    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "The Perfect Wife or Femme Fatale?"

    Written by the author of "Laura," this is another perfect example of "that which you most desire will destroy you." The gist of it is the perfect wife may also be a serial killer. I liked especially, the depiction of what it meant to be perfect and wealthy, and how one must pay for that perfection in the popular mind of the 1940s. Moody, glamorous, and creepy, I enjoyed every minute of it!
