    Immediately after hearing these words, uttered to her by an old Romanian woman bleeding to death in the street, detective Eve Dallas begins to notice that her latest case has come with a number of interesting side-effects: visions of the deceased, instant familiarity with rooms she’s never seen before, and fluency in Russian.

    Yuriko says: "A fun addition to the series"
    "Only one problem..."
    Overall

    There is only one problem with this book and that is, it is too short. Once again J.D. Robb keeps your attention with excitement. She does not fail to keep all the characters interesting and involved. A fun read or listen in this case!!

    When college kids hiking near an abandoned military industrial complex in West Virginia mysteriously disappear, special agent Janet Carter - earnest, honest, and fed up with the stifling chauvinistic environment at the Roanoke FBI headquarters - is called in to investigate. Unfortunately, there are no leads - it's as if the three just vanished into thin air.

    The Statfire Breeze steams its way north toward the Gulf of Alaska, buffeted by crisp sea winds blowing down from the Arctic. Those on board are seeking peace, relaxation, adventure, escape. But there is no escape here in this place of unspoiled natural majesty. Because terror strolls the decks even in the brilliant light of day...and death is a conspicuous, unwelcome passenger. And a former Seattle policeman, a damaged homicide detective who has come to heal from fresh, stinging wounds...

    I have listened to all 14 previous JP Beaumont novels. They were great!! I could NOT believe the disappointment (to put it mildly), I felt when I began to listen to this horrific tragedy. Who ever decided to change narrators and not offer the unabridged version should be shot!!!! This was disgusting!!! The narrator was horrible not too mention not even close to Gene Engene as JP Beaumont. I am contacting Audible for a refund and the author to find out who is responsible for such a devastating decision. Don't waste your money or a credit you will be sorry.

    A woman is cruelly cut down in a remote corner of Arizona, killed on her nineteenth wedding anniversary by a drunk motorist. A year later, the driver himself dies badly, and all suspicions point to the slain woman's still-grieving husband as his murderer. But the truth is rarely black and white in the long Southwestern shadows, and one law officer is not rushing to condemn the tragic widower so quickly - Joanna Brady, sheriff of Cochise County.

    Story

    Why is it the publisher has to ruin a perfectly good series by not only changing the narrator mid stream but changing to a narrator that was worse than the last.

    As an avid, borderline obsessive audio book listener, the narration is just as important as the story itself in my opinion. It took me awhile to get past the nasal Hillary Huber, but she established herself as the voice of Joanna Brady.

    Fortunately if the author is good, you can most times overlook bad narration, but it is not enjoyable. This is the case with C.J. Critt. Terrible inflections and a much too old of a voice for Joanna. Not to mention not very good with continuity.

    Will probably move pass the books she has narrated in this series and try the next narrator.

Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Catch Me to be better than the print version?

    I love listening to Kirsten Potter she does such a fabulous job with Lisa's work. I did not read the printed version so I couldn't answer that. The only thing I can say is Lisa's writing is soooooo amazing I am sure it would be just as good.


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

    As usual with all of Lisa's books, it most certainly did!! I could not stop listening. It is so sad when the book comes to an end, you just want it to go on forever. In my opinion no one compares to Lisa Gardner. She has a way of putting you right there and keeping you there. I loved everything about this book!


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

    Yes, she is fantastic. The fact that she is reading for Lisa makes it even better!


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

    Hard to say, there were several. It amazes me that her books just keep getting better and better. How does she do it?


    Any additional comments?

    Please do not make us wait too long for another book!!!

    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....

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure it was boring


    What could Patricia Cornwell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It seems Patricia has lost her touch. Kay Scarpetta has become droll and irritating. Her ego is borderline obnoxious and she has no personality. I have read all of her books and this one is the worst. The story line did not even come close to keeping my interest. I started and stopped the book on several occasions. Patricia will have to give Kay an entire new make-over and her plots will have to be a little more thrilling for me to read another one of her books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Burton’s performances?

    I have not problem with Kate's performance. She is a great narrator. It was what she had to work with that I had a problem with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Red Mist?

    Most of them


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get my money back?

    As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds. In these stories, the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

    What made the experience of listening to In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain the most enjoyable?

    The fact that the original narrators for each character read their parts


    What other book might you compare In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain to and why?

    There is none other that I am aware of. It is very unique and took a lot of guts to pull this off


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All the narrators were fantastic as they are the original for the characters


    Who was the most memorable character of In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain and why?

    That would be impossible to say because I am a fan of all three and the way she was able to actually get them to talk to her was truly inventive. All three stories are very clever.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the concept as much as the actual stories. I give a lot of credit to M. J. for capturing the true likeness of all three characters!! Job well done!!
