    As a young gay man—and a werepanther—all Jin Rayne yearns for is a normal life. Having fled his past, he wants nothing more than to start over, but Jin’s old life doesn’t want to let him go. When his travels bring him to a new city, he crosses paths with the leader of the local were-tribe. Logan Church is a shock and an enigma, and Jin fears that Logan is both the mate he fears and the love of his life.

Determined to do the right thing, Kurt offers the mourning Davy his assistance. Helping Davy through his grief helps Kurt deal with the guilt that his partner didn't trust him enough to tell him the truth, and somewhere along the way Davy stops being an obligation and becomes a friend, the closest friend Kurt has ever had. His growing attraction to Davy complicates matters, leaving Kurt struggling to reevaluate his sexuality.

    Story
    Would you listen to Cop Out again? Why?

    Yes, especially if it was re-recorded with a different narrator! The story was good, maybe running a little long, but well worth the listening . . . except for the narrator, which almost had me not finishing the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Curt. Even though it took him a long time to come to terms with himself and who he loved his character was real-to-life. The 2nd best minor role was his brother Ian . . . I saw that coming.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No. The narrator seemed too flat, especially in the early part of the book. I have listened to other stories he's done and the same problem occurs. There is no emotion, no heat, no joy, no sorrow . . . just nothing. I read a book with more emotion in my head than was given in this narration


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really extreme . . . just the on-going theme of most gay love stories that of fear, sometimes self-loathing of one of the characters. I hope for a time when that type of stuff stops!


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator needs to get better or not be used. I look forward to the next story, but probably won't get it if it is the same narrator.

    What about Jill Apple’s performance did you like?

    All of it. She brought ALL of the characters to life but she was really Max to the limit!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Max is dealing with her feelings for Fang and her jealousy. She tells Fang that "there is no me and you." And Fang responds, "There will ALWAYS be a me and you!"

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Black Box the most enjoyable?

    Revisiting one of my favorite characters. I really like the way Connelly has had Bosch evolve over the years.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bosch's interactions with his daughter; his unwavering principles; his lack of fear of internal investigations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are two scenes that come to mined: 1) The quiet showdown with Lt. O'Toole when he talked about the pending internal investigation and the fact that he (Bosch) would be the one still standing when it was over. 2) The statement he made to the Sherriff at the last of the book when he told him he was glad he was still alive after the helicopter crash and glad that he would live the rest of his life in prison for killing all the people he did, especially, the girl he killed 20 years earlier.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A reckoning comes to all


    Any additional comments?

    Near the end of this book I was afraid that Connelly was making this the end of the series. I'm so glad he didn't and I look forward to the next Harry Bosch book!

    Carolyn knew everything about Veronica Campbell. She knew about the case of murder and retribution that haunted her life and her career. About her stormy relationship with her husband, Drew. About the emotional darkness that was overwhelming Veronica's fragile seventeen-year-old daughter, Jude. But seeing her friend laid out on a cold hard slab of steel in a morgue, and hearing the initial judgments of the investigators, she knows this: there's no way Veronica would have ever taken her own life.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sum of All Fears to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print version . . . due to the length I would have went audio anyway.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Pretty much. Clancy knows how to build a story and I like the way he writes from the viewpoint of the various people that make up the end game. Any book I read from him always keeps me on the edge waiting for the next twist.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's awesome as always. If I'm not sure on a book but see he's narrating I usually buy it!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. I laughed in a sarcastic way from all of the political wrangling going on and I cried and felt bad for Jack and all the stress he was put through just because the National Security Adviser didn't like him and literally attacked his character throughout the book. I cried when the bomb when off in Denver (that scenario is all too real) and I cheered when he "got the last laugh" on the NSA and the President and thanked god he had the wherewithall to say no when needed and to go out on a limb to do what was right.

    The bizarre murder of a parish priest at a New York bondage club opens Nikki Heat's most thrilling and dangerous case so far, pitting her against New York's most vicious drug lord, an arrogant CIA contractor, and a shadowy death squad out to gun her down. And that is just the tip of an iceberg that leads to a dark conspiracy reaching all the way to the highest level of the NYPD.

    Maybe . . . just because I didn't like it as much as I thought I would doesn't mean someone else wouldn't like it.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. His performance was great as always.
