    The police urgently need Harry Hole…. A killer is stalking Oslo's streets. Police officers are being slain at the scenes of crimes they once investigated but failed to solve. The murders are brutal, the media reaction hysterical. But this time, Harry can't help.... For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the center of every major criminal investigation in Oslo. His dedication to his job and his brilliant insights have saved the lives of countless people. But now, with those he loves most facing terrible danger, Harry is not in a position to protect anyone. Least of all himself...

    Charles Atkinson says: "Simply the Best Detective Series In any Language"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'd do the impossible and bring back Robin Sachs!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Stop killing off characters around Harry. It serves no purpose, makes the book much less interesting. Harry Hole is a detective not an avenger.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Lee?

    Not sure but will skip next HH if John Lee is narrator. Not sure if it is his narration or the book or both but many times I caught myself thinking "This is to hokie!


    Was Police worth the listening time?

    No...But, this may sound stupid...should I listen again to see if it was as bad as I thought.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    The rapist left an indelible mark on their lives; now three women must live with the consequences of his violent brutality. But when he's murdered on his way to trial, the police investigation takes a scorching new focus. All three women had a reason to hate him. All three wanted him dead. But which one of them murdered him? Explosively plotted and unnervingly suspenseful, The Survivors Club sizzles from beginning to end.

    Kathleen says: "Wow! Get this one!"

    Where does The Survivors Club rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Love Lisa Gardner books. While I'm not a big fan of Anna Fields as a narrator...she was outstanding in this read! Her cadence and her change in voice between charactures was great!
