The Big Lie: A Jack Swyteck Novel Audiobook

The Big Lie: A Jack Swyteck Novel

Author: James Grippando Narrator: Jonathan Davis Release Date: February 2020

As the Electoral College battle for the White House lands in a Florida courtroom, Miami attorney Jack Swyteck has never felt farther from the truth, fighting for a faithless elector, caught between a corrupt president and his manipulative opponent—with each revelation more explosive than the next. The country is reeling. For the sixth time in American history, the winner of the popular vote will not occupy the Oval Office. President Malcolm MacLeod, the Machiavellian incumbent, was spared from impeachment only because his political foes were certain they would oust him at the ballot box. Now, he appears to have secured a second term, thanks to a narrow victory in the Electoral College. His opponent, Florida Senator Evan Stahl, saw his campaign rocked by allegations of an extramarital affair—with another man. Despite the salacious headline-making scandal and the surrounding media frenzy, most Americans chose Stahl to lead the politically polarized nation. But Stahl is refusing to concede. Backed by millions of supporters, he looks to individual members of the Electoral College to cross party lines. Gun lobbyist Charlotte Holmes is one of Floridas twenty-nine electors who is bound by law and by oath to cast her vote for MacLeod, who won Florida by the thinnest of margins. When Charlotte announces that she intends to vote her conscience and throw the Electoral College to Stahl, the president and his Florida machine haul her into court on felony charges—which, for some, isn't nearly punishment enough. Miami attorney Jack Swyteck is going to use every legal maneuver he can to keep his new client free—and alive. MacLeod's hand-picked prosecutor is determined to prove Charlotte is unfit to cast a vote. Dredging through her past, he's looking for skeletons to humiliate and discredit her, while others with far deadlier intentions have begun acting on their threats. As the pressure mounts, Charlotte and Jack must decide how far they'll go to stand their ground in the stand-your-ground state.

Behind Closed Doors: The Complete Series 1-3

Author: Clara Glynn Narrator: Claire Rushbrook, Susie Riddell Release Date: December 2019

Series 1-3 of the BBC Radio 4 legal drama, starring Claire Rushbrook and Clare Corbett Behind Closed Doors is a courtroom drama with a difference – it centres around civil law, not criminal. In these nine plays, London barrister Rebecca Nyman takes on cases ranging from workplace harassment to the sensitive, secret trial of a terrorist and a morally complex ‘right to die’ hearing. In Series 1, Nyman represents a senior policewoman in a case of sexist bullying at work in One of the Lads; while Tilting the Odds sees her helping an equine vet accused of serious professional misconduct. In Safe House, a suspected terrorist has his movement and activities severely restricted by the Security Services – can Nyman clear his name so he can get his life back? Series 2 features A Bad Night Out, in which a man claiming wrongful arrest seeks police compensation; Excluded, which sees a teenager facing permanent exclusion from school; and Catastrophic Injury, in which a mother claims her baby’s cerebral palsy is due to medical negligence, and is fighting the hospital for compensation. In Series 3’s Contact, a sperm donor is trying to get a court order to allow him to see 'his' daughter, but Nyman’s client, the mother, wants him to keep his distance. In Section, the barrister hopes to convince a tribunal that a patient who has spent seven years in a secure mental hospital is fit to be released. And in Protection, Rebecca represents a man whose wife has been in a minimally conscious state for over three years – should she be allowed to die? Written by award-winning dramatist Clara Glynn, these nine compelling dramas provide an intriguing glimpse into the little-known world of civil litigation, with all its challenges, complexities and controversies.
