    When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.

    Neil Gainman seems to be a favourite with us Aussies, and why not, I could listen to his voice forever and his marvellous mind always entertains with totally different stories. To have a tale set in a graveyard with an ophaned baby is basically weird! But in the hands of a master storyteller it keeps one enthralled until the end. Totally recommended.

    The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

    Forensic anthropologist Dr. David Hunter should be at home with the woman he loves. Instead, as a favour to a beleaguered police officer, he is heading to the remote Hebridean island of Runa. Hunter has witnessed death in many forms, but even he is shocked by what he finds: a body almost totally incinerated except for the feet and a single hand, untouched by fire.

    Lia says: "Enjoyable"
    "Pity about the End"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the story and the description of a tough life on an isolated island, overdone in places but up until the end I was happy to go with it, but I hate unexpected cliff-hanger endings, on tv series-fine will wait until show returns, and if I know I am reading a book in series I will read them all, but this is not mentioned anywhere, not fair, so whatever happens I am not giving the author the satisfaction of selling me the sequel, don't care now, plenty of other great 'listens' to buy.
