    "You have a very lovely little girl," breathed the voice on the phone. And just like that, Susan Young is drawn into a living nightmare. A stranger has kidnapped Sue's daughter, Veda. But he doesn't want Sue's money, only her suffering -- and he will kill Veda if Sue doesn't follow his every command.

    When a tragic family accident brings Laura Fleming back home to Byerly, North Carolina, the sleuth discovers that her beloved grampaw's fatal fall from a ladder in the old mill was not an accident.

    Story

    Found this book predictable and dull. The Southerners in the book are stereotypical racist and stupid. The Northern educated relative visits and 'puts everyone in their place'. Characters lack dimension and common sense. Knew ending a third of the way in.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    This is an engrossing novel with great turns. The main characters are not likeable. However, the media machine who drivies the story is so relevant.

    Armed with only his wits and his diary, Spud takes listeners of all ages on a rowdy boarding-school romp full of illegal midnight swims, raging hormones, and catastrophic holidays that will leave the entire family in total hysterics and thirsty for more.

    Kim says: "A really fun book!"
    "Insightful, Quirky, and Fun"
    Overall

    Spud's insights stay with you long after the book ends. The author delves into heavy topics such as sexuality, racism, mental illness, and alcoholism. The irreverent tone of the young teenager named Spud makes the journey so much fun.

    It begins on one of Rome's least-known hills, the Aventino, in the public piazza fronting the mansion of the Knights of Malta. There, a curious keyhole to the knights' estate reveals an astonishing view, a direct line across the Tiber to the dome of St. Peters in the distance.

    Vivian says: "6 stars"
    "Underground Rome"
    Overall

    A good book. Learned about an ancient Roman cult and listened to a mytery unfold at the same time.... Not boring at all. The team of investigators are well developed characters. Plus the scene with the 'worm' autopsy makes it totally worth it...
