    When the daughter of a powerful businessman dies as a result of her meth addiction, her father, strong-willed and brutal Buck Reinhardt, vows revenge. His target is the Red Boyz, a gang of Ojibwe youths accused of supplying the girl's fatal drug dose. When the head of the Red Boyz and his wife are murdered in a way that suggests execution, the Ojibwe gang mobilizes, and the citizens of Tamarack County brace themselves for war, white against red.

    Would you try another book from William Kent Krueger and/or Buck Schirner?

    Too slow, too boring, too many words. And the narration I just can't enjoy. Didn't finish the book.


    What could William Kent Krueger have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Too many words and descriptions about what the characters were thinking.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Buck Schirner?

    George Guidall


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    Best-selling author C. J. Box—an Anthony and Macavity Award winner—earned starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Booklist for this exceptional mystery. Taking advantage of a legal loophole, a lawyer kills four people in Yellowstone National Park and walks away a free man. As the public outcry intensifies, the governor hires former game warden Joe Pickett to conduct a private investigation.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would have enjoyed this, and other CJ Box books, with a different narrator. I can't help but get the feeling he's condescending in his approach and that the characters are all sniveling twits, at least that's how I feel while listening. I have the book in Whispersync and enjoy reading on the Kindle and then I groan through the Audible.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "A remake"
    Overall

    Simply a remake of "Lord of the Flies" with the F Bomb and sex thrown in for good measure. Too long and too predictable. Don't bother.

    A handful of people. From different backgrounds, living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common - except fear. Deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, a dark memory called out to them, drawing them to the Tranquility Motel - where the terrifying truth was waiting.

    Barry F. Stinson says: "Brilliant"
    "Not the best"
    Overall

    This book is just too long. Can I put too many "too's" in a reveiw? Too long, too many characters, too much detail, too many thoughts, too many....

    Ex-homicide cop Frank Quinn is still reeling in the wake of an elaborate setup that ended his career, but a new case presents a chance to salvage his reputation. A killer dubbed "The Night Prowler" has begun terrorizing the citizens of New York City. With the body count climbing, it's up to Quinn to unlock the mystery of a madman's past and end his bloody reign of terror. But in the city of New York, any one of eight million faces could be that of a killer - or his next target.

    Amazon Customer says: "Great Twist"
    "Too much"
    Overall

    I very much enjoy modern detective novels. I enjoy listening to Scott Brick as the narrator of many of the books available on Audible. This is the first time in probably 200 books that I've enjoyed that I turned it off within the first hour of the book. Too graphic of sex, murder, thoughts of the characters, etc. In my opinion it was too much.

    He's Hollywood's most dazzling star, who is worshiped by millions and hated by one twisted soul. His existence is under siege as a series of terrifying, enigmatic "messages" breaches the security systems of his Bel Air estate. The boxes arrive mysteriously, one by one, at Channing Manheim's compound. Manheim's security chief, ex-cop Ethan Truman, is used to looking beneath the surface of things. But until he entered the orbit of a Hollywood icon, he had no idea just how slippery reality could be.

    Peggie says: "Entertaining"
    "It's OK, but please..."
    Overall

    I enjoyed the book; I really did. However, it's like Hollywood where they take an enjoyable story and then they just have to throw in the graffic sex, body part descriptions, and strange sexual fantacies. I wish that these writers would just stick to what they are good at; writing stories. I don't like to skip fast forward through these types of descriptions. Expecially when they have nothing to do with the overall flow of the story.
