    Edgar Award nominee Robert Crais’ L.A. Requiem is a gritty, harrowing look into the minds of a serial killer and the men determined to stop him. Elvis Cole and former cop Joe Pike have been partners in a detective agency for 12 years. After an ex-girlfriend of Pike’s disappears, the girl’s father asks them to help the police with the search. When the missing persons case turns into a hunt for a killer who has been stalking victims in Los Angeles, Cole and Pike find themselves battling both a hostile police department and a madman.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    I loved the bonding between the main character and the dog. I loved that the story was also told from the dogs view.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Suspect?

    When the main character and the dog bonded.


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

    He makes you believe that the dog is having the thoughts that he is explaining.

    I almost cried when I thought the K-9 was going to be taken away from the main character.

    A must read for dog lovers.

    A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home, however, the pressures of his physical wounds, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. In constant physical pain, he soon found himself unable to climb a simple flight of stairs or face a bus ride to the VA hospital. He drank; he argued; he cut himself off from those he loved. Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever....

    Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy “the Bull” Gravano, once one of the mafia's most feared hit men. With 19 confessed murders, the former Gambino Crime Family underboss - and John Gotti’s right-hand man - is the highest ranking gangster ever to turn State’s evidence and testify against members of his high-profile crime family. But to Karen, Sammy Gravano was a sometimes elusive but always loving father figure. He was ever-present at the head of the dinner table.

    Elvis Cole is just a detective who can't say no, especially to a girl in a terrible fix. And Jennifer Sheridan qualifies: Her fiance, Mark Thurman, is a decorated L.A. cop with an elite plainclothes unit, but Jennifer's sure he's in trouble - the kind of serious trouble that only Elvis Cole can help him out of.

    Story

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to American Sniper the most enjoyable?

    It was interesting to hear the view of this war through the eyes of sniper. The narration was very entertaining. Its a shame that he died the way that he did, trying to help a fellow Vet.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of American Sniper?

    There were many memorable moments. Chris Kyle's relationship with his wife throughout his enlistments. His training as a SEAL. Kyle's first sniper shot and his long sniper shot.


    What about John Pruden’s performance did you like?

    Chris Kyle was from Texas. Pruden had a southern drawl which helped you get emersed in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an awesome story. I feel for his wife and family. He died trying to help a fellow Vet. Very sad.
