    It was his first big murder case - and one of the bloodiest and most violent crimes LAPD detective Danny McGuire would ever encounter. Andrew Jakes, an elderly multimillionaire art dealer, had been brutally murdered in his Hollywood home, his lifeless body tied to his naked young wife. Raped and beaten, the lovely Angela Jakes had barely survived the attack herself. Gazing into her deep, soulful eyes, Danny swore that he'd find the psychopath behind this barbarous act.

    The beginning was a little confusing to me till it all tied together, then this is a can't put down listen. Narrator was excellent as well. It was one of those reads where you can't wait to find out how it turns out and I must say it was pretty far fetched but entertaining none the less. Now if somebody could explain the end to me I would love that, Who is Carlo Hernandez. So if you listen and get something I missed. Let me know.

    A first-date dud, socially awkward, and overly fond of quick-dry clothes, genetics professor Don Tillman has given up on love, until a chance encounter gives him an idea. He will design a questionnaire to uncover the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a late-arriver. Rosie is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent, strangely beguiling, and looking for her biological father - a search that a DNA expert might just be able to help her with.

    Bill Black is a scary guy: a tall ex-con who rides to work on a Harley, and trails an air of violence wherever he goes. In Macon, Georgia, Bill has caught the eye of a wiry little drug dealer and his cunning girlfriend. They think Bill might be a useful ally. They don’t know that Bill is a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent named Will Trent. Or that he is fighting his own demons, undercover and cut off from the support of Sara Linton - the woman he loves, who he dares not tell he is putting himself at such risk.

    Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates - just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago. Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive - but surely this is her worst decision yet.

    and this one did not disappoint me, both characters were so amusing, and even though the story was pretty outlandish, it made me laugh outloud so often. If you are looking for a really light amusing summer read this is it.

    When teenage girls vanish in what was once considered a safe, Louisiana bayou town, the lives of four desperate young locals take unexpected turns, begging the question: Do you every truly know those closest to you? When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes from rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, best friend Haley Landry's relationship with her boyfriend becomes increasingly strained. To make matters worse, her impressionable younger sister Becky has begun idolizing an impetuous, seductive 15 year old who's encouraging her to do dangerous things.

    It took me over two weeks to listen to that short book, I kept hoping there would be a story,but I never could find one aside from the one that was obvious right from the start. The narrator was annoying as well. Don't waste your credit, nothing new here, child is crazy - brought up by crazy Mom who has him kill people - no details on that, simply that fact, and he grows up and kills people. Thats it, thats all.

In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    I am very glad I bought this, sure gives you an insight into Scientology which I think the general population has no idea of. It is very different for those that are "public" Scientologiests like the celebrities - although celebrities are treated VERY special, and then it is like a cult for those that live within in it.

    One of the most popular suspense novels of all time. A well-dressed man stalks the high-class neighborhoods of New York City. He is armed with an ice axe. His victims are strangers. And one cop, Captain Ed Delaney must solve a series of bizarre, gruesome murders that defy logic or method. This shocking story has captured the imaginations of millions like no other modern thriller.

    Story

    I tried to get into this book, it got such great reviews, but after four hours and still no idea where the plot was heading... I knew more about the book by reading the summarry on audible. So I decided to give up. I am particularly sorry as I bought the Second Deadly sin as well. I agree with some of the reviewers how the book being dated may have not helped in my enjoyment as they were trying to make the main character as a sexual pervert of some type because he wanted to have sex with sunglasses on or masks. Nowadays, that would be nothing.

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    I could not get into this story, I suppose if you are interested in hearing about the disection of a human that has been grisly murdered or the narrator droning on and on about some crate that has travelled over the years and the murders that follow it then this would be the book for you. I prefer more character development, maybe some humour, which this book certainly did not have, and more fast paced than this was. Halfway through and I gave up.

Now another teenage girl is found dead on a deserted beach... and once again, Mark faces a hostile town convinced of his guilt. Hilary Bradley is determined to prove that Mark is innocent, but she’s on a lonely, dangerous quest.

    The killer turned out to be a big surprise, but otherwise the store was pretty average. Average characters, easy to put down, easy to listen to , did not love it but lately I have found so many I can't even listen to that this one at lease was a keeper. It does get interesting right from the beginning which is a plus for me.

    On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the American embassy in Tehran and captured dozens of American hostages, sparking a 444-day ordeal and a quake in global politics still reverberating today. But there's a little-known footnote to the crisis: six Americans escaped. And a midlevel agent named Antonio Mendez devised an ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue them. Armed with foreign film visas, Mendez and an unlikely team of CIA agents and Hollywood insiders traveled to Tehran....

    While the movie was an edge of your seat movie, I left the movie wanting to know more details and background, so I got the book. It is well written and narrated, and certainly does give you the background, without going into unnecessary and boring details. Highly recommend it.

    I could not put it down. The characters were very well developed, the story very believable, it probably happened, it led me to looking up pictures and stories of the camp the woman was in. Having had family killed in the holocaust myself, I had to stop doing that though. It is way too upsetting, but this was a beautiful story.
