    Ellery Queen likes sophistication, savoir faire, and all the swinging assets of Manhattan and its environs. So what in the world is he doing in this unearthly place? It is the job of the famous detective to find out which of the Wrights is the town poisoner. He must match his wits with a diabolically cunning and ruthless killer, while defending himself against a charge of murder.

  • Classic Railway Murders

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 47 mins)

    Story

    These masterful stories reflect the classic railway era in Britain and provide the perfect setting for the perfect murder - or almost perfect. Challenge your own skills of deduction as you match wits with the best. Narrator Patrick Malahide's evocation of time, place, and culture is imbued with moody mystery most fine.

    Hillary says: "Great stories, poor format"
    "Great, old classy stuff"
    Overall

    If you love the smell of snuff in your nostils and the clang of the railways iron against iron, you'll love this book, its rustic verbage fits wonderfully, right along with the deerstalker hat of Sherlock, and the rose pin of Periot. I could smell the tea, tabbacco and smug all the way from London 1902 to Chicago, 2004. Great reads.

    Story

    Bob Woodward tells the behind-the-scenes story of how President George W. Bush and his top national security advisers led the nation to war. Woodward's virtual wiretap into the White House Situation Room reveals a stunning group portrait of an untested president.

    Chris says: "An excellent book"
    "woodward at war?"
    Overall

    i found his (BW) own thoughts and feelings came out a bit too much; after reading Watergate, and then this, you will know Woodward, which is Essential to understanding his writings and his own influenced feelings in his work. Hmmm, makes one think twice about his... jounalism.
