    Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform.

    Stephen says: "No connection to new heroine"
    "Pretty bad"
    Overall

    Either Baldacci did not write this book, or he is seriously losing his grip. Formulaic, predictable, and hackneyed. Save your money.

    Mystery lovers everywhere are addicted to Donna Leon's ever-honorable Commissario Guido Brunetti and her portrayal of Venice's beautiful but sinister byways and canals. In Willful Behavior, Brunetti is approached for a favor by one of his wife's students. Intelligent and serious, Claudia Leonardo asks for his help in obtaining a pardon for a crime once committed by her now-dead grandfather.

    Can't miss a Brunetti mystery but, my goodness, a narrator who can't pronounce "Chiara"!? Where else is he leading us astray? And where were the editors?

    The tomb of China’s First Emperor, guarded by an underground army of terra-cotta warriors, has remained sealed for more than 2,000 years. Though it’s regarded as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, the Chinese government won’t allow anyone to open it. Why? That question is at the heart of a dilemma faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone, whose life is shattered when he receives an anonymous note carrying an unfamiliar Web address.

    Jackie says: "Fascinating Ride!"
    "Copehagen"
    Overall

    I've just started, and it may be OK, but not immediately gripping.

    Scott Brick is a good reader, but why oh why didn't he (or an editor or somebody) look up how to pronounce "Copenhagen"? Why rely on Danny Kaye?
