    Linked by the Spirit River, the two towns couldn’t be more different: in affluent Barron, a powerful and secretive scientific research corporation enriches its residents, while downriver in blue-collar St. Croix, victims of that company’s carcinogenic waste struggle to survive. The bad blood between the communities escalates into open warfare when the beautiful Ashlynn, daughter of the corporation’s president, is found shot dead—and a St. Croix girl, Olivia Hawk, is accused of the crime.

    Where does Spilled Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Spilled Blood was very good! My fav writer right now is Dean Koontz, but this book rated right up there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that it was located in Minnesota, right next to my state, and I could identify with the towns and scenery. What I didn't like was the narrator made some of the characters talk like the characters in the movie "Fargo" using the "oofta-like" lingo, or like "ya know". We don't really talk like that here. Very insulting.


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

    All in all, a very good narrator.


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

    na

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

  • The Sociopath Next Door

    Story
    (1672)

    We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

    Would you try another book from Martha Stout and/or Shelly Frasier?

    Purchased this book, thinking it was a chiller, but it was an informative, documentary-type, self-help book. Never finished it.


    What was most disappointing about Martha Stout’s story?

    Not a story

Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    A better ending


    Has Fifty Shades of Grey turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I just had to listen to Fifty Shades of Grey to see what all the excitement regarding this book was about! All those hours of listening . . . to be let down with a crappy ending. I would rather have listened to a great mystery.
