    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Where does The Racketeer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I haven't read a Grisham book in a long time and discovered when I listened to this that I really missed him!


    What does J.D. Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The freedom to do my art work and get lost in a fantastic book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not all one sitting but every time I was in my art room, it went on.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED it!

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Gardner says: "Best Yet... Almost"
    "Absolutely great performance!"

    Would you try another book from James Lee Burke and/or Will Patton?

    Yes, I would. I've read other Burke books but this is the first one I've listened to.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would like it better if he had Dave in more of the book. I like that character better. After visiting New Iberia Parrish, I am absolutely enthralled with the area, the food, the music and the people. Burke really delves into all of that and makes it even more real to me.


    What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

    I'm not from the area but always loved the accent when we spent time there. I liked Patton's performance a lot and will look to hear more from him in the future.


    Did The Glass Rainbow inspire you to do anything?

    No not really other than to read more of Burke's books.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Killing Lincoln to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Lincoln?

    The civil war tales ~ very descriptive and it really held my attention.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listened and kept coming back. I did listen to it in just a couple of days, though.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I would recommend the book because it was well written and really held my interest. I was told it was a good book but I am surprised I liked it as much as I did. I found myself angry at times knowing the story was about things that happened in the deep south during my lifetime. Being a Northerner, this isn't the way we heard about life down there and I felt duped when I finished it ~ I felt that this just COULDN'T be the way things really happened. I was shocked to read of the fear the blacks felt and the way they were treated. As I said, this wasn't what we were reading in the newspapers or learning about in our "all white schools".


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way all of the women banded together to accomplish something like they did. We are women hear us roar!

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "Don't Judge the Series by the First Book!"
    "Another delicious Robb book."

    What did you love best about Naked in Death?

    I liked her usual style of writing and suspense and look forward to reading more of her books.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first listening to Susan Ericksen but I enjoyed her narration.

This time, Stephanie has decided to quit her job as a bounty hunter. She wants something safe. She wants something normal. She's tired of creeps, weirdos, and stalkers. But just when she thinks she's out, they pull her back in!

    What did you love best about Eleven on Top?

    I love the sexual tension between the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really like Grandma Mazur and can picture the late Estelle Getty playing her. She's sassy and I always like her trips to Stiva's funeral home.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When her cello was introduced. It was so funny...


    Any additional comments?

    I've read the Evonovich books through book 10 and really enjoyed them. Having the audio made "reading" the ELEVEN ON TOP book experience more enjoyable. I turn on my Kindle when I work in my art room and the hours just fly by. I used to turn the TV on for "background noise" but I am liking this, my first audio book, much better. I'm sure I will get more of these books in the future. This is much more fun than the TV by a long shot.
