The Vatican sends a priest to discredit a televangelist that is speaking in tongues and making predictions that seem to be true. Never mind that the bible thumper is his estranged uncle or that the Vatican has falsified the background information given to its representative. The Church wants Reverend Tim Trinity exposed as a fraud and organized gambling wants him eliminated. As his nephew reconnects with him and tries to keep him alive, the Church factions are working against them and organized gambling honchos have put out a hit on him. This is fast paced and a fun ride from beginning to end.
Luke Daniels narration is great; he has the televangelist routine perfect!
I enjoy the Karin Slaughter series.
This is totally different!
The story unfolds and the background information is released slowly leading to the conclusion. The culprit is easily identifiable, but the conclusion is a bit of a twist. It leaves me with a satisfied feeling at the conclusion of a murder mystery instead of the depravity of some stories. One hopes that the perpetrator gets justice sometime in the future.
Wayne Knight does an outstanding job of narrating. Each character's voice and personality are reccognizable.
Rosenfelt does it again! I listened to almost the whole book on a long plane ride. I never tire of Andy Carpenter's sarcasm and Grover Gardner's narration.
In this episode there is a major conspiracy underway, lots of deaths in attempts to cover loose ends, and someone close to Andy is accused and held for a murder. Andy's usual entourage is here, too. Everyone joins in to see that justice is served and the bad guys are thwarted.
The publisher's summary tells more than I would; I don't like spoilers.
This is Connelly and narrator Len Cariou at their best. I recommend this piece of Bosch's past.
Good old boy ranchers hire hitmen to silence ecoterrorists. Joe Pickett's investigation into poaching pulls him into the "war" and he ends up running for his life.
I do enjoy the series' western setting and mindset. It's a nice break from a big city with rampant crimes and hardened detectives. I will continue on to the next book.
David Chandler's narration is well suited to these books.
I have listened to all of this series available at Audible. However, this is probably the most disappointing.
I always hesitate to discuss the plot as I dislike spoilers. Do read the publisher's summary. Although thorough in character and murder case development, the story seems to just plod along. There are many components and at least 6 possible perpetrators. I had identified the guilty party long before the reveal. If you are an action and violence junky then this probably isn't for you.
Next, the narrator is new to the series. His interpretations of some characters is ok, some bland, and one is just plain odd. The narration can be distracting at times, but is adequate the majority of the listen.
If you are a Diamond fan, then this is a decent listen. If you are new to the series, you might be wise to pick another episode.
Even with forced bed rest, Tess can't seem to curb her curiosity. This mystery has a "Rear Window" feel to it. However, in this story, she has a new investigator, her friend Whitney, and the internet to help dig into the mystery. I enjoyed the update on Tess's life and another PI case.
Linda Emond is an excellent narrator.
Yes, there is murder and mystery, but the odd characters and overall setting in a summer resort town make it a fun listen.
I will definitely move on in the series.
Jeff Woodman adds to the fun with the narration. His portrayal of the "perky blonde" thing and the small town cops is consistent and amusing.
Reacher is in the Army. He is asked to do some undercover investigation. He easily puts the pieces together, identifies an information leak, thwarts the tough guys, and returns to his post.
Again, Dick Hill is perfect for this series.
This is another glimpse of young Reacher. He is on his way to see brother Joe. In his typical style, he does not do the expected. Trouble finds him, there are physical altercations, and he helps the FBI.
Dick Hill is always superb in his interpretation.
This story in its entirety is a "bonus" at the end of The Affair.
I knew immediately that I had heard it before. I am very disappointed that Audible released it as a single later.
Reacher is 13 and newly relocated with his Marine Corps family. Trouble and mystery found him even at this early age: he crushes a (kid) bully and solves two mysteries.
Dick Hill, as always, is an excellent narrator.
