Bloodletting – Michael McBride

Bloodletting is an Audiobook available on Audible.com and Narrated by Scott Thomas. Scott does a great job with the Female voice and the male FBI agent in this story. The story itself is very intense involving multiple mutilated body’s found in several states with no suspects. 

Hundreds of miles away mummified remains are found and an anthropologist is taken from her dig in South America, by the FBI, to look at the remains. The anthropologist and the FBI Agent are old Friends and wonder why they are brought together for this case.

Plans for DNA manipulation going back to WWII and the Nazis comes to light and the mystery takes a sinister turn.

This thriller makes you think and shiver as your listening. What possibly could happen next? Will they ever stop this serial killer? Will they ever solve this crime?

Bloodletting is a wild ride and worth listening to more than once.

This book was gifted to me for an honest review from a third party.

Half Past Midnight-Audiobook Review

Jeff Brackett’s Half Past Midnight, Narrated by Corey Snow is a great book. It keeped me rivited to my speakers throughout the entire story.

The story is in the same genre as Televisions “Revolution” except this book is much better; sticking to a single storyline and this story is complete.

The story starts quickly, and the characters are established with the depth needed according to the story line and then grow as the story moves forward.

In short, World War III starts and Leeland Dawsett is a survivalist that has prepared his family for the possibility of war. When he sees a second “sun” in the sky outside Houston he knows he only has a little time to move his family outside the target rich area of Houston, Texas.

As Leeland and his family move North to his Mother-in-laws home the outlaws are already out in force. This story moves from one man’s effort to protect his family and moves forward to him becoming part of a community that is trying to survive and rebuild after Nuclear bombs and EMP blasts have left all modern electronics useless.

Nothing is boring in this story as it keeps you on the edge of your seat. The author’s use of humor is balanced with the bloody violence of war.  I was presently suprised at every aspect of this story. Truely gripping and realistic in my limited knowledge of the subject matter.

I highly recommend this audiobook.

Dream Child Book #3 – Audiobook Review

Dream Child by J.J. DiBenedetto and Narrated by Heather Jane Hogan is DiVenedetto’s third book in the Dream Series. At this time the first four book are available on Audible.com as well as a short story that takes place between book 3&4 as Betty and Howard Barnes take a European Vacation.

Dream Child revolves around Sara’s 4 year old daughter who has inherited Sara’s Gift. You learn that as in other books the ability to see others dreams only manifests itself if you meet the person. Keeping a 4 year old from meeting people that she may dream about is just another thing for Sara to think about when raising her daughter.

The audiobook is another excellent listen as Sara meets and begins to see the dreams of relatives and of a Congressman from her district, whom she happened to meet in Washington DC.

If you think you know what a Congressmen is thinking or dreaming about then you may begin to understand how disturbing those dreams could be. 

Sara, while completing her residency and raising children at night and trying to save them during the day; will she solve the mystery of her dreams in time. Will she survive the stress. The personnel conflict and mental anguish are apparent and felt in every chapter.

I highly recommend this series for all but mostly for young women who want to do it all. Sara is an excellent roll model for anyone wanting to achieve their DREAMS….

Dream Doctor Dream Series#2 – Audiobook Review

Dream Doctor by J.J. DiBenedetto and Narrated by Heather Jane Hogan is the 2nd book in the Dream Series.

Once again Sara Barnes is back, having graduated from college and starting a new adventure: medical school. Her dreams have been her own for some time now; after her last adventure in “Dream Student”.  Now as Sara is living in close quarters with people again the dreams return. Some telling, some reveling, and some murderous.

As Sara trys to keep others dreams a secret, she finds a parallel to keeping secrets as a future doctor. How many secrets can Sara keep this time. Will her life be threatened once again because of what she dreams. 

New characters are introduced into Sara’s life and the stress of medical school as well as her dreams start to affect every aspect of her life. 

Medical School is a full endeavor all by itself, add Sara’s dreams, her friends troubled lives, and the possibility of murder; Sara must balance her Life, Love, and insatiable curiosity all while passing medical school and staying alive.

Dream Doctor is another great Listen, and the good news there are more. Look for my upcpming review of Dream Child and Dream Family.

I enjoy Heather Jane Hogans continued narration of this series. “Dream Doctor” as well as the entire Dream Series is an Excelent read or in my case listen.
