    Charlie Howard isn’t only a part-time crime writer and part-time thief; he’s also a magician. For his next trick, he’ll relieve Josh Masters, the famous illusionist vying for the affections of Charlie’s friend Victoria, of $60,000 in casino chips stashed in his hotel safe. Revenge would be sweet - if there weren’t a dead redhead floating in Masters’ bathtub and if Masters hadn’t just disappeared in a puff of smoke after cheating at roulette. Convinced that Charlie was in on the scam, the casino’s owners give him an impossible mission....

    Would you listen to The Good Thief's Guide to Vegas again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again.... It's an easy listen and the narration is perfect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the main character's perseverance. He just never gives up on his writing or his "side" occupation. His personality moves the story forward. Each city is a supporting character to Charlie.


    What about Simon Vance???s performance did you like?

    Simon Vance has a great voice for this character.... not too stuffy, not too sophisticated. He sounds like a witty friend. His voice for female characters is also very good. The female voices do not sound helpless but rather they compliment the main character well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The "real" guidebook to where you want to go.


    Any additional comments?

    When are the next books coming out? I can't wait. My husband and I enjoy this series so much.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Ken Follett
    • Narrated By John Lee

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."
    "Great story! Immediately engaging!"

    Would you listen to The Pillars of the Earth again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again. The first few paragraphs grabbed me and pulled me into the story. I started to care about the characters and what was happening to them. In my opinion, this is the mark of a great story.


    What about John Lee???s performance did you like?

    Another thing that a great book into a great audiobook is the narration.... and John Lee's performance is excellent! His portrayal of each character helps me as the reader to visualize them; to give life to the entire story.


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely recommend this audiobook!
