    Sometimes a man can be redeemed. But not in the way he expects. Jason Stafford is a former Wall Street hotshot who made some bad moves, paid the price with two years in prison, and is now trying to put his life back together. He’s unemployable, until an investment firm asks him to look into possible problems left by a junior trader who died recently in an accident. What he discovers is big - there are problems, all right, the kind that get you killed. But it’s not his only concern. Stafford has another quest as well: to reclaim his five-year-old son, "the Kid", from his unstable ex-wife, and then learn just what it means to make a life with him.

    What made the experience of listening to Black Fridays the most enjoyable?

    Besides the outstanding narration, the story was very well written and enveloped the reader with a never ending desire to read on.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was truly impressed with the authors ability to grab and maintain your attention with a story packed with intrigue while at the same time highlighting the difficulties of caring for an autistic child. The main character demonstrated a shining example of the love and understanding needed to successfully raise an autistic child.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when father and child were reunited of course. :)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was truly moved by the scene where Jason first saw his son in the dark room and made the instant decision to protect him at all cost.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book brought to life by a very talented narrator!

    In the Company of Liars is that rare animal - a truly original thriller, strikingly fresh and unpredictable. Told chronologically in reverse, from its enigmatic end to its brilliant beginning, it's centered around a woman on trial for murder - Allison Pagone, who is caught between competing forces, each represented by someone who may not care if the pressure kills her in the end.

    Story

    I've read several of David Ellis books and this one was no stunner. As usual a lawyer is being prosecuted, a sexual affair of infidelity is front and center, and the storyline was all over the place... difficult to follow. The narrators are wonderful but the plot did not give them much to work with. No more David Ellis for me.

    When college kids hiking near an abandoned military industrial complex in West Virginia mysteriously disappear, special agent Janet Carter - earnest, honest, and fed up with the stifling chauvinistic environment at the Roanoke FBI headquarters - is called in to investigate. Unfortunately, there are no leads - it's as if the three just vanished into thin air.

    I've never listened to this author before....my mistake. If you enjoy intriguing twists, descriptive action that actually places you inside the narrative and no "James Bond gets the girl" nonsense, then you'll love this book. And as always, the narrator is fantastic at bringing each character to life.

    Attorney Paul Riley has built a lucrative career on his famous prosecution of Terry Burgos, a serial killer who emulated the lyrics of a violent song to gruesomely murder six girls, including the daughter of billionaires Harland and Natalia Bentley. Now, fifteen years later, the police are confronted with a new series of murders - and the grisly second verse to the song. Riley is the first to realize that the two cases are connected and that the line between copycat and cover-up has been blurred.

    Story

    This is the sixth David Ellis book I have listened to and as expected, the lawyer becomes a suspect and there is always a dysfunctional romance that distracts from a potentially great thriller/suspense novel. Dick Hill continues to be an excellent narrator which is the one asset that helped me get through this book. Time to move on to a new author.

    From C. J. Box, the New York Times-bestselling author of the Joe Pickett novels, comes a thrilling book of suspense stories about the Wyoming he knows so well - and the dark deeds and impulses that can be found there. Over the course of eighteen books, C. J. Box has been consistently hailed for his brilliant storytelling and extraordinary skills at creating character, suspense, and a deep sense of place. All of those strengths are in the ten riveting stories - three of them never before published - that make up Shots Fired.

    NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk hunts an assassin working for a shadowy cartel in this action-charged second installment of Dick Wolf's New York Times best-selling series, a masterful thriller that blends politics, intrigue, and twisting suspense. A number of bodies are discovered on the United States' border with Mexico, each carved with a bizarre symbol: a hummingbird. Detective Cecilia Garza, dubbed the Ice Queen among her colleagues at the Mexican intelligence agency because she's famous for never showing an ounce of weakness, arrives at the scene and recognizes the image immediately; it is the calling card of a killer called Chuparosa.

    Story was inconsistent and took a long time to develop the plot. Certain aspects were cheesy and the title was not represented by the main character. There was nothing Silent about him and he was more like a puppet controlled by a cold hearted power crazed female who lead from the comfort of her cozy desk. Overall, this book doesn't hold a candle to the greats like Clancy and Greaney.
