    FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Story line was pretty good though expected. Narration was too precise, no character, no emotion.

    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    Would you try another book from John Sandford and/or Eric Conger?

    Sorry, Virgil Flowers just doesn't do it. Stories seemed focus on showing the oddities of people.

  • You Are Why You Eat: Change Your Food Attitude, Change Your Life

    What if you could stop eating, stop working at a bad job, stop a bad relationship - stop anything when you have had enough? Understanding WHY you eat can lead to real and lasting change - both in weight loss and all other areas of life. In You Are Why You Eat food becomes a digestible metaphor. Most of us are unable to walk away - from a plate of food or a bad situation. But instead of staying and trying to please others all the time, what would happen if you listened to your inner voice?

    What did you like best about You Are Why You Eat? What did you like least?

    Once again I fell for the chance to get an answer. Guess what, you may eat because of something other than hunger. Duh! A couple of good hints on motivations but not really anything new. At least it won't be sitting on my bookshelf.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Witness?

    The story had characters that you became involved with, either hated or loved. The humor was delightful. Abigail's lack of social skills and understanding was charming. Maybe not totally believable, but definitely added to the building of the character. The plot line kept the story moving without being repetitive.

    Narration was very well done.
