    After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey Street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career - except that she wasn't a model.

    "Wow! This series is amazing. One of the best!"

    Would you listen to Portrait in Death again? Why?

    There are so many things happening at once. Roarke's return to his past in Ireland, Eve's big case, and more development of minor characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Portrait in Death?

    The closing in on the murderer at the end was riveting and suspenseful. I found myself trying to help Eve and crew get to the scene in time.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the climax of the case being solved, but my favorite scene was the vulnerability shown in Roarke as he stood in the morning mist in Ireland. Eve drops out of the sky in one of his copters to get to him.


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

    I had to cry during the touching farm house scene in Ireland.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my favorites so far.

    It's April, 1988, a month before Kinsey Millhone's 38th birthday, and she's alone in her office doing paperwork when a young man arrives unannounced. He has a preppy air about him and looks as if he'd be carded if he tried to buy booze, but Michael Sutton is 27, an unemployed college dropout. Twenty-one years earlier, a four-year-old girl disappeared, and a recent reference to her kidnapping has triggered a flood of memories.

    Would you consider the audio edition of U Is for Undertow to be better than the print version?

    I have listened to the entire series, so I now enjoy hearing the narrator in this series.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    In the first few books of the series I wasn't as impressed, but the plots have become more complex as the series has progressed. I couldn't figure out where the side stories were headed in the beginning, but they are masterfully tied together at the conclusion.


    Which character – as performed by Judy Kaye – was your favorite?

    Kinsey and Henry continue to be my favorite characters in the series.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The tangled web we weave.....

  • Gone Tomorrow: A Jack Reacher Novel

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Would you listen to Gone Tomorrow again? Why?

    I love the extra sarcastic humor added to Reacher's character. He has just the right dig for the "bad guys."


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Reacher is always in the thick of things. He is always thinking, assessing and moving to the next tense moment.


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

    Dick Hill has nailed the Jack Reacher character, and makes new characters believable as well.
