April is the perfect time to pick up a new audiobook featuring our talented authors and narrators. We understand that at times it could be a challenge narrowing down your next listen, but don’t worry. Our acquirers have selected some of their top picks for you.

Hidden on the Fens

Joy Ellis presents Book 11 in the DI Nikki Galena series.

Note: A crime from 15 years ago resurfaces (has the killer returned for another young girl?), a sexual predator preys on recently widowed women, and a couple receives sinister Pagan artifacts in the 11th installment of the DI Nikki Galena series. If you’re already a fan of the series, be ready for more excitement in Greenborough and a chance to learn more about Joseph’s daughter, Tamrin. If you’re new to the series, you can jump in on book 11 (Ellis does an excellent job of recapping the important points/relationships) or you can binge all 11 books – prepare to be addicted either way!

What We Inherit: A Secret War and a Family’s Search for Answers

In the wake of her mother’s death, Jessica Pearce Rotondi uncovers boxes of letters, declassified CIA reports, and newspaper clippings that bring to light a family ghost: her uncle Jack, who disappeared during the CIA-led “Secret War” in Laos in 1972. The letters lead her across Southeast Asia in search of the truth that has eluded her family for decades.

Note: After the death of her mother, Jessica Pearce Rotondi excavates the clues of her uncle’s wartime disappearance in search of answers to the secrets and grief that has haunted her family for decades.
