Memory Man by David Baldacci

Annd I have a new series to follow on audio. Memory Man by David Baldacci is the first in the Amos Decker series and one I will continue. A murder mystery thriller feature Amos Decker was an intense thriller that came to life on audio thanks to narrators Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy. Memory Man not only had a compelling mystery but its hero made it even more interesting.

Under Dark Skies by A.J. Scudiere

What a delightfully interesting beginning to a series Under Dark Skies by A.J. Scudiere turned out to be. This is the first book in the Nightshade Forensic Files series and is at its heart a FBI thriller but Scudiere added paranormal elements to this unit of the FBI.

Their journey to survive finds them being admitted as patients in the Alphabet House, an asylum for Nazi officers. Adler-Olsen takes us on their harrowing journey during the war and after.

See How Small: A Novel by Scott Blackwood

See How Small by Scott Blackwood is a literary fiction sharing the aftermath of the brutal murder of three teenage girls. It shares the story of the survivors, the suspects and weaves in a paranormal effect involving the three dead girls who hover over the town and make occasional visits. While this tale with its meandering, erratic time line will not be for everyone, you cannot help but appreciate Blackwood’s beautiful prose, and haunting look into this small Texas town.

The Swan & the Jackal by J.A. Redmerski

The series In the Company of Killers by J.A. Redmerski has continually blown me away. For lack of a better phrase or perhaps the most genuine assessment, “ this series is a total mind-f@ck.” Redmerski brings her dark, sadistic characters to life making you love them even as you cringe. The Swan & the Jackal is the third story and brings us Fredrick Gustvsson’s story. At its heart, it is the love story of Fredrick and Seraphina. These characters are dark, cold-blooded murderers, and assassins. Redmerski chewed me up and spit me out as their tale unfolded.

Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp

Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp was a fun paranormal murder mystery with a side dish of romance. The tale offered up plenty of paranormal woo-woo from ghost advisers to a psychic team that together could walk inside the mind of the killer and his victims. Fast paced with a snarky protagonist and drop dead gorgeous television psychic I quickly consumed Through His Eyes.
