Another 'wonderful' Grisham, though 'wonderful' is not the best choice of adjective. Grisham strikes terror into the reader. He is still onto the question of the death penalty, and the danger of killing an innocent man. This is a great book. I was literally glued to my phone because I needed to keep listening. Read perfectly by Scott Sowers. Do not miss this one!

There should be a warning on the cover of this book: Only for Jehova's witnesses! or something like it. The story in itself (or rather the 2 stories) are far-fetched and rather boring and long-winded. The long passages about how somebody found god and how they are talking to god are beyond boring and finally made me stop listening to this audiobook. As the French so aptly say: "penible!!!"

Questo romanzo si presenta come un poliziotto, ed e veramente un 'roman a l'eau de rose' che fa schifo! L'ho ascoltato per l'italiano, ma ho veramente fatto fatica ad ascoltare senza fine le descrizioni dei baci, guardi, provi d'amore etc. Se volete un vero poliziotto, sopratutto non comprare questo 'trash', se volete un romanzo d'amore schifoso e senza interesse, dovete assolutamente comprare questo libro. Una vera delusione!

This was no accident.... Haunting, compelling, this psychological thriller will have you hooked. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl and Daughter. Best friends are there for each other through thick and thin. You trust them with your life. At least that's what Emma, Daisy, Leanne, and Al think. But all that changes when they embark on a trip of a lifetime together. When they return home, only two of them are left alive, and the group has been torn apart by lies and deception.

This is the story of 4 friends who went to Nepal and ended up in a weird kind of resort that turns out to be dangerous and even life-threatening. I definitely did not enjoy this story, I do not see why it was split up in alternating chapters (the present and the past), and I was somewhere between angry and bored with the narrative of the Nepal resort. To my mind, the way the main character behaves is unbelievable and unrealistic. You cannot even call it a good thriller, as the end is also rather far-fetched. Definitely not worth listening to!

A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

The story is not too bad, even though towards the end you can guess what is going to happen. Unfortunately, to my mind the narrator Kevin T. Collins really wants to do things too well and overdoes the reading: too much feeling, you fell like you are being read a sentimental novel with lots of heartbreak and no happy ending, and not a legal thriller. So while the story was quite nice, I will certainly not buy an Audible book read by Collins again.

The story takes almost until the last third to gather some speed, the plot is fine though not extraordinary. The whole novel might probably have been condensed to half the length. This is a detective story (legal 'thriller' would be too much, there is nothing thrilling here) that works fine if you have something else to do (ironing?) and want to be entertained a little at the same time. On the whole totally average, as is my three star evaluation of this book.

> Beyond the Shadow of a Doubt is, at first glance, a legal thriller in which figures a detailed account of a trial for an innocent young man's life. But, unlike most books of that genre, the novel may be said to be more character- than plot-driven with color and much attention to the family lives of the attorney and the defendant. Though not overtly stated, the thrusts of the book are two - the inherent defect of a prosecutory system that foresees the occasional execution of the wrong person, and the vagaries of chance that, without warning, can embroil us in a struggle for our lives.

This is a book with three strands of narrative, but there is no real plot, and the three strands do not really seem to hang together (what does the rape story have to do with the guy accused of murder?). None of these three 'stories' are really gripping, and one wonders why they would be (kind of) forced into one story. But then at the very end the reader gets enlightened: Dr. (!) Neufeld just wanted to drive home the big moral about the death penalty. Though I fully agree with the author's view on the death penalty, I don't think that the moral was wrapped up very well. Maybe the author should write non-fiction rather than not very convincing or even entertaining fiction.

This is a thriller in the true sense of the term: It keeps you hooked. Very well read by Bill Ten Eyck, who really makes the protagonists come alive. Though Sydney Bauer's use of vocabulary may at times be a little melodramatic (the one thing that bugs me), the plot is well thought out, and the ending raises a couple of interesting legal questions that are food for thought.
