THE ANNIVERSARY MAN by R. J. Ellory (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“R.J. Ellory’s remarkable talent for probing the unknown establishes him as the master of the genre. The perfect author to read late into the night.” (Clive Cussler, New York Times bestselling author)
Twenty years ago, John Costello and his girlfriend became victims of a deranged serial killer. Physically and psychologically scarred, he withdrew from society and hid in his apartment, emerging only to work as a crime researcher for a major newspaper. But when a new spate of murders starts, only John can discern the complex pattern that lies behind them.
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® and Audie® Award-winning narrator, Stefan Rudnicki. 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.
“This is one of those police-procedural gems that come along once in a blue moon...And what a story it is!” (Booklist)

Twenty years ago John Costello and his beautiful girlfriend, Nadia, were attacked by the deranged serial killer known as “Hammer of God.” Nadia was killed. John survived but was physically and psychologically scarred. He withdrew from society, hid in his apartment, and emerges now only to work as a crime researcher for a major newspaper. Damaged he may be, but no one in New Jersey knows more about serial killers than John Costello.
