Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

The start of the book kinda felt like it was dragging and I was really disinterested for a good while. Reacher always pulls through though so I kept listening. In true Reacher style he pulled you in and you were along for a wild ride. So many things about this book were pure genius! The twist was just amazing, and the fact that Reacher figures it out like he always does is amazing! Do yourself a favor and read this book!

Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

OH MY GOSH! This book was really good, but I figured out very quickly just what was happening. From then on I was on pins and needles just waiting for the truth to come out. There were a handful of twists that I didn't see coming, but welcomed them. Overall the book was great, I just really wonder what would have happened had the truth come out way sooner than it did.

Reacher is hitching through the heat of West Texas and getting desperate for a ride. The last thing he's worried about is exactly who picks him up.

She's called Carmen. She's a good-looking young woman, she has a beautiful little girl...and she has married into the wrong family. They're called the Greers. They're a bitter and miserly clan, and they've made her life a living hell. Worse, her monster of a husband is soon due out of prison. So she needs protection, and she needs it now.

Lawyers can't help. Cops can't be trusted. So Reacher goes home with her to the lonely ranch where nothing is as it seems, and where evil swirls around them like dust in a storm. Within days, Carmen's husband is dead - and simmering secrets send Echo, Texas, up in flames.

Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Rob Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

Without giving anything away had I known what the main story line was going to be I would not have purchased this book. It started off great! I even thought I'd figured out the path it was going to take. Boy was I wrong! Instead what actually happened next was so STUPID I cannot even believe I finished the book. Great characters, great story...up until the stupidness!

Oh such a sad end to a great series. This book takes you so many places and follows such a wonderful story line. As a HUGE fan of Child 44 and The Secret Speech this book really took you to another world and covered the most ground. Following Leo and his family in the stories that you get here in Agent 6 will tug at your heart strings. The rebellion and loss, the love, the sadness……….it’s all there! It takes such a turn from the first two books but stands strong on its own. I’m sad to see the series end, I’d have loved to follow Leo threw many more books. A great read/listen and as always this narrator is amazing! Highly recommended.

It is 1956. Three years ago, Leo Demidov moved on from his career as a member of the state security force. As an MGB officer, Leo had been responsible for untold numbers of arrests and interrogations. But as a reward for his heroic service in stopping a killer who had terrorized citizens throughout the country, Leo was granted the authority to establish and run a homicide department in Moscow. Now, he strives to see justice done on behalf of murder victims in the Soviet capital.

I absolutely loved Child 44 and was really looking forward to something similar to come after it. That being said this book was again very well written and very interesting, but not quite what I’d expected. It was a little slower and a little harder to get into but once the real story came out it sucked you in just like Child 44. Following Leo and his family into a life that you would never imagine for them, the twist and turns, the love and hate really kept it going. Now time for the final book.

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

At first I was a little leery because the narrators voice sounds a little old to be reading as a 16year old girl. I eventually got used to it and moved on. This book was amazing! There is not a dull moment and it keeps you wanting more. The end leaves you yearning for the next book with its cliffhanger. I’ve already downloaded the next two books and am lost in them as well. Great Book and Great Series! I’ve already recommended them to all my friends!

It is a society that is, officially, a paradise. Superior to the decadent West, Stalin's Soviet Union is a haven for its citizens, providing for all of their needs: education, health care, security. In exchange, all that is required is their hard work, and their loyalty and faith to the Soviet State. But now a murderer is on the loose.

This book will hold your interest from start to finish! Very well written and very well narrated! I was entrapped in the narrators voice and accent. It set the scene wonderfully for the time and place in the book. The book was very easy to get lost in. So many story lines that would come up and leave you a bit confused, only to later be blended with the main story and make perfect sense. This book kept me on the edge of my seat with every moment that passed and I never wanted to turn it off. The story was so well written I often got lost in the book and felt a part of it, it was hard to distinguish story and reality, a very large fete for being a different era. I am looking forward to finishing out the series.
