    Within the pages of very rare books, some centuries old, lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell’s unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes - and sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Key has reappeared on the black market.

    Valerie says: "Copper Beach- ok story (Paranormal but not arcane)"

    In Ava’s dreams, her son, Noah, looks just the way she remembers him: a sweet two-year-old in rolled-up jeans and a red sweatshirt. When Ava wakes, the agonizing truth hits her all over again. Noah went missing two years ago, and his body has never been found. Almost everyone, including Ava’s semi-estranged husband, Wyatt, assumes the boy drowned after falling off the dock near their Church Island home. Ava has spent most of the past two years in and out of Seattle mental institutions, shattered by grief and unable to recall the details of Noah’s disappearance.

    Would you consider the audio edition of You Don't Want to Know to be better than the print version?

    I would have put down a paper version after the first two chapters, but kept listening wondering why is this happening to them.


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

    Yes , all very well done,.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Janels says: "Evanovich, no longer trite--entertaining romp"

    What could Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I really liked Janet Evonovichs other books, but this one felt like I was watching reuns of the tv show" leverage". Dissapointing in a lack of originality. I was also hoping for a supernatural twist.


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

    Good character differentiation.


    Was The Heist worth the listening time?

    Sure ok

    Just when everything at the Poor Relation Hotel seems to be running smoothly, Sir Philip brings in another poor relation, Mrs. Budge. When Sir Philip presents his paramour, Lady Fortescue swears great oaths and says the woman is probably related to half the costermongers in London and certainly does not possess one rich relative. Mrs. Budge does nothing but eat all day and refused to do any work around the hotel. Worst of all, Miss Tonks seems to be taking the romance between Sir Philip and Mrs. Budge quite hard.

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    What disappointed you about John Dies at the End?

    this book was a complation or random impossible unfinished stories with no central train of thought. I think the author and publisher must have been on drugs.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    nothing by this author ever again


    How could the performance have been better?

    possibly a story line


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from John Dies at the End?

    the whole thing


    Any additional comments?
