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.

What if Mary Tudor had lived long enough to re-establish English Catholicism firmly? Elizabeth I had died young of smallpox? Charles I´s elder brother Henry had been King instead? Or Charles and Parliament had reached agreement after the Civil War?
As a member of the Bourbon Street Boys private security firm, Antoinette ´´Toni´´ Delacourte is one strong woman, but despite her reputation for being tough as nails, she is haunted by her past mistakes. 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.
