    For the last decade, Nina Hazlitt has been ready to hear the worst about her daughter's disappearance. But with no sightings, no body, and no suspect, the police investigation ground to a halt long ago, and Nina's pleas to the cold case department have led her nowhere. Until she meets the newest member of the team: former Detective John Rebus. Rebus has never shied away from lost causes - one of the many ways he managed to antagonize his bosses when he was on the force. Now he's back as a retired civilian, reviewing abandoned files.

    I was so excited when I saw that Ian Rankin was resurrecting John Rebus. This one was as good as the previous series which were uniformly excellent. I love the descriptions of Scotland and it's people, the story itself, and the narration was excellent.

Rebus is back on the force, albeit with a demotion and a chip on his shoulder. He is investigating a car accident when news arrives that a case from 30 years ago is being reopened. Rebus's team from those days is suspected of helping a murderer escape justice to further their own ends.

    I think this is such an excellent series. I relate to the characters, the story moves at the right pace, and the city of Edinburgh comes to life. The narration was perfect. Thanks to Rankin and McPherson (and Audible ) for a very enjoyable experience.

    Selling rare books has its moments, but few are anything close to thrilling - except when Dido Hoare's scoundrel of an ex-husband suddenly reappears and puts a pulse of excitement in the air. But events go from interesting to intense when someone ends up murdered and the culprit seems to think Dido has something worth killing for, too. With the help of her father, Barnabas, a retired academic with a penchant for mysteries, Dido may be able to divert the killer long enough to figure out who wants her dead and why.

    Story

    Maybe it's me, or a glitch with the download, but this book has no ending, no resolution, no nothing. So I slog my way through, somewhat interested in the mystery and then suddenly it's over, with no real resolution of the mystery! Who did it? I'm tempted to ask for my money back.

    When Ravi Kapoor, an overworked London doctor, reaches the breaking point with his difficult father-in-law, he asks his wife: “Can’t we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away.” His prayer is seemingly answered when Ravi’s entrepreneurial cousin sets up a retirement home in India, hoping to re-create in Bangalore an elegant lost corner of England. Several retirees are enticed by the promise of indulgent living at a bargain price, but upon arriving, they are dismayed to find that restoration of the once sophisiticated hotel has stalled....

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    I am moved to write this, my first "review", because I loved the experience of listening to this book. The writing is beautiful, the story engrossing and the narrator is perfect. I didn't want it to end. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

  • Almost There: The Onward Journey of a Dublin Woman

    Almost There begins at that moment when Nuala O'Faolain's life began to change. It tells the story of a life in subtle, radical, and unforeseen renewal. It is a tale of good fortune chasing out bad - of an accidental harvest of happiness. But it is also a provocative examination of one woman's experience of the "crucible of middle age."

    Paula Beck says: "Honest & Endearing"
    "honesty and courage"

    I appreciate and admire so much the honesty and courage of this writer. I have read all of her previous books, and enjoyed all of them as much as this one. Her writing is lyrical, but also starkly realistic and emotionally accessible.
