What's your favorite listen of the year?


  1. I love Lies of Locke Lamora (I'm reading the second book right now, Red Seas Under Red Skies). My absolute favorite, in that same vein, but a fantastic audio book is The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes - owing, in part, to the performance of Justine Eyre as narrator. The second in the series, The Prophecy Con, is as also very entertaining.

  2. I always like to read this Lies of Locke Lamora and the author delivers the wonderfully thrilling tale of an audacious criminal and his band of confidence tricksters. For more writing help you can chose this best essay writing service for a better support.
