The Murders at Astaire Castle by Lauren Carr {Audiobook Review}Title: The Murders at Astaire Castle
Genre: ,

Never tell Mac Faraday not to do something.

Spencer's police chief, David O'Callaghan, learns this lesson the hard way when he orders Mac Faraday to stay away from the south end of Spencer's mountaintop - even though he owns the property. It doesn't take long for Mac to find out what lies on the other side of the stone wall and locked gate, on which hangs a sign warning visitors to Keep Out!

Topping the list of the 10 top haunted places in America, Astaire Castle is associated with two suicides, three mysterious disappearances, and four murders since it was built almost a century ago - and Mac Faraday owns it!

In spite of David's warning, Mac can't resist unlocking the gate to see the castle that supposedly hasn't seen a living soul since his late mother had ordered it closed up after the double homicide and disappearance of Damian Wagner, a world-famous master of horror novels.

What starts out as a quick tour of a dusty old castle turns into another Mac Faraday adventure when Astaire Castle becomes the scene of even more murders. Mac is going to need to put all of his investigative talents to work to sort out this case that involves the strangest characters he has run into yet - including a wolf man. No, we're not talking about Gnarly.

I love the Mac Faraday series – all of them – whether I’m reading it or listening to it.

I will admit, listening to the audio book was a little different because of the narrator’s voice versus the voices in my head; but overall, it still made the entire experience enjoyable – it just brought more of a real life version to Mac, Archie, and Gnarly.

I know I missed some things with listening to the audio book versus reading the actual book so I fully intend on reading the books as well so I can catch all the details I missed.

What I did gather is that Mac’s mother owned a castle that Mac was not made aware of until recently and while his half brother warns him to stay away; Mac doesn’t listen.

There are a couple different mysteries within the entire mystery (like the disappearance of the author).

If you like audio books, you will enjoy this one. If you prefer reading rather than listening, I recommend picking up the book. All of the Mac Faraday book by Lauren Carr are worth the time to read – they are thoroughly enjoyable!
