    First-year detective Kathleen Doyle is a plucky Irish redhead of humble origins and modest means. Chief Inspector Michael Acton is her antithesis: a British lord turned cop. He's tall, handsome, and enigmatic - to a fault. He also has a knack for solving London's most high-profile crimes. Acton selects Doyle out of the newbie squad to partner with him on a series of investigations because she always knows when someone is lying - a trait that comes in handy when interviewing suspects and witnesses.

    "Interesting, intelligent, engrossing"

    What made the experience of listening to Murder in Thrall the most enjoyable?

    Very well written. Suspenseful, sometimes funny with very interesting and imperfect characters. I can't wait to read the next one "Murder in Retribution."


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder in Thrall?

    The epilogue was very clever. It could have been the first chapter, but was very cleverly written to be the epilogue.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was in the epilogue when Action first met Kathleen,


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to it 3 times in one week.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "Interesting, well written characters."

    What made the experience of listening to The Cuckoo's Calling the most enjoyable?

    Good plot development, characters with some emotional depth. But not too much. Nothing is more boring in my opinion than characters who tell us in great detail their emotional response.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cuckoo's Calling?

    My favorite part of the story was when Robin accepted the job working for Cormoran's job offer.

    When the Catriona Beldame is found murdered and her home set ablaze, Hamish Macbeth must clear his own name and then work to solve yet another murder to bring peace and quiet back to his beloved village. His investigations are complicated by a romance with a female forensic expert. Perhaps the Scotish Highlands' most stubborn bachelor will get married at last!

    vancouverquilter says: "The narrator really makes the story"
    "M C Beaton Does It Again"
    Overall

    I love the Hamish Macbeth series. The characters, the humour, the plot make for a great escape into a wonderful gentle world that you wish really existed.

    A careful, methodical young data analyst for a California insurance company, John Walker knows when people will marry, at what age they will most likely have children, and when they will die. All signs point to a long successful career---until Max Stillman, a gruff security consultant, appears without warning at the office. It seems a colleague with whom Walker once had an affair has disappeared after paying a very large death benefit to an impostor.

    Julie says: "My favorite book from one of my favorite authors."
    "My favorite book from one of my favorite authors."
    Overall

    Death Benefits is a well crafted, suspensful mystery. The story brings us from California, to Florida to New England. It starts with an ambitious,young business woman out to make a sale. She seems as real a person so me, as one of my collegues. (Okay maybe a little more aggressive) But I had a real sense of who she was and even liked her.

    Then she is gone. Next we meet two very interesting men who are characters, interesting, funny and real.

    Thomas Perry is a master of stringing details around the story to hook up in and keep us hanging on. Of course, he brings us to a surprise ending.

    I love this book.
