Title: No Known Address

Author: Jo A. Hiestand

Genre: Mystery

Book Blurb:

A teenager goes missing from a sleepy English village. Was the pressure of succeeding in tennis or music too much for Luke, and he simply ran away? Of was his fiancée, a local gang, or even his father involved in the boy’s flight or death?

Three years later, Michael McLaren is hired to open the cold case to find the boy. As McLaren probes into Luke’s life, he discovers the truth lies in a tangle of lies and false identity. But it quickly becomes a dangerous game of hide–and-seek between the ice-cold killer and McLaren. And he has no idea the one he ultimately finds was even in the game.

What makes this a must-listen audiobook?

Narrator Callum Hale’s voices and emotion are exceptional. Especially the last two chapters. I obviously wrote the book, but he had me sobbing. A woman who reviewed the book said it stayed with her for days. She too cried at the last chapters and also talked about the book with her husband…and she never does that! Callum really brought out those scenes and put us right in there.

Author Biography:

A month-long trip to England during her college years introduced Jo to the joys of Things British. Since then, she has been lured back nearly a dozen times and lived there during her professional folksinging stint.

Jo’s insistence for accuracy--from police methods and location layout to the general “feel” of the area--has driven her innumerable times to Derbyshire for research. These explorations and conferences with police friends provide the details filling both her Peak District mysteries and the McLaren mystery series.

In 1999 Jo returned to Webster University to major in English. She graduated in 2001 with a BA degree and departmental honors.

Jo also writes a Missouri-based amateur sleuth series, The Linn House Mysteries.

Her cat, Tennyson, shares her St. Louis-area home.

Narrator Biography:

Callum Hale

I trained as an actor at the East 15 School of Acting, based on the principles of Joan Littewoods Theatre Workshop. I knew from fairly early on that I wanted to be an actor, pretty much ever since I realised that playing make-believe could actually be a career. I’ve been telling stories my entire life, and when as a child I was given a Dictaphone I would record books for me and my siblings to listen to, so you could say I’ve been narrating audiobooks for a very, VERY long time.

I remember particularly recording a number of short stories from a magazine my Scottish Grandmother used to share with us. One was about a Clooty Dumpling that got into a scrape with a spider in a cave. I read the entire thing in a Scottish accent; which you can hear me doing plenty of in the McLaren audiobook, No Known Address.

My Mother’s family are from the Yorkshire and Cheshire regions of England, not far from where McLaren and his friend Jamie call home, so I was drawn not only to those characters, and the sounds of those voices, but also to the landscapes, which Jo makes just as important a character in her books.

I find it a real joy to sit in my little corner, behind the microphone, and step into the world of the book I’m narrating. Just as you would when reading alone for pleasure, I can see the hills in my mind’s eye, I feel the emotion of McLaren; I let the words effect me and, hopefully, affect my delivery so that the listener has the same engagement as they would reading the words themselves. To my mind, narrating is acting, and acting is telling stories, and I’ve been doing that all my life.
