A body has been found on the overlook near Mulholland Drive. The victim, identified as Dr. Stanley Kent, has two bullet holes in the back of his head, from what looks like an execution-style shooting. LAPD detective Harry Bosch is called out to investigate. As soon as Bosch begins retracing Dr. Kent's steps, contradictions emerge. While Kent doesn't seem to have had ties to organized crime, he did have access to dangerous radioactive substances from just about every hospital in Los Angeles County.

Certainly not his best book. I was really eager when I heard this was due for release but left disappointed after only 6hours of listening. Was more like a short story..... still entertaining enough to give it 3 stars

Absoutely touching...

This is one of the most touching books I have read in a while. As so many others have written, I too, did not want this one to end. I felt the love, the pain and all the possible emotions throughout this book and although I didn't shed a tear, I was so choked up at times that I really struggled to keep running (I listen to my books whilst running and let me warn others, its not good to choke up when running!!)
If you have any doubt about whether to purchase this one and you enjoy an emotional story then dont wait a moment longer.
The reader of this book does a fantastic job also and has a very listenable voice.
Thoroughly enjoyed and will no doubt listen to this one again in the future.

It was the publicity stunt from hell as far as Kirsten Rumm was concerned. She may have been writing the book about her late husband, aeronautical daredevil Demon Rumm, but she didn't see the need to play host to the arrogant bad-boy actor starring in the film version's title role. Still, for the good of the project, Kirsten agreed to share her beachfront home with the impossibly sexy screen idol.

Good, catchy love story which you'll want to keep listening to. Has all the ups and downs and a typical ending but still a very entertaining read in general. Definately recommended for lovers of romance novels. Worth a book credit.

They were women whose lives began in slavery, who weathered the Civil War, and who grappled with the contradictions of emancipation through the turbulent early years of the 20th century. Through it all, they fought to unite their family and forge success on their own terms.

Battle between white and colour....

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-22-05

I was alittle hesitant about this book. But knowing it was on Oprahs list I thought I'd give it a try. Absolutely believable. A fascinating listen about a family of 'coloured' people and their struggle to become 'normal and accepted'in the late 1800's/1900's. Whilst listening you feel yourself becoming a part of this family and hoping that they would win the battle between white and coloured people. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Started alittle slow I thought but definately glad I continued, infact found myself not wanting to 'put it down'!!

In April 1994, the central African nation of Rwanda exploded into 100 days of violence, killing 800,000 people. Most turned their backs to the bloodshed. Here is the story of those who stayed.

Normally I find it hard to stay 'interested' in this type of book ... however this one I couldn't turn off. Perfect length for me (51 minutes)and still managed to include enough detail to really paint the picture.
