    A cop has been shot - cold-bloodedly gunned down while trying to prevent a holdup. Regulations say the investigation is to be handled like any other homicide. But when a cop is killed in the line of duty, it is different. And the brotherhood in blue will stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice.

    Story

    Griffin AKA Butterworth is well known for his war stories. However, he hits a home run with this COP book. It is set within the Philadelphia Police Department. Griffin does a great job of explaining how the Police feel when one of their own is taken. However, he also shows how the family can be affected as well the public. He adds in a little Romance to go along with the Mystery and he has another book that I could not seem to put down once I started it. As a retired Police Officer/Deputy Sheriff from a small town/county in another state, I feel he must have put in some time in law enforcement to have done such a fantastic job.

    Story

    I purchased this audible book for my 8,6, and 4 year old grandchildren and I to listen to on a long trip. They loved it! I had to keep checking to see if they were asleep because they were so quiet. I learned just how interested they were when I turned the book off during heavy traffic, so I could concentrate more on my driving. They began playing, quarreling, and doing all the things they normally would do had we not been listening to the book. As soon as we returned to the car after a stop, they were all telling me to turn their book back on.
    The reader did a awesome job of changing voices with the characters. She really made it seem as if we were seeing the performance in person with lots of different actors.

    Although the book was originally written for young teens or pre-teens even before I was born, it was still enjoyable for an old lady of 60 like me as well as my grandchildren. I would definitely recommend it to others.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Sign of The Twisted Candle again? Why?

    My granddaughters are 4 and 6 and my nephew is 8. We listened to this book in the car. They could not wait to get in the car and listen to their book. For those of you who have traveled long distances with young children, you know it can be quite challenging at times. However, with a good book to listen to, the trips are now a breeze. Nancy Drew provided suspense, but was written on a level that they could understand, but kept me interested as well. Often, there were teachable moments, too. They did not realize that when these books were written, there were no cell phones. This gave me an opportunity for a little history. The four year old was not quite as interested but she stayed quiet anyway. This book allowed the kids to use their imaginations, too. Also, Nancy is a kind and caring person. There is a moral to the story--and the bad guys always get caught. There is no killing or any of that gory stuff either. Like I said, the perfect story for younger children !!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hannah is my favorite character. She is only the Drew housekeeper. She has helped to raise Nancy since she was 4 years old and loves her like a daughter. Although the book never says this, it is obvious from her concern for Nancy.


    What does Danica Reese bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The change in voices gives each character an individuality and makes the story much easier to follow then if it was just read. It makes the book much more fun and interesting!
