    Between intriguing new cases and troubling personal developments, Precious' hands are full. The four Miss Beauty and Integrity pageant finalists may have questionable moral fiber, and the brother of an important government worker has allegedly been poisoned. On top of all that, Precious' reliable fianci might be hiding something.

    Story

    The No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency stories refresh my soul. There are no great crises or high drama, but rather remarkable interesting characters who face and resolve ordinary problems and the problems of others with dignity and fairness. Reading these stories is like a dip in a cold stream fed pool after a long hot hike. The performance is good, but I sped up the narration a bit. Listening to the audio version makes me wants to purchase the kindle version for future beach reading.

    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Story

    The 6 volume Riyria Revelations is a fast moving adventure tale with wonderful characters who continue to grow throughout the story. The story is tight, fast moving and the narrator is brilliant. He stays in voice for each of the main characters so that you can begin to identify them by the sound of their voices. I found myself deeply invested and rooting for the heroes of this tale. I have rarely listened to a long series that didn't wander, but this series moved right along. Each volume consists of a part A & B, so the series easily breaks into 6 parts if you need a breather between parts. I didn't and now my 12 year old grandson has started "Theft of Swords". He's a bit of a minecraft addict, but the Riyria Revelations has broken him away from the computer.
