    By the time Shakespeare came to write Macbeth - almost certainly in 1605/1606 - he had already completed three of the great tragedies with which modern audiences are so familiar: Hamlet (1601), Othello (1603), and King Lear (1605). Each of those plays gives us an eponymous hero who is in some significant way flawed, but for whom we also inevitably feel deep sympathy, whatever his errors or crimes. But in MacBeth, Shakespeare has chosen for his tragic hero a man guilty of the most terrible crime imaginable to a Jacobean audience, that of regicide - the murder of a king.

    "good reading"
    Overall

    I chose this version because I thought it would be just a reading no a performance since it was not marked that way. One of the witches was completely obscured by what sounded like they recorded it in a parking garage. background noises are distracting more so then helpfully in an audio presentation.

    In the rural parishes of Louisiana's French Triangle, young women are disappearing one by one, only to turn up on the banks of the bayou, strangled and cast aside where they are sure to be found. But there is one trophy the killer prizes above all others, one woman who must be silenced forever.... Attorney Laurel Chandler did not come back to Bayou Breaux to seek justice. That once-burning obsession had destroyed her credibility, her career, her marriage - and nearly her sanity. But when a ruthless predator strikes too close to home, she's lured into a perverse game from which there may be no escape.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The biggest mystery and suspense with this book was wondering when the mystery and suspense was going to start,


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It is a good story, just not was I expected from this author. More like a romance mystery...
