With money and hope in short supply, newly minted attorney Brigham Theodore decides it’s time to lower his standards. He joins a seedy fly-by-night firm in Salt Lake City out of desperation. After he loses his first case - a speeding ticket - he’s convinced his career is over. But to his shock, his boss hands him a slightly more complex case: capital murder.

I really like the story and I like the human aspect of the characters, the only thing that I didn’t like was the voice of Molly. The description of her did not fit her voice, her voice sounded like an old woman who’s been smoking for years

This is the second book I've read by Allen Eskens. I think Max and Bodie are my new favorite characters. Can't wait for the next one.

Julie Barton is in serious trouble. She recently discovered that her husband is a cheater. If that isn't bad enough, she also learned that the man she thought she knew and loved is deeply involved in illegal activities. When she walked out, determined to start over, she had no idea just how far the man who had vowed to love and to cherish her would go to make her sorry until she found him murdered - in her bed. Now, the only person who believes her story is, unfortunately for Julie, the one man with the most to gain from the murder.

I reviewed this book and it got pretty good reviews but I thought the story was lame and predictable. Not crazy about the narrator either.

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

When I first started listening to A Man Called Ove I thought I had made a mistake and almost stopped. Boy am I glad I didn't!! I became so engrossed with it I had a hard time turning it off.

Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die - in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring.

If you could sum up Creation in Death in three words, what would they be?

I love this series. Dallas is a badass, Roarke is hot, hot, hot and Peabody the perfect side kick. I can walk for miles on the treadmill listening to this series. The narrator is one of the best. Guess that's more than 3 words :)

What did you like best about this story?

The characters are great

Which scene was your favorite?

Telling Edward he had no self termination order

Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Loved the fact that 3 different people narrated it instead of 1 person trying to do 3 different characters . Took this on a beac vacation and had a hard time putting it down long enough to get into the water!
