    When a local woman tells Sergeant Hamish Macbeth that she doesn't remember what happened the previous evening, he doesn't begin to worry. She had been out drinking, after all, and he'd prefer not to be bothered with such an arrogant and annoying woman. But when her body is discovered, Hamish is forced to investigate a crime that the only known witness - now dead - had forgotten.

    Sharron says: "Like visiting an old friend"
    "Outstanding, as usual."

    Story
    What did you love best about Death of Yesterday?

    Once again, Beaton has written a clever and tangled mystery. But the ever clever Hamish figures it all out, much to the anger of his superiors. Now if he could just get his love life on the right track. Too bad they don't go for bigamy in the Highlands, or maybe it should be a same sex union.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Death of Yesterday?

    The revelation that he most beautiful Hannah was all falsies.


    What about Graeme Malcolm’s performance did you like?

    His character were clear and his accents were wonderful.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Hamish does it again!


    Any additional comments?

    They need to bring back the BBC series.

    Best-selling author C. J. Box—an Anthony and Macavity Award winner—earned starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Booklist for this exceptional mystery. Taking advantage of a legal loophole, a lawyer kills four people in Yellowstone National Park and walks away a free man. As the public outcry intensifies, the governor hires former game warden Joe Pickett to conduct a private investigation.

    David says: "A very fun read!"
    "I want to go to Yellowstone!"

  • Excalibur

    If Arthur existed then he was probably the great British war leader who won the battle of Mount Badon. No one knows where it was fought, or how it was fought, but we do know that the battle took place and it was the one great defeat inflicted on the English invaders of Britain. In Excalibur we follow Arthur and Derfel to that enormous struggle and incredible victory.

    G.Monie says: "The best of the trilogy, makes up for the rest"
    "A wonderful new take or twist on the tale of King."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story of Arthur is probably the most realistic story on this subject I have ever read, and believe me, I have read A LOT of novels and history on this subject and these characters.
    The characters came alive.


    What other book might you compare Excalibur to and why?

    Better than Mary Stewarts series.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Pigott-Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Pigott- Smith is an actor not just a narrator. His characterizations are not contrived or overdone. Just enough inflection and tone and accent to make them distinguishable. He was great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of the little girl.


    Any additional comments?

    Glad I did not discover the series as it was being written. We listened to the entire series in a week and did not have to wait for the next book.

    Young Nicholas Hook is dogged by a curse, haunted by what he has failed to do and banished for what he has done. A wanted man in England, he is driven to fight as a mercenary archer in France, where he finds two things he can love: his instincts as a fighting man, and a girl in trouble. Together they survive the notorious massacre at Soissons, an event that shocks all Christendom. With no options left, Hook heads home to England, where his capture means certain death.

    Andrew says: "Fantastic!"
    "Absolutely riveting ."

    Good stand alone. Most of the Cornwell books are in a series.
