Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

What made the experience of listening to Never Go Back the most enjoyable?

I enjoy the reader Dick Hill. The story was a typical Jack Reacher, which is no more and no less than I expected.

From the internationally best-selling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words "I was told that my father was killed in the war"....

What did you like best about Kill Alex Cross? What did you like least?

I think James Patterson is Crossed out, the story was predictable and even though I have always enjoyed the Cross series, this last book was disappointing. Hope the next one is better.

Has Kill Alex Cross turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Which scene was your favorite?

Already forgot

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

Scott Brick does it again! The book is pretty good, but his performance of agent John Corey is superb. Great way to get the series going.

I really liked this standalone Harlan Coben book. I was pleasantly surprised on how different it is from the Marion Bolitar series. You can hardly go wrong with Scott Brick as narrator.

Archer is probably one of the best story tellers of his generation. Without giving the characters a great depth, this Archer´s book is entertaining and heartwarming. Go for it!

In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery - a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.

I am a sucker for series, so once I get myself involved with characters I like to know what they are up to next. I like the narrator and the book is what you would expect for the Kathy Reichs book.
