Powerful entertainment from the crime fiction superstar who combines riveting authenticity with witty, elegant prose. Best selling author Kathy Reichs "keeps the twists coming, and by the novel's climax, she has skillfully interwoven her many subplots and red herrings into a satisfying puddle of sex, sleaze, greed and gore," says Publishers Weekly.

Always a good read

Anything by Reichs is a great read, but this latest in her Temperance Brennan series is even more enjoyable in the way she brings her characters to life. Reichs tells not only a great story, but forces us to take a look at the seemier side of politics and the fascinating world of forensics while involving her readers in the life of the main character, Brennen. I am waiting impatiently for the next books to show up here in Audible!

In 1974, a revolutionary group calling itself the Dread Scott Brigade held up the old Shawmut Bank in Boston's Audubon Circle. Money was stolen. And a woman named Emily Gordon, a visitor in town cashing traveler's checks, was shot and killed. No one saw who shot her. Despite security camera photos and a letter from the group claiming responsibility, the perpetrators have remained at large for nearly three decades. Now it's up to Spenser to solve her murder.

Parker's Spenser is the best

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-24-03

Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels are best read in chronological order, and this is the latest in the series. The character of Spenser has grown amazingly in the tellings and has become not only a hard-boiled dectective, but the kind of man you want as your best friend. Parker is also to be commended on his fine and subtle sense of sarcasm in the use of dialogue. If ever there was a series that is suited to the audio format the Spenser books are it! There is a wit and charm going on that may not come off in hardcopy if you haven't first heard these books done well; and they are narrated VERY well by Joe Mantegna!

For more than 30 years, Pern has conjured visions of brave men and women mounted upon the backs of dragons. As anyone knows who has been touched by the storytelling magic of Anne McCaffrey, to hear of the exotic world of Pern is to inhabit it - and to experience its extraordinary dragons is to soar aloft with them and share their dazzling adventures. A Gift of Dragons brings together three beloved stories and a thrilling new tale of Pern, published here for the first time, in a single volume.

Another wonderful Pern Book

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Like her other books in the "Dragonriders of Pern" series this is another great McCaffery offering. All three stories are engaging and, like so many of her books, deliver characters you can love and identify with. McCaffery's heroes/heroines are going through the coming-of-age problems we all have faced (though most of us don't have dragons to help us through...) and need to learn to make adult decisions while barely out of childhood in a place where life and death situations call for courage, strength, and taking chances. If you love fantasy, the Dragonriders of Pern series is one of the best!
