    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    It was OK for a three era book. I sometime's forgot which time frame I was in. You have to have your listening game face on 90% of the time or you'll lose track. I wouldn't listen to it again.
    But for multible reader's (actor's) it was well read.

    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.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Love all his book's. People should read/listen to all of his book series, not just the Rhyme book's. Listeners please read/listen to The Devil's Teardrop. IMO his best book


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I can't get any more interested in the genre.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    He is the voice of Rhyme, an ass and a good guy (when he wants to be) all in one.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing. Perfect as all his other read's.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    No guessing this time. FINALLY I deduced who the killer was before the end of the book! No spoilers here. Use the evidence board's. It's there. I'm so freaking happy with myself I'll never read or listen to a book again. BAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine. The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder....a bounty that has never been found. As they follow the trail, the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of treasure hunters.

    This is what the old Pitt books were like, good plot some history and action. None of the save the world Bull**** the other series are gravitating toward with every addtional book he "C.C". co writes. You'll get that reference if you read the last Pitt book.
    Scott, not every one from Eastern Europe sounds like Adolf or Joseph just an FYI.

    It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades - an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. Nothing else in any other nation’s naval arsenal even comes close. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing - and the man who developed it is dead. At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard... burned to a crisp.

    Same old story as the last one and the six or seven before. You can even hear it in Scott Brick's voice. He must be thinking didn't we just record this one, I guess they forgot. Well I'll take their money if they want to give it to me. The first few book's Dirk was a WWII vet. That in itself would make him what 80,85 year's old.

    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....

    I've lost complete interest in these money maker's from P.C. I could not give a rat's behind for any of what use to be good characters and good stories. I kept telling myself, don't waste a credit on it.
    Can't blame the reader for what she had to read (we all have to eat) it's her job. Thats why the 5 stars for performance.

    Fifteen-year-old Benny Imura lives in a world infested with zombies where, when a kid turns 15, he must get a job to continue receiving food rations. Benny has no interest in the family business of zombie killing, but figures he doesn’t have much of a choice. He’s tried out a bunch of other jobs, and hasn’t found anything he likes. But as Benny starts training with his brother, he learns things about being human that he never expected.

    Nice twist from the old zombie stories. It's got a lot less blood and gut's and nothing spash's in your face.
    Kind of a moral feel and you wonder who are the real monster's us or the zombie's.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."
    "Fast paced. Not your run of the mill zombie's"

    WOW! It's super to find a new author with new idea's. Fresh thinking and a killer narrater. Couldn't wait for book 2 to come to audible, had to go get the book at Barns&Nobel.
    KICKA** good time.

    In this Hugo-nominated novel, an alien walks into a museum and asks if he can see a paleontologist. But the arachnid ET hasn't come aboard a rowboat with the Pope and Stephen Hawking (although His Holiness does request an audience later). Landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the spacefarer, Hollus, asks to compare notes on mass extinctions with resident dino-scientist Thomas Jericho.

    Ione says: "Interesting book, very enjoyable narration"
    "I liked it 8^ )"
    Overall

    This was the frist of his book's I've read and I truly enjoyed it. Liked the reader a lot. Mix of lite theologey, Si-Fi. & straight fiction. A fun listen. Definantly NOT a heavy book as the title would lead one to belive. Agine lite and polite.
