    Meet Jake Oliver. The day will come when he's one of the best cleaners in the business, a man skilled at making bodies disappear. At the moment, however, he's a 22 year old rookie cop, unaware his life is about to change. In a burning barn a body is found--and the fire isn't the cause of death. The detectives working the case have a pretty good idea about what went down. But Officer Oliver thinks it's something else entirely, and pursues a truth others would prefer remain hidden - others who will go to extreme lengths to keep him quiet.

    Story

    When will other authors and publishers realize what Brett Battles and Nelson DeMille, as well as others, have already...? Scott Brick is the best in the business of narration. I intentionally search for books that he narrates for my next purchase. That's how I found the Jonathan Quinn series. So glad I did.

  • Sleepless: A Novel

    The world is in the grip of an epidemic of sleeplessness and one man will risk everything to find out what caused it. In his signature style of fast-paced action, outrageous violence, and graphically described scenes, we are tossed into a dramatic turbulence unlike anything you've ever read or heard.

    Story

    ...but I'm now all out as this was his last on my "unread list." After having stumbled across the first of the Joe Pitt series, I became a fan of his dark style, "noir-ish" as a previous reviewer aptly labeled it. Huston is very skilled and has a keen way with words, particularly when it comes to details which may, at first glance, seem to be trivial but lend flavor and spice to the overall scenario he is developing. Unlike a few other reviewers, I appreciated the two-narrator design of this audiobook, as I think it went a long way toward demarcating the two points of view presented. Not even the skillful Scott Brick could have pulled that off as well.

  • Name Dropping: Tales from My San Francisco Nightclub

    When El Matador opened in 1958, Bennett Cerf called it "the most attractive room in America". Part saloon, part salon, Barnaby Conrad's nightclub was nestled in the heart of San Francisco's cabaret and nightlife district. On any given night, one might find Noel Coward, Marilyn Monroe, Truman Capote, Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, or Tyrone Power in the club or might hear Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Eva Gabor, George Shearing, or André Previn take over the piano.

    Story

    There's something intriguing about name-dropping tomes and the telling of relatively secret stories when it involves the famous, past and present. And, while the narration by Mr. Conrad is not up to the standards of readers such as Scott Brick, it's certainly good enough. A lot of flavor would have been missed had the author of such an autobiographical novel not read it to us. Thanks for a really fun read, Mr. Conrad.
