    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "Tremendous Book, Captivating and Insightful"

    Would you listen to Gone Girl again? Why?

    Yes. She portrays a victim who is not, shows a damaged woman, with all odds against her, finding justice of a kind. Also, the book is thrilling & characters behaviours make sense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Uplifting in a way. Courage shown.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Will spoil the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several, again don't want to ruin this book for those yet to read it.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book, get all Ms. Flynn's books. You will be most pleased, I believe, with your purchase.

    Absalom “Abbie” Kearney grew up an outsider in her own hometown. Even being the adopted daughter of a revered cop couldn’t keep Abbie’s troubled past from making her a misfit in the working-class Irish American enclave of South Buffalo. And now, despite a Harvard degree and a police detective’s badge, she still struggles to earn the respect and trust of those she’s sworn to protect. But all that may change, once the killing starts. When Jimmy Ryan’s mangled corpse is found in a local church basement, this sadistic sacrilege sends a bone-deep chill through the winter-whipped city.

    Deborah says: "VERY GOOD first effort!"
    "Harsh reading; not able to follow the story line."

    It's hard to find work as a doctor when using your real name will get you killed. So hard that when a reclusive billionaire offers Dr. Peter Brown, aka Pietro Brnwa, a job accompanying a sexy but self-destructive paleontologist on the world's worst field assignment, Brown has no real choice but to say yes. Even if it means that an army of murderers, mobsters, and international drug dealers-not to mention the occasional lake monster-are about to have a serious Pietro Brnwa problem.

    Edward says: "Disappointing."
    "First Book was OUTSTANDING. LAUGH OUT LOUD listen"

    Yes, I would certainly buy another Bazell book. This one didn't hit the mark, yet
    his first book set the bar extremely high.
