Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".

    Adrian Mckinty does it again. Another great book, hard to put down. Gerard Doyle is consistently a marvelous narrator. The stories are gritty, sad, funny and satisfying. I read them out of order, however, if you read the Audible introduction you'll catch on fast. Then you'll be hooked. Enjoy!

At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead. Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one...one by one they begin to die. Who among them is the killer? And will any of them survive?

    Welcome back to the village of Ballybucklebo. Come and say hello again to Dr. O'Reilly's odd-as-two-left-feet patients; his housekeeper, Mrs. "Kinky" Kinkaid; and O'Reilly's pets: Arthur Guinness, the beer-swilling black Lab, and Lady MacBeth, the demonically possessed white cat. And of course, to young Dr. Barry Laverty. After Barry's first month as an assistant to crusty Dr. O'Reilly, he has been offered a permanent spot. But Laverty's excitement is dashed when one of his patients unexpectedly dies.

    After less than a year, young Barry Laverty, M.B., is settling in to the village, with only a few months to go before he becomes a full partner in the practice. He's looking forward to becoming a fixture in the community, until an unexpected romantic reversal gives him second thoughts. Will he truly be happy tending to routine coughs and colds for the rest of his career? After all, even when a more challenging case comes along, like a rare tropical disease, all he can do is pass it on to a qualified specialist or big-city hospital. Is running a humble GP's shop all he wants out of life?

    This may be my very favorite book of the series. I can't wait to start on the next one! Patrick Taylor is a wonderful writer and kudos to John Keating for his terrific narration. I highly recommend the entire series. You don't have to be Irish to enjoy these stories. They are fun.uplifting,and very enjoyable.

    Spring 1937. In the four years since she left England, Maisie Dobbs has experienced love, contentment, stability - and the deepest tragedy a woman can endure. Now all she wants is the peace she believes she might find by returning to India. But her sojourn in the hills of Darjeeling is cut short when her stepmother summons her home to England; her aging father, Frankie Dobbs, is not getting any younger.

    I waited so long for another Maisie Dobbs story and this one turned out to be so boring and convoluted. I couldn't wait for the ending. If you are a fan of the Maisie Dobbs stories, my advise is save your credit for another book by another author.

    P.S. It pains me to write a negative review, I enjoyed most of the Jacqueline Winspear books so very much.

    Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there, but already he knows that there is nowhere he would rather live than in the emerald hills and dales of Northern Ireland. The proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree and little else in the way of worldly possessions, Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice.

    It's a time of unexpected change for Stone Barrington. A recent venture has achieved a great victory, but is immediately faced with a new challenge: an underhanded foe who is determined to wreak havoc at any cost. Meanwhile, when Stone finds himself responsible for distributing the estate of a respected friend and mentor, the process reveals secrets that range from merely surprising to outright alarming.

    Frankly, I almost didn't choose this newest "Stone Barrington" book .The reviews were not encouraging and I didn't like the last book in the series. However, I took a chance on this one and I enjoyed it more than I anticipated. Lots of twists,turns and unexpected exciting bits that held my interest right to the end. Tony Roberts did a great job of bringing all the characters to life as usual! I still wish the author would skip the politics and tone down the sex scenes. But that's just this woman' s opinion. If you're a fan of the series I would recommend you try this one.

    An instant hit in the UK, this is the true account of a German shepherd who was adopted by the Royal Air Force during World War II, joined in flight missions, and survived everything from crash-landings to parachute bailouts-ultimately saving the life of his owner and dearest friend. In the winter of 1939 in the cold snow of no-man's-land, two loners met and began an extraordinary journey that would turn them into lifelong friends.

    Don't hesitate to use your credit on this heartwarming story. You don't have to be a dog lover to enjoy this true story set in WW ll. You don't even have to be a member of that generation to find it worthwhile and enjoyable..I believe high school and college students would find it "a good read". An honest look at the reality of those difficult times. You'll laugh, you'll cry,and most of all you won't want it to end.

    Detective Carl Morck has received a bottle that holds an old and decayed message written in blood. It's a cry for help from two young brothers, tied and bound in a boathouse by the sea. After floating in the ocean for years before turning up, the bottle sat forgotten, unopened, on a police department windowsill, before the seal was cracked and the gruesome message, written in Danish, was analyzed. Could it be real? Who are these boys, and why weren't they reported missing? Could they possibly still be alive?

    O.K. I'll be the "naysayer". The premise was not believable. If you enjoy reading about unremitting torture and the evils of religious cults,then maybe this book is for you. I'm not judging. I just can't believe all the reviewers and I read the same book! I regret I read this one based on the reviews.

    Stone Barrington has returned to Paris to attend to some business concerns, and finds himself embroiled in high-stakes trouble on both sides of the pond. An old enemy is still in hot pursuit, and this time he might have a powerful local resource on his side: a gentleman with his own ax to grind against Stone. And back in the United States, the swirling rumor mill threatens to derail a project of vital importance not just to Stone but to the nation.

    Too many love starved women fighting over him. Dumb and dumber. The sex scenes were vulgar and unnecessary Way too much political yada yada.Overall a very dull read. I have read most of the Stone Barrington books but this one was ludicrous. The last one should have warned me not to pr-order. Never again. Even Tony Roberts couldn't save this lemon.

    I took a chance on this selection. I thought three books for one credit would just be mediocre at best. I was wrong on all counts. All the books were well written ,and built up to exciting conclusions. Police methods,procedures and jargon were well researched and accurate. Read them in order. They will have more meaning. Len Cariou was an excellent narrator . My one complaint was the music. It was intrusive, off putting and unnecessary. However, don't let that stop you, the stories are still worth your credit.
