    Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I'd never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He'd been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He'd been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone's name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

    If you could sum up W Is for Wasted in three words, what would they be?

    Best of Series


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kinsey


    What about Judy Kaye’s performance did you like?

    Fine


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

    When explanation of homelessness is given such humanity


    Any additional comments?

    This is Grafton's best work. The other books in this series were easily read in one night, but not W. So much more depth to the characters, and much more introspection for Kinsey.

    What would have made The War with the Mein better?

    This was an ok book, but the audio version messes up at the end and I have never been able to hear how it ends,


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Anthony Durham again?

    If the audio is better quality.


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

    I like Dick Hill. The recording messed up at the end and I never got to hear the end of the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The War with the Mein?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    Please fix the messed up end of the recording and let me know when I can redownload.

    Lifelong resident of Texas and popular mystery writer Bill Crider delivers what Library Journal calls “a solid addition to a long-running series.” Blacklin County, Texas hasn’t seen much action since Sheriff Dan Rhodes’ childhood days. So when a ghost is sighted in the jail, and Ty Berry, president of the area’s historical preservation group, is murdered, the small county is shocked. Rhodes must get to the bottom of these mysteries before it’s too late.

    From the opening chapter of the electrifying Dark Harbor, one thing is clear; this is the clarion call of an exciting new talent. Highly touted debut author David Hosp crafts an engrossing novel in the tradition of John Grisham, John Sandford, and David Baldacci.

    Story

    Excessive profanity is used to mask the lack of a well developed plot and sub-plots. Mr. Hosp needs to leave out the f-bomb and G.D. John Sandford and Michael Connelly manage to do this.
