Only the mockingbird sings at the edge of the woods.
AudioFile goes Behind the Mic to talk with narrator Nicole Poole. She filmed her comment in her hometown library . . . shhhh . . . adding a bit of eerie mystery to telling us about Walter Tevis’s post-apocalyptic world in MOCKINGBIRD.
“Tevis creates a world where books are used as building materials—they are just strange hieroglyphics.”—Narrator Nicole Poole

In a dual narration with Robert Fass, Nicole beautifully portrays Mary Lou, the last mother on a dying Earth. Robots and the last surviving humans make for fascinating listening. Read AudioFile’s full review here.
Have you ever wondered about the secrets and skeletons that may be lurking behind the Conclave doors?
The Catholic Church’s election of a new pope epitomizes mystery for the vast majority of the world, and Robert Harris takes advantage of that fact in his new audiobook, CONCLAVE, narrated by Roy McMillan.
Harris weaves in power struggles, politics and puzzles to captivate the audience in this suspenseful pontiff selection. Narrator Roy McMillan takes full advantage of the opportunity to display his range. While not strictly miraculous, his transformation of Cardinal Lomeli, the protagonist, from dispirited to Spirit-filled is most certainly charismatic. And Earphone award-worthy.
