    Everything about the man is a mystery: the massive ranch in the remote Black Hills of Wyoming that nobody ever visits, the women who live with him, the secret philanthropies, the private airstrip, the sudden disappearances. And especially the persistent rumors that the man’s wealth comes from killing people. Joe Pickett, still officially a game warden but now mostly a troubleshooter for the governor, is assigned to find out what the truth is, but he discovers a lot more than he’d bargained for. There are two other men living up at that ranch. One is a stone-cold killer who takes an instant dislike to Joe.

    What made the experience of listening to Stone Cold the most enjoyable?

    David Chandler - he is awesome!


    What other book might you compare Stone Cold to and why?

    None - this book was a disappointment to me. I loved all of his others.


    Which character – as performed by David Chandler – was your favorite?

    Nate - he breaks my heart.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not necessarily.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was disappointing and the Sheridan story line seemed unnecessary and even odd. This is the first book in the series (I have them all) that I would not listen to again.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    If you could sum up Chiefs in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, horrific, slow


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Chiefs?

    Discovering what happened to Willie.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Voice changes would have been better - sometimes hard to tell who was speaking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes...sometimes it was too difficult to listen to. Can't imagine living in the South.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad I slogged through to the end...but many times it was very slow moving.

  • West with the Night

    West with the Night is the story of a remarkable woman molded and shaped by many things: the African jungle, a certain dog, horses, airplanes, friendships with white men and black. There is no life, no story quite like it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of West with the Night to be better than the print version?

    Yes, without question. Julie Harris WAS Beryl Markham. You could hear her love of the story as if it were her own.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Beryl herself. A remarkable childhood turned her into a remarkable woman.


    What about Julie Harris’s performance did you like?

    The honesty of it. Her voice rose and fell like the tides, putting every emotion of the writer into each page. I will look for more books narrated by Julie Harris.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The horse race between Rack and Wise Child. It would not have been nearly as exciting without Julie Harris' interpretation. (I have not yet completed the book...there may be more.)


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Beryl Markham had written more. I do not want the story to end. I wish I had not waited so long to listen to the book. It is absolutely incredible - my very favorite of all my books.
