    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    Story

    Bought this one on a sale day, got a great bargain, and a new author to follow. This book kept me on pins and needles trying to figure out the story. Ethan wakes up in a hospital with no memory. While regaining some recollection of previous events, he soon discovers he's in a strange town, with even stranger inhabitants, and trying to leave can be deadly. Pines is quite a story, a scary and suspenseful puzzle that is hard to pull away from when you start listening.
    You may feel you have things figured out, then as the story comes to an end, you realize that it wasn't that simple of a solution.
    On to Wayward (the sequel) and whatever else I can find from Blake Crouch.

    Poke Rafferty was writing offbeat travel guides for the young and terminally bored when Bangkok stole his heart. Now the American expat is assembling a new family with Rose, the former go-go dancer he wants to marry, and Miaow, the tiny, streetwise urchin he wants to adopt. But trouble in the guise of good intentions comes calling just when everything is beginning to work out.

    Story

    The author and the narrator do an excellent job of bringing these unique and intriguing characters to life. The story is scary and revolting as it brings to light the torture of children and adults alike in Thailand. The children can break your heart, as their stories are told, but most importantly you can understand the victims becoming the murderers, in an effort to deal with the horrors that they have had to suffer. Poke is an ordinary guy that finds himself loving two victims of this culture, trying to understand their way of coping with the past, while protecting them from the evil that has shown it's face at their door.
    The book gets pretty gritty toward the end, with the suspense keeping you on the edge of your seat. Well worth the listen.

    Jack Till, who has retired from the LAPD after a respected career as a homicide detective, now works as a private investigator, comfortable chasing down routine cases while visiting his 24-year-old daughter, Holly, who has Down Syndrome. But when the parents of a recently murdered young girl, about Holly's age, ask for his help when the police come up empty, Till reluctantly takes the case.

    Story

    This was my first listen of Thomas Perry and I thought it to be an "OK" book. If not for the other reviews though, I probably wouldn't read anything else from this author, due to the lack of imagination in the book. It reads like a police procedural, with boring characters.
    Jack Till seems to solve the case too easily, with all the handy clues available (like finding the next prostitute victim from the same necklace) At any rate, I didn't get attached to any of these characters, and what I enjoy most about what I read is the character development. I'll try another from this author though, as he does have great reviews from other books

    Fame has its price - and in Hollywood, it can cost you your life. That’s where Abby Sinclair comes in. She infiltrates the lives of celebrity stalkers to separate the homicidal from the harmless. It doesn’t take her long to realize that the man harassing LA’s most glamorous TV newswoman poses a very real threat. Raymond Hickle used to be golden-haired Kris Barwood’s biggest fan. Now he’s her worst nightmare. Phone calls and gifts have failed to win her heart, so now he’s taking a new approach.

    Story

    This started out as a good story of a private security employee, Abby that infiltrates the suspect's life with friendship, in an effort to thwart an attempt on her client's life. She's coming back from a big failure with this case, when a TV anchorwoman is threatened by stalker, Raymond Hickle. Abby seems to be doing her job well, while we see the characters developing and becoming more interesting. The listening went along slowly for awhile, with gathering of evidence and procedure, when a huge twist to the story blew my mind. Changed the whole book for me and the suspense kept the ear buds in. Don't give up on this one, it's a good listen.

    This is a world where sin and salvation collide. This is a world where a cynical fallen angel struggles with the seven deadly sins and seven chosen souls. With the spellbinding Immortal, the riveting series that "changed the face of paranormal romance" comes to an epic close as mankind's reluctant savior struggles with his greatest challenge yet.

    Story

    I know I'm in a minority here, but this ending seemed rushed and lacking in any real suspense. When a dilemma was produced in the story, it was quickly absolved and on to the next, thus rushing the last two souls to be saved and the end of the series.
    I loved the previous books and was satisfied with the final outcome, but something was just missing from this story, something that made all the rest so much fun to read.

    One of the most popular suspense novels of all time. A well-dressed man stalks the high-class neighborhoods of New York City. He is armed with an ice axe. His victims are strangers. And one cop, Captain Ed Delaney must solve a series of bizarre, gruesome murders that defy logic or method. This shocking story has captured the imaginations of millions like no other modern thriller.

    Story

    Edward X Delaney and Daniel J Blank are two for the books. The story delves in to what these men feel and what is making them tick. Both have an agenda, one is killing and very slowly we see what has drove him to this point, while the other is ruthlessly trying to solve the crime while his own personal life situation is falling into turmoil. It's a very unique character study of two men and the women that play a integral part of their story.
    My only complaint would be the epilogue which summed up everyone's future quite shortly. I want to hear more, so that makes the next of the series a must.

    A torso in a suitcase looks like an impossible case, but Sean Duffy isn’t easily deterred, especially when his floundering love life leaves him in need of a distraction. So with detective constables McCrabban and McBride, he goes to work identifying the victim. The torso turns out to be all that’s left of an American tourist who once served in the U.S. military. What was he doing in Northern Ireland in the midst of the 1982 Troubles?

    Story

    Start with "A Cold Cold Ground" that introduces us to Sean Duffy, a good companion cast of characters, and background on The Troubles in the 1980's. This book resumes where that one left off. A non-stop police thriller starting with a torso in a suitcase. Duffy dives right in, with one small clue blending in to another murder. They seem to be connected, but logically they are not, or are they? Duffy digs in, getting himself targeted by various groups, cops and robbers alike. His love life is suffering, his body ends up suffering, and perhaps his future is suffering. An interesting story, along with the absolute perfect narrator pulling us back to 1980's Ireland.

    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

    Trying to avoid scandalous talk about the baby, Alexia flees England for refuge in Italy. Of course, trouble always follows Alexia and this time it's in the form of vampires. Running for her life, she thinks she finds sanctuary in Italy, but that may be another fine mess she's gotten herself in to, no thanks to her werewolf husband trying to drink away his problems.

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Story

    After reading reviews of the wonderful narration, I had to download this book. Now, after listening to the book, I have to agree with other reviewers that the narration makes the book. If I would have read it, I don't think I would have enjoyed it half as much. It's a narration that begins after the affair ended 18 months earlier. The jilted lover, still hurting runs into his ex Sarah and all the old feelings re-emerge. His question 'does he love or hate her', thus the theme of the story, leading to the question of faith and how different people interpret the idea of faith. An interesting and thought provoking listen.

Changeless is the second in the series and finds Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey, quite put out after her werewolf husband goes missing. So, armed with her trusty parasol, Alexia boards a dirigible and heads for Scotland to find him.

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Story

    Set in an alternate Victorian England, this tale is wonderfully witty, full of humor, set within a horrific story . Miss Tarrabotti is what they call a preternatural, that can neutralize the effects of the supernatural. She is one of very few of her kind, who finds herself in all kinds of predicaments that ends up in the hands of the supernaturals' own police dept, thus enters Lord Maccon. These two are always at odds, thus becoming attracted to each other, with banter that delights the listener. Elsewhere, in the story is a group of sinister scientists that are out to exterminate anything unnatural, putting our main characters in peril. The whole book is made up of a very amusing group of characters that keeps us in chuckles while solving mysterious disappearances of vampires and werewolves.
    The narration is excellent in capturing the language and wit intended.
