    In Three Stations, Arkady Renko’s skills are put to their most severe test. Though he has been technically suspended from the prosecutor’s office for once again turning up unpleasant truths, he strives to solve a last case: the death of an elegant young woman whose body is found in a construction trailer on the perimeter of Moscow’s main rail hub. It looks like a simple drug overdose to everyone—except to Renko, whose examination of the crime scene turns up some inexplicable clues.

    Story

    Unfortunately, this book in the Arkady Renko series by Martin Cruz Smith, doesn't hit the audible book mark. I was fortunate enough to have read this book, so when I bought it, I was looking forward to a great listen. Not so. Personally, I really didn't like the reader of the book. His flat delivery and slow cadence had me turning it off within 10 minutes. I jumped ahead to see if the reading got better, it did not.

    I recommend you buy the book (and the entire, wonderful series). Skip the audio version-not worth the money or credit.

  • The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language

    This is the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. The Adventure of English is not only an enthralling story of power, religion, and trade, but also the story of people, and how their lives continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

    Story

    Melvyn Bragg has done a wonderful job telling the story of the English language. From its beginnings in Sanskrit (who knew?!) through the development of "Singlish" (Singaporean English), he brings to light facinating information about words, phrases, and terms developed by English-speaking cultures around the world. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in language.

    Twenty-something Harper Connelly has a gift. After being struck by lighting as a child, she discovered an eerie ability to locate the deceased. In Memphis, skeptical Professor Nunley wants her to demonstrate that skill at an ancient cemetery. There, Harper stands atop a grave and says there are two bodies entombed: one centuries old, but the other, a young girl named Tabitha.

    Story

    This book is an easy listen. Harper Connelly our protagonist and her step-brother, Tolliver Lang work together to communicate with the dearly departed.

    After being hired by a college professor, who hopes to expose her as a fraud, to read very old graves in a graveyard in Memphis, Harper finds a much newer corpse in one of the graves. The corpse is of a young girl Harper had been hired to find a year and a half before when the child went missing in Nashville.

    The plot twists and turns with many likely suspects, and some not-so-likely. The characters are fleshed out and interesting,

    Charlaine Harris's series keeps you tuned in and listening. The "gift" that Harper Connelly possesses is unique and opens up the imagination about what it would be like to communicate with people we have known or mysterious deaths that haven't been solved.

    Sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy.
