Local Woman Missing

By Mary Kubica
Narrated by: Brittany Pressley, Jennifer Jill Araya, Gary Tiedemann & Jesse Vilinsky
Length: 11 hours 40 minutes

Local Woman Missing

“This domestic thriller has serious true crime vibes, introducing a cast of well-rounded characters (some of whom are, or were, missing women). Kubica crafts multiple strings of mystery and ties them up perfectly. I especially enjoyed the inclusion of a lesbian couple in the main cast, as the thriller genre rarely features queer people whose stories aren't directly related to their queerness. The first chapter will absolutely hook you and the following events will refuse to let you go.”

Rock Paper Scissors

A Novel

By Alice Feeney
Narrated by: Richard Armitage & Stephanie Racine
Length: 10 hours 21 minutes

If you enjoyed One by One, then you’ll love Rock Paper Scissors.

“This book is gripping, twisty, and perfectly read by Armitage and Racine. If you are in the mood for a story that will, amazingly, having you rooting for the main characters while simultaneously marveling at the terrible history they've made together, this is the book for you. The snowstorm that hits their isolated rental at the book's beginning sets the stage for this marriage's showdown. Feeney has crafted a compelling thriller to listen to in winter, while waiting for the days to get longer and the dark to fade away.”

An Elderly Lady Is Up to No Good

By Helene Tursten
Narrated by: Suzanne Toren
Length: 3 hours 12 minutes

An Elderly Lady Is Up to No Good

“Refreshingly original, with great pacing, fascinating character development, and surprisingly funny charm in each short story. After almost 90 years of life, Maud delights in living life her way: splitting time between exploring the world and living in her rent-free apartment, alone. When someone - a selfish artist, the upstairs wife-beating neighbor, a gold-digger, or a shifty antiques dealer - threatens Maud’s lifestyle, well, that just won’t do. They’ll have to go. Luckily for Maud, no one suspects an elderly lady to be up to no good.”

A Slow Fire Burning

A Novel

By Paula Hawkins
Narrated by: Rosamund Pike
Length: 9 hours 19 minutes

A Slow Fire Burning

“This is a slow burning novel, as the title suggests. It has lots of unlikeable and unreliable characters, it jumps around a lot, it has at least one bona fide murder and maybe some others that weren’t really accidents. Despite all of this you just must keep listening because the writing is superb, the narration is brilliant, the atmosphere is intoxicating, and it all comes together in a very satisfying manner.”
