    Heavens to Betsy Devonshire! She never intended to get so caught up in this year's antique car race. But as sponsor of one of the entrants, she can't help but keep a close eye on the outcome - and it's not pretty. One of the drivers never makes it to the finish line. His car is found exploded in flames. Now Betsy and her crafty friends must determine if it was an accident or the work of a jealous competitor. The answer may be in a piece of needlework, but pinning down a suspect won't be easy....

    What made the experience of listening to A Murderous Yarn the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is great and easy to listen to. She does a great job in making the story come to life with wonderful narration.


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

    The plot is wonderful and light, the mystery is something that makes one think. Trying to figure out what the clues are is fun and the characters are wonderful.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story and the intertwining of the antique cars with needle arts is so refreshing.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    What did you love best about One Second After?

    This really makes you think about what could happen and how much we are truly tied to the big infrastructure. The characters are real, you feel the emotion and get caught up easily. Well worth a credit.

    When Napoleon Bonaparte died in exile in 1821, he took to the grave a powerful secret. As general and emperor, he had stolen immeasurable riches from palaces, national treasuries, and even the Knights of Malta and the Vatican. In his final days, his British captors hoped to learn where the loot lay hidden. But he told them nothing, and in his will he made no mention of the treasure. Or did he?

    What made the experience of listening to The Paris Vendetta the most enjoyable?

    The narrator makes it feel like you are there. The plot and story were good and not predictable at all. Well worth your credit!


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

    Once again Scott Brick gives a great performance in the narration of the book. I appreciate the effort he gives in creating a voice for each character.

    The tomb of China’s First Emperor, guarded by an underground army of terra-cotta warriors, has remained sealed for more than 2,000 years. Though it’s regarded as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, the Chinese government won’t allow anyone to open it. Why? That question is at the heart of a dilemma faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone, whose life is shattered when he receives an anonymous note carrying an unfamiliar Web address.

    Jackie says: "Fascinating Ride!"
    "Great read."

    Where does The Emperor's Tomb rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a good listen. Gives some history and a great story to enjoy. At the moment the Cotton Malone series is one of my favorites to listen to.
