5-0 out of 5 stars Good Old Harry
I just finished reading Echo Park and really enjoyed it.I like the way Michael Connelly keeps the action moving and keeps the reader wondering what is going to happen next.I usually have some of the villians identified but in this case I did not see Abel Pratt involved in the plot.I too feel it would have been good to see what happened to those corrupt people.However, I used my imagination which perhaps is what the author intended.

2-0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment!
Having read several of Connelly's books, I expected this one to be a cut above the usual crime thriller genre.I was sorely disappointed.Although the plot is somewhat interesting, the characterizations are weak and there is just too much tough cop talk and unbelievable heroics.The narration is weak, especially the personification of the FBI agent girlfriend, which is absolutely grating.I did finish it, but wish I could get my money back.

5-0 out of 5 stars Harry Bosch remains one of the best cop characters in fiction
Settling in with a new Harry Bosch book by Michael Connelly is like getting together with an old, close friend you haven't seen in a long while.Harry is still with LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit along with his partner, Kiz Ridder. Returning to the police force after a short, unsatisfying retirement, Harry still looks at cases from long ago, cases that he had a hand in, but were never solved.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Lincoln Rhymes yet
Although the plot twists in Deaver books sometimes are a bit of a stretch; they are certainly never dull.
5-0 out of 5 stars This is audio at its best.
A new Lincoln Rhyme novel brings the thriller genre to high tension, especially spiced with Joe Mantegna's readings. He's received Emmy nominations for his TV work and won the Tony Award for his stage work - there should be an award for his smooth voice which perfectly captures the tension brewing from the story of deadly murders in New York City and a renowned criminologist who comes to realize the killer's future plans. This is audio at its best.
2-0 out of 5 stars Overly complicated and not particularly believable
I was disappointed in the latest Lincoln Rhyme mystery. The book had more twists than a Chubby Checker song and in the end they strained credibility.

4-0 out of 5 stars All Mortal Flesh
I have read the entire series of Clare Fergusson/Rus Van Alstyne mysteries and was so looking forward to "All Mortal Flesh" - but this one I did not like.First of all, it was very upsetting finding Linda murdered so brutely.From the other books in the series she is beautiful and likeable and it seemed out of context.Then I was so relieved that she was not dead to only have her dead again.Why? pray tell.Kill her once, not twice.Also, I didn't like the ending.The emotional rollercoaster for Russ was awful, and Clare, why would she join the military again?It didn't make sense.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best yet of this series
So far this is Julia Spencer-Fleming's best book in the Clare Fergusson/Russ Alstyne mystery series. While I've enjoyed the other books in the series, the previous, In the Bleak Midwinter, was IMO the weakest. That's because we spent so much time away from Clare and Russ and became involved with characters I didn't care too much about. Not so the case with All Mortal Flesh. While we move around to other points of view, it's not long before we're back to both Clare or Russ' POV and that's where we want to be. The power of their love and respect for one another, the risks they take to protect that love and their guilt over the consequences are deftly handled in wonderfully drawn moments that often leave me amazed and moved. What's so wonderful about this book is how the external story/plot and internal struggles of the main characters so seamlessly come together. That's no small feat and it's what makes this latest mystery novel the most powerful and meaningful in the series.

5-0 out of 5 stars I was lost, but now I am found.....
...however, I got lost again. Am not going to write a lengthy review as other reviewers have already covered all of the finer aspects of the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Really Pacy Novel
It may be a little known fact, but James Patterson has written more best selling titles in the past five years than Dan Brown, J.K. Rowling, Tom Clancy and John Grisham put together. He is one of a handful of authors whose sales have been growing over the past two years, even though best selling fiction sales in general have been declining.
2-0 out of 5 stars This serie is getting worse each book...
I enjoyed the first 3 books of the Women's Murder Club. Didn't like too much the 4th (of July), but the 5th is just BAD ! What's the plot ? There is no plot ! 2 serial-killer stories try to share the pages of this not-such-a-page-turner, the 1st mystery (Car Girls) get solved mid-way throught the book and I bet plenty of readers won't remember it by the end of this painfull read... By trying to develop 2 stories, Patterson gets our interest for none. The most sad thing of all is that I used to like to Women's Murder Club members, but now they all seem so unreal, remote from anything actually likeable. And it's been the case since one of them died and another one joined the club, in the most stupid, artificial way really. Not much to save this book, it's even badly written. Don't know if Patterson thinks about writting a 6th, but don't count on me next time !

