    The glorious Phryne Fisher returns to the spotlight in her seventh adventure. Fisher is an independent, unconventional PI with competence, unflappability and flamboyance in equal measures.

    Running late to the Hinkler gala performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, she meets some thugs in a dark alley and handles them convincingly before they can ruin her silver dress. Phryne then finds that she has rescued a gorgeous Chinese, Lin Chung, and his grandmother, and is briefly mistaken for a deity.

    Another solid entry in the Fisher series. Stephanie Daniel is a fabulous match for these mysteries. Fabulously entertaining! When I re-listen it is like visiting an old friend. More Phryne please!

  • Murder in the Dark: A Phryne Fisher Mystery

    The delectable Phryne Fisher has been invited to the Last Best party of 1928. When three of the guests are kidnapped, Phryne finds she must puzzle her way through the scavenger hunt clues to retrieve the hostages. This is another sparkling mystery from Australia's Queen of Crime, Kerry Greenwood.

    Overall

    I think this is the strongest of the Fisher mysteries. Masterful narration once again by Stephanie Daniel. I have downloaded all of the titles available in this series and I highly recommend. Fun period mysteries that are well-paced, easy to listen to, and not too fluffy. A solid notch above typical chick-lit romances.

    Elizabeth Peters has attracted a huge following of listeners with her ability to deliver snappy stories, witty dialogue, and appealing characters. In Naked Once More, Peters creates a heroine you won't soon forget, the flamboyant Jacqueline Kirby, popular author and outspoken ex-librarian.

    "My favorite Peters/Michaels book"
    Overall

    I have read all of the Peters and Barbara Michaels novels and this is my favorite. Witty, fun, and well-paced. If you have any experience in the publishing industry, consider this a must read. I have listened to the version done by Grace Conlin, and this is superior.

  • Sons and Lovers

    Sons and Lovers, Lawrence's third published novel, was written by the author at the height of his literary powers. The story of class differences (the relationship between a middle-class woman and a miner) in the tough world of coal mining brought a refreshing realism to literature. It remains a challenging text and is studied widely. It is particularly effective on audiobook in the hands of Nottinghamshire reader Paul Slack.

    "a few glitches with the recording"
    Overall

    There are a few glitches with this recording- a handful of passages are repeated. However, I enjoy Lawrence and I thought the narrator did a wonderful job- accents were very well done and characters were easy to distinguish.
