    In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You're about to get a visitor. It's an Israeli cop, and she's tailing a man who's smuggled out an extraordinary relic - a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon. Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses? He looks at the cop. She's not laughing.

    I found this book hard to follow. I had to back up several times to relisten to it. I guess I had thought this was a Davenport novel, but it is a Flowers novel. I guess I should have looked at the title. John Sanford does not have a good range of different voices, so I had a hard time figuring out who was talking. I just found this book to be far fetched, and not very captivating.

    Virgil's always been known for having a somewhat active, er, social life, but he's probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort.

    On the 85th floor of a glittering high-rise in Los Angeles, Robert Tarza steps into the lobby of the Marbury Marfan law firm to discover his partner Simon Rafer lying in a pool of blood - an ornate dagger plunged into his back. Robert had worked with Simon for decades, and their relationship was fraught with conflict. But he never imagined he would wind up as the prime suspect for his colleague’s murder. As the evidence stacks up against him with frightening speed, he quickly falls from his respected position to that of a criminal dragged through the tabloids.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    This is one strange book. A woman plans her disappearance so that it appears her husband has murdered her. It is amazing how she plans it, and it seems so hopeless that her husband would be charged with her murder. Julia Whelan just cannot do a male voice. Her male voices are very feminine.

    Haunted by the past, John Rain kills to order and leaves no trace, but the death at his hand of an old man has unforeseen complications - and soon Rain is trying to protect not just his carefully preserved anonymity but his own life and those of the people he cares for. A stunning, page-turning reinvention of the hitman thriller, Rain Fall marks the introduction of a compelling new series character and major new thriller writing career.

    Chicago policewoman Jack Daniels is back, and this time she's locked up in her mother's home, along with her fiancé, her mom, and one of the scariest psychos ever to escape from prison.

    They're being held hostage by a group of vigilantes on a murderous spree, who have gone from killing bad guys to wanting to take down a cop. And the suspense is killing everyone.

    Story

    It is hard to believe that Jack Daniels can get as injured as she does and still can fight on. This takes place, for the most part, in Jack's suburban home to which she has moved because of her mother's wishes. I do love Harry's wit, especially when Dick Hill delivers the punch lines. This is a good read, overall.

    They are the very best at what they do. Peerless. Unmatched. Only fate could bring two such extraordinary people together—or the depraved manipulations of a homicidal criminal who takes lives for the sheer pleasure of watching his victims die.

    Story

    I cannot believe a story about an 8 1/2 month pregnant woman doing all the stunts she does in this book, caring so little about her unborn child. Still, it was entertaining and worth the read. It does have a surprise ending that I had not anticipated, so that says something for the plot. If you love Jack Daniels and the wit of Harry and Herb, you'll enjoy this.

    Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help local law enforcement on the worst of cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the region’s most trusted investigative positions. Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop in the Midwest. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good Paul and his team see the case file or work the murder. Their lives intersect when Ann arrives to pass a case off her desk and onto his.

    Story

    Although I understood this was a Christian writer, I have read such books, like the Walt Longmire stories, that weren't so religious. In this book, there is no cursing, drinking, smoking, or sex, but it is about people who spend a lot of time reading the bible. That is, it is not real life. Really, the star of the story is a forty year old vergin? The plot is boring, boring, boring. They are after murder for hire killers. I would not recommend anyone buying this book. I am glad I only paid a low sale price, but feel I wasted my money even then.

    In a bold novel, Harlan Coben (Tell No One) continues to stake out new ground in suspense, unleashing a haunting tale of secrets and betrayal...and of one man's search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

    Just when you think you know it all, you don't. Just when you think you are at the end, hold on for a couple more twists. I have become a big fan of Coben, but he has outdone himself with this one. Some of his other books are so, so, and others much better. Gone for Good is his best.