2-0 out of 5 stars Stinko
I give it two stars only because the two mystery's are decent.This is some of the worst writting I have found in a long time of reading.The dialogue is totally unrealistic and the writing is awful.I don't know how much Patterson had to do with this book but he should be ashamed.I ask youhow many women do you know that use a term like "skirt hound" for a man who chases women?I actually listen to this book as an unabridged audio, thinking it would sound better than it read...silly me!It was even worst because I had to hear the actor read the awful dialogue.Even my wife, who is a big Patterson fan, disliked this one. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy it through amazon.co.uk
This book is titled Venetian Reckoning in Europe and can be bought in paperback through Amazon's UK website.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sometimes the underworld is so ugly...
The fourth in a five book series (oh, that Donna Leon would keep writing these....), Death and Judgment brings us back to our dear detective, Guido Brunetti and his family, and his work in Venice.I will steal from a reviewer who suggested that Leon writes three novels in one: about murder, about Venice, and about relationships, because it is true and it is just this that brings us back again and again to see what Brunetti is up against this time.An important lawyer is found dead on the train from Padua to Venice (and of course, Brunetti's supervisor, Patti urges him to consider this a simple robbery "gone bad").At about the same time a large truck slides off an ice-y mountain road in Northern Italy and the dead bodies of a number of young women are discovered in the back (crushed by the load of lumber in the truck).Then when the dead lawyer's accountant is also found murdered, Brunetti slowly begins to find the connections and uncovers a horrible web of international prostitution and a pornographic film industry built by some truly evil but highly influential and powerful Venetian citizens.As Leon always involves us with Guido's family, especially his dear wife (and local English professor) and children, this novel is no different and Guido's precocious daughter actually helps him solve this case, which has a typically complex yet logical conclusion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perceptive characterisations - excellent unfolding of plot
Donna Leon is a quietly perceptive and at times a forgivingly cynical narrator of human foibles and relationships under the stress of daily life, politics, bureaucracy and crime.This novel once again brings Commissario Guido Brunetti's empathetic pragmatism and integrity into conflict with the entrenched egocentricity and greed of Venice's and Italy's ruling classes. This is a piece of literature, not just a wonderfulnovel of crime and detection. Leon manages to make usquestionour assumptions about everything from political apathy and corruption, to what is honour, and how we live out our values. What a gift this woman must be to her students.Highly recommended for a desert island collection, as well as being a great primer for visitors to Venice. Not to mention being a damn good read. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Hated it....
This was the worse book I ever read. As a matter of fact the book was so bad I gave up on it. I didn't care about reading it to the end. Given the fact that the main male character seems to only process criminal information when having sex (some of it blackmail sex) should tell you all you need to know about this book. If you like reading about the exploits of a characters sex life with a secondary tie in to a criminal investivation, then this is the book for you. This book was one huge YAWN!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars 1st Ellroy book
Cherchez la femme, French for seek out the woman.Yes, Ellroy likes females and dedicated this book to his mother (Geneva Hilliker Ellroy, 1915-1958).The intro is a must read.I thought the book would be more about the girl, Elizabeth Short.Most of it is about the two cops, Bucky Bleichert and Lee Blanchard (Fire and Ice). I got into it after about 30 pages and did now want to put it down.Not my usual genre to read but I love movies of this genre and wanted the background for the upcoming movie.I praise him for the authentic vocabulary of the time period (Aug 1942 to Sept. 11, 1949) is when the book takes place.Elizabeth Short died about Jan 16th?Police report on her was 1/17/43.Lots of twists right up till the end.Like I said the vocabulary and old terms were the best: zoot suits, Bop coming into its heyday, Packard and DeSoto autos, rurales, correct use of ersatz and spiel. Nationalities came into play as it was at that time with German innuendos, Jew Boy and all that stuff. Not to offend, just the facts.Worth reading if you want to know what the 1940's were like.I love learning about the 1920's to 1960's. (Born in 1955 myself).Would love to go back to be an adult in the 1940's or 50's.My favorite time period!Enjoy.

