Dr. Diane Buckley, a talented freelance forensic psychologist, is drafted in to examine a grisly murder – a body found in a children's playground. The murder carries all the hallmarks of one of her most famous incarcerated clients, 'The Playground Killer' (aka Alfred Dinklage). In a series of intimate 1:1 sessions, Buckley has to race against time to unpick the facts and delve into Dinklage's often manipulative, complicated mind to understand his past whilst striving to prevent further murders....

Out of all the books so far this one is my least favorite. Most of the book just seemed like a recap rather than a new story. Just seemed to me like a filler book. Looking forward to the next one though, still a fan of the series!

Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

I didn't realize how Raunchy Kevin Smith was, but that's probably just my ignorance. This was a fun listen while I was at work. I love when he would deviate from the book to throw in little side tidbits. This book has accents, infliction, imagery (good and bad). I recommend.

Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: she's gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and sexy beyond his wildest dreams. Joe needs to have her, and he'll stop at nothing to do so. As he begins to insinuate himself into her life - her friendships, her email, her phone - she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom-made for her. So when her boyfriend, Benji, mysteriously disappears, Beck and Joe fall into a tumultuous affair. But there's more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade.

The first paragraph had me holding my breath and seeing what happens next. How many of us have gone out with a seemingly normal perfect person. But we don’t know their inner monologue. Soooo creepy and the narrators girl voices crack me up instead of annoy me like some narrators. Awesome book!

Pretty good book but not as edge on your seat as YOU. I didn’t like he girl voices done this time and one thing really got me...at the beginning he says Amy’s eyes were blue, but at the end of YOU they were chestnut. Hmmmm. Joe seems less stalker and more serial killer in this one which is just weird. Good listen though.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

This book is seriously awesome. Wil Wheaton is a great narrator and I would love to hear him narrate more. He doesn’t do accents or an awful girl voice that most people do, which makes me stay in the story more (men please stop doing a girl voice while narrating), and his sound effects are pretty rad. So many nerdy pop culture references in this book. I recommend if you’re a geek at heart.

This was a good book to listen to at work. Towards the last 2 hours though I was annoyed with everyone and just wanted it to end. Everyone is a hot mess. The ending was a little confusing to me but probably because I was only half listening at that point. Not a horrible story if looking for a Listen while doing other things.

It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal. Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.
