    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Edgar Award nominee Robert Crais’ L.A. Requiem is a gritty, harrowing look into the minds of a serial killer and the men determined to stop him. Elvis Cole and former cop Joe Pike have been partners in a detective agency for 12 years. After an ex-girlfriend of Pike’s disappears, the girl’s father asks them to help the police with the search. When the missing persons case turns into a hunt for a killer who has been stalking victims in Los Angeles, Cole and Pike find themselves battling both a hostile police department and a madman.

    What would have made L.A. Requiem better?

    Remove the unnecessary horrific language; it was horribly offensive and very pervasive - and I was disappointed with the author 'tricking' us about who the killer was. It made the story line very contrived. His later work I heard first; which let me to this one. The language in that one was not great either but at least it was not littered on almost every other page. Suffice to say, Crais has become a better writer.I could hear the narrator breathing and that really bothered me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ron McLarty’s performances?

    Probably not


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None that jump out at me right now

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you like graphic depiction of sex acts and pervasive crude and offensive language then this is your book - does audible have a rating program like film - extremely disappointed with this


    Would you be willing to try another book from Daniel Suarez? Why or why not?

    Not if it has that kind of content
