Jack Lancaster, consultant to the FBI, has always been drawn to the coldest of cold cases, the kind that law enforcement either considers unsolvable or else has chalked up to accidents or suicides. As a survivor of a fire, he finds himself uniquely compelled by arson cases. But the more cases Jack solves, the closer he slips into the darkness. His only solace is Winter Meadows, a meditation therapist. After particularly grisly cases, Winter can lead Jack back to peace. But as long as Quinton Zane is alive, Jack will not be at peace for long.

enjoyed the final installment in the series. It was good but not much action. I did enjoy the characters from other books by Ms Krentz in this story. AZ and the town of Eclipse Bay. That is a good series too.

In the year 2243, the Moon belongs to the dead. The largest graveyard in the solar system, it was the perfect solution to the overcrowding and environmental problems that had plagued mankind for centuries. And the perfect place for Cali Washington to run away from her past. But when a mysterious meteor crashes into one of the Moon’s cemeteries, Cali and her fellow Caretakers find themselves surrounded by a terrifying enemy force that outnumbers them more than a thousand to one. An enemy not hindered by the lack of air or warmth or sustenance. An enemy that is already dead.

I'm breaking up with setups. No more “you should meet my son, nephew, grandson, the butcher, the guy down the street who mows my lawn.” People mean well, but machines know better, so I'll rely on the great dating algorithms of the web to find my ideal man, thank you very much. Soon enough, it looks like I’ve found him - his screen name is Lucky Suit, and he’s hilarious, quick-witted, and full of heart. But when we finally get together in person, I have the distinct feeling I’ve met him before. Funny enough - he says the same thing about me.

When Ruben Beeler finds a rancher friend shot to death and mutilated, he calls on Marshals Marion Daniels and Homer Poteet for help. That call begins a chase that takes the men from St. Joe into Kansas and down to Hell on the Border and the Fort Smith court of Hangin' Judge Issac Parker. In pursuit of the killers, the Marshals venture into the Oklahoma Territory, or "The Nations" as it was known at the time, following a path of bloodlust that began before the killing of Arkansas Bill Cole. Serial killers are nothing new, as the Marshals find out on the Cutthroat Trail.

Fantastic!! This is the seventh book in the David R Lewis' trail series. It was wonderful to connect with Ruben. Marion, and Homer, three US Marshals in the early west. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series. I want to read them all in a hurry but am savoring them! I have been listening to them from audible, they are read by the author who is a wonderful narrator! I must confess I have the books too. I am hoping Mr. Lewis read the last in the series. Thank you for a great fun time!

OK first off, the new narrator was good, but it will take me a few books to get use to the voice as Jack Reacher. Scott Brick was very good.
Second - Reacher is big but his hair? being unkept? sounds like he is a bum He may be wandering around the US, but he has always been tidy.
third- the story lines were good, but they did not connect until the last hour. Usually they get together earlier and blend.

I enjoyed the story, always like Reacher, breaking people’s arms and helping the underdog, this one was a little flat. I will be buying the next one, I guess Lee Child was trying a new writing style, different story lines that get together at the end.
Oh well. worth a credit because of the long running series and I need to keep up with our hitchhiker.

this is a new series from David Baldacci. I enjoyed it. Atlee Pine is an FBI agent assigned to the remote office near the Grand Canyon. She had a troubled past- her twin sister was abducted at six years old. the story is good a little farfetched -but that is what made it fun. Good book
Now we need a few of the other characters to show up in her books, John Stone, or Amos Decker.......

I really enjoyed this book. I liked hearing both characters doing their cases. They did not just work on the cold case. Renee kept up her job with LA PD and did other interesting cases, I like that Harry had her back and she had his. There was a couple of times it seemed to me Renee's fellow officers were slow to help her. Probably because she did report her boss for harassing her.

I am looking forward to the next Partnership. Harry needs someone he does not have to teach, and Renee needs support and knowledge
