    A German Shepherd police dog witnesses a murder and if his owner - an Iraq war vet and former cop-turned-thief - is convicted of the crime, the dog could be put down. Few rival Andy Carpenter's affection for dogs, and he decides to represent the poor canine. As Andy struggles to convince a judge that this dog should be set free, he discovers that the dog and his owner have become involved unwittingly in a case of much greater proportions than the one they've been charged with.

    Rosenfelt and Gardner are a great combination. Loved this Andy Carpenter book as much as the previous. This is my favorite series on Audible. All I can says is if you haven't read the series give it a try and if you have you're gonna love this one too.

    Investigator Wayne Weston is found dead of an apparent suicide in his home in an upscale Cleveland suburb, and his wife and six-year-old daughter are missing. Weston’s father insists that private investigators Lincoln Perry and Joe Pritchard take the case to exonerate his son and find his granddaughter and daughter-in-law. As they begin to work, they discover there is much more to the situation than has been described in the prevalent media reports.

    While Bernie continues his struggle to pay the bills, Chet - with his sharp nose and even sharper teeth - keeps bringing down the perps. Told from Chet's perspective and featuring the humorous ramblings of a dog, Thereby Hangs a Tail is another winner.

    I enjoy these books because its fun to hear the "dogs perspective" and it makes looking for the bad guy a little different. If you don't like dogs you probably won't like this book.

    Story

    The story line was good but I wish I had gotten the abridged version. Way too many details and complete conversations that didn't add anything to the story but time. I got bored about three-quarters through and went online to see how it ended.

    Story

    I was so disappointed in this book. Thought it sounded like a great new series. The main character, the Dr., needed therapy. She was whiney with so much anxiety regarding her daughter it was beyond believable and ruined the story for me. The basic storyline was interesting but need a new therapist!

    Arlen Wagner has an awful gift: he can see death in the eyes of men before it strikes. He's never wrong. So when Arlen awakens on a train one hot Florida night and sees death's telltale sign in the eyes of his fellow passengers, he tries to warn them. Only 19-year-old Paul Brickhill believes him, and the two abandon the train, hoping to escape certain death. They continue south, but soon are stranded at The Cypress House - an isolated Gulf Coast boarding house run by the beautiful Rebecca Cady - directly in the path of an approaching hurricane.

    This story was just not that exciting to me. I think its more of a "man's" story. It was easy to finish but was glad I could move on to something else. The narration was good.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Roger says: "review of Abby Cooper series"
    "Yeah! Found a new friend."
    Overall

    I am so glad I took a chance on this book. Don' t let the psychic part keep you from reading the book. It is realisticly incorporated in the book but isn't the focal point. Abby does do psychic readings and gets guidance from her "guides" which made this book very interesting and believable. There is just a little bit of romance but not enough to ruin a good mystery. Will be listening to the second in this series.

    As a prosecutor in Houston, Penn Cage sent killers to death row. But as mayor of his hometown - Natchez, Mississippi - Penn will face his most dangerous threat. Urged by old friends to try to restore this fading jewel of the Old South, Penn has ridden into office on a tide of support for change. But in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling, and now five steamboats float on the river beside the old slave market, like props from Gone With the Wind.

    Corinne says: "Not his best but Iles can't be bad"
    "Too Graphic"
    Overall

    This book only got a three stars from me because it was so graphic. I didn't want to listen, in detail, to the tourture of dogs and women. The story was good, well written, interesting and with good narration...just a little too much detail.

    This was just ok, nothing exciting or too special for me. It was easy to listen too and the story was fine just kind of bland.
