    Story
    (8626)

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Loved this entire series!"
    Overall

    So very sad this is the last book. It has left me wanting more of Salander, Bloomquist, and Berger.

    Jolie Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge's bed and breakfast at the Jersey shore, taking her cat, Jazz, and joining Madge's pair of prune-eating dogs. Jolie does not view this as a retreat, just a smart change. She had no idea her life was about to get even more complicated. Jolie is reestablishing friendships with Scoobie and Ramona, dodging low-level wise guy Pedone, and (oops!) finding a dead body.

    What made the experience of listening to Judgment Call the most enjoyable?

    Good story.


    What didn’t you like about Hillary Huber’s performance?

    Her voice seemed too 'cigarette and whiskey'.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, the voice was distracting to me.


    Any additional comments?

    I love all of J A Jance, but will watch who the narrators are in the future!

    Three time-traveling historians are visiting World War II England: Michael Davies, intent on observing heroism during the Miracle of Dunkirk; Merope Ward, studying children evacuated from London; and Polly Churchill, posing as a shopgirl in the middle of the Blitz. But when the three become unexpectedly trapped in 1940, they struggle not only to find their way home but to survive as Hitler's bombers attempt to pummel London into submission.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Rescued by the second half"
    "ok book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the story line, but became frustrated with the constant repititions of the characters situations and thoughts. It also was hard to follow.
