Paranormal Suspense / Audio book (Unabridged) / 17 hours and 51
by Jo Rogers
Imagine the best spy thriller possible. Add paranormals to it and
you'll have Daniel O'Malley's The Rook.
The story began when Mwiffany Thomas woke up in a park in a residential
area of London, England. It was raining and she was soaked from
lying on the ground in the chilly rain. She got up and looked around
her. Several dead bodies, all dressed in purple and wearing latex
gloves, laid on the ground around her. There was a street lamp close,
so she could search her pockets to to try to find something that
would tell her who she was and what had happened to her.
Mwiffany found a letter she had written to herself. The letter
told her she wasn't Mwiffany Alice Thomas, but she was now in her
body. She was in a lot of danger. Someone wanted her dead and would
stop at nothing to accomplish that. Just because she was not Mwiffany
Thomas, didn't mean she would be safe. She had to get to a hotel
and out of sight. She had cash and credit cards for all this and
would get more after she got some rest. She could continue life
as Mwiffany Thomas or disappear and start a new life. She had plenty
of money either way.
The first sentence grabbed my attention and I was hooked. I didn't
want to put it down. So deep was my connection that I dozed off
while listening, but when I went to replay what I slept through,
I found I had heard every word, even in my sleep.
Needless to say, the characters are far from normal humans, but
you can believe they are real in spite of those abnormalities. The
plot is full of bizarre twists. So listen to The Rook and
