    Story

    I've read most all of Sara Patetsky's books and have always liked them. This was the first one I've tried as an audiobook and probably my last. I didn't care at all for the reader. The males voices were just louder than the female voices and so always seemed like they were shouting.

    Morrissey, head of London's Regional Crime Squad, is trying to bring down a financial empire which is involved with organised crime and drug smuggling. He enlists the help of a Welshman and his pretty ex-girlfriend to aid him in the 'Snakes and Ladders' operation.Michael Francis Gilbert (1912- 2006) is recognized as one of the most versatile British mystery writers. He was a lawyer in London for many years and at one point had Raymond Chandler as his client. He wrote almost every sort of mystery and thriller.

    Inspector Thomas Lynley is mystified when he's sent undercover to investigate the death of Ian Cresswell at the request of the man's uncle, the wealthy and influential Bernard Fairclough. The death has been ruled an accidental drowning, and nothing on the surface indicates otherwise. But when Lynley enlists the help of his friends Simon and Deborah St. James, the trio's digging soon reveals that the Fairclough clan is awash in secrets, lies, and motives.

    Story

    I love mysteries and Elizabeth George has been one of my favorite authors for over 20 years. But this is the first audiobook of hers I have tried. Even though it is one of the few stories I partially figured out, I still really enjoyed it. Lots of twists and turns plus good narration made it a great listen.

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, Margaret Mitchell's great novel of the South is one of the most popular books ever written. Within six months of its publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind had sold a million copies. To date, it has been translated into 25 languages, and more than 28 million copies have been sold. Here are the characters that have become symbols of passion and desire....

    Story

    I have seen this movie many times and enjoyed the story. But the book has so much more to offer - about the Civil War, about Atlanta, and of course, about Scarlett and her relationships. I can now see why this story is a classic. Great narration adds to the story.

    Case One: A little girl goes missing in the night. Case Two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack. Case Three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.

    Carrie says: "Deftly written, completely original mystery"

    Story

    Very satisfying book. Set of seemingly unrelated stories that weave together cleverly. These stories are so good that the BBC made a set of 3 episodes to air on PBS. The subsequent books with the protagonist Jackson Brody are very good too. I have listened to them all.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    Story

    If you've never listened to Dick Hill read one of these stories, you don't know what you are missing. Lee Child called this book his "prequel sequel". So it is for established fans as well as soon to be fans sincce it starts at the beginning. Essential for any Lee Child/Jack Reacher fan and a great listen for anyone else.

    I tried this audiobook after Parade Magazine rated it as one of their top audiobooks of the year. Two years later, it is still one of my favorite audiobooks and made me a fan of her stories for life.

    In the brilliant new literary thriller by the award-winning author of Case Histories, Jackson Brodie, adored single-dad detective, is caught in a web of mystery following a grisly attack in the street. Two years after the events of Case Histories, which left him a retired millionaire with an occasional girlfriend in Julia, a former client, Jackson has followed her to Edinburgh for its famous summer festival.

    Carrie says: "Kate Atkinson should never be abridged"
    "Not Kate's best"
    Overall

    I have listened to all of her other books (which I really liked) and this one was a disappointment. Story not as good and didn't really care for the narration. And hated the awful music tracks added to the beginning and ending of every chapter.
