Hearts and Harbingers , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 15...

On the very outskirts of polite society, Millicent Harbinger has always found a way to cover the gaming debts of her wastrel brother, Duncan. His most recent losing streak is bound to ruin them, however, and her brother´s solution is to arrange for Mill to marry the odious Lord Wart. In desperation, Mill decides to anonymously sell her virtue at a well-reputed brothel and kill two birds with one stone - she will have enough money to cover the debt, and her status as a fallen woman will dissuade Lord Wart from claiming her as his bride. Jasper Goldeby, Marquess of Holder, takes one look at Mill´s piercing green eyes and purchases her favors at double the asking price - a fortune that could support the Harbingers for life. The night Mill and Jasper share astonishes and transforms them both - and Jasper quickly realizes one night could never be enough. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ellen Lange.

Beauty Is a Wound , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 988min
9,95 € *

The English-language debut of Indonesia´s rising star. The epic novel Beauty Is a Wound combines history, satire, family tragedy, legend, humor, and romance in a sweeping polyphony. The beautiful Indo prostitute Dewi Ayu and her four daughters are beset by incest, murder, bestiality, rape, insanity, monstrosity, and the often vengeful undead. Kurniawan´s gleefully grotesque hyperbole functions as a scathing critique of his young nation´s troubled past: the rapacious offhand greed of colonialism; the chaotic struggle for independence; the 1965 mass murders of perhaps a million ´´Communists´´, followed by three decades of Suharto´s despotic rule. Beauty Is a Wound astonishes from its opening line: ´´One afternoon on a weekend in May, Dewi Ayu rose from her grave after being dead for 21 years....´´ Drawing on local sources - folktales and the all-night shadow puppet plays, with their bawdy wit and epic scope - and inspired by Melville and Gogol, Kurniawan´s distinctive voice brings something luscious yet astringent to contemporary literature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Davis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/025959/bk_adbl_025959_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Clive Merrison and Andrew Sachs star in three brand new BBC Radio 4 full-cast adventures. How many times did Dr John Watson tantalise us with a passing reference to a mystery that his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, never wrote about in full? In these full-cast original adventures, Bert Coules, the chief dramatist of BBC Radio 4’s celebrated complete Sherlock Holmes canon, has imaginatively fleshed out three such unrecorded cases. ´The Remarkable Performance of Mr Frederick Merridew´: A night at the music hall ends in tragedy. Is it possible that Sherlock Holmes has finally met his match? ´The Eyes of Horus´: How could a priceless Egyptian artefact vanish from a locked casket in a locked safety-deposit box in a locked vault in a locked bank? ´The Marlbourne Point Mystery´: In the bleak beauty of an isolated coastal headland, Holmes and Watson discover death, treachery, betrayal, and a remarkable recluse with an extraordinary friend. Then the enigmatic Mycroft Holmes astonishes his brother as the shocking truth behind the mystery of the politician, the lighthouse and the trained cormorant is finally revealed. 1.

The Little Stranger , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 967min

Exclusive to download: includes an interview with Sarah Waters giving an insight into the story behind The Little Stranger. A ghost story from one of Britain´s finest and best loved writers. After her award-winning trilogy of Victorian novels, Sarah Waters turned to the 1940s and wrote The Night Watch, a tender and tragic novel set against the backdrop of wartime Britain. Short-listed for both the Orange and the Man Booker, it went straight to number one in the best-seller chart. In a dusty postwar summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, the clock in its stable yard permanently fixed at twenty to nine. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his. Prepare yourself. From this wonderful writer who continues to astonish us, now comes a chilling ghost story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Vance.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

A riveting novel of feeling and suspense in which grief and punishment become tragically intertwined. At the close of a beautiful summer day near the quiet Connecticut town where they live, the Learner family, Ethan and Grace, their children, Josh and Emma, stop at a gas station on their way home from a concert. Josh Learner, lost in a 10-year-old´s private world, is standing at the edge of the road when a car comes racing around the bend. He is hit and instantly killed. The car speeds away. From this moment forward, Reservation Road becomes a harrowing countdown to the confrontation between two very different men. The hit-and-run driver is a small-town lawyer named Dwight Arno, a man in desperate need of a second chance. Dwight is also the father of a 10-year-old boy, who was asleep in the car the night Josh Learner was killed. Now Dwight must decide whether to run from his crime or to pay the price for what he did. Ethan Learner, a respected professor of literature at a small New England college, has seen his orderly world shattered in a single moment, yet persists in the belief that he can find the unknown man who killed his son. Behind their stories are those of 8-year-old Emma, who can´t stop thinking her brother´s death was her fault, and of Grace, who must find the strength to keep herself and her family together, and to be the mother Emma so badly needs. In a gripping narrative woven from the voices of Ethan, Dwight, and Grace, Reservation Road tells the story of two ordinary families facing an extraordinary crisis; an audiobook that sounds like a thriller but opens up a world rich with psychological nuance and emotional wisdom. Reservation Road explores the terrain of grief even as it astonishes with unexpected redemption: powerful and wrenching and impossible to put down. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stanley Tucci, John Shea, Anne Twomey. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/000937/bk_rand_000937_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
