    After more than 20 years of distinguished service with the Seattle Police Department, Jonas Piedmont Beaumont is now working for the Washington State Attorney's Special Homicide Investigation Team or, as it's more commonly referred, the SHIT squad. But the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Peter says: "Wince if you're from Seattle"
    "Broad Book"
    Overall

    Yes the narrator was bad and the voices worse but the story line and slow thought processes were repeated over and over yet not thought through. I wish I had gotten the abridged version it is half as long and should be only half as boring. No Mystery and no Thrills, Beaumont is not the hard nose hero but a mushy poof ball with lots of feeling to work through. This might make a OK chick flick... Broad Book. My first and last J. A. Jance / J. P. Beaumont novel.

    Ellis Alves is no angel. But his lawyer says he was framed for the murder of college student Melissa Henderson...and asks Spenser for help.

    Vincent says: "Reynolds and the Book Were Excellent"
    "Nice"
    Overall

    good story a little off from Parker/Spencer norm. If we need some one famous to read it it should be the Spenser - Robert Urich

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    colleen says: "I loved it!"
    "Great!"
    Overall

    At sideway look at death with Death Merchant, Harpies & Soul Vessels, the story is good and the humor is LOL, tears in your eyes funny. Good read and interesting characters. We will back up and read all of Christopher Moore’s books.

    A serial killer watches and waits. Each time, he takes two victims, preparing the first's body with all the clues the police need to find the second, who is still alive. The clock ticks, and the second one can still be saved. But the police never make it in time. The second one dies. For years, the killer has plagued the city with the same pattern, but the police never pick up on it quickly enough.

    Mina Brown says: "Captivating--it hooks you!"
    "Well done, unique!"
    Overall

    This book was written for those who think. If you wish for a book where everything is in outline form and the characters are superhuman and above making mistakes this book is not for you;watch a movie instead. The book seemed slow in the beginning as things were developed and then the launch. Well written, interesting story, beleivable characters, real heart... I will read more of her work. Not the book factory standard mystery.

    Fifty-nine days. That's how long Rennell Price has to live after spending 15 years on death row for the horrifying sexual assault and murder of a girl whose body was found floating in San Francisco Bay. But attorney Terri Paget has dedicated her life to fighting for people like Rennell Price. This time, Terri has a client she believes may actually be innocent, which means that an unpunished killer may still be free.

    Brenda says: "CONVICTION"
    "Long, Slow & Politically Liberal"
    Overall

    A reverse tour through a 15 year old heinous murder with a laborious trip through the courts of appeal. A resound cry against he death penalty and a bashing of the American court system. Stereotypical race and gender players. Would have given it NO STAR if I could.

    Overall

    I made 3 1/2 hours and gave up on a waste of money. Even the action part are dull beyond. Over worded and detailed are the good points.
    The narration lack spirit but it is in keeping with the story. One star for volume only.

    The U.S. and China have emerged in the millennium as the pre-eminent superpowers. Japan and the U.S. have worked in secret at a disused nuclear safety research center on a remote island in the South China Sea to perfect a viable nuclear fusion reactor. Suddenly, the black veil of secrecy is shredded, the long-shot project is on the verge of breakthrough, and the Chinese want the prize for themselves.

    Tom says: "Superb"
    "What?"
    Overall

    The story was so-so. The background noise (drama) over shadows the narrators who had trouble of their own. I got tired of backing up to not hear again what usless piece of the non-puzzle I had missed.Tech buffer that I am, there is no Nobel Prize given for Mathmatics. Other technical difficulty I had? which internet protocols was he referring to and which ATV has a twist throttle.

    In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

    Mary says: "Terrifying"
    "PRAY for the end."
    Overall

    This book drones on and on. The main man is really slow minded but he is ahead of the pace of the book. The narrator slips up in voice changes, the 'time line' of events is not reasonable and the tech facts are slightly a skewed. It seems to be written as a screenplay, too many background (useless) details. I cannot recommend this book.
