  • Mystery: An Alex Delaware Novel

    Few know the city of Los Angeles the way #1 best-selling author and acclaimed suspense master Jonathan Kellerman does. His thrilling novels of psychological drama and criminal detection make the capital of dreams a living, breathing character in all its glamour and infamy. That storied history of fame, seduction, scandal, and murder looms large in Mystery, as Alex Delaware finds himself drawn into a twisting, shadowy whodunit that’s pure L.A. noir—and vintage Kellerman.

    His shipmates dead, star rigger Gev Carlyle is adrift in the Flux, the subjective hyperdimensional sea that carries ships between the stars. His lone companion, and sole hope for survival, is a suicidal catlike alien named Cephean. Only a compatible rigger team, their visions meshed in psychic unity, can safely harness the turbulent currents of the Flux - and Carlyle's ship is sailing inexorably toward the deadly maelstrom of the Hurricane Flume. For even a chance at survival, he needs Cephean's help. But the price for that is a complete merging of minds and memories.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone that can listen on speakers only.


    What was most disappointing about Jeffrey A. Carver’s story?

    Couldn't listen long enough to tell you.


    What didn’t you like about Mirron Willis’s performance?

    The alien character changed to such a loud voice that I couldn't listen to it with my headset. The volume kept going up and down constantly.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Couldn't listen long enough to tell.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been rather disappointed in my last few selections of science fiction, except for the Parasite Planet. The stories have been choppy and scattered. The names of the characters have been difficult to keep up with. I may have to change genre.

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The old Kay. I just got sick of her niece and all her problems. Always complaining about Moreno, in the old days he saved her a lot of times and now he is some kind of enemy.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patricia Cornwell again?

    I don't know.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was just fine. Not exciting but fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't know I couldn't finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    Read her old books they were much better,.

  • Winter Study: An Anna Pigeon Mystery

    It is January, and Park Ranger Anna Pigeon is sent to Isle Royale in Lake Superior to learn about managing and understanding wolves, as her home base of Rocky Mountain National Park might soon have its own pack of the magnificent, much-maligned animals. But what was once an idyllic refuge becomes a place of unnatural occurrences and danger beyond the ordinary.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was time well spent. I thought the first half of the books was slow. I was expecting more action but the second half if seemed like Anna came to life and was her same old self.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anna for her humor and deduction. Some times I can hear myself in her voice.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    I lobe Barbara Rosenblat. She could read the newspaper to me and I would be happy. When I'm stressed I can listen to her and she seems to calm me down. She as Anna always make me feel better.


    Could you see Winter Study being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    Nevada Barr always gives you a great story and I really enjoy her descriptions. She makes you feel that you are at the locations and it they are beautiful or ugly you can see it in your mind as if you were there.
