Murder Off the Page Audiobook

Murder Off the Page

Author: Con Lehane Narrator: Wayne Mitchell Release Date: November 2019

A note from bartender Brian McNulty, Raymond Ambler's friend, confidant, and sometimes adviser, sets the librarian sleuth off on a murder investigation, one that he pursues reluctantly until a second murder upends the world as he knows it. The second victim is a lady friend of McNulty's-and the prime suspect is McNulty himself. As Ambler pursues his investigation, he discovers that the murdered woman had a double life. Her intermittent visits to the city-a whirlwind of reckless drinking and illicit liaisons with men she met in the cocktail lounges-had their counterpart in suburban Fairfield County Connecticut where, as Dr. Sandra Dean, she practiced dermatology and lived in a gated community with a doting husband and a young daughter. While Ambler looks into the past of Dr. Sandra Dean to understand the murder of Shannon Darling in the present, NYPD homicide detective Mike Cosgrove investigates the men in Shannon Darling's life. She might have been murdered because she frustrated the wrong man. It could have been a jealous wife. In fact, any number of people might have murdered Shannon Darling. Or, as Ambler suspects, did someone murder Dr. Sandra Dean? Yet, no matter which way he turns, McNulty emerges as a suspect. Ambler's dilemma seems insurmountable: Should he keep searching for the truth behind the murders if the deeper he probes, the more evidence he finds that points to the morally rumpled bartender as a murderer?

Author: Slmn Narrator: Mishi Lachappelle Release Date: November 2019

Alibi Island is a legendary paradise hidden away deep in international waters. The only law is money. Sex, drugs, murder. You've got to pay to play, but it's all fair game if you're rich enough. On Alibi Island, the rich and famous are kings. Back in America they're just rich-they're surrounded by the cult of celebrity their wealth brings, but they can never be themselves. They can never indulge in their darkest desires and let the beast that is their true nature out. The place is legendary. Few ever get the black and gold card inviting them to indulge, and fewer still can afford the stay. But there is a dark side to paradise. The island is the hub of a human trafficking operation that sees children stolen from their families in India and Asia, and even familiar faces from milk cartons in the United States. Every taste and perversion needs to be catered to on the Island. And when the young sex slaves are finally broken and used up, they become fair game in a murderous hunt where, with nowhere to go, they are forced to run for their lives. Alibi Island is a lucrative business. What happens on the island stays on the island. That's the promise. But it is a lie. Everything that happens is recorded. All of that footage becomes blackmail material down the line, as the island's secret power brokers look to cement their stranglehold on power. And when a senator's daughter's disappearance is linked to the island, all of its darkest secrets are at risk ...
