    Dr. Martin Gänsewein wishes only to return to his simple and peaceful life as coroner; unfortunately his undead partner, Pascha, has other plans. When bodies at the local cemetery begin turning up sans organs, Martin and Pascha are propelled into their most dangerous mystery yet. As organs disappear at a rapid rate and gruesome threats pile up, Martin realizes his only chance for survival could be with the one person he wants to be rid of.

    What made the experience of listening to Morgue Drawer for Rent the most enjoyable?

    MacLeod Andrews totally makes the delightful experience of the Morgue Drawer Series a fun, interesting and humorous adventure. I adore the characters in this book and love the story lines. I've now listened to all three and can't wait for another. Please Jutta Profijt, write more stories of the adventures of Martin and especially Pascha.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The mystery, the surprises around the corner and the performance of MacLeod.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He did an excellent job in all of the books he performed. He is the best performer of books and there are many very good ones, but he is the best.


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

    It made me laugh a lot, but the only reason I cried is because I want more books to read with these characters and by this author and performer.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the Morgue Drawer series and cannot wait until more books are written in the series.

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Shy, but scrupulous, he is happy working as a coroner in the Cologne morgue - until one of his usually taciturn “clients” starts talking to him. It seems the ghost of a recently deceased (and surprisingly chatty) small-time car thief named Pascha is lingering near his lifeless body in drawer number four of Martin’s morgue. He remains for one reason: his accidental death was actually murder. Pascha isn’t too keen on the good doctor, considering the tidy manner in which his body was dissected upon the autopsy table.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Morgue Drawer Four to be better than the print version?

    I have not yet read the print version of this book. I can say with complete assurance that the reader of this book hooked me with his engaging voice and endearing attitude. I love the Pascha character most along with the others. The story line is intriguing and the forensics touch is captivating. I have three of them so far, and hope to have more as soon as they are available.


    What other book might you compare Morgue Drawer Four to and why?

    I can't say I've read another book like it. I do think of the old detective mysteries when I listen to this one.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    I am convinced that MacLeod Andrews could make any character a favorite. However, Pascha has got to be my number one favorite.


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

    Not only did I want to listen to this one in one sitting, and I very nearly did, but I also would like a marathon of these books in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly entertaining and fun audio with mystery and intrigue splashed in.

  • House of Reckoning

    For more than three decades John Saul has haunted the New York Times best seller list - and listeners imaginations - with his chilling tales of psychological suspense and supernatural horror. His instinct for striking the deepest chords of fear in our hearts and minds is unerring, and his gift for steering a tale from the light of day into the darkest depths of nightmare is at its harrowing best in House of Reckoning.

    What did you love best about House of Reckoning?

    The imagination of the writer. He had some excellent and totally unique ideas.


    What other book might you compare House of Reckoning to and why?

    The book reminded me, not so much of another book as, of movies or TV shows. It had it's moments that it was similar to paranormal shows especially. What I truly liked about House of Reckoning was that it gave the reader exactly what she/he wanted in the end and some of the ideas and scenes were wickedly lovely. I could so easily picture what was being read to me.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    I liked several of the characters, however, Bettina Phillips stands out a bit more than the rest. My maiden name is Crane and so I did like that bit of familiarity as well.


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

    The red ants was so real in my imagination that I could almost feel them. I also laughed at the epilogue.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to hear more about Shudders and the characters--any change for a second book?

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    If you could sum up The Ocean at the End of the Lane in three words, what would they be?

    Delightful, entranced, reassured.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was constantly entertaining and held me with it's ideas and characters and at the end, the possibility of more..... :)


    Have you listened to any of Neil Gaiman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to his other books, but I plan on doing so. He is such an amazing story teller and ranks second only to my big brother who read Tolkien to me and my sister as a child.


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

    It made me giggle at times and truly made me feel good to read it. I love that it ended the way it did and didn't make me sad or angry.


    Any additional comments?

    The title of this book drew me in and captured me and I knew it was the book for me. Thank you Neil Gaiman for being such an excellent writer and storyteller.
