Publisher's Summary

This anthology of suspense showcases 5 renowned American mystery writers. The mixture begins with Lucky Day, by Mary Higgins Clark (narrated by Betsy Palmer). It's the story of a young bride who suspects her husband is somehow involved in a strange disappearance. Trapped, by Dean R. Koontz (narrated by Bess Armstrong), takes you into the darkest depths of terror as he explores the psychology of both sides of the human hunt. In Pastime, by Robert B. Parker (narrated by David Dukes), Spenser comes to the aid of a boy he once straightened out. Carol Higgins Clark narrates her own story, Snagged, in which private eye Regan Reilly follows a trail of murder and deceit at a pantyhose convention. Finally, Dealer's Choice, by Sara Paretsky (narrated by Elliott Gould), pays homage to Raymond Chandler by bringing back Philip Marlowe to investigate a case.

    "Shocking audio quality"

    Shocking audio quality. Couldn't listen to the last story at all and the rest was accompanied by interference. Ok stories for the most part but ruined by the quality. Never had this experience with audible before. Can't believe I paid for this!

    "Audio quality a let-down"

    Though I'm a fan of these authors, the quality of this audiobook is below Audible's normal high standards. I'd recommend choosing another book. Audible, you might consider removing it from your line-up (or at least seeing to the audio quality).

    Story
    "Waste of a credit!!"

    I could not understand the last story because it was taped so quietly and was very muffled sounding. I tried deleting it and downloading it again, but nothing worked. Carol Higgins Clark read her own story and still could not make it interesting. She definitely does not have the talent of her mother!

    "Poor audio quality"

    I was very disappointed as this audiobook was unlistenable. The sound quality is terrible. Preview before you buy.

    Story
    "WHY DID THEY MESS THIS UP???"
    What disappointed you about Great Mysteries, Great Writers?

    The best one, the last was Robert B Parker - Pastime, the audio is HORRIBLE and unable to listen - FIRE THE PERSON who edited this


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Great Mysteries, Great Writers?

    Me finally reaching the story I wanted and not being able to listen to it


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Joe Mantanga and Tom Selleck spoiled me with Robert B Parker


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Rest were ok, but the main course at the end ruined it


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I could have listened to it, only 30% of Pastime is audible
