    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

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

    From two sheriff recorded murders that no one knows about to the telephonic report of a train-struck car before the time it happened, there are just too many premises that don’t ring true. Mr. Child got sloppy. My first disappointment of the entire series.


    Would you recommend The Affair to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, mildly.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    Just a great book in every way. It is very sad that this is the end of the series.

    Travis McGee is too busy with his houseboat to pay attention to the little old man with the missing postage stamps. Except these are no ordinary stamps. They are rare stamps. Four hundred thousand dollars worth of rare. And if McGee doesn't recognize their value, perhaps Mary Alice McDermit, a six-foot knockout who knows all the ways to a boat bum's heart, will. Only it's not McGee's heart that's in danger. Because a syndicate killer has put a contract on McGee.

    Story

    This would be a four or five star rating if rated as a traditional book. The single problem is that the book is written in the first person and the narrator just does not sound, in my opinion, like you would expect McGee to sound. Nothing wrong with his voice, but the emphasis, phrasing, etc. just does not seem to be McGee.

    Private eye Travis McGee outwaits and outwits a deranged killer as he searches for a missing wife on a remote Caribbean island, where he also tangles with a baby-faced businessman with a taste for murder.

    Story

    I read all these books some 40 years ago and was happy to see them as audio books. It is unfortunate, however, that they are in the first person -- the narrator (phrasing, emphasis, etc.) just does not sound like MeGee to me.
