    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cold Dish to be better than the print version?

    I can't imagine the printed version being better than the audio version. George Guidall's delivery and timing is perfect. He really makes the characters stand up on their own. If I was reading, instead of listening, to this book I don't think I could give it the same punch that he delivers.


    What other book might you compare The Cold Dish to and why?

    Believe it or not, this series of books reminds me of the Stephanie Plum series. Instead of Jersey, it's Wyoming. Instead of Mafia, it's Cowboys and Indians. While maintaining a serious and interesting story line, there's enough humor and comic relief to give the book a soft edge.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Although George Guidall has an impressive list of books he has narrated, the only other books I have heard him read have been Stephen King's Dark Tower series. He did a wonderful job with these considering he had to fill Frank Muller's shoes. His performance in this book is just as stellar. I really loved his adaptation of the indian characters, especially Henry Standing Bear.


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

    Certainly! This is a story that will have you wearing your mp3 player in the shower so you can find out how it ends.


    Any additional comments?

    While not all the Walt Longmire books are as good as this one, it's still a great series and I'm looking forward to the next one. This book is a credit well spent.

    This explosive novel of the drug trade takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.

    I just finished this book. My next listen will be...

    ...this book!

    You just can't absorb it all in one listen. But even if you think you can, this is worth two, three, five listens? It's like a good movie. You will want to see it more than once.

    If you haven't added this title to your library yet, I suggest you buy right now!

  • Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    Elysabeth Cummings says: "Interesting @ arm's length"
    "I was totally enthralled by this book!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Under the Banner of Heaven to be better than the print version?

    Sure...you got to love Scott Brick. He could read a phone book and make it sound exciting.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not a religious person and I must admit I knew next to nothing about the Mormons going into this book. But I like Jon Krakauer's style and have enjoyed some of his other books immensely so I decided to give this one a chance. I'm glad I did. Some very interesting stuff going on here and Scott Brick keeps it entertaining.
