    Nathan McCann thought he didn't want a family. But when he finds an abandoned newborn in the woods, he feels an inexplicable bond with the boy and starts to make plans to raise the child as his own - until the baby's grandmother steps forward to claim him. Nathan makes a request of her, though: to one day bring the boy to meet his rescuer.

    The killer's methods are terrifying. He stalks the basements and underground passageways of New York City. He tattoos his victims' flesh with cryptic messages, using a tattoo gun loaded with poison, resulting in an agonizing, painful death. When a connection is made to the Bone Collector - the serial killer who terrorized New York more than a decade ago - Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are immediately drawn into the case.

    Book is OK - storyline is standard Lincoln Rhyme. I would have given a higher rating but for the narrator. This is the first book I've heard him do, but his voice really got on my nerves!

    Monday morning, a young mother disappears after a doctor’s appointment. Monday evening, a young socialite leaves a risqué lounge and never makes it home. Detective Jackson lands both cases, but at first he can’t find signs of foul play. When the socialite turns up dead, his investigation uncovers her dirty secrets, which complicates everything. The case runs into even bigger trouble with a suspect who hasn’t left his house in a year.

    Another great book from Sellers! Loved the story and the narrator was wonderful. Damon Abdallah is SOOO much better than Patrick Lawlor. His voice is clear and his characterizations are very good as well.

    Who slaughtered Jared and Carla Walker and their young son in their own home? Only their teenage daughter, the sole survivor, knows the truth. But it’s buried in her traumatized mind - leaving Detective Wade Jackson to weigh a tangle of inconclusive evidence and size up a gallery of suspects. A gang of carjackers may have graduated to home invasion and homicide, but Jackson’s not ruling out a bitter brother-in-law convinced the Walkers ripped him off big-time, a young heroin addict in forbidden love with the family’s daughter, or the former employer Jared Walker had on the blackmail hook.

    Story

    As always, the story line is wonderful, and the writing is great. The only problem with this book is the narrator - I didn't like his voice at all - he constantly sounds as though he needs to clear his throat. His vocal characterizations leave a great deal to be desired as well. But for the narrator, I would have given this book 5 stars for overall instead of just 3.

    One by one, children of New York's wealthiest are taken hostage. But the criminal doesn't crave money or power--he only wants to ask the elite if they know the price others pay for their luxurious lifestyles. And, if they don't, he corrects their ignorance - by killing them.

    story was great (as always), but I HATED THE SOUND EFFECTS - the spookymusic(?) in the background - and especially the various characters sobbing and crying! I would much prefer just a simple narration - it doesn't need to sound like a radio melodrama!

    Bill Black is a scary guy: a tall ex-con who rides to work on a Harley, and trails an air of violence wherever he goes. In Macon, Georgia, Bill has caught the eye of a wiry little drug dealer and his cunning girlfriend. They think Bill might be a useful ally. They don’t know that Bill is a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent named Will Trent. Or that he is fighting his own demons, undercover and cut off from the support of Sara Linton - the woman he loves, who he dares not tell he is putting himself at such risk.

    Unseen was better than Criminal (which I returned), but I still don't care for the flashback style Slaughter has adopted with these last two books. Hopefully, she'll return to her previous brilliant style. As always, I loved the Kathleen Early narration.

    America's favorite bounty hunter is back behind the wheel in her fifth hilarious, high-octane thriller. Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie Plum strikes out on her own. Okay, so a scumball blows himself to bits on her first day of policing a crack house, and the sheik she was chauffeuring steals the limo. But hey, nobody's perfect.

    Very disappointing afte listening to the first 4 in the series, narrated by C.J. Critt! This narrator is distracting - reads too fast, and I HATE her accent! Also, why is a 3 hour book so expensive!???? Think I'll return it, and I won't buy any more, because there aren't any more narrated by Critt, and I don't want to take any more chances on these narrators.

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Andrea Kane brings fans a brand new series with her romantic thriller The Girl Who Disappeared Twice. Forensic Instincts—a team of independent maverick investigators comprised of a techie-genius, a former Navy SEAL/FBI agent, a psychic, and a retired FBI dog—must rescue a kidnapped five-year-old girl. But with so many people who could have benefited from the girl’s abduction, tracking down the culprit will push the team to the limit.

    LOVED the story - great plot, but I DO NOT like this narrator - his cadence is all wrong. Why does no one "proof" his performance before release? Overall rating would have been a 5 star but for the narrator.

His best chance for survival died with his father, Paul, who was murdered before Justin was born.

    I loved this story - I'm gettging hooked on FI, but does no one listen to this narrator before the books are released? He puts emphases and inflections in the wrong places, and throws the listener off with his cadence. Surely, there is a director who oversees these readings - if so, that person did not do his/her job properly. Please find someone else to narrate future FI books.
