    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    What did you love best about Broken Harbor?

    I haven't stayed up late to finish anything in years, but this story had me in its grip. I've always been impressed with Tana French's ability to create an an almost tangible atmosphere and characters who are so fleshed out they seem like real people. I actually miss them when the book has ended.
    There is more to the story than just solving the crime. It is almost like a psychological study of all the characters involved, including the policemen. But it is a good mystery, too. I didn't figure out 'who did it and why' until it was revealed and then it all made perfect sense. I've read and enjoyed all French's books, but IMO this is the best, so far.
    The narrator added to the haunting quality of the book by performing it in an Irish accent. I assume he is a native of Ireland, but if not, he was convincing enough to me to add another layer of atmosphere to the experience of listening to this psychological "whodunit".


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Harbor?

    When the killer is revealed. If I were more specific, it would be a "spoiler"


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Hogan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will in the future.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Be careful what you wish for.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the way the book ended. It ended the way traumatic experiences in life really do end: with raw edges to be healed. Now I want to know what happens to all the characters in the future.

    Savor one of the most clever of Christie's suspenseful classics. An American businessman is stabbed to death aboard a luxury train, the Orient Express, snowbound in the middle of Europe. Nothing escapes the eagle eye and quick intelligence of the great Hercule Poirot, and clues abound. Sorting through a dozen perfectly respectable passengers, all suspects, Poirot is tenacious in his pursuit of the truth.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on the Orient Express to be better than the print version?

    Having seen many productions of this tale by Agatha Christie, I was thorougly familiar with the story, so there were no surprises for me in the clever plot. Even so, I throrougly enjoyed listening to this audio version. It was great fun to hear David Suchet give life to all the many characters involved in the story. Quite a feat! Some of the women characters' voices were a bit of a stretch, but for me it just added to the fun.


    What other book might you compare Murder on the Orient Express to and why?

    I look forward to listening to more of Agatha Christies' Poirot series read by Suchet who, in case you have missed it, plays Poirot to a
