    As usual, a fast paced book with well developed characters in the series. I could not put the book down. I love the Sookie Stackhouse series!

    As usual, a fast paced book with well developed characters in the series. I could not put the book down. The narrator is the best, too.

    Has the nightmare finally run it's course? Not for Joe Ash. Deep inside he knows the incubus Karl Movick.

    Alex says: "the worst reader"
    "the worst reader"
    Overall

    I did not look closely enough to see that it is NOT a sequel to Diplomatic Immunity by Lois M Bujold. The reader is the worst I have ever heard. I have tried 4 times to get into the book, and cannot get past the flat pedantic reading where all the characters sound the same. I always adjust to readers, and this is a first. Too bad, the writing may be ok. The writer has no regard for the talent a good reader can bring to an audio book. It should be re-released with an actor reading it.

    New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris thrills listeners with the fourth book of her spectacular Sookie Stackhouse series. Driving home from work, barmaid and telepath Sookie Stackhouse discovers vampire and area sheriff Eric on the side of the road missing his shirt, his shoes and his memories. Featuring vampires, werewolves and magic galore, Dead to the World will satisfy any listener's craving for the supernatural.

    Brandon says: "Oooooooooh Booooooooy!"
    "Better and better"
    Overall

    At first, I thought Sookie was a bit too naive as a woman, but her character has evolved along with the others in the series. I now can't wait until the next book and try to dole it out as a treat to myself. I completed this book in two days, and the fast pace at the end kept me up the last night. The series just gets better and better! Thank you Charlaine Harris!

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Karen says: "Quirky Fun, Delightful listen"
    "Fun well written and narrated"
    Overall

    Great characters, adventure with enough humor, action and suspense to make it fun! Perfect escape fiction!

    Amazing what bodily injury could do for a man. A fall from a racehorse had left brilliant jockey Sid Halley dangerously depressed, with a wrecked hand and the need for a new career. And now a bullet wound was helping him find one. He'd been with a detective agency since his racing accident, but it wasn't until some two-bit hoodlum drilled a slug into his side that he was sent out on a case of his own. That was where he met Zanna Martin, a woman who just might make life worth living again.

    Overall

    I am a Dick Francis fan because his plots have the balance of mystery, suspense and comfortable characters and at a nice pace. This is a typically good story. My one complaint would be that the reader sounded so much older than the characters.

    Facing a freakish May freeze that threatens her vineyard, Lucie Montgomery is forced to hire a helicopter to fly over the vines warming the arctic air next to the grapes. But her luck in salvaging the harvest runs out when she discovers the body of Georgia Greenwood, a controversial local political candidate, lying near the fields.

    Terrie Munce says: "wishing there was more"
    "Slow Southern comfort-but nice"
    Overall

    Southern accents, bits of history and several plot components make this a good cozy mystery. Not fast paced, but enjoyable.

    Jason Steadman is a 30-year-old sales executive living in Boston and working for an electronics giant, a competitor to Sony and Panasonic. He's a witty, charismatic guy who's well liked at the office, but he lacks the "killer instinct" necessary to move up the corporate ladder. To the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks as if his career has hit a ceiling. Jason's been sidelined.

    Emma says: "Mediocre at best"
    "Great Finder story!"
    Overall

    Typical Finder corporate intrigue plot, except that this time I liked the protagonist. A bit predictable, but still enjoyable. Scott Brick makes his books a good listen.

    In this hot and steamy mystery, Tennyson is an actor struggling to hang on to his career and redeem his sex-for-pay history, which estranged him from his family, especially his father, a decorated LAPD captain who raised Tennyson to call him "Sir". Now, in the wake of his father's sudden stroke, Tennyson has to save himself from taking the fall for a murder. In the process, he discovers his hidden talents - the hard way.

    James Gordon says: "What's The Beef?"
    "Pure entertainment"
    Overall

    Ok, it got a bit spicey, but it is JUST ENTERTAINMENT, not a study in literature. I was pleasantly surprised, and simply enjoyed the whole book. I enjoyed the Agatha Christie style of so many suspects. The reader's voice was not what I would expect, but fine. I find I adapt to readers I don't enjoy at first. Try it! It is just a bit of a twist on the typical characters, professions, and background.
