I have a hard time listening to audio books because I can't "listen" to the reader, my mind wonders and then I have to back track and find out what I missed. There are 3 audio books I would like to recommend others to read for a couple of reasons: 1. I really really liked these 3 stories and 2. If I completed the book on audio it must have been read well. The first book I ever listened to was 52 pick up by Elmore Leonard read by Ed Asner, the next book I will suggest (audio or book) Obsessed by Ted Dekker read by Rob Lamont and the audio I'm finishing now that inspired this entry - Sweeney Todd and the String of Pearls by Yuri Rasovsky read by The Hollywood Theater of the Ear. The description calls it an audio melodrama...it is hard to describe but the characters come alive and the voices of the characters are great. Listen to any of these and you will not be disappointed.

The new novel featuring DI Tom Thorne is a fast paced serial killer investigation. Will Thorne be able to find the killer before the list of victims has no more names? Just as you think you have everything figured out you'll discover you were wrong. With each new book Billingham proves why he is one of the top British writers. You won't be able to read just one.

Easily the best John Cleaver story yet. Exciting and creepy. It will keep you turning pages to find out how it ends. Although the end of the trilogy I've heard Mr. Wells has other books in the works and we will be seeing more works from him in 2012. I highly recommend this series....Mr. Monster, I am not a serial killer and I don't want to kill you by Dan Wells.
