    V. I. Warshawski’s closest friend in Chicago is the Viennese-born doctor Lotty Herschel, who lost most of her family in the Holocaust. Lotty escaped to London in 1939 on the Kindertransport with a childhood playmate, Kitty Saginor Binder. When Kitty’s daughter finds her life is in danger, she calls Lotty, who in turn summons V. I. to help. The daughter’s troubles turn out to be just the tip of an iceberg of lies, secrets, and silence, whose origins go back to the mad competition among America, Germany, Japan, and England to develop the first atomic bomb.

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

    Historical, Surprises, Gripping


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Lottie - she sounded like I had her in my head from previous books


    Any additional comments?

    There were many surprises in this book. I am usually wrong in trying to solve the mystery as I'm reading and this book was no different. I did not get tired of the story.

  • A Finer End: A Duncan Kincaid / Gemma James Novel

    Two spellbinding mysteries, one contemporary, and one ancient - that will challenge Superintendent Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James as no case ever has. Glastonbury is a town revered as the mythical burial place of King Arthur, and, according to New Age followers, a source of strong Druid power. Something terrible and bloody shattered Glastonbury Abbey's peace long ago - and now it is about to spark a violence that will reach forward into the present.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, there were so many twists and turns. I had it wrong as I usually do when I try to guess "who-done-it."


    Any additional comments?

    I have read several of the later books and listening to an earlier book was such fun. It took a while to get to where the detectives were brought in but the story was so good I didn't notice that until later.

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

    It kept my interest and was very well done but it was good to take a break.


    Any additional comments?

    I am always concerned when there is a series that by the last book or two the story gets old and mundane. I thought in the beginning that was going to be the case but I was wrong. This book is quite exciting, if you start to get bored keep listening (or reading) you'll be glad you did.
