    There is nothing Aleron Pitre can’t steal, nobody he can’t con and no situation he can’t slip out of until he’s sent to the prison planet Tantoret, where every sentence is death. If the prisoners don’t kill each other, they’ll die slowly and painfully from mining the poisonous drug chojal. Yet Aleron still hopes that he can escape.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It needs a plot, a point, and a revision.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jamie Craig again?

    Maybe.


    Have you listened to any of Jack LeFleur’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I bought this book because I love his voice. He was the only reason I kept going. But even he couldn't make me finish this mess of a novel.


    Could you see Outcast Mine being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. Just no. Of course with all the crappy books out there that have been made into films....


    Any additional comments?

    This book had a good start. But it just began to drag on. I didn't know what was going on, and I didn't see the point of what was happening. It felt like the author was manufacturing actions to force the story forward instead of allowing them to make logical choices. The characters were stupid. Not badly written but made to do things that were silly. Like if one had to choose between A or B and B was the best answer, the hero would choose A for no logical reason. And the author didn't write the character as if he were rash or illogical...or stupid. The choice was just there to set up some action scene later on. I was seriously annoyed by this book, to the point where I stopped halfway through it. Right now I am trying to force myself to finish out of pure principle.

    When Liam Marshall's best friend, Alex, loses his fight with colon cancer, he leaves Liam one final request: buy a ticket to Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, and scatter Alex's ashes off the pier. Liam would have done anything for his friend, but fulfilling Alex's final wish means letting go off the only family Liam had left. Lost, he freezes on the pier...until Sam Owens comes to his rescue. Determined to make Liam's vacation one to remember, Sam looks after him - in and out of the bedroom.

    If you could sum up The Isle Of... Where? in three words, what would they be?

    story is good.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Max Lehnen’s performances?

    As long as he refrains from doing an English accent, maybe I might.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have a pet peeve when it comes to the correct performance of a foreign accent. If it gets in the way of the performance...like it did in this book, then it won't finish the audiobook. I don't expect every performer to be as awesome as Williams James' narration in an Australian accent in the Lang Downs series, but it can't be as God awful as Max Lehnen's British accent was. It completely took me out of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be returning this.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Erik Schubach again?

    No


    What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

    Really entertaining. I would listen to her work in the future.


    Do you think Return of the Asgard needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't thing I will listen to any more books in the series. I think that the story it interesting...I guess, but it doesn't hook me. Someone else may like it though.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was written well; good action series, strong characters, but I got bored.

    For ex-cop turned private investigator Cole McGinnis, each day brings a new challenge. Too bad most of them involve pain and death. Claudia, his office manager and surrogate mother, is still recovering from a gunshot, and Cole's closeted boyfriend, Kim Jae-Min, suddenly finds his teenaged sister dumped in his lap. Meanwhile, Cole has his own sibling problems-most notably, a mysterious half brother from Japan whom his older brother, Mike, is determined they welcome with open arms.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dirty Laundry to be better than the print version?

    Both are amazing. I just love Greg Tremblay's performance. But I also love reading it too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Cole. I cared about him. He was believable as a character.


    Have you listened to any of Greg Tremblay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. All are great.


    If you could take any character from Dirty Laundry out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Cole and Jae. I want to see their relationship in person.

    Listen to this book series!!!
