Author: Jordan Farmer Narrator: Will Damron Release Date: May 2020

A captivating, gritty, and tender story of a reclusive musician and the environmental disaster that threatens his small town and changes his life forever. Hollis Bragg lives on the fringes. The hunchbacked son of a West Virginia hill preacher, he now resides in rural isolation next to the burned-out husk of his father's church, and earns his living ghostwriting songs for a popular band that left the poverty and corruption of Appalachia and never looked back. It's the life he prefers, free from the harsh glare of the spotlight and attachments that lead only to heartbreak. Then, much to his consternation, he's discovered by Russell Watson, a local musician and fan who also happens to be the rebellious son of the local chemical company magnate. When a devastating toxic spill at the Watson chemical plant poisons the local water, it sets off an unpredictable series of events as Hollis witnesses a murder, faces a shocking betrayal, and begins to come to terms with his body and his past. Soon Hollis will find that in losing his anonymity and reclaiming his music, he can transform his future; and in opening himself up to the world, he might find redemption.

Author: Caitlin Mullen Narrator: Corey Brill, Dara Rosenberg, Hillary Huber, Piper Goodeve Release Date: March 2020

In this sophisticated, suspenseful debut reminiscent of Laura Lippman and Megan Miranda, two young women become unlikely friends during one fateful summer in Atlantic City as mysterious disappearances hit dangerously close to home. Summer has come to Atlantic City but the boardwalk is empty of tourists, the casino lights have dimmed, and two Jane Does are laid out in the marshland behind the Sunset Motel, just west of town. Only one person even knows they're there. Meanwhile, Clara, a young boardwalk psychic, struggles to attract clients for the tarot readings that pay her rent. When she begins to experience very real and disturbing visions, she suspects they could be related to the recent cases of women gone missing in town. When Clara meets Lily, an ex-Soho art gallery girl who is working at a desolate casino spa and reeling from a personal tragedy, she thinks Lily may be able to help her. But Lily has her own demons to face. If they can put the pieces together in time, they may save another lost girl—so long as their efforts don't attract perilous attention first. Can they break the ill-fated cycle, or will they join the other victims? A "beautifully written, thoughtful page-turner" (Chloe Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Immortalists), Please See Us is an evocative and compelling psychological thriller that explores the intersection of womanhood, power, and violence.

Author: Eryk Pruitt Narrator: Andrew Eiden Release Date: September 2019

Meet Jack Jordan. He's a smooth-talking con artist with a penchant for the fast life.

They've told their fair share of lies, and she's having a devil of a time remembering what's the truth. And recently, she's been hearing voices. Unfortunately for both of them, she's the brains of the operation. Furthermore, they have begun to tire of one another. For these two career grifters, the sleepy East Texas countryside is but another pit stop on their rampage across the American South. Will it be their last?

Mortukaam: A Psychological Noir Audiobook

Mortukaam: A Psychological Noir

It is a story of two close friends who are similarly placed in life - be it their shattered future, unfulfilled dreams, frustrations and or their moribund state of persistent and existential crisis. Their perception of life is full of black humor - somewhat of an overbearing and overwhelming callous attitude that amuse them no end but to channelize their dark thoughts through incessant flow of garrulous dialogues with a certain degree of continuity that dare to defy even the shadows of death. Social conditioning have turned them into nonchalant commentators about life that borders smirk and apathy about every gory development that they witness happening around them all the time which affects their life and their fragile family as well. It is therefore perhaps ironical yet apt to see in equal measure that when one of them gets killed, the other gets deeply immersed in the act of detection, helping the police on one level yet simultaneously and strangely that same one remains conceited in a fabricated world of self and make belief on another level. What did the investigation reveal and what role did the surviving friend play in the ensuing drama?? Tune in to this dark psychological masterpiece from the celebrated pen of Bani Basu in yet another classic from 'MyStoryGenie' Bengali Audiobooks series.
