    THE SEARCHER by Tana French, read by Roger Clark

    THE SEARCHER by Tana French, read by Roger Clark

    Fans who've been anticipating Tana French’s next audiobook will not be disappointed. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Roger Clark’s standout performance. His American-Irish-British background makes him uniquely qualified to narrate a tense story of a Chicago cop trying to solve a mystery far out of his jurisdiction. He’s longing for a quiet retirement in the Irish countryside but is drawn into the disappearance of a local youth, and soon discovers that his quiet retreat holds many secrets and hidden dangers. It’s a slow burn of a story, and Clark narrates the dialogue, both rambling and tense, with particular ease and conviction. Published by Penguin Audio.

    MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN by Kate McAll [Adapt.], read by a full cast

    MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN by Kate McAll [Adapt.], read by a full cast

    Perfect Halloween listening, guaranteed to give you chills. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten share their thoughts on a classic adapted for the stage -- MARY SHELLEY’S FRANKENSTEIN. It’s a riveting adaptation of a story within a story, as told by Mary Shelley, that is startlingly different from more familiar movie adaptations. Stacy Keach’s deep voice is perfect for the monster, who is self-educated and sophisticated, but still a creature of Dr. Frankenstein. Seamus Dever’s placid tones recall Captain Walton’s rescue of the doctor in the arctic, while smooth-voiced Adhir Kalyan becomes Frankenstein himself, mad scientist and giver of life. Published by L.A. Theatre Works.

    A LAB OF ONE'S OWN by Rita Colwell, Sharon Bertsch McGrayne, read by Jackie Sanders

    A LAB OF ONE'S OWN by Rita Colwell, Sharon Bertsch McGrayne, read by Jackie Sanders

    Jackie Sanders narrates a memoir on sexism in science from Rita Cowell, a leading microbiologist and the first woman to lead the National Science Foundation. Host Jo Reed and Robin Whitten discuss Jackie Sanders’s straightforward narration, mirroring Cowell’s strategy when dealing with obstructionist male colleagues—stay calm and avoid channeling melodramatics or anger. Cowell persevered in her career to make historical discoveries but faced systemic sexism and bias, and she does not shy away from detailing specific discrimination. An inspiring and illuminating listen for those in the sciences. Published by Simon & Schuster Audio.

    ONE BY ONE by Ruth Ware, read by Imogen Church

    Imogen Church’s extraordinary narration of Ruth Ware’s newest suspense novel will keep listeners glued to their earbuds, unable to do anything else but listen wide-eyed and rapt. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss this thrilling homage to Agatha Christie’s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. Ware has taken the premise of an isolated house with an unidentified killer, cleverly updated the who, where, and what, and pumped up the dread with parallel first-person narrations. It’s witty, cunning, and addictive. Published by Simon & Schuster Audio.
