Let’s Hear It for Audiobooks

I must somehow have missed seeing the announcement that the Audio Publishers Association had announced its list of audiobook finalists for the 2019 Audie Awards. Fortunately, In Reference to Murder picked up the story. There are 24 categories of prizes, but two of those can be assumed to have the greatest interest to Rap Sheet readers.
