Publisher's Summary

Still Life With Crows: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

A small Kansas town has turned into a killing ground.Is it a serial killer, a man with the need to destroy?

Or is it a darker force, a curse upon the land?

Amid golden cornfields, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers evil in the blood of America's heartland.

No one is safe. 

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Critic Reviews

"From the first [minute], Still Life with Crows is creepy, disturbing, and altogether fascinating: Preston and Child at their best." (Salem Statesman Journal (OR))

"Highly entertaining...a creepy, well-plotted novel...Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's trademark mix of mystery, suspense, horror, and history proves to be a combination that works." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Smart, skillful writers who have fun spinning their tall tale, and if you enjoy things-that-go-bump-in-the-night thrillers, you'll have fun [listening to] it." (Washington Post Book World

Still Life With Crows, with music and sound effects.

Disclaimer! Not a new book.
That being said, this was amazing. I enjoyed every minute of this book. The background sound is subtle enough to enhance this masterpiece. If you enjoy five minutes of this style I cannot recommend this book enough.

Great Pendergast story & Scott Brick performance.

Some blood & gore mixed with a twisty adventure plot. I may not eat turkey soon.

Hated music accompaniment

Music was VERY DISTRACTING. I’ve never heard a book with constant music. Consider before purchasing this version.

Music is maddening.

If I would have known that there was background music I wouldn’t have got this.

For Pendergast fans

If you love the Pendergast series, this one doesn’t disappoint.
I wouldn’t recommend spending the extra on the book track, the background sounds are not necessarily adding to the book content.

disappointing

I really miss Rene auberjonois as narrator. and the music was a huge distraction. there is a version that Rene auberjonois read, but it's not a whole story.

It’s an audio book, not a movie soundtrack!

I love the entire series so far! I love Scott Brick as the narrator.

Audible or whom ever desires these things, please STOP with the music during the reading. It actually takes away from the story!!

Excellent!

This is my first Pendergast mystery. Won’t be my last! Great mystery horror and creepy novel! Excellent detective. The background music was a little annoying at times but the book was so good I kept going.

Just get rid of the constant music

Story was fine but the music was both constant and very annoying. Hope the rest of the series does not include the music track.
