    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    This was a great listen. There were a couple "turns" in the story I didn't see coming. As usualy, John Sandford didn't dissapoint.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    Story

    Just when you think the book is coming to an end, it goes off in another direction. This happens more than once. I love the spirituality of this series and how a 'good ole boy' can have such insight. I put this series on and have cleaned areas in my house I have only thought about cleaning before! I just keep going so I can keep on listening. Loved it! I laughed and I cried and I held my breath in many places. The bonds of friendship in this series is the kind we all hope we have.

    When an elderly local woman is found poisoned, Sheriff Walt Longmire begins an investigation that soon has him ensnared in a deadly spider's web. From Craig Johnson, author of the acclaimed novel The Cold Dish, comes this enthralling Sheriff Longmire mystery. With a distinctive literary flair, Johnson leads us into the wide open space of Absaroka County, Wyoming.

    Story

    This was a wonderful experience...you could almost feel yourself freezing in the snow. There were laugh-out-loud moments and tearful moments but what I like the most about this author is that he describes the scenes with such fine detail that you can practically smell the food cooking or the donuts baking. Truly enjoyable read with enough suspense to keep me listening. I actually cleaned my entire garage before I knew it, all the time listening to Walt and Bear and the irreverent Vick.

    Few can rival attorney Andy Carpenter's affection for golden retrievers, especially his own beloved Tara. After he astonishes a New Jersey courtroom by successfully appealing another golden's death sentence, Andy discovers that this gentle dog is a key witness to a murder that took place five years before. Andy pushes the boundaries of the law even further as he struggles to free an innocent man by convincing an incredulous jury to take canine testimony seriously. It will take all the tricks Andy's fertile mind can conceive to get to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and murder, and to save a dog's life - and his own - in the process.

    I love this series and the Tara Foundation. The combination of the reader and the author are perfect. Despite murder and intrigue and bad guys, this is STILL a fun read!

    A German Shepherd police dog witnesses a murder and if his owner - an Iraq war vet and former cop-turned-thief - is convicted of the crime, the dog could be put down. Few rival Andy Carpenter's affection for dogs, and he decides to represent the poor canine. As Andy struggles to convince a judge that this dog should be set free, he discovers that the dog and his owner have become involved unwittingly in a case of much greater proportions than the one they've been charged with.

    Story

    This book was OK and as usual caused some out-loud guffaws and I did enjoy it. However, it was less suspensful than some of the others and seemed to drag a bit. I still enjoyed it but not as much as some of the others in the 'dog' series.

    Virgil's always been known for having a somewhat active, er, social life, but he's probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort.

    Ruby says: "Extraordinary Plot Twists"
    "Some surprises"
    Overall

    I did enjoy this book. I didn't expect to because of some of the other reviews I had read. I found it suspensful enough too want to get to the next page even though I figured out all the 'who-dunits' before the end of the book. I enjoy the midwest settings and the downhome 'good ole boys' fishing and drinking. I was even comfortable with the gay/lesbian aspect and I thought it was well handled and not over played or bashed in anyway. This was a 'fun listen'.

    One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator - and a young man hits him on the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead, and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident." Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers, who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell. Remorse? Virgil isn't so sure....

    Bob says: "EXCELLENT!"
    "Boring, disturbing and too much sex"
    Overall

    Sorry, I just couldn't get into this one. There was no suspense, just sex, sex, sex...it was disturbing, not thrilling and the narrator didn't engage me either, I thought his tone was flat. I like the other Sanford stories but truly disliked this one from start to finish.

    Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

    "My favorite Prey book"

    This was my first introduction to the Prey series and I am glad it was. I really enjoyed this book. Being in the medical field, that kept me interested in the plot and following the twins' surgery. I enjoyed it very much, right up to the end.

    In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random; if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to...certainly nothing he ever expected.

    Sheryl Baumgart says: "Another great read"
    "Kept me wondering"
    Overall

    I have read several of the Prey books and I enjoyed this one from start to finish. You always knew "who did it" but there were twists and turns along the way and some unexpected bits and pieces. I was kept wondering right up to the end how it was all going to tie in. I didn't find it too graphic or raunchy and it was easy to listen to. I enjoyed this book. More than Phantom Prey, which I found a little too 'out there' at times.

    In South America a 96-year-old man of great wealth reads a book late one night and an hour later he lies dead in his bed, the secrets of his past starkly revealed. Six months later another mystery man lies dead at the bottom of his pool in a villa in Provence. This time, however, there's a witness at the scene: Shaw, the shadowy operative from The Whole Truth who barely escapes with his life.

    I couldn't put his other books down and looked forward to this one. I was really disappointed. The extreme violence was a big negative for me and I didn't think there was much suspense. It was a hard read (listen) for me. I am glad it is over.
