    St. Patrick's Day, New York City. Everyone is celebrating, but everyone is in for a shock. Born into the heat and hatred of the Northern Ireland conflict, IRA man Brian Flynn has masterminded a brilliant terrorist act: the seizure of Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Among his hostages: the woman Brian Flynn once loved, a former terrorist turned peace activist.

    Spencer K. Collins says: "Not even close to DeMille's other books"
    "No excitement"
    Overall

    I've listened to many of DeMille and loved them. I did not believe a DeMille could be as bad as some other reviewers said. I was wrong. I stopped listening after 4 or 5 hours. Too boring.

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Gardner says: "Best Yet... Almost"
    "Great."
    Overall

    My first by this author and narrator. At first I did not like all the description and I did not like the narrator. After a couple of hours, I was very glad I kept with it. Good story, the narration grew on me, and even the abundant description didn't irk me. During the last 3 hours, I had a hard time turning it off to get back to work .

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    Dataman says: "Not Your Ordinary Western Novel (Series)"
    "Unexpected joy in listening"
    Overall

    This was my second by Craig Johnson and George Guidall. Johnson writes great stories and Guidall brings them to a very lively telling. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this as much as I did "Dark Horse," but soon I was every bit as involved in the story and found myself putting off chores and listening longer than I planned.

    The Denver Post hails Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mystery series as a must-read. Joining the four previous novels - all of which have been Book Sense picks - The Dark Horse puts a unique Wyoming twist on the classic British village mystery. When Longmire meets a woman jailed for her husband's death, he travels outside his usual haunts to discover the truth behind this unusual murder case.

    V. Sharol says: "Another outstanding book from Johnson"
    "Held me throughout"
    Overall

    The pace of the book is somehow perfect. No time to get bored waiting for something to happen. The narration works very well. This was my first by Craig Johnson, and I've already listened to another ("Cold Dish") that I also enjoyed immensely. Johnson and Guidall -- great team.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Great story, terrific narrator."
    Overall

    This is my first Connelly book and I am very glad to have found him. The last hour and a half I could not stop listening. Grupper is a terrific narrator. I hope to hear him again on future books. I will listen to more by Connelly.

  • Alex Cross's TRIAL

    From his grandmother, Alex Cross has heard the story of his great uncle Abraham and his struggles for survival in the era of the Ku Klux Klan. Now, Alex passes the family tale along to his own children in a novel he's written - a novel called Trial.

    Carolyn says: "In a word ... miserable"
    "Terrific"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book tremendously. Some of it made me cringe, but I always wanted to listen more. I must agree, however, with some other reviewers: it definitely should not say Alex Cross in the title. Although Abraham Cross is an interesting character, the story is not much about him. I was looking for an Alex Cross as I have heard they are good. Now I wonder if the author & publisher can be trusted.
