Loni Ann, Cynthia, Lauren, Cheryl, and Sara seemed to have it all - beauty, wealth, children, and a husband who they believed to be this perfect man - Brad Cunningham. He was handsome, charismatic, and mysterious. They adored him and tried to give him all he wanted. But he wanted everything: sex, money, and it seemed, their very lives. How long would it take before he finally got what he deserved?

I will just say that I have more than several Ann Rule novels in my audible library that I love, but this one is about such a really unsympathetic and sadistic murderer that it is almost hard to listen.

I will finish listening but once done, I will be deleting this one from my library and my phone. It just makes me feel very disturbed and at loose ends because the guy is really awful.

I have some sympathy for the ex-wives but not as much as I should.

The complete collection of landmark BBC Radio dramas of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe mysteries. Philip Marlowe is the archetypal noir detective: wisecracking and world weary, hard boiled yet honourable. This volume includes all eight dramatisations of Raymond Chandler's groundbreaking crime novels featuring his iconic hero.

Would you listen to Raymond Chandler: The BBC Radio Drama Collection again? Why?

These are really great adaptations of Raymond Chandler's novels. Very well done! These are awesome. Very atmospheric with great acting and sound effects. HIGHLY recommended, especially if you are a fan of noir.

What other book might you compare Raymond Chandler: The BBC Radio Drama Collection to and why?

None. These are stand alone. These are, by far, the best adaptations I have ever heard of Raymond Chandler's Phillip Marlowe novels.

Which character – as performed by Toby Stephens – was your favorite?

Phillip Marlowe, of course

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Whole thing was great!
