    Tandy Angel may have played the hero when she solved the case of her magnificently wealthy parents' mysterious deaths, but she isn't done yet. Her brother, Matthew, stands trial for homicide, young girls are found murdered all around New York's Upper West side, and Tandy is determined to use her piercing intellect to get to the bottom of both cases. But the biggest mystery of all may be what actually happened to James Rampling, the handsome son of a family enemy, whom Tandy fell in love and ran away with - though most of her memories of the affair are disturbingly absent....

    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro and/or Emma Galvin?

    Yes, their Murder Club books are great.


    Has Confessions: The Private School Murders turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

    The narrator was not the problem with this book. It was the book itself.


    What character would you cut from Confessions: The Private School Murders?

    Don't think that any one character was the problem; it was how the entire book was put together.


    Any additional comments?

    I was stunned that this book was so bad when the Murder Club books have been so very good.

    At 12, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At 24, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him. Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful.But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills.

    James says: "How much disbelief are we expected to suspend?"
    "A SLOW START"

    Think you have to give these guys a little room to get another series started... wasn't all that bad just not a super fun read as their other books are...

    In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

    Little Bear, a beautiful and gifted cave artist, descends into the depths of the Great Cave, guided by the most powerful shaman of her tribe, the People of the Bear Mother. There, she is to paint a new image portraying her people's most significant myth. But before she may enter the deepest chambers of the awesome cave, she must be initiated as a shaman herself.

    Overall

    Does not even come close to Jean Auel's classic, Clan of the Cave Bear. Terrible comparison... I bought it and would give it back if it was possible!
    Long, laborious and boring. It is not about the people of the Bear Mother; it is about one person going thru primitive rights.

    The Roses met at an auction on Cape Cod. Oliver had just bought a Staffordshire figurine-one of a pair-but Barbara outbid him for its mate. The figurines belonged together, and so did the Roses. Now the two objets d'art sat together on a shelf in the Roses' home-symbols of the passion their owners shared. A passion that united them and now was about to tear them apart.

    "Shallow and Boring.............."

    It is very hard to believe this book is an audible.com selection. Have never heard a more boring shallow book and I have an audible library of more than 600 books!

    The body of a small-time drug dealer is washed up in Belmont Harbor among the yachts of Chicago's wealthy class, and a woman hires Paul Whelan to investigate her husband's death. His death has been called a suicide, yet he also knew the dead dealer. Whelan's investigation takes him along Chicago's beautiful lakefront into the haunts of the well-heeled. He soon finds someone is stalking him.

    Thought the story was pretty good; but did not care for the reader at all. Very loud inhale sounds all the way through the story making it sound like the reader was always short of breath.

    A body has been found on the overlook near Mulholland Drive. The victim, identified as Dr. Stanley Kent, has two bullet holes in the back of his head, from what looks like an execution-style shooting. LAPD detective Harry Bosch is called out to investigate. As soon as Bosch begins retracing Dr. Kent's steps, contradictions emerge. While Kent doesn't seem to have had ties to organized crime, he did have access to dangerous radioactive substances from just about every hospital in Los Angeles County.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "Good thriller"

    Another excellent work by Connolly

    The story was tedious at times and the reader had to be chewing gum... really very irritating
