Product Description

From AudioFile

Female sleuths are hot right now, so this anthology should be a winner, especially in audio. These selections showcase eight female mystery writers, all masters of their craft: Wheat, Fraser, Cody, Grafton, Dunlap, Hart, Pickard and Paretsky. Whether tracking vagrants in the New York subway or resisting rape or exposing murderers, each sleuth has more than enough brains and courage to challenge any male in the business. Suspense mounts as two skilled narrators dramatize the action. Although the narrative style of both readers is understated, and one is very like the other, dual narration may be the wise choice with so many characters in so many stories. J.C.

Fun audio collection July 13 2005
By K. J. Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So this is a fun audio collection -edited by Sara Paretsky, part of the Great Mystery Series. Includes 4 audio tapes with 8 mysteries.

Narrators are Lorri Holt and Gina Leishman- 1st is American, second is English. Ms Leishman's English accent is ideal for the stories here by some of the United Kingdom's best mystery talent.

Stories are listed here:

1. Settled Score by Sara Paretsky - this one is also included on Skin Deep read by Kathleen Turner- I prefer the Turner reading for the grittier turn she gives to V.I Warshawski.

2. The Scar by Nancy Pickard

3. Lucky Dip by Liza Cody- this is great! Has an English street urchin finding a huge treasure on a dead man and then having to scramble through the London streets to keep her bounty.

4. Full Circle by Sue Grafton- a Kinsey Milhone short story

5. Death & Diamonds by Susan Dunlap- done well here- this is a great short story. Also available in "Crime's Leading Ladies" and read by Sharon Gless.

6. Her Good Name by Carolyn Hart

7. Ghost Station by Carolyn Wheat- scary story with the NYC subways as setting

8. Getting to Know You by Antonia Fraser

Female Sleuths Jan. 15 2007
By Emma the Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Good audio book that would have been more interesting with different readers for the books. The same voice playing different roles took away from the stories which were very inviting. This was especially the case for the book by the alphabet murder author. I am so drawn to the voice of Kinsey Milhone in her books that this new voice did not match personality of this detective.
