Survivor 

 
Taylor Langford’s world is torn apart
when he is only thirteen years old—his parents killed, leaving him alone and
orphaned. With no living relatives, he’d certainly be another statistic if not
for the intervention of the policeman who found Taylor in the crawl space where
his mother hid him that fateful night. Despite the tragedy and resulting
anguish in his life, Taylor knows how lucky he is.
Frank Moore is a rookie with the
Dallas Police Department when he and his partner answer a call in Devonshire,
one of the city’s more affluent neighborhoods. They think the young boy in
various pictures throughout the home has been kidnapped until they find him,
shaken but alive. Officer Moore recognizes the pain in the kid’s eyes, having
lost his own mother to cancer when he was just a boy. He steps in, making sure
Taylor is placed with a loving foster family. Over the years, Frank becomes a
permanent fixture in Taylor’s life. 
 
A decade later, the case remains
unsolved and the once gangly, uncertain teenager is now a college graduate who
knows exactly what he wants. He’s coming home to the man that helped mold and
shape his life, the man he’s loved for as long as he can remember, Frank Moore.
But Taylor isn’t the only person returning to Dallas, and while Frank is
distracted by his own conflicting feelings and the new bond growing between the
two, the past creeps up on them, determined to finish what was started ten
years earlier.

The evening was pretty uneventful: a dozen or so traffic stops, issuing citations, and helping a young pregnant woman change a flat tire. Just two hours shy of their shift ending, dispatch came on the radio and asked if any units were in the vicinity of Devonshire. Caleb and Frank exchanged a glance before Frank responded with their current location and said they’d take the call. “I thought they rolled up the sidewalks at night in Devonshire,” Frank said flatly, wondering what could possibly be considered suspicious activity in the affluent, upscale neighborhood.

 

Arriving at the address dispatch provided, they exited the cruiser and walked toward the front door. Frank took in his surroundings, noticing that while few houses had lights on inside—it was two in the morning—most had some type of outside lighting, whether it was the porch, over-the-garage, or motion sensors. The house they were there to check out though, was pitch black inside and out. Something about it felt off to Frank, and his instincts had never been wrong before. “Heads up, Moore, nosy neighbor at three o’clock,” Caleb told him, his voice low but clear.

 

Turning, Frank saw a woman that looked to be about fifty, wearing a long, pink robe and a pair of Ugg slippers, her graying black hair up in a bun. The only reason he knew that useless bit of information was because Caleb’s wife, Justine, had the exact same pair. “Officers, please!” The woman waved them toward her frantically.

What reviewers think of Nick J Russo’s narration… 

 

Wow!  AWESOME story! Gripped me from the very start. Loved the premise. Nick J Russo did a fantastic job with the characters. Highly recommend!

May-december, Friends to Lovers, touch of suspense. Nick J Russo is a favorite narrator of mine and I can never tire of him. His voice is smooth and his pacing s more like telling a story not reading it. I love his voices for both Taylor and Frank and how distinctive they are. This is on my to listen to again list!

MY REVIEW

5 Meows

I love May/December and this didn’t disappoint.
Taylor’s life was turned upside down when he was young and his parents were both murdered tragically. Frank, a police officer on his case stayed in touch and Frank, his partner and his wife, Franks dad and the foster parents that adopt Taylor all become a tight family. Taylor and Frank’s relationship changes about ten years later when Taylor is grown and out of college.

I loved all of the characters in this story. The story is a great romance with a touch of suspense and mystery surrounding the death of Taylor’s family. The story kept me engaged and I really wanted to finish all in one sitting. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Nick J Russo is a favorite narrator of mine and I can never tire of him. His voice is smooth and his pacing s more like telling a story not reading it. I love his voices for both Taylor and Frank and how distinctive they are. This is on my to listen to again list!

Joe and Frank, Frank especially, should follow-up the JAZZ theme from the big bands With the immense impact it had upon the movies of the 1950s, specially the film noir and crime movies. The impact it had and the style it created for the legendary film composers like Elmer Bernstein and Jerry Goldsmith for example. Jazz speeded-up the pace, the editing and even subject matter. Whether it”s MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM, ANATOMY OF A MURDER or so many other films and later TV shows like MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. Great musicians like Count Bassie lit the fuse, blazed the trail which lead to his last big-screen appearance playing April In Paris out by the famous Vasquez Rocks for BLAZING SADDLES. Now that was some surprise to the audience back in 1974, a jazz band out in the desert, in a western. So guys, let”s now take Class Movie Chat and naturally move on to JAZZ in the movies right!
