Solve: Elections

If the 2016 election has created more than enough mystery for you, think about indulging in some audiobook mysteries about elections. Ross Thomas is one of my favorite writers whose mysteries often have a thick topping of satire spread over the dirty tricks and gamesmanship. THE PORKCHOPPERS narrated by Brian Hopsopple and The SEERSUCKER WHIPSAW narrated by R.C. Bray are Ross Thomas titles to get you started.


Who better to take charge of an election than Tom Clancy? The legendary Jack Ryan is performed by Lou Diamond Phillips in LOCKED ON.


Thriller writer Richard North Patterson has an election in his sights in both THE RACE narrated by Michael Boatman and ECLIPSE read by Peter Francis James.

The Race

Some of these election mysteries I just have to include because of their titles. What about these odds—the first female sheriff of Arizona! Listen how it comes out in TOMBSTONE COURAGE, one of J.A. Jance’s Joanna Brady mysteries nicely narrated by Hillary Huber. CAPITOL CONSPIRACY by William Bernhardt, read by Stephen Hoye, gets an AudioFile Earphones Award.

Capitol Conspiracy

And if listeners want more, Janet Rudolf, in her blog Mystery Fanfare, posted a terrific list of “Presidential Crime Fiction” in November 2012. I see many others available as audiobooks!
