THE BURYING PLACE by Brian Freeman (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
"Freeman builds a suspenseful tale of terror and secrets kept too long." (Library Journal)
A child is missing. Three women have been taken. Time is running out for them all. When a rich doctor's baby is kidnapped, Lieutenant Jonathan Stride and his partner, Serena, find themselves on opposite sides of the case. Meanwhile, Stride’s colleague, Maggie, is chasing a killer in Duluth. When a victim with ties to the doctor's case is murdered in the signature style of the Duluth killer, the cases converge.
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 on a tiny screen. 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 exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator Joe Barrett. 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.
"Brian Freeman is, quite simply, a first-rate storyteller." (Nelson DeMille)
