These Women

A Novel

By Ivy Pochoda
Narrated by: Bahni Turpin & Frankie Corzo
Length: 9 hours

These Women

“Three words: Feminist. Serial Killer. Noir. (Okay, so that was four words.) These Women reads like classic L.A. noir, but Ivy Pochoda adds a level of sensitivity that elevates it far above typical crime fiction, giving voice to a grieving mom, current and former sex workers, and a female police detective whose career is falling apart. In one way or another, all of them are victims, but none of them are just victims. Unlike so many books in the genre, the women are fully formed, complex characters, who are making difficult choices with their eyes open, even as they are constantly being cornered by their circumstances. This book is as powerful as any work of literary fiction, and as gripping as any mystery novel.”

The Push

A Novel

By Ashley Audrain
Narrated by: Marin Ireland
Length: 8 hours 37 minutes

If you enjoyed Gone Girl, then you’ll love The Push.

“For a time, every single domestic thriller writer was called the next Gillian Flynn, and, having read dozens of them, I can say that I have finally found the writer who is actually as good—maybe better. In The Push, Audrain doesn't do that twist you never see coming, but for good reason—she wants you to see it coming so that you experience every last ounce of dread along the way. But first and foremost, Flynn's writing is about the sharp style and distinctive narrative voice, and that's what you get with Audrain's first novel: someone who knows her craft, and a narrator from whom you cannot look away. She explores our darkest, most unspeakable instincts without flinching. This is the most powerful and most literary thriller I've read in a very long time.”

Conviction

By Denise Mina
Narrated by: Cathleen McCarron
Length: 9 hours 45 minutes

Conviction

“This standalone Denise Mina novel is one of her very best, which is saying a lot for this massively talented crime writer. Not only is it gripping and page-turning and all of the other -ings that a thriller should be, it also has drop-dead fierce sentences: she describes someone's laugh as "so dark and wild you could drown bags of kittens in it." (Now say that again in your head with a thick Scottish brogue.) The characters are gloriously flawed and sympathetic. And on top of all of that, it also manages to explore in some depth the very art and impact of storytelling: whose stories get told to whom and how, and what that means for those who are too frequently silenced.”

Generation Loss

The Cass Neary Crime Novels: Book #1

By Elizabeth Hand
Narrated by: Carol Monda
Length: 9 hours 20 minutes

Cass Neary made her name in the seventies as a photographer embedded in the burgeoning punk movement in New York City. Her pictures of the musicians and the hangers-on, the infamous, the damned, and the dead, earned her a brief moment of fame.

Thirty years later she is adrift, on her way down, and almost out when an old acquaintance sends her on...

Lady in the Lake

A Novel

By Laura Lippman
Narrated by: Susan Bennett
Length: 10 hours 43 minutes

Lady in the Lake

“Lady In The Lake is a sultry mystery with a noir vibe. Set in the 60's, it covers the world of newspapers, race and class, and a woman striving for independence and purpose. Lippman is an ace at flawed characters and she always keeps me guessing. Narration on the audio was astounding. And I have a musical pairing: Etta James' "Sunday Kind of Love". ”

A Slow Fire Burning

A Novel

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

A Slow Fire Burning

A Slow Fire Burning is full of clever twists, furnishes you with a steady stream of possible clues to keep your brain working, and tells each character's story in a way that I found deeply satisfying. It pushed all the right buttons for me for both a good British mystery and a good psychological thriller, and I especially loved spending a couple of days in its picturesque setting along the Regent's Canal in London.”
