    Story
    (265)

    On the way to see a client, Maisie Dobbs witnesses a man commit suicide on a busy London street. The following day, the prime minister's office receives a letter threatening a massive loss of life if certain demands are not met - and the writer mentions Maisie by name. After being questioned and cleared by Detective Chief Superintendent Robert MacFarlane of Scotland Yard's elite Special Branch, she is drawn into MacFarlane's personal fiefdom as a special adviser on the case.

    Peter says: "Maisie Dobbs Series - Fabulous"
    "Maisie Dobbs Series - Fabulous"
    Overall

    The series is excellent. If you are a fan of social history (post WWI England, women's history, Depression Era) in a fictional setting, Winspears books are very well researched, without being teachy or preachy. The reader has a pleasant manner, with voices well differentiated.

    Leading Russian journalist Andrey Kolesnikov writes about President Putin and his relationship with the Russian people. This collection of his articles is the most popular political book in Russia.

    Peter says: "The book is in Russian, which is outrageous !"

    In the wild days of Leo Waterman's youth, Heck Sundstrom was a god. But things haven't been going great for him. Heck's son & daughter-in-law, Allison were killed in a boating accident. But Waterman's not so sure Allison went down with the ship.

    M. Keller says: "Good entry in the series"
    "Glad to see Leo's on audio......"
    Overall

    Love all the Leo Waterman books - would like to see them all on audio. Reader is good but the mispronunciation of Washington State place names and even ordinary words is a bit jarring....expect that will be corrected in the next books?

  • Muletrain to Maggody

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 58 mins)

    Story

    As police chief of Maggody, a sleepy Arkansas town, Arly Hanks lives a pretty quiet life. Her tranquility is shattered, however, when a movie crew moves in to film a Civil War documentary. Soon, Arly is dealing with rumors of lost Confederate gold, rabid Civil War reenactors, and some very suspicious deaths.

    Houston mom says: "Sophomoric"
    "Love the author, series, and book"
    Overall

    Would love to see all the Magoody series on audio books. However, this reader seems to slow the pace of the book and the voices are 'off' - and they sound so much alike generally, that it is difficult at times to know who is speaking. If you sit and listen, the reader is probably fine, but if you are doing something else that at times requires your attention, the similar voices makes it difficult to follow along. Still worthwhile, though, as Joan Hess is very funny.
