Charlie Deavon is a British author who meets a fan (the sexually troublesome Amelia Heart) in a pub. The following morning she is found dead. The main suspect in the case is Simon, Charlie's agent. Having avoided the police, Charlie, Simon, and the local bartender try to solve the case together. The three men, what with the stress of it all, turn to a new drug called Merlin, which allows them to control and share hallucinations. From then on, they trip and hallucinate their way through to the story's conclusion.

The book is highly entertaining. The characters are well written and the plot is superb. The story has everything a person could want in a book...romance, vampires, and adventure. There is grief, love and justice to add to the story. I couldn't stop listening to it. Anyone would love this book who loves the genre.

The narrator did an excellent job of narrating the story. She narrated the characters perfectly.

The Marinski Affair began as a dull, mundane case involving a missing husband. Okay, so he was a rich missing husband, but he was nonetheless, still only a missing husband. The case soon developed into one involving robbery, kidnapping, blackmail, and murder. But was there really a kidnapping? All is not as it seems. Tom Kendall, private detective, had the task of solving the mystery. He was usually pretty good at solving puzzles, but this one was different, somehow. It wasn’t that he didn’t have any of the pieces. It was just that none of the pieces seemed to fit together.

Jack Cooper is an unhappy man - mind, body, and spirit. In the blink of an eye, he has lost his longstanding job to the economy, his mother to illness, and his wife to her secret lover. Beaten, broken, and crippled by tragedy, he withdraws into total isolation, narrowing his life down to the simplest of routines in order to block out the pain. His day begins with a strenuous workout at the Bethesda Health Club, his personal oasis where his mind and body can be free, and ends in his tiny apartment, where he escapes from reality with his books until he can lose himself in sleep.

A good mystery involving a man...Jack Cooper... who is lost due to the loss of his mother, his job and his wife. His mother passed away. His wife ran off with her lover. He is a broken down man that withdraws form the world. He is very predictable. He goes to the health club and returns to his apartment when he reads until he falls asleep. While at the health club he meets
Mike Parrish. Mike was stolen from the hospital he was born. Jack and Mike develop a friendship. Then Mike disappears suddenly. Jack searches for Mike and all roads leads him back to the Health Club. A very good thriller. Keeps you wondering who done it. If you love mysteries then this is the book for you.

Jonathan is back at it. He and his friends are hunting a man through time. If you like time travel books this series is for you.It also has action, violence, demons, magic, ghosts, and humor. It also has great characters. Everything a person could want in a book. The book do follow an arc so it would be best to start from the beginning...book 1.

If you believe in psychics and love a mystery this is the book for you. Mira is a psychic that had a vision of her husband being murdered. And now it's happened again. A man has been murdered and of course the police are skeptics except for Wayne Sheppard. There have been Tarot cards left at the scene of the crime. This is the start of it all. The characters need time to develop so at times is seems the story gets a little slow but well worth the read/listen.

The narrator did an very good job with the characters and the story.

Hal Harris a a cold detective as stated in the title. He is very good at his job. Perhaps too good. People are taking notice of the cases he is working on. He come back to the office only to find that his office had been ransacked, files taken, and his secretary had been attacked. He had to find out who did this. Enjoyed the book greatly. The narration is very good. Brought he characters to life.

The beautiful and alluring Tammy Rankin and her brother Andy were positively grief-stricken when their well-to-do father died of a fatal heart attack. In fact, their grief was intensified when they realized that their young stepmother stood to inherit his vast fortune; that is, unless they could somehow suggest foul play and pin a murder rap on the woman. They obviously needed to enlist the services of someone who was totally devoid of any amount of scruples whatsoever.

This is the first book I have read/listened to from the author. I found it fun and inviting. Brett is a man who stays inebriated and will do just about anything. He has no scruples. He is hired by the Rankin kid after their father dies. They want the inheritance and decide to frame their stepmother. This is where Brett comes into the scene. He will do what it takes as well as trying to seduce Tammy Rankin.

The narrator, Travis Henry Carter, did a very good job. He brought the characters to life. Really enjoyed listening ti him.
