    The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times best-selling author. The superstore chain PyeMart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project, though, until someone decides to take matters into his own hands.

    I am bias! John Sandford is my favorite author and he hit it out of the park in May with his latest Lucas Davenport, Buried Prey. I will forgive him this Virgil Flowers. I still enjoyed every minute of this book, but it wasn't as good as the others in the series. He is such a talented writer and so detailed, it was still a great story!

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    What was most disappointing about Peter Clines’s story?

    I would have loved this book had I know it was Sci-Fi going into it. I really enjoyed the publishers summery and the reviews I read ahead of time so I was hopeful I would enjoy the book. I felt a little duped. My own fault ~ I maybe should have researched further before listening.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    Love this narrator ~ he does a wonderful job!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 14?

    None ~ it was a good book for Sci-Fi.

No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    Lisa Gardner is one of the best suspense writers ever! This book was exciting from beginning to end. She has remained constant with this series. Each is a good as the last! And they are fantastic!! Kirsten Potter is the perfect D.D. Warren, making everything about this audiobook 5 stars!

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    Story

    Red Mist reminded me of the first books in the series and why I love these characters! The last 3 books have been a little too technical and procedural. Loved how the story unfolded. Just how I want Scarpetta to be!
    Kate Burton is ok as the narrator, but Kate Reading is Scarpetta to me and NO one does Marino better!

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

    I have really enjoyed this series. Explosive Eighteen is better that the last 4 books I would say. I still think Lorelei King is a terrible narrator for this series!! CJ Critt was the perfect voice for all these characters.

    Story

    Envy by Sandra Brown is one of my favorite books of all time!! So cleaver and descriptive! I fell in love with Parker Evans from the beginning and didn't figure anything out until it was revealed to me! Chill factor is a close 2nd favorite book. From there it has been downhill for me with Sandra Brown. She tries, but nothing has come close for me since Envy and Chill Factor. This story was unbelievable and I couldn't wait for it to be over! I did enjoy Victor Slezak however, because he is also the narrator for Envy, but not enough that I will ever listen to this again.

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

    Loved every second of this book!! Lucas Davenport is one of my all time favorite characters and Richard Ferrone narrates him perfectly!!

    I truly loved how this book was written and loved getting to know some more about Lucas when he was younger. This series never disappoints! I will definitely be listening to this one again!!

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Roger says: "review of Abby Cooper series"
    "Entertaining Series"
    Overall

    I was so pleased to come across this series. It does remind me of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. If you enjoy it you should also check out the Sophie Katz series by Kyra Davis and the Body Movers series by Stephanie Bond. Many great hours of entertainment.
    I do agree with other reviewers in their assessment of the narrator~ I have heard much better, but if you can get past her the book is really enjoyable. I look forward to listening to the entire series.

    In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random; if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to...certainly nothing he ever expected.

    John Sandford is one of my favorite authors. He could write the user manual to my microwave and I would still be enthralled by him. Love the series and I have a huge crush on Lucas Davenport! Can't wait for more.

    The scent is unmistakable - gardenias, sweet and delicate, the same perfume that his beautiful first wife, Jennifer, always wore. Opening his eyes in the hospital room where he's recovering from an accident, New Orleans detective Rick Bentz sees her standing in the doorway. Then Jennifer blows him a kiss and disappears. But it couldn't have been Jennifer. She died 12 years ago....

    J. says: "Terrific"
    "Love Lisa Jackson, but not her best!"
    Overall

    I am a huge Lisa Jackson fan and am always entertained by her writing. This book was good, but I have liked some of her other novels better. Worth the time to listen, always.
