    She's young. She's beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston medical examiner Cat Novak, betrays no secrets - except for a notebook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Cat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the city streets: a shadowy madman without mercy or apparent motive. The police are sceptical. The mayor won't listen. And Cat's chief suspect is one of the city's most prominent citizens.

    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    They all were Ms. Ericksen is a good reader to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book when it was first released in the 90s. I was enjoying listening to it until Ms. Ericksen did the main male voice. (the rich guy) after Cat car was stolen. From that point on I felt like I was listening to the murder books from JD Robb. The love story line and the voices were the same.

    James Patterson's scariest, sexiest stand-alone thriller since The Quickie. Ben isn't like most people. Unable to control his racing thoughts, he's a man consumed by his obsessions: movies, motorcycles, presidential trivia - and Diana Hotchkiss, a beautiful woman Ben knows he can never have. When Diana is found dead outside her apartment, Ben's infatuation drives him on a hunt to find out what happened to the love of his life.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone that is looking to replace a sleeping pill


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself seem to be good. But the main person kept going back to parts of old movies. OMG I wanted to to kill him just to end the one going bits from other movies


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His tones were ok, but the whole thing just drag on. So it made his voice like nails on a blackboard


    What character would you cut from Mistress?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    I have always love James patterson, I have read all this books with the exception of the science ones. I cannt wait for the next Private. I hate I wasted a credit on this book. I try to listen to most of it with the hope it would get better. THANK GOD I CAN RETURN IT. THANK GOD.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was a hard book to listen to. The narrated made me think the setting was in England.
    I can even tell you if the book was any good, the narration was so bad that I just could finish it.


    Has Dead Silence turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No because in error I read the second and the third book and they were great. So I order the first book and I couldnt make it past the three chapter


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was the wrong one for this book.

    Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan’s mission is to bring closure to the families whose loved ones have vanished. She knows their anguish - her own beloved daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old. It is only recently that this mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace. Now Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers that Eve always longed for. His 25-year-old son may or may not be dead, and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence.

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

    In the passed I could wait for a new book. But lately with the Eve, Joe, Bonnie books the ending just drop off , like this one. I read so much that I have to reread this book once the new one is released so I know what to expect.


    What about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance did you like?

    Very good reader, very good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When joe had to pick between going to Eve or Jane. We never feel any close bond between Jane and Joe. It either Joe and Eve or Eve and Jane. In this book you can feel the bond.


    Any additional comments?

    In most book you are happy that it leaves you waiting for more, but this one just didn't clearly ans questions. I didnt like that.
