    In a shadowy, crumbling Edinburgh housing development, a junkie lies dead of an overdose, his body surrounded by signs of Satanic worship. Inspector John Rebus could call it an accident. But won’t. Now he’s got to search the city, from the tunnels of its dark underbelly to the private sanctum of the upper crust, to find the perfect hiding place for a killer.

    I really like the dry Scottish Humor in the Ian Rankin Inspector Reubus series. I had listened to about half of the series and decided to listen to them again, in order, which really helps, to keep you from those "what the heck moments "

    Nothing could keep Christopher and Rebecca apart: not her abusive parents, or even the fiancé she brought home after running away to England. But when World War II finally strikes the island of Jersey, the Nazi invaders ship Rebecca to Europe as part of Hitler’s Final Solution against the Jewish population.

    Red Notice is a searing expose of the wholesale whitewash by Russian authorities of Magnitsky's imprisonment and murder, slicing deep into the shadowy heart of the Kremlin to uncover its sordid truths.

    Red Notice ... to me this book was very frightening . A country with no real justice . Like a game of poker where the rules change randomly with no warning . It was a VERY LONG book. Which seemed to me , a man. Claiming naivety, while completely legal , a very dangerous game . Russia isn’t really known for their love of Americans .
    While I was a child , I was aware of this fact. I believe this would be impossible for a far more intelligent person to be unaware of this.
    It was horrible how many people were sacrificed in a sharks pursuit of capital. And he’s too little , too late , show of his “charity” toward the cause of “being a human rights activist “ Just my take after listening to the Wall Street of Russia’s self righteousness .

    In a quiet suburban neighborhood, in the house next door, a family is brutally murdered for no apparent reason. You canï¿¿ï¿¿ï¿¿t help thinking, "That could have been us". And you start to wonder, "What if we're next?"

    That's the question Jim and Ellen Cutter are asking, and the answers aren't reassuring.

    I listened to this whole series, there are 4 books total. I would describe it as “Save Your Soul For Dummies, ( or a survivalist guide ) . I really got into these books. Despite the whiney butt, no showers, hot soda ? You get used to it. The concept is very cool. A mixture of recent craziness. Ok ...I have to say it . One Spoiler Alert ! The Antichrist with his very own reality show . .... just too strange but it brings things into perspective for people now.

    That’s all Folks. But truly wonderfully written, narrated. And despite the topic, quite a bit of humor.

    Eccentric, reclusive Walter Rennert lies cold at the bottom of his stairs. At first glance the scene looks straightforward: a once-respected psychology professor done in by booze and a bad heart. But his daughter, Tatiana, insists that her father has been murdered, and she persuades Clay Edison to take a closer look at the grim facts of Rennert's life. What emerges is a history of scandal and violence and an experiment gone horribly wrong that ended in the brutal murder of a coed.

    John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First, he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce - and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So, we fight, to defend Earth and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding.

    Attorney Paul Riley has built a lucrative career on his famous prosecution of Terry Burgos, a serial killer who emulated the lyrics of a violent song to gruesomely murder six girls, including the daughter of billionaires Harland and Natalia Bentley. Now, fifteen years later, the police are confronted with a new series of murders - and the grisly second verse to the song. Riley is the first to realize that the two cases are connected and that the line between copycat and cover-up has been blurred.

    Thunder in the morning calm was a very adventurous book. Demonstrates how a mans true nature can remain the same under any circumstances. Also shows what a small group of well placed Christians can ultimately accomplish .

They spend their days biking around their sleepy little English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code; little chalk stick figures they leave for each other as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing will ever be the same.
