    Georgie, aka Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, cousin of King George V of England, is penniless and trying to survive on her own as an ordinary person in London in 1932. So far she has managed to light a fire and boil an egg... She's gate-crashed a wedding... She's making money by secretly cleaning houses... And she's been asked to spy for Her Majesty the Queen.

    Overall

    I have been a fan of British everything for as long as I can remember. I am so glad that I found this great set of books. As I read/listen to this story I find myself imagining Georgie, aka Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie being play by that great British actress Penelope Keith, from the BBC1 sitcom “To the Manor Born.” I can't wait to get into the next installment of this fantastic series. Bravo to Rhys Bowen for her wit, style and elegance in showing us that to whatever station we may find ourselves in we are all people at heart.

  • Soulless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 52 mins)

    Story
    (2081)

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    "Good Show"
    Overall

    At first I did not think I was going to enjoy this book. But within the first 15 to 20 minutes I was hooked. Alexia Tarabotti the prim and proper lady of the book handles herself with dignity and resolve. This high Class offering changes the genre completely and is anything but “Dead Common.” I find the way the author weaves 19th England with the idea of vampires and werewolves pure genius. I can’t wait to hear what Alexia is up to next…

    Story

    A stunningly brilliant psychopathic killer who has skillfully eluded the police from London to Paris to New York. A beautiful woman journalist suddenly in grave danger. An unorthodox New York detective whose motive for stopping the killer couldn't be more personal or emotional. With his latest release, the best selling author of When the Wind Blows and Cat and Mouse, turns 1999 into the Summer of St. Germain. You'll listen in terror as New York Cop John Stefanovich pursues Alexandre St. Germain, the most deadly and powerful member of the secret society of criminals known as the Midnight Club.

    "Great Narration"
    Overall

    This was an excellent book and unlike others the narrator is one of the best for this type of genre. Forsters narration puts me in mind of the Sam Spade type novel/movies which are my all time favorites and i wish he would do more. Patterson is true to form and holds the story together quite well.

    Overall

    As you read this review please understand that as a whole I believe The Retrieval Artist Series is one of the best that I have found in a long time. As a long time sci-fi nut and retired police officer I found that I could relate to the characters very well. I even found myself bring up suggestions as Noel and Miles did their thing. I could not wait for the next audiobook to come out. Unfortunately for me the Recovery Man left me hanging. I really did not get a true since that the story ended. All of the bad guys were taken care of in true Kristine fashion but the bringing together of the 2 main characters toward then end could have been smoother.

  • T Is for Trespass: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 29 mins)

    Story
    (174)

    In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton's T Is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private caregiving jobs.

    Brian says: "Not much of a thriller!"
    "First Rate"
    Overall

    This is one of the best yet. I like the "seeing" through the eyes of the bad guy so to speak. The build up of how the criminal mind works and reasons is first rate.
