    When spray-painted graffiti appears on the wall of Christy Burke's pub, indicating that there's a killer on the premises, Burke's grandson, Father Brennan Burke, is asked to investigate the vandalism. Though not at all keen on probing into the lives of the bar's clientele, he has little choice once a body is found on the property. Issuing orders from a cell in Mountjoy Prison, the pub's current owner wants the problem solved without the police anywhere near his building.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I've enjoyed all the other books in the series, but this one couldn't hold my interest. Only a person who is steeped in the Irish Freedom movement would possibly stick to it - the plot was thin.


    Has Death at Christy Burke’s: A Collins-Burke Mystery, Book 6 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all, just this particular story.


    Did Christian Rummel do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think the narrator has done these characters enough to have a good grip on how to portray them.


    What character would you cut from Death at Christy Burke’s: A Collins-Burke Mystery, Book 6?

    I'd cut the book, or rewrite it to make it more interesting.

    Eighteen months ago, Aleut Kate Shugak quit her job investigating sex crimes for the Anchorage DA’s office and retreated to her father’s homestead in a national park in the interior of Alaska. But the world has a way of beating a path to her door, however remote. In the middle of one of the bitterest Decembers in recent memory ex-boss — and ex-lover — Jack Morgan shows up with an FBI agent in tow.

    Tracey says: "You never go wrong with a Stabenow novel"
    "Mystery and suspense in Alaskan wilderness"

    What did you love best about A Cold Day for Murder?

    Totally different setting and interesting characters.


    What other book might you compare A Cold Day for Murder to and why?

    Kate is sort of an Alaskan Kinsey Milhone, but even more independent, self-sufficient, and tough as nails.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    Kate Shugak was performed the best - the narrator had to make her voice sound like it had been damaged.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    In Alaska, that's going some.

    It's midsummer in Sweden, when the light lingers through dawn as winter finally ends. In this magical time, a brutal killer strikes, and the murder of a female priest sends shock waves through the community. Though she has no cause to get involved, attorney Rebecka Martinsson cannot help herself. And the further she is drawn into a mystery that will soon claim another victim, the more the dead woman's world consumes her - a world of hurt and healing, sin and sexuality, and above all, of lethal sacrifice.

    Susan says: "Could not stop listening"
    "Downer with no plot"
    Overall

    This is the worst book I've ever selected from audible. It really was a downer, didn't explain things that had gone on with the main character before the story started and didn't really seem to have a plot or a point. It kind of reminded me of the "heavy" English class reading in honors classes from Scandinavian countries that were depressing and too boring to figure out. Can you tell I don't recommend it?
