    Myron hasn't heard from Terese Collins in years. Not since their affair ended with no explanation. There had been no contact since, so her call catches him off guard. She's in Paris, she says, in trouble, and only Myron can help. She tells him a sad story she's never before revealed: a good marriage, her struggles to get pregnant, the happiest moment of her life when her only child was born, the day everything she'd ever loved was taken from her.

    Karen says: "Highly recommend/but prefer Marosz over Weber"
    "Lots of Doors Opened"
    Overall

    Welcome back Myron. A very plausible story line with all the familiar characters. Coban has opened all kinds of new possibilities with this tale which wraps up very neatly but enough doors are left open that Coban could take Myron and his friends in any number of directions. That said, I miss Jonathon Marosz. I have come to "picture" the main characters by the voice inflections of Marosz so that, while Steven Weber does a credible job, it's almost as if we have new characters.

    Keep MB Sports Reps going but bring back Jonathon Marosz.

    Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent.

    P. Giorgio says: "Depth & Breadth"

    Overall

    I looked forward to this book as I am a big fan of Michael Connelly, and the reader - Scott Brick. The tale was woven in typical Connelly style with plot turns and edge of your seat suspense. I lost some sleep listening into the night to get to a point where I thought I could put it down for a few hours.

    Then ... the disappointing ending. I didn't think it was up to his standards; it was too limp wristed. I will continue to read Connelly but I hope his next effort maintains excitement all the way to the end.

    After more than 20 years of distinguished service with the Seattle Police Department, Jonas Piedmont Beaumont is now working for the Washington State Attorney's Special Homicide Investigation Team or, as it's more commonly referred, the SHIT squad. But the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Overall

    A very good listen; deftly carries on two investigations simultaneously. However, it is plain the narrator is not from Seattle.

    I am a resident of the Seattle area and it is fun knowing the cities, streets and landmarks. It is disconcerting to have so many of them mispronounced and detracts from an otherwise good story. Narrators should review the locations and be more familiar with names and places.

    This national best seller is an entertaining, informative, and sometimes shocking expose of the way history is taught to American students. Lies My Teacher Told Me won the American Book Award and the Oliver Cromwell Cox Award for Distinguished Anti-Racist Scholarship.

    "The author has an agenda."
    Overall

    While there are many interesting and previously unknown ideas in this book, there is quite abit of editorializing by the author. Rather than reporting what most history books have omitted, intentionally or otherwise, the author has chosen, on too many occasions, to put his own interpretation on events. He also slants those opinions in ways that will make you wonder about his overall motives.

    I was OK with most of the first half of the book but he lost me when he started talking about events that have occured in my lifetime and in which I played a part.
