    Story

    Why can't more "gentle" contemporary detective novels like this series be created? I usually avoid U.S. contemporaries because of the
    *poor quality of prose
    *over-the-top plots
    *even more over-the-top action heroes and Barbie heroines who can run in designer shoes
    *campy dialogue
    *even campier formulaic gratuitous sex and violence scenes and
    *overall dumbness factor

    This series avoids the above and has the strength of quirky characters (but not TOO quirky) and a strong city setting. Lippman almost does for Baltimore what Rankin does for Edinburgh. Tess usually takes on a social issue (secondary to the plot), which may put off some readers. Except for #2 in the series (Charm City), I think Lippman grows stronger in her craft in each.

    As for the narrator, Barabara Rosenblatt, who is much criticized in reviews of this series - I am among the minority who don't like her as the voice of Amelia Peabody, but I love her as Tess Monaghan I don't get the criticisms voicied here--- She doesn't slobber over the vowels -- I think her delivery is part of her fresh take on impulsive Tess. She reads as if speaking, so - yes - there are some human sounds. She is not Microsoft Anna!

    So - if you seek a listen to relax, to be engrossed (and not grossed out or blood pressure raised), try this.

    Unemployed at 29, Tess Monaghan is willing to take any freelance job to pay the rent - including a bit of unorthodox snooping for her rowing buddy, Darryl "Rock" Paxton. In a city where someone is murdered almost every day, attorney Michael Abramowitz's death should be just another statistic. But the slain lawyer's notoriety - and his noontime trysts with Rock's fiancée - make the case front page news...and point to Rock as the likely murderer.

    Story

    * very cozy formula: village murder with RCMP inspector teamed with local amateur sleuth on both an investigation and blossoming romance. You can guess easily who the killer is, but that's not the point of the listen! --more of a traditional village cozy than whodunit
    * captures the rural anglophone New Brunswick setting well -- although an outsider, I lived there around that period (1980s) and I "recognized' the characters and voice
    *good, gentle humour; decent writing, especially the dialogue
    * Dufris hits the right notes with all the characters - no over-the-top Canucks, but there is some regional inflection respectfully attempted
    *another gift from the publishing world of e- and audiobooks - I hadn't come across MacLeod/Craig before. I look forward to more of her audiobooks. This first of a series has me hooked.

    Old Agatha Treadway baked her own bread, canned her own vegetables - and died of botulism in her very own kitchen. Accident, says Dr. Druffitt. Murder, says neighbor Janet Wadman. And says it again when she finds the doctor dead, too. Detective Inspector Madoc Rhys, of the royal Canadian Mounted Police, agrees. But who's the killer...? The town miser, who wants the one thing only Mrs. Treadway could have given him? The miser's son who's panting for the doctor's daughter? Widow Druffitt, who's holding secret meetings with unlikely people? The hired girl who listens at keyholes? The hired man who hides in haylofts?

Regina's greatest hits:
  • Down Home Murder: Laura Fleming, Book 1

    "Folksy overkill"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    My fault. Consider the title. If I weren't ready for home-fried folk cliches, I shouldn't have clicked on purchase. On the other hand, this would have been a much better book had an editor (remember editors, a nearly extinct species?) red-penciled through the worst cliches. Rode hard and put up wet. Dry as a bone. Sweet as honey.

    There's a core of a pretty good mystery here, which is why I gave it a 3. Pretty good.

    One more thing, as long as I'm complaining: The narrator's voice is too old for the character's. The latter is somewhere in her early 20s. The former might have daughters that age. The middle-aged young person was a distraction.

  • The Cuckoo's Calling

    "Rich, complex page turner"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I bought it after reading in the NYT that JK Rowling wrote it, and it's a winner. I was ready for her to write an adult winner, even after reading her "A Casual Vacancy" and finding it lacking. What a depressing dirge of a novel that was, quite the contrast to her Harry Potters. I wondered if she were going to continue to save her energy and humor for children, and pour on the grim for adults.

    This book is the answer, and it's a resounding no. Great writing, Brilliant, seemingly tossed-off descriptions that lodge each character in the head as real. Great detective plot. Wonderful characters, none stereotypes. Surprises abound. I bought it because of the reviews, and because I love the Potter series, which I read aloud to a niece as each came out. This is as good as the Potters, and completely different. Rowling is a writer for the ages, our Graham Greene, maybe. Also, fabulous narrator.

    I love everything about "The Cockoo's Calling," even though I'm not interested in celebrity culture. Turns out that I'm very interested in Rowling's version. That's what great fiction can do - take you places you didn't know you wanted to go. .

  • Quarry: A Quarry Novel, Book 1

    "Collins should be better known"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I found the Quarry series by accident, and wow, I'm glad I did. Although Collins wrote them in the '70s, they are far less dated than many more famous from that time. Despite the sexist pulp covers on each one, sexism is not a problem here, at least for me.

    Quarry resembles Richard Stark's (Donald Westlake's) Parker, but I think the writing is better and the character more likable, at least for a hit man. Well done. Perfect narrator.

    The only problem is, each book is pretty short. Even so, I think each one is worth a credit. I plan to listen to them all at least twice.

    What can i say other than how funny and great this book was. From the beginning laughter was included and it was loud, specially remember this review when you hear the word salut in the beginning of the book, was at the office and i couldn't stop myself laughing.

    We are at book 5 and the number of characters is increasing and you get to know few new ones here, and some of them are unique.

    Of course narration was great. Lorelei King is a great narrator and one of my favorites.

    Darynda Jones you have done a wonderful job here, and don't make us wait for he next Charley Davidson book.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    The bride carried no decaying roses, but her bridal dress was torn and burnt. Her bare legs, starved needle points, staggered disjointedly. The veil hung low over her face. I had my pistol, however I could not shoot. If it was a ghost, the bullet would surely pass through. If it was flesh, then I would be shooting dead a woman. Her hands, the fingernails long and cracked, lifted up the veil. Her face! Even in the darkness I could see its ruin.

    He leaped up, feeling much better than I did, and chased me into my own room, so that I could get changed. There was a large crowd who had come to see the tomb. Holmes and I made our way through. I noticed Ini intently watching us. Mr. and Mrs. Fairfax were standing in the tunnel with someone from the Department of Antiquities. They had been waiting for us. The five of us made our way through the tunnel and back to the tomb. I couldn't wait to see if there really was a Pharaoh in the next room.
