    Flora Hansen calls herself a medium and makes a living by pretending to commune with the dead. But after a gruesome murder at a rural home for wayward girls, Hansen begins to suffer visions that are all too real. She calls the police claiming to have seen a ghost, but only one detective puts aside his skepticism long enough to listen: Joona Linna. Linna has spent more time at the scene of the crime than any other detective would.

    Story
    Where does The Fire Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I want the story to end, but then I don't. I liked this thriller very much. Mr. Kepler writes very well and keeps you interested. There is, however, some repetition in the story line that could have been done without. That is the only reason I gave it four stars instead of five.


    What other book might you compare The Fire Witness to and why?

    I'm loving all the Swedish and Danish detective series and I would compare to Jussi Adler, who I really like.


    What about Mark Bramhall’s performance did you like?

    the many characters, each with his/her own voice. And, he read at a very good pace.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Ken Follett
    • Narrated By John Lee

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    "Nice, but a trifle over-rated"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the story, and would have enjoyed it so much more had it not been quite so repetitive. I mean how many times do we have to go over everyone's life? If you are listening to a good story you want new information, not repetition.
