    Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads.

    Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards.

    "Wonderful Characters"
    Overall

    This book has wonderful offbeat characters. The book keeps your interest and it makes you laugh. Carl Hiaasin books while they are fiction are based on real events and people which makes them even more interesting. I will get another Carl Hiaasin book.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Would you listen to The Black Box again? Why?

    I enjoyed listening to Harry Bosch continue on with his investigations.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me interested. I was not bored and did not think it was slow paced.


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

    No. I think that some of the other reviews of this new narrator are not fair. I almost did not listen to the book because of their wrong negative comments on the narration. I am glad that I did not heed their advice.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was just fine maybe he was not what you were used to but he did a good job.

    A twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

    "Funny and Twisted Characters"
    Overall

    Vintage Hiaasin. Funny with twisted characters. Great read and great listen. The narrator does a great job. I love how Hiaasin characters great their just desert.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    I never thought that a audio book of this length could keep my attention. This book was exciting from start to finish. The narration was great. I highly recommend.
