    Dr. Charlotte Stone sees what others do not. A sought-after expert in criminal pathology, Charlie regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. Obsessed with learning what makes human monsters commit terrible crimes, Charlie desires little else from life - no doubt because when she was 16, she herself survived a serial killer's bloodbath: A man butchered the family of Charlie's friend, then left the girl's body on a seaside boardwalk one week later. Because of the information Charlie gave police, the Boardwalk Killer went underground.

    Nick Gautier is tired of his destiny. He doesn’t want to be the son of a demon who’s fated to end the world. Nor does he want to see another demon or other preternatural creature who wants to kill or enslave him. He just wants to be normal and have normal problems like everyone else. But normality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Collector to be better than the print version?

    No I consider both Great


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

    River Road by Jayne Ann Krentz... Love both stories the way they were plotted and Narrated .. Good stories by good authors...


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like her voice and the way she separates the characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire story moved me but especially that the third person which was an older man was tortured and murdered..


    Any additional comments?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No .... Just dragged on I could not finish it... And Stephanie Laurens is my top 5 favorite authors... This is the first of her books I did not really like or enjoyed...


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Totally Nora Roberts


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Napoleon Ryan?

    Napoleon was ok, but my number one narrator is Rosalyn Landor, especially for this kind of Story and time


    Do you think The Masterful Mr. Montague needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes if the story contained a little more action mystery and suspense .. Romance


    Any additional comments?

    Stephanie Laurens is still my favorite...
