    When Nathan McBride receives a text message from someone who claims she’s been kidnapped, it triggers a deadly chain of events that has the potential to haunt him for the rest of his life. Nathan will soon learn that nothing from his past could ever prepare him for the crisis he’ll soon be facing. The girl’s name is Lauren and she’s just 12 years old.

    What did you love best about Option to Kill?

    I couldn't wait for the next Nathan McBride book. The only downside was that I couldn't stop listening ... And it was over all to soon ... And now I am waiting again!

    It didn't disappoint. If possible it just keeps getting better. Great characters, both old and new - I LOVE both Nathan and Harv, Stone and Granger. And Jin and Lauren are great adds. Fantastic detail, intriguing yet plausible plots. Love the series!


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

    I have listened to many Dick Hill narrations. In fact, searching by his name is how I discovered Andrew Peterson - and other authors who would soon become favorites. He is my favorite narrator, who is especially talented at defining each character with tone, cadence and attitude which both perfectly fits the character, brings them to life, and helps the story flow easily.

    This is another excellent narration.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    What didn’t you like about Michael McConnohie’s performance?

    His performance is like a college lecture - monotone in cadence and pitch and tone. No emotion. Characters are not clearly defined.

    I have listened to all the Harry Bosch books, and looked forward to the new release, but I truly could barely stand to listen because I found the robotic narration so irritating. I love Dick Hill and Len C is great ... Others have been okay ... But I won't ever get a book by this narrator ever again, regardless of the author or series.

    Pender Associates is a shadowy organization that specializes in managing seemingly impossible situations for its clients. Sometimes, those services extend to managing - and creating - armed conflict.

    If you could sum up The Whole Truth in three words, what would they be?

    One of my favorite authors and one of my favorite narrators. And they didn't disappoint. Depth of characters, which are peeled back a layer at a time throughout the novel. Good people doing bad things for good reasons. Bad people doing good things for bad reasons. Subtle twists and turns. (and some not so subtle.)


    What did you like best about this story?

    Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm."


    Any additional comments?

    Ron McLarty is such an easy listen. He adds a dimension to the characters that any author should appreciate!

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    Dick Hill is one of my top 2 narrators. He narrates clearly and brings characters and situations to life. He adds a dimension to every novel he reads by clearly defining each characters persona, and consistently maintaining it throughout the read.
