    Detective Frank Janek investigates a bizarre double murder in which the killer had decapitated the victims - a call girl and a teacher - at an exclusive private school - and switched their heads.

    Kudos to Jeffrey Kafer for his superb reading! He captures perfectly the rueful middle-aged angst of my character, Frank Janek, as he goes about solving his greatest case. I'm hopeful that Mr. Kafer's will be reading the other two more books in my Janek series, "Wallflower" and "Mirror Maze" for Audible.

    It begins in Bar Harbor, Maine, summer playground of the rich. Shy and sensitive Penny Berring watches as her beautiful sister, Suzie, puts on a bizarre display- flaunting her transgressions beneath her parent's windows. Her behavior is strange and compelling, and then...a scream in the night, and Suzie is murdered. There is a sensational, inconclusive trial. And an enigma: What really happened? Who killed Suzie, and why? Three years pass. Penny is now living a quiet life in New York. Then it all starts again. She finds Suzie's secret diary. It propels her on a strange, surreal oddyssey of her own, and on toward a horrifying secret.

    Story

    Kathy Bell Denton really "kills" it here... in the best sense. She takes a wild and fairly decadent crime novel (some might even call this one "perverse") and turns it into compelling listening. Her tone reminded me a little of Jane Fonda's -- privileged, educated, perfect for this story.

    One hot summer afternoon a quarter century ago, a wealthy socialite and her young lover, a private school teacher, were gunned down in a cheap hotel room on the outskirts of the Midwestern city of Calista. Now, forensic sketch artist David Weiss has returned to his hometown to cover a routine celebrity murder trial for ABC. For someone who has earned a reputation for cracking high-profile cases with his portraits of suspects based on eyewtiness accounts, chruning out courtroom sketches is merely pedestrian work.

    Story

    Dan Bernard does a great job bringing this fascinating novel to life. The story is complex, even serpentine, with numerous characters. Bernard makes it work. For lovers of psychological crime fiction at its best, this audio is highly recommended recommended.

    It begins when the strangely marked body of a young prostitute is found just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. A similarly disfigured corpse of an American nun turns up. Then an Arab boy. As the list of victims grows, their only apparent connection is the bizarre markings on their bodies, it appears that Israel is facing its first serial murder case.

    Story

    I'm the author of this novel, so of course I'm prejudiced. But I have to say that Mr. Hill's dramatic reading was a revelation! I am incredibly grateful to him for his magnificent narration, complete with accents, wonderful pauses, and totally compelling story-line. He makes my words sound better than I remember. Best of all, he makes this novel, of which I am quite proud, come alive! Thank you, Dick Hill!
