Audio:  In The Deep by Loreth Anne White @Loreth #SarahZimmerman #BrillianceAudio #LoveAudiobooks

In the Deep is a story told mostly by women.  There is not much dialogue; we get mostly the stream of thoughts of the women.   Primarily,  Mrs. Martin Cresswell-Smith and a senior constable, Lozza Bianchi tell us the story.   The Mrs. does not always seem to be a reliable narrator, either. The blurb tells us […]

Somehow, I thought with the title, The Crime Beat, I would be getting a true crime story.  The genre is mystery / thriller and it is fiction.  The main characters are an unlikely duo.  Jane Cole is a crime beat reporter who is a widow.  Rob Warren is a former marine, cop and now tracking […]

This is my first experience with this author, but it is also her first mystery / suspense/ thriller which is one of my favorite genres. When No One is Watching is creepy and a bit horrifying but I think it is because a lot of the story is realistic. Sadly, those with money or positions […]

I really enjoyed Some Choose Darkness so I was thrilled to hear there would be more with these characters.  Lane and Rory are an interesting couple. Rory is a forensic reconstructionist who uses her unique personal style to connect to details in a case as no one else does. Lane, her partner, is a psychologist […]

What a terrifying and gut-wrenching ride!  All His Pretty Girls is an exciting story with the two main characters being a cop and the criminal.  I wouldn’t have noticed this as much, but I just read a science fiction story with this same dynamic.   It’s really frightening how difficult it is for cops to catch […]

I listened to Gone to Dust after seeing it as an Audible daily deal and have continued with the Nils Shapiro series .    I really enjoyed the Minnesota setting since so much is familiar, having lived there for many years.   Dead West,  the fourth book in the series, is a whole different feel as it […]
