His frantic warnings about September 11th are ignored but put him in the government cross-hairs where he learns what being labeled an 'enemy combatant' really means...

It's 1949. World War II is over, but it has a way of haunting people for years to come.

Gordon Sandalwood suspects his wife Edith is hiding something from him, and he asks Denver private investigator Dewey Webb to find out what. Dewey, toughened by his own war experiences, reluctantly takes the case, certain it will lead to nothing. But when he sees Edith rendezvous with a mysterious man, Dewey realizes his assumptions might be wrong. As he digs deeper to identify the stranger, he turns up secrets that reach back into the war, and as he unravels a web of deceit, he discovers who has the most to gain, and the most to lose.

A hard-boiled, historical mystery that's great for fans who love a traditional detective crime story with a noir flavor, but without a lot of sex or swearing.

Review - Obsession by Jonathan Kellerman

Tanya Bigelow was a solemn little girl when Dr. Alex Delaware successfully treated her obsessive-compulsive symptoms.

Now, at nineteen, Patty Bigelow, Tanya’s aunt and adoptive mother, has made a deathbed confession of murder and urged the young woman to seek Delaware’s help. Armed with only the vaguest details, Delaware follows a trail twisting from L.A.’s sleaziest low-rent districts to its overblown mansions, retracing Patty and Tanya’s nomadic and increasingly puzzling life.

Then a very real murder tears open a terrifying tunnel into the past, where secrets–and bodies–are buried. Dramatic, action-packed, and filled with the psychological detail that only Jonathan Kellerman can provide, Obsession is a whodunit, a whydunit–and something unique: a did-it-even-happen? This is Kellerman at his heart-racing best.

Review: The story begins 19 years in the past with the introduction to Tanya Bigelow's Mother and her Aunt. Tanya's mother tries but ultimately gives up mothering and leaves Tanya with Patty. Patty's dark childhood pushes Patty to make difficult choices for Tanya benefit and the mystery begins.

Tanya has suffered from OCD since childhood and a confession by Patty pushes Tanya to learn what her adopted mother's encrypted words mean. She seeks out her old doctor to help her cope and to help solve this mystery.

Dr. Delaware and Lt. Milo Sturgis to the rescue. Going forward it's a police procedural story. There are some really strange and disgusting characters our heroes come across. When you turn over rocks, you will eventually find snakes and scorpions. It's not a fast paced novel, it's a flower slowly opening. After all is said and done the show down at high noon breaks the doldrums. Unfortunately, the action is passively described afterward.
John Rubinstein reads and does a good job giving life to each character. I enjoyed his reading. The story was very much like an episode of Law and Order. I like that TV show so if you do too, you'll like this book too.

Consequential Damages by Joseph Hayes

Free for a Limited Time,
Click Now on the Cover Photo.

Rick Black and Jake McShane are former law school classmates with very different approaches to life and the law. Rick is a brilliant, ultracompetitive trial lawyer who believes winning is everything. He openly mocks the legal system, claiming that a lawyer who is a great storyteller can fool a jury every time. He is determined to exploit that weakness in our system, regardless of the havoc that wreaks on innocent lives. When an upstanding pillar of the community is victimized by Rick’s unscrupulous tactics, Jake is determined to bring his former classmate to justice—if he can do so without sacrificing his own integrity. Their approaches, skills and convictions are put to the test when they clash as opposing counsel in a high-stakes class action lawsuit. Dirty tricks, intimidation, intrigue—even homicide—become part of the backdrop as the litigation unfolds. Consequential Damages is a compelling legal drama full of twists, turns and suspense. And, it will make you think!

Review - The Vendetta Defense by Lisa Scottoline

In The Vendetta Defense, Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of Moment of Truth and Mistaken Identity, tells a wonderfully rich story of past sins, love and justice. Lawyer Judy Carrier takes the case of an elderly pigeon racer, Tony Lucia, who has been arrested for the murder of his lifelong enemy Angelo Coluzzi. "Pigeon Tony," as he's known, confesses to Judy that he killed Coluzzi because of a vendetta begun more than fifty years ago. Her client's guilt, however, is only the beginning of Judy's problems. The Coluzzi family wants revenge, and they are determined to finish off Pigeon Tony and Judy before the case can go to trial.

Review: Pigeon Tony is the most interesting character in this story.  His back story about his life in Italy and how he met his wife and their love story is really cute and really touching. That alone is worth listening to this story.

There is also a murder trial thrown in there too. The trial itself was a slam dunk of a trial for me to be questioning whether Pigeon Tony would be acquitted or not. Spoiler alert! He's beats the wrap. Shocking! It was a good procedural to follow but we all know how this was going to end. What you don't know is if Judy will survive this case unscathed. 

Kate Burton does a really good job carrying off so many men's voices and representing the broken English. Scottoline conveys the immigrants with out stereotyping them. It was refreshing. It was well written and well read. I enjoyed it.

Review - Digital Fortress by Dan Brown

Digital Fortress transports the reader deep within the most powerful intelligence organization on earth–the National Security Agency (NSA)–an ultra-secret, multi-billion dollar agency which (until now) less than three percent of Americans knew existed.

When the NSA’s most classified technological wonder–an invincible code-breaking machine–encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls in its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant and beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power.

The NSA is being held hostage… not by guns or bombs, but by a code so ingeniously complex that if released it will cripple U.S. intelligence.

Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Susan Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides she finds herself fighting not only for her country, but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves.

With a startling twist that leaves the agency scrambling to avert the biggest intelligence disaster in U.S. history, Digital Fortress never lets up. From the underground hallways of power, to the skyscrapers of Tokyo, to the towering cathedrals of Spain, a desperate race unfolds.

