    Assistant District Attorney Beth Crawford and her sister, Jen, take a much needed vacation in Baja California, but the fun in the sun doesn't last long when Jen disappears without a trace on the streets of Playa del Sol. Now Beth must navigate the underbelly of a city she doesn't know, and the only one who can help her is Nick Vargas, a disgraced newspaper reporter on the trail of a dangerous and deadly cult with big plans for its annual celebration...on the Day of the Dead.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Innocent Ones to be better than the print version?

    I would not know


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed Beth. She was a survivor and cared for her family. She could be hard-nosed, yet compassionate.


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

    This man is the most awesome story reader that I have had a chance to hear.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Taken By Surprise


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book that I have read by this author. He has made my top five most favorite authors.

  • One Shot: A Jack Reacher Novel, Book 9

    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    Carol says: "Reacher said..."
    "The reader kills the novel"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Lee Child and/or Dick Hill?

    I would never try another book that is narrated by Dick Hill.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

    I would if it had the right narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    He is boring. He does not make the novel come alive. His voice is a monotone. He is not skilled at reading a novel and making the characters come alive.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator makes the story. I think this is one time that I think the movie is better than the Audible reading of the novel.
