The Vanished Man
The Vanished Man by Jeffery Deaver (Other)
This was the second time we have listened to a book in the Lincoln Rhyme series. The books work well in the abridged audio format, enabling you to listen but not miss your exit on the highway, especially on a long drive home from vacation. In this story, the criminal used illusions to hide his identity and repeatedly escape the scene of his various crimes. There were enough twists and surprises to make it interesting. Rhyme, his girlfriend, Sachs and the other supporting characters make a good team. -- Added by dabell on 02/25/2014

Twelve Red Herrings
Twelve Red Herrings by Jeffrey Archer (1990s)
The book is a collection of 12 unrelated short stories. It was a great vacation read, easy to start, stop, and start again. Archer is a fine storyteller and even the 20 page stories were enjoyable. -- Added by dabell on 02/25/2014

The Stone Monkey
The Stone Monkey by Jeffery Deaver (2000s)
First experience with Deaver. It was a good story to hear while driving down the road, but difficult to determine how I feel about Deaver's writing style. The main character is Lincoln Rhyme, who directs efforts to solve crime from a wheelchair. In this story the team chases Ghost,who wants to track down and kill a group of refugees who survive a disasterous sailing to America.Lots of mind games and suspense as the hunt played out. We will definetely give Deaver another listen as we travel. -- Added by dabell on 02/09/2014

Only Time Will Tell
Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer (1930s)
This book is the first in The Cliffton Chronicles, which I believe is a series of 3 books. This one is set in London and introduces 2 families, the Barringtons and the Cliftons. Their lives intertwine in ways that set the stage for some heartache and dtama. Archer is a wonderful storyteller. I look forward to continuing to follow the families, once Harry gets out of the jam he creates for himself at the end of this book. -- Added by dabell on 02/09/2014

The King's Deception (with bonus novella The Tudor Plot)
The King's Deception (with bonus novella The Tudor Plot) by Steve Berry (Other)
I enjoy Steve Berry's style of writing a thriller using historical fiction. The story is set in the present, but it uncovers the "truth" about Queen Elizabeth I. Cotton Malone is the ex-CIA hero, chasing the good and bad guys around England. He is joined by his son and an interesting cast of characters. An enjoyable read! -- Added by dabell on 01/25/2014
