THE DEPEST WATER by Kate Wilhelm (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see below for features list).
When Jud Connors, a successful writer, is found murdered in his isolated cabin in the Oregon woods, daughter Abby sees her world start to fall apart. Who could have wanted her father dead? And why? As Abby embarks on her own investigation, she soon realizes that the clue to the murderer’s identity is buried in her father’s latest novel, finished just weeks before his death. But will she be able to see through the fiction before the killer comes after her?
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other retailers for higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio and read by Marguerite Gavin, who is a seasoned theater and screen actor as well as a popular audiobook narrator. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Marguerite Gavin sets a brisk pace with her no-nonsense narrative style.” —AudioFile