1-0 out of 5 stars I just wanted to finish it to move on to my next book
I received this book as a gift. I read in this genre from time to time and usually the pace of the books is riveting. Here I was very restless and not interested in the characters. So many things happened that seemed far-fetched that I couldn't give the author much confidence. In the end I was happy to finish the book to just be done with it and disappointed at the ending. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Wallander investigates another perplexing mystery
Henning Mankell's captivating "The Man Who Smiled", while written about 12 years ago has just been recently been translated into English.Mankell's style has great appeal resulting from an abilty to use the realistic immorality existent in society to fabricate his plots.His protagonist Swedish police inspector Kurt Wallander is a believable character, with a plausible array of human foibles.Years of police work has taken its toll and both his health and emotional state.
4-0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love Kurt!
Henning Mankell has done it again (or actually did it 13 years ago)--he's written an interesting mystery with a much more interesting hero, Inspector Kurt Wallander.I won't give a summary here of the book, because I'm sure the publisher and other reviewers have done that already.The reason these books are fun is the Swedishness of them!
3-0 out of 5 stars One of the weaker of the Wallander mysteries
I am a big fan of Mankell's Wallender mysteries, thus I was excited to see that this had finally made available in English.I was struck before I started reading that the gap between its publication in Swedish and its translation into English was very long, several later books that refer to events in this one were actually translated before this.After reading it, I suspect that the delay was because somewhere along the line, people were aware this book was flawed.

Once again, J.A. Jance has provided an exciting and well-written book!!I couldn't wait 'til the end and was sorry it HAD to end!!!I am also a J.P. Beaumont fan and all I can say to this author is "Please keep up the great work (on both series)."Personally, I cannot wait for the next books to appear for either series--Susan

3-0 out of 5 stars Good book, disappointed in the ending
I always enjoy the Joanna Brady mysteries, fast-paced and interesting while you are reading them but not something you have to put a lot of thought into. This one was no exception, the characters and the crimes being investigated were good but I was really disappointed that the "mystery" behind the case wasn't explained more in the end. I actually wondered if my copy was missing some pages.

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't Get Enough of JA Jance
Jance's twelth book in the Joanna Brady series finds Joanna newly elected, expecting her second child and forced to deal with an unidentified corpse with his fingers cut off and a raped and beaten Animal Control Officer. But Joanna's no slouch and despite the load she's carrying, she flops on her belly to shoot a bad guy. Too bad she can't do that with her meddling in-laws. Faced with an animal cruelty crisis and competing with Maricopa County's sheriff for brilliant ingenuity, Joanna comes up with a solution: Give prisoners pit bulls. Huh? So what if this sounds wacky. It works, and so does this book. JA Jance can't pump these things out fast enough for me. ... Read more

As with all Alex Cross Novels. Well written excellent plot. Kept ones interest throughout the book. A page turning novel.

3-0 out of 5 stars Reading Out of Sequence Makes A Difference!
I enjoyed the story, but perhaps would have liked it more if I had followed the Alex Cross series in order. Instead, I've kind of 'hopped' from one book to another, and have often had to look up info on web sites to remind myself where each story 'fits'.
4-0 out of 5 stars Overall, a compelling read
This I have to admit is my first in the Alex Cross series, although I have read other books by Patterson.

In The Night Gardner, we are introduced to a trio of police officers at the scene of a crime, the third of it's kind...two rookies and one seasoned veteran.Outside of outlining them as determined, seasoned veteran that everyone looks up to (legend), Holiday, cop destined not to be a straight arrow, and Ramone a cop destined to be a straight arrow.The introductory section serves as a brief interlude to introduce the bare facts that the book is based on...the nature of the crimes (pedophilia, dumping bodies in community gardens, and the palindrome thing) and the men who ultimately solve them, sorta.

4-0 out of 5 stars CONNELLY EXAMINES RACE RELATIONS IN LA
Bosch is back. A high-profile, black, civil right attorney is slain and Harry Bosch is given the assignment to find the murderer. To those unfamiliar with Detective Bosch, he is not a "go along to get along" guy. He tells it like he sees it even if it rankles the Chief of Police, the FBI or other police officers. That is much of the fun in reading a Harry Bosch novel. And I use the word "novel" in its literary sense; Mr. Connelly has written a novel in ANGEL'S FLIGHT, not a police procedural, although it is a wonderful example of that as well. ANGEL's FLIGHT is really about race relations in Los Angeles and about police-minority relations in particular. The murder mystery in ANGEL'S FLIGHT is just the hat tree on which to hang the fedora of political and racial insights. This is the sixth in the Bosch series and the best-written so far (I am reading them in the order published); Mr. Connelly keeps growing as a writer. For me, the ending was just a little two pat in terms of poetic as well as legal justice being served to make this a five-star book, but one reads Mr. Connelly to learn about Harry Bosch and see him in action more than anything else. At least I do.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty close to perfect...
Angels Flight was the first Michael Connelly/Harry Bosch book that I read and when I picked it up four years ago, I realized that Connelly was no ordinary mystery writer.It took three more years to finally read the rest of this series, and since finishing them all, I wanted to go back and reread Angels Flight as I didn't remember much of what happened.Not only did I enjoy it just as much the second time around, but it remains one of my very favorite Bosch mysteries.
5-0 out of 5 stars Burt's Great!!!
The Harry Bosch series is not only a mystery, but a thriller, and at times quite humorous. Mr. Connelly really knows how to pull the listener into the story.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Book
I just bought Mary Mary last week, my first book I have read by James Patterson and could hardly put it down.I bought 2 more( Alex Cross series) and read both within a week. Now today I just bought 2 more( Jack and Jill and Cat and Mouse and I am anxious to start them. They are all very scary and very hard to put down. I see Mr Patterson has written alot of books, should keep me busy for awhile!

