    The Gods of Mars begins with John Carter's arrival back on Barsoom (Mars) after a 10-year hiatus, separated from his wife Dejah Thoris, his unborn child, and the Red Martian people of the nation of Helium, whom he has adopted as his own. Unfortunately, Carter materializes in the one place on Barsoom from which nobody is allowed to depart: the Valley Dor, which is the Barsoomian afterlife.

    What would have made The Gods of Mars better?

    It feels like the narrator, Peter Delloro, is yelling at you the whole time, or at least talking very loudly. There is no fluctuation in his voice. Every word is at the same volume level and I couldn't make it through the first chapter. Try one of the other narrators for this same book so that you can have a better listening experience.

    It is the summer of 1950 and a series of inexplicable events has struck Buckshaw, the decaying English mansion that Flavia's family calls home. A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath. For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw.

    Story

    Great book with interesting and fun characters. Flavia, a 10 year old self taught chemist works to solve the murder her father has confessed too. With sisterly angst and the family faithful retainer reliving the war inside his head, Flavia has a lot to traverse to get the answers to her clues. She may be a little too smart for her own good.

    Often compared to both Ruth Rendell and P.D. James, Deborah Crombie is internationally acclaimed for her deftly written mysteries that combine suspense, with lyrical prose. Sharply etched characters further enrich this story of tangled relationships and dark secrets. Twelve years after their divorce, Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid receives a phone call from his ex-wife Victoria asking for his help.

    Story

    I have really enjoyed this series until this one. There is a lot of poetry by Rupert Brooke and I know I should have enjoyed it but I found it a mostly boring story. I love the characters & will continue on.
