    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    Story

    The only problem I had with this book is that I wish it was longer.

    I love the John Corey character and have been waiting (not so patiently) for another one of his books to come out so when I found this one I thought I would give it a go even though it was less than 2 hours long.
    It was a fun quick paced story full of the John Corey trade mark smarta#* sarcastic remarks and dry humour.

    From the author of The Power of One comes a new novel about Africa. The time is 1939. White South Africa is a deeply divided nation with many of the Afrikaner people fanatically opposed to the English. The world is also on the brink of war, and South Africa elects to fight for the Allied cause against Germany. Six-year-old Tom Fitzsaxby finds himself in The Boys Farm, an orphanage in a remote town in the high mountains, where the Afrikaners side fiercely with Hitler's Germany.

    Story

    I really enjoyed Whitethorn.
    It did have some disturbing parts in it but if you can get past those parts it is a brilliant story. The way Bryce Courtney tells the story through the eyes of a young boy is just so entertaining.
    I shared this book with my 60+ Mother and 90+ Grandmother and they both loved it, so much so they have listened to it more than once.

    John Corey, former NYPD Homicide detective and special agent for the Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is back on the trail of Asad Khalil, the notorious Libyan terrorist known as 'The Lion'. Corey and his partner, agent Kate Mayfield, tracked Khalil across the US after his threats to wipe out the US in a horrific wave of terrorism. But after methodically eliminating his victims one by one, Khalil disappeared without a trace. Now, years later, Khalil has returned to America to take care of unfinished business.

    Story

    The Lion is a brilliant follow up to The Lion Game.

    The story is very fast paced and had me hooked right from the start. Once again I loved the main character John Coreys humour.

    I hope there is more of John Corey to come.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Story

    It took me a while to get into this book but once I did I didnt want to turn it off. The main character John Corey might not be to everyones liking, (he has a very dry sense of humour and doesnt seem to take anything seriously) but I loved him. I shared this book with my 60+ yr old parents and they thoroughly enjoyed it too.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    I really enjoy Molly Harpers books and this is no exception.
    The characters are smart and witty if not a little accident prone and I always find myself having a laugh out loud to their antics.

    If you like the Jane Jameson books then Im sure you will enjoy this one too.

    Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood. She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

    Story

    I have to agree with some of the other reviews, this is not the best Rachel Morgan book. Rachel seemed to be having a whine at every turn about her life which I found a bit dreary.
    And like some of the other reviewers I felt a little lost at the introduction of a couple of new characters, I kept wondering if maybe I was missing some of book 9 when these characters were 'introduced' because they just seemed to pop out of nowhere.

    I would still say that if you are a Hollows fan then buy it, its not the best in the series but if you are like me and love Jenks and Al then it will give you a bit of a fix while you wait for the next book to come out, but maybe wait for the price to drop a bit ;)

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    I was thrilled when I discovered that there was another Jane Jameson book. If you have heard the other books in the series and liked them ( how couldnt you like them!) then Im sure you will enjoy this one too. Jane is her usual sarcastic, witty self and trouble has found her yet again. And once again Amanda Ronconi does a brilliant job bringing the story and characters to life.
    I just hope there is more to come.

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    Snoodely says: "Non-Perishable"
    "Brilliant book."
    Overall

    This book would have to be one of the most gripping stories I have listened to. Right from the very start it had me wanting to hear more. The Narrator did a spectacular job telling the story, the voices and affects he used really drew me in and had me on the edge of my seat. I cant wait to hear the sequel.
