    A series of horrifying events occur in quick succession in the same upscale L.A. neighborhood. A backyard renovation unearths an infant's body, buried 60 years ago. And soon thereafter in a nearby park, another disturbingly bizarre discovery is made not far from the body of a young woman shot in the head. Helping LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis to link these eerie incidents is brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware. But even the good doctor's vast experience with matters both clinical and criminal might not be enough.

    Would you listen to Guilt again? Why?

    I really enjoy the author's use of words. It pleases my ear and makes me smile. The descriptions of the places and the way the characters are developed have great appeal. I went back and replayed several chapters when I first listened to the audiobook, and will undoubtedly listen to the whole thing again.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot developed nicely and kept me interested and entertained, which is why I finished it in two days. Actually I would have done it more quickly, but forced myself to slow down as I knew I would be disappointed when the book was finished.


    Have you listened to any of John Rubinstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Love Rubenstein's narration - they really make these books come alive. The individual character voices are always recognizable, and word flow and timing are excellent. Rubenstein's narration is one of the things I most enjoy about the Alex Delaware novels, and when I see that a new book is out, that's the first thing I check.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read all the Alex Delaware books and this was one of my favorites.

    >Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over when she's leaving a birthday party Goldy has catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in. But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking. When a colleague - a woman who resembles Goldy - is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense to be better than the print version?

    I'd like to try the other Diane Mott Davidson books, but will stick with the print editions.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The food connection was interesting, and I enjoyed the way it was woven into the plot.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Barbara Rosenblat’s performances?

    I don't care for Barbara Rosenblat, but this is her worse performance by far. Doubt that I will listen to another one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Only extreme reaction was to the narration. The book itself seemed quite good.


    Any additional comments?

    I've purchased many Audible books in the past, but was extremely disappointed in this one.
