The murder of a woman from one of the town's oldest families has Rosedale's upper crust howling for blood, and the prosecutor is counting on Ruby's inexperience to help him deliver a swift conviction. Ruby's client is a college football star who has returned home after a career-ending injury, and she is determined to build a defense that will stick. She finds help in unexpected quarters from Suzanne, a hard-charging attorney armed to the teeth, and Shorty, a diner cook who knows more than he lets on.

Terrible! Shame on you James Patterson! I have been a fan for years, but I will likely never again waste my money or time on another one of your books. It was worse than a "B" rated movie. And don't get me started on the narrator and her over the top southern accent! The most positive thing I can say about this book, besides the fact that it's over, is at least audible will refund my credit!

In death, Didi Storm is finally getting the kind of publicity that eluded her in life. Twenty years ago, the ex-beauty queen worked the Vegas strip as a celebrity impersonator, too busy trying to make it big to spare much time for her daughter, Remmi. Shortly before she leaped from a San Francisco building, Didi's profile was rising again, thanks to a tell-all book. To Detective Dani Settler, it looks like a straightforward suicide, or perhaps a promotional stunt gone wrong. But Remmi knows the truth isn't so simple. Because though the broken body on the sidewalk is dressed in Didi's clothes and wig, it isn't Didi.

I enjoyed the majority of the book. I liked the characters and ws quickly drawn into the story. The narrator did an excellent job as well. It was almost like the writer got too caught up in the story and suddenly had to finish the book in the last 2 pages. Overall, I enjoyed it and would listen to another one from Lisa Jackson.

Detective Porter and the team have been pulled from the hunt for Anson Bishop, the Four Monkey Killer, by the feds. When the body of a young girl is found beneath the frozen waters of Jackson Park Lagoon, she is quickly identified as Ella Reynolds, missing three weeks. But how did she get there? The lagoon froze months earlier. More baffling? She's found wearing the clothes of another girl, missing less than two days.

Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

I found the everyday conversations between characters to be too much. It was difficult to stay involved in the book, unlike many others that draw you in and hold you there until the end. This wasn't the narrator's fault.

What's not to love? I really enjoyed the main character. Like another reviewer, I was relieved that he didn't have a ton of baggage, just a likable guy. The narrator did a great job as well. Looking for more from this author!

I loved Gone Girl so much that I've listened and watched the movie several times. I struggled to finish this book because it felt like a cheap imitation. I won't completely ruin the book by listing all the similarities. However, I will say that while the twist at the end was interesting, it also felt like too little too late.

Recruited by the US Army and Navy from small towns and elite colleges, more than 10,000 women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington and learned the meticulous work of codebreaking. Their efforts shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them.
