    Four young women have been found murdered—tortured and strangled in their own beds—all victims of the same brilliant monster. Using a skilled hand and the latest technology in forensic medicine, Kay Scarpetta begins the process of gathering the microscopic clues the latest battered body has to give.

    The plot was passable, but the characters were a little superficial and the some of the character development didn't seem to go anywhere. The narrator could have varied accents for the different characters. It was not "an on the edge of your seat" mystery.

    Peter Godwin, an award-winning writer, is on assignment in Zululand when he is summoned by his mother to Zimbabwe, his birthplace. His father is seriously ill; she fears he is dying. Godwin finds his country, once a post-colonial success story, descending into a vortex of violence and racial hatred.

    Lisbeth says: "Entertaining and Educating"

    What made the experience of listening to When a Crocodile Eats the Sun the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it is true and read by the author


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

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    This book provides an incredible insight into how absolute power corrupts absolutely and the story provides a vivid insight into how this can affect innocent people and how deeply evil humans can become. Robert Mugabe is probably worse than Hitler as personal gratification and greed are mixed in with ambition and evil - a truley despicable human being.

    This novel is a story inspired from John Grisham's own childhood in Arkansas. The narrator is a farm boy named Luke Chandler, age seven, who lives in the cotton fields with his family in a little house that's never been painted. The Chandlers farm 80 acres, and when the cotton is ready they hire a truckload of Mexicans and a family from the Ozarks to help harvest it. For six weeks they pick cotton, battle the heat, the rain, the fatigue, and sometimes, each other.

    Julie L. Rowlands says: "A Great Listen."
    "Great description and absorbing story"

    The book began slowly, but draws you in as the characters are developed.You will be dissapointed that the books ends. The narrator was ideal for the book.
