    Like his father before him, Brian Holloway is a safe man. That is, his specialty is opening safes. Every job is a little mystery, and he has yet to encounter a lock he can't break or a box he can't crack. But the day Holloway gets called in to open a rare, antique safe in a famous author's library, his skills open a door that should have remained closed.

    What did you love best about The Safe Man?

    The story it's rather an uncomplicated one, but some supernatural and Connelly's unmistakable style ads up to an entertaining experience. Go for it!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Connelly? Why or why not?

    Yes I would, because everything I read so far from this author captivated my attention and fantasy. He combines the journalist's experience and fast pace with a true literary vein. His personages are larger than life and yet you can relate to them.


    Have you listened to any of David W. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No yet.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh.

  • Back to Blood: A Novel

    Story

    As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay - with officer Nestor Camacho on board - Tom Wolfe is off and running. Here is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous best-selling novels, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

    Cynthia says: "Masterful Story-tel!ing & Great Narration!"
    "Irreverent and thought provoking."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Back to Blood to be better than the print version?

    I have only the audio edition of the book, so I can't tell. This audio edition is very well narrated. More like a performance, than a reading.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The police chief. He is flawed, but not rotten to the bones.


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Who was the most memorable character of Back to Blood and why?

    Each character is memorable in its own way and place, but I couldn't single out any one of them. They are quintessential for their own types.
