    Atlanta, 1974: It's Kate Murphy's first day on the job, and the Atlanta Police Department is seething after the murder of an officer. Before the day has barely begun, she already suspects she's not cut out to be a cop. Her male uniform is too big, she can't handle a gun, and she's rapidly learning that the APD is hardly a place that welcomes women. Worse still, in the ensuing manhunt she'll be partnered with Maggie Lawson, a cop with her own ax to grind.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one


    What was most disappointing about Karin Slaughter’s story?

    I have enjoyed all of Karin's books, and looked forward to listening to or reading Cop Town.
    I fast forwarded through most of the first half because it was so boring. Words words words saying nothing. Women complaining about men, men complaining about women. So very sad.


    What didn’t you like about Kathleen Early’s performance?

    She did a good job with the story she had to work with.


    What character would you cut from Cop Town?

    Terry, Jimmy, the parents and all the male and female police persons. Let Maggie and Kate be stronger and role models instead of laughing stock for men.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to all the other Karin Slaughers books,especially Tripteck, don't waste your time or credit on this one.

  • The Skin Collector: Lincoln Rhyme, Book 11

    The killer's methods are terrifying. He stalks the basements and underground passageways of New York City. He tattoos his victims' flesh with cryptic messages, using a tattoo gun loaded with poison, resulting in an agonizing, painful death. When a connection is made to the Bone Collector - the serial killer who terrorized New York more than a decade ago - Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are immediately drawn into the case.

    What would have made The Skin Collector better?

    possibly nothing.


    Has The Skin Collector turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What didn’t you like about Edoardo Ballerini’s performance?

    He was terrible. To sappy, breathy and artificial. He tried to be dramatic and he failed.

    V. I. Warshawski’s closest friend in Chicago is the Viennese-born doctor Lotty Herschel, who lost most of her family in the Holocaust. Lotty escaped to London in 1939 on the Kindertransport with a childhood playmate, Kitty Saginor Binder. When Kitty’s daughter finds her life is in danger, she calls Lotty, who in turn summons V. I. to help. The daughter’s troubles turn out to be just the tip of an iceberg of lies, secrets, and silence, whose origins go back to the mad competition among America, Germany, Japan, and England to develop the first atomic bomb.

    S. Sarabasha says: "POWERFUL"

    What disappointed you about Critical Mass?

    I skipped through most of it just to get to the end.The narrator was terrible. Long pauses after a few sentences were read. I kept waiting for a continuation of the story, this took several seconds, very frustrating Boring Boring BoringThe story was long and drawn out - due to the narrator and the story line.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    NO!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Critical Mass?

    All but the last 10th of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read all of Sara's books and enjoyed them. The narrator ruined this one.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Charles says: "Eh."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story written by another author that writes with intrigue, adventure and surprises.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Grisham again?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of J.D. Jackson’s performances?

    No, the narrator's voice puts the listener to sleep


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Racketeer?

    All, its to long and boring.

    On Spain's Costa Brava, passion and intrigue are everywhere - especially in the hearts of those who dwell there. As the dictator Franco teeters on the edge of overthrow, two couples are entwined. One is a husband and wife bored with the existence they have drifted into, the other a passionate, combative pair who relish every moment of life. Into this potent mix comes a young American seeking his missing lover - bringing a shadow of danger into the machinations already at work.
