'Til Death Audiobook

'Til Death

Author: Ed McBain Narrator: Dick Hill Release Date: April 2012

The wedding day of Detective Steve Carella's sister Angela should be the most romantic, special day of her life. But it might turn out to be the worst if her brother can't figure out which man on the guest list has come to murder the groom. Carella and the men from the 87th Precinct find themselves on the clock as they desperately hunt amongst the name cards and catered dinners for the would-be assailant. Trouble is, the crowd has numerous people with viable motives: the best man who stands to inherit everything the groom owns, the ex-boyfriend with a homicidal crush, and even an ex-GI with a score to settle. But time is ticking, and if they don't act fast, Angela will become a bride-and a widow-on the same day. Another riveting installment of the 87th Precinct series, 'Til Death is one of bestseller Ed McBain's finest, an intense, life-and-death nerve-wracker hailed by the Literary Review as "zestful, inventive, and utterly compulsive."

Author: Ed McBain Narrator: Luke Daniels Release Date: October 2012

Matthew Hope is a divorce lawyer in the town of Calusa, Florida, where the Gulf waters are warm and the women on the beach topless.

After making a statement with the cops saying her husband did it, her body is found on the beach, burned beyond recognition. George N. Harper is a hulking man with pockmarks, flaring nostrils, and rheumy eyes - the ugliest accused man Matthew has ever seen. But something's not quite right about the case - Harper loved his wife. Yet the cops and lawyers are ready to hang the man who could extinguish such a beautiful woman, and it's up to Matthew to prove his innocence. An instant classic in the Matthew Hope series from Ed McBain, Beauty and the Beast pairs the good-hearted lawyer with a client who tests his prejudices and proves beauty may be skin deep, but ugly is in the bones.

Candyland: A Novel In Two Parts Audiobook

Candyland: A Novel In Two Parts

Author: Ed McBain, Evan Hunter Narrator: Mark Blum Release Date: January 2001

While Evan Hunter is known for his powerful novels and screenplays, Ed McBain is known for portraying the soul of the cop. With Candyland, they join for the first time to write a single story -- a powerful novel of obsession. Benjamin Thorpe is married, a father, a successful Los Angeles architect -- and a man obsessed. Alone in New York City on business, he spends the empty hours of the night in search of female companionship. His dizzying descent leads to an early morning confrontation in a midtown bordello and a searing self-revelation. Part I of Candyland follows Benjamin's fever-pitched search for identity, told in classic Evan Hunter style. Part II is pure Ed McBain territory. Three detectives discuss a homicide. The victim is a young prostitute who crossed Benjamin Thorpe's path the night before. Emma Boyle of the Special Victims Unit gets assigned to the case. As the foggy events of the previous night come into sharper focus, it grows clear that Thopre is a potential suspect. The detailed police investigation is Ed McBain at top form. Shocking, bold and compulsively engaging, Candyland is a groundbreaking literary event.

Having hired Otto to watch a cheating husband for a client, Matthew is now left with only Otto's tape recorder, filled with proof of an affair. But could the evidence lead to something larger, something that would drive a man to kill? Meanwhile, a mysterious woman is on the run, her face and name unknown to all except two stepsisters who couldn't care less if a violent pair of Cubans got their hands on her. If Matthew can decipher the clues in Otto's evidence, there's a chance he could reach the girl first and save her life.
