Detective Inspector Luc Callanach has barely set foot in his new office when Elaine's missing persons case is escalated to a murder investigation. Having left behind a promising career at Interpol, he's eager to prove himself to his new team.

Great story with fast action. keeping the listener in suspense whilst giving us enough information to want to work things out ourselves. Absolutely love stories where we are allowed into the killers twisted mind. allowing us to maybe feel sorry for the killers motive for being so twisted, yet letting us know enough of the background information to think of him as evil and wanting him caught too. loved this performance by the narrator, loved his mastery over the definition between each character. thank you to all involved.

When Wendy Mitchell was diagnosed with dementia at the age of 58, she had to say good-bye to the woman she once was. Her career in the NHS, her ability to drive, cook and run - the various shades of her independence - were suddenly gone. Yet Wendy was determined not to give in. She was, and still is, propelled by a need to live in the moment, never knowing which version of herself might surface tomorrow.

Elantris was built on magic, and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade, and Elantris began to rot. Now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots? Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.
