Although the Green Dolphin is a bar of ill repute, it is there that Tancred Palmieri, a thief with elegant and erudite tastes, meets Willow Azarian, an aging heroin addict. She reveals to Tancred that her very wealthy father has recently passed away, leaving each of his five children a mysterious object that provides one clue to the whereabouts of a large inheritance. Willow enlists Tancred to steal these objects from her siblings and solve the puzzle.

I love to listen to contemplations by sensitive people. I love to listen to deep explanation of artistic observation. Listening to this book by Andre Alexis, read by himself, was much like being with him and meeting someone rich in culture and depth of spirit, A calm presence even in The suspenseful and violent moments. I like Tankred and am glad I met him too. I listened to this book because I listened to 15 Dogs and enjoyed the literature and the different perspective. I was not disappointed with this book either and now found another good author to listen too. I hope he reads more of his own. Thank you Andre Alexis.

Case One: A little girl goes missing in the night. Case Two: A beautiful young office worker falls victim to a maniac's apparently random attack. Case Three: A new mother finds herself trapped in a hell of her own making - with a very needy baby and a very demanding husband - until a fit of rage creates a grisly, bloody escape.

This book had such wonderful details leading down the path to the truth of each case I found I had to listen to it again. It was quite a surprise to be because during the first 3 chapters I didn't get the connections. By the end of my first listen I was drawn back to the start to hear all the hints I'd missed not knowing where the story led. It was brilliant!
Case Histories was also read very well by Susan James who's phrasing I enjoyed and relished her small exclamations prepared by the author. I especially enjoyed her character voices for Julia and was haunted by her Olivia voice. Such a wonderful array of characters! So many quirky little connections I enjoyed going back to discover again.

Desperate to escape his mother's matchmaking, Vincent Hunt, Viscount Darleigh, flees to a remote country village. But even there, another marital trap is sprung. So when Miss Sophia Fry's intervention on his behalf finds her unceremoniously booted from her guardian's home, Vincent is compelled to act. He may have been blinded in battle, but he can see a solution to both their problems: marriage. At first, quiet, unassuming Sophia rejects Vincent's proposal. But when such a gloriously handsome man persuades her that he needs a wife of his own choosing as much as she needs protection from destitution, she agrees.

Although this book had a sure amount of suspense, as the couple involved negotiated their way to the truth of their feelings, the overall book was so gratifying it was hard to believe! It's a rare book. I was shocked and delighted by the sensuality shared in its modest consignments making the sexuality all more sexy. A dear dear book. Especially if you want to be deeply satisfied.
