    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Chopin Manuscript in three words, what would they be?

    Who would've thought 15 different authors, working separately, could create a coherent, cohensive work of art? This was a fabulous read.

    This definitive audio collection, read by Stacy Keach, traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style - from the plain bald language of his first story to his mastery of seamless prose that contained a spare, eloquent pathos, as well as a sense of expansive solitude. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the 20th century.

    What did you love best about The Short Stories, Volume I?

    I confess that I haven't read anything by Ernest Hemingway since I was forced to do so in high school. My teachers TOLD me what a phenomenal writer he was, but my teenaged self failed to appreciate it. So, fast forward a few years and imagine my utter delight and surprise. His writing is clean, precise, succinct; his stories are still relevant and entertaining. I am now a huge fan and am gobbling up everything I can!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Stacy Keach was the perfect choice to narrate this collection. HIs voice was expressive, gritty and hard when required, soft and passionate.
