Murder is for Keeps Audiobook

Murder is for Keeps

Author: Elizabeth J. Duncan Narrator: Anne Flosnik Release Date: May 2017

Local artist and amateur sleuth Penny Brannigan has been spending her summer painting views of the once-lovely Gwrych Castle, which is now in a heartbreaking state of disrepair. So when she hears that one of the locals, Mark Baker, is leading a team of enthusiastic volunteers to restore the castle, she is thrilled. However, after disagreements over how the work should proceed break out, the body of an overbearing volunteer is discovered and Mark is implicated. Convinced that he is innocent, Penny asks Gareth Davies, a recent retiree from the North Wales Police Service, to join her investigation. However, it is surprisingly not Gareth who finds the most important clue: while examining the estate's watercolors, Penny discovers that 90-year-old paintings might hold the key.

Ill Met by Murder

Author: Elizabeth J. Duncan Narrator: Sarah Nichols Release Date: December 2016

It's the most important night of the year for the Catskills Shakespeare Theater Company: the annual fund-raising performance at the country estate of the wealthy widow Paula Van Dusen. And this year promises to be even more special as the company will give a moonlight performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream as part of the wedding celebrations for Paula's daughter, Belinda, and her fiancé Adrian. But "the course of true love never did run smooth," and in the wake of a disastrous after-party, the stage is set for murder. Hugh Hedley, son of a prominent upstate New York family and Adrian's rival in the cutthroat world of high-end Manhattan real estate, is found murdered with a prop stolen from the play. Mrs. Van Dusen is desperate to keep her daughter's name out of the paper, and so Charlotte Fairfax is drawn into a murder case amid her costume-design responsibilities and finding a home for the company's new theater school. Charlotte nevertheless throws herself into an investigation of shady business deals, a missing dog, and long-buried family secrets because "though she be but little, she is fierce!"

But by the end of the day, Catrin turns up dead, her quilt missing. Who could have wanted this shy, quiet woman dead?

Untimely Death: A Shakespeare in the Catskills Mystery Audiobook

Untimely Death: A Shakespeare in the Catskills Mystery

Author: Elizabeth J. Duncan Narrator: Sarah Nichols, Sarah Nicholson Release Date: November 2015

This witty and wise work is the first in Elizabeth J. Duncan’s charming new mystery series. A Catskills resort’s production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet takes a wickedly ironic turn when the leading lady, Lauren Richmond, is first poisoned and then stabbed. Who would extinguish the life of such a beautiful young thespian? It seems like just about everyone had a motive to pull the ropes on her final curtain call. At the center of this Shakespearean tragedy is Charlotte Fairfax, formerly the costume mistress of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Upstate New York is a long way from the royal stage, but Charlotte is always the queen of her domain. As this small production’s costume designer, she has stitched her way into everyone’s lives, learning more than anyone could possibly imagine about the rise and fall of Lauren Richmond. “In a departure from Wales and her Penny Brannigan series, Duncan introduces a charming new sleuth and plenty of quirky characters sure to appeal to her base and to cozy fans in general.”—Kirkus Reviews

Spa owner and habitual amateur sleuth Penny Brannigan finds herself at a clerical conference at Gladstone's Library in North Wales.

At Penny's suggestion, Florence Semble, a friend from Penny's adopted hometown, is invited to the Library to decode the secretary's shorthand notebook in the search for clues. As the conference continues, another body is found in the beautiful library itself, and Penny must once again search for a killer. "Narrator Flosnik turns in a stellar performance, capturing the novel’s atmosphere and its characters. The voices she creates are distinct, appropriately accented, and embody the quirks and nuance of each character, while her narration is well paced and demands listener attention." - Publishers Weekly
