Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    How fabulous to hear the voices of Dallas and Roarke, as well as all of the NYPSD and the family from Ireland. I am always amazed at the characterization of each person in the story.

    I thought that this one was the best so far. Thank You

    As a detective lieutenant with the LAPD, Peter Decker witnessed enough ugliness and chaos for a lifetime. Now, he and his devoted wife, Rina Lazarus, are ready to enjoy the quiet beauty of upstate New York, where they can be closer to their four adult children and their foster son. But working for the Greenbury Police department isn't as fulfilling as Decker hoped. While Rina has adapted beautifully to their new surroundings, Decker is underwhelmed and frustrated by his new partner, Tyler McAdams, a former Harvard student and young buck with a bad 'tude.

    I love this series and was looking forward to the next chapter in their lives. Mitch Greenberg is the true Decker/Lazarus et al, not this imposter. I had to tell myself that he was just reading the book aloud in order to listen to it.

    I miss Peter/Rina and all of the characters and hope that if there is a next book, it will be narrated by Mitch Greenberg.

    Throughout his years with the LAPD, Peter Decker has handled a number of tough cases and strange killers. But few of his previous assignments compare to his latest case. When Hobart Penny is found dead in his apartment, the cops think that his pet cat - an adult female tiger - attacked the reclusive elderly billionaire. But it soon becomes clear that the beast that killed the eccentric inventor is all too human.

    Story

    This was definitely a change from the usual themes of the series but I liked it.

    Mitchell Greenberg makes these characters work. His voice is like being home with family. I haven't been able to listen to other narrators trying to be Decker/Lazarus et al. They ruin the book. Having said that, in order to follow the series, I find my self downloading Murder 101, knowing that I am going to have to block out the sound of a narrator who just doesn't work for me.

    A small commuter plane carrying 47 passengers crashes into an apartment building, and LAPD Lieutenant Peter Decker works overtime to calm rampant fears. But a grisly mystery lives inside the plane's wreckage: the unidentified bodies of four extra travelers. And there is no sign of an airline employee who was supposedly on the catastrophic flight.

    We love this series, the characters and the Jewish aspects of the stories (when narrated by Mitchell Greenberg)

    It was so difficult listening to Mr. Guidall that we have decided to skip the next book in the series so that we can get back to the real characters and their stories.

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.
