    Iceland’s best-selling novelist and a winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award, Arnaldur Indridason is an international phenomenon highly regarded for his engrossing crime fiction. In Hypothermia, Inspector Erlendur contends with personal demons while investigating a woman’s suicide. Although there are no signs of foul play, Erlendur gradually exposes a sinister plot.

    Story

    Very slow start and it never picks up. You can't care about the characters, because the author doesn't develop them or the story. Disappointing as I've read other books by this author that were interesting.

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

    One of the best fiction audiobooks I've listened to in the last several years.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The story was interesting, exciting, and moved quickly. Even with quite a few characters, it was easy to keep them straight thanks to a well-written story and excellent narrator with a real talent for multiple accents.

  • Imperial Life in the Emerald City

    Story
    (185)

    The Washington Post's former Baghdad bureau chief, Rajiv Chandrasekaran, takes us into the Green Zone, headquarters for the American occupation in Iraq. In this bubble separated from wartime realities, the task of reconstructing Iraq is in the hands of 20-somethings chosen for their Republican Party loyalty. They pursue irrelevant neoconservative solutions and pie-in-the-sky policies instead of rebuilding looted buildings and restoring electricity, angering the locals and fueling the insurgency.

    Rick Grant says: "A stunning work and performance"
    "A view from inside the Green Zone"
    Overall

    A well told story of the inter-workings of the CPA and the early years of the U.S. presence in Iraq. Can be disturbing as it explains just how unprepared the U.S. government was with this occupation. Truly eye-opening.
