    A young girl is strangled. Then the senior biologist in the forensic lab where her body is taken is also found dead. Adam Dalgleish has a baffling enquiry on his hands.

    starts out slow and somewhat confusing; but once I figured out PD was introducing all of the potential suspects and the victim before the actual crime takes place...I was hooked. The reader is excellent; able to switch voices with ease and keep tempo quite well.

    Do you have any additional comments?

    the second half of the book was much better than the first half (the part with Sherlock Holmes. I had trouble distinguishing the voices in the first half and following the story line, but others may not.

    The death of Lord Edward Crick has unleashed a torrent of gossip through the seedy taverns and elegant ballrooms of Oxfordshire. Few mourn the dissolute young man - except his sister, the beautiful Lady Lydia Farrell. When her husband comes under suspicion of murder, she seeks expert help from Dr. Thomas Silkstone, a young anatomist from Philadelphia. Thomas arrived in England to study under its foremost surgeon, where his unconventional methods only add to his outsider status. Against his better judgment, he agrees to examine Lord Edward’s corpse.

    Story

    The story drags on and on and on with a pompous male telling the story.
    It seems as if the tellers voice is "more important" than the story.
    I just could not stand the English accent he used..he was so arrogant.

    S. J. Parris returns with the next Giordano Bruno mystery, set inside Queen Elizabeth's palace and steeped in period atmospherics and the strange workings of the occult. It is the year of the Great Conjunction, when the two most powerful planets, Jupiter and Saturn, align - an astrological phenomenon that occurs once every thousand years and heralds the death of one age and the dawn of another. The streets of London are abuzz with predictions of horrific events to come, possibly even the death of Queen Elizabeth.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    The best narration I have heard in 3 years of audiobooks. The humor is wonderful to me. I don't think there's much "mystery" in the story, but I did not mind.

    The Bodies Left Behind is an epic cat-and-mouse chase, told nearly in real-time, and is filled with Deaver's patented twists and turns, where nothing is what it seems, and death lingers just around the next curve on a deserted path deep in the midnight forest.

    the speaker voice is awful! His dialects are not too bad, but his British accent is just repulsive. the 1st chapter of this book is so boring - Creasey goes on and on and on about the main character (not the Detective, but the crook). Worse book of his I've heard
