The Between: A Novel Audiobook

The Between: A Novel

Author: Tananarive Due Narrator: Kevin Kenerly Release Date: October 2021

“An extraordinary work of humane imagination . . . call it magic realism with soul.”—Locus “Finely honed . . . always engages and frequently surprises.”—New York Times Book Review A man risks his soul and his sanity to save his family from malevolent forces in this brilliant novel of horror and the supernatural from the award-winning pioneer of speculative fiction and author of the classic My Soul to Keep.  When Hilton was a boy, his grandmother sacrificed her life to save him from drowning. Thirty years later, he begins to suspect that he was never meant to survive that accident, and that dark forces are working to rectify that mistake.  When Hilton's wife, the only elected African American judge in Dade County, Florida, begins to receive racist hate mail from a man she once prosecuted, Hilton becomes obsessed with protecting his family. The demons lurking outside are matched by his internal terrors—macabre nightmares, more intense and disturbing than any he has ever experienced. Are these bizarre dreams the dark imaginings of a man losing his hold on sanity—or are they harbingers of terrible events to come?  As Hilton battles both the sociopath threatening to destroy his family and the even more terrifying enemy stalking his sleep, the line between reality and fantasy dissolves . . .  Chilling and utterly convincing, The Between is the haunting story of a man desperately trying to hold on to the people and life he loves as he slowly loses himself.

The truth is, ever since Maud was a girl, death has seemed to follow her. In these six interlocking stories, memories of unfortunate incidents from Maud's past keep bubbling to the surface. Meanwhile, certain problems in the present require immediate attention.

Por mi gran culpa Audiobook

Por mi gran culpa

Author: Raúl Ariza Narrator: Salvador Serrano Release Date: October 2021

'Por mi gran culpa' es la novela ganadora del XXIV Premio de Novela Negra Ciudad de Getafe 2020. 'Por mi gran culpa' quizá sea el primer y único audiolibro narrado y protagonizado por Dios. Adán y Lidia —que en realidad se llama Eva— son una pareja que de repente ve truncada su aparente felicidad después de recibir una inesperada llamada. Tras ese incidente, Eva, que durante el tiempo que ha compartido con Adán se ha hecho pasar por otra persona, ocultando su verdadera identidad, se ve obligada a huir precipitadamente para tratar de evitar que recaigan sobre ella y sus seres queridos las nefastas consecuencias fruto de un grave error cometido años atrás. Durante ese frenético viaje que va a durar apenas 24 horas, y que va a acabar enfrentándola a Tarasca, un narcotraficante y proxeneta que rivaliza en crueldad con el mismísimo diablo, Eva va a estar acompañada de un viejo y misterioso taxista —a la postre el narrador de esta historia—, que no es otro que no es otro que el trasunto de Dios. Un dios débil, dubitativo y atormentado. Transitando por la mejor tradición del género negro, ambientada en diferentes localizaciones y salpicada de inesperados saltos temporales que ayudarán a descifrar las razones del siniestro destino que les aguarda a los personajes, en esta trepidante novela el lector será testigo directo del eterno enfrentamiento entre el Bien y el Mal, un enfrentamiento masculino y machista en el que, de forma irremediable, siempre salen perdiendo las mujeres. Subyace, por tanto, una sutil pero contundente denuncia de la violencia de género.

La reina del exilio Audiobook

La reina del exilio

Author: Herminia Luque Narrator: Nuria Martínez Release Date: October 2021

La abolición de la ley sálica in articulo mortis y la llegada al trono de Isabel II desatan el conflictivo siglo XIX en España, lleno de guerras fratricidas, conspiraciones y misterios. En 1882, Isabel II vive su exilio parisino en el palacio de Castilla, entre nobles y oropeles pero lejos ya del poder. A esa corte isabelina llegará un atractivo caballero, Julio Uceda, enviado por Sagasta con documentos comprometedores para la reina; y también Teresa, una joven criada y educada en las Niñas de Leganés, un colegio de huérfanas de Madrid, cuya visión del mundo dista mucho de la vida en palacio, demasiado alejada de los desfavorecidos. Entre ellos surgirá una pasión amorosa que deberá navegar entre conjuras políticas y el ambiente sofocante y corrupto de una monarquía en decadencia, donde nada es lo que parece, pero que, a la vez, todo es tan hipócrita y corrompido como se muestra. Con una mirada insólita e ingeniosa, y gracias a unas voces y personajes femeninos especialmente logrados en esta novela histórica y a una estructura narrativa original y compleja, Herminia Luque nos brinda una intriga palaciega; una aproximación a la figura histórica de Isabel II, a la par que una magnífica recreación, precisa e irónica, del siglo XIX, que incluye una mirada crítica a los tan contrapuestos contextos de la sociedad de la época.
