Mystery & Suspense BEST AUDIOBOOKS CRITICAL MASS Sara Paretsky Read by Susan Ericksen (Brilliance Audio) If you've been living in a cave with no media connections, you might not know that Robert Galbraith, author of The Cuckoo's Calling, is really J.K. Rowling. This is her second book for adults. Narrator Robert Glenister is the star— he's just right in this noir-ish mystery with a hard-boiled softie at its center.

This is thanks to narrator George Guidall's perfect character portrayals. Guidall's depiction of Walt Longmire brings the hardheaded, tough yet emotional Wyoming sheriff to life.
