    Story

    Absolutely the worst book I have read since joining Audible 5 years ago. I have purchased and listened to 24 of Patterson's books and enjoyed them all until this wretched attempt of literary garbage. The narrator was the worst of any I've heard of the hundreds of books I've listened to from Audible. Also the characters were ghastly and the story line was disgustingly vulgar. I enjoy colorful romance and murders with some gore, but this was over the top nauseatingly. Please tell Mr. Patterson to return to his former plot and story types and to use some of his former narrators that sounded at least somewhat masculine..

    Ellie Cavanaugh was only seven years old when her 15-year-old sister, Andrea, was murdered near their home in a rural village in New York's Westchester County. There were three suspects: Rob Westerfield, 19-year-old scion of a wealthy, prominent family whom Andrea has been secretly dating; Paul Stroebel, a 16-year-old schoolmate, who had a crush on Andrea, and Will Nebels, a local handyman in his 40s.

    Where does Daddy's Little Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among top ten


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not so much on the edge of my seat but kept my mind really busy


    What about Jan Maxwell’s performance did you like?

    She was able to fall into character very believably


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Rewarding!

    Great mystery without vulgarity!

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers". A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

    What did you love best about Hidden Order?

    The story line was good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not as much as other Thor books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    George Guidall would have been so much better. This narrator sounds stilted and lacked expression. Could hardly stand to finish the book because of the untalented narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Please have George Guidall narrate all the rest of Brad Thors books!

    In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

    Story

    The story line is so very unusual it took me by surprise after each few minutes of dialogue. Surprises abound as I listened to this very unique story. Really never guessed what was about to happen as I listened. Felt deeply involved as I learned to understand each character brought into the story line. Performance of the narrators were not outstanding but the five stars I allocated to the book were well earned in spite of the performances of the main narrator. (Just seemed a little weak but filled the bill well in that I was not supposed to know who he actually was until later on in the book). Great book!!! Recommend it to all your readers!

    Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante? The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction.

    Andrea D. Thomas says: "Loved It!"
    "Worst Narrator Ever on Patterson Book"
    Overall

    What happened to the great narrator usually on Patterson books? This guy sounds like he is going to sleep and makes me want to buzz off too. Love the words, hate the voice, inflection etc. Why did you change? Get the other narrator back and label it so everyone can see "Original Narrator's Voice" on this newest novel and thereafter. If he died, then find someone else that sounds like he is alive and has some realistic enthusiasm for his work.
    Yours truly,
    a James Patterson book hugger-listener from volume one,
