    Ali Reynolds begins the summer thinking her most difficult challenge will be surviving a six-week- long course as the lone 40-something female at the Arizona Police Academy—not to mention taking over the 6:00 AM shift at her family’s restaurant while her parents enjoy a long overdue Caribbean cruise.

    I've listened to two hours and quit. This belongs in the bodice-ripping "Women's Fantasy Romance"
    category, not Mysteries and Thrillers.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

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

    I loved the audio edition. I have not seen the print edition, perhaps I will read the print edition too.


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

    Yes, I was very involved in what would happen next...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening chapter was wonderfully taut...


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

    Yes it made me both laugh and cry at times, thinking of my own wonderful dog and how wonderful the K-9s are.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could meet Maggie!

    At the center of the intrigue is Hollywood star, Frederic Stahl. September 1938. On the eve of the Munich Appeasement, Stahl arrives in Paris, on loan from Warner Brothers to star in a French film. He quickly becomes entangled in the shifting political currents of pre-war Paris - French fascists, German Nazis, and his Hollywood publicists all have their fates tied to him. But members of the clandestine spy world of Paris have a deeper interest in Stahl, sensing a potential asset in a handsome, internationally renowned actor.

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    Richard Delman says: "Dave Robicheaux lives!"
    "Someone who writes like this should be the POTUS."
