ONE CORPSE TOO MANY by Ellis Peters (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). In the summer of 1138, war between King Stephen and the Empress Maud takes Brother Cadfael from his quiet garden into a battlefield of passions, deceptions, and death. Not far from the safety of the abbey walls, Shrewsbury Castle falls, leaving its ninety-four defenders loyal to the empress to hang as traitors. With a heavy heart, Brother Cadfael agrees to bury the dead, only to make a grisly discovery: ninety-five dead bodies lie in a row—the extra victim cruelly strangled, not hanged. This ingenious way to dispose of a corpse tells Brother Cadfael that the killer is both clever and ruthless. He vows to find the truth behind disparate clues: a girl in boy’s clothing, a missing treasure, and a single broken flower … the tiny bit of evidence that Cadfael believes can most expose a murderer’s black heart. 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 narrator, Johanna Ward. 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. •EXPERIENCE.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy period mysteries. ___________________ “Delightful…a colorful and authentic medieval background fraught with swordplay and a challenge to the death.” (Publishers Weekly) “Narrator Johanna Ward is warm and lively as she transports us back in time. Her voice animates the many characters congenially as conspiracy and intrigue abound. This narration leaves the listener yearning for more Brother Cadfael.” (AudioFile)
