    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    "SCI Fi or Mystery"
    Overall

    No where was it mentioned that this story takes place in some future time. I was so confused as to why they didn't recognize gun shots as the cause of death. DUH! Because guns have been outlawed for so long...I don't like sci fi so I will finish the book but I am not happy I used my monthy credit for this book. So fair warning to the next listner.

    Dark secrets lurk beneath the glamour and glitter of New York's high-society life in this riveting tale of murder, obsession, and revenge. Jo Slater, one of the grandest of New York's grande dames, is knocked off her pedestal when her husband of 20 years dies under strange circumstances and leaves his fortune to a mysterious French countess. When Jo discovers she has been the victim of a plot, she decides to set things straight. And nothing is going to get in her way.

    "Dark Comedy at it's best!"
    Overall

    I loved this author's story. The narrator kicked it up even a higher notch. It was funny and entertaining. This is a book for pure reading pleasure. I even bought a copy for a friend to take on a long train ride. Knew it would make the miles fly by. It was a true "Dark Comedy". The sequal was fab too.

    David Wolfe's life is approaching an exhilarating peak: a successful San Francisco lawyer, he's about to get married and has been primed for a run for Congress. But when the phone rings and he hears the voice of Hana Arif, the Palestinian woman with whom he had a passionate affair in law school, he begins a completely unexpected journey. The day after Hana's call, the prime minister of Israel is assassinated by a suicide bomber - and soon Hana is accused of being the mastermind behind the murder.

    Overall

    This book is the first book I have read that gives both sides of the "Midlle East" situation.
    It cover the Isreal and Palestine view. It defends neither, but gives us a better understanding how deep the rift goes. I am very glad I read(listened) to this informative and entertaining book. It is a great story!

    The child of a scheming father and ruthless mother, Lady Jane Grey is born during a time when ambition dictates action. Cousin to Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I, she is merely a pawn in a political and religious game in which one false step means a certain demise. But Lady Jane has remarkable qualities that help her to withstand the constant pressures of the royal machinery far better than most expect.

    "Good Read!"
    Overall

    I love the Tudor time period. This extended my knowledge of what happened after Henry VIII.
    Well written, could have used some editing but all in all was a book you wanted to read and know the outcome.

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    Deborah says: "How Does One Manage?"
    "Well done"
    Overall

    I love Dave. In this book you can feel his pain from Katrina and the lack of support from the outside world. The mystery is well done and keeps us in suspence until the end. I learned more about Katrina without the book begoming GRIM.

    Young, idealistic, and overworked, Jonah is living the lonely life of a medical student in New York City when he accidentally stumbles across a murder in progress: a woman, being stabbed to death in the middle of the sidewalk. Without thinking, he rushes in to protect her, inadvertently killing her attacker in the process. Thrust into the media spotlight, crushed by guilt, Jonah quickly learns that heroism isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Susie says: "Too realistic for me."
    "Too Long"
    Overall

    Needed editing. Keep repeating same behavior and I guess it was building suspense but for me it was getting tiring. First book I did not finish listening to. I have been hooked an audible books for over 5 years. Listen to about 3 a month. So for me not to finish is very unusual.
