    Story

    Inspector Appleby is called to St Anthony's College, where the president has been murdered in his lodging. Scandal abounds when it becomes clear that the only people with any motive to murder him are the only people who had the opportunity - because the President's Lodging opens off Orchard Ground, which is locked at night, and only the Fellows of the College have keys.

    Clarice Borio says: "Tedious Muddle"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not--very hard to follow all the characters in audio format. I haven't reached the end of the first download and I still don't know any of the secondary characters.


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    I think his accents are incredible--I loved his narration of Broken Harbor.

    (2106)

    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    Story
    (550)

    When the Lusitania sank, more than one 1,000 people died. One passenger, however, survived to become a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief but keeping a small silver statue that would become a family heirloom to future generations. Now, nearly a century later, that heirloom, one of a priceless, long-separated set of three, has been snatched away from the Sullivans.

    What made the experience of listening to Three Fates the most enjoyable?

    Like all of Nora's book, you really believe the relationship between the lead figures. She's very good about groupings of three.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Cruella DeVille character :)


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

    Yes! I buy them for the gym, then find myself listening in the car and at home, while preparing dinner!

    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    Nell


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

    Not necessarily


    Any additional comments?

    Do the narrators have any latitude in leaving out the 'he saids' and 'she saids'---those were somewhat tedious to listen to.
