M. Cassidy - Luke Brodie had heard the name before, some novice bounty hunter working Seattle, catching tricky skips with more success than a newcomer should expect. But the dark curls, sparkly top, and impressive cleavage were not what Brodie had pictured. Emma Cassidy is tough, smart, and sexy as hell. She's also popping up a step ahead of him every time he's close to the capture he wants most - and there's no room for learning on the trail of this monster.

have loved other books by the author but the syrupy sweetness of all the love scenes etc made it sound like a book designed for a 10 years old. Story line thin and predictable

Drew Danner, a crime novelist with a house off L.A.'s storied Mulholland Drive, awakens in a hospital bed with a scar on his head and no memory of being found convulsing over his ex-fiancee's body the previous night. He was discovered holding a knife, her blood beneath his nails. He himself doesn't know whether he's guilty or innocent. To reconstruct the story, the writer must now become the protagonist, searching the corridors of his life and the city he loves.

Good story line idea but excessively wordy and pretentious at times, not up to the standards of other Hurwitz books which are usually amazing! Main character not that compelling

While one feels sorry for the author and his family, there are no groundbreaking insights here. I feel the whole book was overhyped- I am a physician but although the prose is very beautiful, I think it fell far short of my expectations

Number Seven Ocean Drive is a gorgeous, multimillion-dollar beachfront estate in the Hamptons, where money and privilege know no bounds. But its beautiful, gothic exterior hides a horrific past: It was the scene of a series of depraved killings that have never been solved. Neglected, empty, and rumored to be cursed, it's known as the Murder House, and locals keep their distance.

Honestly I am pretty tolerant and love novels with good British characters but this book was absolutely stupefying! I couldn't finish it. So boring, so slow, unappealing characters, narration horrendous- bad accents and wooden tones. One of the worst audible books I have ever encountered.

Annoying voices by narrator, female lead not that likeable and sections with her and her husband kind of cloying. Use of strange words a lot like link and droids were also distracting. Having said that superb storyline and drama and I still enjoyed the book a lot
