This is not a story as much as it is a history or documentary of the 1860 murder of a young boy, Saville Kent, and the well known and respected Scotland Yard detective, Jonathan Whicher. I will confess, it gets a bit boring at times so if you are looking for something with action, you may want to pass this by. If you are looking for a history lesson of the British police, their words and phrases, and how investigations were handled, you'll enjoy this book.
I just couldn't get into this audiobook, despite having high hopes for it. The writing is bland and lacks energy. The narration is lifeless. I don't think I will attempt another book by this author.
When 92-year old Holocaust survivor Jossi Goldberg is found executed in his home, Detectives Kirchhoff and Bodenstein are given the case. When they are being pressured into letting the case go - but not before they have a chance to order an autopsy - the detectives become intrigued. During the autopsy a strange tattoo is found on Goldberg, the type that was given to SS soldiers, it doesn't seem possible this Holocaust survivor was an SS soldier. Within days, two similar murders are committed. The one common thread between all the murders is all of them were lifelong friends with Vera von Kaltensee, baroness, well-respected philanthropist, and head of an old, rich family. The detectives find themselves being drawn into a murder mystery where no one is who they claim to be.
This was a great story and great narration. I highly recommend!
When single-mother, Jane, moves to town with her kindergarten aged son, she is befriended by Madeline and Celeste.
Madeline is outspoken, not only in her demeanor but also in her dress. Her youngest daughter is also in kindergarten, along with Celeste's twin boys.
Celeste, the beauty of the group, is the envy of many with her beautiful sons, successful husband and leisurely lifestyle.
Jane is quite ordinary; soft-spoken, and introverted, she prefers not to draw attention to herself.
The story begins on school trivia night when a horrible accident occurs - or was it an accident? - until the lies and deceptions these three misfit friends are keeping come to an explosive head.
What an excellent story! It keeps you guessing, right up the end.
When 39-year old Alice wakes up on the floor of a gym with no idea how she got there or who the people were hovering around her, she discovers that she has lost the last 10 years of her life. As she struggles to make sense of everything going on in her life (who are those children and why was she getting divorced?), she can't help but to think that maybe getting her memory back wouldn't be the best thing for her.
After three attempts at a wedding with no successes, Kate makes a plan to find the perfect husband. She heads to Kentucky, to a resort that should be full of "Mr. Rights," but she keeps running into Mr. Wrong. Things just don't seem to go well for Kate and in particular, not well for her dates, much to Kate's chagrin.
This is such a delightful read, you won't be disappointed!
I have enjoyed every one of the Coffeehouse Mysteries on audiobooks. The narrator, Rebecca Gibel is awesome!
In this book, Claire Cosi's Irish immigrant barista is murdered during their annual Christmas cookie swap and Claire will leave no stone unturned to find her barista's killer and bring him or her to justice.
I enjoy all the books in this series and the narrator is great! The books have the recipes for all the delicious treats mentioned in the book. You can't go wrong with these audios.
I got this book due to a review of someone I follow. I just couldn't get into this book, despite the excellent review given by my friend. I tried multiple times however, the narrator just didn't do it for me.
