It’s official. Fortune Redding is out of the CIA and a newly minted resident of Sinful, Louisiana. She never expected her homecoming to be all apple pie and hugs, but a murder wasn’t on her list of things to deal with before she’d even gotten her name stenciled on her mailbox. Boone Carre-Hooch, to the locals - was a drunk and a louse and had shafted pretty much everyone he’d ever done business with. So when someone kills him, there is no shortage of suspects. Unfortunately, Ally is at the top of the list.

This book, as all of the previous ones, has been a wonderful fun listen. I have to say this is one of my favorites in this series. Suspense, mystery and lots of fun for the listener.
I am very excited for the next book in the series.

This is the first book by Mary Burton I’ve listened to but it won’t be my last. This book is a very good police and FBI thriller. I like the way she writes about her characters and gives a small back story. Mostly about the here and now with a twist or 2. If you like a good police procedural and serial killer story without being too frightening for the reader, this is for you.

I like Lisa Gardener and most of her books. I read the reviews on this book and decided I would have to try it. A good decision. Once I started listening I couldn’t stop. If you like a thriller with some true feeling this is it.

When Detective Nick Fourcade enters the home of Genevieve Gauthier outside the sleepy town of Bayou Breaux, Louisiana, the bloody crime scene that awaits him is both the most brutal and the most confusing he's ever seen. Genevieve's seven-year-old son, P.J., has been murdered by an alleged intruder, yet Genevieve is alive and well, a witness inexplicably left behind to tell the tale. There is no evidence of forced entry, not a clue that points to a motive. Meanwhile, Nick's wife, Detective Annie Broussard, sits in the emergency room with the grieving Genevieve. A mother herself, Annie understands the emotional devastation this woman is going through.

Victor is the killer who always delivers...for the right price. And Heloise Salvatierra, patron of Guatemala's largest cartel, is ready and willing to pay him just that to eliminate the competition: her sister. Heloise has been battling Maria for control of the cartel in an endless and bloody war. Now, Victor decides who survives. An easy job if it weren't for the sudden target on his back.

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch a tiger by its toe. It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. Mercy was taken. Atlee was spared. She never saw Mercy again. Three decades after that terrifying night, Atlee Pine works for the FBI. She's the lone agent assigned to the Shattered Rock, Arizona resident agency, which is responsible for protecting the Grand Canyon. So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon - and its rider missing - Pine is called in to investigate.

I really like Baldacci and since this is the first book in a series it’s good but not sure I like the narrators. Not sure if it’s because the female sounds a bit young or not as hardcore as she should.

I wasn't sure I'd like this book but after reading the reviews I decided to give it a try and I'm very glad I did. #ModernDetective meets #PsychicWitch in this #ThrillingMystery. This book is a really good detective story and it has signs of the occult from the very beginning. When #HomicideDetectives Garrett and Landauer catch a case that seems to be a straight forward #Murder they are satisfied they have the right suspect. When a witch contacts them and tries to convince them that the murder is more #Sinister and #unbelievable. Garrett's beliefs are shaken when another body with the same #RitualisticSigns as the first. Tanith (the witch) convinces him she had psychic visions of someone summoning an #AncientDemon. Good book for those that like occult and mystery.

Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes - obscure Bible verses, odd symbols - have the police stumped. Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has been there only a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene.

#ClassicBaldacci for this next Decker and Jamison mystery. This #Suspenseful story starts off good and just gets better! A #Vacation for Amos and Alex that turns into a dangerous situation quickly. They go to visit Alex's sister in a #SmallTown that has #BigCityCrime. This book is one of the best Decker and Jamison in the series. It grabs you from the first chapter and keeps you in the story to the end. This detective mystery is also a #Clever story that has twists you don't expect and is a #Thriller that keeps you guessing. Love it and can't wait for the next in the series!
