The Wrong Girl

Author: Donis Casey Narrator: Romy Nordlinger Release Date: November 2019

Blanche Tucker longs to escape her drop-dead dull life in tiny Boynton, Oklahoma. Then dashing Graham Peyton roars into town. Posing as a film producer, Graham convinces the ambitious but naive teenager to run away with him to a glamorous new life. Instead, Graham uses her as cruelly as a silent-picture villain. Yet by luck and by pluck, taking charge of her life, she makes it to Hollywood. Six years later, Blanche has transformed into the celebrated Bianca LaBelle, the reclusive star of a series of adventure films, and Peyton's remains are discovered on a Santa Monica beach. Is there a connection? With all of the twists and turns of a 1920s melodrama, The Wrong Girl follows the daring exploits of a girl who chases her dream from the farm to old Hollywood, all while showing just how risky-and rewarding-it can be to go off-script.

Author: Neil White Narrator: Johnny Heller Release Date: November 2019

One freezing December night, the body of young, vulnerable Lizzie Barnsley is found on the side of an isolated canal. When blood from her stiletto heel matches that on a wound on the head of Peter Box, police swiftly declare him the prime suspect in her murder. Criminal lawyer Dan Grant is called in to provide Peter Box's legal defense, along with investigator Jayne Brett. They need answers from Box-but he's not talking. As they dig deeper into the case, they discover that this brutal slaying is just the latest in a series of deaths in the northern town of Highford, starting with the murder of teenager Rosie Smith a decade ago. Blood spatter linked her stepfather Sean Martin to the crime-so why did Peter Box try to claim he'd killed young Rosie? As the investigation deepens and more murders along the towpaths come to light-murders that can't be linked to Peter Box-Jayne and Dan realize that they have stumbled onto a dark conspiracy in their little town. It's clear Peter has something to hide, but is he a killer? Grant and Brett are plunged into a race against time to uncover the truth...before a twisted psychopath claims another victim.

Oklahoma's Atticus: An Innocent Man and the Lawyer Who Fought for Him Audiobook

Oklahoma's Atticus: An Innocent Man and the Lawyer Who Fought for Him

Author: Hunter Howe Cates Narrator: Pat Grimes Release Date: November 2019

Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1953: An impoverished Cherokee named Buster Youngwolfe confesses to brutally raping and murdering his eleven-year-old female relative. When Youngwolfe recants his confession, saying he was forced to confess by the authorities, his city condemns him, except for one man-public defender and Creek Indian Elliott Howe. Recognizing in Youngwolfe the life that could have been his if not for a few lucky breaks, Howe risks his career to defend Youngwolfe against the powerful county attorney's office. Forgotten today, the sensational story of the murder, investigation, and trial made headlines nationwide. Oklahoma's Atticus is a tale of two cities: oil-rich downtown Tulsa and the dirt-poor slums of north Tulsa, of two newspapers-each taking different sides in the trial-and of two men who were both born poor Native Americans but whose lives took drastically different paths. Oklahoma's Atticus is full of colorful characters, from the seventy-two-year-old mystic who predicted where the body was buried to the Kansas City sergeant who founded one of the most advanced forensics labs and pioneered the use of lie detector evidence and the ambitious assistant attorney who would rise to become the future governor of Oklahoma. At the same time, it's a story that explores issues that still divide our nation: police brutality and corruption; the effects of poverty, inequality, and racism in criminal justice; the power of the media; and the primacy of the presumption of innocence.

Final Option: 'The best one yet' Audiobook

Final Option: 'The best one yet'

Author: Boyd Morrison, Clive Cussler Narrator: Scott Brick Release Date: November 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. In Final Option, Juan Cabrillo fights the worst enemy from his past to the terrifying and unexpected ending created by the Grand Master of Adventure, Clive Cussler, in the latest action-packed thriller in his No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling series. When the CIA realizes the identities of three American spies in Brazil have been compromised, they turn to Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon to rescue the agents. What seems a routine operation turns out to be a trap designed by Juan Cabrillo's greatest enemy, a man driven by hate to seek the ultimate revenge. At the heart of the plot is a state-of-the-art ship that is identical to the Oregon: same weaponry, same technology, same ability to evade capture. The only thing it doesn't have is Cabrillo and his talented crew. But will they be enough to go up against the one ship that rivals their own? The crew of the Oregon must piece together a series of disturbing events, including the mysterious sinking of a nuclear attack submarine and the possible discovery of a WWI-era weapon that was thought to be lost in the jungles of Brazil, in the ultimate game of cat and mouse. A high-stakes high seas mission packed with page-turning intrigue and exhilarating suspense, Final Option proves once again that no one writes adventure like Clive Cussler.
