An Incantation of Cats Audiobook

An Incantation of Cats

Author: Clea Simon Narrator: Hillary Huber Release Date: February 2020

When two new clients seek Becca's professional services, the fledgling witch detective is overjoyed. Finally, she can use her skills to help her magical community. But as the young witch finds the new cases intertwining, things grow more complicated. Becca's three cats-the ones with the real power-can smell something is wrong with these clients. But not even Clara, the calico, knows what to do when a man ends up dead and a powerful and poisonous root appears-and disappears-in the case. To make matters worse, Clara and her littermates are feuding, and she can't tell them about an unsettling interaction she's had with one of the client's sisters. Is it possible that some humans may have the same powers as the magical felines? What does that mean for Clara's beloved Becca-and for the potent poison that has already taken one person's life?

Bitter Alpine Audiobook

Bitter Alpine

Author: Mary Daheim Narrator: Tanya Eby Release Date: February 2020

After a relatively calm and cozy holiday season, neither Emma Lord, editor and publisher of The Alpine Advocate, nor her husband, Sheriff Milo Dodge, are surprised when their new year gets off to a rocky start. A woman's body has been found in a squalid motel. Her driver's license shows that Dawn Purvis was in her late thirties and lived in Weaverville, California-and the only connection between that town and Alpine is their gold-mining and logging origins. When they discover that Dawn's room reservation was open-ended, Emma, Milo, and the ever-inquisitive Advocate receptionist, Alison Lindahl, are more than mildly curious. And never mind that the youthful Alison is a bit distracted by the new county extension agent's virile good looks. She can still sleuth while she stalks her newest crush. But that's not all the news that's unfit to print. There's something strange about the older couple who have moved into the cabin down the road that was once owned by a murder victim. The elderly wife seems anti-social. There's got to be a reason, which Emma, Milo, and Alison intend to find out-even if it puts them in deadly danger.

A Meditation On Murder Audiobook

A Meditation On Murder

Author: Robert Thorogood Narrator: Phil Fox Release Date: July 2016

An original story from the creator and writer of the hit BBC One TV series, Death in Paradise, featuring on-screen favourite detective, DI Richard Poole. Enhance your enjoyment of the series as, for the first time, Robert Thorogood brings the characters to life on the page in an all-new locked-room mystery. Aslan Kennedy has an idyllic life: leader of a spiritual retreat for wealthy holidaymakers on one of the Caribbean's most unspoilt islands, Saint Marie. Until he's murdered, that is. The case seems open and shut: when Aslan was killed he was inside a locked room with only five other people, one of whom has already confessed to the murder. Detective Inspector Richard Poole is hot, bothered, and fed up with talking to witnesses who'd rather discuss his 'aura' than their whereabouts at the time of the murder. But he also knows that the facts of the case don't quite stack up. In fact, he's convinced that the person who's just confessed to the murder is the one person who couldn't have done it. Determined to track down the real killer, DI Poole is soon on the trail, and no stone will be left unturned. A must read for fans of the TV series and Agatha Christie crime classics featuring Marple and Poirot.

Rest In Peach Audiobook

Rest In Peach

Author: Susan Furlong Narrator: Tiffany Morgan Release Date: March 2020

The annual Peach Cotillion, Cays Mill, Georgia's biggest event, is fast approaching and Nola Mae Harper is just as excited as the rest of the town-even though she's busy juggling both the cotillion dinner and the grand opening of her new shop, Peachy Keen. But she never expected that plans for the cotillion would end up in the pits because of the cutthroat competition between local debutantes. When Vivien Crenshaw, insufferable church organist and despised mother of the town's spoiled-rotten Peach Queen, is stabbed to death, the police turn to Nola's friend Ginny as prime suspect. Apparently the two had fought over a one-of-a-kind cotillion gown. As Nola steps in to prove Ginny's innocence she soon finds herself picking through a bushel of suspects, twice as many motives, and at the mercy of a killer all too keen on killing again.

Ray Santiago's friends from work know him as a brilliant-but-easygoing systems engineer who spends a lot of time on his favorite online role-playing game. But the game is over for Ray: his colleagues from work, Maude, Tim, and Turing, have just found out about Ray's murder in a dark alley. He was shot, and his laptop stolen. It could be just another D.C. street crime. But if Turing's password was in that computer-and it's fallen into the wrong hands-she could be in terrible danger. With Turing's Web-searching powers and Maude's and Tim's access to the outdoors, the trio starts looking into Ray's death, tracing their colleague's life from that fatal night, backspace by backspace. But this project leads to more questions than answers-because Ray seems to have fabricated his life story, even his name. And now their quest is growing even more crucial. For as they sort their way through Ray Santiago's various personas, online and off, danger lurks in the lab-perhaps within the very computer in which Turing lives.
