    Breathless and painstakingly researched, this is a stunning debut mystery in which Sherlock Holmes unmasks Jack the Ripper. Lyndsay Faye perfectly captures all the color and syntax of Conan Doyle’s distinctive nineteenth-century London.

    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    An exciting, brutal, and riveting new Sherlock Holmes mystery with a spot on performance by Simon Vance.

  • The Bell Ringers: A Novel

    Story
    (7)

    In The Bell Ringers, England in the near future appears largely unchanged. There are concerns over the threat of terrorism, the press is feisty, and the prime minister is soon to call a general election. But quietly - and largely unknown to the public or even most in government - things have become undeniably Orwellian: cameras with license plate recognition software record every car's movements, and a sophisticated, top-secret data-mining system known as Deep Truth combs through personal records.

    A User says: "Fantastic Political Thriller"

    Overall

    It reads like a great British television drama script, and Porter does a wonderful job of making George Orwell a prophet. John Lee does his usual outstanding performance.

  • The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom

    Story
    (152)

    Twenty-six-year-old cavalry officer Slavomir Rawicz was captured by the Red Army in 1939 during the German-Soviet partition of Poland and sent to the Siberian Gulag. In the spring of 1941, he escaped with six of his fellow prisoners, including one American. Thus began their astonishing trek to freedom.

    Roger says: "Good story, well read"
    "A good narrative. To bad none of it's true."
    Overall

    The story is gripping, and the narration seems true to the experience. It's too bad none of the experience is true. A 2006 BBC documentary film proved that Rawicz's story was made up.

    Exuberant and touching, La Cucina is a magical evocation of life's mysterious seasons and the treasures found in each one. It celebrates family, food, passion, and the eternal rapture of romance.

    Harry says: "A good story, very well told ..."
    "Molto Moods"
    Overall

    Here we have "Under the Tuscan Sun" meets "The Godfather", meets "Harlquin Romances" meets "Penthouse Forum ". Something for everyone, whether you want it or not. Makes for an interesting listen while in your car with your spouse for 6 hours. The one things we were wondering --- did the author actually taste the "fried calf's brains" recipe she offers in the narrative? She certainly doesn't menton how it tasted. Oh well.

  • Solomon's Song: The Australian Trilogy, Book 3

    Here is the story of two families, branches of the Solomons, transported to an alien land. Both branches eventually grow rich and powerful. But through three generations, the families never, for one moment, relinquish their hatred for each other. This novel is also the story of Australia, from its beginnings to its coming of age as a nation.

    Anne says: "Breathtaking!"
    "Solomon's Song"
    Overall

    An outstanding saga, an fantastic performance, a truly riveting listen. Profoundly moving at times.
