It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Then the shooters arrived. The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But for those who lived through it, the effects would last forever. But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait - and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.

After seeing, hearing about and reading about all the mass shooting, I felt I could not handle another 15 hrs of pro and con additional gun control, angry marches, etc. Wow was I so surprised and almost hooked from the beginning. This is one of Nora best books in recent times. I used to be a big fan, but since she has written so many that dealt with supernatural stuff, I was over and out.

When looking for something new to listen to, I saw this book and since I could find no other to interest me and in a rush to leave, I purchased it. You will love this book if you are a fan of some of her earlier book from 2011. Excellent Narrator!

A city of antebellum architecture, picturesque parks, and cobblestone streets, Savannah moves at a graceful pace. But for Harper McClain, the timeless beauty and culture that distinguishes her home’s Southern heritage vanishes during the dark and dangerous nights. She wouldn’t have it any other way. Not even finding her mother brutally murdered in their home when she was 12 has made her love Savannah any less.

This book gave me so much perspective as a 1st generation American from immigrant parents from Colombia. Love it. Thank goodness our families were not persecuted. I laughed because I hated speaking in Spanish as we were required to do. I cried listening to how cruel daughters can be as a daughter and now as a mother of adult children. Narrator was so spot on.

In this third novel of the Cree Black mystery series, a friend and homicide inspector asks Cree to help investigate a human skeleton recently unearthed in the foundation of a fine Victorian home, apparently the bones of a victim of the 1906 earthquake. The bones have intrigued the forensic anthropology team at UC Berkeley with their peculiar anatomical deformities. They call the skeleton "Wolfman". Who was the Wolfman?

Daniel Hecht has created a plausible, heart-stopping ghost thriller. Relying on the science of parapsychology to spine-tingling effect, he brings to life a remarkably compelling character in Cree Black, as well as the ghosts she confronts.

You definitely need to pay attention to keep up with the three story lines. By chapter 8...I was sorta lost so started at the beginning and listening only when I was able to concentrate....like doing dishes, making Beds, blow drying my hair or at work editing photos. I loved the narrator.

A young woman is found strangled in the stairwell of a college library, only her sneakers missing. With no physical evidence, no signs of sexual assault, and no witnesses, all the police have to go on are the three men who were in the library with her: her boyfriend and two campus security guards...all of whom have secrets, none of whom can be proven guilty. Five years later, ex-FBI profiler Pierce Quincy and his wife, former police officer Rainie Conner, agree to consult on the still-unsolved case.
