    Young detective Anna Travis has been assigned to her first murder case, and it couldn't be a more horrific set of killings. They began eight years earlier; now the body count is up to six. After another body is found, Anna stumbles on a vital piece of evidence which links one man to the killings. However, he's a household name, a much-loved actor, and an arrest would create a media frenzy. And, if he was found to be the wrong man, his career would be finished, as well as Anna's.

    After three years with Audible this is by far the best book yet. Lynda La Plante weaves a totally believable story. After watching Prime Suspect a few years ago with Helen Mirren I thought this would be a good 'read' but I wasn't expecting anything this good. As if the novel wasn't great enough Kim Hicks, the narrator, simply portrays everything in 3D it's like listening to a play with a whole cast of actors. A real page turner but at the same time you don't want it to end. I only wish there were more books available by the same author and reader.

  • Touch of Frost

    A rapist on the loose, a young girl missing, a robbery at a leisure complex run by a low life, and an old man knocked down by a driver who wouldn't stop. Detective Inspector Jack Frost knew that there would be lots more to come.

    The crime novel at its compelling best as David Jason, the star of the television series of the same name, reads R. D. Wingfield's A Touch of Frost.

    Overall

    This is a great series of books. I thought the TV series was good but the book gives Jack Frost far more depth.
    I find it hard to believe that Audible only have a few to select from and only one unabridged! Come on Audible lets not waste time and money on these abridged versions.
    Could the editor please tell me where we can make suggestions for new books, I don't seem to find that anymore.

    Life was a bed of roses for Patrick Aldermann when Great Aunt Florence collapsed in her rose-bed and he inherited Rosemont House with its splendid gardens. But when his boss, 'Dandy' Dick Elgood, suggested to Peter Pascoe that Aldermann was a murderer, then retracted the accusation, the inspector was left with a thorny problem. Though by then a police cadet had dug up some very interesting information about Patrick's elegant wife.

    Warning: These Dalziel & Pascoe books are highly addictive!
    Reginald Hill writes in a very down to earth refreshing manner and Colin Buchanan paints in 3D and you?re centre stage.
    In three years with Audible I have never ?read? a book so quickly....Bravo.....More!!

    Andy Dalziel was preoccupied with the illegal book that one of his Sergeants was running on who was to be appointed as the new Chief Constable...and how to make sure his own bet paid off. But when a battered Ford Escort containing one very dead Italian turned up in the police car park, Peter Pascoe and his bloated superior were plunged into an investigation that made internal police politics look like child's play.

    Respected and loved by millions of people around the world, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, is a powerful and profound man. The Tibetan spiritual leader's words of wisdom resonate with everyone from world leaders to the common man. Born into a peasant family, the Dalai Lama was two years old when he was recognized as the reincarnation of his predecessor, The 13th Dalai Lama. And Tenzin Gyatso was only 16 when he assumed full political power, once China threatened to take over his country.

    Marianna Eros says: "words of wisdom?"
    "Very poor pronunciation"
    Overall

    I was interested in purchasing this book, however, after hearing the sample and found the narrators inability for pronunciation I decided better of it.
