    Deputy U.S. Marshall Karen Sisco is just stopping off to serve a summons and complaint on Florida's Glades prison. All decked out in a black Chanel suit and heels, she's nevertheless ready with her pump-action shotgun when a breakout occurs minutes after she pulls into the prison parking lot. But she's not ready for Jack Foley, the celebrity con who disarms her, invites her to climb into the trunk of her car and then joins her as his pal Buddy guns her blue Caprice onto the highway headed for freedom.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book, I read it well before the movie came out and I was pleasantly surprised by how well they captured the feeling of the book in the movie. One of my favourite Elmore Leonard books, although I think I liked Riding the Rap a little more. Hard to say.

    Story
    (726)

    Miles Vorkosigan graduates from the Barrayaran Military Academy with high expectations of ship command, but is disappointed with an assignment as meteorologist to Lazkowski Base, an arctic training camp. His tenure in the windy, snow-covered north is cut short when Miles narrowly averts a massacre between the trigger-happy base commander and mutinous recruits. After a brief stay under 'house arrest', Miles is re-assigned to investigate a suspicious military build-up near a wormhole nexus.

    Overall

    Finally some of her Miles series is making it onto audio books. I read this entire series and I loved it. The Vor Game is a great example of the series and is a great moving book about honour and commitments. I recomend any of her books in this series, I have never been disappointed by any of them. Her characters fly from the pages, real and complete, pulling you along through the story as you want to see if Miles manages to succeed, or not. You never quite know for sure what the outcome will be, since he doesn't always get everything he hoped for.

    Amidst the decaying splendor and poisonous intrigue of Chalion's ancient capital, Cazaril is forced to confront not only powerful enemies but also the malignant curse that clings to the royal household, trapping him, flesh and soul, in a maze of demonic paradox, damnation, and death for as long as he dares walk the five-fold pathway of the gods.

    "Enjoyable book"
    Overall

    This was an enjoyable book, although somewhat lacking in depth compared to what I expect from one of her books. The Miles series somehow seemed to have more depth to plots than this one does. Never the less that is a great book and once I got into it I didn't want to stop reading it until the end. I liked the characters, and this is one of Lois's great abilities, is she creates fantastic believable and interesting characters.

    The plot felt a little forced in a few places, most notablly towards the start of the book, and it didn't flow quite as well as it could have.
