When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert, he has no idea he's been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon. He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan. But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn't just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth…

Yancy Lazarus is having a bad day: there's a bullet lodged in his butt cheek, his face looks like the site of a demolition derby, and he's been saran-wrapped to a banquet table. He never should have answered the phone. Stupid bleeding heart - helping others in his circles is a good way to die - just ask the gang members ripped to pieces by some kind of demonic nightmare in LA.

Bigfoot is real. Yancy Lazarus - mage, bluesman, and rambler - knows because there happens to be a nine-foot-tall, walking myth standing in the road, flagging him down. Yancy just can't escape his reputation as a supernatural fix-it man even when cruising through the forgotten backwoods of Montana. Turns out Bigfoot has a serious problem on his hands: one of his own has gone rogue, developing a taste for the flesh of humans and Sasquatch alike.

As a replicant, or "technohuman", Detective Bruna Husky knows two things: humans bioengineered her to perform dangerous, undesirable tasks, and she has just 10 years on the United States of Earth before her body automatically self-destructs. But with "antitechno" rage on the rise and a rash of premature deaths striking her fellow replicants, she may have even less time than she thought. Investigating the mysterious deaths, Bruna delves into the fractious, violent history shared by humans and replicants, and struggles to engage the society that fails to understand her - yet created her.

The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn't much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he's content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

What did you love best about Meat?

It was so different. The way it was written , the elements left to you to figure , understand.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Meat?

I cant say without spoiling it for the readers but , It touched many spots with me.

What does Sorcha Cusack bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Yes , it brings to mind the images in a way I might not see if I just read it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

As I said it touches many spots for me. It spotlights social issues in a way that shows how easy it is for people to except what they don't want to face as long as they aren't the victim.

In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, the body nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair — not human — cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make a startling discovery: This violent death had a chilling prequel.

What did you love best about The Silent Girl?

I enjoyed the way Tess Gerritsen wove the separate story elements so skillfully into one .

What did you like best about this story?

That it took women to a new level. It wasn't the usual special powers or birth gifts simply hard training and a heart felt purpose. The women at the story's center were people not just words on a page.

What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

Love her voice and style. I could listen to her forever.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Honestly , I wouldn't admit it to the bros , but I listen to the book a few times . I am smiling writing about the book.

Any additional comments?

This book introduced me to a world I can say makes me rethink a lot of the stories or moments I have been moved by strong women. I can say Great work.
