I'm looking for mystery/suspense audio CDs for car trips. I'm not sure the best way to find them here. If anyone has any they're looking to offload, PM me. If you have suggestions on how I can search and find them, please let me know as well.
I hope I don't get in trouble for mentioning these, but here is what I do:
My library - excellent source Cracker Barrel - they have a rental program. It costs a lot up front, but you get most of it back upon returning audiobook.
http://www.audiobookstand.com/ I recently discovered this website. They are always running $10 unabridged audiobook on CD specials. So far I've purchased 5 or 6 JD Robb audio books this way. Oh and they ship quickly so if you need them within a week chances are good you'd get them in time.
Now to mention a few of my favorite audiobooks:
JD Robb - the entire series is excellent. It has some pretty steamy sex scenes so if children are going to be in the car you won't want to get these. (favorite narrator is Susan Ericksen)
Harry Potter - I was amazed by how great Jim Dale did with this series. I listened to it ages ago, but recently we borrowed the first six from the library and my husband has been listening to them (and me when I have time). I bought him the final book as a Xmas present (shhhhh).
Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series - but I only enjoy C.J. Critt - she has the voices and mannerisms down pat. I couldn't believe it when they went from a New Jersey accent to a cultured northern (bostonian or NY) accent. What were the publishers thinking UGH. This series is pretty clean.
Clancy books - It's been years ago but we did get some of the Jack Ryan series on Audiobook. They were pretty good.
hope this helps.
I have a new sealed audiobook on 4 cassettes that I bought for myself, until I got a new car and it had a CD player.
You can have it free with an order! Please PM me if interested.

I have "Killer Instinct" by Joseph Finder on my bookshelf. I listened to it on a trip and really got into it. Read by Scott Brick.
