    Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial are both investigating high-profile murders in Las Vegas. A celebrity is assassinated during a fling with a prostitute, and a young boy is killed in a brutal hit-and-run incident. When the cases converge, Jonathan and Serena find themselves racing the clock against a determined serial killer and searching for a connection to the unsolved murder of a showgirl years earlier.

    Story

    This book was nearly as good as the first one in the series. It seemed the ending was at least an hour or more too late. When I thought it should be over, I checked how many minutes I had left and knew I was not even close. I liked the narration, I thought he did a good job. Still a 4 star rating: good story, good characters, and looking forward to the third in the series.

    Tennis has been very good to sports agent Myron Bolitar. He represents two of the hottest young stars in the game. But when his female player is murdered in broad daylight at the U.S. Open and his male player becomes the prime suspect, Myron's got a whole new match to win. His investigation leads to an old murder, the mob, a crooked senator, a jealous mother, and someone who's determined to shut down his search for good.

    Story

    When I first started this book, I did not think I would like it. The tennis thing was weird, since I have no interest in it. The story took off though. I laughed out loud in several places and I really liked the dry voice of the narrator, he added to the story. I am going to continue listening to this series as opposed to reading the books.

    Just After Sunset - call it dusk, call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for Stephen King.

    Story

    I thought this book was fantastic. I could not pick a favorite story. Each one had an element that made you grin, shake your head, or think "he's back". A few gave me chills, a couple made me think deeply. One brought tears to my eyes. Several made me laugh. All of these stories were so much like the good old Stephen King, and all the narrators were dead on. I recommend this to any one who thinks King has lost his touch. I hated to finish this book.

    WHEN HER BOOKS ARE GOOD, THEY ARE REALLY GOOD. WHEN THEY ARE BAD, THEY ARE REALLY BAD, LIKE THIS ONE. I FELT PREACHED TO AND THAT WAS A TURN OFF. I DID NOT CARE ABOUT ANY OF THE CHARACTERS. THEY WERE SO WHINEY. THE VOICE FOR MAGGIE WAS VERY ANNOYING. I DID FINISH THE BOOK, BUT IT WAS A STRUGGLE.

    In a riveting debut thriller that has drawn comparisons to masters of the genre like Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Brian Freeman weaves obsession, sex, and revenge into a story that grips the reader with vivid characters and shocking plot twists from the first minute to the last.

    On a frigid December night, Karen sits at the edge of Philadelphia's Schuylkill River, dressed in a flowing gown, like a visitor from the distant past. A beautiful and shining young woman, she gazes up at a bone-white winter moon like a fairytale princess. At first glance, one might not even notice that she is dead, coated in a patina of ice. Homicide cops Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano take the lead on the case, uncovering a plethora of eerie clues, each more warped and spine-chilling than the last.

    I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHY THIS BOOK COST ME TWO CREDITS. IT WAS NOT EVEN WORTH ONE. IT WAS REALLY THAT BAD. I HAD TO FAST FORWARD TOWARD THE END. THE FIRST BOOK OF THE SERIES, THE ROSARY GIRLS, WAS GREAT. GOOD STORY,INTERESTING CHARACTERS. THIS BOOK WAS PREDICTABLE AND THE CHARACTERS WERE CHEESEY. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.
