    While swimming along the Sicilian shore, Inspector Montalbano discovers a corpse. His pursuit of the cause of death intersects with the inquiry into a hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a young boy who may have been victimized by human traffickers. The buying and selling of immigrant children, for slave labor, sex, and as a source of illegal organ transplants, is part of the evil underside of the opening of Europe's borders.

    Imagine running into a dead body while you are swimming, and then having the mental and physical fortitude to drag it back to shore. That's how the story starts. Imagine where it ends.

    Witty Wodehouses�s best-loved creation is the master-servant team of Bertie Wooster, the charming nitwit, and Jeeves, his effortlessly superior valet and protector. Newsweek says "they are at their best in The Code of the Woosters." Newsweek says "they are at their best in The Code of the Woosters."

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    The wise cracking dog, Oberon gets my vote as the best character; although the blood sucking lawyer is a close second. I enjoyed how the author toyed with stereo types and wasn't adverse to a pun or three. Nothing to keep you up at night, but good entertainment. Oh, and it was a definite plus that he really sucked up to all the female characters and was a nice respectful young man.

    The narrator draws you in and makes you party to the story. You believe it has happened, all of it. Happily for me, it is ultimately redemptive, ending on an up beat note.

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

Winnifred Carruthers, out to dinner, since he's sure no one else will do so. But before he can turn off the lights and lock the door, a panic-stricken Buffalo Bill Brody visits them. It seems that the Eastminster pet show is being held the next day, and his dragon, Fluffy, the heavy favorite, has been kidnapped.

    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    It is perfect that he is reading his own work. No one else could do it just right. the book itself is a bit rough, a jumble of things from his life more than stories about the world of food with which we are more familiar. Nevertheless, entertaining and some times laugh out loud funny.

    The music rose to a climax. Lord Pastern aimed his revolver and fired. The figure in the spotlight fell and what had been intended as a coup-de-théâtre had become murder.... Could Inspector Alleyn believe that the eccentric peer had let hatred of his future son-in-law go too far? Or would the tangle of jealousies and blackmail among the party guests reveal another murderer?

    I've become a fan of Ngaio Marsh thanks to Audible - her books are easily available here. The readings by James Saxon are particularly good. He makes the characters come alive and each is distinct and definitive. If you like Agatha Christie, try Ngaio Marsh.

    The crime was committed on stage at the Unicorn Theatre, when an unloaded gun fired a very real bullet. The Victim was Arthur Surbanadier, an actor clawing his way to stardom using Blackmail victims. The stage was set for one of Chief Detective Inspector Alleyn’s most baffling cases.

    Ngaio Marsh should be better known. Her books are perfect time pieces. This one is set in WWII New Zealand. The detective is investigating two interlinked mysteries a death and a spy. The details of the place bring you into the room as the characters discuss the personality of the dead woman and the reading is pitch perfect with each character given a distinct voice.
