Publisher's Summary

Bite into this delectable collection of "whodunits" from some of today's hottest mystery writers. Whet your appetite with Sara Paretsky's "Skin Deep," in which V.I. "Vic" Warshawski takes on a chi-chi salon after one of its clients turns up dead. For your next course, try Wendy Hornsby's award-winning "Nine Sons," a country schoolteacher's recollection of a gifted student whose farm life was more troubled than it seemed. And for dessert, treat yourself to Barbara Michaels's "The Runaway," which tells of 2 sisters who flee from home - and head straight into the arms of terror. Other menu choices include chilling delights from Loren D. Estleman, Joan Hess, Sharyn McCrumb, Marcia Muller, Barbara Paul, Nancy Pickard, and Bill Pronzini.

an ok listen

Some of the narrators are so flat that even in stories with only three characters, it was sometimes difficult to figure out which character was speaking. The stories themselves ranged from entertaining to predictable - but the narration was sometimes so irritating that it was difficult to notice the stories at all.

Great First Listen

For anyone interested in crime, these short stories provide a great introduction to audiobooks showing a range of authors and narrators and how their stories can be transformed through the magic of audible. The stories are great too.
