    From London to Cornwall, then to Italy and France, a short, shabby priest takes on bandits, traitors, and killers. Why is he so successful? The reason is that, after years spent in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. Thus he understands criminal motivation and how to deal with it.

    Welcome to the Belladonna Arms, a rundown little apartment building perched atop a hill in downtown San Diego, home to the city's lost and lovelorn. Shy archaeology student Stanley Sternbaum has just moved in and fills his time quietly observing his eccentric neighbors, avoiding his hellion mother, and trying his best to go unnoticed... which proves to be a problem when it comes to fellow tenant Roger Jane.

    What did you love best about Serenading Stanley?

    For a gay romance novel, this little tale is not devoid of charm. The oddball setting and the likability of the characters, combined with decent writing peppered with erotica plus an occasional sprinkling of true wit render it disarmingly appealing. I found myself rather touched.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "Extremely well written."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Excellent detective novel. Highly literate and thoroughly engaging.

    Fascinating plot & appealing protagonists.


    Any additional comments?

    Somewhere in the course of 7 Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowing learned how to wright. This is a first class mystery novel that compares favorably to the works of P.D. James.
