    Hired by a prestigious D.C. law firm after barely surviving witnessing the murder of the First Lady, attorney Jessica Ford is deliberately keeping a low profile as she gets a sensational rape case involving a senator’s son, whom she is defending, is abruptly dismissed because the victim recants on the stand. The problem is, Jess suspects that the victim recanted because she was threatened. Meanwhile, she has an uneasy feeling about the beautiful young associate she replaced: where is Allison Howard

    What disappointed you about Justice?

    lots of loose ends. No intrigue. Instead of a mystery unfolding, the mystery had to be solved though pure description and explanation...amateur plot work.

    In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

    What did you love best about Freedom (TM)?

    It is easy to recognize this dystopia...not so different from the present. The quandary is what to do about it, This book brings you into a world where small community based groups have a plan, can make things happen...and they do not end up in some duel to the death. The beauty of this book is that it is not heavy handed. It feels real in its descriptions of the problems and inspires you to be one of the group that can see their way clear of the horror created by the powers that be. The trilogy is terrific and all should be read.


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

    yes. I did not want to put it down but did not want for it to end, either.


    Any additional comments?

    it made me hopeful. It made me want to engage in the world and join with others to take the world back.

    On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two 11-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside vacation town when her investigation leads her to interview carnival cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it's the first time they've seen each other since that dark day so many years ago. Now with new, vastly different lives - and unknowing families to protect - will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?

    Tina says: "Really my rating is 4 1/2 stars."
    "Magnificent"

    If you could sum up The Wicked Girls in three words, what would they be?

    enthralling, complex, important


    What other book might you compare The Wicked Girls to and why?

    It reminds me of The Scotch Verdict or a non supernatural Carrie


    Have you listened to any of Anna Bentinck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    have not but will


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me appreciate the complexities of life and life choices and accidents and the way those choices shape the remainder of your life and your attitude toward it. The story weaves many different struggles together making this extremely rich.. I learned something...this is not a fluff mystery. It is a serious contribution to the genre. So glad I read it.
