The Wendigo Doll: A Short Horror Story Audiobook

The Wendigo Doll: A Short Horror Story

Author: Stories From The Attic Narrator: Robin Mcconnell Release Date: April 2021

In my family, the wendigo is not spoken of as a myth, in fact, if we can help it, it isn’t spoken of at all. For to even use the word is to invite things more horrible than you can imagine into the thoughts and into the home. Instead of the word, we have the doll. A small, hideous, figurine that has lived on our mantlepiece for generations. As a child I was forbidden to touch that figurine. As an adult, I found out why. The Wendigo Doll is a tale of myth, terror and a hunger that will never, ever, end.

City of The Djinn: A Short Horror Story Audiobook

City of The Djinn: A Short Horror Story

Author: Stories From The Attic Narrator: Robin Mcconnell Release Date: April 2021

In the west, the ‘genie’ is a figure of fun. A pantomime character made of primary colours and cartoon features. An example, if ever there was one, of how the West tries to tame its terrors by laughing at them. In the East, in Nusaybin, people do not laugh at such things. Here the word ‘djinn’ is whispered in reverential hush. The things to which it refers are considered not only real, but dangerous. For in these places and to these people the djinn are not just stories, they are the cries in the desert, the heat of smokeless flame. Here the djinn are real and here, they mean you harm.

Working for Justice Audiobook

Working for Justice

Author: Amy B. Chesler Narrator: Libby Mcknight Release Date: April 2021

When beloved educator Hadas Winnick was murdered, her sleepy, affluent hometown of Calabasas was rocked to the core. More shocking than her killing, though, was the process of convicting her admittedly guilty murderer. Calabasas is a quiet, well-to-do California town often referred to as "The Bubble." But on September 25th, 2007, that bubble burst with the murder of one of its longtime residents-high school math teacher Hadas Winnick. The upscale community was rocked by her gruesome death, but as shocking as the tragedy seemed, the years of abuse she faced that preceded it were more so. Even more devastating still, was the effort and time it took to sentence her murderer to prison, and the power that our systems-in-place allowed him while on his way there. Follow Hadas's daughter, award-winning blogger Amy Chesler, on her often heart-wrenching-but eventually heart-warming-road to justice.

Sworn to Silence: The Truth Behind Robert Garrow and the Missing Bodies' Case Audiobook

Sworn to Silence: The Truth Behind Robert Garrow and the Missing Bodies' Case

Author: Jim Tracy Narrator: Chris Sorensen Release Date: April 2021

Why would two small-time American public defenders search, locate, and photograph the lifeless bodies of young women their client raped, murdered, and hid, and then leave the bodies where they found them and not tell authorities? And how did they have the audacity to meet with one of the fathers of a missing girl and tell him they knew nothing about her fate or whereabouts? When the nation eventually learned of the lawyers' actions, they were horrified and outraged that two officers of the law could act in a way that seemed beyond any concept of humanity. In Sworn to Silence, award winning reporter Jim Tracy tells the lawyers' story within the framework of a true crime narrative. He uncovers a criminal who police and the public never learned was an American serial killer. Tracy does so while taking the listener back briefly to American life in the early 1970s.

The victim’s identity and her secret relationship to Penny give Penny the perfect motive, sealing the deal. All the jury needs to decide now is where Penny will serve out her sentence.

Already reeling from tragedy after the sudden passing of her beloved husband a few years before, now Grace is on her knees, grateful that Massachusetts doesn't allow the death penalty. As Penny awaits trial in a state mental hospital, she is treated by Dr. Mitchell McHugh, a psychiatrist battling demons of his own. Grace’s determination to understand the why behind her daughter’s terrible crime fuels Mitch’s resolve to help the Francone family. Together, they set out in search of the truth about Penny, but discover instead a shocking hidden history of secrets, lies, and betrayals that threatens to consume them all. The perfect daughter. Is she fooling them all? A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press

Ocean Prey: A Lucas Davenport & Virgil Flowers novel Audiobook

Ocean Prey: A Lucas Davenport & Virgil Flowers novel

Author: John Sandford Narrator: Richard Ferrone Release Date: April 2021

Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers join forces on a deadly maritime case in the remarkable new novel from internationally bestselling author John Sandford. An off-duty Coast Guardsman is fishing with his family when he calls in some suspicious behaviour from a nearby boat. It's a snazzy craft, slick and outfitted with extra horsepower, and is zipping along until it slows to pick up a surfaced diver . . . a diver who was apparently alone, without his own boat, in the middle of the ocean. None of it makes sense, and his hunch is proved right when all three Guardsmen who come out to investigate are shot and killed. They're federal officers killed on the job, which means the case is the FBI's turf. When the FBI's investigation stalls out, they call in Lucas Davenport. And when his case turns lethal, Davenport will need to bring in every asset he can claim, including a detective with a fundamentally criminal mind: Virgil Flowers. 'One of the great novelists of all time' Stephen King 'A series writer who reads like a breath of fresh air' Daily Mirror 'John Sandford knows all there is to know about detonating the gut-level shocks of a good thriller' New York Times Book Review 'John Sandford has the Midas touch' Huffington Post 'Delivers twists to the very last sentence' Daily Mail 'Crime writer John Sandford is one of the best around' Sun
