In “Death by Dahlia,” #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris takes vampire Dahlia Lynley-Chivers to a lavish party that turns deadly. And with so many different creatures of the night in attendance, Dahlia will have a hard time identifying the most likely suspect.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs thrills in “In Red, with Pearls,” as a werewolf PI races to crack a case involving zombies, witches, and the most horrifying creatures of them all—lawyers.

In “Lord John and the Plague of Zombies,” New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon follows Lord John as he journeys to the beautiful but faintly sinister island paradise of Jamaica, where he’s soon investigating a mystery with no shortage of spiders, snakes, revolutionaries, and, of course, zombies.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Lauer | 2/8/2014

    " A little more supersittious stuff than I care for, but it's still Lord John being Lord John. 8-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Center | 2/3/2014

    " I could only make myself read 2 of the stories. The Charlaine Harris story, which was okay at best. It did not add to the series and these are not even secondary characters in the book. I was a littel disappointed. Didn't catch my interest. The 2nd short story was Patricia Briggs'. It was wonderful. I love these characters and was delighted to get more of them, plus the story was captivating. I would have given this one 5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/29/2014

    " This was a pretty good collection of stories. I mainly read this for the Patricia Briggs and Charlaine Harris stories - the Briggs one I quite liked, but the Harris story was dreadful, easily the worst in the whole collection. Found some new authors I enjoyed at least! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lora | 1/19/2014

    " Lots of weird short stories. Some good ones, some....not so good. Some of my favorite authors disappointed me, but I found a few new potential authors to check out. Best in the book is the last one, set in Alaska during World War II. Some other intriguing concepts, but as I read the book over the course of 3 months at lunch times at work, several of them have slipped my mind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 1/19/2014

    " Seeing Dahlia and Diantha in a different setting was very interesting. The short story murder mystery in this anthology moved right along without all the extra stuff to get you more confused than you needed to be. I was definitely surprised to when I found out "who done it." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 12/27/2013

    " I read only the story by Diana Gabaldon, "Lord John and the Plague of Zombies" so that's all the rating refers to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 12/17/2013

    " My rating is only for Patricia Brigg's story. I really enjoyed this look into the lives of Kyle and Warren. They're such a great couple in the series and I'm really glad to have read a story with just them in it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 12/14/2013

    " Short but sweet moment in Lord John's life. Loved the tie in of extraneous Outlander characters and storylines. Diana is the master at this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mitzi | 12/5/2013

    " Diana Gabaldons LJG novella "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natalie | 10/7/2013

    " Like many, my main draw to this book was Charlaine Harris' short story, but even that couldn't appease me. I could barely get through the second short story. Overall it was quite the disappointment and sad I wasted so much time uploading this book to my ipod. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 8/29/2013

    " On the one hand I love how she includes characters from other books, on the other hand it seems a little improbable that everyone is always around. Then again, how big is the island of Jamaica? Or the English nobility? I suppose it might not be that unlikely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A. Nonny Mouse | 8/12/2013

    " My favorites were "The Lady is a Screamer," "Lord John and the Plague of Zombies," "Death by Dahlia," and "In Red, With Pearls." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica Albright | 8/9/2013

    " A collection of "urban fantasy" short stories...by great authors like: Charlaine Harris, Carrie Vaughn, Simon R. Green....and many more. Fun and easy read since each short story stands alone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 7/21/2013

    " Love Diana Gabaldon. Love Lord John. Love the ending. Also love the little yellow snake subduing the fearsome ham. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Wilson | 6/12/2013

    " 2.5 stars - I liked a few of the stories but there were more that I didn't care for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa Ricks | 4/5/2013

    " I enjoyed the stories from Paticia Briggs and Simon R Green, the others were just so-so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LinseyM | 12/3/2012

    " Nice anthology of urban fantasy stories. Many stories from series we love but told from the perspective of often secondary characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karis | 11/28/2012

    " I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would! It was a perfect mix of mystery, horror, fantasy, science fiction, and some historical fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 7/1/2012

    " I will admit that I only read 3 of the stories. My rating is the average for those stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Ruetz | 6/17/2012

    " i really enjoyed the stories that were in this book. Very interesting mix of writing types and i love a good mystery, these all had a gritty, urban feel with a dark twist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brianne | 4/19/2012

    " Only read Gabaldon, Martin and Harris - decent stories not fantastic but entertaining. "

    " I only read patricia briggs story, and since i love Warren and Kyle, i really liked it, even though it was very short "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marisella | 11/8/2011

    " A wonderful book of shorts, with familiar faces in new places. I love shorts for the opportunity to meet authors I haven't read before, and there were some in here that whose bibliographies I had to add to my TBR shelf. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 11/5/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennyg | 10/22/2011

    " Most of the stories were entertaining. There were a few that were boring but overall a fun fast read. Plus I only have time these days for short stories because I don't have time to get sucked into a book. These were great little snippets to satisfy my appetite for reading. "
