    Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched: A warm breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye that vanishes when she turns her head. She has reason to be frightened. Her husband Daniel has inexplicably vanished, and the police have no leads in the case. Without proof of death or evidence of foul play, she can't access his bank accounts or his life insurance. Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin.

    What a great read!! This book has everything a person could want in a thriller. There are plenty of twists and turns. The characters are so interesting and well developed. I'm a big fan of the Joe O'Loughlin series and this is the best yet. The narrator is excellent with all the voices and accents.

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    Story

    I loved this book. I have read every one of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch books. This one had interesting story lines. Harry's new partner is a good addition to the series. I enjoyed watching her development as Harry trained her. There was the political intrigue that has been so fascinating in prior books. I am disappointed to see people giving the book lower ratings because they didn't like the narrator (although I'm sometimes guilty of the same thing). I didn't think he was bad. He has a nice, rich voice. Unlike some others, I liked him so much more than Len Cariou, whose old gravelly voice made listening irritating and eventually impossible. I highly recommend the book to anyone who loves Harry.

    In Southeast Minnesota, down on the Mississippi, a school board meeting is coming to an end. The board chairman announces that the rest of the meeting will be closed, due to personnel issues. "Issues" is correct. The proposal up for a vote before them is whether to authorize the killing of a local reporter. The vote is four to one in favor.

    John Sandford is back!! I thought his last couple of Davenport books were subpar and boring.Until now I hadn't been a big fan of Virgil Flowers, mostly because of his dopey behavior with women. What a pleasant, wonderful surprise this book was. Virgil's love life is kept to a minimum and the story focuses on his police work and relationships with a hugely entertaining supporting cast. I don't like to talk about the plot because I'm tired of reviewers putting out spoilers. But the book was such a good time. And the narrator is outstanding.

    Sheriff Joanna Brady must solve two perplexing cases that may be tied together in New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance's thrilling tale of suspense that brings to life Arizona's Cochise County and the desert Southwest in all its beauty and mystery. An old woman, a hoarder, is dying of emphysema in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. In cleaning out her house, her daughter, Liza Machett, discovers a fortune in hundred dollar bills hidden in the tall stacks of books and magazines that crowd every corner.

    Story

    Another good one from J.A. Jance. The narration was terrible. The book was not "performed." It was simply read. For the first 1/3 of the book there was no voice change at all from man to woman to adult to child. An identical voice for all. This meant paying close attention to a conversation because it was easy to lose track of who was talking. Then suddenly, one of the lead characters developed a slight Boston accent. This (as opposed to the story line) almost made me jump out of my chair. Then the accent went away; later it came back; and so on. There were a few other stabs at the occasional accent, but for the most part everyone had the same voice. This was really strange.

    The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner. Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Probably


    Would you recommend The Profiler's Daughter to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book, but not the audio version.


    What didn’t you like about Gabrielle de Cuir’s performance?

    I didn't like anything about it. The voices of the men were TERRIBLE. The women weren't much better. Everyone sounded phony. Many of the the voices made me cringe.


    Was The Profiler's Daughter worth the listening time?

    There were some enjoyable parts, but the narrator was so bad I almost quit reading. It held my interest enough to keep going. I would NEVER buy another book with this narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the narrator turned this into something reminiscent of a B movie from the '40s. With a different narrator this might have rated a 4, instead of a 3.

    An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in an instant. After picking up her two young children from school, Grace Lawson looks through a newly developed set of photographs. She finds an odd one in the pack: A mysterious picture from perhaps twenty years ago, showing four strangers she can’t identify. But there is one face she recognizes—that of her husband, from before she knew him. When her husband sees the photo that night, he leaves their home and drives off without explanation.

    This is a very good Harlan Coben book. Unfortunately, the female narrator was the worst I have encountered in nearly 200 audible books. The worst. I have read other reviews panning the narrator and found I wasn't bothered myself, but this time the reviewers really had it right. It is a testament to the gripping story line that I was able to keep going despite the awful female narrator.

    The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear… She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

    I have loved Lisa Gardner's books, especially the most recent ones. This was a shocking and crushing disappointment. It was terrible. The story and the featured sisters were completely unbelievable. The plot was preposterous. The dialog was so bad it was embarrassing. I only kept going because I was hoping to get to the good part. It never happened. It just got worse and worse. Yuck!

    Very early one morning, a Minnesota political fixer answers his doorbell. The next thing he knows, he’s waking up on the floor of a moving car, lying on a plastic sheet, his body wet with blood. When the car stops, a voice says, "Hey, I think he’s breathing." And another voice says, "Yeah? Give me the bat." And that’s the last thing he knows. Davenport is investigating another case when the trail leads to the man’s disappearance, then - very troublingly - to the Minneapolis police department, then - most troublingly of all - to a woman who could give Machiavelli lessons.

    Story

    I wait on the edge of my seat for the release of the next Davenport book. This one was a boring, plodding disappointment. No drama; no suspense. The involvement of Kidd and his wife made no sense whatsoever. Davenport has access to plenty of experts on all aspects of computers, so why was Kidd the artist brought in? It didn't fit at all. Then I remembered that Sandford has a line of Kidd novels. So bringing in Kidd was just a marketing device to pump up some sales for the Kidd books. How insulting to loyal Davenport fans. I bought this book because I've been following Davenport for over 20 years. I was hoping for classic Davenport and instead I got this big bore with a Kidd insert. If the Kidd books are like this, no wonder they don't sell.
