    Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

    What did you love best about Agenda 21?

    I love the entire subject. Reminded me of a book I read back in 2000 called the Illuminati by Larry Burkett.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I thought the narrator was great. Very soothing voice


    Any additional comments?

    I never really had an ending. What did I miss? the book just stopped when the girl got out the fence and ran and then Beck came in with his announcement. Was that the ending? I felt I was left incomplete. Or maybe I didn't get the whole book?

    Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm doing background research for the partners. It's not that he isn't smart. He is. It's just that hard work, the whole legal world, isn't really his thing. Underachiever? Yes. Content? At least until the firm puts him on a case that turns his whole world upside down.

    Where does Heart of a Killer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    David Rosenfelt is one of my favorite authors. His books are always good. The problem with this book wasn't the story line, it was the narrator. His normal voice was ok, but when he tried to change his voice to sound like other characters in the book, I felt like I was listening to cartoons or some kids show. None of them were believable and it bothered me at times. Kind of spoiled the story. It was like listening to a really suspenseful radio show and suddenly the detective speaks and its Sponge Bob. But I love David Rosenfelt and would still buy his books. Just hope he uses another narrator next time.


    What didn’t you like about Tadd Morgan’s performance?

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Would you give your heart to the one you love?

    Overall

    Great book, great author, great series. Don't bother getting it because they don't have the second book of the series nor some of the others. Why bother getting a few of a series and letting us hang???? I hate it.

    When a dachshund she's walking digs up a dead body, she realizes the person she's just waved to, the one speeding away in the dead man's car, may be the murderer. Although Dixie can't ID this mysterious driver, the killer got a good look at her - and Dixie's life is in danger.

    If you are looking for a great mystery but with a lighter flair, look no more. Great first book, hope to see more from this author.
