    Wexford had every reason to remember the Painter case - it was the first murder he'd ever handled on his own. There had been no doubts about the case, until now. Someone wants the case reopened, and they want Wexford proved wrong.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A New Lease of Death to be better than the print version?

    Often, audio doesn't compare to print. But this is quite excellent.


    What other book might you compare A New Lease of Death to and why?

    This book is in line with Rendell's other Wexford novels, because her characterization, especially of younger people, is well developed. That is to say, she masters all aspects of human nature. She illustrates that the "formative years" really form the individual.


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

    He brings refined poise to the work. It is a joy to listen to him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At times, the end of a Rendell novel is brutal, but I enjoyed the end of this novel.


    Any additional comments?

    An enjoyable experience!

  • Death on the Nile: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

    The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything ... until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: 'I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting, nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

    Where does Death on the Nile rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    By far, the best audiobook that I have experienced. Christie's brilliant and intricate analysis of human nature, coupled with Suchet's embodiment of Poirot,make this audio experence a must have. It's my new favorite!


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

    Yes, I couldn't put it down!
