    Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers is at a loss: The daughter of her friend Taymullah Azhar has been taken by her mother, and Barbara can't really help - Azhar had never married Angelina, and his name isn't on Hadiyyah's, their daughter's, birth certificate. He has no legal claim. Azhar and Barbara hire a private detective, but the trail goes cold. Azhar is just beginning to accept his soul-crushing loss when Angelina reappears with shocking news: Hadiyyah is missing, kidnapped from an Italian marketplace.

    What could Elizabeth George have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Less Italian language, much less of Havers flaunting any reasonable police procedure without seeming consequences


    Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

    Lynley


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Just One Evil Act?

    about 1/2


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed E. George's books for years. This book and the one with Freudinger's cat were both far beyond a good mystery read - more like a college class for which I had not taken the introductory course.

    What disappointed you about Takedown Twenty?

    Same plot line and behavior of the characters, except for the giraffe which made no sense at all.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment - I had to re-listen to one of the early books to remind myself why I used to enjoy them so much.

    Just as 200,000 fans are pouring into town for Race Week, a body is found in a barrel of asphalt next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The next day, a NASCAR crew member comes to Temperance Brennan’s office at the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner to share a devastating story. Twelve years earlier, Wayne Gamble’s sister, Cindi, then a high school senior and aspiring racer, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse.

    Tia says: "Don't start here if you're new to the series!"
    "disappointment"
    Overall

    I love the Temperance Brennan books and frequently listen to them more than once. This time, however, I was disappointed. Maybe because Andrew Ryan was mostly a footnote, her daughter was a bored "also mentioned", and the plot/character development seemed thin. I was interested in the NASCAR information, but could have gotten most of it for free from Wikepedia.
