    Samuel Madison always wondered what Sandrine saw in him, he a meek, stuffy doctorate student and she a brilliant, beautiful bohemian with limitless talent and imagination. Yet on the surface their marriage seemed perfectly tranquil: jobs at a small liberal arts college, a precocious young daughter, a home filled with art and literature, and trips to some of the world’s most beautiful places. Then one night Sandrine is found dead in their bed from a deadly overdose of pain medication and alcohol, and Samuel is accused of poisoning her.

    What made the experience of listening to Sandrine's Case the most enjoyable?

    This audiobook took me a while to finish. The story was an interesting idea but repeated certain themes over and over and over again. A shorter version would have been more powerful. I find it less dramatic once and author starts to drive home points to exhaustion.


    If you’ve listened to books by Thomas H. Cook before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first Thomas H. Cook book. I may give the author another try.


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

    The narration was definitely what kept me listening to this novel. Holsopple's performance does a perfect job of relating both the sadness and the arrogance of the main character. I wish the voice of Sandrine had been a little less negative and whining but all of the male character voices were spot on. The pacing also seemed to enhance the story.

    When a vagrant - the Walking Man - finds a dog wandering alone with the words Help Us written on its collar, he's sure it's a desperate plea from someone in trouble and calls on Detective Inspector Jack Caffery to investigate. Caffery has no idea who or what he is searching for, but one thing he is sure of: it's a race against time. Meanwhile, the Anchor-Ferrers, a wealthy local family, are fighting for their lives in their remote home 10 miles away. Two men have tricked their way into the house and are holding the family for ransom.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Excellent Mystery and Suspense"
    "Different narrator than the other novels"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I have enjoyed the entire Jack Caffrey series with a combination of reading and listening. I've liked them all, and was especially captivated by the narrator for the other audio books. This recent novel has a new narrator that I didn't care for, although it's difficult to replace a narrator that you've really come to appreciate.

    As for the story itself I must also say that I'm sure it was just as good as the other books in the series. I, however, couldn't continue once I realized part of the story involved a dog being tortured. I want to emphasize that this is not a bad review- it's just a personal viewpoint and a caution for animal (particularly dog) lovers with sensitivity to animal cruelty.
