    There's a body in a trunk; a dead girl's reflection is caught in a mirror; and one corpse is back from the grave, while another is envisioned in the recurring nightmare of a terrified eccentric. What's behind such ghastly misdeeds? Try money, revenge, passion, and pleasure. With multiple motives, multiple victims, and multiple suspects, it's going to take a multitude of talent to solve these clever crimes. In this inviting collection, Agatha Christie enlists the services of her finest - Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and Parker Pyne.

    No one liked CC de Poitiers - certainly none of the residents of the village of Three Pines, each of whom CC had managed to offend. Therein lies the challenge for the Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Quebec, called in once again from Montreal to investigate murder in this hamlet. CC has been killed in an apparent electrical accident, and everyone in town has a motive, even the inspector's good friends.

    Patricia says: "Complex, but worthwhile...."
    "Fantastic in every respect!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Fatal Grace to be better than the print version?

    The narrator is great. This is a performance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Fatal Grace?

    The final scene was great. It was summed up well, there were no disappointing deaths, just perfect.


    What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's an amazing narrator. I would buy a book just for his voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Plot within plot.

    Kidwella Castle in northern Wales is rumored to be haunted by a deadly ghost - the Grim Widow, who allegedly drowns unsuspecting guests in the castle’s moat. Not long after M. J. and her crew arrive at the castle to film their ghost-hunting cable TV show, Ghoul Getters, two new victims are added to the Widow’s grisly roster. Fear ripples through the castle, especially when it’s discovered that the victims may have had help into their watery graves from the land of the living.

    JEAN says: "love the series butttt Gilly has to grow up or go"

    Story
    What would have made What a Ghoul Wants better?

    The premise of the story is fine but the author doesn't seem to have any concept of natural human reactions. Consequently, every character is someone you want to be killed in the story. Rather than being 'in the story' while listening, I was irritated by stupid dialogue and plot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Victoria Laurie again?

    No.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Eileen Stevens?

    Yes. I didn't care a lot for the male characters but her voice quality is good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    irritation and disappointment

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."
    "Interesting"

    No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won an Anthony Award for her one-of-a-kind Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. Sookie, a Louisiana cocktail waitress, skilled telepath, and friend to vampires, has a dedicated fan base that grows larger every day.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead as a Doornail to be better than the print version?

    no


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

    Sookie


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It would have been good to hear it in one sitting but it's too long for that (or I have limited time for that); this is because it is suspenseful.
