    The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people's minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant, and in the world of Scion, she commits treason simply by breathing.... It is raining the day her life changes forever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford - a city kept secret for 200 years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race.

    Story

    Don't believe the hype! I give the author credit for creating a somewhat interesting "spirit" world. However, once you get past the novelty of life in the non corporal realm, you quickly get bored with the plot. I also don't understand the infatuation with the narrator. She made the main character sound so depressing. I wish a had a remote to fast forward. Seriously. A seven book series? For me, it's one and done.

    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    What made the experience of listening to The Book Case the most enjoyable?

    Always a treat to listen to Scott Brick narrate a DeMille story.


    What other book might you compare The Book Case to and why?

    Young Sherlock Holmes,


    Which character ??? as performed by Scott Brick ??? was your favorite?

    Corey, of course.


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

    It was a nice introduction to young detective Corey with just a glimpse of the sarcasm and humor he will develop later. I love the guy. One of my favorite characters of all time. The only drawback is that it was limited by being a short story. The whole thing was solved in less than a day. Felt a little but like a TV episode. Otherwise it would have gotten the fifth star.
