POINTING FROM THE GRAVE by Samantha Weinberg (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Weinberg’s personal observations and crackling trial dialogue add to the stark realism of this hard-hitting and powerful book.” (Kliatt)
Helena Greenwood, a doctor of biotechnology, was found brutally murdered in her home. Ten years later, a district attorney would use Helena’s own DNA research to finally convict her killer. This is both a riveting true-crime story and a fascinating history of the development of DNA research in forensics.
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, Nadia May. 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.
“May handles Weinberg's interviews…with tact and taste. Her performance makes this carefully researched true-crime drama as fascinating as crime fiction.” (AudioFile)

Helena Greenwood, a doctor with a Ph.D. in chemical pathology, was embarking on a new, exciting career in biotechnology when she became a victim of sexual assault in her own home. She survived, but before she could appear in court as the key witness against her attacker, she was found brutally murdered. Everyone believed that her past attacker was the killer, but there was not enough evidence to convict him—until ten years later, when a district attorney working “cold cases” used Helena’s own DNA research to finally bring her killer to justice.
