Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris - with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter - and adapted specifically for the audio format by aural auteur Dirk Maggs ( The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Alien: Out of the Shadows), Cold Cases marks yet another thrilling addition to the pantheon of X-Files stories.

True X-Files Mystery Brought to Life Off-Screen
The performance on this Cold Cases adaptation was excellent, and it took little imagination to envision the characters. The story jumps around, so you shouldn't give this a listen with divided attention. Also I don't recommend listening while driving through the night because it does get spooky enough to make seemingly normal people and objects appear ominous at night. I highly recommend this title.

Dead Man's Fancy
- A Sean Stranahan Mystery, Book 3
- By: Keith McCafferty
- Narrated by: Rick Holmes
- Length: 10 hrs and 2 mins
Wolves howl as a riderless horse returns at sunset to the Culpepper Dude Ranch in the Madison Valley. The missing woman, Nanika Martinelli, is better known as the Fly Fishing Venus, a red-haired river guide who lures clients the way dry flies draw trout. As Sheriff Martha Ettinger follows hoof tracks in the snow, she finds one of the men who has fallen under the temptress' spell impaled on the antler tine of a giant bull elk, a kill that' s been claimed by a wolf pack. An accident? If not, is the killer human or animal?
An Unbelievable Story

Great Storyline & Narration
The third in the Sean Stranahan series continues to develop characters and their relationships to one another. There is just enough tension among characters that it's hard to know how relationships will ultimately fall, and that is just one part of why the book is so good.
A great read for those interested in mysteries and who fancy a few twists and turns throughout a story.
