An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.
I started listening to the audio book on Monday evening. I had the intention of listening to it in the evenings before I went to bed. Well, I have not been able to stop listening. Needless to say, I haven't gotten much work done in the last two days. I love this story!

With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.
What made the experience of listening to Fire and Fury the most enjoyable?
It brings together the events that we have seen in the news. It definitely connects the dots.
Any additional comments?
This is a must-read for anyone who is interested in fully understanding the fascinating moment of history we are enduring in our politics.

The Hunger Fix lays out a science-based three-stage plan that shows us how to break our addiction to False Fixes and replace them with healthier rewards. Fun fitness activities, customized meal plans, and delicious, satisfying recipes are designed to trigger the specific neurochemical cascade that stimulates your body’s reward system, reclaims your hijacked brain, and supports your lifelong recovery.
What would have made The Hunger Fix better?
At the beginning of the book we are told to also buy the actual book. I wish that I had been told that in the first place. The book is very redundant. She constantly refers to heroin addicts, crack addicts and alcoholics. I get the similarities, but it isn't necessary to repeat over and over again. I could click fast forward and not really miss any information. I should have read more of the reviews before purchasing the book.

Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.
No less than what I would expect from Stephen King. And and Franck Muller is an awesome narrator.
Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her “Twinner” from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories....
Loved it! Frank Muller is great! Im ready for the next one in the series.
