December 1953 Hugo Hawksworth is on the tail of rogue Cold War agents at a top-secret government facility, while back home at Selchester Castle they´re awaiting the arrival of the new earl - an American, the long-lost son of the murdered Lord Selchester. The town of Selchester, rich in scandal and gossip, is unsure what to make of the earl or his teenage daughters, but they know that his sharp-tongued half-sister, Lady Sonia, furious at being deprived of her inheritance, won´t be a merry guest over Christmas. The new Lord Selchester can cope with the strangeness of English country life, but he hadn´t expected stolen paintings - or a body in the hothouse. What´s the link between Hugo´s investigations and the suspicious goings-on in the town and at the castle? And will he and his allies get to the heart of the mystery before the murderer gets to them? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Page.

Now they´re catching up to her, and throwing her for a loop. Ten years ago, Toni kissed Lucky, her brother´s best friend. Worried it would break apart the group she´d come to see as family, she walked away - straight into the arms of Charlie, and an abusive relationship. For the past decade she´s tried to keep her feelings for Lucky platonic - he´s her friend, her colleague, and he´s got his own past to deal with. Free of Charlie but unable to shake his memory, Toni finds herself feeling vulnerable and unable to deny her attraction to Lucky any longer. She´s always thought that kiss was her first mistake, but now she´s wondering whether the real mistake was running away. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sophie Amoss.

Journey with Drakulya into the Grand Canyon where the Earth reveals her story layer by layer, where she hides her secrets in the Great Unconformity, and where eons of time are carved and scrambled in stone. In the unworldly world of Deep Canyon, Drakulya confronts a rogue nosferatu sculptor who would capture in stone the awesome power of time, life energy, and primal consciousness. A nosferatu who would capture in time, anyone to serve his purpose, even a young runaway searching for her father and her remembered childhood home in Deep Canyon. Drakulya and his team of breathing assistants will need more than human weapons, more than the intellectual insights of Darwin, and more than the magical powers of Merlin, to rescue the captives and confront an alien consciousness within and of the Earth. Drawn to the Grand Canyon where the Earth exposes her life line, Edgar Tyrrell, a nosferatu sculptor builds a home on the South Rim. Edgar would capture the very forces of the Earth in his stone statues. Hidden within a Great Unconformity Tyrrell´s workshop offers a base from which he can work and travel through time. He needs helpers. A young woman artist from 1965 is entrapped. She lures a 1935 CCC worker into Tyrrell´s camp. Together the captives are plotting Tyrrell´s destruction and a way back to normal time. Sixty years later, one of Tyrrell´s young breathing relatives goes missing in the Canyon. Private detective Joe Keogh is hired for the search. Sensing the presence of nosferatu Joe calls on Mr. Strangeways aka Drakulya. Accessing the situation, Drakulya returns to England seeking the wisdom of Darwin, Merlin and his beloved Mina. Much more than a dangerous rogue nosferatu awaits in Deep Canyon. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin Bloodworth. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/007166/bk_adbl_007166_sample.mp3.
