    After suffering physical abuse at the hands of his stepmother, James Garner left home at fourteen. He became Oklahoma's first draftee of the Korean War and was awarded with two Purple Hearts before returning to the United States and settling in Los Angeles to become an actor. Working alongside some of the most renowned celebrities, including Julie Andrews, Marlon Brando, and Clint Eastwood, Garner became a star in his own right, despite struggles with stage fright and depression.

    I loved having the opportunity to hear stories of Garner's experiences in the tv and film industries and his interaction with other personalities. A totally enjoyable book.

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

    This is not a review of the story or performance, rather the audio quality of the recording. I gave up after just a few minutes of trying to listen, the poor audio was just too frustrating to bear.


    Has In Their Footsteps turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Again, this is not a review of the book, but of the poor quality of the recording.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Re-engineer the recording.


    What character would you cut from In Their Footsteps?

    N/A

  • The Racketeer

    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.

    Would you listen to The Racketeer again? Why?

    I've already listened to "The Racketeer" twice. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to listen again and catch all the subtle hints that were dropped early in the novel.


    What did you like best about this story?

    "The Racketeer" reminded me very much of Grisham's early works that I enjoyed so much. The characters were very likable, even if they were a bit shady.

    No one takes readers to the dark side and back with more razor-sharp jolts and sheer suspense than the storytelling master behind Ice Cold and The Keepsake. When New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen has a tale to tell, put yourself in her expert hands and prepare for the shocks and thrills that are certain to follow.

    Most enjoyable listen I've had in a while. The story and characters kept me totally engaged and wondering until the end. I'm going to be trying more of Gerritsen's novels.

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    Story

    Boring, tedious, and drab. I kept wondering "when is it going to get good?" Too many characters introduced too quickly with no essence of individuality that would make them memorable.

    For the second time in his short life, Teddy Clock has survived a massacre. Two years ago, he barely escaped when his entire family was slaughtered. Now, at 14, in a hideous echo of the past, Teddy is the lone survivor of his foster family’s mass murder. Orphaned once more, the traumatized teenager has nowhere to turn - until the Boston PD puts Detective Jane Rizzoli on the case. Determined to protect this young man, Jane discovers that what seemed like a coincidence is one part of a killer’s mission.

    This was my first listen of a Rizzoli & Isles novel. Truly suspenseful and enjoyable. I listened in my car and it made the time fly by.
