    A truck crashes and spills its dangerous cargo on a treacherous road in the Italian Dolomite mountains. Meanwhile, in Santa Lucia, a prominent international lawyer is found dead aboard an intercity train. Suspecting a connection between the two tragedies, Commissario Guido Brunetti digs deep for an answer, stumbling upon a seedy Venetian bar that holds the key to a crime network that reaches far beyond the laguna.

    Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manualito witnesses the cold-blooded shooting of someone very close to her. With the victim fighting for his life, the entire squad and the local FBI office are hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, despite regulations forbidding eyewitness involvement. But that doesn't mean she's going to sit idly by, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is in charge of finding the shooter. Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving his former boss and partner, retired Inspector Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key.

    Would you listen to Spider Woman's Daughter again? Why?

    Ms Hillerman does not let the reader down as she brings Tony Hillerman's characters (Chee and Leaphorn) to life once again. She picks the storyline where Tony left off (due to his untimely death). Hope to see more from Ms Hillerman.

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Buried Prey to be better than the print version?

    Did not read print version


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

    Not a dull read. Story line continuous with no lags.


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

    Ferrone at his best.


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

    Lucas Davenport out to right an old wrong.

    Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims.

    L. Reiner says: "In Death Book 33.5 - Not Robb's best, but good"

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

    I recommend this book to everyone who enjoy mysteries.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The futuristic setting of the "in Death" series sets this series apart from the usual mystery.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Lt. Eve Dallas is not only a strong character; she has the strength of character and the 'off duty' life that most women wish for.

    Commissario Guido Brunetti's career is under threat when his professional and personal lives unexpectedly intersect. In the chill of the Venetian dawn, a sudden act of vandalism shatters the quiet of the deserted city, and Brunetti is shocked to find that the culprit waiting to be apprehended at the scene is a member of his own family. Meanwhile, he is also under pressure from his superiors to solve a daring robbery with connections to a suspicious accidental death. Could the two crimes be connected? And will Brunetti be able to prove his family's innocence before it's too late?

    Would you listen to Fatal Remedies again? Why?

    A great read or listen for Leon Fans. As with all Leon books it is just as good the fifth time as the first time you read it. I love to listen to an audio recording of one of Leon's books as I read it. Colacci's recital puts life into Leon's story and helps me with the pronunciation on the many italian phrases throughtout her Brunetti mysteries.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was glad that Paula put action to her vehement protest of travel aimed especially toward pedophile's so that they may take advantage of children in other counties.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Paula's description of the person who broke the travel agency window, to the police officers, was very much the Paula I've come to know through Leon's books.
