As an avid mystery and thriller buff, I am easily turned off by not so we'll written books. This author, Denzil Meyrick, and this first book in the series, was a very pleasant surprise. I very much enjoyed listening to this book, and am on to the next one. The narrator, David Monteath, couldn't be any better. A perfect match.

As DI Gus McGuire’s team close in, the deranged killer begins to unravel, and in an unexpected twist the stakes are raised for Gus.

Am looking forward to Ms. Mistry's next book in this series. I'm an avid mystery/thriller listener, and expect a well developed, thought out story. This book, and the first two books in this series, deliver. Marston York is the perfect narrator choice for Liz Mistry's series. I hope he'll be available to narrate the upcoming books!

Well written and very well narrated! A welcome break from the usual style of thrillers and mysteries. I really liked the close bond of Marty and her police dog partner. It was easy to picture the settings, countryside, horses, chicks :), etc. Real people in real settings. Romance in these books was intertwined in a much more realistic way, not taking away from the unfolding stories themselves. Well worth the credits.

Allander Atlasia is an infamous psychopath whose heinous crimes have earned him a lifetime stay at the Tower, the world's most extreme maximum-security prison. But after a brilliant and brutal escape, the criminal mastermind begins a killing spree that is intensely personal. Jade Marlow is an ex-FBI profiler and tracker whose fearlessness is only surpassed by the severity of his own inner demons. With a record of irrational behavior and a genius for putting himself into the mind of a criminal predator, he may be the one man diabolical enough to catch Atlasia.

The beginning was great! The concept of a tower prison, as described in the book, fascinated and terrified me. A whole book (story) could be written about just The Tower. The escape of the serial killer was interesting enough as well, but the rest of the book was not interesting at all. Scott Brick was great, of course, but most of the events were rather tedious. I listened to the whole book, but was glad when it was over.

On the surface, the court-appointed case that lands on young Dean Abernathy's desk is a biggie; he is slated to defend a homeless man accused of the felony murder of the popular black New York City Police commissioner during an early-morning mugging attempt. But at second look, the case promises to be a routine conviction. The evidence is overwhelming.

It is well written, and has an interesting story line. Sure, the rooftop repelling, jumping, and rescuing a slippery, soap covered, femme fatale through a tiny window, may not be possible in real life, but, you never know. It was interesting. Descriptions of what life in a prison can be like, is terrifying in itself.

A Lincoln Navigator carries three well-dressed people through the barren New Jersey salt flats. The trip is uncomfortable but necessary. Their target has no phone, certainly no email, and never answers his mail. But August Jorgenson is no country bumpkin. Before retiring, he was one of the most famous judges in the country, and only opinions like his fierce opposition to the death penalty kept him from a seat on the Supreme Court.

In this legal thriller series, author Scott Pratt, made the lawyer (main character) into a vigilante lawyer. I wasn't sure if I liked this at first, but I listened to all three books, and they were entertaining regardless. It sounds like there'll be more to come.

At the beginning of this book I really didn't care for the narrator, but as I got into the storyline, I actually thought he was quite good. He really made an effort to give the characters their distinct voices and different ways of speaking. The story got more and more interesting and by that time the narration was just perfect. I'm on to the next book in this series.
