This story about Melvin coming out of a coma and starting to think about all the horrible things he was going to do to everyone round about him especially his controlling mother showed great promise however because of one of the most annoying narations I have ever heard I had to give up listening after a few chapters what a shame a good story ruined

In this unusually frank book Scott Thorson, Liberace's longtime lover, tells all: the good, the bad, and the ugly truths about the legendary entertainer who went to outrageous extremes to prevent public knowledge of his homosexuality. Liberace's unhappy childhood, dominated by a mother determined to force him into a concert career, serves as the prologue for a story that goes on to detail Liberace's early appearances in honky-tonks, his move to New York to seek fame, and, finally, his first booking in Las Vegas, where he was courted by the Mafia.

If you could sum up Behind the Candelabra in three words, what would they be?

Sad. Shocking eyeopening

Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably Liberace himself though sometimes because of his stage act you forget how talented he was as a pianist it also shows if you have enough money you can cover up anything that you want to

Would you listen to another book narrated by Peter Berkrot?

Not sure

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How to spend your whole life living a lie

Any additional comments?

Scott could have walked away from the situation at any time obviously it suited him not to

Family. They're supposed to watch your back. Not stab you in it. When the enemy is one of your own, the payback is twice as hard. The Butler brothers are the Kings of the East End, and their motto is ‘what goes around, comes around'. In their world, family counts; so when the truth about Vinny's cousin's death comes to light, it rocks the Butlers to the core. One by one, Vinny's friends and family are turning against him.… Then, the unimaginable happens - Vinny's little daughter, Molly, goes missing. She's the one chink of light in all their lives, and the one they'd commit murders to bring back.
