Da Vinci’s Ghost: Genius, Obsession, and How Leonardo Created the World in His Own Image by Toby Lester and narrated by Stephen Hoye
This was rather a disappointment to me.
L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City by John Buntin and narrated by Kirby Heyborne
Think Micky Cohen and other gangsters set in Los Angeles, and you’ve got L.A. Noir.
Pacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 by Ian W. Toll and narrated by Grover Gardner
This is definitely my choice for the 2013 Audie Award in the History Category.
Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love by David Talbot and narrated by Arthur Morey
Having lived through the 60s, I really looked forward to listening to this one, but I was disappointed.
The Wrecking Crew: The Inside Story of Rock and Roll’s Best-Kept Secret by Kent Hartman and narrated by Dan John Miller
Sorry, but this was my least favorite book in this category.
Twelve Desperate Miles: The Epic World War II Voyage of the SS Contessa by Tim Brady and narrated by Joe Barrett
This book, in my opinion, is another good fit for the history category.
