If you could sum up Expired Listings in three words, what would they be?

Shock, Amazed, Enthralled

What was one of the most memorable moments of Expired Listings?

The shock of the opening part of the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Are Real Estate Agents really safe selling homes?????

Any additional comments?


The beginning of the story made me sit down in shock. Wow then the story flowed. There were some Kinky BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, sadism, Masochism) in the first third of the book then it spiralled wonderfully with clues to who was murdering the local Realtors one after the other after the other. Who would be next to be found murdered.

I enjoyed listening to this audio. I felt quite close to Dana the lead character I really want to help sort her out. Fast pace, intriguing and completely unpredictable definitely a must listen.

Would you listen to Life's a Bitch. So am I. again? Why?

This is the first gay PI story I've ever read. Very interesting with insights into the problem of gay bashing in our society. Great story line, fast-action and brilliant tight prose.
I finished the book in four days. Now that it is out in audio on audible bought it again and enjoyed it all over again.

Beyond Belief by Helen Smith is an entertaining light fast audible listen. . Conference set in Torquay, Edmund Zenon has offered fifty thousand pounds to who can prove that paranormal is real. There cast of characters are diverse and the story is fast flowing.

A Murder mystery with humour thrown in. A must listen to this audible story.

Fast pace worth buying, January 23, 2010
By Barbara Lane "Audio Books only" (Sydney Australia)

Dr. Peter Hobson, scientist discovers that there is a current in the brain that escapes at the moment of death he chooses to interpret it as the soul. Of course, this discovery opens all kinds of discussion from the most scientific to the most extreme religious groups.

When he and an old Muslim schoolmate and friend decide to create simulations of his brain to test their theories on the soul. They put it on the computer and find that cannot be eliminated despite all their high tech knowledge. With three simulations loose on the Internet they do Peter's deep thoughts, things become frightening and desperate.

Add to all this Peter's dilemma over his wife's infidelity and you have a futuristic mystery with drama, stress and ethics problems thrown in. This is a thoroughly entertaining story. A fast pace story, it is also thought-provoking and intelligent.

It's a great story. Run and buy it!!!!!

One of my favourite stories EVER

Lois Bujold is a brilliant writer. I loved the characters, flaws and all, I became wrapped up in their lives. While I was listening everything around me disappeared. The Authors descriptions say so much in so few words. The story just picked me up and took me along. There are such strong relationships between so many of the characters it seemed to add magic to the story.
I would have to say this story is now up there with my favourites of all my listening.
