    The Lost Witness: A Lena Gamble Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Robert Ellis
    • Narrated By Deanna Hurst

    Lena Gamble is an LAPD cop held in disgrace by department higher-ups for the explosive way her last case played out, though she's still hailed as a hero by her colleagues for catching the killer. For her punishment, she hasn't handled a real murder investigation in eight months. When the chief finally tosses her a case, she's thrilled until she gets a look at the scene and realizes he's probably setting her up to be exiled once and for all: the victim is unidentified, and there are no witnesses, and no leads.

    Murder Season: Lena Gamble, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 39 mins)
    • By Robert Ellis
    • Narrated By Coleen Marlo
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Detective Lena Gamble knows how to handle the hottest cases - do it fast and keep her head down because if it all goes south, the department won’t hesitate to make a scapegoat out of her. So when she gets called to the scene of a double murder at Club 3 AM, the A-list hangout for Hollywood celebs, she knows the fun is only beginning. And she's not wrong. It's just much worse than that. As expected, one of the victims is club owner Johnny Bosco, one of the most well-connected men in Hollywood politics.
