    If you could sum up The Dancing Cowboy in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, lighthearted, cute


    What other book might you compare The Dancing Cowboy to and why?

    Any Hank book. Good continuity from one to the next.


    What does John R. Erickson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings his characters to life. Otherwise the books are just... books. His audiobooks have soul.

    For the first time in unabridged audio! A small Kansas town has turned into a killing ground. Is it a serial killer, a man with the need to destroy? Or is it a darker force, a curse upon the land? Amid golden cornfields, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers evil in the blood of America's heart.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It seemed supernatural at first (eyeroll) because I couldn't see how it could be otherwise. Some of the story had a taste of the supernatural but not enough to ruin it. And the perpetrator was very real and his/her story, though horrifying and sad, plausible.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I can't say much, cause I don't want to ruin the story, but the lengths that people will go to in the name of pride and love, is stunning and sickening; as bad as the events get in this work of fiction, reality is sometimes worse.


    Any additional comments?

    As a parent, I find parts of this story heart-wrenching and still think about this book regularly, as in "what if?". Most books I read or listen to are forgotten as soon as I finish them.

    .Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Deephaven, an entire family has been killed - husband, wife, two daughters, dogs. There’s something about the scene that pokes at Lucas’s cop instincts - it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he’s seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn’t seem to fit.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Stolen Prey to be better than the print version?

    Any book would be improved by Richard Ferrone. But the book stands on its own.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is a funny little subplot weaves its way thru an intense, gory story. Keeps things moving and lightens the mood.


    Any additional comments?

    Start here if you wish, but don't miss Sanford's previous Davenport books! Great plots, character development, etc every single time.

    A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

    Would you listen to Change Anything again? Why?

    Great how it is.


    Any additional comments?

    This book shows how we can fight battles with with tangible tools and teaches how to use them. Willpower is only a nebulous theory that I can't quite get hold of. Now I know why.
