From Publishers Weekly
Sleepy Nantucket Island has become a homicide hotspot, with two unexplained deaths. While the murders appear to local cops to be unrelated, Detective Timothy Brooks, a recent transplant to the island, sees similarities in the corpses' wounds. Meanwhile, spectral disturbances, including sightings and eerie moving furniture, are plaguing both locals as well as the summer crowd. Hollywood star Annette Carlson, who bought a place following a stint in drug rehab, is besieged by visitations that she is certain are not figments of her overtaxed imagination. Brooks begins to see parallels between the recent killings and Carlson's bizarre accounts.

From Publishers Weekly
In this exhaustive and sometimes exhausting political action thriller, it's 2009, and Secret Service agent Laura Chapman is pulled off her White House detail to identify and thwart an assassin who has been paid $10 million by a foreign government to kill the president. The only clues: the assassin is male and he's a Secret Service agent himself. Laura, who has spent more than a decade on duty at the White House, is not your standard, black suit and earplug-wearing poker-faced agent: she drinks too much, smokes pot, sees apparitions and gets depressed. The son of true crime writer Alan Hynd, with more than 15 novels to his credit (A Room for the Dead, etc.), Noel Hynd knows the ins and outs of Washington's agencies both public and secret. He meticulously describes Laura's investigation step by frustrating step....

From AudioFile
At the outset, it seems T.D. Fitzgerald and his Great Brain have reformed, but soon it turns out that T.D. has just been taking a break from swindling, conniving, and plotting. In a style reminiscent of his fine work on A LONG WAY FROM CHICAGO, Ron McLarty narrates from the perspective of J.D., the Great Brain's hapless younger brother. McLarty's performance has a forthright, innocent tone that, coupled with Fitzgerald's excellent writing, helps the listener see what J.D. cannot in almost all his brother's schemes. McLarty also has an excellent sense of timing and pace for the many comic scenes. This is a winner for the whole family.
