    Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm doing background research for the partners. It's not that he isn't smart. He is. It's just that hard work, the whole legal world, isn't really his thing. Underachiever? Yes. Content? At least until the firm puts him on a case that turns his whole world upside down.

    Would you listen to Heart of a Killer again? Why?

    I suppose so - but a lot of time has to pass.


    What other book might you compare Heart of a Killer to and why?

    at first I wasn't sure about reading a non andy carpenter book but this one held up.


    What aspect of Tadd Morgan’s performance would you have changed?

    he started a little slow - but then I guess I got more used to his style especially after listening to the andy carpenter series with grover gardner reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    just the beginning until I got used to his style.


    Any additional comments?

    David Rosenfelt writes good mysteries and doesn't rely on bad language to convey mood.

    The sun rides high over the British Empire and the light still sparkles brightly in Amelia Peabody's eye as she returns for her second adventure in archaeology and romantic mystery as recounted in her lively journal, The Curse of the Pharaohs.

    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Peters and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    I already have.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked the Egyptian history. The characters were borning and predictable - I didn't enjoy the snobbery and the explosive temper. The child was too much.

    What aspect of Barbara Rosenblat’s performance would you have changed?

    Her performance is good -- it's just the written characters that I did not care for.


    Was The Curse of the Pharaohs worth the listening time?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    If Elizabeth Peters had more likable characters. it would be better, her stories are interesting.

    Andy Carpenter gains possession of an adorable Bernese puppy whose owner was brutally murdered. Few can rival Andy's affection for dogs, and he will do whatever it takes to insure that this little pup doesn't fall into the wrong hands. However, his playful new friend is valued by several people, many of whom are willing to resort to violence to get what they want.It will take more than Andy's usual courtroom theatrics to save this dog, including a little help from his beloved Golden Retriever, Tara.

    I live these stories - the author has the same sense of humor that I do - very enjoyable - good mystery with twists and turns.


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    love his delivery

    We need to pay attention to how food companies are just interested in their own profit.

    Some people think Hawaii is paradise, but Monk knows that danger, like dirt, lurks everywhere. Look at Helen Gruber, the rich tourist who took a fatal blow from a coconut. The police say it fell from a tree, but Monk suspects otherwise. His assistant Natalie isn't exactly thrilled about Monk's latest investigation. It was bad enough Monk followed her on vacation, and now it looks like the vacation is over.

    What did you love best about Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii?

    Mr Monk -- and I liked having Natalie tell the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mr. Monk Goes to Hawaii?

    The peanut game


    What does Laura Hicks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She tells a good story, good characterization


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Unfortunately I listen just before going to sleep - if I could listen in one sitting that would be good.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope more books with Mr. Monk will follow
