The Darkest Glare: A True Story of Murder, Blackmail, and Real Estate Greed in 1979 Los Angeles Audiobook

The Darkest Glare: A True Story of Murder, Blackmail, and Real Estate Greed in 1979 Los Angeles

Author: Chip Jacobs Narrator: Joel Richards Release Date: March 2021

Late-seventies Los Angeles was rampant with killers and shady characters, but all the go-getters at Space Matters saw was possibility. Richard Kasparov was handsome and charismatic; his younger associate, Jerry Schneiderman, brilliant and nerdy. When the pair hired a veteran contractor to oversee construction, the space planning firm they operated out of a hip mansion in LA's Miracle Mile district appeared poised to transform the boundless skyline into their jackpot. After the promising team imploded, however, the orderly lines on their blueprints succumbed to treachery and secrets. To get even, one of the ex-partners launched a murder-for-profit corporation using, among other peculiar sorts, a bantam-sized epileptic with a deadeye shot. The hapless criminals required a number of attempts to execute their first target. Once they did, on a rainy night in the San Fernando Valley, the surviving founder of Space Matters was thrown into a pressure cooker existence out of a Coen Brothers movie. Threatened for money he didn't have, he donned a disguise, survived a heart-pounding encounter at the La Brea Tar Pits, and relied on an ex-Israeli mercenary for protection. In the end, he had to outfox a glowering murderer, while asking if you can ever really know anyone in a town where dirty deals send men to their graves.

Transient Desires Audiobook

Transient Desires

Author: Donna Leon Narrator: David Sibley Release Date: March 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. In his many years as a Commissario, Guido Brunetti has seen all manner of crime and known intuitively how to navigate the various pathways in his native Venice to discover the person responsible. Now, in the thirtieth novel in Donna Leon's masterful series, he faces a heinous crime committed outside his jurisdiction. He is drawn in innocently enough: two young American women have been badly injured in a boating accident, joy riding in the Laguna with two young Italians. However, Brunetti's curiosity is aroused by the behaviour of the young men, who abandoned the victims after taking them to the hospital. If the injuries were the result of an accident, why did they want to avoid association with it? As Brunetti and his colleague, Claudia Griffoni, investigate the incident, they discover that one of the young men works for a man rumoured to be involved in more sinister night-time activities in the Laguna. To get to the bottom of what proves to be a gut-wrenching case, Brunetti needs to enlist the help of both the Carabinieri and the Guardia di Costiera. Determining how much trust he and Griffoni can put in these unfamiliar colleagues adds to the difficulty of solving a peculiarly horrible crime whose perpetrators are technologically brilliant and ruthlessly organised. Donna Leon's thirtieth Brunetti novel is as powerful as any she has written, testing Brunetti to his limits, forcing him to listen very carefully for the truth. © Donna Leon 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

El ladrón de meriendas (Comisario Montalbano 3) Audiobook

El ladrón de meriendas (Comisario Montalbano 3)

Author: Andrea Camilleri Narrator: Javier Portugués Release Date: March 2021

Vuelve el inspector Salvo Montalbano y su particular forma de ver el mundo desde el imaginario pueblo de Vigàta, en Sicilia. Tercera entrega de la serie del comisario que ha conseguido un espacio propio y original en la literatura policiaca contemporánea. Sus anteriores andanzas han trazado su polifacético perfil que, como demuestra esta nueva aventura, está lejos de agotarse en el simple estereotipo. En esta ocasión el comisario debe investigar el asesinato de un comerciante jubilado, cuya amante, una joven tunecina desaparecida tras el crimen, es objeto de todas las sospechas. Sin embargo, las pesquisas guían a Montalbano hacia el turbio mundo de los servicios secretos y su sucia guerra contra el terrorismo internacional. La razón de Estado se ve sometida a su implacable instinto de justicia, «quijotesco» según uno de los agentes secretos. Al mismo tiempo, la trama nos reserva sorpresas inusitadas, como un Montalbano profundamente conmovido por el destino del hijo de la joven acusada hasta el punto de proponerle matrimonio a su tan paciente como lejana compañera Livia. Como todas las obras de Camilleri que tanto disfrutan sus cientos de miles de lectores en todo el mundo, El ladrón de meriendas es un irónico pero tierno recorrido por la cara más humana del homo sapiens, con personajes cuyo realismo surge precisamente de la penetrante y compasiva mirada de don Salvo. El duro universo de la inmigración ilegal, de los barrios populares mediterráneos, de los fríos burócratas al servicio del Estado, o el de la solidaridad femenina aparecen plasmados con pasmosa nitidez en cada una de las escenas de la novela, convirtiéndonos inevitablemente en testigos y cómplices no sólo de la intriga sino también de un entorno que acaba siéndonos sorprendentemente familiar.

Su profesor, Bobby Nock, un afroamericano de veinticinco años, se convierte en el principal sospechoso cuando salen a la luz unos mensajes ilícitos que había intercambiado con la alumna y se halla sangre de la víctima en su coche. El proceso judicial se convierte en el más mediático de la última década. La fiscalía cree estar ante un caso sólido y fácil de ganar, pero Maya Seale, una joven que forma parte del jurado popular, está convencida de la inocencia de Bobby y comenzará a influir en el resto de los miembros para declararlo no culpable.
