    Margaret Maron's mysteries starring Judge Deborah Knott have built a loyal following since debuting with the Edgar Award-winning The Bootlegger's Daughter. The series' 18th entry finds Deborah and her husband, Deputy Sheriff Bryant, teaming up with Lt. Sigrid Herald to track down a killer on the loose in their small North Carolina town. But as the hunt for the culprit gets more intense, they uncover long-hidden secrets that cast their investigation in a whole new light.

    Per usual, Judge Knott books are outstanding. Particularly when narrated by C J Critt. Her work is phenomenal!

    Packed with examples of people who pursued their goals relentlessly, the book profiles nearly 50 individuals who prevailed against all odds. From the builder of the Brooklyn Bridge to the chemists who invented Post-It notes we meet people like Bessie Coleman, an African-American who had to go to flight school in Paris in order to learn how to fly. But she did, becoming the first woman in America to earn her pilot's license in 1920.

    When I first listened to this book via my public library, I did not know the author was homophobic. Thank heavens. For had I known, I would never have picked up her book, muchless purchase it later from audible. This is an extremely encouraging, motivating book without being uber-hyper and without any evidence of homophobia in it. It gives common sense tips about establishing priorities, sticking to principles and above all, trusting in God, and never ever giving up. I recommend this book to anyone. The narrator is great - I actually thought it was the author as I had never heard Joyce Meyer's voice before - speaking with confidence, assurance and compassion. Great book.

    We are excited to present our members with a gift that is truly unique: an original essay, available exclusively here at Audible, written and voiced by best-selling author – and fellow listener – Ann Patchett. This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination.

    This is a story with many twists and turns. Deep understanding of human character and strong development of all characters. Loved the narrator! She covered a range of voices - young, old, male, female, Scottish, American.

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Amazon Customer says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"

    Tremendous skill of narrator combined with a compelling story. Loved it!

    In Sister Mary Helen's latest venture as an inadvertent detective, the elderly nun must make do without her even more elderly sidekick, Sister Eileen. Eileen has gone back to Ireland to be with her dying sister, so Mary Helen has no one with whom to share her fears when the head of St. Francis College dies suddenly and is replaced by the coldly efficient Sister Patricia. Surely, Mary Helen feels, she will be swept aside as too old in the "clean sweep" that Sister Patricia is famous for in the order.

    This is a fun mystery. Everything that nuns and detective comedy are meant to be. But ... be patient, the first 30 mins are flat narration. Suddenly everything changes. The rest is primarily dialogue and the animation is excellent. I particularly enjoy the elderly Sister Mary Helen's Irish brogue.

    Sister Mary Helen, still spry at seventy-something, makes a perfectly innocent mistake: she arrives at St. Colette's Retreat House a week early. Unfortunately, so has a convention of San Francisco priests. Mary Helen, accompanied by her long-suffering old friend Sister Eileen, had hoped for a few tranquil days of spiritual renewal.

    Overall

    To clarify point # 2 I believe that the majority of people with friends or family who are gay, or who are gay themselves, would find it more realistic and believable if at least one gay character in the novel demonstrated salt of the earth, strong moral fibre. Even if it meant adding another character.

    When the slightly retarded 15-year-old daughter of a diplomat is murdered in cold blood on school field trip in the Santa Monica Mountains, her father adamantly denies the possibility of a political motive. The Los Angeles Police Department's Detective Milo Sturgis and his longtime friend, psychologist Alex Delaware, pose the question: Why?

    Suspenseful, action-packed and fully developed characters. Awesome narration. Will definitely purchase another Kellerman with Rubinstein as narrator!
