    A trail of ominous clues comprise a mystery that leads from an English hamlet to the city of Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. The trap is set, the game is afoot; but can Holmes and Russell catch an elusive killer, or has the murderer caught them?

    Mary Twain says: "Best Holmes since Arthur Conan Doyle"
    "Couldn't turn it off!"
    Overall

    One of the best audio books I've heard. If you like Holmes, and female heroines, this is for you!

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Branden says: "Phenomenallly detailed..."
    "Slow to start, but a great audio book"
    Overall

    There is so much detail at every level in this book that at first, I didn't know if I would like it, but I stuck with it and am very glad I did. The author has a great talent for setting a scene and I was playing a movie in my head of what she was describing all the way. She could do with less description in some cases, but overall an excellent book.

    Three years have passed since the widowed Dowager Royina Ista found release from the curse of madness that kept her imprisoned in her family's castle of Valenda. Her newfound freedom is costly, bittersweet with memories, regrets, and guilty secrets, for she knows the truth of what brought her land to the brink of destruction. And now the road, escape, beckons...A simple pilgrimage, perhaps. Quite fitting for the Dowager Royina of Chalion.

    Madeleine says: "Superb"
    "Best audio book yet!"
    Overall

    I've listened to hundreds of audio books, but I think this was the best so far. I loved the first book, Curse of Chalion, and this was even better! I wound up taking a 3 hour bath in cold water because I didn't want to stop listening. I'm sorry it's over.

    I hope we hear more from Ista and Di Cazirel!

    The New Jersey State Police had started calling him Howdy Doody, after the famous TV puppet of the 1950s. Three people had been killed in northern New Jersey, then three in Manhattan, and another in the Bronx, in a 13-month period. All of them were found hung up with strings attached to their limbs, like puppets.

    Emily says: "Surprisingly good"
    "NOT FOR DOG LOVER'S!!"
    Overall

    Daniel Hecht is one of my favorite authors, and I got almost halfway through this book before the bad guy in the story starts doing experimental brain surgery on dogs, cutting out pieces of their brains while they are awake, etc. etc.

    I am a big dog lover, and though I tried, I just couldn't continue listening, it made me physically sick. I don't have a problem with descriptions of things done to humans, but I couldn't get through this. If graphic descriptions of drilling holes in the heads of dogs while they are strapped to a table and awake bothers you, don't listen!! What a waste of a potentially good book!!