3-0 out of 5 stars Mary, Mary (paperback version)
Mary, Mary (the paperback version), is interesting in a number of ways.
4-0 out of 5 stars Mary Mary
The book Mary Mary by James Patterson is one of the most thrilling and exciting books I've ever read.James Patterson keeps you hanging on eith this book and with each page you read, it takes an unexpected turn. Mary Mary is a murder mystery book. The killer, codename Mary Smith, is after certain Hollywood female stars.Arnold Griner,of the Los Angeles Times, is being sent emails from Mary Smith after each murder she makes.Why Arnold Griner? Well, there's a reason that will need to be discovered. Agent Alex Cross is our main detective who's taking this whole care under his wing. With every murder made, the more crucial the case becomes, and less time until the next actress is murdered. Agent Cross has a family but is divorced with three children. His ex-wife, Christine, took Alex to court for custody of their yougest son, Alex, also know as "Ali". Having that said, his court case and his Mary Smith case is too much to handle. The LA Times receives email after email and murder after murder courtesy of Mary Smith. And she's not finished yet. She wants for anyone to catch her. Her messege is "come and get me." Every page you read takes you on a new adventure, a new suspect, and once again, a new murder. My favorite scene was at the end of the book when Agent Cross comes face to face with Mary Smith and fights for his life against her. It was the most exciting part of the whole novel. I give this book 4 stars, and to me this was the best book I've read so far. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Seduction in Death
JD's writing is always captivating.The relationship between the main characters is enticing and the story lines are leaving you with wanting her next book in the series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Seduction In Death
I loved this story, as is the case with all J.D. Robb In Death books. Susan Erikson is wonderful; the different voices she uses for each character is amazing.

5-0 out of 5 stars InsightTo Eve
Seduction takes off as most of the "In Death" books do with the story of Eve's dreaded past.However, this book in the series delves into Eve's more "human" nature with J. D. Robb demanding her main character conform to the care of her family and friends.We see a much more vulnerable and "soft" side of Eve (whether or not she initially likes it).The murder mystery moves in different directions from her previous books as well.We know who the bad guys are almost from the start but it is always interesting to explore the mindful ways of our favorite copand watch her think her way through to solving yet another homicide.I especially enjoyed the manner in which Robb enhanced the development of the secondary character-relationships of Peabody and McNab (becoming exclusive!) and Charles and Louise.The "In Death" characters are like family after you have gotten this far in the series and you'll be hooked and loving each and every one of them, right down to Commander Whitney as you follow the life and times of Eve Dallas, Roarke, Feeney, Mavis, Peabody, McNab and company. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Going From LA to Vegas and Back Trailing a Murderer.
I am not very prone to read "crime" books. Nevertheless as I'm recovering from a surgery, my sister gave me some books to read while I get well.
4-0 out of 5 stars Don't make this Your First Bosch Novel
I'm a huge fan of Michael Connelly, who I believe is simply the best crime novelist writing today.This novel is the fifth in his "Harry Bosch" series about an LAPD Detective solving crimes, often in a way that is at odds with his own department.
4-0 out of 5 stars A very solid mystery
At times in Trunk Music, it's difficult to fathom Harry Bosch's motivations - but this is because Michael Connelly has made him a palpable, real character - with his own murky stew of agendas and impulses.

4-0 out of 5 stars Jack and Jill used the D.C. Hill!
Jack and Jill is another Alex Cross novel by James Patterson.I have loved his characterizations, and enjoy his favorite protagonist Alex Cross whose only fault, it seems to me, is spending too much time working and not enough with his family!He's not too good at love either!

I love the alex cross series. Original and thrilling.The ending to this book was great. Characters are great as well as development. Alex Cross is just too awesome. One of the best books I have read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Total Arrogance!
This British diplomat is a total arrogant pig!We know from the beginning that he is a dastardly murderer, but we read and find how Alex Cross, my favorite Patterson character, solves the crimes and gets the guy (harder than you think!).
