Not at all what I expected, I kept waiting for the story to make sense and connect to the rest of the series....then the book was over...and I was sitting there like....WHAT THAT'S IT! Disappointing and a a waste of a credit!

Skip book 5 and go to book 6.

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

I have over 100 titles in my library from several different genres, and I can tell you this is the worst book I have ever TRIED to listen to. I couldn't even finish the first 10 chapters. The narrators were terrible and the storyline all over the place. Trust me save you credit or wait until audible puts this title on sale.

Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

Wanting More...

Reviewed: 01-20-07

This is my first book by the author and it literally left me wanting more. I have heard and read the story of Sarah and Abraham many times, however rendition left me with a deeper understanding of what it must have been like for Sarah...even if it was fictious. Because I find myself barron as well I complete understood how it can consume someones every thought and how even though you have faith...you may still have doubt but in the very depht of your heart still hope for the impossible. And inspite of all that still be known by name by GOD himself. Orson's portrayal of Sarah made her human to me and still presented her with the virtue of a Godly woman.

With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

I just finished this book today and it left me missing the characters. Edward made me fear him and love him at the same time. Just enough teeth to make you aware of the possiblity of a threat but not enough to gross you out.

Bravo.....Audible should get more books like this.
