    Dr. Temperance Brennan looks forward to her first vacation in years. She's almost out the door when the bones start appearing. Most puzzling of all are the bones discovered at a remote farm outside Charlotte. The remains seem to be of animal origin, but Tempe is shocked when she gets them to her lab. Why are the X rays and DNA so perplexing? Who is trying to keep Tempe from the answers? Someone is following her, and must be stopped before it's too late.

    Sara says: "Not as good"
    "VERY bare bones, indeed."
    Overall

    I didn't bother to download the unabridged version when it was offered at no further cost. The abridged version was quite tedious enough for me. No suspense. No plot twists. No intellectual challenges. Even the love interest was cornball and pedestrian. Yawn....

    Unlock a new level of fear. It is well known among law enforcement personnel that murderers can be categorized on a scale of 25 levels of evil, from the naive opportunists starting out at Level 1 to the organized, premeditated torture-murderers who inhabit Level 25. What almost no one knows is that a new category of killer is in the process of being defined. Only one man belongs to this group. His targets: Anyone. His methods: Unlimited. His alias: Sqweegel. His classification: Level 26.

    Katie says: "People are being way too harsh..."
    "Amateurish first novel"
    Overall

    Save your credits;this one stinks on ice. John Glover's talents as a narrator are wasted on this rubbish. Derivative and dull. Even the online R-rated re-enactments can't save this dog.

    Greenwich, southeast London. The Met's crack murder squad is called out by nervous CID detectives to a grim discovery. Five bodies have been found, all young women, all ritualistically murdered, dumped on wasteland near the Millennium Dome. When a post-mortem examination reveals a singular, horrific signature linking the victims, officers realize that they are on the trail of the most dangerous offender known to the force: a sexual serial killer.

    Dionne says: "great! get it now!"
    "Very well done"
    Overall

    This is an outstanding contemporary British police procedural. It grabbed me in the first five minutes and held on fiercely through the last five. I guessed whodunit midway through, but that's not what this novel is about. It runs much deeper than that.

    The narration was brilliant. I'll be watching for other audiobooks voiced by this reader with anticipation.

    Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. Her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas Strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life.

    Maxine says: "hilarious"
    "Plum hilarious!"
    Overall

    Stephanie Plum and her sidekick, Lula, are laugh-out-loud hilarious. Stephanie is no superhero bounty hunter (her gun is usually at home in the cookie jar when she needs it most), but she always gets her man. The action is fast. The romance is hot and humorous at the same time. Even the villains are quirky and amusing. If you enjoy a bit of chaos and wreckage, Stephanie always finds a way to utterly destroy one or more cars in evermore spectacular fashion.
    I can't understand why these books have never been made into movies. (With Jill Hennessy from "Crossing Jordan" as Stephanie Plum and Antonio Banderas as Ranger...simply delicious).
    Listen and laugh!
