hullo hullo, mr. burke...i have been trying, without success, to find your works in audiobook format...i'm in windsor, ontario, canada...our public library has nothing (i'll be bringing this to their attention)...i would even, perish the thought, shell out cash, but neither can i find a place to buy these audiobooks, if they exist, in downloadable format, in canada...might you perhaps know? thanks and best! -laura

Hi Laura - Thanks kindly for getting in touch. I'm afraid that, to the best of my knowledge, none of my books are available in audio format, in Canada or otherwise. Sorry about that. Cheers, Declan
