The Nanny: Can you trust her with your child?

Author: Gilly Macmillan Narrator: Ben Eliot, Clare Corbett, Patience Tomlinson Release Date: May 2019

Penguin Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Nanny by Gilly MacMillan. The tension is simmering. The lies are piling up. Who do you trust? 'With its buried secrets, shifting allegiances, and creeping sense of dread, The Nanny pulses with tension until its shocking conclusion. I absolutely loved it!' SHARI LAPENA Seven-year-old Jocelyn loves her nanny more than her own mother. When her nanny disappears one night, Jo never gets over the loss. How could she vanish without saying goodbye? Thirty years on, Jo is forced to return to her family home and confront her troubled relationship with her mother. When human remains are discovered in the grounds of the house, Jo begins to question everything. Then an unexpected visitor knocks at the door and Jo's world is destroyed again as, one by one, she discovers her childhood memories aren't what they seemed. What secrets was her nanny hiding - and what was she running away from? And can Jo trust what her mother tells her? Sometimes the truth hurts so much you'd rather hear the lie. Just like Jocelyn, readers love THE NANNY: 'a gripping read with an original premise... I very much enjoyed all the characters' 'meaty and twisty ... armchair detectives will have a lot of fun with this' 'a compelling read ... I read it with a sense of fear and dread' 'Dare you get engrossed in this book? ... this is a book that should do really well' 'A spellbinding read' 'A lot of twists and turns ... it definitely grabbed my attention from the outset' 'From the first page I wanted to know all the dark secrets this family were hiding. It's a seriously addictive read and I never knew who to trust' AMY LLOYD, author of THE INNOCENT WIFE and ONE MORE LIE 'A brilliant blend of missing person drama with some seriously spooky Gothic overtones.' GLAMOUR MAGAZINE 'Secrets, lies, jealousy and betrayal... Elegantly structured and infused with a creeping sense of dread' SARAH VAUGHAN 'The plot sucked me in and the insidious build had me turning the pages rapidly' JANE SHEMILT 'The Nanny will make you doubt everyone - including yourself. Some families are built on a bedrock of lies. This one is no exception. Clever and deliciously addictive' JANE CORRY 'I was blown away by The Nanny. Original, twisty, unpredictable and taut with its buried secrets, the old creepy house and complex relationships. I never knew who to trust and the ending shocked me. This deserves to be huge!' CLAIRE DOUGLAS 'A tense, assured and atmospheric thriller which will keep you guessing from page one right through to the shocking denouement. Brilliantly absorbing' MEL McGRATH

Murder, Stage Left: A Nero Wolfe Mystery

Author: Robert Goldsborough Narrator: L. J. Ganser Release Date: May 2019

It's curtains for a famous Broadway director, and private investigator Nero Wolfe is on the case-but his assistant, Archie Goodwin, is a suspect. When a renowned theater director senses something amiss during his latest production, he calls in Nero Wolfe. Though the corpulent genius wouldn't normally accept a job this vague, a mutual friend dangles the prospect of a very rare orchid in exchange for his services, and Wolfe can't resist. With a mind to suss out useful backstage gossip, Wolfe turns to his faithful assistant, Archie Goodwin, to impersonate a journalist in order to speak to the cast. Though Goodwin's conversations prove unfruitful, on his last day at the theater, the director is murdered in his sound-proof booth, poisoned by an unseen culprit during an evening performance. In short order, an actor whose health is failing attempts suicide with the same poison. Now Archie Goodwin is a prime suspect in the director's demise, effectively sidelining him for the rest of the case, and freelance gumshoe Saul Panzer must step in to help wrangle the various members of the play-from the ingenue and the diva to the handsome movie star and the surly stage manager-so that New York's smartest, and most reclusive, private detective can determine who is responsible for these dramatic deaths and clear Goodwin's name once and for all. Continuing his beloved series, Nero Award-winning author Robert Goldsborough 'brings Nero Wolfe, late of Rex Stout, gloriously back to life' (Chicago magazine). Murder, Stage Left is the fifty-ninth book in the Nero Wolfe Mysteries, but all stories can be enjoyed on their own.

Into the Jungle Audiobook

Into the Jungle

Author: Erica Ferencik Narrator: Jayme Mattler Release Date: May 2019

Starred Publishers Weekly Review * A Publishers Weekly "Big Summer Books" * Featured in the New York Post Summer Round Up * A Crime by the Book "Most Anticipated" Novel In this pulse-pounding thriller from the author of the "haunting, twisting thrill ride" (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author) The River at Night, a young woman leaves behind everything she knows to take on the Bolivian jungle, but her excursion abroad quickly turns into a fight for her life. Lily Bushwold thought she'd found the antidote to endless foster care and group homes: a teaching job in Cochabamba, Bolivia. As soon as she could steal enough cash for the plane, she was on it. When the gig falls through and Lily stays in Bolivia, she finds bonding with other broke, rudderless girls at the local hostel isn't the life she wants either. Tired of hustling and already world-weary, crazy love finds her in the form she least expected: Omar, a savvy, handsome local man who'd abandoned his life as a hunter in Ayachero—a remote jungle village—to try his hand at city life. When Omar learns that a jaguar has killed his four-year-old nephew in Ayachero, he gives Lily a choice: Stay alone in the unforgiving city, or travel to the last in a string of ever-more-isolated river towns in the jungles of Bolivia. Thirty-foot anaconda? Puppy-sized spiders? Vengeful shamans with unspeakable powers? Love-struck Lily is oblivious. She follows Omar to this ruthless new world of lawless poachers, bullheaded missionaries, and desperate indigenous tribes driven to the brink of extinction. To survive, Lily must navigate the jungle--its wonders as well as its terrors—using only her wits and resilience. Primal, gripping, and terrifying, Into the Jungle features Erica Ferencik's signature "visceral, white-knuckle" (Entertainment Weekly) prose that will sink its fangs into you and not let go.
