    The dusty files of a venerable dictionary publisher, a hidden cache of coded clues, a story written by a phantom author, an unsolved murder in a gritty urban park: all collide memorably in Emily Arsenault's magnificent debut, at once a teasing literary puzzle, an ingenious suspense novel, and an exploration of definitions: of words, of who we are, and of the stories we choose to define us.

    Ed says: "Enjoyable Book with Great Characters"
    "Unexpectedly Clever"
    Overall

    This is an exceptionally engaging story that is set in the most unusual place - a dictionary publishing house. There is lots to be learned by listening to this book! The two lead characters, Billy and Mona, have a very unusual chemistry that, along with the setting make this a very good listen if you are patient. The narration was very good too. The plot unfolds slowly, but the development of the mystery is very clever!

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

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

    The story and setting are both great. The characters are compelling and interesting. Truly a great listen.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The performance was outstanding. The characters are brought to life in the narration. Listening rather than reading this book makes it special.


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

    Too long for that, but it was awfully hard to turn off.


    Any additional comments?

    For those familiar with Wyoming, or those that love the outdoors, this is a must listen. The characters and the setting make this a great choice.

    C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

    This is the beginning book in an impressive series about the life and times of a modern-day game warden. The story involves all the trappings of governmental bureaucracy, low pay for hard work, family dedication, and a good solid mystery. Joe Pickett is humble, honest, and a good thinker. If you like the rugged outdoors, you will enjoy this mystery.

    Would you listen to Savage Run again? Why?

    I almost never listen to a book more than once, but that is because there are only 24 hours in a day and so many books. I would listen to this one again in a few years.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was a bit of a stretch, but it was seldom dull.


    What about David Chandler???s performance did you like?

    I found the performance to be very good.


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

    With all the twists, there wasn't a particular point that moved me.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love the outdoors, like to hunt, fish, hike, or just enjoy the challenges of nature, you will enjoy this book if you like mysteries.
