Silent Wife, The  Silenciadas (Spanish edition) Audiobook

Silent Wife, The Silenciadas (Spanish edition)

Author: Karin Slaughter Narrator: Sara Vivanco Release Date: March 2021

El inspector Will Trent recibe una información inquietante mientras indaga sobre la muerte de un preso: uno de los reclusos asegura ser inocente de la despiadada agresión de la que fue acusado hace años. Afirma que unos policías corruptos, encabezados por Jeffrey Tolliver, le tendieron una trampa para inculparlo y que el verdadero responsable, un asesino que lleva años sistemáticamente atacando a mujeres en el estado de Georgia, sigue libre. El recluso le ofrece a Will la información que necesita para resolver el caso que actualmente investiga a cambio de que reabra el suyo y averigüe más sobre al difunto Tolliver. Apenas unos días antes una joven ha sido brutalmente asesinada en un parque al norte de Georgia: ¿será casualidad, u obra del presunto asesino en serie? A medida que Will indaga ambos crímenes, se percata de que la clave de todo es Tolliver. Pero ha pasado casi una década: tiempo suficiente para que los recuerdos se tornen borrosos, los testigos y las pruebas desaparezcan, y las mentiras se conviertan en verdades. Will se halla, además, ante otra disyuntiva: solo puede resolver estos misterios con la ayuda de su novia, la forense Sara Linton: viuda de Tolliver. Cuando el pasado y presente chocan, Will se da cuenta de que todo lo que valora está en peligro…  Karin Slaughter es una de las novelistas más aclamadas y leídas del panorama literario internacional. Ha publicado una veintena de novelas, de las que se han vendido más de 35 millones de ejemplares en 120 países de todo el mundo. Entre ellas destacan las series de Grant County y Will Trent, así como Cop Town —nominada al premio Edgar—, Flores cortadas, La buena hija, ¿Sabes quién es? y La última viuda. Las novelas de Grant County y Will Trent se adaptarán próximamente para televisión, y Netflix ha iniciado ya la producción de una serie basada en su novela ¿Sabes quién es?.

21st Birthday: (Women’s Murder Club 21) Audiobook

21st Birthday: (Women’s Murder Club 21)

Author: James Patterson Narrator: January Lavoy Release Date: March 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. In the latest book in the globally bestselling Women's Murder Club series, Sergeant Lindsay Boxer vows to protect a twenty-year-old victim long enough for her to see her twenty-first birthday. When a distraught mother pleads with San Francisco Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas to investigate the disappearance of her daughter Tara and baby granddaughter Lorrie, Cindy immediately loops in SFPD Sergeant Lindsay Boxer. The prime suspect is Tara's schoolteacher husband, Lucas Burke, but he tells a conflicting story that paints Tara as a wayward wife, not a missing person. While the city's chief medical examiner, Claire Washburn, harbours theories that run counter to the police investigation of the Burke case, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano sizes up Lucas as a textbook domestic offender - until he puts forward a theory of his own that could connect the dots on a constellation of killings. As the case grows into something far bigger than any of them could have imagined, the four friends will need each other to help unpick the truth from a web of lies. © James Patterson 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

The Dark Heart of Florence: A Lady Emily Mystery Audiobook

The Dark Heart of Florence: A Lady Emily Mystery

Author: Tasha Alexander Narrator: Bianca Amato Release Date: March 2021

In the next Lady Emily Mystery The Dark Heart of Florence, critically acclaimed author Tasha Alexander transports listeners to the legendary city of Florence, where Lady Emily and Colin must solve a murder with clues leading back to the time of the Medici. In 1903, tensions between Britain and Germany are starting to loom over Europe, something that has not gone unnoticed by Lady Emily and her husband, Colin Hargreaves. An agent of the Crown, Colin carries the weight of the Empire, but his focus is drawn to Italy by a series of burglaries at his daughter’s palazzo in Florence—burglaries that might have international ramifications. He and Emily travel to Tuscany where, soon after their arrival, a stranger is thrown to his death from the roof onto the marble palazzo floor. Colin’s trusted colleague and fellow agent, Darius Benton-Stone, arrives to assist Colin, who insists their mission must remain top secret. Finding herself excluded from the investigation, Emily secretly launches her own clandestine inquiry into the murder, aided by her spirited and witty friend, Cécile. They soon discover that the palazzo may contain a hidden treasure dating back to the days of the Medici and the violent reign of the fanatic monk, Savonarola—days that resonate in the troubled early twentieth century, an uneasy time full of intrigue, duplicity, and warring ideologies. Emily and Cécile race to untangle the cryptic clues leading them through the Renaissance city, but an unimagined danger follows closely behind. And when another violent death puts Emily directly in the path of a killer, there’s much more than treasure at stake… A Macmillan Audio production from Minotaur Books

Win: New from the #1 bestselling creator of the hit Netflix series The Stranger

Author: Harlan Coben Narrator: Steven Weber Release Date: March 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. From the #1 bestselling author and creator of the hit Netflix series The Stranger comes a riveting new thriller, starring the new hero Windsor Horne Lockwood III - or Win, as he is known to his (few) friends ... Over twenty years ago, heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. Patricia escaped, but so did her captors, and the items stolen from her family were never recovered. Until now. On New York's Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside two objects of note: a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. For the first time in years, the authorities have a lead not only on Patricia's kidnapping but also on another FBI cold case - with the suitcase and painting both pointing them towards one man. Windsor Horne Lockwood III - or Win as his few friends call him - doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up in this dead man's apartment. But he's interested - especially when the FBI tell him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism, and that he may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades. But Win has three things the FBI does not:: a personal connection to the case, a large fortune, and his own unique brand of justice ... 'A great book with a brilliant, brilliant central character' RICHARD ARMITAGE 'Wow. The new mystery thriller by Harlan Coben kept me up late three nights in a row ... It's called WIN.
