    At first, the case of the bodies found in a Moscow park looked straightforward: a "troika", probably three on a bottle, drunk together and then frozen to death together in the brutal Russian night. But Chief Homicide Investigator Arkady Renko hits a sharp and complicated turn with the arrival of the KGB's Pribluda. Suddenly, his access to a routine investigation is blocked. Why?

    Story

    I read this long ago and remembered how much I liked it so I had to try it as an audio book. I still liked it but for me it's not quite a five. I liked the characters, good and bad, a lot but as much as I liked them individually they didn't really mesh together for me. Except for maybe Kerwell and Inspector Renko. They had an odd relationship that was interesting.

    The narrator was ok maybe a bit dry for me but at the same time maybe utilitarian was what they were looking for in conjunction with a Russian back drop that was kind of the same way.

    I'll continue on but I think these are better read in book form.

    Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

    I don't usually like wives and kids in series like this but Whether and Letty are okay. I liked the back and forth between the surgery and the robbery. LOL when Whether tried to run the guy down after he tried to kill her. That's probably why I like her.

    Good story. Ferrone isn't outstanding with accents but I can live with it because he does Lucas and his people so well.

    Ex-Chief Investigator Arkady Renko is in deep on the “slime line” - the fish-gutting station - in the Polar Star, a Soviet fish factory ship of some 250 souls, almost as many secrets, and a dangerous shipboard sub-culture that cares little for the Party, and less for human life.

    These books have a good plot and Renko is a great character even if he's about as sardonic as it gets. I'm looking forward to him being back in Moscow.....or somewhere warmer.

    The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather have stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stick-up men who've spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system.

    I laugh at Lucas dealing with the women in his life. The only people who can get him over a barrel. The rest of it was the usual good stuff.

    Great narration as usual.

    The New York Times best-selling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest - where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price.... The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before - both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes.

    In the richest neighborhood of Minneapolis, two elderly women lie murdered in their home, killed with a pipe, the rooms tossed, only small items stolen. It is clearly the random work of someone looking for money to buy drugs. But as Davenport looks more closely, he begins to wonder whether the items are actually so small and the victims so random; if there might not be some invisible agenda at work here. Gradually, a pattern begins to emerge, and it leads him to...certainly nothing he ever expected.

    Dr. Temperance Brennan, Forensic Anthropologist for the Province of Quebec, digs for a corpse where Sister Elisabeth Nicolet, dead for over a century and now a candidate for sainthood, should be lying in her grave. A strange, small coffin, buried in the recesses of a decaying church, holds the first clue to the cloistered nun's fate. The puzzle surrounding Sister Elisabeth Nicolet's life and death provides a welcome contrast to discoveries at a burning chalet, where scorched and twisted bodies await Tempe's professional expertise.

    Good book. Every once in awhile I think she's wondering too far afield but then she brings it back and it all ties together. Good book but you have to pay attention. Like the budding romance.

    Narrator was better on this one.

    The "Big Three" are a trio of inmates locked up in the Minnesota Security Hospital over the years, each a particularly vicious serial killer, each with his own distinct style and propensities. Everybody feels much safer knowing that they're behind bars. Except...there's a new killer on the loose. And his handiwork bears a disturbing resemblance to some of the finer points practiced by the Big Three, details that never even made the papers.

    What can I say, I'm a sucker for every one of these. Love them all. Lucas and his band of merry men have broken up but it's still a great series.

    Richard Ferrone does such an amazing job I'd feel cheated if I had to read one of these instead of listening to him narrate.

    Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan.

    The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her a job with the Magic Enforcement Agency task force, who wants to know why she killed their lead snitch. Book 2 in the Prospero's War series continues where Dirty Magic left off.

    Story

    I liked this but I didn't. It's actually closer to a 3 1/2 ****Spoilers*****






    The author wants to have it both ways. We're suppose to think that Porpero's cooking Magic is terrible but she did it to save her brother. Not much villainy there. Then there is her friends magic potion abuse. The woman had busted ribs and whiplash. Addiction is hard to lick but it's hard to condemn people who get caught up trying to heal. So, their bad because of magic use is their big bad secrets but it doesn't wash. And frankly I'm tired of the addiction preaching. I'm glad Propero's gotten over her aversion to cooking and realizes good can come of it. For that reason alone I might read the next one.

    Oh, and I'm also tired of her knocking John. He's done nothing that makes him the enemy but she doesn't want to admit that she still has a thing for him so she never gives him a break but she goes to him when her cases get tough. I also think she needs to admit that maybe there is a chance he's changed as well. Her condemnation is getting old.
