    Controversial author and scholar David Etheridge is not the kind of company an aspiring politician wants to keep. But ambitious senator Robert McCrutchen has a history with Etheridge that he's desperately trying to keep under wraps: 22 years ago, both men were investigated in the still-unsolved death of a young coed.

    Gene says: "Really slow"
    "Perdictable-Frustrating"
    Overall

    Figured out the who-dunit, before the 2nd chapter. No twist-or-turns just listened until it was finally over. Reader was good.
    Bought a couple of other books from Kate Wilhelm, hope they aren't all this predictable.

    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    B.J. says: "A stunning achievement - for author and narrator"

    What would have made The Goldfinch better?

    Such a dark book, the boy didn't seem to have a chance at ever being happy.

    No

    The performance was just wonderful.

    Swan Peak finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina.

    Deborah says: "Christmas/Birthday in July"
    "Swan Peak"
    Overall

    How dark and sick can a writer get, Swan Peak should be in the batch that could be burned and never missed. I unloaded this before the 4th chapter...I didn't even want it on my list.
    Sad that a person could think of such brutality and human suffering.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "World Without End"
    Overall

    This was a long book, but never boring.
    The reader was excellant.
    Everytime I tuned in I was instantly there.
    Seeing, feeling, smelling what the writer was writing about. A great auidio book.

    The National Weapons Alliance is holding a rally in Blanco County, and it's being headlined by country music star Mitch Campbell. But Campbell's a fraud and someone's set to expose him. A humorous take on a touchy subject, Gun Shy is a sly lampoon of both sides of the gun debate.

    Laudine Buckley says: "A MUST for Mystery Lovers"
    "Gun Shy (Unabridged)"
    Overall

    This was slow going...with a weak ending.

    In his 50s, Michael Gates Gill had it all: a big house in the suburbs, a loving family, and a top job at an ad agency with a six-figure salary. By the time he turned 60, he had lost everything except his Ivy League education and his sense of entitlement. First, he was downsized at work. Next, an affair ended his 20-year marriage. Then, he was diagnosed with a slow-growing brain tumor, prognosis undetermined. Around the same time, his girlfriend gave birth to a son.

    Entertaining, but got a little long. Kept wondering how much longer. But all and all I enjoyed the book and made me think. I liked that

    Really Good Book. I enjoyed both writer and reader.
    This was my first book from this writer, but definitely will look for more books from her.

    Fresh from her bruising battle with a psychopath in Florida, Scarpetta decides it's time for a change of pace. Moving to Charleston, South Carolina, she opens a unique private forensic pathology practice, one in which she and her colleagues, including Pete Marino and her niece, Lucy, offer expert crime-scene investigation and autopsy services to communities lacking local access to competent death investigation and modern technology.

    "Book Of The Dead"
    Overall

    Save yourself and your money.
    My first and last book by this author.
    It was so bad I couldn't even finish it.
    Every bit of it was bad. Lanuage, characters, and plot though I couldn't even see one developing. Really what can one say about the worst book ever read or listen too.
    Felt sorry for the reader that had to read this through, and couldn't just delete it.
    Which I did before even getting through part one.

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "It was okay"
    Overall

    A little slow and not much action.
    An okay story line, wanted to hear it because of the movie coming out. Don't think I much care to see the movie now.
