Summary

Pick Up Sticks: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!* 

This is the 11th of 37 Emma Lathen best sellers and features John Putnam Thatcher, SVP of the Sloan Guaranty Trust. When Thatcher and his friend Henry Morland set off hiking the Appalachian Trail, they hardly expected to stumble over a dead body. Nor did real-estate promoters Eddie Quinlan and Ralph Valenti plan to play hosts to a murderer at their luxurious new development in New England. Now Thatcher must again combine his financial skills and limitless curiosity to investigate the murder of a man nobody seemed to dislike enough to kill. Great fun, with wit and humor that only Emma Lathen can add to a mystery. Truly the American Agatha Christie. 

Booktrack is an immersive listening experience that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music and sound effects. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout. 

Please note: The audio for this title has noise issues at the beginning and end of each file/chapter.
