    Halina Shore is a Polish born forensic dentist living in Australia. When she travels to Poland to take part in the investigation of a war crime, she finds herself at the center of a bitter struggle in a community that has been divided by a grim legacy. As the investigation proceeds, her professional assignment becomes a confronting personal odyssey as the truth about her own past begins to emerge.

    Sara says: "A great listening experience"
    "Moving account of some terrible history"
    Overall

    While I agree that the age of the main character did not jive with the timeline, the storytelling was strong and moving.

    Fegan has been a "hard man" - an IRA killer in Northern Ireland. Now that peace has come, he is being haunted day and night by 12 ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, an RUC constable, and seven other of his innocent victims. In order to appease them, he's going to have to kill the men who gave him orders. As he's working his way down the list, he encounters a woman who may offer him redemption; she has borne a child to an RUC officer and is an outsider too.

    David P. McGivern says: "What an unexpected good read!"
    "Wins on both story and narration"
    Overall

    This is the best audiobook of the year. The story and the narrator are outstanding. I go through hundreds of audiobooks each year during my commute, and many plots and characters are predictable and repetitive. Ghosts is neither and Doyle makes for entertaining story telling.

  • Faithful Place: A Novel

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    Buffalogal says: "Incredible"
    "Exceptional"
    Overall

    Both the author and the narrator have outdone themselves. All of Tana French's novels have been outstanding, and this may be the best. Truly memorable.

    In South America a 96-year-old man of great wealth reads a book late one night and an hour later he lies dead in his bed, the secrets of his past starkly revealed. Six months later another mystery man lies dead at the bottom of his pool in a villa in Provence. This time, however, there's a witness at the scene: Shaw, the shadowy operative from The Whole Truth who barely escapes with his life.

    B. Bozeman says: "Disappointing"
    "One of his best yet!"
    Overall

    Baldacci delivers again and this one might be my favorite or at least one of them. The narration is also excellent.

    A master at combining heart-stopping suspense and scientific intrigue, New York Times best-selling author James Rollins returns with a thrilling adventure like no other--a shocking story of cruel genetic experiments done in the name of national security and, most disturbing of all, tied to a secret history of the Book of Genesis.

    Dawitski says: "Very Enjoyable"
    "Great book, terrible narrator"
    Overall

    This was a good action story that I wish I had read rather than heard. The narrator should never have attempted to speak with Cajun or Arabic accents - terrible. She gives the female character a voice that sounds hysterical and juvenile, which is at odds with her acclaimed veterinarian and genetic education. I will not purchase future books read by the narrator although I will purchase Rollins' books read by other narrators.

    Rodney Williams's disappearance seems typical to Chief Inspector Wexford - a simple case of a man running off with a woman other than his wife. But when another woman reports that her husband is missing, the case turns unpleasantly complex.

    Marilyn says: "Brilliantly written and very entertaining"
    "Great plot"
    Overall

    This is an excellent summer listen.
