    My daughter loves Geronimo Stilton, and my husband and I enjoy them too. There's a lot of humor in the writing and in the performance.

    Accused of spying for Israel, Isaac Amin's real crime is simply being Jewish, which gets him tossed into jail after the Iranian Revolution feeds the flames of Islamic fanaticism. As Isaac endures the brutality of imprisonment, his wife fights despair while searching for answers. Hoping to prevent further injustices, his precocious daughter steals files from the man in charge of the prison. And half a world away in Brooklyn, Isaac's adult son suffers when his family's financial support vanishes.

    I really loved this book. The narrator does a great job with the multiple perspectives and brings the lovely writing to life. I learned a lot about the Iranian Revolution too.

    the sleepy rural town of Painters Mill, Ohio, the Amish and "English" residents have lived side by side for two centuries. But 16 years ago, a series of brutal murders shattered the peaceful farming community. In the aftermath of the violence, the town was left with a sense of fragility, a loss of innocence. Kate Burkholder, a young Amish girl, survived the terror of the Slaughterhouse Killer but came away from its brutality with the realization that she no longer belonged with the Amish.

    What would have made Sworn to Silence better?

    The plot was so predictable and the language is full of cliches and awkward dialog. These things could have been improved.


    What was most disappointing about Linda Castillo’s story?

    I figured it out about a third of the way through, and I usually don't figure mysteries out.


    What didn’t you like about Kathleen McInerney’s performance?

    Awkwardly read.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I guess the Amish twist is sort of interesting, but there are so many better mysteries out there.

    On a freezing December night, with a full moon hovering in the black sky over New York City, two people are brutally murdered, the death scenes marked by eerie, matching calling cards: moon-faced clocks investigators fear ticked away the victims' last moments on earth. Renowned criminologist Lincoln Rhyme immediately identifies the clock distributor and has the chilling realization that the killer, who has dubbed himself the Watchmaker, has more murders planned in the hours to come.

    Laura says: "Another great puzzle!"
    "Almost gave up, glad I didn't"
    Overall

    I haven't read one of Jeffery Deaver's books in a long time. I got this one because I love Joe Mantegna, and his narration didn't disappoint.

    As for Deaver, he is a pretty good writer for the thriller genre, and the characters of Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are interesting as always. Toward the middle, the plot almost made me give up because it was so ridiculous, but there were more twists to come and the ending was satisfying eventually.

    Larry Ott and Silas “32” Jones were unlikely boyhood friends. Larry was the child of lower middle-class white parents, Silas the son of a poor, single, black mother - their worlds as different as night and day. Yet a special bond developed between them in Chabot, Mississippi. But within a few years, tragedy struck. In high school, a girl who lived up the road from Larry had gone to the drive-in movie with him and nobody had seen her again.

    Ann says: "Excellent story, terrific narrator."
    "Wow - great all around"
    Overall

    I downloaded this book on a whim after seeing it on Audible's main page, and I'm so glad I did. The story is haunting, the characters are multi-faceted and the writing is beautiful. In addition, I would download almost anything from this narrator - he is so good. I didn't want it to end!

    At 12, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At 24, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him. Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful.But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills.

    James says: "How much disbelief are we expected to suspend?"
    "Can't wait for it to end..."
    Overall

    Like other reviewers have said, this is a big disappointment for fans of Preston and Child. The characters are stereotypical and/or annoying, the plot is ridiculous and not even that interesting, and the narration is not the greatest and punctuated with seemingly random musical interludes. The scenes that are supposed to be exciting plodded along until I was yelling at the stereo to get on with it! Blah!

    A brilliant meteor lights up the Maine coast and two young women borrow a boat and set out for a distant island to find the impact crater. A scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. He is found decapitated, the data missing.High resolution NASA images reveal an unnatural feature hidden in the depths of a crater on Mars and it appears to have been activated. Sixty hours and counting.

    Tom says: "Vulgar? yes, but overal, it's good"
    "Good adventure science story"
    Overall

    I didn't like this one quite as much as Preston's other book featuring Wyman Ford, but I still enjoyed it. A lot of seafaring adventure and interesting "science."
