Sable Reyes is a witch, but not just any old witch. She has the gruesome ability to speak to the dead by manipulating organs. Living on her own, she must do what she can to survive. Often that involves using her gruesome form of necromancy to get information for whomever can pay her price. That is, until another crime boss comes along. This one with an ability so powerful and frightening even Sable may have met her match. As the bodies pile up, these dark powerhouses head for a collision course that could lead to their mutual destruction.

The story was made average by being badly narrated in a monotone blandness that drove me up the wall, I switched from reading Tim Miller to listening to him as I have an hour in the morning and an hours drive in the evening from how to work. Listening to the narration made it feel like two hours each way, Tim some of your books are great but change you narrator please.

Somewhere just past Texas hill country is a little town called Psychoville. You won't find it on any maps, but it is there. Deputy Spurlock is the law in Psychoville. He remains on the lookout for weary travelers unlucky enough to pass through this tiny town. The townsfolk are always on the lookout for new talent for their snuff films, led by the beautiful and deadly Echo, or human sacrifices for an ancient cult.

The Pharmacist of Auschwitz is the little-known story of Victor Capesius, a Bayer pharmaceutical salesman from Romania, who, at the age of 35, joined the Nazi SS in 1943 and quickly became the chief pharmacist at the largest death camp, Auschwitz. Based in part on previously classified documents, Patricia Posner exposes Capesius's reign of terror at the camp, his escape from justice, and how a handful of courageous survivors and a single brave prosecutor finally brought him to trial for murder 20 years after the end of the war.

We all need to read books like this one lest we forget the horror that mankind can inflict on the innocent under the pretence of might is right. We need to remember the things people will do through greed and power, to those that can not defend themselves is called tyranny and needs to be stopped before it starts. The horror of the Holocaust is unimaginable, what those poor people went through we will never truly know, but records like this need to be made mandatory reading in our schools, lest we forget as the true horror will be lost to time forever if we do not.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz is based on the true story of Lale and Gita Sokolov, two Slovakian Jews who survived Auschwitz and eventually made their home in Australia. In that terrible place, Lale was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival - literally scratching numbers into his fellow victims' arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust.

Ragus, was the real hero in this story, not the IRA terrorist murdering scumbag portrayed as a decent familyman. If you got rid of that connection to the murdering filth portrayed as freedom fighters, you would gave a great story.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

I like Tim millers stories, but I lasted 7 chapters before I switched of the book as the narrator is seriously to much "homegirl" in her narration., it was highly irritating and to be honest lets the story down. i guess I will have to read the book to find out what happened.
