I was very lonely as a teen and books were my escape. Thanks to my father who introduced me to the love of reading.

    A madman is stalking women in the city. By the time his victims are found, they've been dismembered with careful precision, their limbs stacked into a gruesome pyramid and completely cleansed of every last drop of blood. Accustomed to working on the most grisly homicides, detective Frank Quinn's nerves don't rattle easily. But when the last names of the killer's victims spell out "Q-u-i-n-n", the veteran cop feels a chill run down his spine.

    John Lutz first book in the series had me on the edge of my seat! I love Frank Quinn series but this one lacked for a better word an imaginative ending. The thought of a madman dismembering his victims would send chills down anyone spine. I did rate the book overall a good score because of the thought and detail that went into the storyline but for me personally the ending was kind of what I expected with a feeling of unfinished storyline on the killers side. The audio is "graphic" just to inform those who may not like that type of book like I do. I will be purchasing the next in the series this book didn't disappoint just unfinished to me.

    New York Times best-selling author Allison Brennan introduces an irrepressible heroine in her pulse-pounding new thriller Notorious, which Lisa Gardner says is, "Guaranteed to keep you up late at night."Maxine Revere has dedicated her life to investigating murders that the police have long since given up any hope of solving.

    Loved the book and will be planning to listen more of the series! I love a great whodunit especially if the narrator is as good as Eliza Floss the words and the voice came off as smooth as molasses. The character development was not long and boring like some audio books which made it extra enjoyable. The book made you feel just when you figured out whodunit it wasn't who you thought it would be. Great listen but I also enjoy Alisson Brennan books and series.

    "Mountain Man" Augustus Berry is a survivor in undead suburbia. He scavenges what he can from what's left over. He is very careful in what he does and where he goes, taking no chances, no unnecessary risks, and weighing every choice...until he decides to visit the hospital at the edge of town, and experiences terror the likes he's never encountered before.

    What other book might you compare The Hospital: The FREE Short Story: The First Mountain Man Story to and why?

    I love it when I get a taste of a book especially just a sample of one like "The Hospital" makes me more inclined to spend my credits or buy it. The narrator R. C. Bray set the tone for the book he keep me mesmerized to the storyline. I like the fact that that the main character of the book is not no super hero but just an ordinary man without any training in weapons or combat just a "plain Joe" that everyone can relate so far. I will get the next in the series after enjoying this sample.

    I used to work for the Telepath’s Guild before they kicked me out for a drug habit that wasn’t entirely my fault. Now I work for the cops, helping Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino put killers behind bars. My ability to get inside the twisted minds of suspects makes me the best interrogator in the department. But the normals keep me on a short leash. When the Tech Wars ripped the world apart, the Guild stepped up to save it. But they had to get scary to do it - real scary.

    Which character – as performed by Daniel May – was your favorite?

    The best performance was Polsin the main characters commanding officer which was done perfect for her character. I was amazed with the way Daniel May voice was so smooth with out hesitation and seamless between characters in the book


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

    The addiction and flaws of the main character touched me as we are all flawed in one way or another it made me relate to my own flaws in my past. The self-isolation and conflicted feelings about his drug habit and how those around him in his work place viewed him.


    Any additional comments?

    The story line is unique and Scifi with telepathic investigators with serial killings. I am going to continue on with the series.

    Listening to Deadlocked 1 actually put you there with the main character! Brian Sutherland detailed description of the characters made you aware of there weaknesses and strengths. This audio is a bit graphic. For the people that don't like graphic audios this may not be for you. But in saying this what Zombie book would not have graphic details? None that I would care to listen to but that is my personal listening style.

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    For over 20 years, Belasco House has stood empty. Regarded as the Mt. Everest of haunted houses, its shadowed walls have witnessed scenes of unimaginable horror and depravity. All previous attempts to probe its mysteries have ended in murder, suicide, or insanity.

    But now, a new investigation has been launched, bringing four strangers to Belasco House in search of the ultimate secrets of life and death. A wealthy publisher, brooding over his impending death, has paid a physicist and two mediums to establish the facts of life after death once and for all. For one night, they will investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townsfolk refer to it as the Hell House.

    The Legend of Hell House is a 1973 British horror film

    The book was just as scary as the movie when I first saw it. The narrator Ray Porter was exceptional in making the characters believable and his discriptions were so vivid of the times and events in the book.
    I would highly recommend this book as a listen if you love suspense or horror. The book is very graphic and I would not recommend it to the weak.

    What made the experience of listening to Darker Than Night the most enjoyable?

    the element that authors use to try to leave the reader hanging, trying to figure out what will happen next. I hung on ever single word


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The author did an excellent job of making me wonder what would happen next.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick brought depth to the story and made the characters very believable.
