Elegy for April by Benjamin Black--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Benjamin Black's crime novel Elegy for April, narrated by actor Timothy Dalton. Quirke—the hard-drinking, insatiably curious Dublin pathologist—is back, and he's determined to find his daughter's best friend, a well-connected young doctor. April Latimer has vanished. A junior doctor at a local hospital, she is something of a scandal in the conservative and highly patriarchal society of 1950s Dublin.
