    In an unprecedented literary feat, Steve Hamilton’s debut novel, A Cold Day in Paradise, captured both the prestigious Edgar and Shamus awards. Now the best-selling author presents the third installment in his critically acclaimed mystery series: a complex, atmospheric tale that will plunge listeners back into icy, unpredictable Alex McKnight territory, where the private investigator finds himself doing a favor for an old friend – but this favor could cost him his life.

    Listening to the performance reminded me of an 8th grade play. It is absolutely the worst performance I've ever heard. There are irritating voices -- Len Cariou comes to mind -- who still deliver good performances. And then there's this -- the only audio book I have ever unplugged, and bought in paperback to finish. I sincerely hope Steve Hamilton -- who is a good author -- doesn't make this mistake again.

    Carry the One begins in the hours following Carmen's wedding reception, when a car filled with stoned, drunk, and sleepy guests accidently hits and kills a girl on a dark, country road. For the next 25 years, those involved, including Carmen and her brother and sister, connect, disconnect, and reconnect with one another and their victim. As one character says, "When you add us up, you always have to carry the one."

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.
