Nick McCarty decides after ten years of black ops assassinations it's time for a change. Against the wishes of his shadow government bosses he has inexplicably managed to become a best-selling author. The novels have made him world famous and provided a cover for his overseas sanctions. But Nick feels something's missing. An employer orders the death of a woman in the witness protection program. Nick sees something in the woman's picture reminding him of someone he knew long ago.

What did you love best about Cold Blooded?

I actually read the book as well. I love this story. It's full of action, suspense and humor.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely. Plot is great and with Nick trying to determine who could be trusted and couldn't be while trying to protect Rachel and her daughter even from the WitSec agents, then the mob, just amazing action and a lot of kills. But, Nick is funny in that he uses a lot of garbage bags, duck tape and bleach.

Have you listened to any of Mike Dennis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First time hearing this guy and he done a great job I think. I'd buy another book with him narrating if I liked the book first.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Cold Blooded Killer

Unsolved Serial Killings by R. J. Parker is a fascinating glimpse into the mindsets of cold-blooded serial killers. Complete with F.B.I. stats, profile classifications, and psychotic windows to peer into, this book is about the most horrific of criminals. There are some great examples of unsolved murders that leave the listener wondering, did the killer, stop killing, die, or go to prison on unrelated charges? A spellbinding new audiobook from an author with investigator in his blood!

What made the experience of listening to Unsolved Serial Killings the most enjoyable?

The author put in so much detail and painted one drastic scenario after another!

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

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

The narrator, who's voice is engaging, often altered her voice tone when capturing the more dramatic scenes to emphasize the importance which holds the listeners attention. Very good narrating

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

This book certainly opened my eyes to the reality that there are a lot of unsolved killings in just the US alone

When we hear about a serial killer, we never consider the sex, we would immediately assume a man...right? but that's not always the case! Females are for the most part, the loving and caring protectors of our species and the ones that are more susceptible to danger. However, they are in fact the most dangerous because they are the least suspected of the Serial Killers. Like their male counterparts, they show no remorse and have no mercy for their victims.

What did you love best about Women Who Kill (Serial Killers)?

Usually when we think of Serial Killers we think of men, not the case in this book

What about David Gilmore’s performance did you like?

Very well spoken

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely

Any additional comments?

Oh how we cherish our mothers and respect their kindness! Well, here is a different story told in "Women Who Kill"! This book made me cringe at the thought that there is a different breed of mothers/women out there who have a disgusting way of life. Not only to their loving children and spouces whom they decieve but to the community as well! Heart breaking stories some had to face in the hands of these monsters! Great book and very interesting knowledge! Its not only men we have to fear but the kind women with the wicked intent next door!

One of the most fascinating law enforcement agencies in the world is the FBI. From the J. Edgar Hoover days to present, the Bureau has investigated the most famous cases, including, mobsters, gangs, bank robbers, and terrorism. They have also received a few black eyes including, Waco Siege, and Ruby Ridge. In Top Cases of The FBI, RJ Parker captured 12 of those cases and prepared case files on these criminals up to and including their sentencing or demise.

Would you consider the audio edition of Top Cases of The FBI (American Criminal History) to be better than the print version?

Top Cases of The FBI by RJ Parker is fraught with details of twelve notorious criminals and event cases in US History. Criminals such as John Gotti, Al Capone, Bonnie & Clyde and events including Jonestown Massacre, Waco and Ruby Ridge to name a few. Great for my True Crime collection. Highly recommend this book.

What about David Gilmore’s performance did you like?

Excellent
