A young woman is found brutally murdered, and the main suspect is the victim's fiancé, a hideously scarred Iraq War vet known as the Burned Man. But railroad police Special Agent Sydney Rose Parnell, brought in by the Denver Major Crimes unit to help investigate, can't shake the feeling that larger forces are behind this apparent crime of passion. In the depths of an icy winter, Parnell and her K9 partner, Clyde - both haunted by their time in Iraq - descend into the world of a savage gang of rail riders.

Will the last humans on Earth please turn out the lights? James Patterson's ZOO was just the beginning. The planet is still under violent siege by ferocious animals. Humans are their desperate prey. Except some humans are evolving, mutating into a savage species that could save civilization-or end it.

I couldn't wait for Zoo2 to be On Audiobooks. My entire life I've
Been a with a book in my purse, car & bedside table. Even as a
Small child, I found books took me away to new places or real places
That were before my time. At age 22 I found myself divorced with 2
Little boys, ages 5 & 2 months...I hadn't worked after marriage, so looked for a career where I would make enough to by us a home. I found Nursing,& after finishing school saved & bought us a home. Of
Course books being my escape at night when my boys were tucked into
Bed. My boys also picked up my habit of reading for pleasure before
Bed time. After 20+ yrs.of University Nursing,I was injured resulting in
In too many surgeries,& that's when I found Audiobooks & James
Patterson... Zoo2 was so exciting, surprise after surprise! The ending
Was perfect! Can't wait for Zoo3...what a Masterful Story Teller. Thank You Mr. Patterson for all your wonderful series, Sincerely, Ruth

Five days ago a rash of bizarre murders swept the country. Senseless. Brutal. Seemingly unconnected. A cop walked into a nursing home and unloaded his weapons on elderly and staff alike. A mass of school shootings. Prison riots of unprecedented brutality. Mind-boggling acts of violence in every state. Four Days Ago the murders increased ten-fold. Three days ago the President addressed the nation and begged for calm and peace. Two days ago the killers began to mobilize. Yesterday all the power went out. Tonight....

I usually listen to an audio book seven nights a week, due to too many
Back surgeries after being a nurse for 20+yrs. Sleep is difficult for me
I awake @ least 10 times a night, so I listen to many books to re-focus
My mind to good stories instead of the constant pain! I have all of Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club, Harry Bosch, Karin Slaughter, Tom Clancy
& too many other mystery/suspense books to list. This was the first Blake Crouch book,& it was so fast paced, excellent story, read by Phil
Gigante who took you along on this families journey.A wonderful experience so dynamic I couldn't focus on anything but the read!

With a beautiful baby daughter and a devoted husband, Detective Lindsay Boxer can safely say that her life has never been better. In fact (for a change), things seem to be going well for all the members of the Women's Murder Club as they gather to celebrate San Francisco Medical Examiner Claire Washburn's birthday. But the party is cut short when Lindsay is called to a gruesome crime scene, where a woman has been murdered in broad daylight.

The 14th DeadlySin took forever to wait for. The 13th Women's Murder
Club was much lighter although Lindsey was stuck in a house during a
Storm, all alone & in Labor. I preordered the 14th on February 28th,&
couldn't wait for midnight May 4/5 to finally download it.WOW was it so
Dramatic & extremely long! So much emotional up & down,& falling asleep to awaken & go back to the chapter I'd missed.Finally finished with a emotional high, but then I listened to the excerpt for the next one... I'm not sure if I can get through it!

Will Trent, a dedicated agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for 15 years, knows that there’s definitely such a thing as a cop’s intuition - which is why he should have listened to his own. While in a restroom at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Will overhears a girl’s pleading, plaintive voice: "Please, I wanna go home." Something isn’t right here, thinks Will. He feels it in his gut. But he waits too long to act, and now the girl and the anxious, angry man she’s with have disappeared into the crowds at the busiest passenger airport in the world.
