    It was a crime so brutal, it changed the lives of even the most hardened homicide cops. The Haas family murders left a scar on the community nothing can erase, but everyone agrees that convicting the killer, Karl Dahl, is a start. Only Judge Carey Moore seems to be standing in the way. Her ruling that Dahl's prior criminal record is inadmissible raises a public outcry, and puts the judge in grave danger.

    "Great Book/Poor Reader"
    Overall

    I loved this book, but the reader is distracting with his unusual pauses, making every character sound a little cognitively deficient. Keep with Scott Brick for the next one.

    The U.S. Speaker of the House is assassinated in a terrifyingly precise execution in the heart of Washington, D.C. In a quieter corner of the nation's capital, the rare book room of the Library of Congress, a reclusive, wealthy scholar drops dead under mysterious circumstances that leave no clues. Following on the heels of the natural death of the Speaker of the House, the city and the nation begin to tremble.

    Marc Swanson says: "Difficult to listen to!!!"
    "Narration"
    Overall

    Please go back to Jonathan Davis for narration. He gave the characters dignity and personality. This narrator makes the Camel Club sound like losers rather than the unique characters they are. The story is good but so much is lost in the telling.

    This is the story of two sisters, Mary and Grace. As small children, growing up at their property called Abyssinia, they played with their dolls' house together, side by side, always. Grace loved Mary, and Mary loved Grace. But inseparable bonds in life can be unexpectedly shattered. When this happens to Grace, she is plunged into a dark and mesmerizing world, a world full of bells and the ringing sky, of odd little children, strange events, and frighteningly bizarre grown-ups.

    Susan B. says: "I felt cheated, too."

    Overall

    The publisher's summary does not seem to be about the book I heard. I agree with Rahul. I just wish I had read that review before I bought the book. What a waste.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    "The Da Vinci Code"
    Overall

    Friend who've read the book, rather than listening, found it fascinating. I found the accents distracting and the story poorly developed. I suspect the abridgement is at fault, as well as the narrator.
