  • Still Life with Crows

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child
    • Narrated By Rene Auberjonois

    Medicine Creek, Kansas, has been slowly dying for the last century. In a town where nothing changes, the community is terrified after a series of grisly murders takes place. Even more alarming, the bodies are displayed in bizarre tableaus. With the entire town in shock, FBI Agent Pendergast arrives from New Orleans to investigate. From the fields to the local caves, Pendergast discovers the remnants of a Prohibition-era moonshine operation and the truth behind one of the town's greatest mysteries.

    "So Exciting! Like watching a film!"

    This book is sooooo gripping. I loved Cabinet of Curiosities and because the previous reviewer mentioned Special Agent Pendergast was in this book too, I decided to download it. I wasn't disapointed - it was even better than Cabinet of Curiosities! I am now firmly in love with Agent Pendergast and just itching for more.

    The atmospheric music was brilliant, as was the ending.

    The narrator is especially good - able to create seperate voices for each character in an exceptionaly talented way.

    I have downloaded lots of books from Audible and this one will go down as one of my all time favorites. A ripping yarn, scary, atmospheric, gripping and delicious.

  • The Treatment

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 40 mins)
    • By Mo Hayder
    • Narrated By Damien Goodwin

    In an unassuming house, on a quiet residential street in south London, a husband and wife are discovered, imprisoned in their own home. Badly dehydrated, they've been bound and beaten; worse still, their young son is missing.

    Hallie says: "Continuation of Birdman"
    "Gritty, Horrific, Disturbing - un-put-downable!!!!"

    Wow - Mo Hayder does it again! If you've not listened to any of Mo Hayder's books - start with Birdman - then get this. Not for the squeemish, but the characters and the story really hold you gripped in the tension.

    The narrator does a wonderful, wonderful job.

    This is gritty, modern british detective fiction of the highest calibre. Can't wait till Audible gets her next book.

  • The Talisman

    • UNABRIDGED (28 hrs)
    • By Stephen King, Peter Straub
    • Narrated By Frank Muller
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    Swad says: "Still Good"
    "Jarring, irritating narration."

    After listening to my first Stephen King novel - Bag of Bones - and being completely bowled over by it, I couldn't wait to listen to this one.

    What a complete waste of money!

    The story is probably great, but Frank Muller's narration is so awful and irritating that I simply cannot listen anymore. I will be very careful to avoid this narrator in my future purchases on audible. This is a pity because he narrates quite a lot of titles that I would have liked to have listened to. But once bitten - twice shy!

  • Psychopath: A Novel

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Keith Ablow
    • Narrated By Keith Ablow

    Forensic Psychiatrist Frank Clevenger confronts the ultimate opponent - a serial killer who is also a brilliant psychiatrist, with an uncanny ability to burrow into the deepest recesses of the human mind.

    Venice says: "This book is ACE!"
    "This book is ACE!"

    I loved this book! A great psychological thriller. There are few books I can think of where the reader is invited to identify with the bad guy as well as with the good guy.It made me look at the nature of good and evil in a new and enlightening way.

    The narrator who is also the author does a fantastic job. I only wish more authors would narrate their own books. My only gripe is that it was abridged. I much prefer unabridged books, and I didn't want this one to end.

    This book drew me in and had me so hooked that I ended up listening to it in one complete session! Wonderfull!
