    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    One of my most enjoyed audio book experiences. Storyline intriguing, characters wonderfully formed, topped off by Mr. Glenister's performance which I honestly think is the best I have ever heard in an audiobook.

    Well done Ms. Rowling and Mr. Glenister - I hope there are more to come with these characters!

  • Open Season: A Joe Pickett Novel

    C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

    Would you ever listen to anything by C. J. Box again?

    Not likely


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Chandler’s performances?

    Yes


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

    Nice story for a 7th grade class


    Any additional comments?

    This story was slow and predictible and seemed to be written for a middle school audience. I had to slog my way through the story, as the story line was thin and the author seemed to need to add fluff and unnecessary descriptions just to add length to the book.

    Boring.

  • A Wanted Man: A Jack Reacher Novel, Book 17

    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.

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

    This book was far below par for a Jack Reacher book. If this was the first book I had listened to in the series, I would not go back.


    Has A Wanted Man turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No-I'll keep buying unless a downward pattern is maintained


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The nasally challenged Reacher was distracting early on, and I was hoping it would not last-unfortunately, it carried through the entire performance


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

    The two women characters were well presented by the author and the narrator, but could not make up for a weak plot line


    Any additional comments?

    I'd take a pass on this-if you are inclined to ignore this advice, at least read it instead of listening to it so you can bypass the overdone stuffy nose performance-I should add in fairness that I normally love this narrator.

    Story

    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Ramon says: "Great story with nice twists"
    "very entertaining!"
    Overall

    I have to disagree with some of the purists that have previously reviewed the book-I'm glad that I went ahead and downloaded the book. I am a big Baldacci fan and Camel Club fan, and although the Club is not as involved as we have seen in the past, we get a great view of Oliver Stone. Several new characters were very well developed. Probably not the best in the series, which is why I gave it 4 stars, but very entertaining nontheless. I actually enjoyed the female voices being read separately-it added to the experience. Well worth it!
