    Little Emily Steiner left a church meeting late one afternoon and strolled toward home along a lakeside path; a week later, her nude body was discovered, bound in blaze-orange duct tape. Called by the North Carolina authorities, forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta recognizes similarities to the gruesome work of a serial killer who has long eluded the FBI.

    Overall

    The novel was interesting in the beginning and very well narrated, but half-way in, you already know the ending. There are better crime novels.

    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    Dr. Helen Morrison has profiled more than 80 serial killers around the world. What she has learned about them will shatter every assumption you've ever had about the most notorious killers known to man.

    Any additional comments?

    Contrary to other reviews, I did not think Helen Morrison's voice was boring, but eerily calm. The stories are intense and as expected, creepy. The only reason I am not giving a full 5 stars is that towards the end of the novel she talks about how her life/family has dealt with her career, that was the only boring part.

    A classic of Holocaust literature, Gerda Weissmann Klein's memoir tells the moving story of a young woman's experience as a slave laborer for the Nazis and her miraculous liberation. This moving memoir was the inspiration for the Academy Award-winning documentary One Survivor Remembers.

    Jeanne says: "Very good"
    "GREAT LISTEN"
    Overall

    The story starts off a bit slow, but worth listening to. The ending seemed almost unbelievable. Bless Gerda for sharing her story!

    Part history, part true-crime, and entirely entertaining, listen to the story of how the behemoth Oxford English Dictionary was made. You'll hang on every word as you discover that the dictionary's greatest contributor was also an insane murderer working from the confines of an asylum.

    This story seemed too unbelievable to be true. Very interesting that this story is a piece of history yet no one has every known it. Great Purchase

    Mythology has provided inspiration for storytellers and scientists alike. In this 10-hour audiobook, explore the mythology of Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Essential for any student of mythology, literature, or religion. Each subject is 2-5 minutes in length, making the material easy to absorb and navigate.

    LeSLiE says: "Wow! I learned so much."
    "This Beats Ambien!"
    Overall

    The content is very insightful and I could have learned a lot, but the HORRIBLE narration made listening to this for more than 5 minutes absolutely painful. If you need something to put you to sleep then you've found it!

    The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 12 stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his famous detective. They were originally published in the Strand magazine from July 1891 to June 1892.

    Matthew R. Fomby says: "Terrible narration"
    "Horrible!!!!"
    Overall

    Audible should take this off their website! Within 2 minutes I turned it off, the narration is absolutely horrible and kills every one of Sherlock's adventures one word at a time! Don't waist your dollar!

    In this first-person account of becoming the FBI's top serial-killer hunter and a member of a religious order in an attempt to discern the true nature of good and evil, Roger L. Depue searches for an understanding of how evil develops. Between Good and Evil is Depue's look back at a life spent apprehending criminals, especially serial killers, first as a small-town police chief, then an FBI-SWAT team member, Behavioral Sciences Unit chief, and a developer of revolutionary law enforcement programs.

    Victor says: "an autobiography more than a career retrospective"
    "Deceitful Title"
    Overall

    I bought this book expecting to hear all about the "Most Violent Predators" Agent Depue has met, but the first 4 hours is about his childhood and the last 2 are about Jesus.... Interesting, but the title does not match the content.

    London 1900 and Sherlock Holmes finds himself investigating a string of murders that have one common thread -- each of them recalls one of his earlier cases. Has that great mind finally cracked - Watson wonders - and how is all this connected to Britain's latest secret weapon and the doings of the enigmatic Graf von Bork and the mysterious Society for Anglo-German Solidarity?

    John M. Kellum says: "Too Obvious"
    "C+ Version of Sherlock"

    Not my #1 choice mostly due to the horrible accents, but better than some of the others.

    The Silence of the Lambs is an instant classic of chilling psychological suspense. From the tormenting words of homicidal maniac Hannibal Lecter and the flesh-rending depravity of an elusive killer to the sheer courage of a young FBI novice who risks her life to track him down and stop the bloodshed, this critically acclaimed audio production, narrated by Kathy Bates, has an unforgettable intensity.

    Circle K says: "Disappointed"
    "As Good As The Movie"
    Overall

    If you liked the movie, then you'll enjoy this narration. Kathy Bates did a WONDERFUL job and brought life to the characters. The book is equally as "creepy" and thrilling as the movie.
