    According to Maya legend, December 21, 2012, will mark the end of the world as we know it. Is it myth...or will their prediction become reality? Archaeologist Lina Taylor has devoted her life to studying ancient Maya artifacts, splitting her time between digs in South America and the classroom teaching college students. But the professor's structured, academic life is about to spin out of control. Some extremely valuable and important Maya artifacts have gone missing. Are the culprits fanatics determined to create chaos and usher in annihilation?

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    a little spice is great, but this book was much more about sex than a story line. I couldn't finish it.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I only got through three quarters of this book - the characters are too shallow and predictable and the language is clipped and unrealistic. I would not recommend this book.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jenny Hilborne? Why or why not?

    Probably not as I did not enjoy the sing-song writing style.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by David Gilmore?

    Yes


    Did Madness and Murder inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend this book.

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    What disappointed you about Red Mist?

    I have read the entire series and this book and her last seem like different authors. Kay is always so angry. I got about half way through and decided it wasn't worth my time.


    Has Red Mist turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I love murder, thrillers, and intrigue, but I won't buy another Patricia Cornwell book.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kate Burton?

    No, I think she added to the anger.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Red Mist?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    Tone it down an notch!!

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    Buffalogal says: "Incredible"
    "I loved this book!"
    Overall

    I've read all three of Tana French's books, in order in the past month and have loved them all, but this was my favorite. The accents are great, the family intrigue is interesting. Overall it was a very enjoyable book.

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    Terry says: "once again angry"
    "Very disappointed"
    Overall

    I was very disappointed in both the narration (too dramatic) and the book. Kay is now angry, self analyzing and melodramatic. I've read all the Kay Scarpetta books, and didn't like this book at all.
