    We enter The Last Precinct through the reverberating aftershocks of Black Notice, inconceivably finding Virginia's Chief Medical Examiner, Kay Scarpetta, an object of suspicion and criminal investigation. The nightmare on Scarpetta's doorstep continues as she discovers that the so-called Werewolf murders may have extended to New York City and into the darkest corners of her past.

    Kathleen says: "Another great Scarpetta novel"
    "Cornwell Does it Again, Almost"

    Story
    Where does The Last Precinct rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks around 15 out of 25. The story was a little slow, and there was a lot of extemporaneous information given. If you could edit out the "dead wood" you would have a much more riveting storyline.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kay Scarpetta herself. She is the whole reason I read her adventures.Her thought processes and willingness to act keep me coming back for more.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Kate Reading brings the characters to life. I will definitely look for more of her work.

    Doctor Who: Blackout is a great episode. Like all the crazy adventures the Doctor has, this one brings excitement to an hour of listening pleasure.


    What does Stuart Milligan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The different voices that Stuaret Milligan can achieve brings the storyline to life. He brings stronger characters to the front, leading the listener through the tornado of a storyline.

    What disappointed you about Dominion?

    The Narrator had a mono-tone that truly aides in sleep. It felt like the story didn't want to go anywhere, circling the same character/idea and not taking them anywhere.

    A tipsy young woman seeking aid on a desolate highway disappears into the inky black night. A retired schoolteacher is stabbed to death in broad daylight. Two women are butchered after closing time in a small-town beauty parlor. The ultimate whodunits, these crimes demand the attention of LAPD detective Milo Sturgis and his collaborator on the crime beat, psychologist Alex Delaware.

    Would you try another book from Jonathan Kellerman and/or John Rubinstein?

    I am a big Jonathan Kellerman fan but this book could not hold my interest. It started off with action but took several chapters to tie the action into the story. I had to force myself to finish. Telling myself it would get better.

    Story

    A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the burden of knowing that war cannot be avoided.

    B.J. says: "Another terrific listen."
    "A Breath of Snow & Ashes is a breath of fresh air!"

They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fiery Cross to be better than the print version?

    Davina Porter brings this world to life. Diana Gabaldon has created a rich and inviting world and Ms. Porter, the color that gives it life. I look forward to the time of day when I can turn the book on and sit back to llisten.
