In her race against the clock, Sabre must determine whether contemporary horrors are being buried in the shadow of dark traditions - or if it's something else at work.

I liked this story but I liked the reader from the second book better. The story starts slow and gets a little repetitive at times but it it worth it for the climax. It’s a heart stopper.

I really got into this story. First of all I live in San Diego and I know where everything Teresa Burrell describes. It's like I'm racing down the I8 right along Saber. These books are as good as J.D Robb and the audiobook is just as exciting. Unfortunately, I knew who the murderer was after the discussion of their whereabouts on the night of the murder, and I was seriously hoping I was wrong. Getting into Betty's and John history really kept me involved and the action with JD is stunning. Although, I'm worried for that man, the concussions that man takes!

I loved the story about Charlotte and Harry both of them had a lot of growing to do. They manage that by traveling to America then west on the wagon train. The one thing that disappointed me was the narrator,. The first time he used Charlotte’s voice, I bike out in laughter. It grew on me as the story continued, I heard better women’s voices done by male narrators. When I wasn’t distracted by the voice I was really into the story.

This is a story about a woman finding herself. Still plagued about her boyfriend she lost in the war. She finds she is having a hard time dealing with her impending marriage to Richard. I love Marjorie and even though she makes some huge mistakes, she finds her way and what her heart wants. There are definitely some strange twists, but they’ll take on a road to delightful discovery.

The perfomance of the story is what kept me in the game. The fact that a cop would give herself away, well I know it's human, but its against my sense of right and wrong. This story is emotionally driven and that's what makes the audio version very good.

The story was well written to a point, but the ending did not finish with acceptability of society. The only good point is the fourth son doesn't have all the social rules applied to him for marriage that is required for the first born. Florence is a spitfire and knows what she wants, that she wants George to want her to stay. She expects George to act like an Italian and George expects her to understand his English ways. Why do people forget that love is a two way communication? The performance of the audio version is wonderful.
