THE KINGDOM WHERE NOBODY DIES by Kathleen Hills (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Eleven-year-old Claire Hofer sets out to take lunch to her father, who is raking hay in the field, but sees only Constable John McIntire. Her father is dead, and McIntire finds the crime baffling. Yet young Claire may hold the key to the crime.
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® Award-winning narrator, William Dufris. 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.
The end does not justify the means, but in this book in the John McIntire series, a desperate mind can justify almost anything.

On a stifling mid-summer day, eleven-year-old Claire Hofer sets out carrying lunch to her father, who is raking hay. As she nears the field, she hears no rumbling tractor and sees only Township Constable John McIntire. Claire’s father, Reuben, is dead.
Constable McIntire finds the crime baffling. Reuben Hofer has only lived in the old St. Adele schoolhouse since early May, and the family has had little contact with anyone in the community besides the Catholic priest and the local doctor.
But Hofer was not exactly the newcomer that McIntire had believed. His past holds several secrets, including reasons why Hofer was a stranger to his children until he returned home to become their overlord. Could the bewildered and frightened Claire hold the key to this crime?
