    Years ago, they were all the best of friends. But as time passed and circumstances changed, they grew apart, became adults with families of their own, and began to forget about the past—and the terrible lie they all shared. But now Gordon, the youngest and wildest of the five, has died and the others are thrown together for the first time in years.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I cannot imagine how this book was published or is on anyone's best seller list. Must be people buying it like I did, because it was on the list. Worst book ever. I'm more than half thru it and still nothing is happening. What was this book supposed to be about?


    Has The Most Dangerous Thing turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has no point or story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Linda Emond’s performances?

    no


    Could you see The Most Dangerous Thing being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I cannot imagine any producer being interested in this as a book. Maybe a tv movie for Fox.

  • A Walk Among the Tombstones: A Matt Scudder Mystery

    Story

    Private detective Matt Scudder investigates a series of kidnappings that always end in brutal murder. Best-selling author Lawrence Block takes us into the seedier back alleys and side-streets of New York City, rendering his subject with a gritty realism.

    What did you like best about A Walk Among the Tombstones? What did you like least?

    The narrator should only be used for stories in the south or somewhere where slow talking wouldn't be annoying.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lawrence Block? Why or why not?

    depends who was reading it.


    What didn’t you like about Mark Hammer’s performance?

    his voice


    Was A Walk Among the Tombstones worth the listening time?

    not sure if the story would be better with a faster pace
