    Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help local law enforcement on the worst of cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the region’s most trusted investigative positions. Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop in the Midwest. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good Paul and his team see the case file or work the murder. Their lives intersect when Ann arrives to pass a case off her desk and onto his.

    Story
    Would you listen to Full Disclosure again? Why?

    Part of the fun for me is trying to figure out what comes next. Therefore, cannot read again, however, the storyline here is so clean and well written that I might reference certain sections.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I always admire Dee Henderson's writing such suspenseful stories with clean langauge and care when developing her characters. The best part of this particular story is that there are many surprise twists. You may figure things out but then there is always something that adds to the suspense.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Would like to see Henderson books as a TV series.

    Story
    If you’ve listened to books by Elizabeth Peters before, how does this one compare?

    This series is always exciting and fast paced. This book has a few new turns and keeps
    the listening fresh, as well as, exciting.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    Barbara Rosenblat is one of the few performers that gets it all right. Not justin this series, but all she reads is an exciting listen.

    The fledgling church is being scattered by persecution. It is spearheaded by a fanatical young Pharisee who does not realize he is unwittingly aiding a divine mandate to spread the truth “unto the ends of the earth …”Young Julia has everything money can buy —except for acceptance by either Gentiles or Judeans in Tiberias. When she discovers the secret her beloved Greek father has kept all these years, she is devastated. Julia and her Hebrew mother are indeed less than second-class citizens.

    Teresa Cumberland says: "Great as a Stand Alone"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Damascus Way?

    This story had a historical feel and kept you wondering what was coming next.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Damascus Way?

    The blinding of Saul and the events that followed. It must have happened that way
    although the biblical account is devoid of the surrounding events.


    What does Susan Lyons bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Greater depth of interpetation.

    Goldy Schulz is thrilled to be catering a holiday breakfast feast for the staff of the Aspen Meadow Library. But little does she know that on the menu, alongside the Great Expectations Grapefruit, Chuzzlewit Cheese Pie, and Bleak House Bars, is a large helping of murder.

    What made the experience of listening to Sweet Revenge the most enjoyable?

    Entertaining and funny. Especially relevant if you know the characters.
    Sometimes unbelievable situations but they make you smile. Good for
    your down periods.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    Barbara Rosenblat's narration brings all the characters to life and in their own
    sphere.


    Any additional comments?

    Each book that I finish puts you into the mood for the next installment.
