    Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan’s mission is to bring closure to the families whose loved ones have vanished. She knows their anguish - her own beloved daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old. It is only recently that this mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace. Now Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers that Eve always longed for. His 25-year-old son may or may not be dead, and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence.

    If you could sum up Taking Eve in three words, what would they be?

    Inventive, creative, and moving

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

    Yes. It is a very good performance.


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

    I was angry with the antagonist. He is just evil or stupid or both.

    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Cross My Heart to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the printed version so I can't answer this.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the multiple plots in the novel. Just when one crime is solved, there is more going on. Who can you trust? Just when the characters think they have the answers, they are wrong.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Boatman and Tom Wopat – was your favorite?

    My favorite character is Bree Cross because she is a strong woman who doesn't give up.


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

    The book is a cliffhanger that has me ready for the next installment.


    Any additional comments?

    So of the Cross series are predictable, but this one really got my attention. I enjoyed it and I am ready to read the next book in the series.

    You really get swept up quickly in this enjoyable novel, as it is written with respect for the reader's intelligence and shows the intrinsic politeness of Don Castle's persona through his character of Jake Somers. Don Castle doesn't resort to foul language, violent scenes or over the top sexual innuendos, making this book ideal for young adult reading as well as the seasoned who-done-it fans.

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

    I would recommend it to a friend because it is well written and all of the pieces fit in the story. The language is very descriptive without all of the violence and vulgarity that some authors seem to enjoy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pecan Gap?

    I really enjoyed when Jake returns to his home after doing some investigative work and finds that every room is destroyed except one. Then as he uses deduction he is able to make a discovery that keeps the plot moving. Very exciting!


    Have you listened to any of John Anthony Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first experience with a Davis performance so I cannot compare it. It was a very good audible experience.


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

    I really did want to continue listening to the book, but I started late at night. It was the kind of story that you want to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked how the author tied all of the pieces together in the novel. The use of urban and rural was also an interesting dynamic. I liked that Jake's mother and his past were part of the storyline and that more than one plot is going on in the book. I loved visiting Pecan Gap because the rural town and its characters were very believable. Looking forward to Jake Somers' next adventure!

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

    Definitely would recommend to friends who know there are conspiracies in the world


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is always hidden agenda even when the upcoming events are setup.


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

    I love the main character John. He is not a fool even when he plays dumb.


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

    I knew it was coming but when the "enemy of (my) friend" is targeted is hard on the real "good guys" in the book. I felt their anguish.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Would you listen to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo again? Why?

    Yes, I would. Parts of the plot were a little slow because of all of the details but overall a great book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The elder Vanger was my favorite because he really cared about the family.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Sometimes his accent was a little difficult to follow.


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

    It's impossible to listen to it in one sitting. Didn't want to stop listening.
