    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    This was without a doubt one of the best Dave R. novels so far. It held you and gave you a graphic image of Southern Louisiana and the human condition, not to mention the hurt man visits on man. I love all of Mr. Burke's books and was not disappointed.

    Scotland Yard’s new chief inspector Nicholas Drummond is on the first flight to New York when he learns his colleague, Elaine York, the "minder" of the Crown Jewels for the "Jewel of the Lion" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was found murdered. Then the centerpiece of the exhibit, the infamous Koh-i-Noor Diamond, is stolen from the Queen Mother’s crown. Drummond, American-born but raised in the UK, is a dark, dangerous, fast-rising star in the Yard who never backs down. And this case is no exception.

    What did you like best about The Final Cut? What did you like least?

    I am a fan of many of Ms Coulter's novels, and this one was ok, but the narration was so annoying it was hard to concentrate on the story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a different narrator ~ Simon Prebble, Davina Porter ~ anyone but who is doing it.

    Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with it. But Summer Place has other plans....

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

    Yes. It is so entertaining. A real nailbiter. I guessed who the bad guy was but not the circumstances.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Supernaturals?

    When all was revealed.


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

    He gave great nuance to each character.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Audible so adds the Event series by this author.

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    I have read this book twice and listened to it twice. I love it!!! I also thing Frank Muller is an excellent narrator. When I see his name along with Scott Brick and George Guidall I know it will be a great listen. Jack is a unique individual and he is determined.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    This was an excellent read/listen. I guess it was kind of predictable as I guessed the end before I got there :-). I completely enjoyed it and look forward to sequels. The narration, as usual, was super. Of course I am a little biased as I love all Mr. Baldacci's books.

    The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah — known as the Twelfth Imam — has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Christopher Lane?

    Have read Mr. Rosenberg before and enjoyed his books, but this was more than anticipated. I did not expect or enjoy 13 hours of proselytizing. Mr. Lane was excellent.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joel C. Rosenberg again?

    probably not
