Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
There are two stories blended together with Jance's usual skill and make an exciting read
What other book might you compare Left for Dead to and why?
Left For Dead is another great book by J.A. Jance, her seventh in the Ali Reynolds Mysteries. In all of J.A. Jance's books there is a strong sense of family, not just in the stories plot but in your reading experience. This sense of family is increased when you read another book in the series so my recommendation is to read others in the series as well.
What about Karen Ziemba’s performance did you like?
Easy to listen too

This is my second book by this author and I have figured out her pattern. She puts two stories in each book, even though they have nothing to do with each other. Then she wanders around her extended family and their doings (not that interesting). Ali and her nun friend solve the crimes. Done.
These are interesting but sometimes a bit far-fetched, like Mrs. Polifax, but not as funny. There are much better crime writers around. However, Jance has quite a following, and I may continue listening like you sometimes watch TV just to be mind-numbed.
This whole nun thing has me puzzled. Is there an order of nuns that does not use first names, names that are given or chosen when the woman takes her vows? You know, like Sister Mary Clarence, Mother Teresa, Sister Beatrice? I know that for banking purposes, all nuns have surnames, but when called "Sister," I have not heard them called "Sister Lastname" only Sister Firstname. I am not asking how their names are chosen because that varies within the orders; I am asking where Sister Anselm's name comes from. It seems to be her own, her surname, and sometimes she uses two surnames. The other sisters in her convent seem to use first names. Please let me know so I can stop thinking Jance got it all wrong.
Narrator is passable. Her Latino honest citizens as well as the hoodlums sounded like either Brooklyn Jews or movie Mafiosos, but not like anything they should sound like.
