  • T Is for Trespass: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery

    In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton's T Is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private caregiving jobs.

    Could not wait to get it and listened to it all in one day. Kinsey is full of spunk her character is full of life. The narrator is great the characters are all too real. Now for U is for ?? can't wait, keep up the good work!! Love audible books. Why listen to music with so many great stories to consume.

    When reporter Ellen Gleeson gets a "Have You Seen This Child?" flyer in the mail, she almost throws it away. But something about it makes her look again, and her heart stops - the child in the photo is identical to her adopted son, Will. Her every instinct tells her to deny the similarity between the boys, because she knows her adoption was lawful. But she's a journalist and won't be able to stop thinking about the photo until she figures out the truth.

    Elaine says: "Excellent Book"
    "Change of pace for Scottoline!!"
    Overall

    Wow, what a rollercoaster ride! This is a must listen, audio brings it all alive. She changed her pace, changed her characters. Very good narration from Mary Stewart Masterson. I wish more writers would do this. She still gets an A for this work. Keep it up Lisa we are all your fans. What's next?
    Can't wait!! Must listen to this ***

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    Kent says: "MUCH better than I ever expected! Give it a try!"
    "This is a classic"
    Overall

    Wow! What a history lesson and above all a wonderful piece of literature. The whole book from the first paragraph to the last was a true work of art. This is a must for all to hear!!

    Molly and Robin Snow are sisters, and like all sisters they share a deep bond that sustains them through good times and bad. Their careers are flourishing - Molly is a horticulturist and Robin is a world-class runner - and they are in the prime of their lives. So when Molly receives the news that Robin has suffered a massive heart attack, she couldn't be more shocked. At the hospital, the Snow family receives a grim prognosis: Robin may never regain consciousness.

    The beginning was good, then it seemed like she got away from the main subject. I really think it could have been written better. The narration is great. It was just okay in my book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Wow!!!"
    Overall

    This is the best by far of any audio presentation I have heard in a long time. This is a must for audio book listeners. This should get an award for the best audio book of the year!!!!

    Overall

    Bailey White is a master of the craft. Again, wonderful story writing as only Bailey can do it. Lorna Raver somehow puts it all together and breaths life into the story. You can really feel and live the stories. This is true treasure to keep in my audio library to listen to again and again. Bailey White can always be enjoyed and will never grow dull or out of date. This is a true classic just like a favorite pair of jeans.

    John Pellam had been in the trenches of film making, with a promising Hollywood career - until a tragedy sidetracked him. Now he's a location scout, who travels the country in search of shooting sites for films. When he rides down Main Street, locals usually clamor for their chance at 15 minutes of fame. But in a small town in upstate New York, Pellam experiences a very different reception.

    Mary says: "Another winner for Deaver."
    "Another winner for Deaver."
    Overall

    I do believe that with all audio books its the narrator that really makes or breaks a book, and as usual Holter Graham is just a real winner. This book is a true Deaver classic full of twists and turns. Again, you can't go wrong with this one, so chalk another one up for Jeffery. Shallow Graves really is true audio delight.

    Just After Sunset - call it dusk, call it twilight, it's a time when human intercourse takes on an unnatural cast, when nothing is quite as it appears, when the imagination begins to reach for shadows as they dissipate to darkness and living daylight can be scared right out of you. It's the perfect time for Stephen King.

    J says: "King scores another coup"
    "Just keeps getting better and better."
    Overall

    This was fantastic. I must say this was a real masterpiece of literature. I feel so honored to be alive during Stephen King's time. He keeps getting better and better. This is a real must in any library or should I say lover of the horror. Stephen King is the man!! This is a 10 star if I could give it that!!!

    The Bodies Left Behind is an epic cat-and-mouse chase, told nearly in real-time, and is filled with Deaver's patented twists and turns, where nothing is what it seems, and death lingers just around the next curve on a deserted path deep in the midnight forest.

    Deb says: "very disapointing"
    "WONDERFUL!!"
    Overall

    Jeffery Deaver has written a novel that is so full of suspence that it keeps you on edge until the very end. This is a masterpiece, one of his best books ever. Of course, no book is complete without the voice that brings each and every page to life and make no exception Holter Graham is wonderful too. This is a must and should get an award of some type. Most assured this is worth every penny. A must for all audible who love suspence. Deaver's work is suspence at its finest!

    Dewey is the heartwarming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa, as told by his owner and companion of 19 years, Vicki Myron, the librarian who found him on a frigid January morning when he was abandoned as a kitten in the book drop slot. It is also the story of a remarkable small town, which burned down at the beginning of the Depression, only to rebuild itself again.

    The anonymous caller has an ominous tone and an unnerving message about something "real dead . . . buried in your marsh." The eco-volunteer on the other end of the phone thinks it's a prank, but when a young woman's body turns up in L.A.'s Bird Marsh preserve no one's laughing. And when the bones of more victims surface, homicide detective Milo Sturgis realizes the city's under siege to an insidious killer. Milo's first move: calling in psychologist Alex Delaware.

    Jean says: "Deja Vue"
    "FABULOUS!! ALEX DELAWARE WE LOVE YA MAN!!"
    Overall

    Kellerman does it again with another great piece of literature. How can you not love Alex Delaware. He never seems to waiver from his style, his suspense, his work with words cannot be surpassed. John Rubinstein does a fantastic job of bringing his books to life. You are there, you are in the moment with Alex Delaware. I just love this audible book. Keep up the great job and never be without a really, really good audible book like this one.
