  • Murder at the 42nd Street Library

    By Con Lehane

    Read by John McLain

    Librarian & reluctant sleuth Raymond Ambler uncovers murderous secrets at NYC's 42nd Street Library.

    "This provocative story features a cast of characters that are well fleshed out, completely fallible and very human. And Lehane sure can write a villain-there are plenty of people you can love to hate in this book, from the arrogant researcher and his cheating wife to the abusive caretaker of the fragile woman down the street. Ambler himself is a shrewd character who immediately brings to mind the phrase 'still waters run deep.' Murder at the 42nd Street Library is altogether an intriguing tale of jealousy and revenge, peppered with colorful characters and a shocking conclusion." - Crimespree
