An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

I read the very first Dragonlance Trilogy when I was in junior high in the 80s and was drawn into the fabulous universe of Ms Weis and Ms Hickman forever after the first chapter! Of course my favorite character was Raistlin. I remember being excited when the Brothers Majere's first very own Trilogy came out (Time of Twins etc) and I thought it was as good as the original. I was so excited to see The Soulforge come out and recently became aware of this book's existence. Brothers in Arms is a fine entry in the saga of Raistlin and Caramon (and includes the fabulously independent and sexy big sister Kitiara too!). I wasn't quite as drawn in as in previous books, perhaps because it was the combo of Hickman and Weis that was so special but this book is still a very good story and stays true to the various books before... which is important given the various time traveling and possession that Raistlin undergoes in books set in the future (this is a prequel). I did read it as an audio book so my only downside was not liking Kitiara's voice. I had simply envisioned her as a smoky-voiced and sultry woman who always get what she wants and this is not how this (male) narrator read her part. I also thought he went a little overboard on Caramon being a dolt. But regardless those are subjective concerns... it was an overall enjoyable tale and I highly recommend it as a book in general- and a must-read for Dragonlance fans (come on, you know you'd love to read a Dragonlance story again!). Yes I'm talking to your thirty/ forty/ fifty year old a**! Enjoy!

This is a timeless classic mystery not to be missed! The audio version was incredibly well done and the many voices were expertly and consistently narrated. Such an enjoyable experience...a wonderful way to experience a Christie novel.

America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

I listened to the Audible version of The Road by Cormac McCarthy and am very glad I did so. To date this was the best audible experience I've had. In a work full of love and fear and poetry and apocalyptic imagery and scenery, this already perfect book was nonetheless somehow amplified by the narrator's obvious respect for the author's love of language, and his commitment to representing the father and the son faithfully and rendering their conversations truthfully and, at times, heart-rendingly. Not for a moment did this seem to be a staged or directed performance but rather a real-time capture of the emotionally charged events relayed in the original story. A truly unforgettable tale, at times elegantly beautiful and at other times starkly terrifying...a true post-apocalyptic epic that doesn't need to explain why, and only seeks to relay 'what happens after" to an Everyman and his beloved son. I have certainly found a top ten book and another favored author!
