    The first of Ngaio Marsh's 32 acclaimed mystery novels, this introduces the continuing detective protagonist, Sir Roderick Alleyn of Scotland Yard. Five guests gather at Sir Hubert Handesley's country house party for the amusing parlor game of "Murder". But they aren't laughing when the lights come up on an actual corpse: the handsome and mysterious Charles Rankin with a dagger in his back.

    W. S. says: "Not the place to start with Ngaio Marsh"
    "Entertaining, relatively light murder mystery"

    Story

    I had seen the TV version first, so that affected my involvement in the story. Still, it was diverting to listen to while I did some sewing.

    The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

    Susan says: "Fun, thought-provoking, mysterious.... and FUN !"

    My dad recommended this to me. It was a fun mix of spoofing the tech world, but still enjoying it.

    Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. And on the Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it's wasted (like the underwater; how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there's never enough time.

    Glen Phipps says: "A welcome re-recording."
    "refreshing satire"

    Story

    I was constantly laughing. He skewers everything with comedic honesty. I much prefer to hear his books read out loud.
