“An Unexpected Guest”: Listen Now!

We're thrilled to have “An Unexpected Guest” to share in audio format! This short story is a collision of fan-favorite universes, courtesy of their respective authors, Donna Andrews and John Gilstrap, and in commemoration of Mystery Writers of America's 70th anniversary. If you'd like to read the text version of what happens when one of Digger's deadly operatives, Boxers, is sent on assigment to Meg Langslow's hometown, the usually-charming Caerphilly, it's posted here.

But clicking above, you'll hear this story read by Basil Sands, an award-winning narrator working from Sandman Production Studios “nestled between the foot of the coastal Chugach Mountains and the northern limits of the Pacific Ocean in Anchorage Alaska.” A thriller writer himself, he voices the Jonathan Grave series as well as many other audiobooks. We thank him for lending his talents in this unique cause!
