    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Carolyn McCormick - her performance was wonderful. I really did not like the story, but this book was a gift and I told myself I would listen to it all the way through. The only thing I can really say about it, is that Carolyn McCormick was the only outstanding part of this book! She did a wonderful job of narration!

    It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.

    The performance was great by the narrators! The story was also great! Lisa can lend a very gripping edge to her stories and have you wanting to keep going. I also do like her endings as she is very good at wrapping up details in her stories.

But vicious rumors begin to circulate the next morning when Bobby loses his gun and his privileges. It turns out the dead man was the son of a prominent Boston judge and had accused his wife of poisoning their son.

    Lisa Gardner is WOW! AWESOME! RIVETING from page 1 to the last page!! I had a hard time putting this book down. I loved how Lisa grabbed my interest and kept it "high" till the end! I loved her writing, how she went through each chapter, how she tied up the loose ends towards the end! Here is an author who does a fantastic job of writing! I will be looking for her books and getting them. Her narrator also was super great!! I hope Lisa hangs onto her - she is awesome and wonderful!!!

    Richie Forman is freshly out of prison. By night, he makes a living impersonating Frank Sinatra in San Francisco's lounges and corporate parties. When his ex-best friend - the man who stole his fiancée while he was in prison - is found hacked to death in his garage, Richie becomes the prime suspect. In a murder mystery with the twists and turns of a microchip, Carnoy weaves his characters like a master. He has written an authentic, irresistible thriller that is sure to chill and delight.

    .Lucas Davenport has seen many terrible murder scenes. This is one of the worst. In the small Minnesota town of Deephaven, an entire family has been killed - husband, wife, two daughters, dogs. There’s something about the scene that pokes at Lucas’s cop instincts - it looks an awful lot like the kind of scorched-earth retribution he’s seen in drug killings sometimes. But this is a seriously upscale town, and the husband was an executive vice president at a big bank. It just doesn’t seem to fit.

    Story

    This is my first time with Stanford. This story started out slowly and then, picked up. The story is good writing. I am disappointed that there was a lot of bad language, which tends to turn me off as I just do not feel the bad language adds anything to the story. The bad language seemed to me, to be way overdone. It had a fairly good ending. I might try another of his stories at some point - I will have to think about it.

    A debut of extraordinary distinction: through the trials of one unforgettable family, Ayana Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration, a story of love and bitterness and the promise of a new America. In 1923, 15-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    A music therapist who thrives on helping others, Kendra Michaels cherishes the ordinary life she has achieved after stem cell surgery restored her sight. The skills she perfected during those sightless years - the ability to pick up the most subtle audio, olfactory, and tactile cues in the world around her - coupled with her laser-sharp mind - have made her a uniquely potent observer and problem solver. Kendra’s uncanny way of connecting the dots is as baffling to law enforcement as it is legendary.

    Story

    I enjoyed the box set with the exception of the music playing during part 5. The music would play inbetween chapters - that part was fine. What wasn't good, is that in the beginning or ending of each chapter, the music would play, and it was difficult to hear what was being said. I found that to be annoying as I wanted to hear what was being said and the music played too long during the talking in the beginning and ending of each chapter.
