THE THANKSGIVING DAY MURDER by Lee Harris (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
More than a year ago, Natalie Gordon disappeared at a Thanksgiving Day parade. Investigators still have no leads. When ex-nun Christine Bennett investigates her past—a life someone has tried very had to erase—she discovers a cast of characters so chilling that murder seems not only inevitable, but likely to happen again.
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 Audie®-winning narrator, Susan O'Malley. 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.
A well-crafted novel of detection…Susan O’Malley narrates this puzzling mystery in a straightforward, no-frills style…Her spare style matches the characteristics of her detective, Chris Bennet Brooks…who approaches the task of finding out what happened in a painstaking, no-nonsense manner, which is interesting but not melodramatic.

More than a year ago, Natalie Gordon went to buy a balloon at the Thanksgiving Day parade and dissolved into thin air. The police and a private investigator still have no leads. So when Natalie’s despairing husband pleads with ex-nun Christine Bennett to help, she can’t say no.
Not only are Natalie’s present whereabouts a mystery but so is her past. Someone has stripped her personnel file in her old office. Even her husband knows strangely little about her. Starting with a cardboard box of Natalie’s belongings—a few books, keys, some cosmetics—Christy searches for a life someone has tried very had to erase and finds a cast of characters so chilling that murder seems not only inevitable, but likely to happen again.
