While several audiobooks have maintained their status on the bestseller list, there are some new titles available. Let’s take a look at what’s new. The Copper Bracelet by 16 thriller authors (read by Alfred Molina) is a collaborative effort.
The first chapter was written by Jeffrey Deaver, known for his Lincoln Rhyme series, then passed on to the next author until each had completed one chapter.
Deaver then ties things up with the final chapter. This is a sequel to The Chopin manuscript, which is also on our list this week. Both novels follow former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton as he is drawn into mysterious circumstances. I have yet to read either. I’d love to hear from someone who has read either one so I know whether to pick them up.
David Baldacci is no stranger to bestseller lists as he returns with True Blue (read by Ron McLarty). A female police officer in Washington DC lost her job, her badge, and her freedom after being framed for a crime.
Determined to win back her job, she takes on a high-profile homicide on her own. Yup, you guessed right. I do want to read this…
Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, is on our list with Grave Secret: Harper Connelly Mysteries, Book 4. Harper Connelly is a supernatural detective. Her ability to see the dead is put to use in solving their murders. Not on my list, but I know several people who are probably dying to read this. Poor word choice?
Heat Wave, by fictional author Richard Castle and read by Johnny Heller, is making an appearance on this week’s list. Castle is a character on the ABC television network show, Castle. I’m guessing this is a snowy weekend read.
The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution written by Richard Dawkins and narrated by the author and Lalla Ward, takes yet another look at religion vs. evolution. Scientific evidence abounds as Dawkins sheds light upon evolution. I’m not sure if there is anything new here that hasn’t been presented before, but it certainly sounds interesting.
The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown, Nine Dragons by Michael Connelly, and The Scarpetta Factor are still holding strong on the list, as are The Help by Kathryn Stockett, An Echo in Bone by Diana Gabaldon, and SuperFreakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner.
Plenty of great titles to choose from! Check Out Audible’s Best Sellers.
