    This is definitely a good listen. Fast paced and there are more twists and turns than your best roller coaster. If you want a book to take your mind off that long drive to the office or grandma’s house, this will fill the bill.

    All the good sheriff of Prophecy County, Oklahoma, wanted out of his well-earned vacation to Las Vegas was some fun and relaxation. Milt certainly didn't gamble on finding his own kin embroiled in murder and battery: but that's exactly what he's dealt in Vegas Nerve.

    Overall

    This is a top-notch listen. Fast paced and with so many twists and turns your are really at a loss to say, “Who did it.” The good old boy sheriff musters his family to find out the central question. Controlling them and keeping them on the trail is like herding cats…very dynamic cats at that. If you listen, as I do, to books on the way to the office, you will not want to turn your IPod off when you arrive. Yes, it is that good.

    Overall

    What a unique twist to an old legend. This is certainly fast paced and action packed. It is just the thing to make that long commute to the office go by in a blink. The only problem is, when you get there, wil not want to go in. You just want to sit there and hear more. Great book! I, like the previous reviewer, would like hear other books by Mr. Driver. If this is his first, he has a bright future ahead of him.

    FBI Agent Pendergast has taken Constance on a whirlwind Grand Tour. They head to Tibet, where Pendergast intensively trained in martial arts and spiritual studies. At a remote monastery, they learn that a rare and dangerous artifact the monks have been guarding for generations has been stolen. Pendergast agrees to take up the search. The trail leads him and Constance to the maiden voyage of the Queen Victoria passenger liner - and to an Atlantic crossing fraught with terror.

    Henrik says: "Answer to two of the questions you might have ..."
    "The best yet!"
    Overall

    This is the best in the series. You see the human side of agent Pendergast. He is not the wall of all knowing steel he has been in previous books. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. I wish Audible had a program where they would alert subscribers of new additions of their favorite authors. Preston and Child would be on the top of my list. Bravo to you both!

    Overall

    I did not like this one. It was very slow and drawn out. You know that a book has lost your interest when you haven’t a clue who the characters are much less care. At the end, the murderer was revealed and I still don’t remember him/her. The reader doses not help the situation. There is no suspense in her voice. She might be good reading a romance novel but is atrocious with a mystery. Who knows, you may like this one. But, as for me, it was just so much compost.

    Rising out of the Nevada canyons, Utopia is a theme park so technologically advanced as to be awe-inspiring. But serious mishaps are starting to cause concern, and things turn from bad to worse when a group of mercenaries infiltrates the park's computerized infrastructure, holding the entire park hostage. The engineer who designed the park now must find a way to save it.

    Patti says: "Utopia (unabridged)"
    "A must listen"
    Overall

    I will never look at an amusement park the same way again. We all know there must be a “behind the curtain” where the magic is made. However, the thought of evils lurking there has never crossed my mind. This book is better than a roller costar. You will love the build to the top, the screaming plunges and the twists and turns are to die for…yes die for.

    Helen Bradley is mystified by two things: marriage and murder. Her beloved husband has suddenly left on a business assignment, offering her no explanation. What made him go so abruptly, with no concern for her feelings? Losing herself in work, Helen focuses her attention on her latest case: investigating the murder of the town mayor. As the ex-policewoman scrambles to resolve the crime, she also worries about what has happened to her husband.

    I listen to books in my car on the way to and from work and on trips. Therefore, audio books must have plenty of action and a good plot to keep my somewhat divided attention. This book has a little action but the plot (mystery) is what gets you. Who in the heck did it and why? And just when you think you know who did it…well that would be telling. This is definitely a book that will keep your interest in the car or at home by the fire. It was a delight for me. See what you think.

    From the depths of the Indian Ocean, a horrific plague has arisen to devastate humankind - a disease that's unknown, unstoppable, and deadly. But it is merely a harbinger of the doom that is to follow. Aboard a cruise liner transformed into a makeshift hospital, Dr. Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis, operatives of SIGMA Force, search for answers to the bizarre affliction. But there are others with far less altruistic intentions.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "A fun book"
    "This is one you won't want to put down."
    Overall

    This is the first book by James Rollins I have listened to and I must say it was a delight. A thriller that mixes reality and fantasy is just my cup of tea. Rollins keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting to know more and then he delivers the twist. Great book!

    When the skeleton of a young girl, not yet a teenager, is discovered in Acadia, Canada, Tempe Brennan is reminded of Evangelina, her best friend in her preteen years, who was mysteriously taken away when she was 12. Evangelina was from strange and faraway Acadia. She was named after Evangeline in the Longfellow poem, and loved poetry. Tempe found her exotic and glamorous, and then suddenly she was gone, and Tempe was told not to try to find her, that she was "dangerous".

    Overall

    I almost turned off my IPod. The first half was far too technical. When you have to define every other word, you bring the rhythm of the plot to a halt. We should have cared about the main character but for the first half I could not see the point. Then came the second half and this is when the author grabbed me. That is when you get the inkling that the crime(s) are the worst imaginable and you get into the who done it mind frame. Suffer the beginning and you might like how it ends.

    A dinner party at an English mansion with some stuffy, not-very-close friends is not exactly Jude's cup of tea. But the practically mummified torso of a woman found in the cellar is much more up Jude's alley. Once again, the two middle-aged women from Fethering, Jude and her reluctant neighbor, Carole, find themselves embroiled in another puzzling whodunit.

    Overall

    This was a very enjoyable listen. Bodies were not popping in and out. Shady characters were not doing their worst. There was just the central mystery, “The Torso in the Town.” The author took this one event and masterfully wove a fantastic mystery with very believable characters that kept me guessing to the end. I usually need lots of action to keep me interested. Not so here. The well crafted mystery was the thing that kept me wanting more. This is the first book by Simon Brett that I have listened to. It will not be my last. Want a good mystery? This will not disappoint.
