Mexican Gothic

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

Mexican Gothic

“A bit spooky with some underlining themes of science and the power of racism. There’s a feel of modern Bronte sisters here which adds to the intrigue of this original gothic tale. I loved Noemi, the well-educated bright young protagonist who has a great sense of justice and can stare down evil all while being sophisticated and alluring. Great listening!”

The Last House on Needless Street

By Catriona Ward
Narrated by: Christopher Ragland
Length: 11 hours 49 minutes

The Last House on Needless Street

“This book was creepy! Ward weaves an intriguing and disturbing tale that at every page has you internally screaming for more (and also mouthing WTF IS HAPPENING). It's weird but clever and the wrap up is unexpected in the traditional horror/thriller world (though some may begin to suspect early on). In audiobook format, this tale lends itself to a terrifying, breath-holding experience as the narrator Christopher Ragland and author Caitriona Ward leave a trail that you can't help but follow though you know there can't be rainbows and puppies at the end.”

No One Goes Alone

A Novel
A Random House Audiobook Original

By Erik Larson
Narrated by: Julian Rhind-Tutt & Erik Larson
Length: 7 hours 35 minutes

No One Goes Alone

“I have to say that this was an absolute pleasure to listen to! A motley group of people from different industries and walks travels to a remote 'cottage' to investigate strange occurrences there. They soon find themselves stranded, their boat missing, presumed stolen. And then things get really odd! At first, they reach time and again for a logical explanation for the events. And yet, it soon becomes very clear that there are no logical explanations to be had. This is such a fun story! It is a bit of a slow burn, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. And narrator Julien Rhind-Tutt does a fantastic job! As someone who adores the Victorian tradition of Christmas Eve ghost stories, I have to add that this would make a perfect holiday gift!”
