    In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the 22-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the district attorney. A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto.

    Joel says: "Another excellent Connelly novel."
    "Five Star Listen"
    Overall

    Harry Bosch at his best. Out of all my listens to Michael Connelly, I found this to be his best work. I enjoyed from the beginning to end. If you have read or heard his other Harry Bosch novels, you will like that many of the characters return.
    A few loose ends, but I promise that you will not want to turn this off.

    Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, D.C., Police Department when an unknown man gunned down his wife in front of him. His desire for vengeance was placed on hold as he raised his children himself. But when a case triggers a connection to his wife's death, Alex may finally have a chance to catch the killer.

    Terri says: "I'm cross too"
    "Loved It"
    Overall

    To each his own I suppose. This was my first Alex Cross book. If this is bad (as others indicate) I can't wait to listen to others. I found the book to be well written and the story line as believable as most other crime novels. The ending could have a bit more suspense, but I liked it the same. Narration was one of the best I have heard so far. This best seller is worth the investment and time. Cheers!

    Senior FBI agent Nick Pellisante is closing in on the notorious mob boss "The Electrician", when the scheduled sting goes spectacularly awry. Two FBI agents are dead, the boss is wounded, and Pellisante vows the Electrician's next move will be from a jail cell.

    Julie says: "Judge and Jury"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    My last review of this narrator, Joe Montegna was pretty bad. When I first started to listen to Judge & Jury I thought this was going to be a bad one also. Much to my surprise I found this read to be excellent. This is a easy listen with the plot following a logical sequence. Character development could have been more detailed but it is up to you to use your imagination. If you like the good guys versus the evil guys, you will enjoy this book.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Great!"
    Overall

    Superb, exciting and rewarding. OK, so I have this commute every day about an hour each way. Every so often a book comes along that I don?t want to get out of the car. This is one of those books. The character build up takes the right amount of time to where you can feel their emotions and at the same time it didn?t drag along. Of all my listens, I rate this in the top five. You won?t be disappointed!

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?

    Anthony says: "Most important book of the decade"
    "A Must read If You Have Kids"
    Overall

    There is a lot of obvious insight in this book. Fact- Everyone is out to eat your lunch. While you are sleeping, someone else is just waking and they are trying to do what you do, faster, cheaper, and with higher quality. It is just reality and our kids growing up in the USA had better have parents who will prepare them for this new challenge. While our kids are playing with their X-Box's and I-Pods, our future competitors are learning and getting ready to compete.

    I thought the reader did a great job. The accents used were fine with me, afterall this is not fiction but more info download. The speaker spoke with clarity and emotion.

    Very good book.

    In Robert Ludlum's ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world's imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum's own best-selling novels, his best-selling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum's The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to best-selling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy.

    Linda says: "It sure reads like a Ludlum book!"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    Really enjoyed listening to this novel. Found myself engulfed on any free moment I had. Highly recommend. Scott Bick is wonderful to listen to and the story keeps you wanting more.

    When Spenser's closest ally, Hawk, is brutally injured and left for dead while protecting bookie Luther Gillespie, Spenser embarks on an epic journey to rehabilitate his friend in body and soul. Hawk, always proud, has never been dependent on anyone. Now he is forced to make connections: to the medical technology that will ensure his physical recovery, and to reinforce the tenuous emotional ties he has to those around him.

    Dan says: "Parody of Parker--Pass it by!"
    "Not his best"
    Overall

    Story line was unbelievable, like some kind of a ?western good guy bad guy? in the 21st century. You better like the phrases ?He said? and ?She said? because these phrases are repeated so much it will drive you to suicide, which is probably, the story line of his next book. This constant repetition really took away from the story. I think they did this because the differences between the voices of the characters from the narrator is very poor.
