    There's a twisted serial killer stalking the streets of New York City, dealing his own perverse version of justice. He kills swiftly and silently, leaving his calling card: a red "J" on the bodies of his prey. His victims have one thing in common: they've all been jurors in the city's most infamous cases; cases in which the killer was found "not guilty". Overnight, the Justice Killer has the city in a stranglehold. And there's only one man who has a shot at finding him.

    Overall

    I enjoyed this one on a long trip. It was interesting, but not too fast to keep up with while driving. I'm definitely starting to enjoy this author more and more with each book of his I read/listen to.

    A young boy's body is washed from the river and forensic examination reveals he has been murdered. The accidental discovery that a convicted paedophile lives in the nearby village leads to police interest in his activities, and when five decaying bodies are found in his garden, he is arrested.

    Lia says: "Geat listen"
    "Rambling"
    Overall

    This book rambles, on and on and on... It takes forever to even get started on the actual story. The writer spends too much time telling what each character is thinking, normally not having a thing to do with the story.

    Once it got to the story line, it was a decent plot. I just wish there had been more to it. I found myself wanting to fast forward through a lot of the 1st half of the book to get to the actual story.

    It flip-flops back and forth between several scenes so if you don't have time to listen to large portions of it at the same time you tend to get lost.

    When a serial murderer dubbed "The Spare Change Killer" by the Boston press surfaces after three decades in hiding, the police immediately seek out the cop, now retired, who headed the original task force: Phil Randall. As a sharp-eyed investigator and a doting parent, Phil calls on his daughter, Sunny, to help catch the criminal who eluded him so many years before.

    "Narrator Disappointing"
    Overall

    This would probably be a good book, but this narrator ruined it for me. You could predict the inflections of her voice to the point of it being a drone. The story line was really good but I couldn't pay attention to the story because the reader was driving me nuts with her voice. She put all her inflection at the end of each sentence and did they all have to end with the word "said" in such a flat monotone? If you want this one, get it in paperback and read it yourself. I've never had to give a bad rating on here, but I think you will be very distracted by the narrator's voice and lack of motivation to enjoy this book.

    PECCAVI. The Latin word is scrawled in blood at the scene of a young woman's brutal murder: I HAVE SINNED. It's a chilling Christmas greeting for Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli, who swiftly link the victim to controversial celebrity psychiatrist Joyce O'Donnell, Jane's professional nemesis and member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

    I always enjoy this series of books and wasn't disappointed here either. It was interesting enough to keep me going with the unabridged version because there were so many details and events. It's one I will keep in my library to listen to again later.

    Ten years ago in California, Daniel Pell, a self-styled Charles Manson, was sentenced to life in prison for murdering an entire family: husband, wife, and two children, plus one of his young male followers. He is brought to Salinas, California, to interview with Kathryn Dance after he is implicated in yet another killing. Things go terribly wrong during an interview break, and Pell escapes, intent on killing again.

    Paige says: "A decent listen"
    "Anything But Sleeping"
    Overall

    Would you expect anything but a good book from Deaver? Of course not, and again he did not disappoint. The characters were varied and interesting each on their own. The ending was a pleasant surprise because just when you think you KNOW what is going to happen... well you listen and figure it out.

    FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail.

    "twisted"
    Overall

    Twisted, but in a nice way. It took a minute to catch on to what was happening, but then it was all a good time. The ending was excellent and a complete suprise which is hard to find most of the time.

    Detective Briony Williams is a rookie appointed to an all-male team investigating a bizarre murder at an anatomy college in Bloomsbury. Her superiors constantly make her feel left out. But a killer obsessed with following Jack the Ripper soon changes that. The killer is a practiced anatomist with a theatrical streak. He arranges his victims bodies in cruel parodies of famous satirical engravings by Hogarth. As the summer and the swinging '60s wind to a terrible climax, this multi-layered thriller brings the startling and terrible strands of the story together.

    Rose says: "England Swings Like a Pendulem Do"
    "Past VS Present"
    Overall

    Most books in this field use either "today" or a setting in the future. This one stepped back in time. I was leery about it when I first realized what it was, but by the end I was caught up and couldn't figure out the killer. The ending was a surprise and that's always a plus when reading a mystery. Part of the challenge is seeing if you can figure out who the real bad guy is before the author tells you. On this one I didn't even come close.

    The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    D says: "I love this series"
    "Twisted as Ever"
    Overall

    This was an older one I missed and I had to block out a few things in the series that I knew had happened, but that was nothing major.

    Once again Davenport is chasing the skirts all over town and catching the bad guys. The thing is he does it with such style you can't help but like it. He gets the bad guy and his sense of justice is a wonderful ending that makes you want to pat him on the back and ask "why doesn't that happen more often" when you see some of the scum making the news these days.

    The cloistered grounds of the convent have traditionally represented a place of faith and peace. Now, that peace is shattered as two nuns are found, one dead, one mortally wounded. The killings appear to be without motive, without an obvious suspect, and are further complicated by the murder and mutilation of a third woman. Together, medical examiner Maura Isles and intense, moody homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters.

    Margaret says: "Outstanding"
    "Great Read"
    Overall

    Another good one for Tess. I enjoyed all the twists and turns of the plot. She holds Rizzoli to character. No matter what is going on in her personal life she still finds time to get a jab in at even the most innocent seeming villian. No one goes unpunished in some way with her and that's satisfying. Some of her points make you want to say "you go girl".
    This is a great book and you can't go wrong with it.
