    Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is investigating the bizarre slaying of Katie Bishop, a member of Brighton's social elite. Her husband Brian appears to be in the clear - he was in another town at the time, sound asleep. But Grace begins to suspect the presence of a doppelganger: is someone else - almost identical to Bishop - involved in the crime?

    Story

    There is too much description of every kind.Chapter 91 and still on day 3 of murder enquiry, which is hardly touched on.

    Story

    Enjoyable mix of mystery, regional awareness and love story. New York policewoman in French aristocratic milieu, highlights differences in murder investigation procedures. Captivating story and characters. The narrator, Kathe Mazur is first rate in both French & English. Fought hard to stay awake till it was resolved. Parting left unfinished. Perhaps we will hear more in future books

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Story

    The very best story I have read in years. Not usually my subject but the review hooked me. Literally could not turn it off. The devotion of dog and handler is told so sympathetically.
    Emotional and compelling.

    An old man lies dying during the rainy season in the Queensland outback. And in the night, slipping in and out of an opium sleep that drifts him towards death, he draws his listener into a tale that opens onto incredible horizons.

    Story

    I first read this book in 1962, and have so enjoyed the listening. Nevil Shute is an excellent story-teller, and the narrator Norman Dietz brings forth Mr. Hargreaves just as I had imagined him. You can almost feel the dampness from the constant rain. The Outback in the post-war time, the difficulty of travel, are so vivid. The possible future that is proposed is of course impossible but was interesting at the time of writing.

    It's Sharon McCone's first case as staff investigator for All Souls Legal Cooperative. She knows nothing about antiques, yet she has an affection for Salem Street with its charming mix of antique and curio shops. Now elderly dealer Joan Albritton has been found dead, stabbed with an antique dagger. Her neighbors are shocked. Recurring vandalism has them frightened. Ferreting out the facts will take Sharon from the chaotic jumble of the junk dealer's establishment to a museum where San Francisco's most elegant socialites gather.

    Linda says: "Just couldn't hang in there"
    "The first McCone and still the best"

    Transported from the mid-twentieth century to New York City in the year 1882, Si Morley walks the fashionable "Ladies' Mile" of Broadway, is enchanted by the jingling sleigh bells in Central Park, and solves a 20th-century mystery by discovering its 19th-century roots. Falling in love with a beautiful young woman, he ultimately finds himself forced to choose between his lives in the present and the past. A story that will remain in the listener's memory, Time and Again is a remarkable blending of the troubled present and a nostalgic past....

    Mark says: "Best time travel novel; my very favorite audiobook"
    "Love time travel and Jack Finney."

    Story
    Where does Time and Again rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best stories in my stash and very well told. I still have the original book and have read it three times.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course, Si Morley as the protagonist is so willing to believe that there is something more than this present life. But Rubin Prien can charm the birds.


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

    This is the first experience with Paul Hecht's performance and it is dead on.


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

    Yesterday is just across Central Park


    Any additional comments?

    Also, check out the sequel, From Time To Time, also available in audible's list.
