Publisher's Summary

This anthology of suspense showcases 5 renowned American mystery writers. The mixture begins with Lucky Day, by Mary Higgins Clark (narrated by Betsy Palmer). It's the story of a young bride who suspects her husband is somehow involved in a strange disappearance. Trapped, by Dean R. Koontz (narrated by Bess Armstrong), takes you into the darkest depths of terror as he explores the psychology of both sides of the human hunt. In Pastime, by Robert B. Parker (narrated by David Dukes), Spenser comes to the aid of a boy he once straightened out. Carol Higgins Clark narrates her own story, Snagged, in which private eye Regan Reilly follows a trail of murder and deceit at a pantyhose convention. Finally, Dealer's Choice, by Sara Paretsky (narrated by Elliott Gould), pays homage to Raymond Chandler by bringing back Philip Marlowe to investigate a case.

Audio quality a let-down

Though I'm a fan of these authors, the quality of this audiobook is below Audible's normal high standards. I'd recommend choosing another book. Audible, you might consider removing it from your line-up (or at least seeing to the audio quality).

Waste of a credit!!

I could not understand the last story because it was taped so quietly and was very muffled sounding. I tried deleting it and downloading it again, but nothing worked. Carol Higgins Clark read her own story and still could not make it interesting. She definitely does not have the talent of her mother!
