    Serge A. Storms is back! The one-man crime spree hits no speed bumps as he swings through Tampa, Disney World, and parts south before settling down in Miami Beach to team up with a former sidekick and launch his long-overdue offbeat travel service. It's a labor of love as Serge forces customers to confront the underbelly of the Sunshine State's past and present. Some clients get it; others run for their lives. No matter.

    Paul says: "You Gotta Love Serge!"
    "Terrific read/listen"
    Overall

    Very well constructed. Laugh out load scenes so be careful where you are while listening. We need more characters like Sergio in this world.

    Welcome to another typical summer in Florida, the season of the storms. Serge Storms. That loveable serial killer, an under-under-medicated dispenser of truth, justice, and trivia, is back with a vengeance. And not a weirdness-laced moment too soon. His cherished home state is about to take a beating, and from far more than the way-too-routine conga line of hurricanes bearing down on the peninsula. Corpses have begun turning up at a disturbing rate, even for Florida.

    If you could sum up Hurricane Punch in three words, what would they be?

    Bring back George Wilson. The story and humor is excellent but the reader is terrible.

    The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease - or by dagger. For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

    Eva Gannon says: "Perhaps An Early Work?"
    "Excellent read."
    Overall

    Pirate Latitudes is not Michael Crichton at his best, but it is an adventure tale with plenty of action, atmosphere, and suspense.I liked it and it was funny. It is a world when men ruled so not many chicks will like it.

    No one knows why Lara Mallory opens up her medical practice in the rowdy Texas town where Tackett Oil owns everything. But everyone remembers her role in the well-publicized scandal that caused the downfall of White House hopeful Senator Clark Tackett. Now the ironfisted matriarch of Tackett Oil intends to use her money and power to drive Lara out of town...especially when Lara meets Key, the hell-raising, youngest Tackett son.

    Kyla says: "Loved It!"

    Overall

    This is a chick book with really bad dialog. All beware.
    As an audio book it is a complete failure. The narrator is barely understandable. She reads the dialog (poorly written dialog) fine. But the rest is terrible. Her sentences trail off so you can hear the last word. The emphasis is all over the place, trying to make it interesting I guess. Another guess is that the story is so feminine that the narrator supposes you (women) already KNOW what is about to be read so you really don't need to speak clearly, just rush through the obvious (to women).

    Former Secret Service agents turned private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have seen their lives splinter around them. Michelle lies unconscious in a hospital bed after a night of suicidal violence. And Sean is forced to take on a thankless investigation into the murder of a scientist just inside the CIA's razor-wire fence near Williamsburg, Virginia. But they will need to team up again to stop a conspiracy of traitors operating in the shadow of the White House itself.

    R.E. Vazquez says: "not Baldacci's best"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I don't write reviews but I have a strong feeling that I owe the world a warning. Slow moving would be a plus for this book. Author is pompous and narrator is annoying with his pronunciations couple with stiff, literal, un-natural use of military terms. Topping this all off is that the last 30-40 minutes are used to lecture you on the whys and wherefores of who did what and why. This is a thriller?
