In 1948, when elderly Anna Homeyer and her much younger husband, Charles, decided to sell their home in the Bronx and move to Pennsylvania, residents of the small town of Factoryville couldn't understand why. With no family or friends in the area, the isolated little village seemed an odd choice for strangers to relocate to. But Factoryville warmly welcomed their new neighbors, who seemed eager to fit in - at first. Soon, however, the Homeyers' pleasant disposition began to change. Anna, once highly visible and engaging, was rarely seen at all anymore, and Charles, who was always kind and neighborly, became distant and withdrawn. Local residents were baffled by their behavior. But their curiosity soon turned to suspicion when Anna Homeyer suddenly disappeared, leaving the town with a number of unanswered questions: Why was Charles Homeyer, a married man, receiving numerous lonely hearts magazines and scores of letters from unattached women all over the country? Why was he burning his wife's clothing and selling off her personal belongings? Why did he leave Factoryville, only to return with his wife's most cherished possession? Where was Anna? And what was that foul, putrid odor billowing from the Homeyers' chimney?

Haven't read it.
Nothing too compelling just a solid true crime.
He was great!
No. It was funny how stupid the guy is.
This is just an easy listen. Interesting true crime. Nothing extraordinary, but good.
Would not be happy to see him as a narrator on another book I was interested in. Voice is very husky and sounds like he has smoked way too many cigarettes.
Really didn't do the victim any justice. Author made the life of the cat more interesting than the characters in this mess-terpiece.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
NEVER READ THE WRITTEN BOOK
VERY WELL READ
TRUE CRIME HAS NOT TIDBITS.
IF I COULD GO TO DINNER WITH ANY CHARACTER IT WOULD BE THE CAT MICKY.
