MANOR HOUSE by Paige Rense (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“Mrs. Rense writes about a rarefied world in which she moves effortlessly, as one of the keenest observers of her era.” (Dominick Dunne, New York Times bestselling author)

Meet Pierpont Tree, handsome scion of an old Santa Barbara family, and China Carlyle, ravishingly beautiful retired film star. Together, they investigate murders. The murder of the flamboyant editor-in-chief of a lavish design magazine leaves them with a crowd of suspects, from the upper-crust to the wanna-bes.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Grace Conlin. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Conlin keeps the tension wound up tight.” (AudioFile)

• EXPERIENCE. About 7 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

• OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

• TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

• FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for fans of murder mysteries, architecture, or fictional accounts of the inner workings of glamorous industries.


Meet Pierpont Tree and China Carlyle. He’s the devastatingly handsome and urbane scion of an old Santa Barbara family; she’s the ravishingly beautiful, flame-haired film star who retired at the peak of her career. Together, they investigate murders.

Late one night at the California headquarters of the lavish design magazine Manor House, a dark figure puts a bullet through the head of flamboyant editor-in-chief Beau Paxton. The murder leaves Pier and China with quite a crowd of suspects: the twin brothers who own Manor House and hold a multimillion-dollar insurance policy on Beau’s life; the beautiful young managing editor, the real brains behind Beau’s flashy, figurehead position; and a whole world of designers and dealers, players and wanna-be’s, high rollers and lowlifes, whose ambitions make Manor House a magazine to die for.
