    For freewheeling ghost hunter Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. An agent for the Church of Real Truth, she investigates claims of harassment by the undead. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.

    Story

    This series just keeps getting better. The first book introduced this new world, and the characters. This book expands and develops these characters. Chess is such a messed up addict, that seems to do her job well, but can't get her personal life in order. The book is non stop action, and emotional turmoil. The main problem is getting away from the narration, it's so good. The voices are unique, and she captures the feelings of everyone she speaks for. I read the first novel, but do believe I will have to listen to the rest of them.

    A torso in a suitcase looks like an impossible case, but Sean Duffy isn’t easily deterred, especially when his floundering love life leaves him in need of a distraction. So with detective constables McCrabban and McBride, he goes to work identifying the victim. The torso turns out to be all that’s left of an American tourist who once served in the U.S. military. What was he doing in Northern Ireland in the midst of the 1982 Troubles?

    Story

    Start with "A Cold Cold Ground" that introduces us to Sean Duffy, a good companion cast of characters, and background on The Troubles in the 1980's. This book resumes where that one left off. A non-stop police thriller starting with a torso in a suitcase. Duffy dives right in, with one small clue blending in to another murder. They seem to be connected, but logically they are not, or are they? Duffy digs in, getting himself targeted by various groups, cops and robbers alike. His love life is suffering, his body ends up suffering, and perhaps his future is suffering. An interesting story, along with the absolute perfect narrator pulling us back to 1980's Ireland.

    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

    Trying to avoid scandalous talk about the baby, Alexia flees England for refuge in Italy. Of course, trouble always follows Alexia and this time it's in the form of vampires. Running for her life, she thinks she finds sanctuary in Italy, but that may be another fine mess she's gotten herself in to, no thanks to her werewolf husband trying to drink away his problems. Professor Lyle keeps the story interesting, with Channing and Flute saving the day. The story opens up many questions about Alexia's little inconvience, leaving things wide open for "Heartless"

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Story

    After reading reviews of the wonderful narration, I had to download this book. Now, after listening to the book, I have to agree with other reviewers that the narration makes the book. If I would have read it, I don't think I would have enjoyed it half as much. It's a narration that begins after the affair ended 18 months earlier. The jilted lover, still hurting runs into his ex Sarah and all the old feelings re-emerge. His question 'does he love or hate her', thus the theme of the story, leading to the question of faith and how different people interpret the idea of faith. An interesting and thought provoking listen.

    Gail Carriger created a fascinating steampunk vision of Victorian England in her “intoxicatingly witty” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) debut novel Soulless—the first in the best-selling Parasol Protectorate series. Changeless is the second in the series and finds Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey, quite put out after her werewolf husband goes missing. So, armed with her trusty parasol, Alexia boards a dirigible and heads for Scotland to find him.

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Story

    Set in an alternate Victorian England, this tale is wonderfully witty, full of humor, set within a horrific story . Miss Tarrabotti is what they call a preternatural, that can neutralize the effects of the supernatural. She is one of very few of her kind, who finds herself in all kinds of predicaments that ends up in the hands of the supernaturals' own police dept, thus enters Lord Maccon. These two are always at odds, thus becoming attracted to each other, with banter that delights the listener. Elsewhere, in the story is a group of sinister scientists that are out to exterminate anything unnatural, putting our main characters in peril. The whole book is made up of a very amusing group of characters that keeps us in chuckles while solving mysterious disappearances of vampires and werewolves.
    The narration is excellent in capturing the language and wit intended.

She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

    Story

    Have read or listened to this entire series, and I must say that it was well worth the time. Harrison created an alternate world full of demons, witches, elves and vampires, made it thoroughly engrossing with good times and bad. The books had times that we cried for characters lost, feared for the future, and laughed out loud. I grew close to this little family and will miss them all, Jinx's sense of humor, Newt's unpredictability, the mystery of Trent, and Al being my favorite with his arrogance and seemingly uncaring attitude.
    This book ties up all the loose ends of the previous books, solves the dilemma of the demons, the soul searching of the vampires, and the future path for all the supes.
    Rachel does find out where she fits in to the whole scheme of things, finally, with a satisfying close to the series. Thanks Kim.

Now, he and his devoted wife, Rina Lazarus, are ready to enjoy the quiet beauty of upstate New York, where they can be closer to their four adult children and their foster son. But working for the Greenbury Police department isn't as fulfilling as Decker hoped. While Rina has adapted beautifully to their new surroundings, Decker is underwhelmed and frustrated by his new partner, Tyler McAdams, a former Harvard student and young buck with a bad 'tude.

    This story was like a whole new beginning for the series. Peter and Rena have moved cross country to be closer to the kids and grand-kids. Rena has settled in, but Peter is growing restless with his new boring job in a small police dept. That all changes when he is called to investigate a cemetery break in. Peter and his new partner have a way to go to blend, with him being a young Harvard graduate that seems to have a chip on his shoulder. This duo provides us with the comic relief for what ends up to be a complex art heist that turns very deadly for all involved. The characters are wonderful and the narration grows on you after awhile.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    Will Robie is a government assassin, thinking about being 40, then letting his conscience be his guide on an assignment. A correct decision opens a whole can of worms and never ending consequences for Will, including involvement in a murder, and protecting a 14 year old eye witness.
    This is a non-stop thriller with an ever evolving plot, likable characters and dramatic conclusion, left a tad open for the next book. The narrators do an excellent job (although Julie does sound somewhat older than she should). Glad this is only the first of the Robie saga, cause growing attached to this group was an easy thing to do.

    Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural. Body and soul - they're also what Peter will risk as he investigates a pattern of similar deaths in and around Soho.

    Story

    This is the second installment of the Peter Grant series. Peter is an apprentice to Inspector Nightengale of the magic police. It picks up where the first book leaves off, with Lesley on the mend, so Peter is on his own, jumping head on into the fire. When things (speaking of the magical bad people) are obvious to us, Peter is in denial (which becomes a little frustrating at times), as he puts his family and co workers in danger. Still, it's a good story made even better by the narration. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith does an excellent job with the voices and capturing the feel of the country. I'll go on to the next installment, hoping to see Peter mature some with his magical skills and acting correctly on his intuition.

    Northern Ireland in 1981 during "The Troubles", one murder, then another, seems to be a serial killer of homosexuals, but is it? Sean Duffy is in charge and going to find out, but has many obstacles to cross trying to get to the conclusion.
    This book recreates a great backdrop of the politics and civil uprisings of that time. Was a good history lesson for me, with a fascinating crime mystery to solve.
    The narration is exceptional with the accents and character differentiation.
    Glad to hear this is the first of a trilogy.
