The Thousand Crimes of Ming Tsu

By Tom Lin
Narrated by: Feodor Chin
Length: 9 hours 37 minutes

The Thousand Crimes of Ming Tsu

“A raucous romp through a nearly lawless post-Civil War American West. Ming Tsu’s story is captivating and impossible to put down; the cast of characters is just too unique to forget or dismiss. A blood-crusted gem of a tale.”

Narrated by: Laurie Woolever, Shep Gordon, Christopher Bourdain, Jen Agg, Matt Walsh, Bill Buford, Claude Tayag, Nari Kye, Vidya Balachander & Steve Albini
Length: 12 hours 11 minutes

World Travel

“Like the cowriter Laurie Woolever, I was initially a little skeptical that the world needed this travel guide, but now that I've sampled it I'm so grateful to have a little bit more of Bourdain in the world. While there is some practical advice here (hotel and restaurant suggestions), what I really love is hearing Bourdain's trademark wry humor and utter irreverence. Take a whirlwind tour around the world from Argentina to Vietnam and dozens of countries in between. ”

Get a Life, Chloe Brown

A Novel
The Brown Sisters: Book #1

By Talia Hibbert
Narrated by: Adjoa Andoh
Length: 10 hours 41 minutes

Get a Life, Chloe Brown

Get a Life, Chloe Brown is such a wonderful, inclusive, body-positive, fun, moving, and steamy book, the kind of novel I want to shove into every person’s hand who says they don’t read romance. Chloe Brown is a plus-size black British woman with chronic illness who is confident, sharp, sarcastic, brilliant, and adorable as hell—and, to my great relief, totally comfortable and happy with her looks and her size. After being temporarily knocked down by her illness, Chloe decides to reclaim her life, so she makes a to-do list: ride a motorcycle, have meaningless sex, go camping, etc. It was such an absolute treat to read a novel about a plus-size woman with a disability having amazing, mind-blowing sex and loving her life. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this book, so instead I will just force everyone I know to read it.”

The Windsor Knot

A Novel
Her Majesty the Queen Investigates: Book #1

By SJ Bennett
Narrated by: Jane Copland
Length: 8 hours 4 minutes

If you enjoyed The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, then you’ll love The Windsor Knot.

“Listening to The Windsor Knot resulted in more than one "driveway moment"-- no matter that I was home, I wanted to hear more! Anyone who misses The Crown on PBS will be more than content with narrator Jane Copland's perfect Queen Elizabeth. An inconvenient death of a dashing Russian pianist following a "dine and sleep" at Windsor Castle appears to be a murder. Local police and official royal investigators explore leads, but they're no match for the intuition of the very clever Queen, and her private secretary Rozie. Corgis, teas, royal equines, Prince Philip cameos and more enhance the mystery. Good news -- it's the first of a series!”

Killer Triggers

Fresh Water for Flowers

By Valérie Perrin
Narrated by: Sara Young
Length: 14 hours 41 minutes

Fresh Water for Flowers

Fresh Water for Flowers encompasses so much in each lovely short chapter. Valérie Perrin has written what could be called the perfect novel. At first glance, Violette Toussaint lives an uncomplicated life as the caretaker of a cemetery in a small town in Burgundy. Just as you relax into the luscious descriptions of the gardens, of the tombstone inscriptions, of the fascinating visitors, several love stories hidden in a mystery or two reveal that there are more than funerals at the heart of this book. Perfection!”

The Book of Accidents

A Novel

By Chuck Wendig
Narrated by: Xe Sands & George Newbern
Length: 16 hours 48 minutes

If you enjoyed It, then you’ll love The Book of Accidents.

“Moving back to Nate’s childhood home, it offers a fresh start for his teenage son and the perfect creative space for his artist of a wife, especially now that Nate’s abusive father is dead. It isn’t too long, however, that memories of his childhood, as well as something entirely supernatural and altogether evil, threatens to harm him and his family. The Book of Accidents is a spooky dark fantasy with the twisty turns of a multiversal thriller (quite popular for the last decade). It reads as a love-letter to all of author Stephen King’s greatest hits, including Pet Sematary, It, and The Stand, but with much more heart, hope, and love. A definite triumph for author Chuck Wendig. Both Xe Sands and George Newbern did spectacular in the narration, adjusting to the various changes in characters like champs and overall making the listening experience as smooth as butter. *Chef’s kiss*”
