    Twenty-two-year-old Imogene Duckworthy has been waiting tables at Huey's Hash in tiny Saltlick, TX, itching to jump out of her rut and become a detective. When Uncle Huey is found murdered in his own diner, a half-frozen package of mesquite-smoked sausage stuffed down his throat, Immy, an unwed mother who has always longed to be a PI, gets her chance to solve a real crime.

    Story

    I enjoyed the basic story here. It was fun. Pretty good low-key mystery.

    What I loved, though, was Veronica Newton's narration. She brings Imogene to life, capturing her wonderful sort of naive pluck, and does a terrific job with the rest of the cast of characters, handling the voices and timbers with skill and confidence. I never lost rack of who was speaking.

    A delightful read.

    An angel of Death in Los Angeles. A sociopath kills a young boy, a quiet teen, and then an entire family before turning his attention upon Pavel Trusnik, an elderly shut-in from across the street. Loneliness can drive a normal man to madness, and Pavel is not a normal man. After committing a crime that leaves him shunned and isolated, Pavel has only the fading memories of his tragically flawed life, and his one great love. When the violent sociopath sets his murderous desires upon Pavel, only an ancient order that knows Pavel's secrets can intervene. But for the isolated old man, the vicious intruder is the only company he has had in decades….

    Story

    While the novel itself has its good and not-so-good elements,William Salyers narration is a real treat. He has a true gift for voices. Even in crowd scenes he delivers distinctly different timbres and accents without becoming "actor-y" at any time, and without overpowering the writer's words. The whole is handled with grace and aplomb. All in all, a fine actor struttin' his considerable stuff.
