  • Three Stations: An Arkady Renko Novel

    In Three Stations, Arkady Renko’s skills are put to their most severe test. Though he has been technically suspended from the prosecutor’s office for once again turning up unpleasant truths, he strives to solve a last case: the death of an elegant young woman whose body is found in a construction trailer on the perimeter of Moscow’s main rail hub. It looks like a simple drug overdose to everyone—except to Renko, whose examination of the crime scene turns up some inexplicable clues.

    Overall

    I am a big fan of this author. His book Rose is incredible. This novel however seems to wander a bit and just doesn't carry that ability the author has to immerse us in the character that he has demonstrated so well in the past. Wish it had been better because I really am a fan and wait for any new novels by this author

    Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    Story

    It's a good story that keeps the reader engaged most of the time. A little fluff here and there but mostly very engaging. I really am a fan of Scott Brick the narrator but he mispronounces the name of the indian tribe which is part of the story. Given the fact it's a significant part of the story, I would have thought he would have checked on the proper pronounciation ..Miwoks are pronounced Me wok not MY wok

    Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour, and wit. Maybe Adrian was more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is retired. He’s had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He’s certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove.

    Story

    The writer is clearly skilled but the actual ending of this story was just not worth the effort. An unsympathetic protaganist and a pointless end. The reviews misled me but maybe someone saw something in this that I sure didn't.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    This story reminds me a bit of the Hearts in Atlantis book. A well done story about my generation, it's time and place. Too bad the Hearts book was made into a lousy movie. I hope for a better fate with this one. Others will describe the plot . I will say it was interesting, touching and had the S. King of old when he is at his best and not just writing for the money. When he is in good form he is great and he is in good form on this one.

    During a bone-chilling snap of record cold weather, a series of enigmatic drowning deaths play out in a small summer resort community on Long Island's Shinnecock Bay. Quickly implicated in the death is a local college professor named Deacon Kane, himself recovering from the accidental drowning death of his only son years ago - recovering slowly, and with the help of alcohol and an addictive, messy affair with a married woman.

    Overall

    This writer was a new one for me. His style is noir. The story kept me interested all the way through. I figured out who the villain was before the end but the journey was well worth it. I am going to definitely look for more of this author.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Zachary says: "Matterhorn"
    "Good depiction"
    Overall

    I would say this is a fair depiction of how things happen. Since it was fiction I was hoping those who were so politically or career motivated would have some unfortunate things happen to them but it wasnt to be.

    Sometimes in life, opposites are drawn to each other; somehow, each providing the other with something they don't have, but desperately need. National Book Award finalist Elizabeth McCracken pens this graceful, moving tale of an unlikely pairing of two men and their lifelong partnership in show business.

    Steven says: "A Keeper!"
    "Good but was hoping for more"
    Overall

    I like this author. Her short stories are amazing. This book was entertaining and based on what appeared to be an Abbott and Costello relatinship between two comics. It provides a lot of insight into that life but I was just hoping for a bit more. Especially from someone whose writing I really do admire.

    The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark best seller Presumed Innocent, Innocent continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, 20 years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.

    Suzn F says: "Terrific Book"
    "disappointing"
    Overall

    I really liked the presumed innocent book. This one is a sad disappointment. Rusty is now seems more egotistical and self serving. The ending is a bit of a let down in terms of surprise or ingenuity. The only good part was the cross exam. No more for me. This one had way to much fluff and filler with no real surprise, involvement with the characters or much of anything
