    No matter what you heard or thought about the movie version of Strip Tease, forget it. Film simply can’t catch the layers of humor, satire, and imagination that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Carl Hiaasen creates in each of his novels.

    If you could sum up Strip Tease in three words, what would they be?

    This book was okay. Story line was predictable. Characters were okay, but many were easy to dislike.
    Parts of it were a little too graphic for my taste.


    What could Carl Hiaasen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    don't know - first time read for Carl Hiaasen. May or may not try another book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Left out the truly graphic gruesome details.


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

    Stupid Congressman.

    Story
    (892)

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    Would you try another book from Patricia Cornwell and/or Kate Burton?

    This book continued the story to Port Mortuary but really used way too many words.
    There was so much description that it was hard to stay tuned in to the story.


    Would you recommend Red Mist to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if you want to continue the series story.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was okay.


    Do you think Red Mist needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes.

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    Terry says: "once again angry"
    "Typical Kay Scarpetta story."

    What did you love best about Port Mortuary?

    I liked following these characters. I've read this entire series so far. Kay has become more cynical and hard as the years have passed.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Would like to see Kay be happy at some point in her life and career.

    Grandma Sal's Soup-to-Nuts Cooking Challenge is coming to town, and Skye Denison is entering. And though she can't solve the mystery of the perfect mousse, murder is another story. Because a cocky contestant has been found delectably drowned in a chocolate fountain....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book is okay, easy to get through but has too much drama between Mother and Daughter.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Denise Swanson? Why or why not?

    Perhaps. There are other mystery writers I prefer.


    What three words best describe Christine Leto’s performance?

    I was not crazy about her voice.


    Was Murder of a Chocolate-Covered Cherry worth the listening time?

    Yes because I spend a lot of time in my car and like to listen to audio books to pass the time.
