    In the emotional aftermath of her baby's death, Em starts running. Soon she runs from her husband, to the airport, down to the Florida Gulf, and out to Vermillion Key, where her father has offered the use of a shack he has kept there for years. This is doing her all kinds of good, until one day she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering. Pickering also enjoys the privacy of Vermillion Key, but the young women he brings there suffer the consequences. Will Em be next?

    "Good Short Story"
    Overall

    I liked this story! Normally, I feel that Stephen King can be too "wordy". This was a good thriller. I enjoyed listening to it on my commute home.

    In a bold novel, Harlan Coben (Tell No One) continues to stake out new ground in suspense, unleashing a haunting tale of secrets and betrayal...and of one man's search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

    Ed says: "Excellent twists and turns"
    "Too Graphic for Me"
    Overall

    The pointless, graphic details in this book turned my stomach. I couldn't even listen to the first part of this book. The narrator is terrible, but so is the story. Waste of a credit in my opinion.

    A strange doll is left on Tommy Phan's front steps, stranger than anyone could ever imagine. Later he hears an odd popping sound and is intrigued to find it coming to life. Tommy pursues the thing as it scrambles away, and then is pursued by it as it evolves from a terrifying and vicious manikin into a larger, more formidable opponent bent on killing him. What in the world is this thing and why is it after him?

    gslindner says: "Quintessential Dean Koontz"
    "Tedious Torture"
    Overall

    This book started out pretty good then turned into usless babble. Tedious details, pointless conversations, and tons of details that were unnecessary. I fast forwarded most of the second part, then gave up and didn't finish the book. I just didn't care anymore. I hope the doll killed every character in the end!

    Mary DiNunzio is a trademark Lisa Scottoline heroine - she's strong, she's smart, and she's got plenty of attitude. In recent years, she's become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office one morning - in mile-high stilettos - is super sexy Trish Gambone, her high school rival.

    M. Devlin says: "A welcome return to Rosato and Associates"
    "Ehhhh"
    Overall

    This book started out really interesting, and then took a turn. I listened to it all because I paid for it, but unfortunately the main character was annoying to me, she was such a doormat! But the reader was really, really good!

    In the northern California town of Coventry, two teenage brothers go into the woods one day, but only one comes back. No one knows what happened to the younger brother, Josh, until 20 years later, when the older brother, Oren, now an ex-investigator for the Army CID, returns to Coventry for the first time in many years. His first morning back, he hears a thump on the front porch. Lying in front of the door is a human jawbone, the teeth still intact. And it is not the first such object, his father tells him.

    Paige says: "A good, solid listen"
    "1 Note Story"
    Overall

    This story stayed on one note - never changed. I was waiting for the suspense or anything that changed the slow pace of this story. There were so many characters that in the early parts of the book I was confused by who was who. I liked the narrator, he was good at making different types of voices that were interesting. I figured out the ending really early on. All in all I found this story boring, but gave me something to listen to on my commute.

    On a weekend vacation, Beth Anderson is unnerved when a stroll on the beach reveals what appears to be a skull. When a stranger approaches, Beth panics and covers the evidence. But when she later returns to the beach, the skull is gone. Beth digs deeper into the mystery of the skull, and everywhere she goes, Keith Henson, the stranger from the beach, seems to appear. A body washes ashore, and Beth begins to think she needs more help than she bargained for.

    Overall

    This story is the equivalent of a Lifetime Orginal Movie for women. Suspense combined with a sappy love story and a weak ending. But it was entertaining! It kept me going through my commute. At first I didn't like the narrator, but she grew on me. So overall its a good story to pass time.

    Swan Peak finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina.

    "Who Cares?"
    Overall

    After listening to the horribly graphic description of sexual abuse, images of inhumanity against others and not hearing a single redeeming feature of any character I decided this book was not worth finishing. The only thing that made me listen as far as I did, was the great voice of the narrator. In my opinion this book is not a good listen for a woman.

    By listening to these specially composed melodies with their rhythmic repetitions of German and English a few times, you pick up over 200 essential words and phrases that will not just be on the tip of your tongue, but will be burned deeply into your long-term memory in next to no time.

    You only learn simple phrases but it is a good and entertaining way to bursh up on basic German.
