Killer Year: Stories To Die For

, ed. 7 CDs. 9 hrs. Brilliance. 2015. ISBN 9781511310352. $19.99. 1 MP3-CD. F
Thirteen crime writers, all of whose first novels were published in 2007, are introduced in this anthology by well-known authors including James Rollins, Tess Gerritsen, and Jeffery Deaver. The collection delivers a solid listening experience perfect for commuters. The audio version of a book published in print in 2008 offers early works from writers including Marcus Sakey, Brett Battles, and JT Ellison. There are no clunkers here, and librarians will be scrambling to make sure all of the authors are represented in their collections. David Devries and Christina Traister provide solidly entertaining performances.
VERDICT Recommended for mystery and thriller fans looking for something new.
