    It's fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. As the residents of Laurel Canyon are being evacuated from their homes, Police and Fire Department personnel find the corpse of a recluse who apparently committed suicide. Clutched in his lap is a photo album containing photographs of seven young women who have been murdered.

    "A little darker Elvis"
    Overall

    This is a good mystery, where the possible pepetrators keep changing throughout the book. I felt that this one had Elvis having more of Joe Pike's personality due to the the narrator's presentation. It is a little darker, not the sprightly Elvis Cole of other books. Still a great story, just a different presentation.

    Five international vacationers, strangers to each other, misfits running from their daily lives, are brought together at the same small seaside Hotel of Dreams, by a rental scam, an international art heist, passion, murder, and a haunting. It had seemed like the perfect getaway for Malibu's famous TV private investigator, Mac Reilly, and his girlfriend/partner, Sunny Alvarez, along with his three-legged, one-eyed rescue dog, Pirate, and her snippy three-pound fiend on four paws, the chihuahua Tesoro.

    "Great summer read!"
    Overall

    This is a great summer read! A combination of a mystery/suspense thriller and a romantic mystery-- something for everyone and a nice, light listen for the heat of the summer. In general, little if any language -- even a teenager could listen to this and not be offended -- they probably hear worse at school! The mystery unravels slowly, intertwined with other events, all intriguing. It made me want to find other books by Ms. Adler!

  • The Hunters: A Presidential Agent Novel

    Story

    Two brutal murders and millions of missing dollars in the growing UN/Iraq oil-for-food scandal have led Castillo and his team to an estancia in Uruguay, where the man they seek is murdered right before their eyes. Who is responsible? Most likely, the people higher up in the dirty-money chain - those willing to risk anything to keep their secrets from being revealed.

    Thomas says: "Excellent, but must read in sequence"
    "Hunters???"
    Overall

    OK -- so I like the Presidential Agent series -- but really -- the first 2 segments of this audio book are an intense recap of previous P-A novels. And then in the 3rd segment, we whip through what's happening so quickly, you want to play it back, because you thought you missed something. It is a really good, interesting story, but the first part goes very slow and the last part goes incredibly fast -- it is somewhat schizophenic. Don't get me wrong -- if you like the P-A series -- you will probably like this, but be prepared for it to switch from low-gear to hi-gear without much notice. W.E.B. could have edited some of the recaps of previous stories and added a few more details of the current story line -- which would have resulted in a more even story line.
