    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, her mentor Ranger, and a host of other - ahem - interesting characters set out to find a missing 7-year-old girl. The search becomes a race among Stephanie's posse, the True Blue Bonds Agency, and the crew of one very scary man named Eddie Abruzzi. Did we mention there's also a killer rabbit on the loose? The world of Stephanie Plum has never been wilder!

    Overall

    I found myself laughing at some of the most unususal places. The action would be at a peak and the suspense just killing me and the characters would say or do something that made me burst out in laughter. I loved it.

  • Death du Jour: A Temperance Brennan Novel, Book 2

    Dr. Temperance Brennan, Forensic Anthropologist for the Province of Quebec, digs for a corpse where Sister Elisabeth Nicolet, dead for over a century and now a candidate for sainthood, should be lying in her grave. A strange, small coffin, buried in the recesses of a decaying church, holds the first clue to the cloistered nun's fate. The puzzle surrounding Sister Elisabeth Nicolet's life and death provides a welcome contrast to discoveries at a burning chalet, where scorched and twisted bodies await Tempe's professional expertise.

    What made the experience of listening to Death du Jour the most enjoyable?

    Although I liked the story, Bonnie Hurren managed to mispronounce at least 100- words. That is always so distracting for me.


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

    sometimes it kept me on the edge of my seat and at others it was a yawn and others it was all the suspense I could handle.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bonnie Hurren?

    Lorelie King

    Story
    (448)

    Agent Pendergast has become one of crime fiction's most endearing characters. His greatest enemy is one who has stalked him all of his life, his cunning and diabolical brother Diogenes. And Diogenes has thrown down the gauntlet. Now, several of the people closest to Pendergast are viciously murdered, and Pendergast is framed for the deeds. On the run from federal authorities, with only the help of his old friend NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta, Pendergast must stop his brother.

    M. M. Robinson says: "Excellent read/listen!"
    "Unbelievable"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the plot line, with its interesting twists and turns but it was a hard listen. The arrogance of Agent Pendergast was irritating. He and his evil brother are supposed to be geniuses yet they both act in stupid ways. The narration is also irritating, especially Scott's characature of Pendergast. If I were D'Agosta, I would have walked away from his so called friend, Pendergast. I should have gotten the abridged version. That might have been a bit less tedious.

    After losing one of its own, Lindsay Boxer and the Women's Murder Club make a courageous return for their fourth and most chilling case ever, one that could easily be their last. A young girl is killed in crossfire after a routine arrest goes terribly wrong, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer has to defend herself against a charge of police brutality. In a landmark trial that transfixes the nation, Lindsay fights to save her career and her sanity.

    Wende says: "Nice addition to series..."
    "More fireworks"
    Overall

    The story grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me enthralled to the last. I clued into the emotional turmoil of Lindsay Boxer, feeling the fears and the joy. Lindsay managed to disprove the killer's motto "Nobody Cares." She cares. Excellent read.
