    Humans call them Monument-Makers. An unknown race, they left stunning alien statues scattered on distant planets throughout the galaxy, encoded with strange inscriptions that defy translation. Searching for clues about the Monument-Makers, teams of 23rd century linguists, historians, engineers and archaeologists have been excavating the enigmatic alien ruins on a number of planets, uncovering strange, massive false cities made of solid rock. But their time is running out.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Conceptually intriguing, but uneven writing style"
    "Terrible Narrator, Weak Story"
    Overall

    I regret I did not read the reviews, worst purchase yet. Should rate with a zero. The readers low scratchy voice was very difficult to listen to for any length of time.

    That a man who caught murderers should be a successful poet seemed inappropriate to some people. But Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh of the Criminal Investigation Department was attending his publisher's annual sherry party when a call from Scotland Yard whipped him away to investigate a particularly brutal murder. In the elegant Steen Psychiatric Clinic, which catered strictly for upper-class neuroses, sprawled the body of Enid Bolam, a chisel through her heart. It had been a vicious, calculated thrust, suggesting that the killer had not only confident knowledge of anatomy but unusual strength.

    David Hurwitz says: "Bad sound, good story"
    "A Mind to Murder by P D James"
    Overall

    This audiblebook has been most difficult to listen to, as the reader appears to be rushing in his reading, and the sound quality is horrible. If this becomes available with perhaps Michael Jayston reading, I shall certainly repurchase it so as to be able to hear and listen comfortably.
