    You will think you are listening to a play with multiple actors.

    Edgar Roy - an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered....

    Anthony says: "Somebody needs to be fired..."
    "Incredibly stupid"
    Overall

    If you enjoy totally unbelievable plots and unrealistic over-the top murder and mayhem, then this book is for you. Very disappointed.

    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Wendy S. Ohl says: "Good story, hard to listen to"
    "Nothing really to add...."
    Overall

    Sounds like Grisham is doing a reading at a bookstore. Wish I had my credit back.

    When John Sutter's aristocratic wife killed her mafia don lover, John left America and set out in his sailboat on a three-year journey around the world, eventually settling in London. Now, 10 years later, he has come home to the Gold Coast, that stretch of land on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America, to attend the imminent funeral of an old family servant.

    James B says: "Brilliant Conclusion to Gold Coast"
    "Unreadable"
    Overall

    I couldn't go past the first hour or two. Never grabbed my interest. I've read all his books and enjoyed most. This was a total waste of time and money.

  • What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception

    Story

    Scott McClellan belonged to President Bush's select inner circle of trusted advisers during one of the most challenging, contentious periods of recent history. Over a period of more than seven years, he witnessed, day-to-day, exactly how the presidency veered off course, not only by its decision to topple Saddam Hussein, but by an embrace of confrontational politics in the face of an increasingly partisan Washington and a hostile media.

    Frank J. Regan says: "Something is Missing"
    "Poor narration"
    Overall

    Why authors occasionally insist on narrating their own books remains a mystery to me. McClellan sounds as boyish here as he did in the White House. It is a painful distraction to hear him read. I may not be able to finish what is clearly an important revelation about a morally dishonest and corrupt administration.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Medieval Soap Opera"
    Overall

    I looked forward to listening every day, HOWEVER, it was very long. The history was enlightening, HOWEVER, the story was more like a modern day soap opera. I've enjoyed all of Ken Follett's books, HOWEVER, this one is a little sub-par.

    Fresh from her bruising battle with a psychopath in Florida, Scarpetta decides it's time for a change of pace. Moving to Charleston, South Carolina, she opens a unique private forensic pathology practice, one in which she and her colleagues, including Pete Marino and her niece, Lucy, offer expert crime-scene investigation and autopsy services to communities lacking local access to competent death investigation and modern technology.

    Bernie says: "Time to end the series"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    By the time I listened to the first half of this book, I didn't care what happened to anybody in it. I went on to something else. It was really a waste of time.

  • The Tin Roof Blowdown: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    Deborah says: "How Does One Manage?"
    "Maybe the best"
    Overall

    I've read every Dave Robicheaux novel. They're all entertaining and complex, but this is probably the most artistically crafted of the lot.
    Will Patton makes you believe you are listening to an ensemble cast. If ever an author and narrator were made for each other it's Burke and Patton.

    "Excellent performance"
    Overall

    It is hard to believe that there is only one narrator in this production. This is more like listening to a play with several actors than just a book being read. It is truly one of the best experiences I've had in audiobooks, and it was not only because of the great prose of Maugham, but also the amazing work of Charlton Griffin.
