    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    What did you love best about Suspect?

    The interaction between Scott and Maggie grew so completely. You could just see Maggie and her desire to love and protect. Scott tries and succeeds in letting Maggie know he loves her. What a great story. It keeps you guessing as to who the "bad guys" are.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Suspect?

    In the beginning with Pete and Maggie. I learned so much about MWD's. What Heroes they are!


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

    No this was my first experience with Mr. Andrews's writing, but it won't be the last!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I couldn't stop once I got started.

    The year is 2016, and America is no more. The United States, Canada, and Mexico now comprise a single, unified front to the world: the North American Union. Implanted ID chips are soon to become mandatory for every citizen of the NAU, and Trez Sleighton, a disgruntled ex-Army officer, takes to the mountains of Colorado to come to terms with the changing world-and his own hand in the whole mess. Then sounds the trumpet. Around the planet, people simply disappear.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Pray to be better than the print version?

    na


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jesus - He's coming back soon.


    Any additional comments?

    An awesomely great listen. This is a different take on who and what is going to be left, vampires, and werewolves? Well, why not! The beasts in the pit are beyond imagination anyway. I can't wait to listen to "Hell." Please hurry!

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Venita says: "Lenghtly but good, ending was rushed"
    "You have GOT to be kidding!"
    Overall

    Short review: I love King's books. I "liked" this one until the end - Stephen, "YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!" I may never read a King book again.

    He's Hollywood's most dazzling star, who is worshiped by millions and hated by one twisted soul. His existence is under siege as a series of terrifying, enigmatic "messages" breaches the security systems of his Bel Air estate. The boxes arrive mysteriously, one by one, at Channing Manheim's compound. Manheim's security chief, ex-cop Ethan Truman, is used to looking beneath the surface of things. But until he entered the orbit of a Hollywood icon, he had no idea just how slippery reality could be.

    Peggie says: "Entertaining"
    "Too Bad"
    Overall

    It's unfortunate that a great book has to be ruined by the seller! The Face is a great read once you get past the burps and glitches in Part 1 and Part 3. I've been waiting 3 months now to get a new download for this book. Hold off ordering until you check and make sure you can really listen without the burps and glitches.
