Selective Spells Audiobook

Selective Spells

Author: Willow Mason Narrator: Erin O'flaherty Release Date: April 2021

Just because the coven excommunicated me, doesn't mean I'm a bad witch. Those ladies should learn to take a joke. In the meantime, though, it's left me in a bind. I need to get a real job, in a normal human occupation. Yuck. But when I see a sign at the community centre asking for an assistant—only witches need apply—I feel like my fortunes might be trending up. Sure, there's a murder to solve, a killer on my tail, and a pittance in my bank account, but at least it's not working checkout in a supermarket. And did I mention my new co-worker? Or 'boss' as he likes to call it. He's a detective sergeant with years of specialised training under his belt. Somewhere along the way he also hacked off some powerful people. At least, I think that's why they turned him into a dog. Hm. Maybe the supermarket would be a better bet after all.

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.

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
