    Hollywood's newest wunderkind is Peter Alan Nelson, the brilliant, erratic director known as the King of Adventure. His films make billions, but his manners make enemies. What the boy king wants, he gets, and what Nelson wants is for Elvis Cole to comb the country for the airhead wife and infant child the film-school flunkout dumped en route to becoming the third biggest filmmaker in America.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Lullaby Town the most enjoyable?

    Crais tells a good story that I consider mystery light. It is always engaging but does not require a lot of thinking. Some more intrigue might help. Some of it seems implausible, but the humor makes it worthwhile.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Crais uses a lot of humor and I like the funny side of Elvis Cole.


    What does Mel Foster bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Mel Foster brings lightness and air and a comic's touch to the reading.

    It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

    Story
    What disappointed you about New York to Dallas?

    The story line was predictable and really dragged out. This book could have been half as long. It became boring.


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    There were no surprises and the sex was silly. The Texas stereotypes were too much. Insisting that characters have double names was over the top.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s voice?

    Female. Lacking. Soothing.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from New York to Dallas?

    Sex between Eve & Roark.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader was above average except for male voices.

    Dave Robicheaux had begun to put the pieces of his broken life together again when an old friend turned up on his doorstep, dredging up old memories and new threats.

    Geoff says: "Fantastic"
    "Rain in South Louisiana"
    Overall

    It always amazes me how many times James Lee Burke can work rain into his books. Being from Houston, I know about rain. However, it seems it is forever raining on the bayou. I laugh each time he starts to talk about the rain storm.
