    Within the pages of very rare books, some centuries old, lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell’s unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes - and sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Key has reappeared on the black market.

    Valerie says: "Copper Beach- ok story (Paranormal but not arcane)"
    "Another Jayne Ann Krentz hit for me."

    What made the experience of listening to Copper Beach the most enjoyable?

    As usual, Jayne gave me an uplifting story with quirky characters and some wonderful humor.


    If you’ve listened to books by Jayne Ann Krentz before, how does this one compare?

    I gave this book a three simply because there are several of Jayne's books that I love so much that this one has too much competition. However, the book was as satisfying for me as I thought it would be, although I felt it had too many arcane similarities, yet it wasn't linked to the arcane. Since the arcane society started in England a few centuries ago, I could have accepted that there were arcane people in modern society here as well as on another planet.


    Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

    Sam was my favorite. I felt she caught his subtle humor perfectly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I always want to listen to one of Jayne's books in one sitting, and this one was no different.

  • A Little Death in Dixie

    The Blues were born out of need, anger and pride. Murder comes from those same dark places. Memphis has both. One of Memphis' most seductive and notorious socialites has vanished. Either she's off on another drunken escapade or the disappearance is something much more frightening. What begins as an ordinary day's work for Detective Billy Able quickly grows into a complex spider's web of tragedy, mystery, suspicion, and sordid secrets including a few of Billy's own.

    Linda says: "Great story and excellent reader."

    What made the experience of listening to A Little Death in Dixie the most enjoyable?

    I read this book in print form and loved it. I wanted to see how it translated into audio. I have to say I actually enjoyed it better in audio than in print. I lived in Memphis several years ago, and the story is so Memphis that I felt as if I was back there.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The book is very Southern gothic, along the lines of James Lee Burke. The story builds in layers, introducing you to characters you love and characters you love to hate, and it has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end.


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    I was worried that a reader wouldn't be able to pick up on the nuances that are so very much Memphis. Jeffrey Kafer did such a great job that I found myself unable to turn off the book, even though I already knew the plot. I'd definitely listen to other books read by this reader.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No one is really who you think they are.
