THE LANGUAGE OF THE DEAD
A WORLD WAR II MYSTERY
by Stephen Kelly Read by Shaun Grindell
Stephen Kelly has joined the growing ranks of crime writers who craft murder mysteries featuring sensitive, intellectual police inspectors who solve gruesome deaths in charming English villages. Like others in this subgenre, this novel's pace is relaxed, and time is spent developing characters and exploring relationships. The abundance of villagers--aristocrats, sheep farmers, urchins, wounded soldiers, orphans, and an alcoholic police sergeant--gives narrator Shaun Grindell a splendid opportunity to make each character unique and credible. In addition, Grindell delivers the narrative in a clear, straightforward manner. The author is fortunate to have his debut novel read by such an accomplished narrator.

THE DUKE OF DARK DESIRES Wild Quartet, Book 4
by Miranda Neville Read by Shaun Grindell
Julian Fortescue, newly minted Duke of Denford, finds himself in need of a governess when he unexpectedly becomes the guardian of his three half-sisters. The lovely Jane Grey seems to be the perfect solution, but Jane has many secrets, and all is not as it seems. Shaun Grindell's rich, vibrant voice resonates as the handsome, rakish Duke. Grindell is equally adroit in his portrayal of the Duke's Irish half- siblings, his flighty mother, and the demure but determined Jane. Grindell's portrayals of French aristocrats and British members of the ton are also well crafted. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2015]
Beautifully narrated-a soothing voice that seems to put your past pains at ease.
Shaun Grindell does an excellent job creating personalities for the wide cast of characters. His voice is age perfect for Hamish as well as his authentically portrayed Highland accent. Grindell's timing and speech rhythm is exceptional in delivering Beaton's wit and humour adding much to the enjoyment of listening to the story.
