    In The Vendetta Defense, Lisa Scottoline, New York Times best-selling author of Moment of Truth and Mistaken Identity, tells a wonderfully rich story of past sins, love, and justice.

    "Chick Drama"
    Overall

    I liked this story line a lot. Very creative! The narrator was great, especially with Italian Accents. Problem was a ton of corny humer obviously aimed at female readers. Males may want to consider this but I still gave it 3 stars. Without the corny stuff it would have been a 4+ for me.

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    Would you listen to The Affair again? Why?

    I think my headline says it all. This book had everything we love about Jack Reacher in spades. Really kept me guessing!

    An eccentric boarding house denizen winds up dead; his presumed killer, a fellow boarder, has vanished. The baffling case unfolds through the testimony of witnesses, who are themselves suspect.

    Really well narrated. Worth twice the price just to hear the actors and actresses preform.

    St. Patrick's Day, New York City. Everyone is celebrating, but everyone is in for a shock. Born into the heat and hatred of the Northern Ireland conflict, IRA man Brian Flynn has masterminded a brilliant terrorist act: the seizure of Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Among his hostages: the woman Brian Flynn once loved, a former terrorist turned peace activist.

    Spencer K. Collins says: "Not even close to DeMille's other books"
    "Can Demille write a bad book?"
    Overall

    Apparently not! And, they all are different. No common formula etc. How does he dream this stuff up? Starts fast stays fast, in that sense it's classic DeMille, if there is such a thing.

    When John Sutter's aristocratic wife killed her mafia don lover, John left America and set out in his sailboat on a three-year journey around the world, eventually settling in London. Now, 10 years later, he has come home to the Gold Coast, that stretch of land on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America, to attend the imminent funeral of an old family servant.

    James B says: "Brilliant Conclusion to Gold Coast"
    "Great Sequel!!"
    Overall

    Do listen to Gold coast first. DeMille himself considered it his best work. Like most DeMille books it's nothing like any other. I couldn't put either book down!

    He is a good man, a brilliant corporate executive, an honest, handsome family man admired by men and desired by women. But a lifetime ago Ben Tyson was a lieutenant in Vietnam.There the men under his command committed a murderous atrocity -- and together swore never to tell the world what they had done. Now the press, army justice, and the events he tried to forget have caught up with Ben Tyson.

    Diana says: "Nelson does it again"
    "A Must Read for anyone interested in Viet Nam"
    Overall

    As usual, DeMille grabs your interest in the first paragraph and holds it till the last line. Always a different plot too. If I have any complaint it is that voiced by Robert Lewis Stephenson after reading Crime and Punishment; upon completion, I felt like I finally recovered from a near fatal illness. But, I couldn't put it down.

    Paddy Meehan is no stranger to murder - as a reporter she lives at crime scenes - but nothing has prepared her for this visit from the police. Her former boyfriend and fellow journalist Terry Patterson has been found hooded and shot through the head. Paddy knows she will be of little help - she had not seen Terry in more than six months. So she is bewildered to learn that in his will he has left her his house and several suitcases full of notes.

    Lehua says: "Another winner"
    "Grrreat Storrry!"
    Overall

    Note that my title is an attempt at sounding Scottish. This story not only takes place in Scotland but it is read by an actual Scot. Perhaps she has a Glasgow accent with a bit of "Cockney" English but a great and intriguing accent that grows on you as the book proceeds. Don't put this one down too soon, give it time to grow and you will love it. Interestingly, this is one of the only books written and read by a woman that I've ever really loved. It is NOT a "Chick Book" even if she is a single mother with the usual weepy moments about her son!

    Something very strange -- and sinister -- is going on in the Russian woods at Borodino. In a place called Mrs. Ivanova's Charm School, young KGB agents are being taught by American POW's how to be model citizens of the USA. The Soviet goal -- to infiltrate the United States undetected. When an unsuspecting American tourist stumbles upon this secret, he sets in motion a CIA investigation that will reveal horrifying police state savagery and superpower treachery.

    Char says: "Incredibly Good"
    "DeMille just can't write a bad book!"
    Overall

    My title says it all. His books start fast and stay fast. This one will keep you on the edge of your seat for sure. What amazes me is that all his books are different, not just similar plots warmed over.

    A careful, methodical young data analyst for a California insurance company, John Walker knows when people will marry, at what age they will most likely have children, and when they will die. All signs point to a long successful career---until Max Stillman, a gruff security consultant, appears without warning at the office. It seems a colleague with whom Walker once had an affair has disappeared after paying a very large death benefit to an impostor.

    Julie says: "My favorite book from one of my favorite authors."
    "Can this man write a bad book?"
    Overall

    Starts fast, stays fast, and like most Perry novels, comes up with a totally unique premis.

    Jane Whitefield is a name to be whispered like a prayer - a shadow woman who rescues the helpless and the hunted when their enemies leave them no place to hide. Now, with the bone-deep cunning of her Native American forebears, she arranges a vanishing act for Pete Hatcher, a Las Vegas gambling executive. It should be a piece of cake, but she doesn't yet know about Earl and Linda - professional destroyers who will cash in if Hatcher dies, killers who love to kill...slowly.

    Overall

    I didn't know Thomas Perry could write a boring book. I had to quit half way through when it skipped several chapters between part 1 & part 2 but I was ready to quit. Great premis that just didn't hold my attention like a Perry novel usually does. It talked about "feelings" so much I thought a woman wrote it. Also the reader, a lady, just could not make her voice sound like a man so she should have just read without "acting". Sorry Thomas, I've loved all your other books.

    This is Perry at his best. Keeps moving. Read this and then the sequel "Sleeping Dogs".
