    Hannah Payne awakens to a nightmare. She is lying on a table in a bare room, covered only by a paper gown, with cameras broadcasting her every move to millions at home. She is now a convicted criminal, and her skin color has been genetically altered. Her crime, according to the State of Texas: the murder of her unborn child, whose father she refuses to name. Her color: red. The color of newly shed blood.

    Story

    I am not into religion books and I would not say this is a "religious" book. There is a lot about religion but it is more about finding the right path for yourself. This has a great plot and story. I could not "put it down"! I have recommended it to my brother and nephew. I would say that you might find it offensive if you are a very religious person. For example, I would not suggest this to my mom as she would probably not like it. But if you like a good story, good characters and a good book, then READ THIS!

    I can't get enough of these. I will now download and listen to The Burden of Proof. I'm not sure if it was supposed to be read before or after this one, but who cares! They are great no matter what!

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    Story

    This is a crazy wild TRUE story. It is told by the Prosecutor. This was not part of my "time" as I was born 10 years after this occurred. I had heard references made of the Manson Murders, but never really quit understood what they were or how they came about. This history should not be lost over the years. This crazy event is reason to keep your eyes open and not let anyone have control over who you are.

    Wow - to think of all the terror people went through during this time is really, unbelievable!

But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings.

    This book, and I will assume the series are along the lines of Twiglight. However, this book is not for the teens when it comes to desribing the sex scenes. I may listen to the other books, but no one right after the other. The story line is different, but again it makes me think of Twilight and Fifty Shade mixed up with eachother. Oddly, I read both the Twilight and Fifty Shades series and liked both of them very much. I'm just not sure why this book did not entertain me as much. It might be due to the paranormal aspects of the book. I'm not sure.

Prosecutor Rusty Sabich is transformed from accuser to accused when he is handed an explosive case - that of the brutal murder of a woman who happens to be his former lover.

    I did not realize that this book was written so long ago. I also did not know that it was made into a movie a few years after the book was written. I will be renting the movie, for sure. This book was a little slow in some areas, but overall it was a good read and a good story. I will be checking out Scott Turow's other books.

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    This is the first book I read by Nora Roberts. I found myself sad after it was over. I did not want the story to end. This book keeps you guessing. It could have been much longer if it went into more detail about the characters, but it was still a great read.
