    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    "First rate first novel in a series"
    Overall

    This book is a joy - the narrator is skillful and her characterisations believable, her voice and intonation suit the main character, and draw you quickly into the story. The story is fast moving and action packed - I almost found myself sitting in the car just to find out what was going to happen next! The paranormal aspects of the story were believable and almost normal - nothing was over the top. I cant wait to listen to the next books in the series!

    "Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon. I'm Gin Blanco. You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I'm retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren't aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox."

    Robert says: "Brilliant, Unique, Interesting with just 1 oddety"
    "Great Character, Great story, Great Narrator"
    Overall

    Web of lies builds on the promise of the first Elemental Assassin novel. Gin is an attractive, well drawn character, and the other minor characters are also well drawn, adding dimension to the story. Lots of action, great descriptions of the world in which it takes place - so good that you feel like you know it! What really makes this series is the outstanding narration Lauren Fortgang brings Gin to life - the right accent, right intonation and believable voices for the other characters. I love this series!

    Story
    (24)

    In this erotic horror novel, a grisly murder in New York City's downtown meat-packing district leads hardboiled crime writer Caitlin McCullough into the depths of a secret sadomasochistic underground: a perverse playground for the rich and twisted, where anything goes and nothing is taboo. There, Caitlin must risk everything to find not only the truth surrounding the murder, but the dark truth hidden inside herself.

    Lia says: "Weird"
    "Torturous SM potboiler"
    Overall

    The Narrator for this book is so irritating at the beginning of the book, that I almost stopped listening. Her narrations gets better the deeper into the book you get, however, the reverse is true for the story which starts out so promisingly. The murder ivestigation seems to get lost in the "erotic" sub plot. I was quite disappointed in this.

    Story

    Best-selling author Christopher Fowler has won a widespread following for his senior citizen detectives Arthur Bryant and John May. Here a woman is found drowned in her basement - with nary a drop of water to explain the crime.

    Cholmondeley says: "Baby Boomers Rejoice: This is a book for our time."
    "Engrossing story, eccentric characters"
    Overall

    The Water Room featuring vintage detectives Bryant and May is an engrossing mystery filled with a host of eccentric characters brought to life by the excellent narration of Tim Goodman. Close listening is essential so that you don't miss any of the detail that brings this story and the characters to life. I loved it, and found myself sitting in the car just to keep listening - and like reading any good book was disappointed when it caame to an end. It might be an acquired taste, but for me the Peculiar Crimes Unit mysteries are a taste that I will keep coming back for.
