    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."

    What did you like best about Lightning? What did you like least?

    Nothing really stands out, as a fan of Dean Koontz I believe this may not be up there with some of his other books.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dean Koontz? Why or why not?

    yes, I'm a fan of his work.


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    Did a good job, despite the story falling apart.


    Did Lightning inspire you to do anything?

    Nope

    Greetings. There is a body buried on your property, covered in your blood. The unfortunate young lady's name is Rita Jones. In her jeans pocket you'll find a slip of paper with a phone number on it. Call that number. If I have not heard from you by 8:00 P.M., the police will receive an anonymous call. I'll tell them where Rita Jones is buried on your property, how you killed her, and where the murder weapon can be found in your house. (I do believe a paring knife is missing from your kitchen.)

    On the 85th floor of a glittering high-rise in Los Angeles, Robert Tarza steps into the lobby of the Marbury Marfan law firm to discover his partner Simon Rafer lying in a pool of blood - an ornate dagger plunged into his back. Robert had worked with Simon for decades, and their relationship was fraught with conflict. But he never imagined he would wind up as the prime suspect for his colleague’s murder. As the evidence stacks up against him with frightening speed, he quickly falls from his respected position to that of a criminal dragged through the tabloids.

    Would you listen to Death on a High Floor again? Why?

    No, because I don't normally listen to books twice, but I would watch the movie.

    Daniel Boone....


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

    I don't think I have listen to him before, very good performance. The lead character was a bit of slow talker. Other than that not bad.


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

    When making an exit.... don't look back.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    From the creator, writer, and executive producer of the HBO series True Detective and soon to be a major motion picture comes a dark and visceral novel set along the wastelands of Galveston. On the same day Roy Cady is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he learns that his employer has put a hit out on him. After narrowly escaping an attempt on his life, Cady goes on the run with a young prostitute named Rocky and her three-year-old sister, from New Orleans to Galveston, Texas. But though they run, they cannot hide in this explosive, atmospheric, impossible-to-pause thrill ride.

    This is the infamous follow-up to Serial Uncut, featuring 21 different serial killers. For everyone who thinks the bad guys are so much more fun to read than the good guys, we’ve written a novel just for you. In the annuls of modern thriller fiction, the villains always steal the show. We love to read and watch great villains. In many cases, they’re the best, most entertaining parts of our books, so it only made sense to write a book featuring every major villain we’ve ever written.

    Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking? #1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy. #2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy. So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Crazy #2?Newly expanded, Serial Uncut is more horrific than ever, so proceed at your own risk. If you suffer from anxiety attacks, nervous disorders, insomnia, nightmares or night terrors, heart palpitations, stomach problems, or are of an overly sensitive nature, you should listen to something else.

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    What did you like best about Odd Thomas? What did you like least?

    The twist at the ending, and the narration style of the story seemed as if the character was rambling.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Wow, I didn't see that coming.


    What does David Aaron Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made a close to boring narration style story a bit more interesting.


    Could you see Odd Thomas being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It is a movie and that's why I listened to the book,now I will watch the movie.

    In this Hugo-nominated novel, an alien walks into a museum and asks if he can see a paleontologist. But the arachnid ET hasn't come aboard a rowboat with the Pope and Stephen Hawking (although His Holiness does request an audience later). Landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the spacefarer, Hollus, asks to compare notes on mass extinctions with resident dino-scientist Thomas Jericho.

    Easily in my top 10 favorite books, possibly top 5 so far.


    What other book might you compare Calculating God to and why?

    It's really hard to say because it's so original and thought provoking.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis and Robert J. Sawyer – was your favorite?

    Hollus was my favorite


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

    The conversation's between the alien and atheist about religion.


    Any additional comments?

    My favorite quote from the book was, "Honor does not have to be defended."