It is a battle for survival — a crucial bid to destroy a creation of inconceivable genius… an impregnable code-writing formula that threatens to obliterate the balance of power. Forever.

Review: I've seen the movies but this is my introduction to Dan Brown's written work. There are some truly inventive plot points in this story that made me appreciate Mr. Brown's craft. It is a fun and fast paced adventure. Jumping from story arch to arch back and forth at the most crucial moments in each characters story. Brown keeps it lively and exciting.

I was disappointed with the riddle at the end of the book. With a nations best cryptographer coming up blank and me screaming at my CD player, the answer, it was frustrating. It was too easy for me to solve but it could be I'm a super genius. Don't feel bad if you don't get it right a way.

The reader, Bruce Sabath did a wonderful job.  Put him on your to-listen-to list. He really does each character justice, developing their individuality.

Great story and great reader. Check this one out.

In the 90’s, sex was dangerous, music was life, and love was something no one had ever felt like we did.

We met in college, completely free for the first time in our lives and determined to enjoy every minute of it. For four years, we gossiped and flirted, partied and road-tripped. We were inseparable.

Each of us has our own story of falling in or out of love. Of finding out who we are. Of growing up.

We thought we knew everything. We knew nothing.

We Were Here is where the Modern Love Stories begins, in a standalone that perfectly captures the humor, angst, and sheer chaos of college.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he spent most of his life. Among his most celebrated tales is "The Call of Cthulhu", canonical to the Cthulhu Mythos. Never able to support himself from earnings as author and editor, Lovecraft saw commercial success increasingly elude him in this latter period, partly because he lacked the confidence and drive to promote himself. He subsisted in progressively straitened circumstances in his last years; an inheritance was completely spent by the time he died at the age of 46.

Two fishermen became ill after a day on Black Dog Lake. The mysterious virus that had an almost supernatural way of evolving began to spread. People got sick. People got violent. And then they died.

The infected were considered the lucky ones. The cloudy film covering their eyes blinded them from the death of mankind. The survivors witnessed everything—the true value of life and the evil that lurked deep in the human soul. Each day the world darkened.

On the bright side, it would all be over in five days.

“Death Ship” is another suspense-filled thriller in the 45-year-long journey of the Danforth family. This fifth book in the Danforth Saga, which includes “Evil Deeds,” “Terror Cell,” “The Nostradamus Secret,” and “The Lone Wolf Agenda,” introduces Robbie Danforth, the 15-year-old son of Michael and Miriana Danforth, and the grandson of Bob and Liz Danforth.
A leisurely cruise in the Ionian Sea turns into a nightmare event when terrorists hijack a yacht with Bob, Liz, Miriana, and Robbie aboard. Although the boat’s crew, with Bob and Robbie’s help, eliminate the hijackers, there is evidence that something more significant may be in the works.
The CIA and the U.S. military must identify what that might be and who is behind the threat, and must operate within a politically-corrupt environment in Washington, D.C. At the same time, they must disrupt the terrorist’s financing mechanism, which involves trading in securities that are highly sensitive to terrorist events.
Michael Danforth and a team of DELTA operatives are deployed from Afghanistan to Greece to assist in identifying and thwarting the threat.
“Death Ship” is another roller coaster ride of action and suspense, where good and evil battle for supremacy and everyday heroes combat evil antagonists.

Wolves of the Northern Rift by Jon Messenger @JonMessenger

In a world of science, magic is an abomination.

Magic is an abomination. It spread from the Rift, a great chasm hundreds of miles long that nearly split the southern continent in two. The Rift was a portal, a gateway between their world of science and the mythological world of magic.

On the northern continent of Ocker, King Godwin declared that no magical monstrosity would be allowed within their borders. The Royal Inquisitors were formed to investigate reports of mystical occurrences and, should they be found, to destroy them.

Inquisitor Simon Whitlock knows his responsibilities all too well. Along with the apothecary, Luthor Strong, they’ve spent two years inquiring into such reports of magical abominations, though they’ve discovered far more charlatans than true magical creatures. When assigned to investigate Haversham and its reports of werewolves, Simon remains unconvinced that the rumors are true. What he discovers in the frozen little hamlet is that the werewolves are far more real than he believed; yet they’re hardly the most dangerous monster in the city.

Review: The Awakening (The Elders Trilogy Book 1) by TL Travis @tltravis1

Synopsis: In The Awakening, book 1 of The Elders Trilogy, Jessica Cartright has come of age. On top of being new to adulthood and all it encompasses; her nightly dreams are haunted by a faceless man guiding her deeper into the darkness. Fight or flight mode ensues, but she’s trapped. When she’s finally reunited with her first love, her dreams start becoming a reality. Is this a coincidence or are they somehow linked? When these two worlds collide, she fears for her life but finds there’s nowhere left to run.

 Review: I was genuinely interested in the second half of this story. It's an interesting story arc. The second half is really where the action is. It then runs out of gas by the ending. The ending of Book 1 falls into a easy methodical tying of loose ends. The latter half is still well written. I feel it could have been even better. If we learned anything from Game of Thrones, the people closest to you are last people you should trust.

My biggest hurtle was Travis' decision to trust a supporting character that betrays a main character. No matter what promises are made or how the character is written to redeem themselves. I, the reader, will not forgive as easily as literary characters.

Finally, I was surprised coming from an author known for erotica, that this story is as tame as it was, not that the author shies away from descriptions or sex acts. What Travis does do is rush through the sex acts and straight to the after glow. I would classify this story as mature romance. This is novella is low on the arousal meter but high on the story line meter. A good story for a quick read.
