    Cynthia Decker became a cop against her father, Peter Decker's, wishes. But police work is in her blood, and she's determined to make it on her own -- even now, when her razor sharp instincts for danger are telling her that something is very wrong... The signs are impossible to ignore: things being moved around in her apartment, the destruction of personal effects. But it's a harrowing trip down a dark canyon road that confirms Cindy's worst fears. Someone fiendishly relentless, and with decidedly evil intentions, is stalking her.

    What did you love best about Stalker?

    The story kept going throughout. Decker, the dad, showed a very human side when his daughter was in danger.


    What about Mitchell Greenberg’s performance did you like?

    He does character voices well.


    Any additional comments?

    I saw some bad reviews and did not expect much. Not sure what drove others away from the book, but I enjoyed it. Certainly, it was a better listen than Jupiter's bones, in my opinion.

    Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Based on original material and previously unavailable documents, this acclaimed book is the definitive biography of the man considered by many to be the founding father of modern electrical technology.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    abridged would have been much less painful


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure, but this will be put away unfinished.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Prebble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never listened to him before. His voice and style got me through the first few chapters, but there is a limit to how much a reader can make up for bad text.


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

    So much of the book was spent on scientific detail rather than Tesla's life. I know it would be hard to separate the two completely, but it is difficult to listen to so much detail.


    Any additional comments?

    In fairness, this is outside my normal listen. However, I am often happily surprised by books that are out of my normal range. This was a very unhappy surprise. At least itt was on sale.

    Detective Peter Decker of the LAPD is stunned when he gets the report. Someone has shattered the sanctuary of a remote yeshiva community in the California hills with an unimaginable crime. One of the women was brutally raped as she returned from the mikvah, the bathhouse where the cleansing ritual is performed.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend the book. The characters were intriguing. While it didn't strike me as a 5 star book, it seems like a very promising series.


    Which character – as performed by Mitchell Greenberg – was your favorite?

    I thought that Mitchell Greenburg did a great job as a reader. I like Decker's voice the best, which is good as he is the primary character.
