    In lower Manhattan, a charnel pit of horror is uncovered: the remains of 36 people murdered and gruesomely dismembered over 130 years ago by an unknown serial killer. Just as a museum archaeologist and an enigmatic FBI agent begin to unravel the clues to the killings, a fresh spree of copy-cat murders and surgical mutilation erupts around them. Mixing science and terror in a way only they can, Preston and Child deliver a novel that's as gruesome as it is enthralling.

    I hate to read books. You can't do anything but keep you head in a fixed position and generally keep still. Now I can do mundane stuff and enjoy a good book on audio.
    I've been listening to a few audio books on tape and enjoyed them. But this (MP3 on an IPOD) is the best so far. It's like a modern day American version of Sherlock Holmes with more action. Rene, the narrator, is wonderful in the many voices that he uses for the dialog of the characters and his elocution is first rate. It's like listening to a good radio drama (I know that I'm aging myself). The best thing is that you can turn it off and listen to the rest later and not miss the rest of the story.

    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.

    Cabinets of Curiosities was my first P&C audio book ever. I was hooked. When I started "Still Life with Crows", I thought "Huh?". It was so different than I expected. I didn't think that I would like it. But it was just as good.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Story

    I listened to this book over 2 years ago while on vacation in florida in the winter. It was so good that I limited myself to listening to it on my early morning walks on the beach. It still ranks as munber one in my list of audiobooks (I listen to about 1 a week). I thought that it was an autobiography until early into the second part. Maybe it was because the voice was that of the author and the book is written in the first person.
