    Three never-before-collected short stories from number-one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly. In "Cahoots", a backroom poker game turns deadly when a cheater is exposed. In "Mulholland Dive", a man who deciphers the hidden codes of accident scenes investigates a fatality off L.A.'s most fabled roadway. In "Two-Bagger", an obsessed cop tails an ex-con he believes is about to carry out a contract killing.

    I liked that a good book that is critically acclaimed about pot heads on a beach exists. You can tell the guy who wrote it is mixing in his own worldly experiences with his love of weed and interesting stories. I liked this book, and the way he tells it, you can almost tell when he is referencing his own life. Ending was kind of freaky but surprises are always fun. The reader does a good job with all the characters and accents and does not have any annoying habits, I recommend this book and audio book to anyone, stoner or not. Oh ya it was interesting to read a book written by a British person, instead of saying he ways 170 lbs, for example, he says 11 stone! Haha. It is neat to see how other people view Americans. Too bad there were no Americans living on the beach, but there were some in the book playing a key role. Just don’t waist your time with the movie till you have read/listened to the book.

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    I don’t understand what so many of these people are so mad about, unlike the first book witch takes Odd throughout the town and has a mystery style to it. This book is more of a rollercoaster style adventure, its awesome, its different from the first because instead of being a mystery it is an adventure, and let me say it is a great adventure I really loved this book, I could not put it down because you have to see what is going to happen next. Ending is worth debating as well, but you will have to read it in order to talk about it. Enjoy. Also the reader does a great job, the voice of Detura will haunt my dreams for some time.

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    His dumb supervisor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The riot crime scene


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    What he did when the shots were fired at the riot crime scene. Shows Boschs passion.


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed this book, as I always do the Bosch novels. Ended rather abruptly but it was a hard case to solve so I’m glad there were not any last few pages twists. The reader is new to the series, and also to audio books in general I think, but he did a fine job, “Haters gona hate”, don’t let these other guys whining about the reader bother you. Good book, good story, good reader. An up to the Bosch standards book.

    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    SK did an ok job reading, he did not do voices for Rolend and the Ka-Tet, but he did do voices, some not bad, for the storys within the stories. Over all his preformance was amature, and next time i hope he uses a profesional. The story was good, i realy likes the story with in the story within the story, no doubt the best story, the other two were good, and i found the concept of a "Stark Blast" interestingly creepy. A good addition to the DT series, and i hope he does more.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    This was one heck of a story, the ups downs twists turns, it was honestly one of my favorite SK books and i have read too many of them. I think SK has matured as a writer, there were no long descriptions of meaningless things, just the awesome story of a guy out of time. My favorite SK book since drwwing of the three for sure. I recomend it to anyone, SK fan or new to him, or just ANYONE!!! Great read.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    Rorin giveing it to King Orin

    Any additional comments?

    Chris did a great job. I think people are mad because their a bunch of winy babies who wanted thing to go the way THEY wanted, not the way that logicaly needed to happen. If an auther wrights just to please the readers and not to fulfill his storie then thats the real dissapointment. Chris did a great job and i love the ending. Some stories are not ment to go on forever, even if the charicters are.
