The Atlantis Stone

Author: Nick Hawkes Narrator: Grant Cartwright Release Date: June 2021

Felicity discovers the 'Atlantis stone' whilst scuba diving on the south-east coast of Australia in a treacherous area known as 'the ship's graveyard.' Her diving is part of her research into the fabled 'mahogany ship,' a wreck sighted on the beach by early white Australians. She meets Benjamin as a result of her love of diving. He is an indigenous Australian, but past traumas have caused him to disown his aboriginal heritage. Benjamin is now struggling to find his identity in the Western world, and has retreated to his workshop where he ekes out a living as a wood-turner. An attempt on his life propels him into Felicity's world of historic mysteries . . . and a quest that takes them to the ancient city of Cagliari in Sardinia. An anthropologist dying of cancer and an ex-Special Forces soldier with post-traumatic stress join them in an adventure that centers on a medieval treaty, a lust for gold, and an audacious plot to rewrite world history.

The Paris Librarian Audiobook

The Paris Librarian

Author: Mark Pryor Narrator: Todd Mclaren Release Date: May 2021

Hugo Marston's friend Paul Rogers dies unexpectedly in a locked room at the American Library in Paris. The police conclude that Rogers died of natural causes, but Hugo is certain mischief is afoot. As he pokes around the library, Hugo discovers that rumors are swirling around some recently donated letters from American actress Isabelle Severin. The reason: they may indicate that the actress had aided the Resistance in frequent trips to France toward the end of World War II. Even more dramatic is the legend that the Severin collection also contains a dagger, one she used to kill an SS officer in 1944. Hugo delves deeper into the stacks at the American library and finally realizes that the history of this case isn't what anyone suspected. But to prove he's right, Hugo must return to the scene of a decades-old crime.

Blackbird Fly: Number 1 in the Bennett Sisters Mystery series Audiobook

Blackbird Fly: Number 1 in the Bennett Sisters Mystery series

Author: Lise Mcclendon Narrator: Denice Stradling Release Date: May 2021

Merle Bennett realizes almost immediately after her husband suddenly dies that it was no wonder she didn't know anything about him. Still, the will’s quite a shock. And so is an intriguing surprise—Harry left her a family home in a tiny French village. Or maybe a family home. Because who was Harry’s family? Finding out is half the fun.Merle sets out to claim her inheritance, adolescent son in tow, and thus begins a sojourn reminiscent of A Year in Provence, or perhaps Under The Tuscan Sun. Malcouziac, Merle’s tiny Dordogne town, is the quintessential village—just perfect for a murder. And a rollicking good time. Once Merle gets there, she finds…well, France! An unexpected romance. Mystery galore. Murder-- and not just murder, but the unnerving experience of being a suspect. Once her passport is confiscated, what can she do but stay and restore her ancient battered house? While enjoying the tender attention of the unusually well-educated, handsome and…yes, quite mysterious roofer she’s hired. Particularly recommended for those who love France or have plans to visit there. Mystery lovers, chick lit fans, and cozy fanatics will all find it très chouette— more prosaically, simply awesome and formidable! From the author: A novel has a distinct setting but it's the people who drive the action. My research led me to seek out a picturesque bastide village, the stone walls crumbling a bit, the hilltop location surrounded by vineyards and lush, tree-tangled ravines, narrow pedestrian streets and half-renovated houses. Without the setting the story wouldn't have come alive in my imagination. Whether you look out your real window, or the window in your mind, I hope Blackbird Fly brings it all to life for you. Pour a glass of wine and enjoy.

