    Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a heart, a liver, a kidney. Imagine a technology that could provide those life-saving transplant organs for a nominal fee...and imagine what a company would do to get a monopoly on that technology.

    Refusing to believe that she would be abandoned as a young child, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice's old journals. A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts. Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest.

    Story

    Ok, I don't do many reviews on the books I've listened to. However, every once and awhile I feel compelled to do so. I am a mysteries and thriller lover but there were not very many choices left that I have not either read or listened to. When looking for something to listen to while I worked I noticed this book had over a 41/2 rating, I scanned the reviews and was not that sure it would be for me but I bought it anyways. The reader of Alice's voice was slow and bothered me, and I was thinking "Oh No" not another waste of time! Getting past her voice I really started to enjoy the information about the elephants and the characters started to grow on me. I too have an intuitive gift and often wondered if some psychics lose the ability if they abuse it. With these feelings I could not take off the headphones. I thought I knew what the ending would be much like I did with "Gone Girl" which I really disliked. WOW was I shocked! Believe me this does not happen very often, my family hates to watch movies with me and even though endings to a very large percentage of books listened to and read are no surprise to me this one did. Ms. Picoult was masterful into leading me through the story without giving one obvious hint to the ending. I say obvious because looking back after finishing the book I see them now, but in know way did I see any hint because of the way she weaved the story. A bit slow in the beginning, a ton of info about elephants but worth every single minute. I absolutely LOVE to be WOWED.

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    The entire human race balances on the razor's edge of annihilation, beset by an enemy that turns our own bodies against us, that changes normal people into psychopaths or transforms them into nightmares. To some, Doctor Margaret Montoya is a hero-a brilliant scientist who saved the human race from an alien intelligence determined to exterminate all of humanity. To others, she's a monster - a mass murderer single-handedly responsible for the worst atrocity ever to take place on American soil. All Margaret knows is that she's broken. The blood of a million deaths is on her hands.

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Story

    I could not stop listening to this book. If you loved "The Help" this book is 1000 times better. The readers were awesome with the distinguishable voices for each character. The author Kathleen Grissom says was channeled by real slaves to write this story, I totally believe her as I have a psychic gift and also meditate. Although this story is so tragic and leaves your mouth open and very sad, I think the souls of the slaves want us to know that love eclipses everything and to keep moving forward. This is one book that I will remember!

    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.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    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?
