    From Atlanta's wealthiest suburbs to its stark inner-city housing projects, a killer has crossed the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries, too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael's lover before she became his enemy.

    Overall

    This is a great listen. Granted the southern accents were probably a bit overdone but i'm not southern so they were just an annoyance to me. The story itself is on the highest list of my favorites. If you liked Monkeewrench by PJ Tracy or books by Michael Connelly,John Katzenbach and Harlen Coben, this book is for you. I found this book exceeds her Sara Linton and Jeffrey Tolliver series. This was one listen I could not put down. I would recommend this one to anyone who likes a good thorough mystery.

    In Ava’s dreams, her son, Noah, looks just the way she remembers him: a sweet two-year-old in rolled-up jeans and a red sweatshirt. When Ava wakes, the agonizing truth hits her all over again. Noah went missing two years ago, and his body has never been found. Almost everyone, including Ava’s semi-estranged husband, Wyatt, assumes the boy drowned after falling off the dock near their Church Island home. Ava has spent most of the past two years in and out of Seattle mental institutions, shattered by grief and unable to recall the details of Noah’s disappearance.

    What did you like best about this story?

    All the twists and turns. All the red herrings.

    Seventeen-year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban New Jersey family, captain of the lacrosse team, headed off to college next year with all the hopes and dreams her doting parents can pin on her. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months quickly pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst.

    Linda says: "It's Coben at his best!!"
    "VERY DISAPPOINTING"
    Overall

    I have loved all of Harlan Cobens books until this one. This story was so way out there and contrived. Too many characters! Did not know who the main character was until several chapters had gone by. The story itself was unbelievable and convoluted. Hopefully his next book will be better. I guess you cant please everyone all the time and it was my time not to be pleased.

    Three children, running in the woods behind their school, stumble upon a partially buried female body, eyes and mouth glued shut. Close behind the children is their teacher, Anne Navarre, shocked by this discovery and heartbroken as she witnesses the end of their innocence. What she doesn't yet realize is that this will mark the end of innocence for an entire community, as the ties that bind families and friends are tested by secrets uncovered in the wake of a serial killer's escalating activity.

    Excellent read! If you liked Night Sins and Guilty as Sin this is a book for you to read. There really needs to be a sequel and I can't wait for it to come out

    Overall

    I found the first two books of this series very interesting. The characters are all well developed and after a while you feel you know them personally. I cannot agree with the previous reviewer. I would recommend this series to anyone. It is just as good as her Joanna Brady series but with a different type of story line. The characters are unforgetable and I hated to see each book end. I will be listening to book 3 in the series and hope it is just as well written. The reader was excellent.

    Kristin Burns is making her way in New York City. Her photos are being considered at a major Manhattan gallery, she works by day with two wonderful children, and the man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps. But just as everything she's ever wanted is finally within reach, her life changes forever with one murderous nightmare.

    Kathleen says: "Stay Away"
    "Baaaaad"
    Overall

    Are you sure Patterson wrote this book? This was not worth the credit. I'll be more careful in the future before buying his books. This should have been classified as Fantasy/Science Fiction. The book had absolutely nothing good about it.Very disappointing. It shouldn't even have one star!!!

    Ridley Jones is trying to get on with her life when a seemingly mundane act - picking up a few envelopes of prints at a photo lab - puts her at the nexus of a global network of crime. The shadowy figure of a man appears in almost every picture she's taken in the last year, lurking just far enough away to make identification impossible. Now the FBI is at her door, some serious bad guys are following her every move, and the family she once loved and relied on is more distant than ever.

    Pauline Norton says: "AWESOME SEQUEL"

    Overall

    I reread her first book before listening to this one and I'm glad I did because there was a lot to remember. This is a great sequel! I didn't think she'd be able to do it but the story grabs you from beginning to end. If you like greg iles you'll like these two stories. What a fantastic story teller. I can't wait for more from this author in the future.

    As a child, Bobbie Lee found refuge from her lonely life at her best friend's house. Rockhaven was a place of magic, colored by the butterflies that Cincy Jaines' mother, Lenora, studied. Here Bobbie found the mothering she longed for and a friend with whom to share her secrets. Her friendship with Cincy and Lenora was the compass by which she navigated the changes of adolescence. But when the tangled intimacies between them began to unravel, Rockhaven became a place of unspeakable tragedy.

    J. says: "Very Good"
    "narrator too fast"
    Overall

    This could have been a good listen but the narrator spoiled it by talking way too fast. The story itself was very good and I would recommend you read the book if you don't like fast narrators

    Excellent book. Thank God it's unabridged!! I would hate to miss even a little of his wit and humor. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a quick read with lots of laughs.
