    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    Tom says: "Is Connelly the Best Crime Writer Or What?"
    "Good Read"
    Overall

    Story line was interesting and surprising all the way through.

    When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger.

    Lisa says: "Not the same read"
    "Cross takes a dive"
    Overall

    As much as I enjoy the Dr. Cross series, I have to say this book did not live up to expectations. I mean - good grief, why would the author take a seemingly intelligent character and dumb him down? Cross has no knowledge of or authority in Nigeria, but travels there unprepared and acts indignant when he receives no cooperation. Duh! Then there is the continual "beating up" of Dr. Cross which is really tiresome. Not the author's best work.

  • Paradise Lost

    Story
    (60)

    In words remarkable for their richness of rhythm and imagery, Milton tells the story of man's creation, fall, and redemption, "to justify the ways of God to men". Here, unabridged, and told with exceptional sensitivity and power by Anton Lesser, is the plight of Adam and Eve, the ambition and vengefulness of Satan and his cohorts.

    David says: "Great Epic Poem Narrated Well"
    "Waste of a credit"
    Overall

    You have to love old English to bother listening. Definitely not entertaining or informative.

    Dan "Spider" Shepherd is used to putting his life on the line. It goes with the turf when you're an undercover cop. Now working for the Serious Organised Crime Agency, Shepherd is pitting his wits against the toughest criminals in the country. But when the man who once saved his life is kidnapped in the badlands of Iraq, Shepherd has to decide whether his loyalties lie with his country, his career, or his friend.

    Overall

    The narrator's breathing is so loud through his nostrils that it is distracting from the story. Could not finish the book.
