    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "Classic King"
    Overall

    I almost didn't read Under the Dome because of the negative reviews. I did, however, have a friend who said it was a great read. I've always loved Stephen King so.... This wasn't my favorite read, mainly because I so wanted to 'do away' with the detestable bad guy. The ending caught me by surprise and though (also like most King novels) it didn't end exactly as I'd like, it did end with a surprise. Don't take the negative reviews on their own (maybe they had a political axe to grind?) and read for yourself!

    The discovery of two teenage girls' bodies and a video of a snuff movie showing the death of one of the victims leaves Detective Inspector Jack Frost in a race against time before the killer can strike again.

    Overall

    I just reread the other reviews for this book to make sure I didn't overlook a reviewer mentioning just how British/Cockney this read is. Yes...I know we all like different types of books. However had I know just how British in humor, character portrayal, etc., this book was I would not have purchased it - my credits are way too valuable!! I am in no way disparaging Brits -just don't come close to understanding the slang/dialogue in this book. I don't even like the protagonist. I am attempting to step out of my comfort zone and finish the read but want other Audible members who might not be fans of the British detective genre to have another perspective before they purchase.

    Serious trouble is brewing in Brighton, California, a sprawling coastal community on the eastern edge of the Los Angeles Basin: Its Mayor has just been murdered, and the chief of police has resigned amid rumors of corruption in his department. Now, ex-police officer Joe Copp has been hired by an old friend, the current Brighton City administrator, to get to the bottom of the municipal mess.

    The narrator sounds way to much like Walter Brimley (the old guy with the mustache) to me. I'm having trouble relating to the plot because I keep seeing an older person selling insurance to the elderly. Can't get past the voice to really give the book a chance.

    Virgil Flowers kicked around for a while before joining the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. First it was the army and the military police, then the police in St. Paul, and finally Lucas Davenport brought him into the BCA, promising him, "We'll only give you the hard stuff." He's been doing the hard stuff for three years now, but never anything like this.

    Crystal says: "Great winding road of a story"
    "Love this new guy!"
    Overall

    Was afraid I'd be disappointed in a Sanford novel without Lucas Davenport - not!! The way I judge a really good book is if I get to work in the am and want to sit in the car (at the risk of being late!) and keep listening. I suspected but didn't 'figure it out' until almost the end. I highly recommend.
