    Thanks to an elderly spinster sleuth and her ingenious cat, Christopher Holmes has enjoyed a celebrated career as a bestselling mystery writer. Until now. Sales are down and his new editor is allergic to geriatric gumshoes. On the advice of his agent, he reinvents his fortyish, frumpy, recently dumped self into the sleek, sexy image of a literary lion, and heads for a Northern California writers conference to try and resurrect his career.

    Story

    I have read this book several times. Every time I read it, I enjoy it more. It is in turns laugh out loud funny, hold your breath suspenseful, and always entertaining. I really enjoyed the mystery.

    At first I didn't care for the narrator because he didn't match the voices in my head. However, by the end of the first chapter, I couldn't imagine Kit sounding like anything but the way Free portrayed him. He did a wonderful job with the other charatcters, also. He really brought the story to life and made an excellent book into a fantastic experience.

    Reporter Nathan Doyle had his reasons to want Phil Arlen dead, but when he sees the man's body pulled from the La Brea tar pit, he knows he'll be the prime suspect. He also knows that his life won't stand up to intense police scrutiny, so he sets out to crack the case himself. Lieutenant Matthew Spain's official inquiries soon lead him to believe that Nathan knows more than he's saying. But that's not the only reason Matt takes notice of the handsome journalist.

    Story

    Josh Lanyon does such a marvelous job with his historicals. I love the way he has crafted this story. The dialog, the imagery, the well developed characters all bring this period to life. Parts of this story are just heart breaking, but Mr. Lanyon still manages to pull out hope. The mystery was excellent.

    Alexander Masters turned in an excellent performance as the narrator. He did a really good job with all the voices, the pacing, and telling the story. I loved his Nathan voice.

    Special Agents for the Department of Diplomatic Security, Taylor MacAllister and Will Brandt have been partners and best friends for three years, but everything changed the night Taylor admitted the truth about his feelings for Will. But it's complicated... Taylor agreed to a camping trip in the High Sierras - despite the fact that he hates camping - because Will wants a chance to save their partnership.

    Story

    This is my favorite Lanyon series. Dangerous Ground is an excellent start to it. This is a thriller not a sleuthing mystery. There are thrills, chills, and bears, oh my! Will and Taylor are on a camping vacation from their jobs as Diplomatic Security Service agents. They are working on putting their professional relationship back on an even keel after some personal trauma. However, they come across a plane wreck connected to a casino heist and then the robbers. Excitement follows!

    Adrian Bisson did an outstanding job narrating! I just loved Taylor's voice. He did a wonderful job on all the voices. His pacing, inflections and overall performance really made this audio book a excellent addition to my library. The Fanyons really picked a winner when they chose Mr. Bisson to narrate the series. I'm sure the pressure was enormous, but he hit it out of the park.
