Just like you, we Editors at Audible have books each month that we just can't wait to get our hands on. Whether it's a favorite author, genre, or narrator, there are some books we'll drop everything to start listening to. So we wanted to share with you the five that have caught our attention the most this month.
With a title like that how can you not be intrigued? Already an international bestseller, Neuhaus's US debut has garnered plenty of pre-release buzz for taking well-worn mystery staples (cold case, small town, unfriendly populace) and artfully weaving them together into something altogether fresh, with a story that keeps readers on their toes till the end. --Michael, Audible Editor
I remember hearing all about Charles Lindbergh and his famous solo transatlantic flight when I was growing up. But I never knew much about his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh. The Aviator's Wife has been a compulsive read so far, and I can't wait to hear Lorna Raver's take on Anne's life, from plain Jane ambassador's daughter to paparazzied wife, copilot, and mother of six. --Diana M., Audible Editor
As someone who frequently daydreams of moving to the other side of the world and learning a foreign language (and most likely never will!), I'm finding this book utterly fascinating. The author touches on the subtleties of language - how one word can have several meanings just by the speakers' tone - and how this impacts her interactions while living in Shanghai and Beijing. There are a lot of observations about language in this book, and I'm eager to hear how the narrator captures the journey of learning both the Mandarin Chinese language and culture. --Jess, Audible Editor
I'm excited to listen to Truth in Advertising because I can't wait to hear Robert Petkoff's narration. Petkoff's performance on Beat the Reaper is what got me hooked on listening, so I have high expectations for author John Kenney's debut. I'm currently reading it, and the book feels a lot like Jonathan Tropper's One Last Thing Before I Go (which I loved) - funny, honest, bittersweet, and real. --Chris, Audible Editor
I listened to Stuart Neville's debut novel, Ghosts of Belfast, 3 years ago, and was totally swept up by his seamless blending of fantasy into an IRA noir thriller. In Neville's next two novels he delivered solid thrills, but they were slightly more traditionally drawn. But when I heard about his newest stand-alone, Ratlines, I knew I had to listen to it. He heads back to his old narrative stomping grounds of an Ireland at war with itself, while bringing in an alternate history element involving Nazi stowaways. It doesn't get more chilling than that! --Emily, Audible Editor
