    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    loved this book. I have been on a detective / murder mystery jag lately and this is up there with the best of them.. told only like King could tell it. the ending implies maybe a sequel? something more? great characters.

    Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    yes


    If you’ve listened to books by Robyn Carr before, how does this one compare?

    the series is getting a bit predictable, misunderstandings, that get resolved in the end.


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

    good, she does well with voice differences


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    maybe another in the series

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

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

    I imagine if I were reading it, I would not know how to say many of the words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Outlander?

    Most memorable moment was Claire fighting for Jamey's soul. Odd scene but in the end pretty cool


    What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the accent, the voices and the pronunciation of many of the names and words.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    gives a new meaning to getting stoned.

    John Rain is back. And “the most charismatic assassin since James Bond” (San Francisco Chronicle) is up against his most formidable enemy yet: the nexus of political, military, media, and corporate factions known only as the Oligarchy. When legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, Rain can’t resist the offer: a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America. But the opposition on this job is going to be too much for even Rain to pull it off alone.

    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.

    For two thousand years, cadavers have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.

    After reading this I feel compelled to donate my body to science and am grateful for all who have done so in order to make us safer from people driving to soldiers in combat. And I am thankful for those who dedicate themselves who do all the work outlined in the book. Who knew there were so many vocations related to dealing with the dead. The history and interesting information about historical treatments of bodies was interesting. The audio was a bit cheap sounding in spots but don't think it took away from the enjoyment.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.
