    It all sounds simple enough as Phryne sets new investigations into motion. But when greed and fear are the motivating factors, people become ruthless and Phyrne quickly finds herself enmeshed in blackmail, secrets, lies and the dangerous influences of deep magic.

    Would you listen to Death Before Wicket again? Why?

    A light amusing adventure mystery, well researched background both era and subject. Characterization is nicely done and the Reader is a pleasure to listen to. Phryne (and Dot) are a delight to meet.


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

    Yes

    Russell Walker retreats from the shock of his wife's death by becoming a hermit in the woods of British Columbia. There he finds himself thrust into a precarious role as intermediary between a telepath called Smelly, so sensitive he can't stand to be near most people, and Constable Hilda, a skeptical police officer who needs Smelly's insight to track down a monstrous serial killer.

    Native Texan says: "It's a good listen BUT..."
    "Disappointing, self indulgent violemce."

    Right before the wise old wizard Drum Billet died, he passed on his magical staff of power to the newborn eighth son of an eighth son. Unfortunately, Drum Billet never bothered to check the gender of the newborn baby, and it turns out it was a girl. Now his chauvinistic colleagues are forced to deal with a young girl who has all the qualifications to join their all-male profession.

    Would you listen to Equal Rites again? Why?

    Reader has a pleasant voice BUT is just SO NOT right for Discworld. Her interpretation of Granny Weatherwax just doesn't fit the character. Very disappointing.
