    Last week they invaded Manhattan. This week they will destroy the world. The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading and soon will envelop the globe. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather - head of the Centers for Disease Control's team - leads a band out to stop these bloodthirsty monsters. But it may be too late.

    "Disappointing Sequel"
    Overall

    Loved the 1st audiobook. I could not wait to listen to the second installment in the trilogy. WOW, what a disappointment. The production of "The Strain" was riveting - from the reader to the storyline to the musical accompaniment\sound effects... In fact, I listened to it more than once. Sadly, "The Fall" was a far cry from the 1st installment's quality. I cannot believe that there was such a disparity in value. I actually found myself tuning most of it out. What a terrible reader. Skip it.

    In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of Madison, a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters.

    Overall

    Slow moving. What is worse, what could have been a witty style became redundant to the point of being ridiculous. A pretty clever concept, telling a mystery through the eyes of the P.I.'s dog, fell short on its execution. Some of the nuances of the book soon evolved into something as subtle as a ten ton brick. One quarter of the book was comprised of the dog repeating his quirky perspective (i.e. certain smell descriptions, thoughts about is owner\partner, and the like). Skip it, someone else will surely come along and do it better.

    The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather have stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stick-up men who've spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system.

    Tony B. says: "Another winner for Davenport fans"
    "HORRIBLE NARRATION"
    Overall

    I had to restart the 1st hr. Trying to keep track of the charaters and the plotline is challenging when EVERY charater sounds exactly the same. Very frustrating, I eventually quit trying. I did purchase at the discounted rate and I still wish I could get my $$$ back. Don't bother.

    All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member - a man trapped in a hell of his own.

    Amazon Customer says: "Keep Trudging..."
    "Unwise to develop the plotline so slowly"
    Overall

    This was the first audiobook I have not bothered to finish, I quit roughly an 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. into listening. DON'T waste your time or money. Intriguing concept that was poorly executed.

    Things are finally looking up for defense attorney Mickey Haller. After two years of wrong turns, Haller is back in the courtroom. When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Haller inherits his biggest case yet: the defense of Walter Elliott, a prominent studio executive accused of murdering his wife and her lover. But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent's killer may be coming for him next.

    Jeff says: "Five Star Book; Three Star Narration"

    Overall

    Predictable. Trite. Clich?. The reader was HORRIBLE and the cheesy music did nothing to improve matters. I was disappointed right from the start and my listening experience never improved.
