    Some mistakes can change your life forever. For Matt Hunter, that mistake came in one terrible moment when his attempt to help a friend and stop a fight resulted in an accidental death. Matt was convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison. Time that his peers spent in college, Matt endured behind bars.

    Overall

    From the start, this audio book sounded promissing and as the mysteries unfolded I found myself looking forward to my exercise sessions so I could find out what was happening next. The narrator was excellent and the suspense kept me interested nearly all the way. The plot lost it a little right at the end but not too much.

    I love reading books but have used sudiobooks for the last 18 months as an incentive to do exercise (it works!) but had been dissapointed with the experience of listening to some of the books either because they are not really suitable for audio or because of the narrator. This book restored my faith. Happy listening !

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    Molly says: "Keeps you guessing all the way through!"
    "Surprisingly Good"
    Overall

    I started this audiobook with a level of skepticism but was pleasantly surprised by it. The plot keeps surprising you till the end. Something I look forward to in my selections. The narrators also give credibility to the characters.

    In a bold novel, Harlan Coben (Tell No One) continues to stake out new ground in suspense, unleashing a haunting tale of secrets and betrayal...and of one man's search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

    Ed says: "Excellent twists and turns"
    "Good book, pity about the narrator"
    Overall

    I am a fan of Harlan Coben and typically enjoy his books but this audiobook was thoroughly spoiled by its narrator who uses a monotone style that becomes terribly grating. I was looking forward to finishing the listen so I would not have to suffer the voice any longer. I will make sure to avoid any other books with the same narrator.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Toni says: "Remarkable!"
    "Could have been a great book but...."
    Overall

    The underlying story is good but it was totally spoiled by two of the main characters: the FBI agents - male and female come across as totally unreal and following a police soap opera cliche specially when compared with the portrayal of the character of the terrorist which is credible and interesting.

    If you like the type of novels that have a cynical wise-xss NY cop as the lead character then go for it but if you are looking for something more interesting I would not recommend it.

    At the end I found myself fast forwarding all the inane banter passages to get to the end. A total waste of a few listening hours.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Entertaining and engaging"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book. It had enough unpredictable moments to keep you engaged and is very well read. I would recommend it for people that enjoy detective and courtroom plots.
