    In the corridors of Chicago's top law firm: 26-year-old Adam Hall stands on the brink of a brilliant legal career. Now he is risking it all for a death-row killer and an impossible case.

    George says: "Best of Grisham"
    "Kudos to Mr. Grisham"
    Overall

    The Chamber brings into question and beckon for the ultimate denouement of the death penalty.

    A book with depth and innate worth, Mr. Grisham tells a riveting and poignant story in which Sam Cayhall, the main character, demonstrates the fatal result of the combination of family nurture and one's environment. Donnie, Sam's youngest brother, coming from the same ill-fated environment as Sam shows that by engaging with humanity, one can avoid the pains of alienation from society. If John Grisham tells us anything it is that albeit we live in a world where evil delights in justifying itself and where moral ambiguity surpasses moral verities, we are still accountable for the choices we make.

    Michael Beck is an outstanding narrator. For me, this book was an emotional roller coaster that tested my compassion... a book that merits a place on the bookshelf.

    Police detective Harry Lyon is a perfectionist who likes his files error-free. To Harry's dismay, his partner, Connie Gulliver, embraces chaos, urging him to "get in touch with the rhythms of destruction." But when Harry and Connie have to kill in the line of duty, the ensuing surreal nightmare makes Connie's cynical world view seem all too accurate.

    Dan's Gal Sal says: "My first Koontz, but not my last!"
    "Exciting & Remarkable"
    Overall

    Dragon Tears is as brilliant and suspenseful as Intensity. I would love to see this book made into a movie as well; I am sure it would be as great as the movie Intensity and Phantoms. Horror, suspense, intuitive characters and a sweet little dog all folded into one fantastic book.

    In a minimum security federal prison known as Trumble, three former judges who call themselves the Brethren are quietly writing letters to unsuspecting victims of a monumental mail scam. Much to their delight, the money is pouring in. But now they've ensnared the wrong man and the Brethren's days of marking time are over.

    Margo says: "My Favorite Grisham to Date"
    "Exciting and humorous with clever twist"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book ?another one of Grisham's best. Frank Muller, as usual, is a splendid narrator.

    The Brethren is a pungent study of morality with characters drawn from a clear comprehension of human nature. Spicer, Beech and Yarber will no doubt plummet to the same fatal calamity as treacherous Trevor.
    It's not good to be too greedy.

    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.

    CoCo says: "Excellent and engaging"
    "Brilliant, Priceless and Entertaining."
    Overall

    The Lion's Game ranks as one of my favorite this year. It has intriguing theme, realistic characters, interesting quotes, witticisms and plenty of educational/thought provoking issues.

    Nelson DeMille skillfully uses witty escapism to deal with sensitive and frightening issues. He holds your attention by crisscrossing between the wisecracking hero and the vicious master adversary. The Lion's Game could be leaner and the ending, to me, is deficient; conversely, it is well written and entertaining.

    Although this is an excellent book, I suspect it will be disconcerting to those with similar background of the Lion.

    Scott Brick is a superb narrator. With the exception of the Arabic taxi drivers and Boris the Russian, all his characters sound the same. Okay, not all narrators are as adept as Michael Beck or Frank Muller.

He signs on with the government's Anti-Terrorist Task Force in an attempt to stop an alleged Libyan terrorist known simply as "The Lion". The Lion has the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey. And now he's loose in America. Can John Corey stop him?

    The long-awaited new legal thriller from John Grisham is here. In The Summons, law professor Ray Atlee and his black-sheep brother are called home by their ailing father, the Judge, for a family meeting that never takes place. The Judge dies too soon, and in doing so leaves behind a shocking secret known only to Ray. And perhaps someone else.

    Michelle says: "Unremarkable"
    "Oh Boy! Two Thumbs Down"
    Overall

    Today, October 5th, I login to Audible and noticed The Summons is on the top 10 buyers list. Oh boy, I think many of these buyers are going to be disappointed.

    There are two reasons why I finished The Summons: Michael Beck is the narrator and I am a Grisham enthusiast.

    Having read The Last Juror, one of Mr. Grisham's best narrated by Michael Beck, I found it exciting to be back in Clanton Mississippi with characters like Harry Rex; however, The Summons was tedious. The story line was... The plot was to keep you riveted wondering where did the money come from, who else was after this money and did the judge really die of cancer. At the end, for me, the book was disappointing and weak.

    If the story is boring, then give me some interesting information to ponder, some new words, some interesting quotes, great jokes, introduce me to some other work. There was nothing. Chapter 31 has some interesting data on Tort litigation, which Mr. Grisham covered extensively in his other great book The King of Tort.

    For the listeners who also like to read along, the hard cover is also lacking. The book is mostly comprised of four and five word simple sentences and there are no words beyond grade school vocabulary. I had read Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov prior to reading The Last Summons, and my goodness, it was the equivalent of going to University for a few semesters and then to grade school. The Summons offers no educational challenges.

    The only good element about The Summons is the narrator and it has a nice twist at the end.

    On the morning that will mark the end of the world they have known, Molly and Neil Sloan awaken to the drumbeat of rain on their roof. It has haunted their sleep, invaded their dreams, and now they rise to find a luminous silvery downpour drenching their small California mountain town. A strange scent hangs faintly in the air, and the young couple cannot shake the sense of something wrong.

    Jaimie says: "And the point was...?"
    "Dean Koontz is still a master storyteller."
    Overall

    "Wow" A sci-fi version of Genesis 6-8, Noah's Ark. If you enjoyed Fear Nothing, Seize the Night or Sole Survivor, you will no doubt enjoy The Taking.

    Once again, Dean Koontz has captured me with his mastery for descriptions, his vast vocabulary, his reverence for children, animals, nature and of course the extraordinary heroine. I love the way he writes this scary, spine-chilling novel with a poetic panache. Just as Intensity and Rivers of the Dark Heart, this book is fast pace. The narrator's persuasive voice and keeping with the pace makes this book enjoyable. I have to agree with one review stating the narrator's male voice is not very good; nevertheless, Ari Meyers is an effective narrator and did a great job of the other characters.

    Jamie from Tulsa, is correct when saying, "Her husband Neil might as well have been a potted plant with a shotgun." LOL. Yes, Neil and other characters were somewhat two-dimensional, but Dean Koontz is still a master storyteller who introduces his readers to other great works and authors. His many quotes aroused my curiosity for the work of T.S. Eliot and provided me with a plethora of new words.
