but different. This killer has issues for sure but plays it out a bit differently. And as usual, Lutz is still one of my favorites.

A killer dubbed "The Night Prowler" has begun terrorizing the citizens of New York City.

    Lutz is one of my favorites and I love the Frank Quinn series. Quinn battles several issues in this one up to the end. Lose love, find love, lose love, find love. Detested by an unfounded charge of rape, more under-current. Not to mention the case at hand. Definitely worth the listen!

Suddenly, the people closest to counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath are being targeted and he realizes that somehow, somewhere he has left the wrong person alive. With his life plunged into absolute peril, and the president ordering him to stay out of the investigation, Harvath must mount his own covert plan for revenge.

    I loved the Vince Flynn character Mitch Rapp and waited for each new book. Now that this won't happen again I was amazed with this story because it had a similar flavor. Not a copy cat but a new direction it seemed for Thor. WOW! I got totally wound up in this one and hope it will come again. Scot Harvath had a new dimension for me and I'm just waiting for the next. Of course George Guidall enhanced the story so great combo.

When he enters the OI compound, he is plunged into a strange world where seemingly mild-mannered scientists - including women half his size - can kick his highly skilled ass.

    It was easy for me to get into the story and I love the super power ideas but at times it got a bit dragged down with the personal relationships. I didn't mind the relationships but it seemed like the book was designed for everyone to fall in love which wasn't what I was expecting. A little more super action would have been good.

Lady Kara Kensington's family paid a high price in money and blood to found the gallery that now lies in ruins. Her search for answers leads Kara and her friend Safia al-Maaz, the gallery's curator, into a world they never dreamed existed.

    I was surprised at how much of this book is not really fiction. But Rollins puts ideas across and they come out a bit unrealistic. This is one that calls for undivided attention. Miss a minute or two and rewind because this is so fast paced. I thoroughly enjoyed the book but I listen to relax. If you like Rollins I think you'll like this. The only oddball thing was having Painter Crow in the book, all on his own. I enjoy the Sigma Force books but this doesn't fall into that category.

    He mutilates his victims. Slices their throats. And carves an X into their flesh. Five years ago, he claimed the lives of six women. Then the killings abruptly stopped - no one knows why. Ex-homicide detective Frank Quinn remembers - which is why he's shocked to see one of the dead women in his office. Actually, she's the identical twin of the last victim, and she wants Quinn to find her sister's murderer. But when the cold case heats up, it attracts the media spotlight - and suddenly the killings start again....
