    In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of Madison, a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters.

    Story

    Great read! Loved the story and the narrator. Excellent job! I am a dog lover and I laughed at Chet's thought process and lack of awareness of his own actions at times - I have witnessed those with my own dogs through the years. Well done Spencer Quinn and Jim Frangione. It was the second time I've listened to "Dog on It". Loved it so much again that I just purchased all of the rest of the series. Can't wait to get started!

    What does Cain, history's greatest villain, have to do with Superman, the world's greatest hero? And what do two murders, committed thousands of years apart, have in common? This is the mystery at the heart of Brad Meltzer's riveting and utterly intriguing new thriller.

    Story

    I wasn't sure when I first started listening that I would be able to read this book, as it starts out sort of violent. But, as the story progressed, I understood and was amazed at the creativity of Brad Meltzer and how he wove Biblical and secular history together. Very well written and Scott Brick did a great job with the narration! Great read!

    The first book in an original mystery series featuring 28-year-old Veronica Mars, back in action after the events of Veronica Mars: The Movie. With the help of old friends - Logan Echolls, Mac Mackenzie, Wallace Fennel, and even Dick Casablancas - Veronica is ready to take on Neptune's darkest cases with her trademark sass and smarts.

    Great book, great story, did not disappoint in any way. And you can't go wrong with Kristen Bell narrating, just as she did in the TV Series. I look forward to more Veronica Mars books narrated by Kristen Bell!

    In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren. In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston.

    There are those who walk among us who are no longer alive, but not yet crossed over. They seek retribution…vengeance…to warn. Among the living, few intuit their presence. Katie MacDonald is one who can. As she’s drawn deeper and deeper into a gruesome years-old murder, whispered warnings from a spectral friend become more and more insistent. But Katie must uncover the truth: could David Beckett really be guilty of his fiancée’s murder?

    Kathy says: "She can see Ghosts!"

    Sam Gribley is terribly unhappy living in New York City with his family, so he runs away to the Catskill Mountains to live in the woods - all by himself. With only a penknife, a ball of cord, 40 dollars, and some flint and steel, he intends to survive on his own. Sam learns about courage, danger, and independence during his year in the wilderness, a year that changes his life forever.

    Story

    I remember reading this book in gradeschool and remember how much I enjoyed it. I decided to download and listen to this book as an adult. I remembered so much about the story, and was surprised at the few things I had forgotten. It is definitely geared for a child, but worth listening to at any age.

    Combining suspense and intrigue with a wonderfully humorous take on the link between man and beast, Spencer Quinn's exceptional mystery series has captured widespread praise since its New York Times best-selling debut, Dog on It. The Dog Who Knew Too Much marks the duo's triumphant return in a tale that's full of surprises.

    Story

    Spencer Quinn is excellent in his narrating the story from Chet's point of view, and Jim Frangione is perfect as the narrator! The Dog Who Knew Too Much delivered all of the mystery and the antics of Chet that one would expect. My only criticism is this story had more foul language in it than was necessary. Other than that, well done, gentlemen! I look forward to listening to the next adventure!

    Ever since Tory Brennan and her friends rescued Cooper, a kidnapped wolf pup with a rare strain of canine parvovirus, they've turned from regular kids into a crime-solving pack! But now the very place that brought them together - the Loggerhead Island Research Institute - is out of funding and will have to shut down. That is, unless the Virals can figure out a way to save it!

    The author did a good job writing this story and he narrates it, which I enjoyed. A lot of cursing, but that aside, I give this book a thumb's up! The story has a unique tale to tell and brings history into it which made it seem very real.

    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.
