    A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

    First 80% of the book is interesting. Last part is unsatisfactory with contrived and stupid plot twists. Left me feeling cheated with unresolved plot. Don't waste your time on this one.

    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.

    Story

    Oh my gosh, I struggled to stay with the story because of the narrator. I'm sorry Mr. Hammer but your style, if one can call it that, is extremely boring. Plodding, slow, methodical, etc. It's almost like you really didn't even want to do the project. After many audible books this the worst narration I've every experienced.

    Opening in the settlement of Long Grass, Texas - not quite in Kansas, and nearly New Mexico - we encounter the taciturn Wyatt, whiling away his time in between bottles, and the dentist-turned-gunslinger Doc, more adept at poker than extracting teeth. Now hailed as heroes for their days of subduing drunks in Abilene and Dodge - more often with a mean look than a pistol - Wyatt and Doc are living out the last days of a way of life that is passing into history, two men never more aware of the growing distance between their lives and their legends.

    No plot. Loved McMurty's other books. Just can't understand why he did this. Total waste of time.

    On a rainy night in April, a chance encounter on a lonely road draws David into a romance with Jana Fletcher, a beautiful young law student. Jana is an enigma: living in a run-down apartment and sporting a bruise on her cheek that she refuses to explain. David would like to know her secrets, but he lets them lie-until it's too late. When Jana is brutally murdered, the police consider David a prime suspect.

    Oh my gosh. This narrator needs to change his style or give up. Monotonous, boring, wooden delivery. Acted like he was trying to be Joe Friday. Stop.

    Story was ok.

    As the autumn storms of 1271 ravage the East Anglian coast, Crowner Ralf finds the corpse of a brutally murdered soldier in the woods near Tyndal Priory. The dagger in the man’s chest is engraved with a strange cursive design, and the body is wrapped in a crusader’s cloak. Was this the act of a member of the Assassin sect, or was the weapon meant to mislead? Ralf’s decision to take the corpse to the priory for advice may be reasonable, but he is soon caught up in a maelstrom of conflict, both personal and political.

    Not that intriguing. Pretty slow. Seems to be trying to copy World Without End. Needs more sex or something.

    Story

    I love the Girl...trilogy. This one bogged down in the middle a little bit. Poor narrator. An English accent for Scandanavian people was quite distracting. Some were English some Scottish and even a German got in there. It would have been much better to have a neutral accent. This guy just distracted from the story.
