Even down to its well-set Georgian townhouses, Edinburgh is a hymn to measure and harmony. But on Scotland Street, domestic accord is in short supply. Matthew and Elspeth welcome three new arrivals, though the joys of multiple parenthood are somewhat lost due to sleep deprivation and the difficulties of telling their brood apart. Angus and Domenica are to marry, and Domenica has ambitious and disturbing plans for their living arrangements, especially when it appears that Antonia, in Italy recuperating from Stendhal Syndrome, may not return. And little Bertie, feeling blue, puts himself up for adoption on eBay. Can Edinburgh´s most deliciously dysfunctional residents forsake discord and learn to dance to the same happy tune? 1.

Leo Maxwell thinks he´s found a career-making case when a mysterious woman nearly runs him down, then appears at his office to hire him to defend her brother on a murder charge. One problem: Leo hasn´t actually met the client when he sets out to investigate what seems like a hot tip on a burgeoning scandal in the Oakland Police Department. When he presents evidence of deep-set corruption in the Department to the District Attorney´s office, he quickly learns that all is not as it seems, beginning with Leo´s client and the alluring woman who hired him. Leo´s ´´client´´, as he learns to his humiliation, is actually represented by Nikki Matson, one of Oakland´s most notorious gangland lawyers. What´s more, the client knows nothing about Leo being hired to defend him and claims not even to have a sister. Soon after Leo realizes that he´s been set up by unknown persons to be the number-one enemy of both the police and the gangs, he also discovers he´s being framed for Matson´s murder. He knows he´s a marked man unless he can bring those responsible to justice. Bodies pile up as Leo closes in on his tormenters, while at the same time, they are closing in on him. 1.

Now, for the first time in audio, Blackstone presents seven great plays in one volume: Euripides´ Medea, Shakespeare´s The Tempest, Moliere´s The Imaginary Invalid, Dumas´ Camille, Ibsen´s An Enemy of the People, Shaw´s Arms and the Man, and Chekhov´s Uncle Vanya. These productions illustrate the development of European drama from ancient times to the threshold of the modern theater. A superb repertory company has been assembled for these recordings, all under the direction of veteran producer Yuri Rasovsky, who has won both the Audie Award for book production and the George Foster Peabody Award for broadcasting. These are not mere readings. Rather, they are full performances using all the resources of audio to full advantage. Just as stage plays are ´´opened up´´ when adapted to film, so these selections create greater intimacy. ´´Staginess´´ is avoided, lively theatrics enhanced, while the substance of the works remains intact. For instance, in Arms and the Man, audio makes possible the judicious integration of the author´s witty scene settings, written for the published version of the play, with the play itself. This is the play that established Shaw´s reputation as one of the greatest wits of the London drama scene. Music accounts for another noteworthy aspect of these productions. The Imaginary Invalid employs the score that Marc-Antoine Charpentier composed for Moliere´s own premiere. It is conducted by Steven Ovitsky, artistic director of the Milwaukee Symphony. The Tempest, composed by Shakespeare as a multi-sensory theater experience, features music on Elizabethan instruments still extant from Shakespeare´s own production, resulting in lyrical textual passages, overflowing with exotic images, tantalizing sounds, and a palpable lushness. 1.
