    Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. It’s just not easy being an ethical serial killer - especially while trying to avoid the unshakable suspicions of the dangerous Sergeant Doakes (who believes Dexter is a homicidal maniac... which, of course, he is). In an attempt to throw Doakes off his trail, Dexter has had to slip deep into his foolproof disguise. While not working as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, he now spends nearly all his time with his cheerful girlfriend, Rita....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have read other reviews that warned of bad narration and had avoided that fate until now. The narrator sounded like he was whispering. It was so hard to finish the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storyline was interesting.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Find a new narrator.

    The man at Charles Blakey's door has a proposition almost too strange for words. He wants to spend the summer in Charles' basement, and Charles cannot even begin to guess why.

    Story

    This is classic Mosely after his dectective genre. Mosely is the type of author that makes one think and deals with real issues in an interesting way. This book deals with the ideas of slavery, heritage, right versus wrong, and some other issues. It held my attention but I probably would have liked the print format better. No a bad listen because the narrator is excellent, just have to pay attention.

    John Cleaver has called a demon - literally called it on the phone - and challenged it to a fight. He has faced two of the monsters already, barely escaping with his life, and now he's done running; he's taking the fight to them. But as he wades through his town's darkest secrets, searching for any sign of who the demon might be, one thing becomes all too clear: in a game of cat and mouse with a supernatural killer, the human is always the mouse.

    Story

    A great continuation of this series. I hope there is more to come. The main character is well developed and creates such a conflict of emotions within the reader/listener. The story is interesting and suspensful. This one hints that there is more to come and I hope that is true.

    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    Story

    This is one that keeps you guessing and while clues point in one direction, you never really know for sure about Jacob. The narrator is good and the plot is interesting from start to finish. This is one I will listen to again.

    A serial murderer known only by a grotesquely apt nickname - Buffalo Bill - is stalking women. He has a purpose, but no one can fathom it, for the bodies are discovered in different states. Clarice Starling, a young trainee at the FBI Academy, is surprised to be summoned by Jack Crawford, chief of the Bureau's Behavioral Science section. Her assignment: to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter - Hannibal the Cannibal - who is kept under close watch in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

    Story

    Great narrator and great story. I am always grateful when a movie sticks closely to the plot of the book. Much of the storyline is the same; however, there are some interesting differences and a little more insight into Agent Starling.

    In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies. But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon - the terrifying persona he calls "Mr. Monster" - might now be using him.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mr. Monster?

    No one moment stands out. The entire book held my attention from beginning to end! Can't wait for more.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Star Wars films), fresh off the success of his uproarious, Audie-nominated performance of the mock children’s book Go the F**k to Sleep, delivers a swaggering, darkly-humored rendering of Chester Himes’ classic first novel.

    Rebecca Roztocil says: "Excellent Reading!"
    "No rage while listening to this one"

    What made the experience of listening to A Rage in Harlem the most enjoyable?

    Samuel L. Jackson is superb as the narrator. I laughed from start to finish. He is convincing in every role and makes each character come alive. This is one I will listen to again and again.
