    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes absolutely, the three main characters though bumbling through the court proceedings were funny ....


    What did you like best about this story?

    I fell in love with the court proceedings and how Dennis Boutsikaris delivered David's court appearance.... it made me wish that I should have taken my father's advice and be a lawyer. (He is one of course)


    What about Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance did you like?

    Dennis Boutikaris MADE listening good... I love his performance in this book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When David won his first case

    The system was simple. Everyone understood it. Books were for burning, along with the houses in which they were hidden. Guy Montag was a fireman whose job it was to start fires, and he enjoyed his job. He had been a fireman for 10 years, and never questioned the pleasure of the midnight runs, nor the joy of watching pages consumed by flames. He never questioned anything, until he met a 17-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid, and a professor who told him of a future in which people could think. Guy Montag suddenly realized what he had to do.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fahrenheit 451 to be better than the print version?

    Yes absolutely!!! the reason why I bought the audio I had a hard time following the print... I originally bought it because it was part of my daughter's (sophomore year high school) summer reading ... I thought that both of us can read together and discuss the book itself; needless to say it brought us closer together as well as I learned a lot from this book... I urge parents to read this.


    What other book might you compare Fahrenheit 451 to and why?

    There is no comparison to the new books now . Maybe the Great Gatsby or Wundering Heights.


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Hurt – was your favorite?

    I loved all the character that Christopher Hurt has performed... He is a great storyteller. Wish James Patterson would hire him lol for the Cross and Bennett Books


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

    Absolutely... This book has made me explain to my daughter the importance of making sure that Censorship should not be allowed in a free country and it is our as well as her peers to keep an open dialog and open their minds. How knowledge is power

    Would you listen to Kill Me If You Can again? Why?

    I listened to this book just as much as I have listened to Guilty Wives. OMG the ending was awesome and hoping there will be series attached to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twist and turn on the storyline. Characters that I thought were just shadows or unimportant were surprisingly..... YOU just have to read the book ... there were too many twists and turns I was on pins and needles... I had to stop my SUV at one point in the parkway because I got too excited and started talking to my IPHONE lol....


    What about Jeff Woodman and Jason Culp ’s performance did you like?

    They were perfect...


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

    OMG Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Patterson as I have said earlier would make a series on the Ghost because the book was funny, exciting .....

    If you could sum up Women's Murder Club Box Set, Volume 2 in three words, what would they be?

    I love the series. The friendship of the girls were amazing making me wish I have a circle of friends that I go out drinking out and have a great time. Don't get me wrong I love my friends but they are not as fun as these girls.


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

    YES... I love all three books.. I love the series just as I love the Bennett, Alex Cross


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

    It was so so ... Her voice was annoying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Its just her voice ... it was annoying. I guess because I love LaVoys performance with the Guilty Wives and 11th hour


    Any additional comments?

    Except for the narrator I love this book. Detective needs to learn to trust Joe lol

    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.

    Betsy says: "Ditto - Don't waste your credit."
    "Powerful book for Women!!!!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Guilty Wives again? Why?

    I have listened to Guilty wives at least 20 time... January LaVoy was great at reading and depicting the cruel Lucy and Sabin.... her french accent was spot on.... I love how she depicted Abbey as a strong, highly moraled woman trying to keep her sanity together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abbie Elliot was my favorite because she was depicted as a strong and clever woman... she never gave up hope and was never bullied. I like Lucy and Sabin as well they were depicted as ugly, corrupt and just plain nasty people. Lynnette depicted as the helpful sweet co-prisoner of Abbey and had helped Abbey through her ordeal while in prison.


    What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

    This is the first time I have heard January Lavoy and as of right now I am trying to find books that she has performed on. The one reason I love this book was her performance... the way she depicted Abbie's strength; quick wit or quick witted remarks towards the villains was at times hilarious and I found myself clapping and crying at the same time. I hope she reads more for James Patterson ... As a matter of fact i have just finished the 11th Hour by James Patterson and I loved her performance there as well...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were two events: the death of Lynette and the Wendie as well as when Abbie finally was able to escape prison... I was on pin and needles listening to her when Abbie was on the last gate and the guard asked her about her bandage. (thinking it was the evil Lucy)...


    Any additional comments?

    Yes as I have said earlier I hope January LaVoy will read more of the James Patterson books (Women's murder club; etc) because I just love listening to her....

    I would highly recommend this book to everyone .... it has drama, sexiness and hopefully they make this into a movie would love how Abbie and Ingersoll have a series like Alex Cross and the Bennett series.
