Roger Ascham and the King’s Lost Girl by Matthew Reilly

mr roger ascham kings lost girl

In this special prequel to Matthew Reilly’s The Tournament, Roger Ascham, the unorthodox tutor of Princess Elizabeth, is charged with tracking down a favourite prostitute of King Henry VIII’s who has gone missing.

Although a bit grizzly towards the end, I found that I did enjoy this mystery from Matthew Reilly.

Matthew has taken Princess Elizabeth (I) real tutor and woven a tale of mystery that is very good, with for me anyway the likable character of Roger Ascham.

This was a really good mystery with a good set of characters and well plotted and written.

I know Matthew has written The Tournament as the next full length mystery, but I would love to see more Roger Ascham novels and short stories in the future.

This was the audio edition that was an Audible UK ‘members’ freebie.

Ayres on the Air 2 by Pam Ayres

pam ayres

Writer, poet, entertainer and broadcaster Pam Ayres has been delighting the nation with her mix of comic poetry, prose and droll observations on life for over 20 years. This release is taken from Pam’s live shows.

Pam Ayres has the droll wit and prose that I just love.  She is a delight to listen to.  Includes some sketches .  The series was originally made for BBC Radio 4.

She will brighten your day and make you laugh.

In time I will get the all the series.  I have listen to this a couple of times, and keep coming back for more.

Mrs. Zant and the Ghost by Wilkie Collins

wc zant ghost

A short supernatural tale from Wilkie Collins.

Mrs. Zant and the Ghost is a story of loss and renewal.  Belief in the hereafter.

While Mr. Rayburn and his young daughter are in Kensington Gardens, they witness a woman who looks disturbed.  Not wishing the lady to come to any harm, Mr. Rayburn follows her home and the tale unfolds.

I really enjoyed this short story from Wilkie Collins, it had just the right touches to hold you and keep you turning the pages.  And it definitely helped having the sultry tones of Gillian Anderson as the narrator.

The audiobook is at a lower price than the Kindle edition, and well worth listening to.

Tails, You Lose (Witch City Mystery #2) by Carol J. Perry

cjp tails

What can I say…I just love this series.

From the characters to the location, everything blends in beautiful in these well crafted, plotted and written Witch City mysteries.

This was my second reading and my tarot cards say that it won’t be the last!  And you know River is very rarely wrong.

If you haven’t tried this series yet, you are missing out!  So why not go grab a copy of the first book ‘Caught Dead Handed’ and see what the future holds in your tea leaves?

Masked Ball at Broxley Manor (Her Royal Spyness 0.5) by Rhys Bowen

rb-masked-ball

What Ho old beans!  Here’s the prequel to the Royal Spyness series.

It is October 1929 and Lady Georgiana Rannoch (Georgie to her friends) is 19 years old and has just finished her season without snaring a husband.  She and her family are staying at their London residence Rannoch House, when Georgie receives not one, but two invitations.  The first is to a masked ball at Broxley Manor where the elite set gather, like her cousin David (Edward VIII), and the second is an invite from the Queen, which has really got up her sister-in-law Figs nose, as she hasn’t been invited to either!

The penny drops when on the way home from the Palace, she realises that the royal family intends to marry her off to a foreign prince, one reputed to be mad.

At Broxley Manor the fun begins, with Georgie dressed as a fallen angel, she meets a handsome devil who sweeps her off her feet.

With gatecrashers, poisoner and anarchists, this party is going to go off with a Bang!

I just love these books.  They are light, fun, well written and plotted mystery, with a great set of characters.

Delightfully narrated by Katherine Kellgren, who brings out the charm and the fun of the story.  I can, and have listened to them more than once.  And will probably keep going back, as they are so fun to listen to.

Booktaker (Nameless Detective) by Bill Pronzini

bp booktaker

This is one of Bill Pronzini’s ‘Nameless Detective’ mystery short stories.

The main character (the Nameless Detective), is not a youngster, but a man in the prime of his life at 53.  He reminds me of the modern-day version of Mike Hammer.

This short story is about a thief who is managing to get into a locked room and steal books and later maps from an antiquarian book shop.

I found it an entertaining, well written and plotted mystery.  Leaving you wanting to read more of the Nameless Detective novels.

Very well narrated by Nick Sullivan.

I have listened to this novella twice since I downloaded it, and enjoyed it both times.

This was, and still is a ‘Freebie’ on Amazon and Audible.  So why not give it a try?

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

wi sleepy hollow

Although I knew the basics of the story, I had never read or seen it before.

Wahington Irving’s story flows as easily as a meadow brook.

With an educated school teacher like Ichabod Crane succumbing to his fear of ghosts and phantoms, that the Dutch settlers tell roam the area.  The most fearful of them all is the Headless Horseman.

All 7 of the deadly sins are woven within this well told and crafted story.

This isn’t a story I would have normally have read, but I must admit that I throughly enjoyed it.

Very well narrated by Tom Mison, who I believe stars in the TV series Sleepy Hollow.

This audio was an Audible.co.uk ‘members’ gift.
