J.D. Robb's books are usually suspenseful but not horrifying. This one tips over the edge with the perpetrator, truly thankless son, student, boyfriend, a total psychopath! In the wake of all the school shootings, random deaths, and other tragedies appearing on the news, this book really hits home.
Even the continuing story of Eve Dallas is not enough to soften the impact of this novel.
This is a continuation of the stories about Joanna Brady and being Sheriff. The plot incorporates several different families, personalities, and plot lines to create an exceptionally good read.
It's interesting to see how authors develop their craft. J.A.Jance is certainly developing and getting better. Then, too, from past stories, I wonder how long she's been trying to get rid of one of the characters--a thoroughly disagreeable person.
Interesting story about Joanna Brady's second husband before he met and married Joanna. Fills in a story and explains, a bit, why he has the occupation he does.
Because of the secrecy surrounding the services of the Code-Talkers after WWII, these faithful soldiers didn't get the recognition they deserved. It's more than past time for this book and it's a pity that it shows up after the death of Chester Nez.
This book is well written and performed as well as an excellent source of information. Most of us cannot remember a time when antibiotics weren't available or a time when many common childhood diseases could be fatal.
The book relates the early history of the discovery of antibiotics as well as the development of the protective services that keep Americans from using pharmacological items that are neither effective or safe.
An impressive history!
Many people have read or seen the movie of "Song of Bernadette", but this is a new take on the Saint who saw the Virgin Mary at Lourdes, France.
Written from a modern viewpoint, Wallace recreates the history and controversy that surrounded the appearance of Mary and the life of Bernadette. It's inoffensive even to staunch believers, but presents the viewpoints in a human way through the venue of a novel.
An excellent and entertaining listen.
Philip Mather narrates this Kipling classic with just the right voice to intrigue and delight young listeners and those of us who remember the "Just So Stories." I loved his voice, so appropriate for the story explaining how the Leopard got his spots.
I'd forgotten about Nevil Shute and was delighted to be reminded by this book. A story of travail and love that proceeds from Malaysia to England to Australia, spanning the years from World War II to its aftermath, this book is well written, intriguing, and will hold your interest all the way through.
Hank is falsely accused of the ultimate crime for a ranch dog -- chicken killing! Hank's adventures will intrigue pre-teens and entertain them even on a long trip across the wilds of Wyoming.
"Charlotte's Web" has been the favorite story of all my children and grandchildren for a certain period of time in their development. It's the story of a friend, very small and insignificant, who makes a huge difference in the life of another friend. Perfect for a child, wouldn't you say?
We occasionally at reunions have a game of Charlotte's Pursuit where everyone competes to answer questions about the story. Since everyone has read it, adults and children alike have fun.
If you haven't read it, listen to this outstanding story - if you have, revive the experience by having a skilled reader deliver it to you. Introduce a child, a grandchild, or a neighbor to this.
Well plotted and compelling, but I was disappointed by the narrator. It was easy for my mind to drift from the book -- one of the few cases where I'll go purchase the large print version of the book so I can absorb it.
