    Story

    In February 1915, the Great War is still raging on the Western Front, but in Westminster, at the centre of Hardcastle's bailiwick, a policeman is shot dead. At first, Hardcastle believes the murderer to have been a disturbed burglar. But as enquiries continue, attention focuses on an antiquarian bookseller, a struggling artist, a reporter, officers of the Royal Flying Corps, both in England and in France, and the activities of Isabel Plowman, the wife of one of them and the lover of others.

    Would you try another book from Graham Ison and/or David Thorpe?

    I can't believe I kept on listening! Being an optimist I kept thinking the plot would get better! It was awful.

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

    What made the experience of listening to Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: A Signature Performance by Elijah Wood the most enjoyable?

    Elijah Wood's performance was fabulous. Really added life to the story.


    Which character – as performed by Elijah Wood – was your favorite?

    Elijah's subtle voice differences were not distracting as they sometimes can be with other readers. Excellent.

    Chicago cop Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels has chased and caught dozens of dangerous criminals over the course of her career. But she’s about to meet her match. When Jack wakes up in a storage locker, bound and gagged, she knows with chilling certainty who her abductor is. He’s called “Mr. K,” and more than two hundred homicides have been attributed to him. His victims have died in the most horrible ways imaginable; he is the essence of evil....

    Story
    If you could sum up Shaken in three words, what would they be?

    Like all the others, this Jack Daniels mystery has equal parts of intrigue and humor. More than once I had to back up the story because I'd been laughing too loud to hear.


    What does Angela Dawe and Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love Dick Hill's Chicago accents.
