    Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster-care system. Following their parents' death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years. Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that, in order to inherit the wealth of his father's estate, he must marry a woman before he turns 35.

    What disappointed you about No One in the World?

    I didn't appreciate the predictability in the story line. And the narrator was horrible. It almost felt as though he was making fun of the characters. His voices were less of a theatrical change, but more of a mocking unenthusiastic change.


    Has No One in the World turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. But, if this is the kind of narrative quality I should expect from this author, I will save my credit and just go to the library.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Bomar Jones’s performances?

    NEVER!!!!!!!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It wasn't a terrible book. But if you're seeking depth and dimension..... This book is not for you. It it too predictable.

    Atlanta, 1974: It's Kate Murphy's first day on the job, and the Atlanta Police Department is seething after the murder of an officer. Before the day has barely begun, she already suspects she's not cut out to be a cop. Her male uniform is too big, she can't handle a gun, and she's rapidly learning that the APD is hardly a place that welcomes women. Worse still, in the ensuing manhunt, she'll be partnered with Maggie Lawson, a cop with her own ax to grind (and a brother and uncle already on the force) - a strategy meant to isolate Kate and Maggie from the action.

    Would you try another book from Karin Slaughter and/or Kathleen Early?

    I would. I am a fan of the "Will Trent" series. But....wow, Cop Town is making me think twice.


    Has Cop Town turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not in this genre, but definitely by this author.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kathleen Early’s performances?

    Her performance was fine. Her voice worked well with the characters.


    What character would you cut from Cop Town?

    Where would I begin, what a loaded question.


    Any additional comments?

    I understand where and when this book takes place and I understand that this book is a work of fiction. With that being the case I am still offended at how the author portrays her black characters in this book. How is it that all of the black characters are on heroin,dirty,filthy,pimps,mean,angry and "less than"....
    The difference between slavery and the holocaust is representation in history approaches both atrocities differently. It doesn't mean that one group of people is better, cleaner and more deserving of understanding and respect. Karin Slaughter has managed to make all of her black characters regardless of time,place or setting seem like they aren't worth the shit on a shoe. I was offended by her portrayal of characters. This was a waste of my time and credit.

    What made the experience of listening to The Outlaw Demon Wails the most enjoyable?

    This is a wonderful series. What makes it enjoyable is the consistency of the books themselves. There is a flow, a reader isn't wondering "did I miss something". However, in saying that I am in no way implying that the books are redundant, obvious or routine.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot always keeps a reader guessing. There are quite a lot of twists and turns that are nicely unexpected.


    What aspect of Gigi Bermingham’s performance would you have changed?

    As stated by other listeners, is seems as though she never took the time to listen to the other narrator prior to recording herself. A few of the characters names were mispronounced and a few of the voices were quite a bit, off. She does seem to have a nice flow of speaking. Maybe, if she were the initial narrator it wouldn't have been so bad;a listener would be use to her style. I do believe if she narrates a series from conception she would do wonderfully.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was definitely entertaining as usual. A little laughter,surprise, suspense and overall fun. This is a really enjoyable series.

    Sunshine State trivia buff Serge A. Storms loves eliminating jerks and pests. His drug-addled partner Coleman loves cartoons. Hot stripper Sharon Rhodes loves cocaine, especially when purchased with rich dead men's money. On the other hand, there's Sean and David, who love fishing and are kind to animals - and who are about to cross paths with a suitcase filled with $5 million in stolen insurance money. Serge wants the suitcase. Sharon wants the suitcase. Coleman wants more drugs... and the suitcase.

    Where does Florida Roadkill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Absolutely a book that makes you think. I like this book very much. An author that truly understands that life does have a "gray area".


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wasn't at the edge of my seat, but I was pleasantly surprised about the angles the author took. This book thinks outside of the box. I found a book that sees Florida as I see it. No offense, but the state of Florida is definitely "special" to put it mildly.


    What three words best describe George Wilson’s voice?

    I was able to identify each character. Everyone had an identity. Very well done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction, But totally worth the listen and the credit. I am not easily amused nor am I ever startled or surprised but anyone's behavior, but this book made me laugh and had me raising my eyebrows. Very well done.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I do enjoy James Patterson books very much, however I feel that maybe he is taking on a bit more than he can chew. Probably spitting out books too quick with no true thought behind them. This book is a bit hard to follow. I did not enjoy the characters. There were some very slow areas in the book that made me fast forward so that I wouldn't fall asleep. It was a bit hard for me to get through.


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson and Maxine Paetro ’s story?

    The whole story threw me off this time.


    What three words best describe Peter Hermann’s performance?

    boring, slow, undetermined (characters weren't differntiated properly. I wasn't quite sure who was who at times.)


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. I would purchase an Alex Cross Book, And maybe even another Women's Murder Club book, but definitely NEVER a Private audiobook.

    Overall

    This installment was an absolute let down. I absolutely love the work of James Patterson, but a little more effort should have been put into writing this book. It just didn't read like a complete addition to the women's murder club. There didn't seem to be much effort or thought when it came to a storyline. It was really a waste of a credit.
