    Parker, the ruthless antihero of Richard Stark's eponymous mystery novels, is one of the most unforgettable characters in hardboiled noir. Lauded by critics for his taut realism, unapologetic amorality, and razor-sharp prose-style, Stark is a master of crime writing, his books as influential as any in the genre. Parker goes under the knife in The Man with the Getaway Face, changing his face to escape the mob and a contract on his life. Along the way he scores his biggest heist yet.

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    Story

    This is a wonderful story and the bonus is that it is unabridged. But the reader is really poor, you can't tell the difference between characters, even male and female is not discernible. Really ruins a perfect love stpry.

    Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. As an unexpected friendship with a woman slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people - even those she loves and trusts most - don’t want that to happen.

    Story

    The story and reading of the story by the three readers was fabulous. However, I did NOT like the music. I did not like her voice, the music, the words or the volume. I was excited to hear the music because Jodi Picoult herself asked us to hear the music and to put the context into the stoory, but I had to fast forward through the songs ultimately.

    This narrator was lovely when speaking for women but terrible on male voices. It really affected the quality of the listen.

    Beautiful and self-confident businesswoman Rusty Carlson was hurt, terrified and alone with a man she feared. But one thing was certain – she would surely die without his help. Vietnam vet Cooper Landry had a deep-rooted grudge against beautiful women like Rusty. Experience had taught him they were takers. But he’d survived far worse dangers, and this time he’d be damned if he’d let her risk his chance for survival.

    I was sorry I did not realize that this was one of Brown's first efforts. the story was predictable and trite with no plot twists that she has become famous for.

    Story

    Why is this elderly person doing the narration for this book? I cannot listen to it ... Lee Reston is in her 40's and but the reader is just too old to make it believable.
    The book and story are fabulous.

    And HEY - why can't we get the rest of Layverly Spencer UNABRIDGED?

    In is 1876, in the still-wild Dakota territories...Sarah Merritt arrives in the mining town of Dead-wood, intent on finding her runaway younger sister Addie and starting a newspaper. When she sets up her printing press in the middle of Main Street, she finds herself at loggerheads with the handsome, headstrong Sheriff Noah Campbell, who places her under arrest. From the battle of wills between Sarah and the Sheriff emerges a story of innocence lost and regained and a love destined to overcome all odds.

    Patrice says: "Love the book HATE the Audible"
    "Abridgement of Forgiving by LaVyrle Spencer"
    Overall

    The book is wonderful, but this abridgement makes the story trite and meaningless. Why would anyone abridge such an author? Every part of the original story is necessary to get the entire picture and beauty of the book. the reader is good.
