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. • EXPERIENCE. About 7 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players. • PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap. • SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing. • CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average. • CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come. • OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready!

The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again. • TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed. • FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy unconventional mysteries. ___________________ 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.