El reino Audiobook

El reino

Author: Jo Nesbo Narrator: Luis David García Márquez Release Date: May 2021

TRAS CONQUISTAR A 50 MILLONES DE LECTORES, REGRESA EL REY DE LA NOVELA NEGRA CON UN THRILLER LITERARIO MONUMENTAL En lo alto de una montaña, en los páramos de Noruega, hay un viejo caserón habitado por un hombre solitario. Se llama Roy, es experto en pájaros, lleva la gasolinera del pueblo y en cada casa corre un rumor sobre él. Su vida gris se reabre con la vuelta de Carl, su hermano pequeño. No se ven desde que se fue a estudiar a Estados Unidos hace quince años, tras la muerte trágica de sus padres en un accidente de coche. El hijo pródigo trae consigo a su flamante esposa, Shannon, una enigmática arquitecta: han ideado un plan para construir un gran hotel en los antiguos terrenos familiares y podrían hacerse ricos, no solo ellos sino además los vecinos de la zona. Sin embargo, pronto llegan también los malos presagios. Porque es difícil reinventarse en una comunidad pequeña donde todos se conocen, y a los habitantes del lugar les costará olvidar ciertos episodios del pasado. Sobre todo, al agente Olsen, hijo del antiguo alguacil, que desapareció tiempo atrás en extrañas circunstancias. El reino es un thriller gigantesco, adictivo y complejo, que retrata como ningún libro de Nesbø las pasiones humanas, y que ha sido considerado inmediatamente por la crítica una obra maestra. Los lectores han dicho... «Con El reino, Nesbø amplía aún más sus dominios. Si nunca lo has leído, empieza por aquí: pura adrenalina literaria.» Domingo Villar «Jo Nesbø convierte al lector en un súbdito que le seguirá apasionadamente hasta el final de la historia.» Alicia Giménez Bartlett «El rey de la novela negra nórdica abandona las convenciones del género en este thriller ambientado en un pueblo de montaña y protagonizado por dos hermanos unidos por una compleja lealtad, un pasado trágico y secretos en el armario. [...] Su mejor libro.» Fernando Díaz de Quijano, El Cultural «Carl y Roy Opgard son bastante más que un mero placebo: droga de la máxima pureza para los aficionados al género negro.» Ismael Marinero, El Mundo «Una tragedia familiar de ambición personal ambientada en una zona rural de Noruega, un escenario claustrofóbico, con una historia que guarda similitudes con la de Caín y Abel.» Anna Abella, El Periódico «Este libro es especial en todos los sentidos.» Stephen King «Vuelve a confirmarse quién es el rey del thriller.» Financial Times «Imposible dejar de leer.» The Washington Post «Te agarra y va abriéndote una puerta tras otra. Si entras, no podrás salir.» La Stampa «Una tenebrosa delicia, comparable a las novelas de Ripley.» The Times «Un thriller terriblemente bueno.» Dagbladet «Atrapa al lector en un abrazo hipnótico.» Daily Express «Una historia tremendamente sólida con unas dosis de suspense psicológico y erótico casi insoportables. Fascinante en todos los sentidos.» Jyllandsposten «Retorcida, violenta, apasionante y muy perturbadora.» Buzzfeed «Nesbø demuestra ser un excelente narrador. Sabe presentar un mundo sombrío con un poderío implacable.» New York Journal of Books «Con una pizca de Lev Tolstoi y otra de Agatha Christie, El reino explora el mal que puede anidar en una familia. De nuevo, Nesbø ha entregado un éxito incontestable.» La Repubblica

His career derailed, the veteran cop is reduced to investigating penny-ante murders-one of which may lead somewhere very big indeed.

''Ten o'clock! I must press on, or they'll all be in bed, I suppose. Beastly respectable, old Carruthers, from what I can make out from my mother, and what little I saw of him! Servants up to prayers and all that kind of thing. No chance of getting hold of her, if I can't make her know I am there, before those prayers come off. Glass of cold water and flat candlestick directly they're over, I suppose, and a kiss to Missy and God bless you all round, and off to bed! By George, what a life! What an infernal, moping, ghostly, dreary existence! And yet they've got money, these scoundrels, and old Carruthers could give you a cheque that would make you wink. Could! Yes, but wouldn't, especially to me! Ba, ba, black sheep, and all the rest of it! Here's a poor tainted mutton for you, without the wind being in the least tempered to him! Jove, it goes through me like a knife! There'll be a public somewhere near, I suppose, and when I have seen my mother, I'll step off there and have some hot rum-and-water before turning in. Hold up, there, you hawbuck brute, pull your other rein! What's the use of your lamps, if they don't show you people in the road?''

The Cook of the Halcyon is the twenty-seventh Inspector Montalbano mystery from the master of Sicilian crime, Andrea Camilleri. Moments later the all-white schooner, which looked like a hospital ship, began to pass ever so slowly before him, as if wanting to show itself off in all its beauty.
