‘All skate, change directions.’  ‘Just Say No.’  ‘Gag me with a spoon.’  If you know what these sayings mean, or better yet, if you’ve actually heard them used not-ironically, I invite you to flash back to the eighties by reading My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix.  This is a nostalgia-filled horror novel, which sounds […]

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 […]

The Ruin is the first in the Cormac Reilly series and I somehow got it as an Audible freebie.  Cormac is a homicide detective in Ireland and has been for 20 years. He has had real success but has just transferred from to a new location because of his girlfriend, Emma’s job. He’s being shunted […]

I love this Will Trent series  and I’m so happy I was able to listen to it all with the new audio recordings, so everything was the same narrator.  Every book seems to get better.  There is a sharp contrast between man’s inhumanity to man based on greed or superiority or need to control others, […]

Other than minor details, they could fit in […]
