    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

  • Back to Blood: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (20 hrs and 52 mins)

    Story
    (425)

    As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay - with officer Nestor Camacho on board - Tom Wolfe is off and running. Here is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous best-selling novels, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was broken up into pieces and it was hard to follow the thread. When I got to the end, I really didn't care how it worked out.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Performance was okay, but there was lots of stuttering when characters talked or laughed. The laughter was ingenious.


    Do you think Back to Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Wasn't the worst book I ever read, but not the best either.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    Story
    (1607)

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.
