What the Critics Say

"It's the naiveté of the people who plot the 'perfect murder' who keep you in the business of writing fascinating books about their mistakes and keep people like me rushing to the bookstores to read the books." (Michael Stone, M.D., forensic psychiatrist, Columbia University)

Fanning picks another loser narrator.

I must say I have no idea whether POISONED is a good story or not. The sing-song narrator, Shelby Lewis, seems to have taken singing lessons instead of speaking proper tone to fit the story. Tried several times to listen but couldn't get past the narrator. Pay attention, Fanning, to whom you're hiring. Listen to this narrator and you'll instantly understand my comments.

A Poisoned Passion

What made the experience of listening to A Poisoned Passion the most enjoyable?

The narrator did a good job. I read true crime books a lot and this wasn't one of my top 10 but I definatly enjoyed the read.

What did you like best about this story?

Diane Fanning is one of my favorite authors. She does a great job of delivering the facts of the case in True Crime books.

What does Shelby Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Shelby Lewis did a good job narrating the book. I am able to listen on my one hour commute to and from work.
