    Two people have died in macabre accidents, one struck by lightning on Tahoe's highest mountain and one mowed down by a hit-and-run driver. In the middle of a controversial procedure to exhume one of the bodies, powerful businessman Quentin de Beers is killed. Charged with murder, Quentin's angry grandson won't talk, even to Nina Reilly, his defense attorney.

    Overall

    This was an inexpensive audio so I was reluctant to purchase it. I was pleasantly surprised. The plot is interesting with several subplots (or what I call perpendicular plots) which add to the overall interest of the story. Very good character development,more than adequate setting description and a very good reader makes this audio better than most. Although I prefer darker mysteries , this one, though a little on the light side, is worth a listen.

    In the mid-1980s the Snow White Killer terrorized the streets of Nashville, Tennessee. Then suddenly the murders stopped. A letter from the killer to the police stated that his work was done. Now four more bodies are found, marked with his fatal signature. The residents of Nashville fear a madman has returned, decades later, to finish his sick fairy tale. Homicide Lieutenant Taylor Jackson believes the killings are the work of a copycat killer who's even more terrifying.

    Mike says: "Mediocre at best"
    "This is a soap opera"
    Overall

    This audio is more of a soap opera than a mystery. The characters and plot are shallow. The main character is rather self absorbed and somewhat of a brat, though everyone seems to adore her anyway. Her significant other comes across as Superman or Batman or some other Superhero. I can't quite get a grasp of what the other characters are all about other than poor supporting roles. If you enjoy "Lite" mystery and soap operas, give the audio a try, you might like it. If you prefer legitimate mysteries you might want to pass.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "A Mix and not new"
    Overall

    Although this latest book by Dan Brown is better than average regarding mystery it seems to be lacking any new plot subject. It is very similar to "The Da Vinci Code" without the Christian undertone, though there is plenty Religious reference. It lacks the religious moral friction from previous books by Brown which is what made them so interesting. Or perhaps I'm just not that interested in Washington DC characters.
    If you have read "The Da Vinci Code" and have seen the movie, "National Treasure" you have already virtually listened to this audio.
    It seems that Brown is resting on his previous success. You decide.

    In a suburb of Washington, D.C., Joe Lassiter's only sister and her young son have been killed in a sudden fire that engulfs their home. The police believe it was arson; they soon discover that mother and child were brutally murdered before the blaze was set. As Lassiter tries to find out why they were killed, he comes to believe others may have been murdered in similar fashion. And still more people may die if he cannot discover the elusive connection that links the innocent victims together.

    Mobilis says: "Not bad, but not great, either"
    "Good Read, but Insulting"
    Overall

    The characters are well developed, reader is excellent, good "read" for most folks, however, the premise of the story is insulting to faithful Christians. You decide.

    Minneapolis detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are bored - ever since they solved the Monkeewrench case, the Twin Cities have been in a murder-free dry spell, as people no longer seem interested in killing one another. But when elderly Morey Gilbert is found dead in the plant nursery he runs with his wife, Lily, the crime drought ends - not with a trickle, but with a torrent.

    Overall

    I did not know anything about this author when I purchased this audio. However, the storyline seemed interesting so I took a chance. I'm glad I did. The plot is brisk, the characters are interesting because of good character development. The book (audio) is chocked full of a blend of respectful comedy versus tragedy. The reader does a VERY NICE job, but with just a little bit of a problem with female voice, but good enough to be forgivable. I hardily recommend this book if you like murder mystery with a twist.

    A devious serial killer lays siege to the city of Philadelphia, brutally sacrificing pretty young Catholic girls on the altar of insanity. As the body count rises, an exceptional investigating partnership struggles to stop him. Detective Jessica Balzano, Philly's Homicide Unit's newest rookie, is teamed up with veteran cop Kevin Byrne, respected for his solve rate and known for his unorthodox methods.

    Edward says: "Great Listen!"
    "Excellent Read"
    Overall

    Richard Montanari has a talent for exceptional character developement. His writing flows like poetry. Although the plot is not unique... "Cops look for weirdo", I could not stop listening till the very end because of the extremely well written story. The reader adds to excellent entertainment by brilliantly "acting" the story rather than just reading it. If you like insite into characters as well as good prose, don't miss this one.

    The Dupayne, a small private museum in London, is in turmoil. As its trustees argue over whether it should be closed, one of them is brutally and mysteriously murdered. Yet even as Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team proceed with their investigation, a second corpse is discovered. Someone in the Dupayne is prepared to kill and kill again. Still more sinister, the murders appear to echo the notorious crimes of the past featured in one of the museum's galleries: the Murder Room.

    Jim says: "Classic P.D. James"
    "Don't Blink"
    Overall

    No doubt THE MURDER ROOM is one of the best classic mysteries I have listened to to date. The characters were more interesting than the mystery though interesting also. The listener should put a little energy in listening to this book. Idle listening will get you lost. In other words... DON'T BLINK! Jame's best yet!

    America's queen of suspense and her daughter join forces for the first time to create a story of high stakes and detection with a holiday backdrop. Download a free interview with the mother-daughter duo on writing Deck the Halls.

    Overall

    Next time the Higgins' want to do a project together I hope it is something that will not waist serious listener's time. DECK THE HALLS is "Soapopera" at its worst. The plot is shallow and the characters arogant. I tried to listen to this audiobook three times (trying not to waist my money on a rotten book) but I cound never get beyond the firsts 30 minutes without getting bored to death.
