    The "Hot Kid" of the U.S. Marshals Service, Carl Webster maintains the law with a cool, showdown attitude. He's one of the richest creations in Elmore Leonard's half century of delivering the goods. From his appearances in the critically acclaimed novels The Hot Kid and Up in Honey's Room, Carl returns to lay down the law in a novella that originally appeared as a serial in the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

    Overall

    I was very disappointed in this book. I was expecting some new Carl Webster stories and instead I am hearing shorter versions of three other books that I already own.
    The narrator is not as fitting as the narrator on the original books. If Mr. Leonard wanted to put out this book he should have used his original narrator or just cut in snippets from the original books

    Julia Hamill has made a horrifying discovery on the grounds of her new home in rural Massachusetts: a skull buried in the rocky soil � human, female, and, according to the trained eye of Boston medical examiner Maura Isles, scarred with the unmistakable marks of murder.

    I was sucked when I read the synopsis thinking this would be a good historical fiction only to discover that this is a historical romance novel.

    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Wendy S. Ohl says: "Good story, hard to listen to"
    "A wonderful book"
    Overall

    This book is one of Grisham's best works. It puts lives to the people in many of his books. There are tales of how the characters lives affected their families. The tales made me laugh and cry and all of those emotions made all of the tales so real.
    The best part was hear Mr. Grisham narrate.

    Overall

    This is one of the worst books that I have listened to. There are incredible errors in the storyline. One minute the characters are doing an act in a certain way and then there is a sentence change and the characters have changed the way again. There are parts of the book that seem like they have been taken from other authors books.
    I am listening to it just to see where the storyline goes next.

    This book is a copy of the movie not the book. The actual book was a truly suspenceful book. This book even changes who the bad guy is like the movie did,

    Here is history that reads like fiction: the riveting story of two founding fathers of American industry, Andrew Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick, and the bloody steelworkers' strike that transformed their fabled partnership into a furious rivalry. Author Les Standiford begins at the bitter end, when the dying Carnegie proposes a final meeting after two decades of separation. Frick's reply: "Tell him that I'll meet him in hell."

    D. Littman says: "an extended journalistic tour"
    "MEET YOU IN HELL"
    Overall

    This is very interesting book however there is huge mistake in a fact that needs to be amended. The Saugus Iron Works is in Massachusetts not Michigan as stated by the narrator. While listening to this there are similarities in the facts between Atlas Shrugged and this book.
    It made wonder if the lives of the characters were the basis of the book?
    There is also some embelishment of Carneigie's charity. It is rumored that the only reason the charities were started was because he did not want the goverment to get any of his money.
