    The year is 1925. It is sixty degrees below zero. The wind sweeps tons of snow over the deep-frozen Alaskan landscape. The nearest railhead is seven hundred miles away. Airplanes cannot fly. The way to Nome is blocked by a treacherous frozen sound, an icebound port, and mountains to the west. But there is a diphtheria epidemic in Nome. The children need serum from the outside world if they are to survive. Their only hope is a few chosen Eskimo drivers and their teams of dogs.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Cruelest Miles?

    The story of the dogs is fabulous but the book is way more than that. A great history of that time in Alaska -- brave dogs; hearty people


    What did you like best about this story?

    As an owner of a performance dog, I loved hearing about these incredible sled dogs. The detail of the trip, the Alaskan landscape....just everything about the books was great


    Have you listened to any of Barrett Whitener’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I thought he was great

    Chief Inspector Armand Gamache and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's nothing more than a tragic hunting accident, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods.

    Sydney says: "a gentle mystery"

    Carpenter, the Paterson, N.J., lawyer whose wealth allows him to work as seldom as he chooses, is recovering from the loss of the love of his life, Laurie Collins, who has moved home to Findlay, Wis., to become the acting chief of police. When Laurie calls Andy for help after arresting 21-year-old Jeremy Davidson for murders that she thinks he didn't commit, Andy can't resist heading off to Findlay with his faithful dog, Tara.

    J. says: "What a Hoot!"

    Where does Dead Center rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Andy and Lori - love the banter and Andy's wry sense of humor


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    His voice doesn't match my picture of Andy Carpenter, but he is totally terrific as a reader. Very believable


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not generally a reader of mysteries, but love them when I drive. This one is perfect -- not too violent and very entertaining.
