#ThrowbackThursday ~ Burnt Offerings: Valancourt 20th Century Classics By Robert Marasco #Horror #Audiobook

My Throwback Thursday choice this week is an audiobook which was released in March 2016, and narrated by RC Bray. It’s not gory, more classic type horror and apparently it was an acknowledged influence on The Shining. One of the most original and scary haunted house novels ever written, according to Amazon. I’ve since acquired the film but haven’t watched it as yet.

The Man From The Broken Hills by Louis L’Amour ~ Western Adventure #AudiobookReview #TuesdayBookBlog

Author: Louis L’Amour

Performed by MacLeod Andrews

Released March 2019 by Random House Audio

Category: Western Adventure, Audiobook Review

For years Milo Talon had been riding the outlaw trail, looking for a man who had betrayed his family. Only Hank Rossiter wasn’t the man he had been: old now and blind, Rossiter was trying desperately to hold on to a small ranch to support his daughter, Barbara. Suddenly Talon found himself in the middle of a range war, siding with the man he’d marked for payback. But had Rossiter really changed? And could his daughter be trusted by either of them? 

In the mood for something different as I looked through the new releases on Audible, I saw The Man From The Broken Hills narrated by MacLeod Andrews. It fit the bill perfectly, although I didn’t realise at the time it was part of a series. As it happens, it can easily be read, or listened to, as a standalone.

Released on Audible 2012 by Quercus Publishing

Category: Crime, Mystery, Murder, Drama, Audiobook, Book Review

A body is recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis. The male Caucasian corpse is initially believed by its finders to be over 2000 years old, until they spot the Elvis tattoo on his right arm. The body, it transpires, is not evidence of an ancient ritual killing, but of a murder committed during the latter half of the 20th century.

On the Isle of Lewis peat cutting is considered a social activity, with families, friends and neighbours all joining in and working together. Trenches are dug and the peat cut and stacked as it has been for centuries. Only this time the peat cutters uncover more than they bargained for when an almost perfectly preserved body is discovered. Initially the police surgeon thinks the body could have been there for hundreds of years, it was only when a tattoo becomes visible they realise the young man had been murdered much more recently.
