Murder on Safari by Peter Riva
I got the audio version of this book. Which by the way narrator, R.D. Watson is really good. I have listened to some narrators that have a monotone voice that could put you to sleep, no matter how good or bad the book is written. Then there are other narrators that being the story to life. This is what Mr. Watson did for this book. To be honest, while I liked listening to this book, if I had been reading it I might have given up on it. There were points that even while listening to Mr. Watson reading the story that I felt it droned on and the story slowed down and lost some of the excitement and action. Yet again, it was for Mr. Watson that I did stick with listening to this book. Well this reason and I did feel that Mr. Riva could tell a good story. He made East Africa come alive. It was like I was instantly transported to East Africa and could see the movie of this book playing out in my head. While I may not have loved this book I would check out other books by Mr. Riva and also listen to more audio books narrated by Mr. Watson.

SIN by Shaun Allan
review from Best in Fantasy by Connie Jasperson
Sin is a dark, urban fantasy, written with a large dose of sardonic humor. We hear the tale from the man who was given the name ‘Sin Mathews’ at birth, but who goes by the name of Sin only, as the last name doesn’t matter; only the name which is the sum of his parts matters. R.D. Watson’s reading of Allen’s shining, witty, prose is moving and brilliant in every aspect. He gets into Sin’s head, and you are completely spellbound.
The Nectar Of Angels by Dane St John
“It transports you to another time, another world”
Even if you’re not into historical fiction, this is an absolutely delightful book. I was constantly torn between wanting to know what happened next and not wanting it to end. I burned through Part One in about a week and could barely wait to get into Part Two. R.D. Watson’s narration is expertly done, I loved his intonation, accents and interpretation of St. John’s written word. He does a masterful job of blending history with an action-packed thriller. For me, the measure of my enjoyment of a book is in how much of a let-down I experience when I finish it. Luckily, I had Part Two, The Venom of Serpents to mitigate the effect.

“A beautiful and exciting adventure !”
What a wonderful adventure through the life and times of strife and turmoil. This author takes one through history and makes you feel like you are one of the characters in time. I couldn’t quit listening, it was so intriguing. I never cared much for history, but the way this author presents it, I am now. The narrator was absolutely true to the story and magnificent. I hope everyone listens to this enchanting story and reviews it for the author.

What does R.D. Watson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Amazing talent. I got to the point where I just felt like I wasn’t having a good day unless I listened to his voice (and this story) at least once. He is a true artist, bringing lots of flavor and dialects and accents that really round out such a diverse set of characters.
