An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As usual, this was another great story. The only thing I would change is the narrator's reading of Holly. I don't quite understand why he portrayed her with such a halting voice but overall, this was an enjoyable listen!

Four Rooms, Upstairs - a finalist for the Next Generation Indie Book Award - is the story of Linda Appleman Shapiro, an immigrant daughter who grew up on the top floor of a small home in 1940s Brooklyn, and struggled to understand her mentally ill mother. For years Linda tried to ignore the phases when her mother was "not herself." As the youngest child and only girl, Linda spent many days at home alone with her mother, watching her battle memories of loss and despair, unable to cope.

Eventhough the author and I are years apart...I was born 1958, the story was so much like what I had experienced that is was as if someone took a snapshot of my early life! Great story and very good narration.

As a young boy, Bob had been drawn to the property, and, just when the family decided to move back to Brentwood, it went up for sale. Without a second thought, they purchased the house that Bob had always dreamed of owning. But the family soon began experiencing strange phenomena - objects moving on their own, ghostly footsteps, unsettling moaning sounds - that gradually increased in violence, escalating to physical assaults and, most disturbingly, bleeding walls.
