Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Narrator Je Nie Fleming’s soft voice is a good match for the mystery audiobook. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss And Now She’s Gone, a story about Grayson Sykes, a new private eye excited for her first serious case: finding a doctor’s missing ex-girlfriend. Fleming highlights Gray’s frustrations at making rookie mistakes, her growing suspicion of foul play, and her conflicted feelings for her male boss. Fleming adds intensity to the dialogue as Gray gets closer to the truth. The story deals with tough themes, which are thoughtfully woven into the fast-paced mystery, making the experience of listening to the audiobook even stronger.
