    Charlie Howard - globe-trotting mystery writer, professional thief, and poor decision maker - is in Paris. Flush with the success of his latest book reading, Charlie agrees to show a complete novice how to break into an apartment in the Marais. Fast-forward twenty-four hours and Charlie's hired to steal an ordinary-looking oil painting - from the exact same address. Mere coincidence? Charlie figures there's no harm in finding out - until a dead body turns up in his living room and he finds himself evading the law while becoming caught up in a quite outrageous heist.

    Janels says: "Entertaining, witty, AND a good mystery!"
    "light fun with great performance"

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By Christopher Moore
    • Narrated By Fisher Stevens

    Story

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Hope says: "A Worthy Book, indeed"
    "Brilliant"

    Where does Lamb rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the very best. The performance is fantastic


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm sure there are people who would be offended but I find this story refreshing and inspiring. And the humor is fantastic.


    What does Fisher Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Fisher Stevens is brilliant with all his different inflections and interpretations of characters. I would love to hear more from him.
