Andrea Heller has been married for seven years, but still likes to pretend she's single. She enjoys sitting on her own in bars, and watching what happens. But there's another couple watching too. They call themselves Saila and Pharaoh, but only after sundown. And it is after sundown that some terrible things are happening in the singles clubs in Cleveland. In six months, three women in their twenties have been brutally murdered. And each step that Homicide Detective Jack Paris takes to find their killer draws him closer....

This is the first Richard Montanaria that I've listened too. I think this is an excellent book if you like detective novels. My only criticism would be that the narrator didn't change his voice enough and sometimes I had to rewind the book to ensure that I kept up with what was going on. But having said that it was an entralling book

Having read all of Mark Billinghams books previously, I tried this and as it was narrated by Mark himself I thought I'd give it a go. The first attempt I thought Oh Dear not quite right and then I realised that as he wrote the book he new the characters and story line so well it allowed you to drift into the story as though you were taking part. Very brilliantly written yet again. Can't wait for the next book to be realeased.

In Atlanta, Georgia, a vicious serial killer is at loose, luring victims with ease, killing them with a combination of precision and twisted brutality. Keye Street is not happy. Formally a rising FBI star, with two university degrees and a brilliant track record in criminal profiling, she's now working for herself as a bail recovery agent.

This is the first book that I have listen to by Amanda Kyle Williams and the narration was brilliantly done accent of Anne Marie Lee felt like you were actually involved - kept me listening and ignoring my fellow commuters.

Five years ago his daughter, Rebecca, went missing on the eve of her 13th birthday. A year later the first card arrived: homemade, with a Polaroid picture stuck to the front – Rebecca, strapped to a chair, gagged and terrified. Every year another card: each one worse than the last. The tabloids call him The Birthday Boy. He’s been snatching girls for 12 years, always in the run-up to their 13th birthday, sending the families his homemade cards showing their daughters being slowly tortured to death.

‘I know you, don’t I?’ Five words - that’s all it takes to plunge Mike Wingate and his family into mortal danger. Mike doesn’t recognise the crippled stranger who approaches him at a party... but the stranger seems to know all about him. What has Mike done? Do they have the wrong man? Overnight, the threats become attacks, and Mike, his wife, and their young daughter learn they aren’t safe anywhere - especially not their own home. He doesn’t know who they are. He doesn’t know what they want.

This is the first book I have listened to by Hurwitz and what a page turner it would have been if I'd been reading the book. Listening to Jeff harding on various other books which gets into character from the beginning.

It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

I have read every "In Death"book by JD Robb (33 books now on the train). This is the first Audio book in the Eve Dallas series that I've listened too and thought that it was brilliant. Looking forward to Celebrity in Death next year. Not long to wait......

In tough times, crime is one of the few things that still pay, but if defence attorney Mickey Haller was expecting an uptick in business during the economic downturn, the reality is a different story. Even people needing legal representation to keep them out of jail have to make cut-backs, it seems.

What an excellent book like all the others. I could listen to Peter Giles voice forever. Another brilliant and additictive listening of Michael Connelly's books in the series - Can't wait until the next Mickey Haller is written.
