    Philip Roth is the most decorated American writer of his generation. In Exit Ghost, this master author crafts what may be the final chapter in the story of his beloved hero Nathan Zuckerman. After 11 years of isolation in his New England mountain refuge, Zuckerman returns to New York City and makes three important connections that threaten his carefully protected sense of isolation.

    Overall

    I didn't find this book enjoyable at all - it was boring til the end. In fact if I had been reading the book I don't think I would have gone past the first chapter; all the talk about incontinence was too much, and a 70yr old mans' fondness for young women was distasteful.
    All in all I did not enjoy the story...or the reading of it.

She is excited about her new life, ready to make new friends...until a hand reaches out of the swirling mists - the hand of a blind child. She is asking for friendship...and seeking revenge.

    I have just downloaded the last unread book of John Saul! I love his books, although they can be so alike in many ways, they are also so different and you can never really guess how it's going to end. His chief characters don't always win!! I love every one of them.

    At a pre-wedding party for his daughter Sarah, Moe Prager is approached by his ex-wife and former PI partner Carmella Melendez. It seems Carmella's estranged sister Alta has been murdered, but no one in New York City seems to care. Why? Alta, a FDNY EMT, and her partner had months earlier refused to give assistance to a dying man at a fancy downtown eatery. Moe decides to help Carmella as a means to distract himself from his own life-and-death struggle.

    Story

    I found these books a little boring....tho' i listened to the entire series anyway. The narrator, to me, seemed to put the wrong intonations on words and sentences, and each story seemed to be 'finished & explained" two or three times during the reading, before a 'twist' lead into another half a dozen chapters. All in all i found them readable.

    Boohoo! i can't believe I have read ALL the Posadas County books! what am I to do! These books are good stories without the seemingly necessary sex scenes of other books, they are just good straight, interesting and enjoyable reads. If anyone knows of a series in this same catorgory please let me know!
    I will miss Bill Gasner very much!

    There isn't much fun in the sun when a billionaire real estate tycoon is found murdered on the Tilt-a-Whirl at a seedy seaside amusement park in the otherwise quiet summer tourist town of Sea Haven. John Ceepak, a former MP just back from Iraq, has just joined the Sea Haven police department. The job offer came from an old Army buddy who hoped to give Ceepak at least a summer's worth of rest and relaxation to help him forget the horrors of war. Instead, Ceepak will head up the murder investigation.

    Story

    I listened to the series and loved them all. They have good story lines, and the narration is "sassy" - if a male narrator can be sassy, lol. I got a lotta smiles and head nods at the comments from Danny Boyle! Would recommend this series, but read 1-7 in order...much better!

    I did enjoy the story despite being disappointed that it was all really just a love story - since I found it in the Thriller section, I had expected much more... I kept imagining a made for tv movie on 13th Street!
    However all in all, it was interesting and the narration was was easy to listen to.

    On one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park - and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of The Lake in the park. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes - removed with such precision, as if done by the careful hand of a surgeon - that have Dallas most alarmed.
