  • Solving Killer Cases from My Life Fighting Crime

Joe Kenda investigated 387 murder cases during his 23 years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and solved almost all of them. And he is ready to detail the cases that are too gruesome to air on television, cases that still haunt him, and the few cases where the killer got away. These cases are horrifyingly real, and the detail is so mesmerizing you won't be able to turn it off.

I first was exposed to Lt. Kenda on the Homicide Hunter series. His somewhat laconic style and wry sarcasm captured my attention and left me wanting more. His record as a homicide cop is seriously impressive and he teaches many great techniques for handling bad guys, particularly in interview. Overall, this was a very enjoyable listen and a keeper.

This performer brings out all the nuances of this magnificent tale of love and vengeance. I had initially tried another, but the other reader had a pedantic style that did not do justice to the story. I am so pleased with this one!

I love to re-read the gentle stories of France's Hodgson Burnett and Louisa Mae Alcott. They address problems of the day, but the characters are true and strong in their faith and the language is clean.

The mysterious reappearance of magery throughout the land has been met with suspicion, fear, and violence. In the kingdom of Lyonya, Kieri, the half-elven, half-human king, struggles to balance the competing demands of his heritage while fighting a deadly threat to his rule: evil elves linked in some way to the rebirth of magic. Meanwhile, in the neighboring kingdom of Tsaia, a set of ancient artifacts recovered by the former mercenary Dorrin Verrakai may hold the answer to the riddle of magery’s return.

So glad to be back with Susan Erickson as reader for this series conclusion. I have read and re-read these books ever since the original "Sheepfarmer's Daughter" was released so many years ago. One can still hope that perhaps Dorrin's adventures would be continued, but, if not, imagination can still follow the black horse's tail.

The unthinkable has occurred in the kingdom of Lyonya. The queen of the Elves - known as the Lady - is dead, murdered by former elves twisted by dark powers. Now the Lady’s half-elven grandson must heal the mistrust between elf and human before their enemies strike again. Yet as he struggles to make ready for an attack, an even greater threat looms across the Eight Kingdoms.Throughout the north, magic is reappearing after centuries of absence, emerging without warning in family after family - rich and poor alike.

So sad

With the wonderful performers like Jennifer van Duke and Susan Erickson previously used in this series, the choice of Angela Dawe for this volume puzzles me. Her constant mispronounciation of numerous names and her jarring Midwest accent with it's touch of a nasal whine really decreased my enjoyment. Such a relief to continue into "Crown of Renewal" with the superb performance of Me. Erickson. Ms. Dawe may excellent at a more modern tale, but for this, she was an unfortunate choice.

Big fan of the In Death series, and Susan Erickson does a wonderful job as reader! This story pits Dallas and crew against a psychopath who has fixated on her and proclaims friendship by killing those who've disrespected Eve in the past. Some very intense moments for some old acquaintances.
