    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, her mentor Ranger, and a host of other - ahem - interesting characters set out to find a missing 7-year-old girl. The search becomes a race among Stephanie's posse, the True Blue Bonds Agency, and the crew of one very scary man named Eddie Abruzzi. Did we mention there's also a killer rabbit on the loose? The world of Stephanie Plum has never been wilder!

    Overall

    I found myself laughing at some of the most unususal places. The action would be at a peak and the suspense just killing me and the characters would say or do something that made me burst out in laughter. I loved it.

    John Sandford's acclaimed Prey novels featuring the brilliant Lucas Davenport have plunged millions of readers into the darkest recesses of the criminal mind. Now Lucas has met his match. His newest nemesis is more intelligent, more deadly, than any he has tracked before: a kidnapper, a violator, and a cruel, wanton killer who knows more about mind games than Lucas himself.

    Would you listen to Mind Prey again? Why?

    I will probably listen to it again in a few years when it will seem new but I seldom reread a book sooner.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the last half of the book was very suspenseful and kept me guessing nearly to the end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That would be giving it away but the rescue was very exciting.


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

    Could you ever imagine what it would be like to go head to head with the most unpredictable psycho you could imagine?


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the additional character development. Sometimes I wish the narrator were a little more expressive or enthusiastic.

    Dr. Temperance Brennan, Forensic Anthropologist for the Province of Quebec, digs for a corpse where Sister Elisabeth Nicolet, dead for over a century and now a candidate for sainthood, should be lying in her grave. A strange, small coffin, buried in the recesses of a decaying church, holds the first clue to the cloistered nun's fate. The puzzle surrounding Sister Elisabeth Nicolet's life and death provides a welcome contrast to discoveries at a burning chalet, where scorched and twisted bodies await Tempe's professional expertise.

    What made the experience of listening to Death du Jour the most enjoyable?

    Although I liked the story, Bonnie Hurren managed to mispronounce at least 100- words. That is always so distracting for me.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    sometimes it kept me on the edge of my seat and at others it was a yawn and others it was all the suspense I could handle.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bonnie Hurren?

    Lorelie King

    Story

    Agent Pendergast has become one of crime fiction's most endearing characters. His greatest enemy is one who has stalked him all of his life, his cunning and diabolical brother Diogenes. And Diogenes has thrown down the gauntlet. Now, several of the people closest to Pendergast are viciously murdered, and Pendergast is framed for the deeds. On the run from federal authorities, with only the help of his old friend NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta, Pendergast must stop his brother.

    Lu says: "Need to read earlier books in series"
    "Unbelievable"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the plot line, with its interesting twists and turns but it was a hard listen. The arrogance of Agent Pendergast was irritating. He and his evil brother are supposed to be geniuses yet they both act in stupid ways. The narration is also irritating, especially Scott's characature of Pendergast. If I were D'Agosta, I would have walked away from his so called friend, Pendergast. I should have gotten the abridged version. That might have been a bit less tedious.

    After losing one of its own, Lindsay Boxer and the Women's Murder Club make a courageous return for their fourth and most chilling case ever, one that could easily be their last. A young girl is killed in crossfire after a routine arrest goes terribly wrong, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer has to defend herself against a charge of police brutality. In a landmark trial that transfixes the nation, Lindsay fights to save her career and her sanity.

    Wende says: "Nice addition to series..."
    "More fireworks"
    Overall

    The story grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me enthralled to the last. I clued into the emotional turmoil of Lindsay Boxer, feeling the fears and the joy. Lindsay managed to disprove the killer's motto "Nobody Cares." She cares. Excellent read.
