    Fatima, Portugal, 1917: The Virgin Mary appears to three peasant children, sharing with them three secrets, two of which are soon revealed to the world. The third secret is sealed away in the Vatican, read only by popes, and not disclosed until the year 2000. When revealed, its quizzical tone and anticlimactic nature leave many faithful wondering if the Church has truly unveiled all of the Virgin Mary's words, or if a message far more important has been left in the shadows.

    Overall

    .........reading the author's personal religious beliefs disguisd as a suspense novel, be my guest. Not up to Dan Brown standards. Forgeting that the story line is very unbeleivable, I don't like my suspense novels being op-ed pieces. Sorry, I really was looking for another DaVinci code but got a 12 hour editorial instead and I probably agree wih most of what the author is preaching.

    Faye and Jonathan Kellerman. Wife and husband. Each a best-selling author on her and his own. Now these masters of the crime novel are writing together for the first time, thrilling us with two riveting tales of murder and suspense.

    Overall

    I consider myself a big Jonathan Kellerman fan having read or listened to every one of his books. I am not a Faye Kellerman fan having read none of her books. I was excited about this opportunity figuring I could enjoy Jonathan and maybe become a fan of Faye. Neither happened. When I finished the listen, I was sure that part of each story didn't make it in the download. Surley I missed downloading part 2! Unfortunately I didn't. Each story has great potential, each is unfilled. It would have worked better if each of them wrote part of 1 story instead of 2 stories. Hopefully this won't delay the next J. Kellerman book, but I know that's only wishful thinking.

    Double very disappointing!

    Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

    "Outstanding!"
    Overall

    Great story and better narration. For me, the reading can make a bad story tolerable and a good story great entertainment. This one makes you sure that Harry is real and actually working in LA. So entertaining that it made me want to right this review - and I'm not even done listening to it!

    As Clay Carter digs into the background of his client, a young man charged with a random street killing, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life - that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts...

    Overall

    Thank God for the narrator, Stephen Beck was the only reason I listened to the end since the end was predictable half way through.
