    For 25 years, John E. Douglas worked for the FBI, where had a brilliant and terrifying career getting inside the minds of notorious killers. Written with Mark Olshaker, Law and Disorder is Douglas’ most provocative and personal book yet. In it, he addresses every law enforcement professional’s worst nightmare: those cases where, for one reason or another, justice was delayed - or denied.

    Story

    I loved this. True cases told by someone who saw ALL the evidence and knew what went on behind the scenes. Changed my opinion on the Ramsey case.

    The writer is knowledgeable and lays everything out in an orderly and easy to understand way. Says clearly when he is voicing his opinions, and gives logical reasons why. I would read any other books this writer publishes.

    Little Women is one of the best loved books of all time. Lovely Meg, talented Jo, frail Beth, spoiled Amy: these are hard lessons of poverty and of growing up in New England during the Civil War. Through their dreams, plays, pranks, letters, illnesses, and courtships, women of all ages have become a part of this remarkable family and have felt the deep sadness when Meg leaves the circle of sisters to be married at the end of Part I....

    Story

    This narrator is the same person who reads the Patricia Cornwell Scarpetta series. She reads those very well, but her voice just wasn't what I wanted to hear when listening to Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy.

    I love the story, it's a classic I read many times growing up. I just should have picked a version with someone else reading.

    Scientology, created in 1954 by a prolific sci-fi writer named L. Ron Hubbard, claims to be the world's fastest-growing religion, with millions of members around the world and huge financial holdings. Its celebrity believers keep its profile high, and its teams of "volunteer ministers" offer aid at disaster sites such as Haiti and the World Trade Center. But Scientology is also a notably closed faith, harassing journalists and others through litigation and intimidation, even infiltrating the highest levels of government to further its goals.

    Story

    I read "going clear" first, and this book is just as good. The information is interestingly told, and relies on both believers are former believers, as well as others outside the organization for their insights. While it becomes obvious what the author thinks about the subject, it is a clear and straightforward telling of events. I recommend this book highly.

    The Shooting Salvationist chronicles what may be the most famous story you have never heard. In the 1920's, the Reverend J. Frank Norris railed against vice and conspiracies he saw everywhere to a congregation of more than 10,000 at First Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, the largest congregation in America, the first "megachurch".

    Nukkles says: "Beginnings of the religious right..."

    Found the book to be very interesting. Read well and written well, with many details. Historical stories are my favorite, and this one did not disappoint. I highly recommend it!

    FOR RENT: Top two floors of beautifully renovated brownstone, 1300 sq. ft., 2BR 2BA, eat-in kitchen, one block to parks and playgrounds. No broker's fee. Susan and Alex Wendt have found their dream apartment. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric. And the elderly handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the basement. But the rent is so low, it's too good to pass up. Big mistake.

    Barbara says: "Fantastic narration! Good, creepy story."
    "WOW!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bedbugs to be better than the print version?

    Creepiness worthy of Stephen King himself. This one kept me awake and itching to the very end!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bedbugs?

    Ping!
