    Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties", bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed all of the Alex cross books this one was very emotional to me. I don't think you will be disappointed by buying this book or listening to it either.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Alex Cross, Run?

    When John came to the door with the locket to tell Alex they found Ava.


    What does Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like hearing the different characters tell the the two parts of the story it's easier to follow along.


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

    Yes the part about the foster child Ava and her drug problems because that touches our 14 year olds today.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must purchase!!!!

  • Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By Piper Kerman
    • Narrated By Cassandra Campbell

    Story
    (3164)

    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

    Mark says: "My favorite book of the year, so far"
    "A great prison story!!"

    Where does Orange Is the New Black rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was different from what I usually listen to but I really enjoyed it.


    What other book might you compare Orange Is the New Black to and why?

    There isn't one I can think of.


    What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

    She was very entertaining I enjoyed her narrating very much.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    How she called the white girls that talked and acted African American little M&M's. I hope this doesn't offend anyone!!:)


    Any additional comments?

    The book is not like the show on Netflix. The book has a happy ending the show puts a lot of drama in the story. Both are great I wasn't disappointed in either.
