    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive, cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova - a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.

    Story

    I'm not really a horror show kinda gal, but I found myself being drawn into this fiction so much so that I had t research the book to make sure it was, indeed, fiction! The added technological "goodies" presented in the download AND the app for the interactive portion of the experience were certainly intriguing. I'm loving this roach to literature and would truly find it a bonus if tried in another genre.

    FBI agent Jessica Blackwood believes she's left her complicated life as a gifted magician behind her - until a killer with seemingly supernatural powers puts her talents to the ultimate test. A hacker who identifies himself only as "Warlock" brings down the FBI's website and posts a code in its place that leads to a Michigan cemetery, where a dead girl is discovered rising from the ground - as if she tried to crawl out of her own grave.

    Dana Nolan was a promising young TV reporter until she was kidnapped by a notorious serial killer. A year has passed since she defeated her attacker, but Dana is still physically, emotionally, and psychologically scarred by her ordeal, with aftereffects including PTSD and memory loss. In an attempt to put herself back together after surviving the unthinkable, Dana returns to her hometown. But it doesn't provide the comfort she expects.

    Story

    Tami Hoag has written at least two books about traumatic brain injuries (Crash and Burn) and this one. This one is, by far, the more credible stories of the two. The characters are better developed and realistic and the story is credible.

    Christy Award nominee Steven James writes action-packed thrillers swirling with tantalizing mystery. In this sequel to The Pawn, FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers confronts the Navy's darkest secret - and his own painful past.

    Another good Patrick Bower thriller. I wish the narrator would get another voice for Tessa. She sounds stilted and like a whiny brat.

    Steven James' Christy Award-nominated crime thriller pits FBI Special Agent Bowers against a serial killer who enjoys torturing women. After visiting the mountain vistas where the murderer posed his dead victims, Bowers receives a taunting call from the "Illusionist." Although Bowers gets close, his insidious foe continues to elude him.

    Met my expectations. Don't know why others complained about the narrator. I enjoyed his voices and give him a big thumbs up!! Looking forward to others in the series.

    Identical, based loosely on the myth of Castor and Pollux, is the story of identical twins, Paul and Cass Giannis, and the complex relationships between their family and their former neighbors, the Kronons. The audiobook focuses principally on events in 2008, when Paul is a candidate for Mayor of Kindle County, and Cass is released from the penitentiary, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Athena Kronon.

    If you could sum up Identical in three words, what would they be?

    Good story. Stilted reading


    What didn’t you like about Henry Leyva’s performance?

    Rhythm didn't flow. His inflection and rhythm was like driving over a bumpy road


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Leyva didn't do Turow justice - so to speak,
