Part of my job is cleaning vacation rental homes so while doing so I love to listen to books! Mystery books and suspense are the BEST!

    International best-selling author Linwood Barclay delivers pulse-pounding suspense that puts him among the masters of the genre. A Tap on the Window finds private investigator Cal Weaver making an ill-advised decision to pick up a young female hitchhiker who reminds him of his dead son. But something is off about the girl, and Cal is soon drawn into a host of nightmarish secrets.

    What made the experience of listening to A Tap on the Window the most enjoyable?

    I really like Linwood's stories. I have listened to them all but one now and really have very much enjoyed them all. This one is no different.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like the father Cal in this one....I also like Auggie the brother in law, kind of one of those bad boy chief of police type.


    What does Mark Zeisler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is great. And the way he does the different people in the story really adds to this being an enjoyable listen.


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

    Yes...several parts when people die.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great listen. Any Linwood fans out there will not be unhappy with this one! Has you going to the very end!

    Thomas Kilbride is a map-obsessed schizophrenic so affected that he rarely leaves the self-imposed bastion of his bedroom. But with a computer program called Whirl360.com, he travels the world while never so much as stepping out the door. He pores over and memorizes the streets of the world. He examines every address, as well as the people who are frozen in time on his computer screen. Then he sees something that anyone else might have stumbled upon - but has not - in a street view of downtown New York City: an image in a window. An image that looks like a woman being murdered.

    Story

    I have really enjoyed all of Barclay's books that I have listened to. This story is just wonderful. Keeps you going and guessing and needing to know what comes next! I could hardly stop listening! The two brothers in this story are great, and the way that the one takes care of the other who has the personality problem and the obsession with maps is just great. Sad story of a father passing away that brings two brothers closer. What can be better than that! Mix in a little affiar, love story, mystery and thriller and this is what you got! Great listen. I will be downloading more of his books for sure!

    That's what Tim Blake finds himself asking when his daughter Sydney vanishes into thin air. At the hotel where she was supposedly working, no one has ever heard of her. Even her closest friends can't tell him what Sydney was really doing in the weeks before her disappearance. Now as the days pass without a word, Tim is forced to face not only the fact that Sydney is missing but that the daughter he's loved and nurtured, the daughter he thought he knew as well as anyone, is a virtual stranger.

    What made the experience of listening to Fear the Worst the most enjoyable?

    I have to say sometimes when you listen to these the narration is so bad...this is one of the best I have heard. Had me laughing at parts with the voices. LAUGH OUT LOUD! Great story, I could hardly stop listening!!


    What other book might you compare Fear the Worst to and why?

    All of Barclay's books have been FANTASTIC!!


    Have you listened to any of Buck Schirner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never heard him before but he is the best or at least in the top 5 of all I have heard before.


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

    I laughed at several parts. The back and forth between Sid's Dad and "Bob" were so funny at times.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book....great story....great narration.....for sure a DOUBLE THUMBS UP!!

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, including boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

    I thought this book was a good listen. The beginning and the whole love story part was really great. The part during the last 5-6 chapters went a little slow for me...but good overall story!

    In the fall of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

    L.W. says: "Horribly depressing"

    I might although its a tear jerker. Would love this one to be made into a movie!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twist at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this book. At the beginning I wasn't sure I would but by the middle I couldn't stop listening! Had me crying for sure at the end. But a really good one. I will listen to more of his for sure!
