  • The Neon Rain: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By James Lee Burke

    New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker.

    S. Sand says: "The perfect combination of author and narrator"
    "Will Patton only, please!"
    Overall

    I can only listen to Will Patton read James Lee Burke. I tried his other narrator, and could not get past the first disk. Will Patton IS Dave and Clete and Helen, and all the rest as he reads the novels of Burke. No one else can hold a candle--I will have to read Jolie Blon's Bounce for myself--pity Will Patton didn't read that one also!

    When FBI Special Agent Maggie O’Dell and her partner, Tully, discover the remains of a young woman, the one clue left behind is a map - an invitation of sorts for Maggie to play a game - a game of cat and mouse between killer and investigators that will take Maggie and Tully on a frantic hunt crisscrossing the country to halt a truck-stop killer before he strikes again. With the body count rising, Maggie and her partner race against the clock to unmask the monster before it’s too late.

    Would you try another book from Alex Kava and/or Tanya Eby?

    Only with another narrator.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I couldn't listen to the whole book--didn't get past the first disk. I am requesting a refund so that I can purchase the book on my e-reader.


    What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

    Her performance of the male characters was so irritating that I just couldn't listen to the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stranded?

    I wouldn't have cut anything, I would just have had the narrator read in a normal voice.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Alex Kava's books--she needs to screen her reader's more carefully--readers like Joyce Bean do a wonderful job of reading both male and female voices without being so irritating!

    The Bone Man is Vicki's fourth novel in the Tally Whyte homicide counselor series. A tale of suspense and mystery, The Bone Man takes Homicide Counselor Tally Whyte from Boston and Martha's Vineyard to New Mexico and Chaco Canyon in search of a dead friend's murderer and a carving known as The Blood Fetish.

    Crazy Lady says: "Please bring back the former narrator!!!!!"

    I paid $17 for this before I realized that it had a new narrator (other than the other Tally Whyte books--I can't even begin to get into it--Help! This narrator is awful!

  • The Scarpetta Factor

    It is the week before Christmas. A tanking economy has prompted Dr. Kay Scarpetta - despite her busy schedule and her continuing work as the senior forensic analyst for CNN - to offer her services pro bono to New York City's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. In no time at all, her increased visibility seems to precipitate a string of unexpected and unsettling events.

    Lee says: "Disappointed"
    "Such a dissappointment!"
    Overall

    I wish I could get my money back on this one! I have always been a die-hard Cornwell fan, and have read or listened to everything she has ever written. The only other one I didn't care for was Southern Cross. The anger exuded by Scarpetta, Lucy, and other characters in this book was more than a "downer," as if Cornwell was having a psychotic or depressive moment and wanted to share it with all of her fans. The raving madness just went on and on without any of the usual bright spots that make her books a joy to read. Yes, murder and mayhem and postmortems are sometimes depressing, but Cornwell usually makes her books a fun read anyway. Something happened with this one, however, and the madness is just a little too much!
