    When Harry left Oslo again for Hong Kong - fleeing the traumas of life as a cop - he thought he was there for good. But then the unthinkable happened. The son of the woman he loved, lost, and still loves is arrested for murder: Oleg, the boy Harry helped raise but couldn't help deserting when he fled. Harry has come back to prove that Oleg is not a killer. Barred from rejoining the police force, he sets out on a solitary, increasingly dangerous investigation that takes him deep into the world of the most virulent drug to ever hit the streets.

    Fran Murphy says: "Jo Nesbo hates Harry Hole"
    "Just as good as all the Nesbo books."

    Nesbo's books are always entertaining and this one is no exception. Harry Hole is quite a character.

    At seventeen, David "Lizard" Hochmeyer is nearly seven feet tall, a star quarterback, and Princeton-bound. His future seems all but assured until his parents are mysteriously murdered, leaving Lizard and his older sister, Kate, adrift and alone. In a mansion across the pond from their Connecticut home lives the world’s greatest ballerina, Sylphide, and her rock star husband, whose own disasters intersect with Lizard’s - and Kate’s - in the most intimate and surprising ways.

    Story

    Don't waste your time and money. the story wanders and never sees to get anwhere. You don't care about any of the characters. The worst part is the narration. The tone, the flow, the voice are just awful. If there is a plot it gets lost in all the time that is covered. Lost interest early on and just kept listening hoping for something that never came.

    The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

    Susan says: "Fun, thought-provoking, mysterious.... and FUN !"
    "Clever story, well read."

    Story

    Laughed out loud several times and was totally won over by this quirky story. Don't be put off with the title, it's a charming book with surprising elements, winning characters, and a plot that keeps you listening long after you need to turn it off.

    It is the summer of 1976 in Oxfordshire, England, and someone is trying to kill Sally Gilmartin. The only person she can trust is her daughter, Ruth, a young single mother struggling with her own demons. Now Sally must tell her daughter the truth: She is actually Eva Delectorskaya, a Russian émigré recruited for the British Secret Service in 1939.

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

    I always enjoy Boyd's books and this was another good one. It was a great story and was well read by the narrator.
