    When Betsy Devonshire arrived in Excelsior, Minnesota, all she wanted was to visit her sister Margot and get her life in order. She never dreamed her sister would give her a place to stay and a job at her needlecraft shop. In fact, things had never looked so good - until Margot was murdered. In a town this friendly, it's hard to imagine who could have committed such a horrible act, but Betsy has a few ideas. There's an ex-employee who wants to start her own needlework store. And there's the landlord who wanted Margot out. Now Betsy's putting together a list of motives and suspects....

    Story

    Maybe knitting isn't my thing. I found the story simplistic, not intriguing at all. I will admit the writing is pure Minnesota. The reader mispronounces several place names and city names which to me is unacceptable. Both the reader and the producer should know better.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Story

    Fast paced techno-thriller. Fun to listen to. However, the techincal language, acronyms, and concepts most of the time were way above me in understanding. And seemed unrealistic. There was so much ot the language and the concept got in the way of the story for me.

    Story

    This is not up to Reilly's standards. The story is all over the place. sometimes rambling, confusing. The series is is one book long. The reader empathizes every sentence which after a while is boring.

    I don't want to hear someone ranting about his personal polticial views. I want a great story, full of action. This is not a great story.
