    In this enthralling new audiobook, Rendell, "the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world" (Time), takes Inspector Wexford back to his days as a young policeman, and to the man he has long suspected of murder - serial murder.Outside the house where Wexford investigated his first murder case - a woman found strangled in her bedroom - he noticed a short, muscular man wearing a scarf and walking a dog. He gave Wexford an unnerving stare....

    Narrator's voice irritated me. Unable to finish book due to this.

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    The first three stories were okay, if not a little "gory" in places. The narrator's voice in the final story really irritated me. I wanted to hit the female who was telling her story.

    Twenty-seven-year-old Kristi Bentz is lucky to be alive. Not many people her age have nearly died twice at the hands of a serial killer, and lived to tell about it. Her dad, New Orleans detective Rick Bentz, wants Kristi to stay in New Orleans and out of danger. But if anything, Kristi's experiences have made her even more fascinated by the mind of the serial killer.

    Not enough about the detective, too much about the daughter.

    Something very strange -- and sinister -- is going on in the Russian woods at Borodino. In a place called Mrs. Ivanova's Charm School, young KGB agents are being taught by American POW's how to be model citizens of the USA. The Soviet goal -- to infiltrate the United States undetected. When an unsuspecting American tourist stumbles upon this secret, he sets in motion a CIA investigation that will reveal horrifying police state savagery and superpower treachery.

    Char says: "Incredibly Good"
    "Really good!"
    Overall

    As usual, Scott Brick did an excellent job with the naration. The story itself was very good, I liked (and disliked as required) the characters and was really quite sorry when the story finished. Believable and quite engrossing.

    As a devastating hurricane approaches, as the benighted creations of Victor Helios begin to spin out of control, as New Orleans descends into chaos and the future of humanity hangs in the balance, the only hope rests with Victor's first, failed attempt to build the perfect human. Deucalion's centuries-old history began as the original manifestation of a soulless vision and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator.

    William says: "Frustrating"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this series. The narrator was excellent and succeeded in conveying the correct amount of drama and slight comedic relief. I was sorry when the book finished, and that doesn't happen very often!

    I usually enjoy Stephen King's books but for some reason I just couldn't get interested in this one, and believe me I really tried!

    For Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid's 32nd birthday, she gets an unusual gift: a homicide call out. The crime scene is in the elite Hillside neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. The victim is hotshot investigative reporter Percy Crenshaw, who has been bludgeoned to death in his carport.

    Amy says: "Good book. Bad narrator."
    "Close Case"
    Overall

    The story itself was okay, but, I found the narrator's accent very distracting. She was good but someone with an appropriate accent would have enabled me to concentrate more on the story line.
