    A nine-year-old boy is found murdered at the bottom of a well near a popular beach resort in southern Italy. In what looks like a hopeless case for Guido Guerrieri, a Senegalese peddler is accused of the crime. Faced with small-town racism, Guido attempts to exploit the esoteric workings of the Italian courts. The voice of Sean Barrett brings this gritty Italian detective series to life.

    What would have made Involuntary Witness better?

    the crux of the entire story was just really very lackluster. the characters were boring and it was just not exactly a page turner. i listened to this book while driving and it nearly put me to sleep on the road.

    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?

    What did you love best about The Wicked Girls?

    this book was a great read (listen). the storyteller used some voices for certain characters that were a little annoying, but it was tolerable. the story line weaves together very nciely - and there were only a few things that i felt were left unexplained.
    my emotions were torn about the end of the book. i felt like it was a good ending....but not necessarily the "happy ending" for the characters that you grow close to.

    A compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity, In One Person is a story of unfulfilled love—tormented, funny, and affecting—and an impassioned embrace of our sexual differences. Billy, the bisexual narrator and main character of In One Person, tells the tragicomic story (lasting more than half a century) of his life as a “sexual suspect,” a phrase first used by John Irving in 1978 in his landmark novel of “terminal cases,” The World According to Garp.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    if you've read 1 dan brown book, then this is very similar. langdon's character is still very bland. but very interesting facts and discoveries.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Symbol?

    the development of the antagonist(s)


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    maybe
