    Research scientist Dr. Marina Singh is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have disappeared in the Amazon while working on an extremely valuable new drug. The last person who was sent to find her died before he could complete his mission. Plagued by trepidation, Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle in hopes of finding answers to the questions about her friend's death, her company's future, and her own past.

    F. B. Herron says: "Do yourself a favor and listen to this book!"
    "Best book"
    Overall

    Probably the best book I have listened to, and that is saying something. Great story and I thought the reader was outstanding.

  • Water for Elephants

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "Surprisingly good."
    Overall

    I did not think I would be interested in a story about the circus. It's a great story, and the readers were terrific.

    Kate Cypher is revisiting her childhood home to care for her Alzheimer's-afflicted mother. She's avoided the place for years, fearful of childhood memories of her friend Del - dubbed Potato Girl by cruel classmates - whose murder 30 years prior was never solved. On the night Kate arrives, an eerily similar murder occurs, forcing Kate to confront her haunting memories.

    Darja says: "another mystical thriller about little girls"
    "This has to be a book for young readers"
    Overall

    Surely this book was intended for the middle school crowd. Nancy Drew had deeper thoughts
