    Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro's latest client is a prominent Boston psychiatrist running scared from a vengeful Irish mob. The private investigators know something about cold-blooded retribution. Born and bred on the mean streets of blue-collar Dorchester, they've seen the darkness that lives in the hearts of the unfortunate.

    Would you listen to Darkness, Take My Hand again? Why?

    Yes. This is the kind of novel that "pulls you in" from the start and presents well drawn and interesting characters.


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

    Yes, very well crafted and keeps you guessing.


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

    Yes, he's very good, especially with the Boston inflections.


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

    Just looked forward to each listening session.

    This James Lee Burke novel, featuring Son Holland - the great-grandfather of Burke's Billy Bob Holland - as he flees a Louisiana prison camp with a Native American woman and a fellow prisoner in tow, is now available in audio.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Two for Texas to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Two for Texas to and why?

    Any of the "Holland" series by James Lee Burke. He captures western landscapes and characters in a very insightful and artful way. I love the way he handles language.


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

    Yes, he does a great job with Burke's novels. I believe he could do other authors equally well, but I have not personally heard them. There's something about his voice that really captures the mood of the story.


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

    Just loved it - well researched, believable, and well told.

  • The Outfit

    The Outfit was organized crime with a capital O. They were big. They were bad. They were brutal. And no crook ever crossed them and lived to enjoy it. Except Parker. So they wanted Parker dead, and a hit man proved they meant business. Too bad for the Outfit he missed. Ripping off the Outfit was the easy part of Parker's game. Going one-on-one with Bronson, the Outfit's Big Boss, was the hard part.

    Jane says: "The Outfit (mafia) sends a hitman to kill Parker."
    "Better than the movies"

    If you could sum up The Outfit in three words, what would they be?

    Dark, gritty, entertaining


    What other book might you compare The Outfit to and why?

    Maybe some Dashiel Hammett novels, but much darker.


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

    No.


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

    He's no hero, but you want him on your side.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be getting more of the series. Yes, they are dated but so are novels by Dash Hammett, Raymond Chandler and even Robert B. Parker.

    On location in Boston, bad-boy actor Jumbo Nelson is accused of the rape and murder of a young woman. From the start the case seems fishy, so the Boston PD calls on Spenser to investigate. Things don't look so good for Jumbo, whose appetites for food, booze, and sex are as outsized as his name. He was the studio's biggest star, but he's become its biggest liability...

    Jean says: "SixKill"
    "Perhaps his best Spenser ever"
    Overall

    The title says it all. I still love Parker and Spenser. He will be greatly missed.

    Four United States presidents have been assassinated - in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963 - each murder seemingly unrelated and separated by time. But what if those presidents were all killed for the same reason: a clause in the United States Constitution - contained within Article 1, Section 8 - that would shock Americans? This question is what faces former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone in his latest adventure. When a bold assassination attempt is made against President Danny Daniels in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks his life to foil the killing....

    Eric says: "Great listen; great narration, worth the credit"
    "Possibly the silliest thing I've ever read"
    Overall

    It begins with two devices that would require an expert in computer programming, ballistics, metallurgy, networking and covert ops that assumes everyone working at a major NYC hotel is an idiot. It continues with two characters (Cotton Malone and Danny Daniels) that have southern drawls so similar as to be indecipherable. We are introduced to a document still intact and readable 200 years after being secreted in an underground grotto that floods on a regular basis. And finally, 3 female characters, at least 2 of whom have lead relatively sedentary lives, have the ability to leap into the open ocean from a sinking ship and be picked up from rocket firing helicopters ill-equipped to deal with air-sea rescue. Absolutely preposterous. Get it it if you wish to sacrifice 12-15 hours of your life that you will never get back.
